Crack Detection in Beams - Sensitivity Studies

Emergency Repairs for Storrow Drive Tunnel

How to Optimize Light-Gage, Cold-Formed Steel Beams
The Illustrative Examples section of the AISI Cold-Formed Steel Design Manual (AISI 1989) demonstrates how to analyze a number of different cold-formed steel sections. This paper applies...

Finite Element Analysis of Shear in RC Girders
Two complementary approaches are presented to model the shear behaviour of reinforced concrete structures. A local one, based on a probabilistic modelling of cracking, accounts for local...

Shear Failure of Concrete Beams Reinforced with Plates

Design of Box Girder Bridges by Nonlinear Theory
A modified design procedure applicable to a large number of conventional box girder bridges with longitudinally-stiffened flanges has been presented in this paper. It determines the ultimate...

Low Frequency Radio Astronomy from Earth or Lunar Orbit
Acquiring data at low frequencies is complicated by the fact that the ionosphere strongly disturbs the data, especially for high-resolution ground-based telescopes. The most viable observational...

Continuity in Precast Prestressed Concrete Girder Bridges
An experimental study conducted to evaluate the behavior of pretensioned bridge members made continuous with a cast-in-place concrete slab and diaphragm is summarized. In this study, the...

High-Strength Concrete Columns: State of the Knowledge
This paper consists of reported information divided into two general categories, performance of High-Strength Concrete (HSC) columns under concentric loads, and combined axial and bending...

FRP Box-Beams Under Long-Time Static and Fatigue Loading
This paper discusses experimental and analytical aspects of the long-time behavior of filament wound E-glass fiber reinforced epoxy-box-beams. Theoretical and experimental data are compared...

Shear Effects on the Static Behaviour of Stiffened Pierced Walls

Evaluation of Fiber Optic Bragg Grating Strain Sensor in High Strength Concrete Beams

Controlling the Seismic Behavior of Precast Concrete
Precast concrete has, through the years the years, acquired a bad reputation insofar as its ability to withstand earthquake is concerned. This reputation, though reasonably based, is not...

Seismic Behavior of Weak-Column Strong-Beam Frames
An experimental evaluation of the seismic performance of moment-resisting steel frames using Weak-Column Strong-Beam joints is described. A simulated seismic response is imposed on five...

Blast-Damaged Concrete Structures in Beirut
This paper describes the effect of blasting loads on structural members. It identifies predominant structural systems in war-damaged zones of Beirut and to explain typical damage mechanisms....

Joint Design in Composite Columns/Steel Beam Structures
The use of a composite building system, utilizing a composite exterior column and a concrete spandrel beam system, proposed by Dr. Fazlur Khan in 1967, is recalled. In the last 25 years,...

Axial Capacity of Concrete Infilled Steel Box Column with Biaxial Bending
The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using the Bresler reciprocal load method to calculate the axial capacity of a concrete infilled steel box column subjected...

Inelastic Bridge Rating Procedures for Steel-Girder Bridges
Current bridge rating procedures for steel beam and girder bridges ignore the ability of the structure to redistribute forces both longitudinally and laterally. When rating steel bridges...

Modal Analysis Technique for Bridge Damage Detection
The dynamic responses of a wide-flange steel beam with artificially introduced cracks were studied analytically and experimentally. Frequencies, displacement mode shapes (DMS) and strain...

Seismic Design of Steel Beam-to-Box Column Connections
This paper is a study of the ductility requirements of steel beam-to-box column connections using the bolted beam web and welded beam flange details. Since the beam moment at the connection...
