Design of Monosymmetric Sections in Flexure
Monosymmetric members are generally I-shaped, symmetrical about the plane of the web, and characteristically have a larger compression flange than tension flange. Examples are crane girders...

Composite Beams and Joists
Composite beams and joists used as flexural members in multistory steel-frame buildings are considered. Research results have shown that present design values for headed shear studs, used...

Interaction Between Beam and Steel Connections
The overall objective of the investigation is to study the behavior of a particular steel connection type, flush end plate steel connections, subjected to shear, axial forces, and possibly...

Flexural and Shear Behavior of Combined Concrete and Graphite Epoxy Beams
An experimental and analytical study of six graphite composite beams are presented. Four of the beams incorporated a reinforced concrete slab. The composite action and the effect of concrete...

Seismic Resistance of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Beam-Column Joints
This paper discusses the advantages of using steel fibers in seismic resistant beam-column connections. First, the effects of fibers on the various aspects of behavior of concrete are...

The Innovative Concept of Semi-rigid Composite Beam
This paper discusses invention and development of a new type of composite beam called 'Semi-rigid Composite Beam.' This new type of beam is expected to behave better than presently used...

A Comparative Study of Different Steel Fibers in Shotcrete
Two steel fiber reinforced shotcrete (sfrs) test programs have been carried out in eastern Canada using steel fibers which are available in the north American marketplace. The first program...

Modeling Beam Torsion in Prestressed Concrete Box Beam Bridges
This paper briefly summarizes the development of a specialized finite element model capable of predicting the elastic and inelastic behavior of beam-slab type prestressed concrete spread...

GT BEAM — An Interactive Graphic Beam Analysis Program for Education
An interactive beam analysis program called GT BEAM, that has been developed at Georgia Tech for use in undergraduate mechanics courses, is presented. The development objectives of the...

Thin-Walled Finite Element for Curved Multicell Box Girders
The generalized Vlasov's thin-walled beam theory was combined with the finite element technique to develop a new curved thin-walled multicell box girder finite element which can model...

The Use of Numerical Rule Processors in Engineering Calculations
A Numerical Rule Processor uses a declarative approach to the processing of engineering calculations. The rules which link the parameters are set out in a separate rule base and the order...

Dynamic Study on New Guideway Structure for JR Maglev
This paper presents an introduction of the study for the design and technical development of a newly proposed guideway structure for the superconductive magnetically levitated train system...

New Canadian Provisions Related to the Design of Composite Beams
In this paper, the new provisions in CAN/CSA-S16.1-M89 for the design of composite beams, together with reasons for changes, are discussed. Some of the new provisions reflect results of...

Composite Beams: Redistribution, Reliability, and Lateral Buckling
Research relevant to three aspects of the design of composite beams for ultimate limit states is summarized. These are: the redistribution in continuous beams and in framed structures...

Two Full-Scale Tests of Class 3 Composite Beams
This paper presents two tests of continuous composite beams comprising two 7.5 m spans and two concentrated loads close to the intermediate support. Although the cross-sections on the...

Composite Space Frame—Experimental/Analytical Study
This paper describes work carried out on a composite space frame system. The system, previously developed for roof construction, comprised a pyramidal arrangement of steel angles and circular...

Slim-Floor Beams: Design Criteria and Structural Behaviour
Partially concrete-encased steel beams are mostly employed due to their natural resistance to fire, but there may also be other reasons, e.g. to obtain smaller depths of construction....

Comparison of Simple Calculation Methods for the Fire Design of Composite Columns and Beams
There is a need for approximate calculation methods to do the fire design of composite structures. Several of such methods for composite beams and columns have been compared to find out...

Design of Shear Connectors in Composite Bridge Beams
A new approach is described for the design of stud shear connectors, in composite steel and concrete beams that are subjected to vehicular loads, which allows for the interaction between...

The Steel Deck Institute Method for Composite Slab Design
The Steel Deck Institute (SDI) of the USA has synthesized the composite slab research and testing that has been conducted in the U.S. during the past 25 years and has presented a design...
