Quantifying Ductility in Continuous Composite Beams

The Long-Term Behaviour of Composite Columns

Pipeline Curvature by Polynomial Approximation
Since start-up of the trans-Alaska pipeline in June of 1977, a variety of techniques have been investigated to monitor pipe settlement and evaluate associated pipe integrity. During the...

Latticed Dome Collapse Prediction Due to Settlement

Design Procedure for Stability of Reticulated Single-Layer Domes

Optimum Cut-Outs on Plate Stability
Cut-outs are unavoidable in some of the plate components. To minimize the plate weight, in the meantime, to maintain the critical buckling load as high as possible is one of the major...

Local Buckling and Cyclic Behavior of Tubular Members
The effect of the local buckling is included in the cyclic analysis of tubular members. The cyclic moment-curvature curves are obtained numerically. Three types of closed form expressions...

Cyclic Behavior of Concrete-Filled Tubes
This paper presents the results of tests on hollow and concrete-filled rectangular tubes subjected to cyclic bending and buckling. It is shown that concrete infill greatly improves the...

Stability and Limit Loads of Steel Space Trusses
An investigation of the behavior of cold-formed steel space truss structures, under the interaction of local, member, and overall buckling is described. A Finite Element computer program...

Flexibly Connected Thin-Walled Steel Frame Response
The static response of flexibly connected plane frames composed of thin-walled steel members is presented. Analysis capabilities include post-local-buckling strength and elastic semi-rigid...

Buckling of Thin-Walled Members by p-Version of FEM
P-Version of the finite element method (FEM) is used for one-D and three-D modeling of thin-walled open sections and axial compressive load. Equal angle and channel sections are used for...

Bending Strength of Thin Cold-Formed Steel Straight Panels
An experimental investigation on the bending strength of 26 gage cold-formed corrugated steel straight panels with web-depth to thickness (h/t) ratio of 475 is presented. A typical test...

Circular Tubes and Shells 4th Edition of SSRC Guide
The 3rd edition of the Guide was the first to have a chapter devoted to Cylindrical Tubes and Shells. Chapter 14 in the 4th edition is a major revision of Chapter 10 in the previous edition....

Recent Developments of the Finite Strip Method
The finite strip method is approaching a state of maturity as a structural analysis technique, as the well known finite element method has done. Two comprehensive (although somewhat dated)...

Berthing Simulation Method for Fender System
For the design of marine fender systems, berthing and mooring forces should be taken into account. Berthing forces are considered in this paper. A unique berthing simulation method has...

Restoration of Navy LTA (Lighter Than Air) Hangars
In 1942 and 1943 the Government constructed a series of 16 blimp hangars at ten Naval Air Stations along the east coast, west coast and gulf coast. The hangars erected in pairs housed...

Some Applications of Fourier Series in Structural Optimization
This paper discusses the application of the method of truncated Fourier series to problems of structural optimization. It begins with a discussion of the range of the method which has...

Experimental Investigation of Buckling Strength of Steel Box Girder Bridges

Spalling and Buckling of Ice Sheets
The effect of local eccentricity in the vertical direction on the magnitude of compressive strength of wide ice sheets is studied theoretically. Two new failure modes are identified: indentation...

Buckling of Flexibly-Joined Simple Frames
A nonlinear analysis of plane elastic frames is presented. The static loading consists of both eccentric concentrated loads (near the joints) and uniformly distributed loads on all or...
