Transient Response of Guyed Telecommunication Towers Subjected to Cable Ice-Shedding
This paper presents the results of a numerical study of the transient response of guyed telecommunication towers subjected to sudden ice shedding from the guy wires. Detailed nonlinear...

The Georgia Dome and Beyond: Achieving Lightweight - Longspan Structures
In the last two decades, the development of longspan roof structures has undergone a quantum leap. The introduction of steel structures, fabric structures, Bucky Fuller's tensegrity structure,...

Dynamic Analysis of Unstable Structural Systems With Prescribed Velocities
Structural systems that have large inextentional deformation, or in other words, deformation without stain are called 'Unstable Structural Systems.' They include cable structures, membrane...

Monitoring Stay Cable Forces During Construction of the Natchez Trace Parkway Arch Bridge
This paper describes how cable-stay forces were indirectly quantified through the use of simple field measurements. A system was developed and delivered to the contractor and used to make...

Innovations in Major Suspension Bridge Design
Before the Tacoma disaster, the trend in bridge-building is on increasing slenderness. But since its occurrence, a high degree of aerodynamic stability is required. Presented are designs...

Seismic Behaviour of Tall Guyed Telecommunication Towers
This paper presents results of a detailed numerical modelling study of two guyed telecommunication towers subjected to seismic excitation: a 107-m (350 ft) tower with six stay levels,...

Synthetic Wind for Investigations in Time-Domain
Buffeting investigations of large bridges carried out in time-domain permit modelling of the non-linearity of the system and wind force. Correct simulation of the natural wind plays a...

Using Drop Structures for Stream Gaging
A long term monitoring program of 15 watersheds, for the purpose of studying channel response to erosion control measures being constructed in north Mississippi, is being conducted by...

Cable-Stayed Convention Center
Big convention center brings big money. For that reason, officials in Kansas City, Mo. hoped to double the size of the Bartle Hall Convention Center. Little available land, however, surrounded...

Nonlienar Seismic Response Analysis of Shanghai Yangpu Bridge
The Yangpu Bridge is a long-span composite cable-stayed Bridge in which the superstructures is designed as a floating system to withstand the strong earthquakes. The nonlinear seismic...

Wind Design and Analysis for the Normandy Bridge
The Normandy Bridge will represent an important progress in the field of cable-stayed bridges, with a main span 856-metre long. This paper explains how the design has been oriented to...

A Wind Tunnel Study of an Aeroelastic Model of the Florida Suncoast Dome
Very large scale cable domes have been built using prestressed, high strength steel cable or strand, steel tube columns and a lightweight fiberglass skin. Geiger Engineers Florida Suncoast...
