Buckling of Guyed Towers
The buckling load of a column guyed in a plane by symmetric guy wires is considered. The column is built-in at the ground, supported at the top by guy wires, and is loaded by a vertical...

Ambient Vibration Response of a Long Span Bridge
Natural frequencies, mode shapes and damping characteristics for a long-span cable-stayed bridge were experimentally determined from a series of ambient vibration tests for both the cantilever...

Geothermal and Hydropower Production in Iceland
This paper will first consider the technical aspects of both hydropower and geothermal power production in Iceland. Then the economic consequences of the alternative utilization of these...

Computer Analysis of Cable-Stayed & Suspension Bridges
The finite element structural analysis of long span bridges is an area of research that has been studied within the past thirty years since the development and emergence of the digital...

Time-Dependent Nonlinear Analysis of Cable-Supported Prestressed Concrete Bridges
A method of analysis and a computer program CFRAME for the material and geometric nonlinear analysis of cable-supported planar prestressed concrete bridges including the time-dependent...

Non-linear Analysis of a Cable Stayed Bridge
A concrete single-pylon cable-stayed bridge has been analyzed to investigate the ultimate capacity. Two different methods were used to investigate the nonlinear behaviour. First, a simplified...

Computer-Aided Guyed Tower Analysis for the Rehabilitation of TTI Tower, Baltimore
A large guyed television tower owned by Television Tower Inc. of Baltimore is currently being analyzed in order to evaluate the capacity of the tower to support additional broadcasting...

Traffic Signal Management Utilizing Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cable technology has progressed from the pioneer stage and is becoming a widely accepted method of data transmission. Utilization for traffic signal systems, however, is not...

Cable-in-Conduit Superconductors for MAGLEV Magnet Systems
A major advantage of using a Nb3Sn Cable-in-Conduit Conductor (CICC) for MAGLEV lies in its demonstrated capability to operate in supercritical helium....

Cable-tied Concrete Block Erosion Protection
An articulated concrete erosion protection system is investigated as a possible revetment for bridge piers to be used in place of the traditional rip-rap revetment. The system consists...

Hybrid Lifted Structure for the Collserola Tower
The structure of the 300 m. Collserola Tower is a hybrid system formed by three combined structural systems consisting of: - a very slender cylindrical concrete shaft: - a large steel...

Depth of Cover Surveys for Waterway Crossings
The majority of pipelines cross at least one waterway of some type, especially the interstate lines which from start to end cross numerous bayous, canals and major rivers. These waterways...

Database for Pipeline Bridges in North America
Work began in 1985 at Wayne State University on a research study of pipeline suspension bridges. This effort, which was funded by ANR Pipeline Company of Detroit, Michigan, investigated...
