Arena of Books
The new Qatar National Library features a folded design with cantilevered corners on the exterior, while inside, an enormous single space for reading or socializing offers terraces stacked with bookshelves....

Reconstructed With Precision
Rehabilitating a heavily traveled crossing while traffic continues to flow is a complicated endeavor. Add the attention to detail required to preserve the character of a historic 1920's...

Box Girder Balancing Act
On November 18, 1999, cranes lowered into place the last of 202 precast concrete segments that form the main span of the new Sagadahoc Bridge, a $46.6 million crossing that boasts the...

Above Them All
The design for what would be the next world's tallest building relies on a 1,550 ft (472 m) high concrete core that will give occupants of the top floors of the building unimpeded...

State of the Arts
The complicated structural engineering that went into the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, Texas, allows patrons and performers to focus fully on the arts, and...

Talmadge Bridge Replacement
This paper discusses the design of the main spans and approach spans for the replacement of the Talmadge Bridge for the Georgia Department of Transportation. The design of the concrete...

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...

The Normandie Bridge
The Normandie Bridge will have one of the longest cable-stayed spans in the world, i.e. 856 m long. This paper briefly describes the design of the bridge, with the concrete access spans...

Design of Frames Using Notional Horizontal Force
The cantilever columns and portal frames are studied by using the notional horizontal force design concept. This concept intends to eliminate K-factor in the frame design. It was found...
