Reliability Analysis

Tying It All Together
The Rancocas Greek Bridge, a steel tied arch designed for both light-rail and freight train loading, may be the first bridge of its kind to carry freight trains in the United States....

Micropiles to the Rescue
When a Michigan energy concern began upgrading the equipment in one of its operating power plants, engineers were asked to find an economical and nondisruptive way to support the new loads...

Flexural Behavior of Slender Post-Tensioned Masonry Walls
The 2002 edition of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC, 2002) design provisions for masonry structures includes a chapter on the design of post-tensioned masonry (PTM) walls with...

Detailing and Design Examples for Torsional Members
The nature of the internal force flow in a concrete member subject to torsion brings about both longitudinal and transverse force components. The resulting tension brought about by the...

Symbol of Strength
Shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing, the federal government decided to rebuild. The result is an architectural gem incorporating the latest advances in blast resistance and sustainable...

Power Shift
Engineers designing a Manhattan skyscraper with offices in the lower floors and residences in the upper found that they had to employ several unusual methods to accommodate client needs....

The Pentagon Report
The findings of the building performance study conducted following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the Pentagon have far-reaching implications for the engineering and building...

Review of Stabilization of Clays and Expansive Soils in Pavements and Lightly Loaded Structures—History, Practice, and Future
Expansive clay soils—those that change significantly in volume with changes in water content—are the cause of distortions to structures that cost taxpayers several billion dollars annually...

Atmospheric Corrosion Resistance of Structural Steels
The main objective of this paper is to provide engineers with data on thickness loss of structural steel members resulting from corrosion. To this end, the writers have collected atmospheric...

Assessing Long-Term Pollutant Concentration Trends in Urban Runoff for TMDL Planning and Regulatory Assessment
Loads of some pollutants in many urban watersheds include a substantial component originating with non-point sources and stormwater runoff. TMDL planning includes estimating those loads,...

Nonionic Organic Solute Sorption to Two Organobentonites as a Function of Organic-Carbon Content
Sorption of three nonionic organic solutes (benzene, trichloroethene, and 1,2-dichlorobenzene) to hexadecyltrimethylammonium-bentonite (HDTMA-bentonite) and benzyltriethylammonium-bentonite...

Stability and Loads
This chapter examines stability and loads. Topics include stability and lateral load resistance during construction; effective lengths of cantilever columns; effect on stability of frame...

Design Loads
This chapter discusses the types of loadings that should be considered when designing overhead power lines utilizing fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) poles. For infrastructure applications...

Loading Requirements for FRP Poles Utilized in other than Utility Line Applications

Wind Load Provisions
This chapter discusses the different procedures for evaluating design wind loads for buildings....

Examples
In this chapter, twelve examples illustrate how wind loads are determined using the simplified and analytical procedures described in ASCE 7-02. These examples provide guidance to the...

Winged Victory
Located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, the $100 million, 142,050 sq ft (13,100 m³) addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum is the creation of architect, artist, and engineer Santiago...

Up into the Sky
What is the future of the skyscraper? The events of September 11 have sparked numerous questions regarding the history and future of tall buildings in America, and before the World Trade...
