Design of Isolated Structures
This chapter examines the design of isolated structures. Topics include governing design codes; design of isolated buildings; design of isolated bridges and viaducts; and issues related...

Analysis
This chapter presents a brief overview of the current analytical modeling techniques for isolated structures. Perhaps the biggest challenge in the design of an isolated structure is incorporating...

Reaching for the Sky
Tapei 101—soon to open its doors as the world's tallest building—will resist devastating typhoons, earthquakes, and sway with an ingenious system of outrigger trusses, supercolumns,...

Making the Grade
Adding two lanes to a stretch of highway in western Colorado required excavation on slopes and involved micropiles, mechanically stabilized earth walls, ground anchors, and soil nails....

A More Perfect Union
Established to promote greater public understanding of the United States Constitution, the National Constitution Center facility in Philadelphia is a structure of complex geometries articulated...

Life-Cycle Environmental Accounting and Decision-Making for Bridge Structures
This presentation focuses on life-cycle environmental accounting and decision-making for bridge structures using the example of steel and steel-reinforced concrete....

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...

Torsion of Reinforced Concrete -A Historical Overview
The story of torsion of reinforced concrete must start with the French professor, C. L. Navier. In his landmark book (Navier, 1826) he rigorously derived the first rational theory for...

Overview of Structural Behavior of Members Subjected to Torsion
The torsion strength of concrete beams depends on many factors, such as the amount of reinforcement, the volumetric ratios of longitudinal and transverse steel bars, the concrete strength,...

Advances in Analytical Modeling of Torsional Members
The basic formula for calculating the torsional strength of reinforced concrete members was developed by Rausch (1929) using the space truss concept. Unfortunately, Rausch's equation may...

Members Subjected to Torsion Combined with Other Actions
The combination of torsion with bending and shear (T-M-V) in members with both transverse and longitudinal reinforcement is the most commonly encountered combination in practical cases....

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...

Structural Expression in Wind Sensitive Structures
Architectural details can impact both the local cladding pressures on a structure as well as the overall structural response. Figure 1 shows a pair of roof corner vortices on the upper...

A Tale of Two Towers: The Foundations
In preparing two lots in New York City's Times Square as sites for modern skyscrapers, engineers devised foundations and structural systems that would allow for subway lines,...
