Seismic Analysis of Concrete Towers of the San Diego–Coronado Bridge and Evaluation of a High Performance Concrete Retrofit

Use of Reclaimed Water in Cooling Towers
The Mobil Oil Torrance Refinery is a modem fuels refinery in Los Angeles County. Like all crude oil refineries, it requires a reliable supply of water for process cooling, steam generation,...

Structural Consequences of Imperfection in Thin-Walled Components

Visualizing the Flow
Digital modeling of passive cooling techniques now enables engineers to create comfortable environments in even the most unlikely of spaces—including glass atriums in the desert. Passive...

Balancing on the Tides
Using a system of pivoting, barge-mounted towers, a Virginia contractor floated bridge segments into position 120 ft above the York River, reducing costs and cutting erection time by nearly...

Collapse Analysis of a 190 M Guyed Mast

Hydraulic Model Investigation of Submerged Vanes for the Intake Structure at Fort Calhoun Station

Numeric Simulation for Temperature Field of Water Intake and Discharge in Plateau Areas

Test Experience with Heavy Angle Dead End Lattice Transmission Towers
During the past three years, the Electric Power Research Institute's Transmission Line Mechanical Research Center has conducted full scale tests on three 500kV heavy angle dead end lattice...

Assessment and Upgrade of an Older Transmission Line
This paper discusses the various tools and procedures which have been used to assess and upgrade an older 130 kv tower line. The purpose of the assessment was to determine the line compliance...

ASCE GUIDE for Design of Guyed Transmission Structures
This paper describes the contents of a new ASCE guide for the selection and design of guyed electrical transmission structures. Guyed transmission structures present unique analysis and...

Construction of the Baytown Bridge, Houston
Connecting Baytown and LaPorte, the Baytown Bridge is a twin structure with four traffic lanes each. Its structure is designed as a cable-stayed bridge with concrete towers and composite...

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,...

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...

Ultimate Strength of R/C Cooling Tower Shell
Reinforced concrete(R/C) cooling towers are the largest, thin shell structures. It is important to assess the ultimate strength of R/C cooling tower shells subjected to wind load. In the...

Repair of a Cracked Cooling Tower Shell Based on Numerical Simulations
The present condition of a 30 years old cooling tower shell made of reinforced concrete is characterized by a relatively large number of long, thermally induced meridional cracks. For...

Uplift Load-Displacement Behavior of Grillage Foundations
Full-scale field tests were conducted on steel grillage foundations for lattice transmission line towers that had been in place since 1929, 1947, and 1958. A total of eight tests were...

Pittsburgh Goes International
The size of the new $785 million Pittsburgh International Airport—900 developed acres—is twice the size of the city's Golden Triangle business district but occupies only a...

Aeroelastic Study of Long Span Suspension Bridges: the Messina Crossing
This paper deals with wind actions on long-span suspension bridges. Particular reference is made to the Messina Strait Crossing. Problems encountered in this study, both for deck and towers,...

Wind Tunnel Testing for the Great Belt East Suspension Bridge
This paper provides an overview of model tests conducted to study and predict the aerodynamic behavior of the proposed streamlined box-girder suspension bridge for the Great Belt Link....
