Fabric-Reinforced Dikes, Craney Island
Three fabric-reinforced test sections 300-, 400-, and 750-ft long were successfully constructed on very soft dredged material deposits within the Craney Island dredged material disposal...

Nebraska's Shrinking Platte River Channel: Biological Aspects and Implications
Since the completion of major water projects along Nebraska's Platte River system in 1941, vegetative encroachment and channel narrowing have substantially altered the central...

Nonlinear Seismic Analysis of Crane Structures

In-Plane Buckling of Crane Jibs with Toplis Reeving
This paper describes a method for determining the degree of in-plane restraint imposed by the load ropes at the jib head of luffing cranes with Toplis reeving. Stability relationships...

Analysis of Fatigue of Welded Crane Runway Girders
In recent years, mill building owners and constructors world-wide have observed structural distress in welded crane runway girders. The distress is in the form of fatigue cracks in the...

Paul Bunyan Among Offshore Steel Structures
The world's two largest drydocks, the larger 1,150 x 800 ft in plan were used to assemble on land the four steel jackets. They now stand in the North Sea in about 400-ft of...

Wheel Load Stress Concentrations on Crane Runway Girders

Fifty Years of Aluminum in Construction
The development of aluminum applications in construction equipment since l925 is reviewed. Preferred alloys, products, and methods of joining are examined as related to engines, vehicle...

Helicopter-Erected Tower Crane Demolishes Buildings
A signigicant logistics and scheduling problem existed for the demolition of these old buildings and the erection of a new one in the middle of an existing plant. Careful construction...

Analysis of Transportation Methods in Construction
Analytical evaluation of transportation time on a building site may be very helpful in site planning and balancing of construction activities. Three methods of transportation are analyzed:...

Behavior of Continuous Crane Rails
Continuous crane rails with welded splices are being used in industry to improve crane performance and to reduce maintenance costs associated with splice and rail clamp details. Rail lengths...

Out-of-Plane Buckling of Crane Booms
Herein the authors present a readily usable method for determination of out-of-plane elastic buckling loads of conventionally rigged crane booms without intermediate hitches....

Distribution of Crane Forces in Mill Buildings
The operation of overhead cranes in mill buildings may impose severe dynamic loads on the structure, particularly on single bent structures where transverse (lateral) forces from the travel...

Limit Design of Continuous Reinforced Concrete Crane Girders
The principles of optimum limit design are applied to 4-span continuous beams acted on by a pair of moving concentrated loads. Moment and shear redistribution in reinforced concrete continuous...
