Flanged Reinforced Concrete Flexural Members
Design aids in the forms of charts and tables are available for design of reinforced concrete flexural members. Many of these design aids were developed for design of rectangular cross...

Pipelines in Adverse Environments II
State of the art and future trends in pipeline design, construction and maintenance are reviewed. Specific areas addressed include adverse terrain conditions, river crossings-particularly...

Uniform Element Modeling of Tapered Frame Members
Prismatic members of structural frameworks are conventionally analysed by using a simplified model supplied by the engineering beam theory. The paper considers the possibility of extending...

Plane Curved Beam Equations
It is demonstrated that plane curved beam (rectangular cross-section) equilibrium equations can be obtained by reducing the established equations for thin shells. The necessary equations...

Bed Load Fluctuation: Applications
Based on the distribution of transport rate, the fluctuation of bed load and its application to hydrological measurement have been studied. The variance and coefficient of variation of...

Nonuniform Laminar Free-Surface Flow
Industrial flow processes involving molten substances or other highly viscous liquids frequently make use of conveyance by open channels. A one-dimensional analysis is undertaken of laminar...

Reliability of Aluminum Beam-Columns
A review of reliability computation methods is presented. The strength of aluminum beam-columns is described, taking into account material and cross-sectional properties, initial imperfection...

Acrosswind Response of Buildings
The acrosswind response of buildings is investigated. Expressions for the acrosswind loading are developed through the use of the spatio-temporal measurement of the fluctuating pressure...

Beam Idealization
For any given bemm with varying cross-section and material properties, it is easy to evaluate a number of parameters Qi and Di,...

Prestressed Concrete Flexural Members: Design
An alternate method for the design of prestressed concrete flexural members using the service load criteria is presented. The method differs from other available methods, in the sense...

Tabular Representation of Cross-Sectional Elements
A convenient and consistent method for representing the top width, area, first moment of area, and second moment of area for an irregular stream cross section is presented. The variation...

Lateral Buckling Tests on Welded Continuous Beams
Twenty-one two-span continuous beams with nominally identical cross sections of welded I-250x100x6x8 mm are tested in seven groups of three, each group having different span length. These...

Fluctuating Wind Loads on Buildings
A method for evaluating the fluctuating wind forces and their distribution on buildings has been developed and applied to the understanding and quantification of crosswind loads on a square...

Channel Design to Minimize Lining Material Costs
A direct algebraic technique is developed to determine open channel cross-sectional designs which minimize lining material costs when base and side wall unit costs are different. Solution...

Zero-Inertia Modeling of Furrow Irrigation Advance
The rate of advance of the water front in furrows has been mathematically modeled using a zero-inertia approach, in which the surface water hydraulics are simplified by neglecting accelerations....

Sampling to Characterize Stream Plumes
New perspectives are offered on taking samples to determine pollutant concentrations in a stream cross section. By combining plume simulation with a gradient search curve fitting procedure,...

Unstable Turbulent Flow in Open Channels
Controversy on the determination of the friction factor, f, for turbulent flow in open channels of rectangular cross section has existed among previous investigators. A number of them...

Self-Formed Straight Channels in Sandy Beds
The hydraulic geometry and the local features of straight, relatively wide self-formed channels composed of sandy bed are studied in laboratory flumes. Introduction of one loose and the...

Rehabilitation of Sanitary Sewer Pipelines
An extensive investigation into the methods and materials available for use in rehabilitating sanitary sewers is presented. Information has been developed on the features and benefits...

Warping Restraint in Three-Dimensional Frames
The general solution of the restrained warping of beams in three-dimensional frames has been developed. The general beam strain-displacement relations are used in developing a finite element...
