Inelastic Response of Restrained Steel Tubes

*Eighteen specimens made from 1 in. (25-mm) square tubes with welded gusset plates were tested under repeated axial loading. Length of the specimens varied from 20 in. to 54 in. (510mm...*

Impedance Functions of Piles in Layered Media

*An approximate analytical solution is established that makes it possible to calculate impedance functions (stiffness and damping) of a single pile embedded in layered media. The pile can...*

The Poisson Effect in a Column with Axial Strain

*The writer's previous work on buckling and post-buckling of a column with axial strain is generalized by allowing the cross sections along the member to change size and shape...*
