Effect of Column-to-Beam Strength Ratio on Seismic Performance of RC Moment Frames
Reinforced concrete (RC) moment frames are often used in building applications. During strong earthquake excitations, such buildings have been subject to soft-story or column sidesway...

New Concepts in Structural Strength Assessment for Large Buildings in Fire
This paper presents theoretical descriptions of the key phenomena that govern the behaviour of composite framed structures in fire. These descriptions have been developed in parallel with...

Cyclic Behavior of Three-Dimensional Partially-Restrained Composite Connections
This paper describes the test of a full-scale, bi-directional, PR composite beam-to-column connection. The PR connection consisted of continuous reinforcement bars across the column and...

Concrete Delivers
The latest addition to the skyline of Shanghai, China, is a strikingly slender all-concrete 62-story office tower. It is the city's tallest all-concrete building, achieving...

Bridge to the Future
An arched footbridge under construction in Seoul, South Korea, that is reconnecting the metropolis with a tranquil island, will demonstrate the compressive strength and sleek design potential...

Keeping It Together
A new framing system for precast concrete columns and beams will allow tall buildings to withstand large earthquakes without damage to the structural integrity of the building. By using...

Sum of the Parts
As with all of the bay bridges that serve as life lines to the San Francisco peninsula, the 32-year-old San Mateo Bridge needs strengthening to withstand a maximum credible earthquake...

Scenic-Bridge Strengthening (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue only)
Built in 1937, California's Big Creek Bridge—a double-arch crossing with half-arch side spans—was due for a seismic retrofit. Challenged by the structure's unique...

Inside Job
River Mill Dam is a large Ambursen (buttress type) dam constructed in 1911 on the Clackamas River in Oregon. The preliminary and final design phase of the seismic upgrade project coincided...

Added Protection
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is modifying the 335 ft (102 m) high Casitas Dam in Ventura County, California, to withstand a magnitude 6.9 earthquake. The modification includes strengthening...

Verdict Rendered
After the Grays Harbor County Courthouse in Montesano, Washington, was severely damaged by an earthquake in 1999, the surrounding community decided to preserve it. A design/build approach...

The Viable Alternative
The Benicia-Martinez Bridge is a high-level, welded deck truss bridge that carries Interstate 680 over the eastern end of the Carquinez Strait near San Francisco. To bring the bridge into...

Evaluation of KeySystem I Retaining Wall
Prepared by the Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC), a CERF Innovation Center. This report describes an evaluation to determine...
