Comparison of Slitted and Non-Slitted R. C. Shear Walls With Boundary Elements Under Horizontal Forces
This paper compares the differences of aseismic behaviours between slitted and non-slitted shear walls under horizontal forces. There are 5 specimens for slitted shear walls and another...

Seismic Strengthening of a Tall Masonry Building
The design of a strengthening system for a tall building is proposed using ductile reinforced masonry shear walls. This innovative design concept produced a system that controlled the...

Development of Inelastic Reduction Factors to Provide an Elastic Design Procedure
R factor values can only be rationally selected when they are based on in part nonlinear inelastic dynamic analyses of building system types. However, it is informative to discuss the...

Jet Grouting to Construct a Soilcrete Wall Using a Twin Stem System
An existing coal loading pier located in Norfolk, Virginia was completed in 1961 for the purpose of loading ocean going ships. It was determined that dredging adjacent to the pier would...

Sulfated Polysaccharides from Marine Invertebrates
The authors Laboratory is involved in the chemical and structural determination of sulfated polysaccharides from different sources. The main purpose of such studies is to compare these...

Structural Design, Analysis and Testing
This volume contains the papers presented in 21 sessions of the 1989 Structures Congress held in San Francisco. The papers cover a wide range of topics including types of construction...

Interfacial Instability in Highly Stratified Flows
The stability of highly stratified shear flows is dependent on several parameters including the thickness of the interfacial transition layer. Experimental results show that the thickness...

The Role of Vegetation in River Bank Erosion
The purpose of this paper is to describe briefly how streambank vegetation, both roots and shoots, modify the 'skin' or surface layer and how this in turn affects...

Sediment Ramping at Mill Creek
A Corps of Engineers study completed in 1988 analyzed this ramping phenomenon Mill Creek in Southern California Using an approach which combined sedimentation research with Corps experience...

Nonlinear Seismic Analysis of a Thick-Walled Concrete Canyon Structure

Panel-Sheathed Shear Walls — Past and Future
In order for a building to resist the lateral forces caused by wind or earthquake, it is necessary that the building include a lateral force resisting system. When the walls are designed...

Stablity Considerations in the New E&CS Building
The new Engineering and Computer Science (E & CS) building at California State University, Sacramento (CSUS) is a five-story structure characterized by two shear walls in the east-west...

Transferring Construction Innovation into Practice: Lessons Learned
The paper presents several cases that illustrate the value of a systems approach in the need for aggressive and persistent exploitation despite early set-backs, and the unsatisfactory...
