Buckling of Thin-Walled Members by p-Version of FEM
P-Version of the finite element method (FEM) is used for one-D and three-D modeling of thin-walled open sections and axial compressive load. Equal angle and channel sections are used for...

Save the Walls
A rehabilitation job in name only, the 75 year old Army and Navy Club, a landmark located in Washington D.C.'s Golden Triangle, retained only two of its 80 ft high exterior...

Coastal Erosion on the Barrier Islands of Pinellas County, West-central Florida

Assessment of Pore Fluid Effects Using Flexible Wall and Consolidation Permeameters
Hydraulic conductivity tests were conducted on compacted soil specimens prepared at activities of 0. 36, 0. 60, 1. 00 and 1. 39 at a fine fraction of 25 percent. Na-montmorillonite, Georgia...

Protection of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse
Historic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse has recently become threatened by shoreline erosion. Shore protection measures for the lighthouse are summarized and shoreline changes and erosion rates...

Nonlinear Analysis of RC Panels Under In-Plane Loading
A new concrete material model based on a modified Mohr-Coulomb criterion is proposed for the nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete panels. Emphases are made on the softening behavior...

Tiedback Walls Untie Intersection
The intersection of Gallows Rd. and Arlington Blvd. in Virginia's Fairfax County required separation. Tiedback retaining walls, which required only 18 in. instead of the 18-22...

Analysis of RC Walls by Plastic-Fracturing Theory

Discrete Limit Analysis of R/C Shear Walls

Analysis of Shear Wall Based on Collins Panel Test

Nonlinear Analysis of Shear Walls with Numerous Small Openings

Nonlinear Behavior of Precast Concrete Shear Walls under Simulated Earthquake Loading
This paper presents experimental and analytical results on precast concrete shear walls under earthquake loading. It was observed in both small scale models tested and the computer analysis...

Hysteretic Behavior of Composite Diaphragms
Floor systems constructed with steel-deck-reinforced concrete are described. When used to resist lateral loads these systems are referred to as diaphragms. A description of a test arrangement,...

Behaviour of Full-Scale Reinforced Concrete Structure on Realistic Foundation
A full-scale seven-story reinforced concrete building, tested as a part of U. S. -Japan Cooperative Research Program, performed well even under a severe earthquake loading condition. Nonlinear...

Flexural Behavior of Reinforced Masonry Walls and Beams
Many reinforced masonry walls and beams were tested as a part of the U. S. -Japan cooperative research program on masonry building structures. Six concrete block and two clay brick masonry...

Dynamic Behavior of Full-Scale Wood Diaphragms
Experimental testing of full-scale wood diaphragms has been performed at Washington State University to determine basic dynamic properties. Ten diaphragms, including walls, floors, and...

The Atlantic Palace: Part I Structural System Selection Based on Wind Tunnel Testing
The location of the structure in a coastal area susceptible to high winds, the irregular shape and height of the building and the desire for more accurate wind loading and acceleration...

Performance of an Earthquake Excited Roof Diaphragm
The objective of this paper is to study the earthquake performance of the roof diaphragm of the West Valley College gymnasium in Saratoga, California through a complete set of acceleration...

Notes on Geotechnical Input to the Design of Graving Drydocks
These notes discuss geotechnical considerations in the design of graving drydocks, in particular the floors and walls of the structure. The effect of ground-water conditions in the design,...

Rehabilitation of Gravity Wharf by Underpinning
The Municipal Wharf at the Port of Providence, Rhode Island, is currently under rehabilitation to accommodate modern trends in marine cargo handling and shipping. The three-phased project...
