Overview of Structural Behavior of Members Subjected to Torsion
The torsion strength of concrete beams depends on many factors, such as the amount of reinforcement, the volumetric ratios of longitudinal and transverse steel bars, the concrete strength,...

Structural Expression in Wind Sensitive Structures
Architectural details can impact both the local cladding pressures on a structure as well as the overall structural response. Figure 1 shows a pair of roof corner vortices on the upper...

Breakwaters '99
First International Symposium on Monitoring of Breakwaters
The papers present state-of-art methods and technologies that are used in the structural and environmental monitoring of rubble mound breakwaters. Structural monitoring concerns the structural...

Changing Lanes
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) plans to relocate Interstate 195 in downtown Providence began as a safety improvement project but has since grown into an ambitious...

In Situ Behavior of Breakwaters in Constantza Port—Romania
In order to build breakwaters, especially in the areas with heavy storms, a special analysis on the several factors is necessary. In addition, surveillance of time behavior of breakwaters...
