Restrained Joint Systems

Structural Reliability Analysis of Masonry Shear Walls

Seismic Response and Retrofitting of Non-Ductile Reinforced Concrete Bridges
The Interstate I5/I605 Separator in Los Angeles County was severely damaged during the October, 1 1987 Whittier Narrows Earthquake. This damage included non-ductile shear failure in the...

Seismic Behavior of Non-Ductile Concrete Frame Structures
Non-ductile reinforced concrete (RC) frame structures designed and constructed during the 1950's through 1970's exist in many regions of the United States. The frames of these structures...

FRP Research for Highway Applications in Florida

Application of High-Performance Steel in New and Retrofit Structures

New Concept for Wrapping Columns with a High Strength Fiber/Epoxy System

Ductile Connections for Precast Concrete Frame Systems
This paper describes a research program to investigate the behavior of ductile connections between precast beam-column elements. The objectives of the program are to provide rational design...

Response of Knee-Brace-Frame Under Seismic Loading
Recently a new framing system called the Knee-Brace-Frame (KBF) has been proposed for seismic resisting structures to overcome the deficiencies of moment resisting frame and concentrically...

Welded Wire Confinement Grids
The invention of a new way to reinforce concrete using high strength welded wire grids, (WWG) increases its earthquake resistance by improved ductility and also opens the way for vast...

Earthquake Strengthening of a Twelve Story Non-Ductile Concrete Frame Building with Unreinforced Masonry Using Displacement Control Criterion
The structural concern with the Cooper Arms Apartment building when subjected to ground shaking was the in-plane and out-of-plane forces on the infill and consequences of the infill resisting...

Ductility Analysis for Seismic Retrofit of Multi-Column Bridge Structures, Santa Monica Viaduct
A new procedure is being developed for the ductility analysis of multi-column bridges. The formation of the plastic hinges in the structure (columns and/or superstructure) is followed...

Ductility Analysis of Overload and Settlement
The concept of sufficient ductility to avoid premature or brittle failures is gaining wide acceptance in structural engineering and is an important aspect in mitigating the consequences...

What Does Bring Ductility to Steel Fibre Reinforced Shotcrete?
It is generally accepted that ductility is the main characteristic of SFRS. Tests on scale 1/1 have been conducted to determine the influence of ductility on the bearing capacity and crack...

Modern Design Concept for Composite Slabs with Ductile Behaviour
Numerous tests with different types of composite slabs have been carried out in the laboratory for constructional engineering of the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany in order to determine...

Ductility Effects of End Details in Composite Beams
A limit states criterion is described for quantifying the rotation capacity of members in indeterminate structures as a means of classifying ductility of structures during plastic behaviour...

Aluminum Bronze - Method of Manufacture can Effect Performance

Durability and Ductility of Advanced Composites
In recent years, several fiber reinforced composites have been successfully used as prestressing materials for demonstration highway structures. Since these materials are relatively brittle...
