Representation of Vertical Constraints Knowledge for Scheduling Multi-Story Projects
Multi-story projects are characterized by many repetitive units or typical floors that involve identical activities repeated consecutively from one floor to the next. Horizontal logic...

Metal Truss Plates: Less than Full-Depth Penetration and Shear Buckling
This paper presents the results of two experimental studies on metal truss plates which are used to join members of wood trusses. The first study investigated the effect that less than...

Wheel Space Station for 2025
The advantages and disadvantages of three basic space station designs are discussed. These designs are a zero-gravity can like Skylab, a tethered system, and the wheel. A design of a wheel...

Floor Response Spectra Analysis Including Correlations of Multiple Support Motions
This paper deals with the response spectrum analysis method of the secondary structures including the correlation effects between nonuniform support excitations. Based on the random vibration...

A Shear Transfer Model for Floor-To-Wall Connections in Concrete Masonry Structures
Based upon experiments conducted at the Univ of California, San Diego (UCSD) on floor-to-wall connections in concrete masonry structures, a constitutive model was developed for the overall...

Performance and Serviceability of Composite Floors
Concrete slabs on steel deck are the most common type of floor system in use today. This system of construction is particularly advantageous when ultimate strength design (LRFD) is used....

Vibration of Composite Floors
An AISC/CISC guideline on floor vibration is being prepared to help practitioners design to avoid floor vibration problems and to remedy problems that occur in practice. This paper provides...

Achieving Level Composite Steel Floors
Constructing deflected composite steel floors that are level is a complex operation, and one which requires cooperation and an exchange of information between the structural engineer and...

Site Load Testing of Full Scale Composite Concrete Floors
The paper presents the results of a load test carried out in 1982 on a continuous reinforced concrete slab with a permanent shuttering consisting of compressed straw (Stramit) or cement...

Loma Prieta Response of an Eccentrically Braced Tall Building
Acceleration response records obtained during the October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake [Ms = 7.1] from the 47-story, eccentrically braced Embarcadero...

Mechanical Design of the Storage Tubes in the HWVP Canister Storage Building
Canisters of high-level waste from the Hanford Waste Vitrification Plant (HWVP) will be stored in an adjacent facility, the Canister Storage Building (CSB). The canisters are stored vertically...

The Cape Mendocino Earthquake: A Local Tsunami Wakeup Call?
Sudden displacement of the seafloor due to fault offset or submarine slumping can generate tsunami waves that can travel vast distances across open ocean and damage coastal communities....

Sedimentational Aspects of Erdemir Port (Eregli, Turkey)
This paper reviews available information on environmental conditions, historical data on sea bed topography and dredged volumes for understanding sedimentational processes at or near the...

New Austrian Dam Side-Channel Spillway
The Loma Prieta earthquake of 17 October 1989 damaged the chute spillway at the Austrian Dam near San Jose, California. The replacement spillway, with a higher design discharge of 11,500...

Highlights of the New ASCE Standards on Composite Deck Floor Slabs
This paper presents highlights of the newly approved and printed ASCE Standard on the design and construction of composite floor deck slabs utilizing cold-formed steel. In 1992 four documents...

European Good Practice in Composite Floor Construction
Previous European experience, research and design for composite slabs with profiled steel decking are discussed. Present efforts to harmonize composite slab design and good construction...

Slim-Floor Beams: Design Criteria and Structural Behaviour
Partially concrete-encased steel beams are mostly employed due to their natural resistance to fire, but there may also be other reasons, e.g. to obtain smaller depths of construction....

The New U.S. Senate Subway System
It was recognized in 1909, when the first Senate Subway System was installed, that a rapid means of securely transporting Senators from their remote offices to the Capitol Building was...
