Nonlinear Collapse of Offshore Jacket Structures
The Joint Industry Tubular Frames Project was established with ten oil industry sponsors to investigate the reserve and residual strength of frames typical of offshore structures. To date...

Dynamic Loading of a Rigid Frame Bridge
The objective of this paper is to investigate the dynamic response of a rigid frame bridge to two trucks (side by side) passing over the rough bridge deck. The rigid frame bridge is designed...

Application of Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Columns in Tall Buildings in Earthquake Area
In this paper an outline is given of the background, the design concept, structural features, construction and economy of the concrete-filled steel tubular coumns of tall buildings in...

Innovative Design of Steel Gable Frames
Common wisdom holds that conventionally designed gable frames fabricated from rolled sections cannot compete with metal building system frames fabricated from plate and bar stock, from...

Progress in Reinforced Concrete Column Design
This paper reviews some of the design procedures used for both braced and unbraced frames constructed in reinforced concrete. The discussion refers to the problems of material and geometric...

Seismic Behavior of Type PR Steel Frames
Type PR(partially restrained 'simple framing') is one of the methods of design specified in the AISC LRFD(1986) Design code for the design of unbraced steel building frames. In this method...

Uniform Lateral Load Capacity of Infilled Frames
Three tests were conducted on 2.4 meter by 2.4 meter steel frames infilled with structural clay tile to determine the behavior and capacity when subjected to uniform lateral loads. An...

Dynamic Testing of Unreinforced Brick Masonry Infills
A significant seismic hazard may exist when unreinforced masonry infill panels fall out of their surrounding frames as a result of excessive accelerations applied normal to their plane....

A Peice-wise Linear Evaluation of Masonry Infills Subjected to Out-of-plane Seiesmic Drift
This paper summarizes the out-of-plane testing and analytical modeling of a full-scale unreinforced masonry (URM) infilled frame and a bare frame without infilling. The testing was part...

Wind Deflection Probability Analysis
A statistical analysis is performed which analyses the probability of various magnitudes of deflections of a cable-stayed roof occurring due to wind uplift. Extensive wind analyses were...

Earthquake Barrier Technology: Sliding-Friction Energy Dissipation
The first project in America to use friction damping was approved by the City of Los Angeles for the retrofit of a 10-story concrete frame building, designed to resist a Maximum Credible...

Cyclical Behavior of Welded Steel Shear Studs
Four specimens of composite steel and concrete beams were experimentally tested to obtain the cyclical behavior of the welded steel shear stud. This information may be used for the analysis...

Wind Forces on Industrial Facilities

Recent Studies of the Behaviour of Semi-Rigid Composite Connections
Following renewed interest in the semi-rigid properties of joints in steel frame structures, a more recently identified area of research has been the study of composite connections. The...

Design Implications of Advanced Analysis in LRFD
This paper discusses two advanced analysis methods, and their use in LRFD format. The first approach is called the notional load plastic hinge method and the second is called the second-order...

Towards Robust, Effective and Efficient Second Order Analysis of Practical Steel Frames
The performance of the widely used finite element and the stability function methods and the recently developed pointwise equilibrating element in second order nonlinear analysis of framed...

A Nonlinear-Analysis-Based Procedure for Evaluating Load-Carrying Capacity of In-Plane Steel Frames
A simple method based on geometrically nonlinear analysis is proposed to evaluate the load-carrying capacity of a steel structure. The effects of material nonlinearity and residual stress...

Behavior of Tall Frame Combining Rigid and Semi-Rigid Connections
In this paper, the applicability of the mixed use of rigid and semi-rigid connections in the tall frame is discussed. It is tried. for 4-bay 8-storey frame to be numerically analyzed for...

Classification of Semi-Rigid Connections Based on the Elastic-Plastic Mechanical Behavior of Frames

Seismic Upgrades Using Energy Dissipation Devices
