Out-of-plane and In-plane Testing of URM Infills
This paper summarizes the out-of-plane followed by in-plane quasi-static testing of two, full-scale Unreinforced Masonry (URM) Hollow Clay Tile (HCT) infills. The testing is part of a...

Built-Up Compression Members for Noval Structural Systems
This paper discusses built-up compression members used in novel structural systems for two high-rise buildings: InterFirst Plaza at Dallas Main Center and Columbus Center in New York....

How to Optimize Steel Frameworks
This paper presents the details of a design synthesis strategy to conduct computer-automated design of least-weight structural steel frameworks, where members are automatically sized using...

The Pursuit of International Science Literacy Through Energy Education: An Interdisciplinary Model for Curriculum Development
Over the past two decades science educators have employed the science, technology, and society (STS) framework for framing curriculum and for prescribing instruction. Ongoing world wide...

Properties in Sensitivity Coefficients of Framed Structures
This paper presents a special relationship among sensitivity coefficients of static response, natural frequency and mode. The relationship is that the sum of sensitivity coefficients in...

A Simulation of the Quake-response on the Frame with Large Basement-box under the Earthquake from Deep Soil Layer
This paper treats a study of computing vibratory analysis and its comparison with measurements for the earthquake-responses on an actual 19 storied pure frame-structure with its height...

User Identified Short-Term and Long-Term Needs for Pavement Management Innovation
A survey involving 300 practicing engineer's from all over the United States and representing 20 other countries was conducted, concerning ideas and opinions of the priority research needed...

Minimum Streamflow Assessment in Italian Scenarios
Overall water availability and acceptable carrying capacity seem to be at their limits today in Italy. A specific procedure aiming at minimum streamflows analysis and evaluation has been...

Composite Beams: Redistribution, Reliability, and Lateral Buckling
Research relevant to three aspects of the design of composite beams for ultimate limit states is summarized. These are: the redistribution in continuous beams and in framed structures...

Composite Space Frame‚ÄĒExperimental/Analytical Study
This paper describes work carried out on a composite space frame system. The system, previously developed for roof construction, comprised a pyramidal arrangement of steel angles and circular...

Summary Report Case Histories Session: Design of a 71 Story Composite Building in Dallas by Richard Henige, LaMessurier Consultants

Steel Panel Encased R.C. Composite Shear Walls
In order to make clear the fundamental resisting mechanisms of composite shear walls, tests are carried out on the composite unit rigid frames with various infilled shear walls. Composite...

Removal, Replacement and Rehabilitation of Concrete Slabs
The project involved existing one-way slabs experiencing severe corrosion damage. The slabs were removed and replaced while salvaging the concrete beams and frame components. Significant...

Seismic Design of Multi-Story, Wood-Framed Buildings
The seismic design and analysis of wood-framed structures is relatively simple; however, the challenges that present themselves within this design medium are shear and overturning force...

Use of Eccentric Steel Bracing for Strengthening of R/C Frames
This paper presents preliminary results of ongoing research investigating the feasibility of steel eccentrically braced frames (EBFs) for seismic retrofit of reinforced concrete frames....

Vitalization Policy of Local Region by Port Space Utilization
