San Simeon Earthquake of December 22, 2003 and Denali, Alaska, Earthquake of November 3, 2002
Prepared by the Earthquake Investigations Committee of the Technical Council of Lifeline Earthquake Engineering of ASCE. This TCLEE Monograph provides...

Toronto Takes Off
Travelers using Toronto's Pearson International Airport will soon be passing through a new, state-of-the-art terminal, the centerpiece of a 10-year airport redevelopment project....

Reaching for the Sky
Tapei 101—soon to open its doors as the world's tallest building—will resist devastating typhoons, earthquakes, and sway with an ingenious system of outrigger trusses, supercolumns,...

Making the Grade
Adding two lanes to a stretch of highway in western Colorado required excavation on slopes and involved micropiles, mechanically stabilized earth walls, ground anchors, and soil nails....

The Road from Kabul to Kandahār
To have any hope of successfully rebuilding its ware-ravaged economy, Afghanistan will need a reliable transportation infrastructure. Reconstruction this heavily mined highway under a...

A More Perfect Union
Established to promote greater public understanding of the United States Constitution, the National Constitution Center facility in Philadelphia is a structure of complex geometries articulated...

The Integrated Asset Management Paradigm for Highway Transportation Infrastructure
During the past few decades, the legislature, federal transportation officials, the transportation engineering community and the public in general became aware of the necessity to leverage...

Life-Cycle Environmental Accounting and Decision-Making for Bridge Structures
This presentation focuses on life-cycle environmental accounting and decision-making for bridge structures using the example of steel and steel-reinforced concrete....

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,...

Advances in Analytical Modeling of Torsional Members
The basic formula for calculating the torsional strength of reinforced concrete members was developed by Rausch (1929) using the space truss concept. Unfortunately, Rausch's equation may...

Members Subjected to Torsion Combined with Other Actions
The combination of torsion with bending and shear (T-M-V) in members with both transverse and longitudinal reinforcement is the most commonly encountered combination in practical cases....

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...

A Tale of Two Towers: The Foundations
In preparing two lots in New York City's Times Square as sites for modern skyscrapers, engineers devised foundations and structural systems that would allow for subway lines,...
