Methods to Mitigate Thermally Induced Distortion
The purpose of this paper is to show the magnitude of bending on the Space Station Freedom Navigation Base as induced by thermal expansion and contraction over the operating range -45...

Instrumentation and Testing of a Three Hinge Arch for Service Loads Increase
A three hinge arch railroad bridge was instrumented and tested to evaluate its condition and the required modification for increasing the service loads. Initially the structure was designed...

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...

How to Optimize Frames Using Plastic Design Concept
An optimal design procedure using plastic design concept was presented. For low-rise building frames, optimal plastic designs can be made using the plastic limit load as a basis of design....

Dynamic Inelastic Analysis of Tall Buildings
Members with undesirably early formed plastic hinges as well as excessive conservatism introduced in the preliminary design of tall buildings can be identified by the behavior state study...

Finite Element Analysis of a Highway Bridge Hinge
A highway bridge hinge is a very important element in bridge design. It releases thermal stresses that may be developed in the superstructure or the substructure of a bridge. A common...

Design of Monosymmetric Sections in Flexure
Monosymmetric members are generally I-shaped, symmetrical about the plane of the web, and characteristically have a larger compression flange than tension flange. Examples are crane girders...

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...

Locally Buckled Plastic Hinge Behavior Under Monotonic and Cyclic Loading Condition
In order to clarify the influences of local buckling under monotonic and cyclic loading conditions, experimental studies were carried out on W8x10 A-36 structural steel members subjected...

Stochastic Dynamics of Hysteretic Systems
A frequency domain method is discussed in order to evaluate the second order statistical response of nonlinear hysteretic structures. Both shear type systems and lumped mass frames involving...

Wang's Equation for Ice Forces From a Pressure Ridge
Yung-shih (Tony) Wang has presented an equation for the breaking loads from a multiyear pressure ridge on a conical structure. The three distances that define the position of the plastic...

Simplified Second-Order Inelastic Analysis for Steel Frame Design
Several current approaches are outlined that account for the spreading of plasticity in a second-order inelastic analysis of frames. The approaches are based on modifications to the simple...
