State of the Art
The structural engineering of San Francisco's new Museum of Modern Art offered many challenges to the engineer. The complexity of the building is both visually exciting and...

Analysis of Inflating Habitable Space Structures with neomass (near-Earth-object mass)
The discovery of near Earth objects (NEOs), during August 1992, and that one of them is a dormant comet, dramatically changed the potential availability of near-Earth resources. NEOs provide...

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...

FRP Box-Beams Under Long-Time Static and Fatigue Loading
This paper discusses experimental and analytical aspects of the long-time behavior of filament wound E-glass fiber reinforced epoxy-box-beams. Theoretical and experimental data are compared...

Local Buckling of Pultruded FRP Beams: Theory and Experiment
A continuing experimental and theoretical investigation of the local compression flange buckling of commercially produced pultruded fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) beams is briefly described...

Evaluation of Wood Floor Vibration Design Criteria
In the United States, floors in wood buildings are designed according to strength and deflection criteria under static uniform loads. With the introduction of engineered joist products...

Shear Design Guidelines for Polyester Concrete Using Recycled Plastic
Previous research on the shear behavior of steel-reinforced polymer concrete (PC) beams has been very limited and no efficient design procedures have been proposed. In all the previous...

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...

Innovations in Glulam Timber Bridge Design

Tests on Deep I-Shape Pultruded Beams

Elasto - Plastic Analysis of Cable Net Structures
This paper presents a Newton-Raphson interaction technique which takes account of plastic cable strains while iterating on the nodal equilibrium equations of cable net structures. The...

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....

Distributed Flexibility Models for Nonlinear Analysis of RC Structures
The application of distributed flexibility member models in inelastic analysis of reinforced concrete (RC) structural systems is examined. While the utilization of flexibility-based formulations...

Implementation of Elastic Layered Theory for Design of Unbonded Overlays
The U.S. Army and Air Force have implemented the elastic layered theory for design of unbonded overlays for rigid airfield pavements. The procedure allows for design of unbonded overlays...
