Design of Shotcrete Support from the Rock Mechanical Viewpoint
When designing tunnel support the key question is to determine the loading conditions resulting from the deformation of the rock mass during and after excavation. Principle views are given...

New Advances in Shotcrete Additives: The DELVO System
The DELVO system is a two component, nonchloride chemical system developed to control the dynamics of cement hydration. Concrete, treated with the DELVO system, can be kept in a plastic...

Advances in Shotcrete Technology for Support of Underground Openings in Canada
This paper presents a broad overview of the state-of-the-art of shotcrete technology for support of underground openings in Canada. Advances in shotcrete technology such as the introduction...

A CADD Program for Simulating Turning Vehicles
The turning capability of one or more 'design' vehicles and their swept paths has a significant influence on the layout of transportation facilities such as roadway intersections, parking...

Displacement Amplification Factor for Seismic Design Provisions
To estimate the maximum roof and story drifts occurring during severe earthquakes, the UBC and NEHRP use 3Rw/8 and Cd...

Link Length Design and EBF Seismic Performance
Twenty eccentrically braced frames (EBFs) are designed using the current seismic design code and newly developed step-by-step design procedure. The EBFs have a variety of link lengths...

Passive Energy Dissipation Systems for Earthquake-Resistant Design
Passive energy dissipation devices, also known as supplemental damping devices, have been proposed as a means by which the earthquake resistance of a building can be substantially enhanced,...

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...

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...

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...

Design Optimization of an All-FRP Short-Span Bridge
The objectives of this study are: a) to determine the feasibility of designing an all-FRP bridge, and b) to demonstrate the usefulness of optimization techniques in the design of FRP superstructures....

Plastic Piling
Composite plastic and steel piles are gaining acceptance throughout the United States. The evolving technology has produced a unique product which solves several problems related to use...
