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...

Composite Materials for Structures on Planetary Surfaces
Development of structures for planetary surface environments depends upon the use of the most appropriate materials. Advanced composite materials are apparently the best candidates for...

Comparison of Micromechanical Models for Elastic Properties
The effective elastic properties for unidirectional composites, as predicted by several analytical micromechanical models are compared for glass/epoxy and graphite/epoxy. A brief review...

Metallized Microballoon EMI Shielding Materials
The number of applications requiring shielding against electro-magnetic interference (EMI) is growing. Materials that are lightweight, and formable need to be developed for shielding against...

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...

Reliability Analysis of Degrading Elasto-Plastic Oscillators
A method is developed for calculating the probability (reliability) that the total plastic displacement of an elasto-plastic oscillator does not exceed a critical level during a reference...

Properties of Composites Using Recycled Plastics
Recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate), PET, mainly recovered from used plastic beverage bottles, can be used to produce unsaturated polyester resins. Polymer concrete (PC) and polymer...

Adhesives and Structural Plastics
An overview of some primary considerations for the use of adhesives and their advantages in connection of structural plastics is presented. Effective joint geometries, surface preparations,...

Polyolefin Plastic Water Service Line Performance
Polyolefin (PO) plastic piping made from polyethylene (PE) and polybutylene (PB) materials have been used in diameters of about 1 in. for water service lines for buildings. Both PE and...

Bond Strength of Straight GFRP Rebars
An overview of a study on bond of straight Glass-fiber-reinforced-plastic (GFRP) rebars to concrete is presented. The 54 specimens to be tested include several variables, such as the mode...

Investigation of the Behavior of Reinforced Plastic Columns with Concrete Core
This paper describes an experimental investigation into the behavior of reinforced plastic columns with tubular (hollow) sections. The columns were pultruded and had a cross-section which...
