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 Consideration in Shakedown Analysis
Shakedown analysis for ductile rigid frames has shown that a structure can respond linearly at a higher elastic limit after it has experienced some plastic deformation. If the residual...

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...

Overlays on Deck
By the summer of 1993, a standard specification may be on the books for polymer concrete bridge-deck overlays—a high-tech rehab technique requiring a combination of plastic binder—such...

Materials
Performance and Prevention of Deficiencies and Failures
This proceedings, Materials: Performance and Prevention of Deficiencies and Failures, contains papers presented at the 1992 Materials Engineering...

Cyclic Behavior of a Deepwater Normally Consolidated Clay
A comprehensive advanced laboratory testing program was undertaken to study the cyclic behavior of clays under various combinations of one-way and two-way cyclic loading. This work was...
