Beautiful Bridges and Highways in the West
This paper recounts 75 years of progress in the design of aesthetic bridges and highways in the west. Not a new idea, there are numerous existing examples showing that the goal of good...

Fiberglas Reinforced Plastic Rebars in Lieu of Steel Rebars
Fiberglass reinforced plastics have recently been introduced in the market in the form of rebars for concrete reinforcement. The light weight, corrosion resistance and non-magnetic properties...

Flexural and Shear Moduli of FRP Beams
The analysis and design of structures of pultruded fiber reinforced plastic (FRP), constant cross-section, commercially produced, beams is discussed in the context of a shear deformation...

Effect of Temperature on the Load-Carrying Capacity of Fiber Glass Reinforced Plastic Beams
This paper describes an experimental investigation into the behavior of two T shaped beams made of fiber glass reinforcement and polyester or vinylester binders. Tests were performed at...

Application of Fiber-Composites in Civil Engineering
Two potential applications of Glass-Fiber-Reinforced-Plastics (GFRP) in civil engineering type structures are investigated: (1) GFRP rebars in concrete beams; (2) strengthening of concrete...

Earthquake Resistant Design Using Friction Pendulum Connections
The Friction Pendulum System (FPS) offers a simple approach for increasing a structure's earthquake resistance. The approach uses steel connections which absorb earthquake...

Development of Inelastic Reduction Factors to Provide an Elastic Design Procedure
R factor values can only be rationally selected when they are based on in part nonlinear inelastic dynamic analyses of building system types. However, it is informative to discuss the...

Cold/Warm Water Zone Supply—An Edmonton Experience

Ultimate Capacity of Deep Foundation by a Rigid-Plastic Analysis
This paper is concerned with the determination of the axial ultimate capacity of a rigid pier on the basis of the theory of perfect plasticity. As an application of the upper bound theorem...

Performance of a Large Ribbed Mat on Cohesive Soil
The performance of a 678-ft by 304-ft (207-m by 93-m) ribbed concrete mat was studied to provide improved soil input parameters for design. The mat was constructed on a low plasticity...

Design of Plastic Piece Parts
This paper describes a computer assisted design process originally developed at the University of Wyoming and now implemented in commercial software. In order to address the need for broadly...

Stereolithography
Stereolithography is a three-dimensional printing process which produces accurate copies of CAD solid or surface models directly from CAD data. The process uses a moving laser beam, directed...

Design of Steel Tunnel Liners
The paper presents a detailed development of the fundamental equations for internal pressure design, considering an elastic interaction between the steel liner and the surrounding rock...
