Study of Interaction Between Pneumatic Spherical and Cylindrical Form Shells Subjected to Wind Pressure
In the design of pneumatic membrane structures, analysis of stress and deformations of structures subjected to wind is among the most important requirements. For the purpose of studying...

Inelastic Response of Metal Matrix Composite Tubes
An analytical method which exactly satisfies the equations of the boundary value problem for the inelastic response of laminated metal matrix composite tubes on a point-wise basis is presented....

A Generic Inflatable Structure for a Lunar/Martian Base
The first steps in the human expansion into space, which inevitably will occur during the next century, consist of the establishment of a human-tended base on the Moon followed by human...

Spacecab: A Concept for Commercial Human Spaceflight
This paper will describe the Spacecab conceptual design and operational scenario. Spacecab is not necessarily a unique design solution but it does illustrate a design philosophy that differs...

Dynamic Testing of Unreinforced Brick Masonry Infills
A significant seismic hazard may exist when unreinforced masonry infill panels fall out of their surrounding frames as a result of excessive accelerations applied normal to their plane....

Wind Loads on Low Rise Structures: A Survey
Because of the large investment, high rise buildings are usually tested in a wind tunnel to provide the best wind loading information possible. Since low rise structures each represent...

Uplift Resistance of Plywood and OSB Roof Sheathing
A test program to determine the resistance of plywood and OSB roof sheathing to uplift pressures created by wind flowing over a residential roof structure will provide valuable data to...

Prestressed Concrete Failures Due to Uplift
The paper presents some examples of prestressed concrete DOUBLE-TEE (DT) failures caused by hurricane Andrew. The DT's failures was mainly due to the negative moment created by uplift....

A Probabilistic Approach to the Response of Tall Buildings to Wind Loadings
Tall buildings constructed in recent years are light in weight, flexible and low in damping. This is the consequence of using lighter material with higher strength, and fewer interior...

Gust Speeds in Hurricanes
Based on strip-chart records of wind speeds representing 11 recording stations and four hurricanes, it is concluded that gust factors for hurricanes generally exceed the gust factors proposed...

Analysis of Unstiffened and Stiffened Tubular Members Under External Pressure and Structural Loads
This paper summarizes some important results concerning the ultimate capacity of stiffened and unstiffened tubes under combined loading. Such tubes are candidates for use in offshore structures...

Elasto-Plastic Buckling Design for Shallow Cylindrical Shells under External Pressure
Pressures providing elastic-plastic buckling conditions for thin shallow cylindrical shell panels are presented. Classical simple support boundary conditions have been adopted for the...
