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...

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...

Safety Assessment of a Chemical Reactor Vessel
The potential explosion loadings on a chemical reactor vessel is described in this paper. The potential loads presented provide a basis for designing spherical storage vessels which will...

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...

The Daytona Beach Large Wave Event of 3 July 1992
The fundamental mechanisms behind the anomalous large wave which struck Daytona Beach on 3 July 1992 are addressed. Although the wave was originally believed to have resulted from a submarine...

Measurement and Analysis of Wave Data in Los Angeles—Long Beach Harbors

The Significance of Hydrodynamic Forces in Coastal Embankment Design
The dynamic forces of sea water and backfill soil acting on coastal embankment are analyzed by using a new finite-difference method. The Euler's equation and continuity equation are used...
