Progressive Collapse
This chapter examines progressive collapse. Topics include current practice and integrity steel for loss of support of a lifting collar....

Up into the Sky
What is the future of the skyscraper? The events of September 11 have sparked numerous questions regarding the history and future of tall buildings in America, and before the World Trade...

Collapsible Soils Engineering

Engineering Experience With In-Situ Modification of Collapsible and Expansive Soils

A Layer-Wise Formulation for Progressive Failure Analysis of Laminated Composite Beams

Conservation Properties of the Mild Slope and Boussinesq Equations
Common water wave evolution equations, such as the mild slope equation, parabolic approximations and Boussinesq equations, are approximate statements of conservation laws. A feasible measure...

Second Order Irregular–Wave Generation in Flumes - Computation of Transfer Functions by an Asymptotic Summation Method
Recently the theory for second order irregular-wave generation (including superharmonics as well as subharmonics) has been rederived for a variety of different types of wave board motion....

Collapse Mechanism of Compacted Clayey and Silty Sands
The mechanism of wetting-induced collapse (hydrocompression) and the influence of fines ratios on compacted sandy soils are investigated. Various ratios of clay and silt are mixed with...

Case History of a Collapsible Soil Fill
Collapse settlement of a deep compacted fill led to damage of a group of condominium units. The fill consisted of a highly heterogeneous mixture of coarse- to fine-grained soil containing...

Cyclic Behavior of Partially Saturated Collapsible Soils Subjected to Water Permeation

U.S. Experience with Dynamic Compaction of Collapsible Soils

Progressive Failure of an Overtopped Embankment
The failure of an overtopped embankment is a problem of a very complicated nature. Concerned organizations are interested in information that can be used in future planning and development...

A Laboratory Procedure for Partial-Wetting Collapse Determination
Partial wetting results in partial collapse, which is linked to the reduction in soil suction caused by wetting. The laboratory procedure presented in this paper represents a modification...

Response of Space Trusses During Progressive Failure

The Effect of Member Snap on Progressive Collapse of Space Structures

Dynamic Effects of Progressive Member Failure on the Response of Truss Structures

Dynamic Response and Progressive Failure of Special Structures
This proceedings, Dynamic Response and Progressive Failure of Special Structures, consists of papers presented in the two sessions of the First...

Discontinuous Deformation Slope Stability Analyses

Soil Strengths from Back Analysis of Slope Failures

The Influence of the Viscosity on the Progressive Waves
In a stationary atmosphere, the free-surface progressive wave motion in a real fluid of uniform depth is analysed by using Navier-Stokes equation, and its mechanism is described in first-order...
