Dynamics of Laminated Plates with Layer Waviness
Composite structures usually exhibit a high strength-to-weight ratio as compared to traditional structural materials. This makes them attractive solutions in many aerospace applications....

Mechanics of Curved Fiber Bundles in Composites
Fiber undulations are inherent to manufacturing processes like braiding and filament-winding, and sometimes occur as defects in other composite structures. This paper summarizes the status...

Behavior of Bolted Joints in 3-D Braided Composites
As composites are used more as replacements for metals in space structures, the question arises as to the most efficient way to join the components. Mechanical fasteners are a common joining...

Seismic Design of RC Structural Walls with Unsymmetrical Cross-Sections
An overview of seismic design issues and current experimental research for walls with unsymmetrical cross-sections is presented. The experimental studies include approximately 1/4 and...

Behavior of RC Beams under Sustained Load
Experimental results of eight reinforced concrete beams under 3-month's sustained load, with the ratio of shear span to depth equal to 2.5, are reported. It is shown by tests that the...

Monitoring Stay Cable Forces During Construction of the Natchez Trace Parkway Arch Bridge
This paper describes how cable-stay forces were indirectly quantified through the use of simple field measurements. A system was developed and delivered to the contractor and used to make...

Seismic Evaluation of the Tied-arch Bridge Across the Mississippi River on I-40
The bridge reported in this paper is a two-span steel tied-arch bridge supported on massive caisson foundations. Site specific seismic studies were carried out to establish the ground...

Moment-Rotation Behavior of Pultruded Beam-to-Column Connections
Presented are experimental details and results of five tests carried out to study the moment-rotation behavior of flange cleated connections for frames of pultruded members. The full-sized...

Progress in Reinforced Concrete Column Design: An Introduction
The Joint ASCE-ACI Committee 441 on Reinforced Concrete Columns is investigating a number of problems related to structural behavior and design of reinforced concrete columns. This paper...

A Study of Jointless Bridge Behavior
The pressing need for maintenance free and low construction cost bridges, has increased the interest and activity in building integral or jointless bridges. The investigation of the behavior...

Mechanical Behavior of Dowels Embedded in Concrete
In this paper an experimental investigation on the behavior of dowels embedded in concrete is described. The dowel strength under monotonic forces with two different boundary conditions...

Lateral Load Resisting Systems for Circular Buildings
The design of structural systems to economically limit inter-story drift and building acceleration for circular high rise buildings is presented within the framework of two recently constructed...

Investigating the Behavior of a Lattice Structural Section
Tests were conducted on a fully instrumented lattice section assembled using various connection types (bolted or welded). The results of this study show that bolt slippage can have a major...

Uniform Lateral Load Capacity of Infilled Frames
Three tests were conducted on 2.4 meter by 2.4 meter steel frames infilled with structural clay tile to determine the behavior and capacity when subjected to uniform lateral loads. An...
