Cross-Frame and Diaphragm Behavior in Skewed Bridges
The author examines the existing specifications and guidance for bracing provisions by AASHTO, AISC, and TxDot, and the need for developing bracing requirements....

The Effect of the Slab on Beam-Column Joint Behavior
The three-dimensional effect of slab interaction on frame behavior has been observed in lateral load tests on beam-column-slab elements....

New Concepts in Structural Strength Assessment for Large Buildings in Fire
This paper presents theoretical descriptions of the key phenomena that govern the behaviour of composite framed structures in fire. These descriptions have been developed in parallel with...

Cyclic Behavior of Three-Dimensional Partially-Restrained Composite Connections
This paper describes the test of a full-scale, bi-directional, PR composite beam-to-column connection. The PR connection consisted of continuous reinforcement bars across the column and...

Conditional Priority at Controlled Intersections to Improve Public Transport Punctuality
The market share of public transport depends highly on the travel time ratio to private transport. The public transport travel time includes among other elements waiting times at stops...

Taking a New Approach (available in Structural Engineering Special Section only)
The first bridge rehabilitation project in Washington, DC to use the AASHTO Load and Resistant Factor Design (LRFD) specification reveals several lessons to be learned from using the newly...

Drivers of Behavior and Change
This chapter explores the sources of human behavior, particularly sources of reactions, feelings, thinking, and intention....
