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...

September Eleventh, The Days After, The Days Ahead
Civil engineers assumed prominent roles in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and are leading the efforts to evaluate not only the performance...

Leader and Team Member Roles
Groups may consist of people who have similar or very different roles or tasks. A group may not be required to work as a coordinated or integrated unit, such as a group of dentists, attorneys,...

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...
