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...

Characterization of an ER Active Member
In the presence of strong electric fields (kV/mm), electrorheological (ER) materials change form viscous fluids to yielding materials. The class of ER materials used in this study have...

Advances in the Modelling of Long Span Bridges for Wind Effects
The continued development of longer span suspension and cable-stayed bridges has placed increased demand on both the designers and constructors of these structures for a better understanding...

Reliability of Light-Gage Metal Joist Hangers
Limit state design equations are formulated to assess the reliability of light-gage metal joist hangers using the results of experimental studies. The design equations are calibrated against...

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...

Time-Dependent Load-Distribution Behavior of Parallel-Member Wood Systems
The effect of differential member creep on the load-distribution behavior of parallel-member wood systems is examined. Variability in the creep response of the individual component members...

Cyclic Behavior of Joints Between Steel Beams and Reinforced Concrete Columns
The design and behavior of composite beam-column joints for seismic design are reviewed based on the results of tests. Issues addressed include the strength, deformation, and toughness...

Recent Studies of the Behaviour of Semi-Rigid Composite Connections
Following renewed interest in the semi-rigid properties of joints in steel frame structures, a more recently identified area of research has been the study of composite connections. The...

Behavior of Tall Frame Combining Rigid and Semi-Rigid Connections
In this paper, the applicability of the mixed use of rigid and semi-rigid connections in the tall frame is discussed. It is tried. for 4-bay 8-storey frame to be numerically analyzed for...

Classification of Semi-Rigid Connections Based on the Elastic-Plastic Mechanical Behavior of Frames

Seismic Study of a Cable-Stayed Bridge
The focus of this paper is to investigate the non-linear and linear behavior of a cable-stayed bridge in a seismic environment. Three design features of a cable-stayed bridge are studied:...

Experiences with an Undergraduate Structural Engineering Laboratory
An Undergraduate Structural Engineering Laboratory was recently implemented at Lehigh University with funds obtained from the National Science Foundation through its instrumentation and...

Tests of Full-Size Pretensioned AASHTO Beams with Debonded Strands
A summary of an experimental investigation dealing with the effects of strand debonding on the flexure and shear behavior of simply supported pretensioned AASHTO beams with a cast-in-place...

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....

Seismic Behavior of Non-Ductile Concrete Frame Structures
Non-ductile reinforced concrete (RC) frame structures designed and constructed during the 1950's through 1970's exist in many regions of the United States. The frames of these structures...

Compressive Strength of Large Scale HSLA-80 Steel Cellular Sections of a Double Hull Ship Structure
An analytical and experimental large scale test program was conducted to investigate the instability failure modes of cellular double hull box sections. The main emphasis of the study...

A New Way of Teaching Structural Engineering With the `AN/EX' Mini-Laboratory
Students in the AN/EX lab first use a custom-written preprocessor to generate a proper input file to run the professional-level M-STRUDL structural analysis program to predict the load...

Experimental Study on a Buckling Behavior of a Wooden Single-Layer Space Frame of Reticular Shell on a Hexagonal Plan: Influence due to the Bolted Joint Looseness with Axial and Bending Resistance
The authors have investigated about the structural behavior of a wooden single-layer space frame structure with the bolted joints. We have carried out a buckling tests of a wooden single-layer...

Spherical Domes Subjected to Horizontal Earthquakes
