Large Deformation Analysis of Lattice Truss Structures Including Hysteretic Material Behavior
A methodology is presented to analyze lattice truss structures including both material and geometric nonlinearities. Modeled member material behavior modes include: buckling, yielding,...

Buckling of Single Layer Latticed Dome under Uniform Gravity Load
This paper reports on experiment and numerical analysis relating the buckling of a single layer latticed dome under uniformly distributed nodal gravity load at the dome central portion....

Collapse Behavior of Double-Layer Space Truss Grids with Member Buckling
The results of collapse tests of over twenty space truss grids with elastic buckling of members are reviewed. The space truss grids include three types, that is, square-on-square, square-on-diagonal...

Effects of Spatial Triangulation on the Behavior of Tensegrity Domes
A number of long span 'tensegrity' dome type structures have recently been realized pursuant to the inventions of R. Buckminster Fuller and David H. Geiger. These structures have demonstrated...

Study on Structural Characteristics of Air-Inflated Beam Structures
The purpose of this paper is to clarify the structural characteristics of nonlinear load-carrying behaviors of air-inflated beam structures in their finite deflection range and after wrinkles...

The Nature of Structural Morphology and Some Interdisciplinary Examples
Among members of IASS, the most common definition of Structural Morphology is the study of interaction between geometrical form and structural behavior. The most significant structural...

Behaviour of Concrete Masonry Infill - Steel Frame Structures
Twenty-eight masonry shear panels infilled in steel frames were tested to ultimate strength under in-plane, horizontal loading applied at roof level. The parameters investigated in this...

Flange Local Buckling and Behavior of I-Sections
A simple kinematic model is proposed to determine the locally buckled shape of the compressive flange plate of I-sections subjected to pure bending or bending combined with axial thrust....

Finite Element Analysis of Shear in RC Girders
Two complementary approaches are presented to model the shear behaviour of reinforced concrete structures. A local one, based on a probabilistic modelling of cracking, accounts for local...

Computing in Analysis and Design in Structural Engineering - An Educator's Point of View
The use of the computer in structural engineering education is discussed. It is emphasized that the students must have an understanding of both the analysis process and the behavior of...

Human Factors Engineering Applications in the Testing of the Legal Weight Truck Cask Transportation System

Studying Route Choice Behavior Using Computer-Aided Telephone Interviews and GIS
In this paper two innovative techniques in developing route choice surveys are introduced. The first is using computer-aided telephone interviews (CATI), and the second utilizes geographic...
