Ultimate Bearing Capacity of Small Diameter Steel Pipe Piles

Modeling of Inelastic Behavior of RC Structures under Seismic Loads
Proceedings of the U.S.?Japan Seminar on Post-Peak Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Structures Subjected to Seismic Loads: Recent Advances and Challenges on Analysis and Design, held in...

Stronger Longer
Like many older concrete bridges, the Sierrita de la Cruz Creek Bridge, a 1957 crossing near Amarillo, Texas, suffered from concrete deterioration. When the Texas Department of Transportation...

Maintenance of Diaphragm-Girder Connections
Fatigue cracking at diaphragm-girder connections and at similar connections of cross-frames and floorbeams have been common in steel highway bridges for the past 20 or 30 years. Fatigue...

Effect of Column-to-Beam Strength Ratio on Seismic Performance of RC Moment Frames
Reinforced concrete (RC) moment frames are often used in building applications. During strong earthquake excitations, such buildings have been subject to soft-story or column sidesway...

Update of Serviceability Design Considerations for Low-Rise Steel Buildings
In 1990, the American Institute of Steel Construction published Servicability Design Considerations for Low-Rise Buildings by James M. Fisher and Michael A. West. This document was published...

Rehabilitation of the Packers Falls Bridge
The Packers Falls Bridge was constructed in 1912 and consists of a 42' (12.8m) single span, reinforced concrete arch structure. This bridge was constructed using a unique forming system...

Evolution of Composite Floor Systems in the United States
Composite floor systems, which combine structural steel beams with a cast-in-place concrete slab, have grown in popularity in the U.S. during the past 40 years. In most early applications,...

New Bridge Deck Will Use FRP Form and Reinforcement

Mile High Design
Denver's hybrid steel and concrete Invesco Field at Mile High, the National Football League's first design/build stadium, is on schedule to replace the existing...

Pushing Back
(Available on in special edition) The design for the $3.5-million Cameron Run tunnel rehabilitation project involved a tricky and relatively unproven method of pushing corrugated steel...

Structures: Fiberglass Composite Used in Mars Research Station

Holding Steady
The San Diego�Coronado Bay Bridge is an unmistakable landmark that frames the skyline of downtown San Diego, providing a vital link between the mainland and the Coronado peninsula. The...

Sharp Curves
In Madison, Mississippi, just north of Jackson on Interstate 55, a diamond interchange with State Route 463 has become a bottleneck for commuters and local motorists. But the typical solution�a...

Competitive Edge
A new design system called the simplified economical bridge design (SEBD) makes steel cost-competitive with concrete for short- and medium-span bridges for the first time. In fact, a comparative...

Composites Enhance Timber Bridges
Two relatively new technologies are available for reinforcing or strengthening timber bridges with fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs). The first consists in reinforcing the tension side...

Extended Life Span
The Harlem River Lift Span�part of New York City's Triborough Bridge System�was the largest vertical span in the country at the time of its construction in 1936. The lift...
