Study of Interaction Between Pneumatic Spherical and Cylindrical Form Shells Subjected to Wind Pressure
In the design of pneumatic membrane structures, analysis of stress and deformations of structures subjected to wind is among the most important requirements. For the purpose of studying...

Postbuckling Response of Doubly-Curved Shallow Panels Under Complex Loading Conditions
The static postbuckling of laminated doubly-curved shallow panels subjected to the complex action of a system of in-plane compressive edge loads and a transverse pressure field is investigated....

Analysis of Inflating Habitable Space Structures with neomass (near-Earth-object mass)
The discovery of near Earth objects (NEOs), during August 1992, and that one of them is a dormant comet, dramatically changed the potential availability of near-Earth resources. NEOs provide...

Axisymmetric Vibrations of Thick-Walled Cylindrical Tubes in the Presence of Thermal Residual Stresses
The paper presents an approach to the analysis of axisymmetric vibrations of thick-walled specially orthotropic multilayered cylindrical tubes. The first part of the paper is concerned...

Mechanics of Curved Fiber Bundles in Composites
Fiber undulations are inherent to manufacturing processes like braiding and filament-winding, and sometimes occur as defects in other composite structures. This paper summarizes the status...

Implementation of a Viscoplastic, Kinematic Hardening Constitutive Model for Impact Prediction
This paper reports on a preliminary study to determine the significance of the Bauschinger effect on modeling impact and other large deformation events. Such events have significant implications...

Physical Model Tests of Dolos Impact Stresses
An on-going experimental study to determine impact stresses and static nesting stresses in instrumented large scale model dolosse is described in this paper. Seven dolosse were instrumented...

Cumulative Impact of Heavy Permit-Trucks on Steel Bridges
In many parts of North America, special permits are issued to heavy vehicles without considering their cumulative effect on steel bridge components. Such overloads may initiate crack propagation...

Comprehensive Reliability Analysis of Prestressed Concrete Beams
Using second moment methods, the reliability with respect to several limit states for seventy three prestressed concrete beams is assessed. These beams that are extensively used in the...

The Canadian Approach in the Design of Wood Structures: Conversion to Limit States Design
During the early 70's, the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) established the principle that structural design be carried out using the limit states design (LSD) method. The technical...

Load and Resistance Factors for Bridge Design Code
The paper summarizes the code development procedures used for the new LRFD (load and resistance factor design) bridge code. The current specifications use allowable stresses and/or load...

LRFD Provisions for Wood Bridges
A project to develop a load and resistance factor design (LRFD) edition of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Standard Specifications for Highway...

Metal Truss Plates: Less than Full-Depth Penetration and Shear Buckling
This paper presents the results of two experimental studies on metal truss plates which are used to join members of wood trusses. The first study investigated the effect that less than...
