Measurement of Vertical Ground Vibrations
This paper examines the use of surface and embedded mountings, to which transducers are attached for the measurement of free field vertical ground vibrations. Upper limits to the frequency...

The Effects of P-Delta and Semi-Rigid Connections on Response Behavior of Inelastic Steel Frames Subjected to Cyclic and Seismic Loadings
A numerical method is presented for analyzing semi-rigid connected steel frames subjected to various time-dependent excitations with consideration of damping, nonlinear material behavior...

Earth Pressure on Underground Rigid Pipe in a Centrifuge
A series of centrifugal model tests on underground pipes that simulate the actual construction process were carried out to investigate the earth pressure concentration onto the pipe (particularly...

Experimental Investigation of Composite Rigid Frames
According to the series of tests conducted by the authors on composite rigid frame models, the compressive principal stress in the steel web plate at the corner panel was considerably...

Staggered Truss Adapted to High Rise
The 34-floor Nashville Convention Center Hotel required a structural system that would overcome the tendency to vibrate in the wind. The solution was a modified staggered frame truss,...

Bending Moment of Underground Flexible Pipes in a Centrifuge
The effect of several factors on bending moment of an underground flexible pipe section buried in a ditch with sheet piling was investigated experimentally by means of centrifugal model...

Numerical Simulation of Soil-Pipeline Interaction in a Ground Subsidence Zone
In this paper, the flexural interaction between a buried pipeline and the surrounding soil is examined by employing a combined boundary element-finite element scheme. The flexural interaction...

Behaviour and Strength of Steel Frames with Semi-Rigid Connections
A research study was started at the Politecnico of Milan (Italy) to investigate the influence of the main governing parameters on the behaviour and strength of flexible frames. A sophisticated...

Advances in Underground Pipeline Engineering
The field of underground pipeline engineering has undergone a rapid growth during the last two decades. The analysis, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of underground pipelines...
