Lifting Collars and Lifting Equipment
The terms lifting collars and shear heads are used interchangeably in the industry. In this book the term lifting collar is used since it is a unique term applicable to lift-slab construction...

A New Generation of Fiber Reinforced Plastic Rebars for Marine Construction

Santa Fe Sensation
The new renovation of the Sante Fe Opera Theater is a striking combination of architecture and engineering. The owners wanted to upgrade amenities, especially ADA compliance, and to protect...

Energy Loss in Long Rod Penetration Testing: Terminus Dam Liquefaction Investigation

A Refined Numerical Approach for the Limit-Load Analysis of 3-D Steel Rod Structures

Bond of FRP Rods Embedded in Concrete

Creep Strains Predicted from Constitutive Equations for Zircaloy-Clad Spent Fuel Rods

A Practical Design and Construction of Tension Rod Supported Glazing
In designing a glass skin-covered space, for the atrium, entrance hall or other core part of a building complex, the high openness and quality requirements of the space often lead to the...

Developing Standardized Connection Analysis Techniques for Slim Hole Core Rod Designs

Ultrafine Cement Tests and Drilling Warm Springs Dam
Ultrafine cement was chosen by the Corps of Engineers for tertiary grouting the Warm Springs Dam because of its ultrafine particle size, low settlement, medium viscosity and longevity....

Non-Fuel Bearing Hardward Melting Technology
Battelle has developed a portable hardware melter concept that would allow spent fuel rod consolidation operations at commercial nuclear power plants to provide significantly more storage...

A Numerical Analysis of Spent Nuclear Fuel Thermal Characteristics
A numerical analysis is presented comparing the thermal behavior of a spent boiling water reactor fuel pin and an electric heating element intended to simulate the fuel pin in an experimental...

Numerically Predicting Horizontally Oriented Spent Fuel Rod Surface Temperatures
A comparison between numerical calculations with use of commercial thermal analysis software packages and experimental data simulating a horizontally oriented spent fuel rod array was...

Glass-Fiber Reinforcing Rod: Characterization and Application to Concrete Structures and Grouted Anchors
This paper presents the physical and mechanical characteristics of a new glass-fiber reinforcing rod which was developed to be used as a rebar for concrete structures or a tendon for grouted...

Hybrid (FRP+Steel) Reinforcement for Concrete Structures
The most popular method to prevent corrosion of steel rebars and prestressing tendons is epoxy coating. This paper presents an alternative approach consisting in the combination of a fiber-reinforced-plastic...

Strength, Modulus of Elasticity, and Bond of Deformed FRP Rods

Tensile Testing of Glass Fiber Composite Rod

A New Aramid Rod for the Reinforcement of Prestressed Concrete Structures

Fixing Foundations
Conventional underpinning or pilings are still the most common construction methods used to strengthen foundations, but new grouting techniques are giving engineers some fresh alternatives....

Wave Equation Modelling of the SPT
The stress wave propagation in the Standard Penetration Test (SPT) is described in this paper. It is shown that the SPT is a complex dynamic system and that both force and motion measurements...
