Effect of First-Story Shearwalls on Earthquake-Resistant Buildings
A Practical system for earthquake-resistant building design is described. The system utilizes Teflon sliders at the top of the first story framed shearwalls to carry a portion of the superstructure....

Damage Assessment for Reinforced Concrete Buildings with Shear Walls
This paper tries to establish the analytical method of damage assessment for R.C. buildings with shear walls before or after earthquake. Incremental nonlinear spectrum analysis, using...

Prediction of Wind-Induced Responses and Wind Loads
The Recommendations for Wind Loads of Buildings and Structures of the Architectural Institute of Japan have now been updated. This paper presents the drafts of the new Recommendations...

Tuned Mass Dampers for Towers and Buildings
Tuned mass dampers (TMD's) are used to reduce the response of tall slender structures to resonant wind-induced oscillations. This paper reviews the authors' experience with the design...

Fluid Viscous Damper for Improving the Earthquake Resistance of Buildings
Experimental results are presented which demonstrate that the use of fluid dampers as add-on devices in moment resisting frames substantially increases damping and reduces seismic story...

Parametric Study of Structures with Added Viscoelastic Dampers
This paper presents the result of a parametric study on the seismic behavior of minimum weight-designed structures with and without added viscoelastic dampers. The structures are first...

Evaluation of Seismic Isolation Schemes for a Historic Building
The U.S. Court of Appeals Ninth District building originally completed in 1905 with an expansion in 1933, suffered damage during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The building is currently...

Joint Design in Composite Columns/Steel Beam Structures
The use of a composite building system, utilizing a composite exterior column and a concrete spandrel beam system, proposed by Dr. Fazlur Khan in 1967, is recalled. In the last 25 years,...

Wind-Induced Vibrations of Tall Buildings Using Tuned Mass Damper
A Lagrange formulation is applied to tall buildings using tuned mass damper. The resulting equations of motion are analyzed using a frequency window method. The method reduces the computational...

A Shear Transfer Model for Floor-To-Wall Connections in Concrete Masonry Structures
Based upon experiments conducted at the Univ of California, San Diego (UCSD) on floor-to-wall connections in concrete masonry structures, a constitutive model was developed for the overall...

Behavior and Design of Angle Connections Subjected to Cyclic Axial Force and Shear
The objectives of this study were to establish cyclic behavior of double angle shear connections subjected to axial load and to develop design recommendations. Five cyclic tests of double...

Composite Beams and Joists
Composite beams and joists used as flexural members in multistory steel-frame buildings are considered. Research results have shown that present design values for headed shear studs, used...

Seismic Resistance of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Beam-Column Joints
This paper discusses the advantages of using steel fibers in seismic resistant beam-column connections. First, the effects of fibers on the various aspects of behavior of concrete are...

The Innovative Concept of Semi-rigid Composite Beam
This paper discusses invention and development of a new type of composite beam called 'Semi-rigid Composite Beam.' This new type of beam is expected to behave better than presently used...

Field Measurements of Wind-Induced Pressures on Roofs of Low Buildings
Full-scale measurements have been carried out on an experimental building, 3.3 m high, beside the football field at the Loyola campus of Concordia University. Wind-induced pressures have...

In Situ Testing Performed at Jackson Lake Dam
Jackson Lake Dam was rehabilitated from 1986 to 1988 to increase seismic stability. Final foundation improvements consisted of dynamic compaction and mixed inplace soil cement columns....
