Heavy Aircraft Damage to Rigid Airport Pavements
A theoretical solution is presented for the damage caused by heavy aircraft at the transverse joints in a rigid airport pavement. Large stresses in the subgrade generate significant permanent...

Design of Composite Slabs for Vertical Shear
Three major modes of failure should be considered in the design of the positive moment regions of composite slabs incorporating profiled steel sheeting, viz.: flexure, longitudinal slip...

Development of Composite Slab with Truss-Typed Shear Connectors
This paper describes the results of the test on a steel-concrete composite slab with truss-typed shear connectors. This composite slab was recently developed. A series of tests were conducted...

Innovations for NDT of Concrete Structures
The proposed paper presents three recent innovations for sonic and ultrasonic Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of concrete structures which greatly increase the utility and speed of many...

Tests of Full-Size Pultruded FRP Grating Reinforced Concrete Bridge Decks
Results of tests of full-size concrete bridge deck slabs reinforced with commercially produced pultruded fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) gratings are presented. The slabs were designed...

Recent European Developments in Constructing Grouted Slabs

Nondestructive and Destructive Testing of a Three Span Skewed R. C. Slab Bridge
A three span, skewed, reinforced concrete slab bridge was field tested to destruction by the authors. Before the actual destructive test, nondestructive tests were performed to determine...

Shrinkage Measurements in Composite Beam Slabs
When the concrete slab on a composite beam shrinks, it is restrained by the steel beam to which it is connected. Tensile stresses, as a result, are developed in the restrained concrete...

Feasibility of FRP Molded Grating-Concrete Composites for One-Way Slab Systems
This paper describes the behavior of one-way concrete slabs reinforced with Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) molded grating. FRP molded grating is commercially available and is mainly...

Experimental Study of FRP Grating Reinforced Concrete Slabs

Nonlinear Response of Ground Supported Slabs
Refined techniques for the structural analysis of ground supported concrete slabs are presented. The principles of limit state design in terms of strength and serviceability are implemented....

Overtopping Protection for A. R. Bowman Dam
Arthur R. Bowman Dam is a 245-foot-high (74.7-m) central-core rockfill dam located on the Crooked River in central Oregon. The probable maximum flood (PMF) would overtop the dam by 20...

Safety Analysis of Handset Wood Slab Formworks
A reliability index is calculated for flexural strength of a handset wood slab formwork system. Load and resistance models are based on a survey of construction loads and wood test data...

Structural Investigation of Marina Del Rey Seawall
The Marina del Rey Seawall was constructed by various contractors between 1959 and 1961. It is composed of 660 panels totaling 39,600 linear feet. The seawall configuration is a type normally...

Joint Spacing for Airfield Pavement
This paper looks at various factors affecting portland cement concrete(PCC) pavement cracking, with special emphasis on the effect of joint spacing on crack development. A rational approach...

Performance of Airport PCC Pavements During Spring Thaw Periods
The portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements at two Wisconsin airports, Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee, and Outagamie County Airport in Appleton, were monitored during spring thaw...

Rehabilitation and Replacement of Slab and Buttress Dams at the Wissota Hydroelectric Project
The Wissota Hydroelectric Project is a 70 year old slab and buttress dam which required rehabilitation due to deteriorating concrete. Due to restrictions imposed by the FERC and Owner,...

Reliability of Plastic Slabs
In the paper it is shown how upper and lower bounds for the reliability of plastic slabs can be determined. For the fundamental case it is shown that optimal bounds of a deterministic...

Reliability Study of Ferrocement Slabs Under Cyclic Loading
A simple probabilistic approach to fatigue strength studies for ferrocement slabs is presented: A preliminary experimental program to obtain the relevant statistics was conducted and the...

Site Selection Criteria for Constructing an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) at a Commercial Nuclear Power Plant
Commercial nuclear power plants in the U.S. are responsible for providing their own interim storage for excess spent fuel. A facility located onsite, acting as a buffer between in-pool...
