Proposed AISC LRFD Design Criteria
The basic concepts of the proposed Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) method for design of steel structures in sound, logical and appropriate for design of such structures. The purpose...

Snow Load Analysis for Structures
Methods are examined for using basic climatological data for predicting rational structural loadings in areas of heavy snowfall where standards must be established by local personnel....

Torsional Buckling Study of Hartford Coliseum
A structural analysis for torsional buckling of four-angle cruciform sections is utilized to predict the failure mode of the space truss for the Hartford Coliseum and the results are compared...

Satellites as Aid to Water Resource Managers
Satellite imagery and digital data have been applied to solve water resource problems. Areal snowcover determinations, monitoring of river ice breakup, mapping of flood extent, and precipitation...

Water Pollution from Snow Removal Operations
Analyses performed on snow samples obtained from snow removal dump sites indicates the presence of substantial quantities of contaminants. This snow, removed from roads, highways and parking...

Load Combinations in Codified Structural Design
Alternative formats for load combination requirements in structural design codes are examined. Basic alternative models of macro load-time dependence for live, snow, wind, and earthquake...

Winter Roof Collapses: Bad Luck or Bad Design—
An overview of the collapses in 1978 and 1979 in Chicago and in the Northeast shows that, in most instances, the design codes are adequate. Designers, however, have not paid sufficient...

Snowbird Skier Capacity Estimate

Snow-Covered Area Utilization in Runoff Forecasts
Long-term data on snow-covered area from aircraft and satellite observations have been investigated for application to water-supply forecasting in California's southern Sierra Nevada Mountains....

Drifting Snow Similitude
The problem of modeling the drifting of snow in a boundary layer wind tunnel is reviewed. The important dimensionless parameters that govern the drifting phenomena are introduced. Theoretical...

First Annual National Conference on Recreation Planning and Development
Recreation planning and development is a multi-disciplined field involving engineers, planners, landscape architects, structural architects and other specialists active or interested in...
