Stronger Longer
Like many older concrete bridges, the Sierrita de la Cruz Creek Bridge, a 1957 crossing near Amarillo, Texas, suffered from concrete deterioration. When the Texas Department of Transportation...

Magnetic Perturbation Imaging for Prestressed Concrete Evaluation
Many prestressed concrete bridge structures in the United States and other parts of the world are over thirty years old and have shown various signs of distress. Corrosion or fracture...

Effect of Column-to-Beam Strength Ratio on Seismic Performance of RC Moment Frames
Reinforced concrete (RC) moment frames are often used in building applications. During strong earthquake excitations, such buildings have been subject to soft-story or column sidesway...

The Effect of the Slab on Beam-Column Joint Behavior
The three-dimensional effect of slab interaction on frame behavior has been observed in lateral load tests on beam-column-slab elements....

Update of Serviceability Design Considerations for Low-Rise Steel Buildings
In 1990, the American Institute of Steel Construction published Servicability Design Considerations for Low-Rise Buildings by James M. Fisher and Michael A. West. This document was published...

Evolution of Composite Floor Systems in the United States
Composite floor systems, which combine structural steel beams with a cast-in-place concrete slab, have grown in popularity in the U.S. during the past 40 years. In most early applications,...

Cyclic Behavior of Three-Dimensional Partially-Restrained Composite Connections
This paper describes the test of a full-scale, bi-directional, PR composite beam-to-column connection. The PR connection consisted of continuous reinforcement bars across the column and...

Mile High Design
Denver's hybrid steel and concrete Invesco Field at Mile High, the National Football League's first design/build stadium, is on schedule to replace the existing...

Guidelines for Inspection and Monitoring of In-Service Penstocks
This volume provides a guide to information and engineering techniques for inspection and monitoring of in-service penstocks. This guide covers penstocks constructed of steel, concrete,...

The Shape of Things to Come
High-performance steel (HPS) offers improved toughness and durability for bridge construction. This article presents several innovative concepts for HPS structural systems—including I-girders...

Keeping It Together
A new framing system for precast concrete columns and beams will allow tall buildings to withstand large earthquakes without damage to the structural integrity of the building. By using...
