Phoenix Central Library: Reading Room Roof
This paper discusses the design and analysis of the cable truss roof over the fifth floor reading room of the new Phoenix Central Library. Forty pairs of diagonally oriented cable trusses...

Efficient Nonlinear Analysis of Column-Supported Cylinderical Shells
This paper presents a finite element methodology for the study of geometrically nonlinear behavior of column-supported cylinder. Due to the discrete nature of the column supports, the...

RC Beam-Column Element for Nonlinear Frame Analysis
Recent studies have shown that beam-column finite elements that enforce equilibrium rather than compatibility along the element are better suited for the description of the strength and...

Assessing Effects for Disposal Sites off San Francisco
A simple particle tracking model has been used to estimate the size of deposition footprints and transient turbidity effects in the water column resulting from disposal of dredged material...

Wave Transformation and Load Reduction Using a Small Tandem Reef Breakwater – Physical Model Tests
The performance of several small reef breakwaters, and a tandem breakwater system (consisting of a reef breakwater positioned upwave from a surface-piercing main breakwater), are quantified...

Building Product Model, A First Brick in Computer Integrated Construction
This paper describes the development of a product model as a basis for an information system. This new approach is based on modelling functions of building units rather than physical entities...

ESPADD.BR: Expert System Producing Automated Designs and Drawings for Bridges
This paper presents the logic and methodology used in developing an automated software system for designs and drawings of bridges. Its primary purpose is to design and draw highway bridge...

A Simplified Method of Multistory-frame Analysis Including the P-Δ Effect
A simplified method of non-iterative analysis of rigid multistory-frames having vertical columns with different heights within the same story is developed by means of a modification to...

An Investigation of the Reinforcing Effect of Stone Columns in Soft Clay
A proposed major extension to an iron ore handling yard was located in an area underlain by soft alluvial clay. Stone columns were proposed to limit settlement of rails supporting the...

The Usefulness of Stone Columns to Reduce Settlements and Distortions - A Case History
A shed had to be built as a storage area for ashes and gypsum resulting from the combustion of coal in a power plant in Sardinia, Italy. Two field loading tests have been performed. In...

Analysis of Stone Columns Foundation for Storage Tank by FEM

Damage Evaluation of Building on Piers in Expansive Clay
A number of columns in the crawl space of a pier-supported structure founded in expansive clays were damaged as a result of ground movements since the building was constructed in 1975....

Biodegradation of Phenanthrene in Sand Columns in the Presence of Nonionic Surfactants
The effects of three nonionic surfactants on phenanthrene (C14H10) removal and mineralization by aerobic bacteria...

Biotransformation of Pesticides in Simulated Groundwater Columns
Experiments were performed to investigate the biotransformation of the pesticides alachlor, propachlor, atrazine, and bromacil under aerobic and nitrate-reducing conditions. Glass bead...

Recovery and Recycling of Copper from Wastewater using Iron Coated GAC
The purpose of this study was to prepare composite adsorbents that could be packed into a column and have adsorption characteristics similar to Fe oxide. This adsorbent was targeted to...

Eliminating Water Column Separation and Limiting Backspin at a 12,000-Horsepower Pumping Plant
Milwaukee's Water Pollution Abatement Program includes a deep tunnel system which collects combined sewage and street runoff during storms for later treatment when capacity is available...

Modeling Kinetics of Sediment Removal in Water Columns
Many physical, chemical, and environmental factors govern the rate of cohesive particle sedimentation in aquatic environments. A new information-based model that uses experimental information...
