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....

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...

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...

Above Them All
The design for what would be the next world's tallest building relies on a 1,550 ft (472 m) high concrete core that will give occupants of the top floors of the building unimpeded...

Branching Out (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue only)
The Cologne/Bonn Airport in Germany is currently undergoing its biggest construction project to date: a $200 million, five-story addition. Close and productive collaboration between the...

Application of Water Column Dampers to Control Motions of the Wall Centre, Vancouver
The Wall Centre, a 450 foot tall high-rise tower currently under construction in downtown Vancouver will be the highest building to be constructed in that city. Wind tunnel testing indicated...

Foundation Design for the Elevated Station
The Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is located at an elevation of 2,850 m on the 3,200 m thick polar plateau, a field of ice and snow that is moving toward the ocean at a rate of 10...

Best of Both Worlds
All around the Pacific Rim structural engineers are experimenting with concrete filled steel tubes as structural elements. The concrete filled tubes take advantage of the best properties...

Bangkok Blockbuster
When completed, the 54-kilometer Bang Na-Bang Pli-Bang Pakong Expressway in Bangkok, Thailand, will be the longest elevated expressway in the world. The precast segmental method is being...

Holding Court
Contractors had their work cut out for them when structural engineers specified concrete-filled steel tubes for the Thomas F. Eagleton Federal Courthouse's perimeter columns....

Isolating the Arts
The LG Kangnam Building in Seoul, Korea, is a multi-use, 140,000 sq m project, consisting of a 40 story, 183 m tall office tower, an adjacent 9-story acoustically base-isolated performing...
