Strut-Tie Model Design of Disturbed Regions in Concrete Structures
The design of disturbed (highly non-linear behavior) regions in concrete structures is illustrated using strut-tie approach. The use of this approach assisted with interactive computer...

Experimental Study on the Strut Type of Cable Net Membrane Structures
In this paper a new type of suspension membrane structure combined with a cable net is proposed, in which the supporting struts are arranged between the membrane surface and the cable...

Form Finding Numerical Methods for Tensegrity Systems
The rigidification of Tensegrity Systems is related to selfstress states which can be achieved only when geometrical and mechanical requirements are simultaneously satisfied. This paper...

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...

Deep Cuts and Ground Movements in Chicago Clay

Large Deformation Elastic Behavior of Low-Density Solid Foams
A strain energy function that describes the nonlinear elastic response of a three-dimensional open-cell foam is developed. A tetrahedral unit cell containing four half-struts that join...

Improved Importance Sampling Methods for Structural System Reliability Calculation
Improvements can be made to importance sampling by recognising some of the essential features of the time-independent structural reliability problem. Thus non-interesting regions in the...

Parametric Study of Bracing in Lattice Towers
The behaviour of cross-bracing comprising struts and ties connected at their cross-over joints in lattice towers is subject to some uncertainty. It is affected significantly by taper and...

Behavior of Single Angles Under Compression and Biaxial Bending
Angle struts are being used extensively as web members of trusses, bracings of buildings, and they are widely used as main members in transmission and lattice towers. Because of their...

Stability Analysis in Bracing and Support Design
A post-buckling stability analysis is carried out for struts with multiple elastic lateral supports. Both hinged-end and fixed-end conditions are considered. A criterion of sufficient...
