Probabilistic Evaluation of Construction Deficiencies
A probabilistic procedure is formulated to evaluate construction deficiencies involving hundreds of identical structural elements in which uniformity of quality is desirable. These include...

Parametric Study on Containment Liner-Anchor System
The containment liner should maintain its structural integrity and thus its leak-tightness under any accidental condition. The liner is not used as a structural member to resist any mechanical...

Diaphragm Braced Members and Design of Wall Studs
Cold-formed steel wall studs generally are I, Z, or channel shaped with or without stiffening lips and with webs perpendicular to the plane of the wall. Because of their configuration...

Finite Element Analysis of Wood-Stud Walls
A theoretical procedure based on the finite element model and linear step-by-step analysis for evaluating the behavior of wood-stud walls under combined bending and compression loads was...

Design Selection of Patterns and Spacings for Stud Anchors used on Liner Shells

Brittleness in Higher Strength Bolts
The incidence of brittle behavior in bolts and studs heat treated to high strength levels (150 ksi to 250 ksi) is studied. The objective was to try to find a relationship between brittle...

Tests of Composite Beams with Stud Shear Connectors
Results of testing of composite beams in which concrete slab and steel beam act as integral unit; function of shear connection between slab and steel beam is to resist horizontal shear...
