General
Design of Latticed Steel Transmission Structures specifies requirements for the design, fabrication, and testing of members and connections for electrical transmission structures. These...

Loading, Geometry, and Analysis
This Standard applies to latticed steel transmission structures. These structures shall be either self-supporting or guyed. They consist of hot-rolled or cold-formed prismatic members...

Testing
The purchaser shall specify in the contract documents which structures or components of structures are to be tested. If a proof test of a structure or a component of a structure is specified,...

Design and Installation of Auger Steel Catenary Risers
The Auger export pipelines are connected to the TLP by steel catenary risers (SCRs). This is believed to be the first time steel pipe has been used for catenary risers. SCRs offer advantages...

Asset Management of Earth Retaining Structures: Design through Design Life
Regarding new earth retaining structures (ERS) construction, the message is clear: plan for asset management. New construction is certainly not immune to performance issues, and the time...

Response of Tension Piles to Simulated Seismic Motion in Saturated Fine Sand

Flexural Behavior of Slender Post-Tensioned Masonry Walls
The 2002 edition of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC, 2002) design provisions for masonry structures includes a chapter on the design of post-tensioned masonry (PTM) walls with...

Special Structures: Past, Present, and Future
Special structures are landmarks and testimonials to the achievements of the structural engineering profession. They are true three-dimensional...

Enduring Strength
The long-term effectiveness of posttensioning in bridges depends on the resiliency of the tendons, and various factors related to construction and marine environments come into play. How...

Degrees of Belief
Subjective Probability and Engineering Judgment
Degrees of Belief artfully weaves together three elements at the very core of engineering: uncertainties in knowledge, inductive reasoning,...

Tension Stiffening Effect in RC Beams with Steel Fiber

Small-Diameter Round Timber Connections
An over stocking of trees having diameters less than 20 cm, as measured 1.52 m off the ground presents a major fire hazard to over 54 million acres of National Forest land. Improving the...

Fast Forward
Under the aegis of the French government, the Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Français (French National Railway Society), or SNCF, has built two new bridges, each approximately 1,100...

Smart Online Structural Monitoring and Diagnosis
(abstract only) This paper describes the observation matrix as innovative monitoring and diagnosis: (1) The matrix elements of the observation matrix multiplied by its transposed serve...

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...
