A Conceptual Study of A Solar Power Satellite Using Centrifugal Force
We studied the self deployable Solar Power Satellite (SPS) using centrifugal force in order to explore ways in reducing construction costs. We designed a 340 kW SPS, and studied the unfolding...

Composite Walls as Shear Elements in Tall Structures
This paper describes a system of composite walling that can be used as a lateral load resisting system in tall structures. The composite walling comprises two skins of profiled steel sheeting...

The Effects of Bolt Over-Tightening on Bolted Connections
This paper describes a portion of the research program being conducted on structural connectors which have been over-tightened. Direct-Tension Indicators (DTI) may be specified for use...

Towards Robust, Effective and Efficient Second Order Analysis of Practical Steel Frames
The performance of the widely used finite element and the stability function methods and the recently developed pointwise equilibrating element in second order nonlinear analysis of framed...

Design and Construction of Post-Tensioned Concrete Floor Systems
This is a summary of the original full length paper which is available from the author. This paper assumes a basic technical knowledge of reinforced concrete design and prestressed concrete...

Nonlinear Analysis of Prestressed Concrete Structures
This paper presents a finite element model for the nonlinear analysis of prestressed concrete structures. The model can be used to analyze pretensioned or posttensioned, bonded or unbonded...

Impact of Non-Gaussian pdf on Reliability Estimates for Deep Water Platforms
The offshore community has invested a great deal in the analysis and design of compliant deep water platforms such as tension leg platforms (TLPs) and more recently spar platforms. Tension...

Some Aspects of Compression Member Design in Australia
The paper summarizes and elucidates the provisions of the Australian Standard AS4100-1990, Steel Structures, for the design of compression members. Emphasis is placed on those aspects...

Helium-Supported Hangar for a Small Solar-Powered Airship
For the IGA Expo '93 the Institute for Statics and Dynamics of Aerospace Structures, University of Stuttgart, together with Stuttgart Solar e.V. developed a solar-powered airship. For...

Effects of Spatial Triangulation on the Behavior of Tensegrity Domes
A number of long span 'tensegrity' dome type structures have recently been realized pursuant to the inventions of R. Buckminster Fuller and David H. Geiger. These structures have demonstrated...

A Practical Design and Construction of Tension Rod Supported Glazing
In designing a glass skin-covered space, for the atrium, entrance hall or other core part of a building complex, the high openness and quality requirements of the space often lead to the...

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...

Expandable Structures with Incorporated Roofing Elements
In this paper design aspects of expandable structures with incorporated cover plates are studied. These roofing elements can be made by single plates or by self-folding plates. In both...

Spatial Structures Erected out of Thin Shell Elements Fabricated on Plane Followed by Bending
The paper offers the examples of spatial structures of average spans (up to 24 m) and engineering structures made of prefabricated curvilinear elements originally having a plane form....
