Steel Compression Member Design in the 1994 Canadian Standard
The 1994 edition of CSA Standard S 16.1-M94, Limit states design of steel structures (CSA 1994) contains explicit methods for computing the compressive resistance of monosymmetric and...

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...

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...

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...

Field Measurements of Tensile Forces on a Spherical Dome Sector Caused by Internal Load of a Granular Product in Storage
Using a number of existing equations developed application to silos, bins, and hoppers, the horizontal load resulting from the stored product can be calculated. In this paper, the physical...

A Study on Buckling Characteristics of Single-Layer Latticed Domes with the Initial Geometrical Imperfection

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...

Transient Response of Guyed Telecommunication Towers Subjected to Cable Ice-Shedding
This paper presents the results of a numerical study of the transient response of guyed telecommunication towers subjected to sudden ice shedding from the guy wires. Detailed nonlinear...

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....
