Denver International Airport Tensile Roof Case Study: The Fabrication and Construction Process

The Body Language of Tensile Structures
Considered to be a 'body' and its visual appearance as 'non verbal, intuitable information,' a building has a Body Language that is employed as a primary mode. Presented is an intuitive...

Application of Computer-Aided Structural Engineering
From as early as 1988, the Civil/Structural Group of Bechtel Corp.'s Houston Regional Office has viewed its automated production tools as components of a production system. Intergraph's...

Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers 1993
Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers Vol. 158, 1993 contains abstracts for all ASCE journal papers and technical notes,...

Structure Modelization Using Expert Elements `Neural Stiffness Method'

Settlement Analysis of Landfill Liners over Deep Mined Areas
Tensile strains due to differential settlement from past mining activities were evaluated for a landfill liner. The landfill cell encompasses 20 acres and is located on a subsurface profile...

Soil-Structure Interaction During Mining Induced Ground Movements
Mining induced subsidence can result in significant ground deformation, which is generally non-uniform. Although this deformation occurs slowly with small inertial forces, it often results...

Seismic Performance Behavior of Precast Concrete Beam-Column Joints
The experimental test program being conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology on 1/3-scale model precast concrete beam-to-column connections is summarized. The objective...

Tension Pile Test
The California Department of Transportation is conducting FULL SCALE AXIAL LOAD TESTS of 34 piles. This research project/proof test is being jointly conducted by public agencies (Caltrans...

Investigation of Full-Scale Performance of Structures—Research Potentials
It is well known that actual, or true, behavior of completed structures does not necessarily conform to often simplified analysis predictions. This may be due to any of several reasons...

Bridge Management Research Needs
The present article deals with some aspects of bridge management of particular interest to bridge engineers and to bridge users at the moment. It addresses questions such as life-cycle...

Design of Stay Cables
Cable stayed structures, consisting of slender superstructure, stay cables and pylons are optimal systems for long span structures with regard to design an economy. The important function...

Analysis and Design of SFRC Structural Elements
This paper presents and validates practical methods for flexural, shear and torsional analysis and design of fibrous reinforced concrete structural elements. The effects of both fiber...
