Microcomputer-Aided Analysis and Design of Spandrel Concrete Beams Subjected to Combined Bending and Torsional Loads

Evaluation of Code Accidental-Torsion Provisions Using Earthquake Records from Buildings
Building code provisions for accidental torsion are evaluated from analysis of earthquake-induced motions of three nominally-symmetric-plan buildings. The results demonstrate that the...

Improved Torsional Analysis Procedure for Single Story Structures Subjected to Seismic Motion
An analytical procedure is developed that enables designers utilizing the UBC planar lateral force procedure to accurately account for the additional lateral response due to torsion without...

Prediction of Wind-Induced Responses and Wind Loads
The Recommendations for Wind Loads of Buildings and Structures of the Architectural Institute of Japan have now been updated. This paper presents the drafts of the new Recommendations...

Orthotropic Rigidities of Curved Concrete Waffle Slabs
Analytical expressions are derived for predicting the flexural and torsional rigidities during the pre-cracking and post-cracking stages for horizontally- curved waffle slab structures....

Modeling Beam Torsion in Prestressed Concrete Box Beam Bridges
This paper briefly summarizes the development of a specialized finite element model capable of predicting the elastic and inelastic behavior of beam-slab type prestressed concrete spread...

Thin-Walled Finite Element for Curved Multicell Box Girders
The generalized Vlasov's thin-walled beam theory was combined with the finite element technique to develop a new curved thin-walled multicell box girder finite element which can model...

Stiffness of Sands in Monotonic and Cyclic Torsional Simple Shear

Wind-Induced Response of Torsionally Coupled Buildings
This paper summarizes the results of a comprehensive three-dimensional dynamic analysis of tall buildings subjected to fluctuating wind forces. Random vibration theory is used to relate...

Torsion Rigid Gates and Their Hoisting Mechanisms
In Europe, installation of modern, steel, 'torsion-rigid', radial (tainter) gates and flaps, operated by one or more hydraulic hoists usually situated at the...

Bidirectional Seismic Response of Simple Structures
For design purposes it has been common to consider that seismic excitations act in one direction at a time. Analytical studies over the past decade have indicated that this may not be...

Liquefaction Flow Failure of Silty Sand by Torsional Cyclic Tests
The use of undrained strain-controlled cyclic torsional loading of anisotropically consolidated triaxial specimens (CyT-CAU tests), is proposed for evaluating liquefaction flow failure...

Torsional Simple Shear Apparatus for Drained and Undrained Cyclic Testing
Since a cyclic triaxial compression apparatus was first used to study liquefaction of saturated sandy soil, many different types of cyclic shear devices have been used to investigate drained...

Cyclic Simple Shear, Torsional Shear and Triaxial—A Comparative Study
Many different testing apparatus are used to duplicate in laboratory soil samples the stress state generated in situ by earthquakes. A wide diversity of data has been generated and this...

Axial, Bending and Torsional Behavior of Pipelines
Axial pull-out, bending and torque-rotation stiffness and capacity data and equations for underground torsional behavior are provided for utility pipelines using rubber gasket joints....
