Low-Gravity Experiments: Shear Testing Takes a Nose Dive
A major challenge to making celestial soil mechanics viable is to re-engineer the profession's toolkit to provide geotechnical solutions without the luxury of ex-situ and in-situ testing as we know them...

Shear and Interface Strength of Clay at Very Low Effective Stress
Thin-specimen direct shear (TSDS) tests were conducted to measure the shearing strength of kaolinite, and interface strengths between kaolinite and acrylic plastic and anodized aluminum,...

Size and Scale Effects on the Shear Strength of Concrete Beams
This paper identifies and discusses the role of proper geometric scale of relevant parameters in the size effect in shear, particularly in terms of practical beam design. In the overall...

New Shear Stud Provisions for Composite Beam Design
The 2005 American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 2005) will contain significant changes to the shear connector provisions for...

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...

Overview of Structural Behavior of Members Subjected to Torsion
The torsion strength of concrete beams depends on many factors, such as the amount of reinforcement, the volumetric ratios of longitudinal and transverse steel bars, the concrete strength,...

Members Subjected to Torsion Combined with Other Actions
The combination of torsion with bending and shear (T-M-V) in members with both transverse and longitudinal reinforcement is the most commonly encountered combination in practical cases....

Detailing and Design Examples for Torsional Members
The nature of the internal force flow in a concrete member subject to torsion brings about both longitudinal and transverse force components. The resulting tension brought about by the...
