Finite Element Analysis of Splayed Steel Girder Bridges
A splayed girder bridge is a bridge which consists of a deck slab supported on girders with linearly varying spacing. The simple formulas and approximate design procedures in the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications ...
Lateral Earth Pressure on Non-Yielding Walls Supporting Over-Consolidated Sand
The most important problem associated with retaining wall structures is the additional compaction-induced lateral earth pressure. Currently, none of the available design methods used to calculate the lateral earth force ...
Experimental Study of Punching Shear Resistance of Synthetic Fiber Reinforced Concrete Interior Slabs
This study experimentally explores the suitability of Synthetic Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (SNFRC) as a feasible method for improving the punching shear strength of two-way slabs. The investigation involved interior flat ...
A Framework for Benchmarking Energy Retrofit Systems through Building Information Modeling (BIM)
The rapid increase in worldwide energy consumption has raised a global concern about the future of energy use and its impact on the surrounding environment. Such impact is causing resource degradation, increased carbon ...
Numerical Study of Localization Failure in Structural Steel Under Impact Loading
High quality steels are used as a skeleton supporting many infrastructure constructions like, for example, skyscrapers, arenas, stadiums, bridges and others. The likelihood that these structures could be severely damaged ...
Effect of Concrete Type on Flexural Behavior of Concrete Beams Reinforced with HSS Bars
High-Strength Steel (HSS) bars can be a promising alternative to commonly used mild steel since they have the potential of making more efficient use of highperformance concrete and reducing the required number and size of ...
