Current seismic design requirements specify lateral displacement or story drift limits to be compared with calculated results from structural analysis. The lateral displacements for different types of buildings are usually predicted through commercial structural software, which takes much...
The objective of this paper is an investigation of the effects of the wall thickness and axial loading on the load-bearing capacity of a fire damaged normal strength concrete wall. Toward this goal, analytical modeling methods are developed to predict thermal and structural behaviors of...
This paper summarizes the results of 15 tests from a study on the effects of different types of straps on the lateral resistance of wood shear walls without openings. The stud walls were built with oriented strand board (OSB) panels. Five types of straps were used to bind the stud walls to the...
The track settlement causes the deterioration of track geometry structure. Analysis of track settlement is a significant condition for determining the maintenance cycle. The long-term behavior of ballasted track may vary depending on the combination of the track configurations. In the present...
The costs of training, licensing and security for agencies using the nuclear density gauge (NDG) have become increasingly onerous for public engineering agencies, leading them to seek less expensive alternatives to conduct compaction testing. The study focused on three comparators: difference in...
At the beginning of 2018 about 6% of California’s bridges are structurally deficient, and approximately 17% of California’s bridges are estimated to cost about $12.2 billion for repairs. The subjectivity in determining the condition rating is an imprecise process and may significantly affect the...
