Tests are reported on twenty-six concrete filled steel tube of rectangular section after being exposed to high temperatures, to investigate the influence of temperature on section capacity and load-deformation behavior. The main parameter varied is temperature, from 20°C to 900°C. A mechanics...
Genetic Algorithm (GA) is a new technique in optimization procedure that works best in design problems with discrete variables. It employs the survival of the fittest philosophy in determining the optimum combination. GA optimization procedure is applied to weight optimization of steel plane...
This paper reports on load testing of a continuous three cell concrete box girder bridge. The bridge is non-prismatic, curved in plan, and has skewed supports. The bridge is over thirty years old, and it was designed with a construction joint between two continuous spans and a span with a...
The Horsetail Creek Bridge, constructed in 1912, is located along the Historic Columbia River Highway in Oregon. In a recent rating of bridges, the cross beams of the structure were found to be 50 percent deficient in flexure and 94 percent deficient in shear, mainly due to the traffic loads...
The concept of prestressing steel structures has only recently been widely considered, despite a long and successful history of prestressing concrete members. Several analytical studies of prestressed steel plate girder were reported in the literature, but much of that work was not studied with...
A parametric study of base-isolated structure with different isolation systems is conducted for understanding their dynamic behaviour. The superstructure is idealized as a one-storey structure isolated by different isolation systems. The various isolation systems considered are: the elastomeric...
