Loads: The Basis of Repeated Loading and Impact Loading Criteria
(James Cook University of North Queensland, 1978)
A Comparative Study of Wind Load Standards
The subject of this thesis is a comparative study of the wind load provisions specified in the major national standards. The basic premise is that two structures of identical shape and size and subjected to the same ...
The Performance of Low-Rise Open Span Heavy Steel
This report is an engineering study of the field performance of open span lowrise steel frame structures that have been subjected to extreme wind events such as hurricanes and tornadoes. The wind velocities in these ...
Analysis of Data for the Response of Full-Scale Transmission Tower Systems to Real Winds
...procedures for calculating the statistical properties of wind and structural response data are discussed in this report- The objective of this research is to indicate statistical procedures for analyses of data of ...
Wind Effects on a Full-Scale Frame
The design of structural members entails computation of members' stresses generated due to various loads such as dead load, live load, wind load, earthquake load etc. This study restricts itself to the determination of ...
Wind Loading Effects and Equivalent Static Wind Loading on Low-Rise Buildings
Wind-induced pressures acting on the Wind Engineering Research Field Laboratory (WERFL) of Texas Tech University are integrated over each surface to obtain three forces and moments at the base of the building along the ...
Experimental Study of Glass Plate Strength at Rapid Loading Rates
The time dependent nature of the strength of glass plates, commonly referred to as "static fatigue," is modeled by an equation involving an exponent "n" which is a material property relating to the rate of loading. Except ...
