Predictive equations for bolted connections
(Virginia Tech, 1990-02-14)
A FORTRAN computer program applying the ultimate strength/instantaneous center of rotation method was written to generate the eccentricity coefficients used for the study of this project. <p>For single line bolted connections, ...
The Viability of Steel-Concrete Composite Girder Bridges with Continuous Profiled Steel Deck
(Virginia Tech, 2009-07-14)
The continuous permanent metal deck form system provides a quick and efficient method of constructing short-span, simply supported composite steel girder bridges. However, because shear studs can only be welded to the ...
Structural Performance of Fiber-Reinforced and Welded Wire Fabric-Reinforced Concrete Composite Slabs
(Virginia Tech, 2006-12-12)
The purpose of this research is to evaluate and compare the structural performance of composite floor slabs reinforced with 6 x 6 W1.4/W1.4 welded wire fabric (WWF) and STRUX 90/40 synthetic macro fibers. Slabs were ...
Lateral Movement of Unbraced Wood Composite I-Joists Exposed to Dynamic Walking Loads
(Virginia Tech, 2009-04-14)
The research summarized in this thesis is comprised of an experimental analysis of the mechanical behavior of a wood composite I-joist with different bracing configurations exposed dynamic walking loads. Three 16 in. deep ...
Performance Evaluation of New Corrugated-Type Embossments for Composite Deck
(Virginia Tech, 2001-08-08)
The purpose of this research is to evaluate the performance of new corrugated-type embossments developed by Vulcraft Research and Development for their 2VLI and 3VLI composite deck. Performance of deck with the proposed ...
Analysis and Design of Steel Deck-Concrete Composite Slabs
(Virginia Tech, 1997-10-15)
As cold-formed steel decks are used in virtually every steel-framed structure for composite slab systems, efforts to develop more efficient composite floor systems continues. Efficient composite floor systems can be obtained ...
Evaluation of cold-formed steel members in the Microsoft Windows environment
(Virginia Tech, 1994-03-07)
Further Investigation of Standoff Screws Used in Composite Joists
(Virginia Tech, 2000-01-14)
The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the performance of the 5/16 in. diameter Elco Grade 8 standoff screw as a mechanical shear connector in composite joists. Standoff screws are being investigated as viable ...
Monotonic and Cyclic Performance of Structurally Insulated Panel Shear Walls
(Virginia Tech, 1997-12-10)
MONOTONIC AND CYCLIC PERFORMANCE OF STRUCTRUALLY INSULATED PANEL SHEAR WALLS<p> Jared Bernard Jamison<p> The majority of residential construction and a significant portion of light commercial and industrial construction ...
Investigation of the Effects of Spacing between Bolts in a Row in a Single-Shear Timber Connection Subjected to Reverse Cyclic Loading
(Virginia Tech, 2004-09-16)
This thesis presents the results of testing to determine if spacing between bolts in a multiple-bolt, single-shear connection subjected to natural hazard loading affects seven strength and serviceability parameters: maximum ...
