Form Follows Geometry

*The $107 million NCNB Plaza in Tamps, Fla. consists of a 32 floor, 500,000 sq ft, 455 ft tall office tower; a 40,000 sq ft, 78 ft tall banking hall, and a 280,000 sq ft parking garage...*

Geometric Non-Linearities in Cable Tray Assembly Seismic Response

Local Wind Pressures on Roofs

*The paper reviews the results of the most recent research studies in the evaluation of wind pressure coefficients for the design of roof cladding elements. The effect of roof geometry...*

Constraint Based Design from Research into the Classroom

*Design is constraint oriented; much of the design process involves the recognition, formulation and satisfaction of constraints. Constraints are continually being added, deleted and modified...*

A Minimal Input Computer Aided Manufacturing Program for Personal Computers

*The author presents here an algorithm developed in Pascal for an integrated two and a half dimensional CAD/CAM system. The geometry and the tool paths are defined simultaneously, thereby...*

Relationship Between Channel Migration and Radius of Curvature on the Red River

*The system behavior of meanders was investigated on the Red River between Shreveport, LA, and Index, AR. The effects of plan form geometry (r/w) and erodibility of bank material on the...*

Conditional Simulation of the Wilmington Sand-Shale Sequence, Los Angeles Basin

*In shaly clastic reservoirs at a scale where vertical cross flow cannot be ignored the main source of heterogeneity is the apparent random geometry of the sand-shale sequence. That geometry...*

The Lower Mississippi River and the Coriolis Force

*Weather patterns and large bodies of water respond to the forces generated by the earth's rotation. A large north-south flowing river, such as the Lower Mississippi River,...*

Design Data of Kaplan and Bulb Turbine Units

*Some basic statistical data covering geometrical and energy parameters for Kaplan and bulb turbine units are presented. These data are further compared as specific rations for both units,...*

Real-time Animation of Construction Activities

*As a result of 3-D computer modeling, the availability of geometric data in an electronic form makes possible the use of computers for purely construction activities in ways that were...*

Design Data of Pump-Turbine and Francis Turbine Units

*Some basic statistical data covering geometrical and energy parameters for Francis turbine and Pump-turbine units are presented. These data are further compared as specific ratios for...*

Reliability of Geometrically Nonlinear Structures

*A procedure for first- and second-order, finite-element reliability analysis of geometrically nonlinear structures under static loads is presented. Structures are either linear or nonlinear...*

Random Vibrations of Geometrically Nonlinear Finite Element Structures

*A finite element formulation combined with stochastic linearization method is developed to study the large amplitude vibration characteristics of structures subjected to random loadings....*

Reliability Study of Randomly Imperfect Beam-Columns

*In this study, the effect of random initial geometric imperfections was treated as a set of equivalent random initial forces. This concept enables the direct employment of existing stochastic...*

Pipe Geometry and Pipeline Bridge Wind Oscillation

*Static and modal analyses of two pipeline suspension bridges owned by American Natural Resources - the Patterson Loop Aerial Crossing (PLAC) with a span of 850 feet (259 meters) and the...*

Friction Factor and Patterns in Armor Coats

*Recent observations of friction factors at armor coat forming discharges suggest the presence of distinct geometric patterns in the locations of the coarsest grains in armor coats. A statistical...*

Expert System for Mixing Zone Analysis of Aqueous Discharges (CORMIX1): Further Developments

*Two recent publications have reported the development of the Cornell Mixing Zone Expert System (CORMIX) for the analysis, prediction and design of aqueous toxic or conventional pollutant...*

Debris-Flow Research and Engineering Practice

*For debris-flow analysis to enter standard engineering practice, future research must extend existing models to deal with major complications that arise in field practice. This paper reviews...*
