Action of Ice on Engineering Structures

Author: K. N. Korzhavin
ISBN: 089499171X
Release Date: 2002-12-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This is a Soviet-era engineering work dealing with structures such as large bridges on the new highway and railroad routes, dams at unique hydroelectric stations, and other works in the Arctic regions of the U.S.S.R. Ice action assumes special significance in these regions where the rivers typically have a significant thickness and strength of ice, plus an intensive ice breakup. The work was translated into English by the U. S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory.

Marine Structural Design

Author: Yong Bai
Publisher: Butterworth-Heinemann
ISBN: 9780081000076
Release Date: 2015-09-18
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Marine Structural Design, Second Edition, is a wide-ranging, practical guide to marine structural analysis and design, describing in detail the application of modern structural engineering principles to marine and offshore structures. Organized in five parts, the book covers basic structural design principles, strength, fatigue and fracture, and reliability and risk assessment, providing all the knowledge needed for limit-state design and re-assessment of existing structures. Updates to this edition include new chapters on structural health monitoring and risk-based decision-making, arctic marine structural development, and the addition of new LNG ship topics, including composite materials and structures, uncertainty analysis, and green ship concepts. Provides the structural design principles, background theory, and know-how needed for marine and offshore structural design by analysis Covers strength, fatigue and fracture, reliability, and risk assessment together in one resource, emphasizing practical considerations and applications Updates to this edition include new chapters on structural health monitoring and risk-based decision making, and new content on arctic marine structural design

Recommendations of the Committee for Waterfront Structures Harbours and Waterways EAU 2004

Author: Arbeitsausschuss
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9783433601440
Release Date: 2012-01-09
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Since 1949 the "Committee for Waterfront Structures" has operated on honorary base as a committee of the Society for Harbour Engineering (HTG), Hamburg, and since 1951 also as working group of the German Society for Geotechnics (DGGT), Essen. Its full designation reads "Committee for Simplification an Standardization of Calculation and Construction of Waterfront Structures", which also outlines its goals. Following on from the previous joint publications, this new edition of EAU 2004 contains the safety concept with partial safety factors in accordance with the Eurocodes or the European prestandards as well as with the new edition of the corresponding German standard, partially differing on account of practice experiences. The recommendations continue to satisfy the requirements for international acknowledgement and application with regard to planning, design tendering, the awarding of contracts, building and building supervision. Further, the inspection and accounting procedures for harbour and waterway constructions are given from uniform points of view.

Non destructive Testing and Evaluation of Civil Engineering Structures

Author: Jean-Paul Balayssac
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9780081023051
Release Date: 2017-11-22
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The non-destructive evaluation of civil engineering structures in reinforced concrete is becoming an increasingly important issue in this field of engineering. This book proposes innovative ways to deal with this problem, through the characterization of concrete durability indicators by the use of non-destructive techniques. It presents the description of the various non-destructive techniques and their combination for the evaluation of indicators. The processing of data issued from the combination of NDE methods is also illustrated through examples of data fusion methods. The identification of conversion models linking observables, obtained from non-destructive measurements, to concrete durability indicators, as well as the consideration of different sources of variability in the assessment process, are also described. An analysis of in situ applications is carried out in order to highlight the practical aspects of the methodology. At the end of the book the authors provide a methodological guide detailing the proposed non-destructive evaluation methodology of concrete indicators. Presents the latest developments performed in the community of NDT on different aspects Provides a methodology developed in laboratory and transferred onsite for the evaluation of concrete properties which are not usually addressed by NDT methods Includes the use of data fusion for merging the measurements provided by several NDT methods Includes examples of current and potential applications
