This research was undertaken to: 1) design and construct a wall and basic subassembly of an emergency storm shelter comprised entirely of wood that could resist a "missile" impact at 100 mph or multiple impacts at 80 mph; 2) study the difference in impact response for various specimen configurations...

 

This research study focused on the long-term and repeated load behavior of wood-concrete composite beams in which the wood layer is composed of recycled utility poles. Previous research studies have found this type of a beam to have high efficiency and to be a potentially viable replacement for short...

 

This research study examined the effectiveness of the fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) spikes in repairing naturally damaged and deteriorated railroad bridge chords. Past research has shown that this process can be quite effective in improving the effective stiffness of railroad chord members that were...

 

This study presents the results of the most recent phase of laboratory research. The effects of support movements observed in the field test were examined by physical laboratory testing and computer-based structural modeling using AxisVM software [Inter-CAD. Kft, 2004]. The goal of this research was...

 

Investigations into the effects of the addition of vertically-oriented shear spikes with fiberglass reinforced polymer rods have shown that the shear spikes increased the effective stiffness of the stringers of a full-scale timber bridge chord specimen. This was previously found to be true on dimension...

 

This report describes the results of examining the effects of weather exposure conditions on the connection details of the open deck timber trestle bridge. As an exploratory experimental study, the time dependent mechanical effects of moisture, temperature and humidity on a particular connection detail...

 

Research at Colorado State University in wood-concrete layered composites for structural applications has been in progress for more than a decade. Key features of the research are experimental and analytical work to analyze notched shear key interlayer connections. These connections are being used to...

 

A laboratory test program was conducted on full-scale specimens replicating the main elements of a timber trestle railroad bridge chord. Previous field load testing had been done and was complicated by differing site-specific conditions. The purpose of the ongoing laboratory study described is to compare...
