Civil Engineering Study 83-3
This report is based on a thesis presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR) in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Civil Engineering. The financial assistance granted by the American Iron and Steel Institute and the technical guidance provided by members of the AISI Task Force on Structural Research of the Transportation Department and the AISI staff are gratefully acknowledged. These members are: Messrs. S. J. Errera, D. M. Bench, A. E. Cornford, Jim Davidson, Emil Hanburg, B. S. Levy, D. J. Meuleman, W. J. Riffe, M. S. Rashid, M. T. Vecchio, Hickmat Mahmood, Charles Haddad, T. L. Treece, Don Malen, Joe Rice, R. J. Traficanti, David Whitaker, Kuanh-Heui Lin, Brian Taylor, Al Houchens, L. J. Howell, R. G. Lang, and A. L. Johnson. All materials used for the experimental study were donated by Bethlehem Steel Corporation, DOFASCO Inc., Inland Steel Company, and National Steel Corporation.Thanks are extended to Messrs. K. Haas, J. A. Tucker, and R. ii Haselhorst of the Department of Civil Engineering for developing the testing equipment. Appreciation is expressed to C. Hagan, Supervisor of the UMR Machine Shop, for preparing the test specimens. Thanks are due to Mr. Chiravut Santuputra for his valuable assistance in conducting the tests and evaluating the test data. Mr. Terry Leads also helped in some of the experimental work. Special thanks are extended to Mrs. DeAnne Larson for the typing that she did in this publication.
