41. Implications for Earthquake Risk Reduction in the United States From the Kocaeli, Turkey, Earthquake of August 17, 1999
Published: 8/1/2000
Authors: John L Gross, Long Thanh Phan
Abstract: The moment magnitude (MW) 7.4 Kocaeli, Turkey, earthquake struck the Kocaeli province of northwestern Turkey on Tuesday, August 17, 1999 at 3:02 a.m. local time and caused extensive damage to buildings (an estimated 250,000 building units suffered fr ...

42. Retrofit of Pre-Northridge Moment-Resisting Connections
Published: 4/1/2000
Authors: S A Civjan, M D Engelhardt, John L Gross
Abstract: An experimental program was undertaken to evaluate methods to retrofit existing steel moment connections for improved seismic performance. Six full-scale subassemblages were tested under cyclic loading. Typical pre-Northridge connections were retrofi ...

43. Cyclic Testing of Steel Moment Frame Connections Rehabilitated with RBS or Welded Haunch
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: C M Uang, Q -S Yu, S Noel, John L Gross
Abstract: The effectiveness of using the reduced beam section (RBS) and welded haunch for seismic rehabilitation of pre-Northridge steel moment connections was investigated through cyclic testing of six full-scale specimens-three of them incorporated lightweig ...

44. Seismic Rehabilitation Design of Steel Moment Connection with Welded Haunch
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Q -S Yu, C M Uang, John L Gross
Abstract: This paper describes a design procedure for the seismic rehabilitation of pre-Northridge steel moment connections using a welded haunch. Experimental results from cyclic testing of full-scale specimens demonstrated that welding a triangular haunch be ...

45. Design Guidelines for the Seismic Modification of Welded Steel Moment Frame Buildings
Published: 5/1/1998
Author: John L Gross
Abstract: Prompted by the widespread damage to welded beam-to-column connections as a result of the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) initiated a study to determine the efficacy of various techniques for the ...

46. Investigation of L'Ambiance Plaza Building Collapse in Bridgeport, Connecticut (NBS IR 87-3640)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 87-3640
Published: 9/30/1987
Authors: C G. Culver, C. F. Scribner, R D Marshall, Felix Y. Yokel, John L Gross, Charles William Clay Yancey, E. M. Hendrickson
Abstract: Results from an investigation to determine the cause of the collapse of the L'Ambiance Plaza building on April 23, 1987 are presented. The building was being constructed using the lift-slab method: collapse occurred during construction. The invest ...

47. Energy-Based Design Approach for Seismic Design: Energy Spectra
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6599
Published: Date unknown
Authors: P Khashaee, B Mohraz, Fahim Sadek, Hai Sang Lew, John L Gross
Abstract: Among the approaches that the Structural Engineers Association of California has recommended for performance based seismic design is the energy approach. In this approach, the earthquake input energy transmitted to the structure is estimated from gr ...

48. Fire Endurance Testing of Floor Systems Effects of Scale and Restraint
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1054
Published: Date unknown
Author: John L Gross
Abstract: Three standard fire resistance tests (ASTM E 119) were conducted on a composite floor system to study the effects of 1) test restraint conditions, and 2) scale of the test. Two full-scale tests, 35 ft (10.7 m) span, and one half-scale test, 17 ft (5 ...
