Expansion Joints in Buildings

Many factors affect the amount of temperature-induced movement that occurs in a building and the extent to which this movement can occur before serious damage develops or extensive maintenance is required. In some cases joints are being omitted where they are needed, creating a risk of structural failures or causing unnecessary operations and maintenance costs. In other cases, expansion joints are being used where they are not required, increasing the initial cost of construction and creating space utilization problems. As of 1974, there were no nationally acceptable procedures for precise determination of the size and the location of expansion joints in buildings. Most designers and federal construction agencies individually adopted and developed guidelines based on experience and rough calculations leading to significant differences in the various guidelines used for locating and sizing expansion joints. In response to this complex problem, Expansion Joints in Buildings: Technical Report No. 65 provides federal agencies with practical procedures for evaluating the need for through-building expansion joints in structural framing systems. The report offers guidelines and criteria to standardize the practice of expansion joints in buildings and decrease problems associated with the misuse of expansions joints. Expansions Joints in Buildings: Technical Report No. 65 also makes notable recommendations concerning expansion, isolation, joints, and the manner in which they permit separate segments of the structural frame to expand and to contract in response to temperature fluctuations without adversely affecting the buildings structural integrity or serviceability.

Now in its sixth printing, this book is a must-have tool for professionals in product testing, consumer research, and advertising claims support. It contains our most significant and useful technical reports from the last 20 years. Readers will easily relate to the problems and solutions in each 2-page scenario. And for deeper study, the reader will find a list of published papers on a variety of related subjects. Drs. Daniel Ennis, Benoît Rousseau and John Ennis use their combined expertise to guide readers through problems in areas such as: Difference Tests Rating and Rankings Claims Support Drivers of Liking® and Landscape Segmentation Analysis® (LSA) Optimizing Product Portfolios Probabilistic Multidimensional Scaling Combinatorial Tools Designing Tests and Surveys The technical content behind each scenario has been kept to a minimum so that ideas can be absorbed easily, but there is plenty of opportunity to pursue each account in more detail. Examples range from dairy products to beverages and fragrance products and are designed to appeal to a broad audience in the product research field. 27 tables for product testing methods have been included so the reader can interpret results from discrimination methodologies such as the tetrad test, the triangle test, the same-different method, the duo-trio test, replicated testing, and others. 186 pages, $95, plus shipping and 5.3% VA sales tax, where applicable for print copy.

TECHNICAL REPORT WRITING TODAY provides thorough coverage of technical writing basics, techniques, and applications. Through a practical focus with varied examples and exercises, students internalize the skills necessary to produce clear and effective documents and reports. Project worksheets help students organize their thoughts and prepare for assignments, and Focus boxes highlight key information and recent developments in technical communication. Extensive individual and collaborative exercises expose students to different kinds of technical writing problems and solutions. Annotated student examples--more than 100 in all--illustrate different writing styles and approaches to problems. Numerous short and long examples throughout the text demonstrate solutions for handling writing assignments in current career situations. The four-color artwork in the chapter on creating visuals keeps pace with contemporary workplace capabilities. The Tenth Edition offers the latest information on using electronic resumes and documenting electronic sources and Ethics and Globalization sidebars that highlight these two important topics in the technical communication field. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Corrugated Plastic Ducts for Internal Bonded Post-tensioning

Optimum corrosion protection of post-tensioning tendons has been a priority since the beginning of this technology. The temporary ban of grouted post-tensioning tendons in the United Kingdom, from 1992-1996, has initiated a review of all aspects related to durability of post-tensioning tendons. One of the UK conclusions of this review was to require encapsulation of the post-tensioning tendons into wear-resistant and leak-tight plastic ducts to serve as an additional corrosion protection barrier. Since that time, other countries have at least partially adopted similar approaches. Designs of these plastic ducts may vary significantly between different suppliers. In addition, experience with these systems is still relatively limited. Hence, these plastic ducts cannot be standardised at this time. Therefore, the former FIP Commission 2, and now fib Commission 9 Reinforcing and Prestressing Materials and Systems, has set-up a task group to prepare a fib report on corrugated plastic ducts for internal, bonded post-tensioning. This report is written as a guide for an approval process for such plastic ducts. It shall serve readers such as authorities, and engineers as a guide on how to set-up a formal state approval process for these ducts, or at least allow them to properly assess systems offered for a specific project.

Technical Reports are usually written according to general standards, corporate - sign standards of the current university or company, logical rules and practical - periences. These rules are not known well enough among engineers. There are many books that give general advice in writing. This book is specialised in how to write Technical Reports and addresses not only engineers, but also natural sci- th tists, computer scientists, etc. It is based on the 6 edition published in 2008 by st Vieweg in German and is now published as 1 edition by Springer in English. Both authors of the German edition have long experience in educating en- neers at the University of Applied Sciences Hannover. They have held many l- tures where students had to write reports and took notes about all positive and negative examples that occurred in design reports, lab work reports, and in theses. Prof. Dr. Lutz Hering has worked for VOLKSWAGEN and DAIMLER and then changed to the University of Applied Sciences Hannover where he worked from 1974 until 2000. He held lectures on Technical Drawing, Construction and Design, CAD and Materials Science. Dr. Heike Hering worked nine years as a Technical Writer and was responsible for many CAD manuals in German and English. She is now employed at TÜV NORD Akademie, where she is responsible for E-Learning projects, technical documentation and software training and supervises students who are writing their theses.
