    • Barrel crash cushions 

      Hirsch, Teddy J.; Ivey, Don L. (United States. Patent and Trademark OfficeTexas A&M University. Libraries, 2000-10-03)
      Apparatus and methods are described relating to barrel crash cushions which readily collapse when impacted from a substantially end-on direction, and are more capable than conventional designs of substantially redirecting ...
    • Buckling of suspended cambered girders 

      Peart, Walter Lee (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1990)
      The process of designing a typical simply supported girder for service loads is well established. However, the fact that the girder will be suspended by cables during the erection phase affects the safety of the girder. ...
    • Design of substructures for transmission towers 

      Aviles-Rios, Dionel Emilio (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1966)
      A study was made of the influence of underream diameter, depth of underream and angle of pull on the ultimate capacity of drilled and underreamed footings subjected to uplift. Discussion of present methods of design ...
    • Mutual impedance of two thin, linear, coplanar, perpendicular dipole antennas 

      Selot, Manohar (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1967)
      A general expression was developed for the mutual impedance of two thin, linear, coplanar, perpendicular dipole antennas using the method of vector potential and integral solution. Four new types of integrals, termed as ...
    • Optimum design of radio telescope backup trusses 

      Wagle, Vivek Dnyaneshwa (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1984)
      A hybrid method of optimum design is developed to minimize the weight of radio telescope backup trusses. The design variables consist of the member areas and the node locations of some selected joints of the backup truss. ...
    • Stress-strain properties of soil-aggregate subjected to rapid loading 

      Koehler, Albert Max (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1964)
    • A study of dynamic load-deformation and damping properties of sands concerned with a pile-soil system 

      Chan, Paul Chi-Keung (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1968)
      Despite various philosophies which have been proposed, our knowledge of the behavior of piled-foundation is still far from complete. This is partly due to the fact that the pile-soil interaction is markedly complex, ...
    • Wave equation analyses of full-scale test piles using measured field data 

      Foye, Robert (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1972)
      A procedure for obtaining soil damping constants for use in wave equation analyses using full-scale test piles and measured field data was developed in this study. The validity of the procedure was shown through correlation ...
