Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 26 May 2020

Abstract
  When dealing with the construction of a bridge or the assessment of an existing bridge to traffic loads, one important point is the prediction of reliability levels for critical details to the expected traffic loads in its remaining lifetime: this is done here for details of a steel-orthotropic bridge ...  Read More

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2019, , Pages 42-54

Abstract
  Finding an appropriate system to absorb the intended energy of the earthquake is of great importance in seismic region. The eccentric bracing frame (EBF) is one of the structural systems that reveal proper behavior during earthquakes phenomenon. In doing so, design codes attempt to optimize EBF seismic ...  Read More
