Research Transformed Into Practice presents the technical developments and innovations that have resulted in a successful transfer of research supported by the National Science Foundation into the practice of engineering and construction. More than 60 papers summarize research work, scholarly findings, and practical applications emanating from past and current projects in areas such as structures, structural mechanics, geomechanics, geotechnical and structural systems, and construction materials. Chapters detail new and/or improved products; materials; methods of construction, analysis, and design; and computer software. Other chapters describe new or revised standards and codes.Ø

Topics include:

engineering infrastructures composites, structural systems, and connections instrumentation software masonry bridges seismic issues analysis and design concrete

Specific papers cover such topics as random vibration analysis; injection grouting for repair of masonry; aerodynamic design of cable-supported bridges; seismic rehabilitation of older steel buildings.

The papers in this collection were originally presented at a meeting sponsored by the National Science Foundation, held in Crystal City, Virginia, June 14-16, 1995.
