Leeway dynamic study : phase I validation by P Johnston( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of the first phase of the Leeway Dynamic Study Program was to conduct research into the dynamics of the leeway of four-person life rafts in order to develop methods to predict drift angles and leeway rates of other survival craft. This report has the objective of validating the work performed under the first phase of the Program by conducting a review of the software and the data listings developed in order to assess the adequacy and completeness of the documents provided, and by testing the software to determine its compatibility with the computerised search and rescue system called CANSARP. The software consists of a drift calculation library and a sample driver program. Evaluation work described includes the verification of the installation, compilation, and execution of the software; the review of code listing comments and structure; verification of the software and its output against the supplied documentation; and testing of the software's fault handling capability
Serviceability of floor systems with wood I-joists and concrete topping by Y. H Chui( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes a study of the serviceability behaviour of a form of floor construction comprising wood I-joists, wood-based sub-floor, and a concrete topping whose prime purpose is to enhance fire safety and acoustic performance. Phase I of the study tested a series of composite beams comprising a single wood I-joist, a narrow strip of wood-based sheathing, and a concrete topping. Beams were tested before and after addition of the topping, studying primarily the influence of joist size and the use of light shear connectors on beam deflection and vibration properties. Test data were supplemented by results from computer modelling of beam behaviour in phase II. The computer model was used to study the influence of connection stiffness between concrete and sheathing, concrete width, and concrete thickness on beam behaviour. Phase 3 tested a full-size floor system to evaluate if some of the phase I and II findings were still applicable. Recommendations are made for designing and constructing such floor systems
