STRUCTUAL DEFLECTIONS - A LITERATURE AND STATE-OF-THE-ART SURVEY

THIS LITERATURE SURVEY AND STATE-OF-THE-ART STUDY ENCOMPASSES A BROAD AREA OF THE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING FIELD; DEFLECTIONS OF BUILDING STRUCTURES. OTHER TYPES OF STRUCTURES SUCH AS TOWERS, BRIDGES, ETC. ARE BRIEFLY MENTIONED BUT PRIMARILY IN THE CONTEXT OF INFORMATION THAT MAY BE APPLICABLE TO BUILDING STRUCTURES. THE REPORT WAS ASSEMBLED CONSIDERING BUILDING STRUCTURE DEFLECTION IN A SEQUENCE THAT WOULD BE USED WHEN CONSIDERING THE SOLUTION OF A STRUCTURAL DEFLECTION PROBLEM, I.E., SEPARATION OF STATIC AND DYNAMIC DEFLECTIONS AND THEN CONSIDERING EACH OF THESE AS A THREE COMPONENT PROBLEM OF LOAD -- STRUCTURAL CHARACTERISTICS -- RESPONSE (DEFLECTION). THIS SEQUENCE IS DEVELOPED AND DEFINED FOR THE RESPECTIVE COMPONENTS THROUGHOUT THE REPORT. ALSO THE INTERACTIONS OF MAJOR STRUCTURAL DEFLECTIONS WITH BUILDING STRUCTURES SUBSYSTEMS AND HUMAN OCCUPANTS IS REVIEWED. IN THIS REPORT AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO IDENTIFY SERVICEABILITY CRITERIA FOR THE PRESENT PRACTICE OF BUILDING CONSTRUCTION, TO DETERMINE THE THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL BASIS FOR THESE REQUIREMENTS AND TO EVALUATE THE RANGE OF APPLICABILITY OF THE EXISTING CRITERIA. PRIMARY EMPHASIS IS ON THE IDENTIFICATION AND DOCUMENTATION OF EXISTING SERVICEABILITY PROVISIONS. THE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL LISTINGS ARE NOT NECESSARILY A LISTING OF ALL AVAILABLE LITERATURE BUT RATHER A LISTING OF WHAT WAS CONSIDERED BY THE AUTHORS TO BE THE MOST PERTINENT. THIS REPORT IS BROAD IN SCOPE AND COVERS THE AREAS OF ANALYSIS, DESIGN AND EXPERIMENTATION. /AUTHORS/
