Add to EJ Playlist Reinforced concrete walls construction for building a house. The Wall-Ties & Forms concrete forming system is helping concrete contractors build quality concrete homes rapidly, and cost effectivly. More concrete forming videos available at www.wallties.co m.
Add to EJ Playlist The David Brower Complex will be a model of integrated sustainable design. This mixed use urban project features office space for non-profit organizations engaging in ecologically beneficial work, a conference center, a restaurant, subsidized housing and retail space, over underground parking.
The David Brower Center itself is being designed to achieve a Platinum rating from the USGBC. The building will incorporate natural ventilation, sophisticated natural day-lighting strategies, photo-voltaic panels, and rainwater collection.
The building's lateral system embodies Tipping Mar's philosophy of integrating sustainable design and high-performanc e seismic engineering. The system uses post-tension cables in ductile shear-walls and moment frames to create a damage resistant structure with restoring force characteristics .

Add to EJ Playlist Update: You can see some of the latest enhancements to concrete design in RAM Structural System v14.5 in our most recent video :http://www.you tube.com/watch? v=vT5aIDYtg7E
This video demonstrates the Concrete Shear Wall Design Module in the RAM Structural System. This module is a new feature in the version 12 release. It performs the design of reinforced concrete shear walls for gravity, wind, and seismic loads for American and British codes.

Add to EJ Playlist These structural seismic bearings are designed to transfer the horizontal earthquake loads between pier and girders
Thousand of them are installed to the post tensioned girders for the Taiwan High Speed Rail Project which was completed in 2007
