Roles and Responsibilities
This section summarizes the roles and responsibilities of the parties involved: owner, design team, contractor, construction manager, and dispute adjudicators....

The Determination of Velocity Spectra and Dissipation by Direct and Indirect Means using Second-Order Accurate PIV
In this paper we present a 2 nd order accurate technique in space (following Wereley & Meinhart's (2001) extension of Cowen & Monismith's (1997) dynamic sub-window PIV...

Resolution Solutions
Disputes over such issues as change orders, extra work, delays, or defective work are an inescapable part of the construction process. By designing an effective dispute management program...

The Law and Practice of Construction Arbitration in the Philippines

Interstate Mediation As an Alternative to Litigation: Resolving Illinois' Lake Michigan Diversion Dispute

Spectral Modeling of Nonlinear Wave Shoaling and Breaking over Arbitrary Depths

Surface Motion Above an Arbitrarily Shaped Tunnel Due to Elastic SH Waves

An Analysis of Characteristics of Basset Force on Particles Accelerating in Arbitrary Flow Field
In present study of solid-liquid two phase flow, the effect of Basset force on a particle moving unsteadily in a non-uniform flow is not very clear. For this reason, the properties of...

A Hydrodynamic FVM Algorithm on Arbitrary Grids
This paper presents a finite volume algorithm for the vertically averaged integral form of the hydrodynamic governing equations on an unstructured grid system. The algorithm is applicable...

ASCE's Role in the Work of the National Construction Dispute Resolution Committee of the American Arbitration Association

Major Changes to the AAA's Construction Arbitration Rules

ADR, 25 Years of Progress

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) for Construction: Mediation as a Means of Alternative Dispute Resolution

An Interactive Computer Code for Generations of Artificial Earthquake Records
A new interactive computer code is presented in this work for the calculation of artificial earthquake records that comply with any arbitrarily specified target response spectra or power...

Nonlinear Hydrodynamic Pressures on Arch Dam Faces
A finite difference method was used to calculate the nonlinear hydrodynamic pressures on the rigid arch dam faces. The arbitrary reservoir shapes were transformed to a regular cubic by...

Design of Tunnel Lining from Shotcrete in Combination with Anchors
The method of designing tunnel linings from shotcrete in combination with anchors is given in the paper. The method is based upon the solution of the plane contact problem for a double-layer...

Limited Work Authorization for a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility
The issuance of an limited work authorization (LWA) by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC/Commission) allows a potential licensee permission to undertake preliminary site construction,...

Application of Spencer's Method for Slope Stability Analysis
For slope stability analysis with general, arbitrarily shaped failure surfaces, the Spencer's method has been found to provide a reasonably accurate result. This method satisfies both...

Nonlinear Hydrodynamic Pressures on Dam Faces with Arbitrary Reservoir Shapes
A finite-difference method was used to calculate the nonlinear hydrodynamic pressures acting on the rigid dam faces during earthquakes. The geometry of the reservoir is in a realistic...

More Than an Underground Success
Starting with the premise that reasonable people, guided by impartial experts they have selected, can come to a reasonable solution, dispute review boards, or DRBs, have amassed an enviable...
