When Old Meets New: Railway Geotechnics and Remote Sensing
Railroad track, like any other built structure, relies on a foundation of geomaterials for support. In its most basal form, the railway track is quite simple: steel load-bearing members (rails) supported...

A Pioneering Structure: The Eads Bridge
Though he was not trained as an engineer, James Buchanan Eads had the vision and will to design one of the great bridges of the 19th century. The Eads Bridge, spanning the Mississippi River at St. Louis,...

Spread Footings Revisited: Geotechnical Advances Lead to Expanded Use for Bridge Abutments
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has historically used steel shell piles to support highway bridge structures, probably due to a blend of familiarity and efficiency among...

General
Design of Latticed Steel Transmission Structures specifies requirements for the design, fabrication, and testing of members and connections for electrical transmission structures. These...

Loading, Geometry, and Analysis
This Standard applies to latticed steel transmission structures. These structures shall be either self-supporting or guyed. They consist of hot-rolled or cold-formed prismatic members...

Structural Members and Connections Used in Foundations
This chapter specifies design procedures for steel members and connections embedded in concrete foundations or the earth. Additional design requirements for structural members and connections...

Axial Load Capacity of Pipe Piles in Sands
The axial load capacity of driven, open-ended, steel pipe piles in cohesionless soils, is often estimated using a method such as the American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice 2A...

Behaviour of Open-Ended Pipe Piles in Sand During Installation and Loading
An experimental study was performed to investigate the physical processes which influence the axial load capacities of open-ended steel pipe piles in sand. A double-walled pipe pile was...

Axial Capacity of Steel Pipe Piles in Clay
Development of theories for the prediction of the axial compressive and tensile load capacities of driven piles is made difficult by a variety of factors, e.g., disturbance of the soil...

Offshore Technology in Civil Engineering
Hall of Fame Papers from the Early Years
Prepared by the Program Committee of the Offshore Technology Conference of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE. This series presents...

Offshore Platform Steel Specification
The discovery in the 1980's of local brittle zones (LBZ's) in and near the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of the fabrication welds in certain offshore platform steels...

Design and Installation of Auger Steel Catenary Risers
The Auger export pipelines are connected to the TLP by steel catenary risers (SCRs). This is believed to be the first time steel pipe has been used for catenary risers. SCRs offer advantages...

Cyclic Response of Steel-Stud Framed Wall Panels

Seismic Behavior of Tubular Steel Offshore Platforms

Closed-Form Expressions for Determining the Fatigue Damage of Structures Due to Ocean Waves

Development of Method for Measuring Susceptibility of Steel Plate to Lamellar Tearing

Alternative Hybrid Wall Systems
This chapter discusses alternative hybrid wall systems. Topics include unbonded post-tensioned coupled wall systems; steel coupling beam with fuse; and composite shear plate coupling beam....

An Experimental Study on the Behaviour of Full-Scale Composite Steel Frames under Furnace Loading
In view of recent large fires in tall buildings, such as One Meridian Square (USA), East Tower Central Park (Venezuela), World Trade Center (USA) and Windsor Tower (Spain), there has been...

Introduction
Permafrost is defined as soil that remains frozen for more than two years. At elevations less than 304.8 m (1000 ft.), it is frequently encountered north of latitude 60. It may also be...

Post and Pad
As the name implies, this type of foundation consists of a concrete or wood pad placed on or buried in the ground. It is the lowest priced option for buildings on frozen silt, which may...
