The Evolution of Launched Soil Nails
A 30-Year Retrospective
Launched soil nails are a unique remedial technology in the geotechnical construction toolbox. These 20-ft-long, 1.5-in.-diameter nails are installed in a single shot using a compressed air "cannon" at...

Dynamic Shearing Properties Of Compacted Clay
A series of 116 Q-type triaxial compression tests was performed using specimens of Goose Lake clay compacted at water contents ranging from 9 percent dry of optimum to 3 percent on the...

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...

Modelling of Displacement Piles in Sand Using a Pressure Chamber

Preserving Pisa's Treasure
Pisa's bell tower, a prime example of Romanesque architecture, would be renowned even if it did not lean. Construction of the tower began in 1173 and was not completed until...

Effect of Aluminum Compression on ACSR Conductor Sags at High Operating Temperatures
Deregulation and restructuring are sweeping the electric utility industry in the United States. As a result, many utility engineers are analyzing, re-rating, and upgrading their most critical...

Bridge to the Future
An arched footbridge under construction in Seoul, South Korea, that is reconnecting the metropolis with a tranquil island, will demonstrate the compressive strength and sleek design potential...
