Technique to Monitor Building ‘Health’ Utilizes Ambient Vibrations
A technique devised to monitor building health uses ambient vibrations; compressed and fused flakes of graphene are shown to have 20 times the strength of steel; and a vehicular travel lane paved with...

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...

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...

Diametral Compression Tests for the Determination of Shotcrete Anisotropic Elastic Constants

Compressive Fracture Energy and Fracture Zone Length of Concrete

Behavior of Soft Singapore Marine Clay Treated with Cement

Size Effect on Stress-Strain Curves of Concrete

Evaluation of Axial Compression Behavior of Micropiles

The Construction Challenges
The varied SPRP construction and construction management complexities of the new South Pole are even more challenging because summer work must be carried out within a compressed window...

Up against the Wall (available in Geoenvironmental special issue only)
A tight site in Portland, Oregon, bounded by existing roads and a light rail line and bordered by underground utilities, required project engineers to develop a new type of shoring wall...

Cap of Concrete
The roof of a new $84 million arena in New Orleans was built using techniques usually seen in tied-arch concrete bridges. The concrete components of the roof carry the large compression...
