Crossing the Yangtze
The Nanjing Second Yangtze River Bridge, which links two parts of the city of Nanjing, features the first use of an epoxy asphalt deck pavement in China and one of the longest cable-stayed...

Concrete Connections
A new application of polymer composites involves the repair and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete frame connections. Test results from a pilot study conducted at the California State...

Finding the Right Bond
Professors and students from a Swiss university built a dual-span glass fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge to gain a better understanding of how composite materials behave and how best...

Ground Attack
Buried surfaces made of concrete, ductile iron and carbon steel are susceptible to corrosion by the soil that surrounds them, but there are numerous ways that these surfaces may be protected....

Smokestack Rescue
The site of an abandoned cement plant was transformed, via rehabilitation and new construction, into a $56 million retail and entertainment complex. The most prominent visual landmarks...

Do Coated Pipes Last Longer?
Field studies have revealed that polymer coated steel pipe resists corrosion longer than pipe coated with other materials. Corrosion is the most common failure mechanism of pipe culvert,...
