Uplift Resistance of Plywood and OSB Roof Sheathing
A test program to determine the resistance of plywood and OSB roof sheathing to uplift pressures created by wind flowing over a residential roof structure will provide valuable data to...

Using Condition Indexes to Evaluate Local Railroad Track Networks
The U.S. Army Construction Engineering Laboratories (USACERL) have developed condition indexes for assessing track condition that apply to local railroads. Indexes were developed for the...

Recapturing Boston's Heritage
Structural upgrading of Boston's Old State House and Faneuil Hall is part of an extensive restoration project undertaken by the National Park Service at a cost of $10.6 million...

Anchoring—A New Generation
During the time period of NRC Bulletin 79-02, and certainly afterwards, the use and application of wedge type anchors in Nuclear Power Plants took on a new perspective. The data gathered...
