NTSB Issues Preliminary Report on Florida Bridge Collapse (part of Infrastructure Solutions: Bridges Move Forward)
In late May, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released its preliminary report about the March 15 structural failure and collapose of a partially-constructed pedestrian bridge in Miami....

Foundation Engineering...102
Most of our textbooks still separate foundation options into two simplistic categories: shallow or deep. That's why so many of us are geared toward thinking about the foundation...

Findings From a Joint Industry Study on Foundation Fixity of Jackup Units
During the design storm conditions the soil supporting jack-up unit footings may be close to, or at plastic failure. Accordingly, the use of elastic solutions to the problems of foundation...

Slope Effect on House Shrink-Swell Movements
(Originally published in Journal of the Geotechnical Engineering Division, 1980, 106(12), 1327-1344.)...

LRFD Compared to Working Strength Loads
This chapter contains examples used to demonstrate the design of footings to resist seismic loads....

Twin Crossings
The Hungerford Bridge actually comprises twin pedestrian bridges that are being constructed on either side of an operational 19th century railway bridge over the River Thames in London....

The Inside Story
A full-scale renovation of the interior of Oklahoma City's Civic Center Music Hall required shaving much of the depth from two trusses under load conditions, installing new...

Compaction Effects Induced in Cohesionless Soils by Installation of Pressure-Injected Footings

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...

Foundation Design for the Elevated Station
The Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is located at an elevation of 2,850 m on the 3,200 m thick polar plateau, a field of ice and snow that is moving toward the ocean at a rate of 10...

Keeping a Low Profile
The Admiral Clarey Bridge in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, combines fixed and floating bridge elements to span more than 4,500 ft (1,372 m) while hovering just above the harbor waters. The bridge,...

Seismic Response of Bridges with Soil–Foundation Flexibilities and Skew Effects

A Composite Sketch
Engineers are using the lightweight advantages of fiber reinforced polymers to build short span vehicular bridges and pedestrian bridges, particularly in remote areas, such as national...

High-Performance Powder
The application of fundamental principles related to the composition, the making, and the thermal treatment of concrete resulted in the development of a new type of concrete with outstanding...
