Big River Crossing
The Harahan Bridge, a double-track railroad bridge built in 1916, spans the Mississippi River between Memphis, Tennessee, and West Memphis, Arkansas. A century later, one of the former wagonways on the...

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...
