Calibration of Jackup Leg Foundation Model Using Full-Scale Structural Measurements
The fitness of jack-up rigs to operate in varying water depths and weather conditions is determined by "site-specific" structural assessments. These assessments are conducted by a wide range of companies...

A Preliminary Case for the Existence of Hurricane Alleys in the Gulf of Mexico
A review of hurricance intensity in the Gulf of Mexico suggests there are two alleys where hurricanes are roughly 20% more intense than elsewhere. This paper develops a physical basis for the alleys using...

BIM Belowground
Despite the wider use of building information modeling (BIM), the practice frequently focuses on aboveground details to the exclusion of those below the surface. But the BIM techniques used in the design...

Modeling to Prevent Disaster: The Waterways Experiment Station
Out of the tragedy of the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Waterways Experiment Station, the premier hydraulics research lab in the United States, was born....

Post-Earthquake Reconnaissance Using Digital Imagery
A Bird's-Eye View
Over the last decade, remote sensing has played an increasing role in geotechnical earthquake reconnaissance through the use of satellite imagery, LIDAR, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). These techniques...

Making Big Data Work for You and Your Project: A 3-D Geotechnical Model is a Smart Way to Work
Modeling the stratigraphy beneath a site and assigning soil and rock properties are important steps in geotechnical engineering. Geotechnical engineers often need to model ground conditions...

BIM in Geotechnics: The Benefits of Including Geotechnical Data in Building Information Modelling
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is becoming increasingly common around the world on building and civil engineering projects, but what are the benefits to geotechnical engineers and...
