Grid Pavement
Open grid pavements consist of concrete or plastic units with large surface openings filled with a permeable joint material, typically small aggregate (ASTM No. 8 or No. 89), sand, or...

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...

On the Inelastic Design of Steel I Girder Bridges
This paper documents the development of a relatively easy to use set of effective plastic moment expressions and compares the performance of these equations with a series of experimental...

Nonlocal Integral Formulations of Plasticity and Damage: Survey of Progress
Modeling of the evolution of distributed damage such as microcracking, void formation, and softening frictional slip necessitates strain-softening constitutive models. The nonlocal continuum...

Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites for Construction—State-of-the-Art Review
A concise state-of-the-art survey of fiber-reinforced polymer (also known as fiber-reinforced plastic) composites for construction applications in civil engineering is presented. The paper...

Effect of Column-to-Beam Strength Ratio on Seismic Performance of RC Moment Frames
Reinforced concrete (RC) moment frames are often used in building applications. During strong earthquake excitations, such buildings have been subject to soft-story or column sidesway...

Liner Lessons
The County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County comprise 25 independent special districts that cover a service area of approximately 770 sq mi (1,990 km²). Since the early 1990s...
