Cross-Frame and Diaphragm Behavior in Skewed Bridges
The author examines the existing specifications and guidance for bracing provisions by AASHTO, AISC, and TxDot, and the need for developing bracing requirements....

Stochastic Simulation of the Colorado River Flows Using SAMS
The main purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the applicability of SAMS to the Colorado River system. For this purpose we have utilized monthly data at 29 sites in the basin....

A New Skew
Most bridges that cross roadways or other elements at a skewed angle are designed based on right-angle crossings with inefficient modifications. A new concept for skewed crossings is a...

Evaluation of Sampling Properties of General Extreme Value (GEV) Distribution-L-Moments Vs Conventional Moments
The sample estimates of conventional moments are shown to be biased and this bias increases for small samples, and especially so when the skewness is high (Wallis et al., 1974). The recently...

Scour around Exposed Pile Foundations
Laboratory experiments were conducted to measure local scour around exposed pile groups for a variety of conditions including different spacings, different skew angles, different patterns...

Pollution Transport in Karst
A new model of pollution transport in natural streams was developed and tested. Dead zone storage is modeled as a two time constant process. This approach better matches the observed persistence...

Effects of Modeling and Analysis Methods on Seismic Responses of Curved Bridges

The Effect of Approaching Flow Angles on the Local Scour at Semi-Circular Piers

A Generalized Approach to the Local Stability of Stiffened Plates: Part II–Approximate Solution
The paper presents an approximate solution for the prediction of the buckling stress of stiffened plates under combined loadings. A closed form expression is presented for the buckling...

Physical Testing of Two R/C Skewed Slab Bridges with Integral Wall Abutments
Two one-third scale models of an existing reinforced concrete skewed slab bridge with integral wall abutments were tested statically to failure. Typically, these bridges are designed using...
