Double Domed (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue only)
A 45,000-seat soccer stadium under construction in La Plata, Argentina, takes domed roof design to the next level. A Tenstar dome, first used in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, consists of...

Design of Low Rise Dome for the University of Hawaii at Manoa
The 97.5m span dome covering the new multipurpose sports arena at the University of Hawaii in Manoa is a spherical, triangulated dome structure with a rise of 16.2m. In addition to the...

Effects of Spatial Triangulation on the Behavior of Tensegrity Domes
A number of long span 'tensegrity' dome type structures have recently been realized pursuant to the inventions of R. Buckminster Fuller and David H. Geiger. These structures have demonstrated...

Floodplain Delineation Using TINS
Triangulated Irregular Networks (TINs) are becoming an increasingly common tool for modeling terrain surfaces on the computer. They are formed by the triangulation of scattered xyz data...

Augmented TINFLOW: A Deterministic Runoff Model with a Stochastic Rainfall Input
Augmented TINFLOW consists of a deterministic runoff model based on a Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) description of a watershed. The rainfall input is created by simulating convective...

Two Examples of Position Estimation

Hydrologic Runoff Modeling of Small Watersheds: The Tinflow Model
TINFLOW is a PC-based Geographic Information System (GIS) that utilizes the Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) and associated data structures, together with a deterministic, finite difference...

Block Triangulation by Bundles and Stereo-Units
Tests were run on simulated and real block data to evaluate the comparative accuracies of bundle and independent unit block triangulation. Cases run using the ISP simulated test block...

The Use of B&W and C.I.R. Photography at M.D.O.T.

History of Geodetic Networks
The 50th anniversary of the Surveying and Mapping Division of ASCE provides an occasion to review some of the many advancements that have led to the current state of the art in geodesy....

Control Densification by Analytic Photogrammetry
Numerical methods in photogrammetry began to receive wide-spread attention in the early fifties with the development of the large digital computers. The Worldwide Satellite Triangulation...

New Adjustment of North American Datum and Surveyor
A new adjustment of the horizontal geodetic control (triangulation) of the North American continent has begun which will probably include Greenland, Canada, the United States, Mexico,...

Surveying and Mapping from Orbital Platforms
The methods of triangulation and photogrammetric mappings have been successfully applied to the surveying and mapping of both the moon and the earth. The accuracy of lunar phototriangulation...

Analysis and Prediction of Photogrammetric Residual Errors
A mathematical model for the photogrammetric systematic residual errors has been formulated and its solution tested using the single photo resection residuals on observations. The predicted...

Photogrammetric Control Extension for Route Design
It is of utmost importance to select such a method and instrument for aerial triangulation which provides the required accuracy in a most economical way. Nine strips of wide and super-wide...

Planning Economical Tunnel Surveys
Economical tunnel surveys require careful advance planning. Methods and criteria for planning the surveys are examined, as are the factors affecting the choice of method to be used. A...

Post Block Aerial Triangulation with Height Constraint
If the block triangulation and adjustment has been completed, the adjusted exterior orientation information for each of the photos can be used for subsequent post block work such as in...

Modified Methods in Numerical Radial Triangulation
Two new modifications in numerical radial triangulation for extending horizontal control are presented. The first method, called the Method of Independent Stereopairs, involves computation...

Geodetic Computations by Electronic Computer
The electronic computer makes the recomputation of old control surveys on the North American Datum of 1927 economically feasible. Restoration of the Massachusetts Town Boundary Survey...

Control Surveys: Historical Summary, Preface, and Chapter 1
This report reviews preliminary needs for modern control survey standards and applications with information sources. Control surveys are defined, as well as kinds of measurement, triangulation,...
