Development of Transportation Engineering Research, Education, and Practice in a Changing Civil Engineering World
Transportation has been one of the essential areas within civil engineering since its early days. In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of ASCE, this paper presents a review of developments...

Engineering, Design and Construction of Lunar Bases
How do we begin to expand our civilization to the Moon? What are the technical issues that infrastructural engineers, in particular, must address? This paper has the goal of introducing...

Atmospheric Corrosion Resistance of Structural Steels
The main objective of this paper is to provide engineers with data on thickness loss of structural steel members resulting from corrosion. To this end, the writers have collected atmospheric...

Impact of Chemically-Induced Clay Transport and Deposition on the Hydraulic Conductivity of a Natural Sand
The purpose of this paper is to understand in part the dynamic impact of surfactants on hydraulic conductivity for designing enhanced pump and treat operations. This paper has two aims:...

Bayesian Approach to Support Design of a Groundwater Long Term Monitoring Plan
This paper discusses a retrospective data assimilation approach that allows one to examine the spatial and temporal differences between forecast and observed states. Their stability, or...

First of Its Kind
The crossing designed to replace the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, in New Haven, Connecticut, appears to be a cable-stayed bridge with unusually short towers but in fact is an extradosed...

The Benefits of Virtual Building Tools
Several short case studies illustrate how virtual building tools enable designers, builders, and owners to test any aspect of a project's design, organization, and schedule...

Joining Forces
In times of limited funding, roads and mass transit are sometimes seen as competing interests, but in Denver the two are united in a massive effort to reinvent an aging and congested transportation...

Island in the Mur
Floating atop an immense pontoon like a shimmering seashell, this elliptical island of steel and glass in the middle of an Austrian river—an inventive, unconventional bridge—was designed...

Under Cover
In capping a 190-acre hazardous landfill in metropolitan Los Angeles, engineers saved time and money by relying on a construction method seldom used in the environmental sector: design/build....
