Steel Frame, Precast Floors Meet Impossible Time Constraints
Only 13 months were allotted for expansion of the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage, Alaska, which meant that construction would have to continue through the winter months with little down...

Anchorage Port Survives Nature
Engineering at the Port of Anchorage was complicated by severe ice conditions, extreme tides, a current up to 5 knots which carries a severe ice floe, and poor foundation conditions at...

Experimental Trench in Armored Riverbed in Alaska
A trench through the armor layer of gravel and cobbles in a stream bed underlain with mostly sandy material might be expected to cause subsequent stream bed erosion. To test this, an experiment...

Some Applications of Prestressing in Foundation Construction
Prestressing techniques are advantageously applicable to some problems in foundation construction. In North America significant amounts of prestressing are used in tiebacks for temporary...

Liner Anchorage Tests
Tests were performed to determine load-deflection relationships for rib-type liner anchorages similar to those used in the primary containments for the Tennessee Valley Authority's...

Liner Anchorage Analysis for Nuclear Containments
A method is presented to analyze the behavior and evaluate the safety of a rib-type anchorage system used in attaching the steel liner plate to the concrete wall in a prestressed or reinforced...

Holding Capacity of Direct Embedment Anchors

Similkameen Pipeline Suspension Bridge
The mining and milling operations of the project are outlined. The concept, location, and construction methods of the 950-ft pipeline suspension bridge were predicated by the extremely...

Comments on Conventional Design of Retaining Structures
The performance of earth retaining structures is analyzed to illustrate certain weaknesses in the conventional design practice. It is shown that the yielding of a retaining structure by...

Bearing Capacity of Concrete Blocks
Theoretical and experimental results are presented for the bearing capacity of concrete blocks with an axially or eccentrically located cable duct and axially or eccentrically loaded by...

The Turnagain Heights Landslide, Anchorage, Alaska
During the Alaska earthquake of March 27, 1964, a large landslide, involving a strip of coastline about 8,500-ft long and extending inland about 900-ft, occurred in the Turnagain Heights...

Turnagain Slide Stabilization, Anchorage, Alaska
The Turnagain Slide was a large area of retrogresslve translatory sliding, resulting from the earthquake-induced liquefaction of soft sensitive Bootlegger clay including sand lenses. A...

Behavior of Splices in Beam-Column Connections
The results of ten tests on lapped splices in beam-column connections are analyzed. The three main variables were the splice length, the splice location, and the stirrup spacing over the...

Verrazano-Narrow Bridge: Design of Tower Foundations
The world's largest suspended span rests on large concrete caissons, 229 ft by 129 ft in plan. These are founded at a depth of 105 ft below sea level on a sand-gravel stratum...
