Geosynthetic Materials Help Build Optimized Infrastructure
In recent years, the world has begun to realize the negative impacts that limited infrastructure can have on economic growth and the well-being of humankind. Our infrastructure challenges...

Introduction
Many institutions and private industry organizations have prepared guidance documents with the latest scientific and engineering information on proper design, installation, maintenance,...

Porous Asphalt and Permeable Friction Course Overlays
Porous asphalt typically consists of conventional warm mix asphalt (WMA) or hot mix asphalt (HMA) with significantly reduced fines resulting in an open-graded mixture that allows water...

Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP)
Permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) consists of (impervious) manufactured concrete units that form permeable voids and joints, when assembled into a laying pattern. The openings...

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...

Alternative Technologies
In recent years, new permeable pavement product variations have entered the market. This chapter describes general characteristics for several emerging products. The following types of...

Appendix A: Common Concerns Regarding Permeable Pavements Fact Sheet
Back matter pages come after the papers or chapters in a published work. This back matter contains common concerns regarding permeable pavements fact sheet....

General
Design of Latticed Steel Transmission Structures specifies requirements for the design, fabrication, and testing of members and connections for electrical transmission structures. These...

Scope
This standard guideline covers planning, design, pipe materials, and construction of microtunneling. The term microtunneling is defined as a trenchless construction method for installing...

Project Layout
Microtunneling projects should be laid out with attention to the benefits and constraints unique to this construction process. The following recommendations address some of these concerns:...

Field Aspects
As soon as practical after their arrival at the project site, all pipes, fittings, and appurtenances should be thoroughly checked for compliance with the contract documents and accepted...

Construction Support Services
A preconstruction survey of existing structures within the anticipated construction zone of influence should be conducted before any construction begins. A plan for structures that need...

Notes on Heavy Lift Design
The interrelated activities and responsibilities of the various organizations involved in the lift design and offshore installation of topside facilities for an offshore platform are discussed....

Journal of Sustainable Water in the Built Environment
The Journal of Sustainable Water in the Built Environment presents activity and research developments in water issues, challenges, and opportunities throughout the developed landscape. The scope covers...

Mechanisms Controlling the Permeability of Clays
Coefficients of permeability, calculated using Terzaghi's theory of one-dimensional consolidation, are reported for smectite, illite, and kaolinite, in water, methyl and ethyl...

Performance of Suction Caissons in Sand and Clay
The use of suction caissons (suction piles) in marine environments has been increasing in the last decade. A suction caisson is a steel pipe with an open bottom and a closed top that is...

Advanced Fracture Control Procedures for Deepwater Platforms and Compliant Towers
This paper describes an integrated approach to fracture control problems – applied first as a necessary adjunct to the authors' own engineering practice, then in developing...
