Cementing the Future
One of the most devastating effects of the Loma Prieta Earthquake that rocked northern California on Oct. 17, 1989 was the collapse of the elevated Cypress Freeway (Interstate 880) in...

Dam Engineers Go Over the Top
In the 1980s, dam engineers with the Lower Colorado River Authority worried that the Wirtz Dam, near Austin, Texas, would fail in the event of a maximum probable flood. They looked to...

Shallow and Surfacing Ground Water in an Arid Urban Environment
Return flow from landscape irrigation is now a major recharge source and the loss of phreatophytic vegetation has caused decreased evapotranspiration discharge in Henderson, Nevada. Lateral...

Mixing Influences on Cement-Based Waste Forms
High-shear, medium-shear, and low-shear mixing tests were conducted on paste and paste + fly-ash mixes: The specimens, cured for 28-days, were tested for free water generation, compressive...

Bank Protection Toe-Downs and Local Pier Scour
The zone-of-influence for pier scour may impact bank protection toe-down depths. Countermeasures were required at a site along the Salt River in Phoenix, Arizona when the alignment of...

Riddle of the Riverbed
The design of the Salt River Viaduct as part of the Red Mountain Freeway in Phoenix, Arizona, presented unique geotechnical problems. A cemented silty clay layer underneath the surface...
