A Different Angle (part of "West Side Extraordinary")
The unique, sloping shape of the VIA 57 West building is formed from cast-in-place concrete from the single, partial basement level up to the structure's 34th floor; braced galvanized steel framing completes...

When Old Meets New: Railway Geotechnics and Remote Sensing
Railroad track, like any other built structure, relies on a foundation of geomaterials for support. In its most basal form, the railway track is quite simple: steel load-bearing members (rails) supported...

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

Volcanic Soils in the Wet Tropics

Introduction
Permafrost is defined as soil that remains frozen for more than two years. At elevations less than 304.8 m (1000 ft.), it is frequently encountered north of latitude 60. It may also be...

Adjustable Foundation Design Development Innovations in Arctic Engineering
The purpose of adjustable foundation systems is to accommodate a wide variety of soils, including those which have low bearing capacity or which may be subject to settlement and/or horizontal...

Predicting Losses of Phosphorus in the Humid Tropics Using a Modified Version of GLEAMS

Work of Art
Cincinnati's new art center is being lauded for its structural animation and innovative use of form. Rendering this sculptural edifice in concrete and steel within a limited...

After the Flood
In June 2001, Tropical Storm Allison struck Texas, subjecting the Houston area to one of the most destructive floods in U.S. history. As part of the recovery effort, the Federal Emergency...

Larger Foraminifers as Contributors to Carbonate Beach Sands
Larger foraminifers are locally significant contributors to tropical carbonate sediments, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region. The two major factors influencing foraminiferal production...

Bridging Substance with Style
Engineers used an elegant form to come up with a functional solution when designing the new Damen Avenue Arch in Chicago. Two steel ribs, created using heat induction bending, closely...
