Redesigning the San Roque Dam
Engineers updated a 20-year-old design for the San Roque Dam in the Philippines to save time and money and improve the dam's ability to withstand earthquakes. The structure...

The Many Faces of RCC
The Chinese government, under an aggressive move to boost its hydroelectric power output, is building an extensive system of dams nationwide. Chinese engineers have developed innovative...

Symptom-Based Reliability of Aging Infrastructure Systems
Ideally, aging infrastructure systems should be monitored for safety and repaired in case of need. Eventually, authors believe that symptom-based reliability will be useful for safety...

Maintenance of Diaphragm-Girder Connections
Fatigue cracking at diaphragm-girder connections and at similar connections of cross-frames and floorbeams have been common in steel highway bridges for the past 20 or 30 years. Fatigue...

High Performance Dampers for Bridges
A multi-disciplinary research study investigates the use of shape memory alloys as seismic dampers in bridges. Shape memory alloys are a class of alloys that display several unique characteristics,...

Evolution of Composite Floor Systems in the United States
Composite floor systems, which combine structural steel beams with a cast-in-place concrete slab, have grown in popularity in the U.S. during the past 40 years. In most early applications,...

Cyclic Behavior of Three-Dimensional Partially-Restrained Composite Connections
This paper describes the test of a full-scale, bi-directional, PR composite beam-to-column connection. The PR connection consisted of continuous reinforcement bars across the column and...

Under the Microscope
Forensic engineering is typically more complex than engineering design because it requires the integration of specialized knowledge of materials science, structural analysis and design,...

Foundations and Ground Improvement
This proceedings, Foundations and Ground Improvement, consists of papers presented and accepted for publication for the specialty conference,...
