Doubling Down on History
The developers of a casino in Springfield, Massachusetts, preserved the facades, ornaments, and structural elements of several historical buildings—including a hotel visited by James K. Polk, the 15th...

Design of the Future Mexico City Airport: Attaining Resilience in Soft Ground
The Lake Texcoco region to the east of Mexico City is famed for its deep lacustrine deposits of compressible clay, which amplify ground shaking during seismic events. The area is also gradually subsiding...

The Evolution of Launched Soil Nails: A 30-Year Retrospective
Launched soil nails are a unique remedial technology in the geotechnical construction toolbox. These 20-ft-long, 1.5-in.-diameter nails are installed in a single shot using a compressed air "cannon" at...

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

Loading, Geometry, and Analysis
This Standard applies to latticed steel transmission structures. These structures shall be either self-supporting or guyed. They consist of hot-rolled or cold-formed prismatic members...

Testing
The purchaser shall specify in the contract documents which structures or components of structures are to be tested. If a proof test of a structure or a component of a structure is specified,...

Dynamic Shearing Properties Of Compacted Clay
A series of 116 Q-type triaxial compression tests was performed using specimens of Goose Lake clay compacted at water contents ranging from 9 percent dry of optimum to 3 percent on the...

Axial Capacity of Steel Pipe Piles in Clay
Development of theories for the prediction of the axial compressive and tensile load capacities of driven piles is made difficult by a variety of factors, e.g., disturbance of the soil...

Asset Management of Earth Retaining Structures: Design through Design Life
Regarding new earth retaining structures (ERS) construction, the message is clear: plan for asset management. New construction is certainly not immune to performance issues, and the time...
