Sky High
The increasing demand for personal communication services (PCS), such as digital cell phones and pagers, as well as digital television (DTV), has created new challenges for creating and...

The Invisible Infrastructure
Most developed countries have 50- to 100-year-old underground utility systems that carry far greater loads than their designs. They're difficult to repair or replace, yet...

Shake, Rattle and Hold (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue Only)
In-situ lateral load tests of two bridge bents were conducted on Interstate 15 in Salt Lake City, Utah, to determine the strength and ductility of an existing concrete bridge and the improvements...

Building Between Buildings (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue Only)
Construction of tall buildings in the centers of the world's large cities almost invariably involves working within severe site constraints. The constraints can involve all...
