Wind Resistant Design Manual for Highway Bridges
'Wind resistant design manual for highway bridges in Japan' has been published in 1991. Before publication of this manual, there were no authorized wind resistant manuals which can be...

Superlong Cable-Stayed Bridges
Superlong cable-stayed bridge span is defined as one over 1000 meters. Problems requiring special attention regarding these bridges are discussed, namely: excessive cable sag; high axial...

Buckling of Guyed Towers
The buckling load of a column guyed in a plane by symmetric guy wires is considered. The column is built-in at the ground, supported at the top by guy wires, and is loaded by a vertical...

Research of the Limit Function About Imperfection and the Approximately Calculating Method of the Internal Forces of Hyperbolic Cooling Tower
The authors use the finite elemental program, which made by themselves and makes use of finite element method with rotational shell, to calculate the deformation in hyperbolic cooling...

Modeling Facility Engineering Processes & Data Using the P-C Approach
A facility engineering process typically involves participants from different disciplines, several life-cycle phases, and many computer applications. In this paper, we propose the Primitive-Composite...

Computer-Aided Guyed Tower Analysis for the Rehabilitation of TTI Tower, Baltimore
A large guyed television tower owned by Television Tower Inc. of Baltimore is currently being analyzed in order to evaluate the capacity of the tower to support additional broadcasting...

Establishment of a Habitat Monitoring Program to Assess Potential Impacts of Diversion of POTW Effluent
As part of the permitting process for a gas-fired power plant, the environmental impacts of diverting POTW effluent from the receiving water for cooling tower makeup was investigated....

An Assessment of Fish Entrainment and Impingement Potential for an Offshore Cooling Water Intake in a Tropical Bay
Fish entrainment and impingement potential were assessed for a proposed cogeneration facility on the west coast of Puerto Rico that will withdraw cooling water using offshore intake structures....

Application of Environmental Regulations on Design of Hydraulic Structures for Open Cooling Water System
Design of intake and discharge structures for an open cooling water system for a thermal power plant requires that the design of hydraulic structures meets the federal, state, and local...

A Dome To Remember
Under intense pressure from all sides, a trio of engineering and architectural firms working in San Antonio, Tex., turned the political coal of a stadium everyone wanted to build (but...

Reliability-Based Design of Transmission Towers Under Wind and Ice Loadings
This study suggests a practical but rational approach for the development of reliability-based LRFD criteria for transmission towers under wind and ice loadings in Korea. Based on available...

Double Diamonds: New Brand for a Texas Bridge
Double diamond towers, distinctive as a cattle brand but tall as a 44 story building, have reached landmark status on the Texas Gulf Coast even though the bridge they will carry won't...

Three-Dimensional Thermal Jump in Stratified Cooling Channel
This study is concerned with basic properties of three-dimensional thermal jumps. Temperature measurements obtained in three-dimensional thermal jumps are presented. The jumps analyzed...

Predicting Tower Guy Pretension Using a Neural Network

Recycling Wastewater by Drip Irrigation
Hawaii's sugar factories produce about 380 million liters of wastewater per day from sugarcane washing, condensation, and cooling operations. Since 1972, wastewater has been used to irrigate...
