As in many current AI (Artificial Intelligence) systems, knowledge processing is the most important issue in expert systems. 'Knowledge' in engineering applications...

Dynamic Response Correlation Using Simplified Models
A simplified model for building response which has a W. Ramberg-W. R. Osgood hysteresis is developed in a discrete sense. It is then used to evaluate the response of an instrumented, bearing...

Pressuremeter Correlations for Preconsolidated Clay
Conventional triaxial compression and consolidation tests are often utilized to obtain parameters for design of foundations. More recently, Menard pressuremeter test results have been...

Electrical In Situ Measurements for Predicting Behavior of Soils
A new method is presented for predicting the in situ stress-strain behavior of fine grained soils based upon in situ measurements of its electrical properties. The method involves the...

Probabilistic Study of SPT Liquefaction Analysis
The influence of earthquake magnitude upon the commonly used correlation between Standard Penetration Test (SPT) blow count and liquefaction potential is evaluated using a probabilistic...

Correlation of Soil Parameters From In Situ and Laboratory Tests for Building 333
Pressuremeter, plate bearing and cone penetration tests were performed on the prepared foundation soil for Building 333 located in the Red River Army Depot near Texarkana, TX. The results...

Hale Cycle and Indian Drought and Flood Area Indices
The Indian Drought (DAI) and flood (FAI) area indices have been argued to be related to the hale cycle of sunspot number by H. N. Bhalme and D. A. Mooley. They studied the dependence between...

Statistical Analysis of Tellico Dam Piezometer Data
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the use of statistical and computer processing methods as a tool for analyzing dam safety piezometric monitoring data. Statistical methods are...

Wind Speed-Damage Correlation in Hurricane Alicia

Soil Strength Determinations from the Cone Penetrometer Test
Geotechnical exploration in offshore Arctic regions often relies upon the electric Cone Penetrometer Test (CPT) because of its speed, economy, data continuity, and general reliability....

The Role of Multiple Level Hydrologic Analysis in Watershed Management—A Case Study in Trinidad
An accurate estimation of peak flood flows and its correlation with existing and future land use are basic requirements for the scientific management of Watersheds. An accurate estimation...

Dynamic Response Correlation of Cylindrical Tanks
The May 1983 Coalinga Earthquake provided an opportunity to correlate earthquake performance of cylindrical liquid storage tanks with behavior observed in laboratory shaking table experiments....

On Estimating Autocovariance of Soil Properties

Ground Motion of Mississippi Valley Earthquakes
Three methods are used to estimate the dependence of strong ground motion on epicentral distance and magnitude for Mississippi Valley earthquakes. The first utilizes earthquake intensity...

A Study of the Correlation of the Components of Instructure Motions During Earthquakes
Thirty-two buildings are selected that have all three components of motion recorded in the basement, midheight and top of the structure. The correlation coefficients of these motions,...

A Correlation Study on the Spectrum Decomposition Method
The major elements of the Spectrum Decomposition Method (SDM) are reviewed together with its automated process for generation of in-equipment response spectra (IERS). The floor required...
