Reinforced Granular Soil for Track Support

Tripod Crane Concept for Lunar Surface Construction
A construction scheme using three integrated cranes is proposed. Mikulas proposed a lunar crane concept which introduces a set of three cables in order to stabilize the payload. This paper...

Cables and Cranes for a Flexible Lunar Transportation System
This paper will discuss the results of preliminary research on a cable-based transportation system for the moon. The paper will address the principles of cableway design and will present...

Analysis of Space Crane Articulated-Truss Joints
Three articulated-truss joint concepts for the space crane are studied to evaluate their static structural performance over a range of geometric design parameters. Emphasis is placed on...

Uses for Lunar Crawler Transporters
This article discusses state-of-the-art crawler transporters and expresses the need for additional research and development for lunar crawlers. The thrust of the paper illustrates how...

Cranes, Concrete, Construction...and Computers
Computers are already firmly entrenched in the design process. Now, they're touching all corners of construction. Applications range from traditional project management tasks...

Deep Water Container Wharf & Crane Foundation
A deep water anchored steel bulkhead and a parallel-independent low-profile, pile supported crane rail foundation with special stowage areas are discussed from soils investigation, through...

Crane Rebuilding vs. New Purchase
The dimensional and operational features of a container crane which are deemed desirable, if not necessary, in a modern port terminal are discussed and quantified. Some reasons why a crane...

Crane Raise with Zero Downtime
Massachusetts Fort Authority (MPA) was faced with a dilemma. Its Conley Terminal tenants needed higher cranes but could not relinquish the cranes for more than a few days at a time. No...

Modern Crane Control Enhancements
Terminal operators are continually looking for innovative ways to enhance the productivity and safety of their container cranes. This paper discusses examples of control enhancements that...

Upgrading Today's Terminals for Tomorrow's Needs
This paper describes how a 1940's vintage, timber pile supported wharf is being modernized to serve post-Panamax ships: how the Massachusetts Port Authority (MASSPORT) is rebuilding their...

Uncertainty Analysis of Preclosure Accident Doses for the Yucca Mountain Repository
This study presents a generic methodology that can be used to evaluate the uncertainty in the calculated accidental offsite doses at the Yucca Mountain repository during the preclosure...

Dewatering Using a Floating Bulkhead Proves Flexible, Reusable and Cost Effective
Going beyond a traditional bulkhead dropped in place with a barge crane or crane hoist, a steel floating bulkhead was conceived to dewater powerplant intakes, gated spillway bays or outlet...

Dry Stack Operations
The design and operation of dry stack boat storage systems have undergone a significant evolution during the past two decades. Now, in the decade of the nineties, these systems are becoming...

Cranes Roost Lake Level Management Project
An internally drained water body has historically experienced a wide range of lake level elevations due to its function as a regional aquifer recharge area, and due to the urbanized nature...
