The Optimal Selection of Robot Modules for Space Manipulators
Monolithic robot systems are poorly suited to the broad requirements and uncertainties of space automation applications. Designers have considered building many robots, each of which can...

Criteria for Acceptable Wind-Induced Motions
This paper discusses criteria for evaluating acceptable wind-induced building motions. The paper draws on the results of moving room experiments and the performance of actual buildings...

Validation of a Continental-Scale Storm Surge Model for the Coast of Delaware
Coastal structures are designed to provide protection against various forces of nature acting in the coastal zone. Structures such as seawalls are expected to provide onshore protection...

New Program for the Marine Observation and Prediction Center of the Central Weather Bureau
With the increase of economic activities on the oceans and seas, the observation of marine phenomena and forecast services become more and more significant. The Central Weather Bureau...

Design Waves and Wave Spectra for Engineering Applications
Thirteen years of hourly wave data measured at two of the National Data Buoy Center's (NDBC) buoy stations, one located in the northeastern Pacific and the other located in the northwestern...

TIGER and Census Bureau Data in a GIS: A Powerful Combination for Civil Engineers
TIGER is the acronym the Census Bureau crated to identify its computerized geographic support system: the Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing System. Although...

3-D Coordinates - A Universal Rectangular Coordinate System for a GIS and Other Spatial Databases
Rules of solid geometry and 3-dimensional (3-D) rectangular coordinate systems are well known and used in many applications. Points on or near the earth's surface have long been described...

Application of a Geographic Information System to Evaluate Environmental Hazards
The development of a Geographic Information System (GIS) application to evaluate potential environmental hazards within the Bushkill watershed in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, is described...

An International Knowledge Database for Ground Improvement Geo-Systems
Ground improvement technologies have traditionally played an integral and important role in major geotechnical construction projects throughout the history of civil engineering and selection...

CAD-Based Intelligent Drawings: An Automated Quality Control Approach to Land Development
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is currently used within every discipline of civil engineering. Initially, CAD was employed solely as a drawing/drafting tool. Current CAD packages, in conjunction...

Design and Implementation of a Database for Seismic Evaluation of Structures
The seismic evaluation of large structures, such as bridges, requires a comprehensive framework for managing the data. An evaluation typically involves the dynamic analysis of a number...

Deductive Databases in Engineering
Many engineering systems can be modeled in terms of objects and relationships among objects. As generalized relational databases, deductive databases provide a suitable tool for representing...

Towards Practical Machine Learning Techniques
Most research on the application of machine learning to engineering problems have solved artificial problems. While research claimed to have reached results that would improve practice,...

Intelligent Construction Planning
The intelligent construction planning is a stage of automated building realization process. The building is defined in the design stage by its spaces and functional systems. The automated...

Flexible Extracation of Practical Knowledge from Bridge Databases
Bridge databases contain significant information that can assist in future bridge management decisions. The effective utilization of this information requires facilities for the flexible...

A Knowledge-Intensive Database System for Making Effective Use of Construction Lessons Learned
