Achieving Success and Avoiding Failures with Permeable Pavements
This chapter provides experienced-based recommendations on how to achieve success with permeable pavements. This information is based on an informational survey completed by designers,...

Maintenance
While site selection and proper construction are the most critical factors in establishing that permeable pavements function as designed, all must be inspected and maintained to maximize...

Hydrologic and Hydraulic Design Methods
Computational methods for hydrologic analysis, hydraulic functions, and treatment capacity of permeable pavements vary depending on the complexity of the design and level of detail in...

Permeable Pavement Research Needs
The implementation of permeable pavement installations and practices are expanding and becoming more commonplace. With this increased usage comes expanded and improved information on design,...

Switched Sites Made Design of 'Green Infrastructure' College Building More Challenging

On the heels of its design for a radical sports and leisure venue on the edge of Las Vegas, the Los Angeles-based architecture firm M-Rad has designed a unique tower for downtown Las Vegas that is meant to integrate working and living spaces in circular fashion...

Design of Connections
Bolted connections for transmission structures are normally designed as bearing type connections. It is assumed that bolts connecting one member to another carry the load in the connection...

Structural Members and Connections Used in Foundations
This chapter specifies design procedures for steel members and connections embedded in concrete foundations or the earth. Additional design requirements for structural members and connections...

Scope
This standard guideline covers planning, design, pipe materials, and construction of microtunneling. The term microtunneling is defined as a trenchless construction method for installing...

Contract Documents
As with any civil works project, the bid and contract documents prepared by the owner and the engineer should provide the contractor with the necessary information to prepare bids, to...

Pipe Characteristics
Microtunneling pipe should meet the following general requirements: Circular shape with a flush outside surface (including at the joints); Strength sufficient to withstand both the installation...

Construction Support Services
A preconstruction survey of existing structures within the anticipated construction zone of influence should be conducted before any construction begins. A plan for structures that need...

Measurement and Payment
The owner shall establish a bid schedule to obtain pricing for all work associated with the microtunneling installation. This bid schedule provides the bidders the opportunity to establish...

As I See It: Enhancing Geotechnical Practice in Support of Performance-Based Design at Ports

Innovative Use of a Groin Structure: Saving Cost, Shortening the Schedule, and Minimizing Impacts
Almost any type of construction activity can pose a shock to the surrounding environment and habitat. Obviously, the extent of the impact will depend on the location of the project and...

Notes on Heavy Lift Design
The interrelated activities and responsibilities of the various organizations involved in the lift design and offshore installation of topside facilities for an offshore platform are discussed....

Findings From a Joint Industry Study on Foundation Fixity of Jackup Units
During the design storm conditions the soil supporting jack-up unit footings may be close to, or at plastic failure. Accordingly, the use of elastic solutions to the problems of foundation...

Extreme Wave-Force Calculation Procedure for 20th Edition of API RP-2A
The paper describes the revised guideline design wave force calculation procedure approved for the 20th edition of the API-RP2A WSD and the first edition of the API-RP2A LRFD and contrasts...

A Simple Model to Predict Soil Resistance to Driving for Long Piles in Deepwater Normally Consolidated Clays
As the exploration and development for offshore oil and gas reserves moves into the deepwater environment of the continental slope, a good model is necessary to evaluate drivability of...
