Compressive Deterioration of Cracked Concrete
When shear behavior of reinforced concrete (R/C) members is to be simulated, the compressive strength and the stiffness reduction of cracked concrete must be taken into consideration....

Probabilistic Approaches to Maintenance
All structures and their components are subject to the aging process, to wear and tear in the performance of assigned functions and to deterioration by exposure to the operating environment....

Sidescan Sonar Examination of Deteriorated Revetments and Bulkheads Along Chicago's Lake Front

Milltown Powerhouse Rehabilitation
The Milltown Powerhouse and dam are over 80 years old. The powerhouse and other structures were built in 1906 and are owned by the Montana Power Company. The plant is located on the Clark...

Concrete Repairs: Are We Ready to Design Them?

Concrete Bridge Deck Condition Assessment: Traditional and Innovative Inspection Technologies

Practical Aspects of Repairing and Rewinding Hydro-Electric Generators
Often the general condition of the winding can be assessed and in some cases, corrective action can be taken to prolong the life of the winding. In other situations, the assessment may...

Impact of Design/Construction/Maintenance Practices on Structural Deterioration

Effects of Redundancy Deterioration on the Reliability of Truss Systems and Bridges

Effects of Deterioration on Safety and Reliability of Structures
Deterioration of structural and non-structural elements in commercial, industrial and residential constructions is of general concern to investors, design engineers, architects, contractors...

A New Methodology for Modelling Water Pipe Breaks
A new methodology for modelling breaks in large diameter cast-iron water pipes is proposed. The need to consider two separate stages of deterioration (early stages with fewer breaks and...

Decay in Wood Structures
One of the main causes of wood deterioration is decay. Decay causes millions of dollars in damage to timber structures each year. Left unchecked, decay deterioration can become a structural...
