Intelligent Excavator Control for a Lunar Mining System
The benefits of utilizing local planetary resources are a large reduction in the cost of lifting materials from the earth's surface into earth orbit. Since the moon is one of the closest...

Methodology for Comparing Lunar Settlement Designs
This paper examines a methodology used to compare divergent lunar settlement proposals. It is suggested that the methodology be added to other selection tools for determining which is...

WAK and Full-Scale Load Tests on Granular Fill
For footings on granular fill that includes cobble- and boulder-size materials, in situ tests cannot be used to estimate foundation settlement because such fill is difficult to explore...

Settlement of a 15-Meter Deep Fill Below a Building
The site for a building in western Pennsylvania was undermined, with the mine base about 15 m below planned final grade. Rock above the mine was highly fractured and of poor quality, indicating...
