Blast Wall Bravura
Since the 1988 disaster on the Piper Alpha platform in the North Sea, which claimed 165 lives, legislation in the United Kingdom has required the operators of offshore installations to...

Soil Treatment Using Photolytic Solvent Recycle

A Marine Railway and Transfer System for the UNDEX Test Facility

Prelude to a Demolition
Building demolition conjures up images of explosives detonating or a wrecking ball haphazardly slamming into the side of a structure until it's reduced to a pile of rubble....

New Insights into Explosive Compaction of Loose, Saturated, Cohesionless Soils

Oklahoma City Aftermath
The explosion that ripped through the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City shortly after nine a.m. on April 19 killed 168 people, injured more than 500 and damaged more than...

A Discussion of Nuclear Propulsion in Space Travel
Nuclear thermal propulsion (NTP) is gaining popularity as a safe alternative to conventional propulsion. Such alternatives are desirable to meet the goals of lunar colonization and manned...

Safety Assessment of a Chemical Reactor Vessel
The potential explosion loadings on a chemical reactor vessel is described in this paper. The potential loads presented provide a basis for designing spherical storage vessels which will...

Engineers and Contractors Go Global
The telecommunication explosion and the rise of free-trade agreements are pushing consulting engineers and construction companies toward globalization, a trend seen in past decades among...

Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) and Dredging

Civilian Structures: Taking the Defensive
The 1992 terrorist bombing of the World Trade Center in New York posed a challenging question to the engineering community: Can we design cost-effective structural systems for public and...

Estimation of Near-Regional Seismic Ground Motion from Underground Nuclear Explosion Tests
A problem unique to the location of a nuclear waste repository adjacent to the Nevada Test Site is the assessment of seismic ground motion from potential underground nuclear explosion...

Crisis Management Training at Nuclear Facilities: Simulations in Bomb Threats
Substantial enhancements to the study of the theoretical and applied foundations of crisis management have been achieved in recent years. Whereas risk managers study 'the probability that...
