Observations on Low-Speed Aeroelasticity
A brief history of developments in the field of low-speed aeroelasticity is provided in the context of application to long-span bridge structures. The paper begins with summary of some...

Forensics and Case Studies in Civil Engineering Education: State of the Art
This paper reviews the state of the art in the use of forensic engineering and failure case studies in civil engineering education. The study of engineering failures can offer students...

Rate of Under-Registration Due to Failures of Large Meters
Leaks and meter under registrations are suspected as primary components of unaccounted-for water in Korea. In 2001, national unaccounted-for-water rate is reported as 26.6%. More than...

Failures and Problems with Lift-Slab Construction
This chapter provides an overview of failures and problems with lift-slab construction. Topics include jack systems with inadequate take-up devices; the Canadian wedge connection; Serra...

Progressive Collapse
This chapter examines progressive collapse. Topics include current practice and integrity steel for loss of support of a lifting collar....

Deep Freeze
In engineering, overcoming a failure can sometimes be more instructive than completing a project with unqualified success. Such was the case with the collapse and repair of a force main...

Countering Chemical and Biological Terrorism
Prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11, building protection related to terrorism primarily focused on the threat of bombs detonated inside vechicles. However the September 2001...
