Street Smarts
Sensors, cameras, and other technologies are helping cities monitor and manage their streets better. Data from such "smart streets" are enabling engineers and other transportation experts to improve safety...

Design Details
In all projects, the interconnectivity of each component is important. A movable bridge is an especially complicated structure that is exposed to an array of dynamic movements and transient loading conditions...

Low-Gravity Experiments: Shear Testing Takes a Nose Dive
A major challenge to making celestial soil mechanics viable is to re-engineer the profession's toolkit to provide geotechnical solutions without the luxury of ex-situ and in-situ testing as we know them...

Calibration of Jackup Leg Foundation Model Using Full-Scale Structural Measurements
The fitness of jack-up rigs to operate in varying water depths and weather conditions is determined by "site-specific" structural assessments. These assessments are conducted by a wide range of companies...

Heave Compensated Landing System - A Novel Tool for Subsea Intervention
This paper presents a new intervention system that allows the use of a low cost workboat to deploy and recover delicate payloads in subsea installations. Vessel motions are decoupled from the subsea package...

Detailed Site Investigations
This section addresses site investigation issues that are important for detailed design and construction of microtunneling projects. These site investigations include the following: Geotechnical...

Ground Feature Monitoring Using Satellite Imagery: How Interferometric Stacking of SAR Can Mitigate Geo-Disasters Along Transportation Corridors
Landslides, debris flows, and other types of ground movements are among the most common hazards to humans and infrastructure. According to the United States Geological Survey, annual domestic...

Dynamic Shearing Properties Of Compacted Clay
A series of 116 Q-type triaxial compression tests was performed using specimens of Goose Lake clay compacted at water contents ranging from 9 percent dry of optimum to 3 percent on the...

Mechanisms Controlling the Permeability of Clays
Coefficients of permeability, calculated using Terzaghi's theory of one-dimensional consolidation, are reported for smectite, illite, and kaolinite, in water, methyl and ethyl...

Radial Flow Consolidation Testing
A radial flow consolidation cell that can be used with commercially available loading frames was developed and a series of tests were performed on samples of sedimented kaolin. Simple...

Pile-Driving Formulas for Friction Piles in Sand
Dynamic pile-driving formulas are widely used in predicting the load-carrying capacity of friction piles and in writing pile-driving specifications. Further, when load tests are available,...

Design and Installation of Auger Steel Catenary Risers
The Auger export pipelines are connected to the TLP by steel catenary risers (SCRs). This is believed to be the first time steel pipe has been used for catenary risers. SCRs offer advantages...

Geo-Shanghai 2014
Proceedings of the Geo-Shanghai 2014 International Conference, held in Shanghai, China, May 26-28, 2014. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE. These...
