Poison Oak, Mistakes, and Lessons
When things go wrong in geotechnicalengineering — like ground movements andearthwork construction delays — failureinvestigations are often performed. In a typical geotechnical project, the path is relatively...

High Explosive Simulation of Earthquake-Like Ground Motions

A Fault-Rupture Propagation Model for Ground Motion Simulation

On the Slow Motions of Tankers Moored to Single Point Mooring Systems

Response of Tension Piles to Simulated Seismic Motion in Saturated Fine Sand

Frozen Ground Engineering
This new edition gives a peerless presentation of soil mechanics for frozen ground conditions and a variety of frozen ground support systems used on construction project worldwide. An...

Design and Construction of the Pier J Breakwaters at the Port of Long Beach, California
Several different alternatives to mitigate surge activity were investigated. The most acceptable solution was a pair of new breakwaters that altered the basin geometry to change the basin...

Foundations and Ground Improvement in the Urban Environment

A DSM Wall for Excavation Support

New Parameters to Model Ground Motions
The paper presents three new parameters to characterize earthquake-induced ground motions. All three parameters evolve from the concept of response spectra, and are termed 3D response...

Fragility Curves and Seismic Loss Estimation Methodologies Based on Insurance Data
Loss data for single family dwellings from the 1994 Northridge, California, earthquake were correlated with ground motion with the aim of determining ground motion-based fragility curves....

Application of Water Column Dampers to Control Motions of the Wall Centre, Vancouver
The Wall Centre, a 450 foot tall high-rise tower currently under construction in downtown Vancouver will be the highest building to be constructed in that city. Wind tunnel testing indicated...

Design of Structure and Damping System to Control Motions of the Park Tower, Chicago
Park Tower, a 67 story condominium/hotel project currently under construction on the Magnificent Mile, Chicago, IL, will be the first building in North America in recent times that utilizes...

The Gaspé Current and Cyclonic Motion over the Northwestern Gulf of St. Lawrence

Towers in Motion (available in Structural Engineering Special Section only)
Undersea towers are typically designed to rigidly resist the forces of water and wind. But one type of tower is designed to be flexible and, rather than rely on its platform strength to...
