Performance Limits for Deepwater Pipelines
This paper highlights the differences between onshore and offshore pipeline design. It then summarizes the results of combined external pressure, tension, and bending testing on full scale...

Failure of a Twenty-Foot High Retaining Wall
A cantilever retaining wall, designed in apparent accord with provisions in a civil engineering handbook, failed soon after construction. Analyses of the causes of the failure are presented....

Advanced Fracture Control Procedures for Deepwater Platforms and Compliant Towers
This paper describes an integrated approach to fracture control problems – applied first as a necessary adjunct to the authors' own engineering practice, then in developing...

Offshore Platform Steel Specification
The discovery in the 1980's of local brittle zones (LBZ's) in and near the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of the fabrication welds in certain offshore platform steels...

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...

Managing Geotechnical Assets to Improve Highway System Performance
As geoprofessionals, we have a great opportunity to look at our work in new ways and to show its value to others. Highway agencies are looking to get the most from their assets and with...

Asset Management of Earth Retaining Structures: Design through Design Life
Regarding new earth retaining structures (ERS) construction, the message is clear: plan for asset management. New construction is certainly not immune to performance issues, and the time...

Risk-based Methods for Geotechnical Features in Transportation Asset Management
The purpose of asset management is to meet life cycle performance goals through the management of assets in the most cost-effective manner. In developing risk-based, asset management plans...

So, Why Do You Want to Write a GBR?
Since 1974, scores of papers, articles, conferences, and legal documents have been dedicated to explaining how to write and/or how to use a Geotechnical Baseline Report (GBR). But the...
