The Design of Hail Suppression Operations
When hail suppression operations are being considered, it is already understood that hail damage is a significant problem in an area in which the political subdivision, organization, or...

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...

Behaviour of Open-Ended Pipe Piles in Sand During Installation and Loading
An experimental study was performed to investigate the physical processes which influence the axial load capacities of open-ended steel pipe piles in sand. A double-walled pipe pile was...

Axial Capacity of Steel Pipe Piles in Clay
Development of theories for the prediction of the axial compressive and tensile load capacities of driven piles is made difficult by a variety of factors, e.g., disturbance of the soil...

Application of Model Pile Tests to Axial Pile Design
Experiments conducted with instrumented model pile segment probes at Harvey and Empire, Louisiana are summarized and the observed behavior interpreted. Correlations are developed for the...

Sustainable Development — A Geotechnical Perspective
Sustainability has become a key factor in major construction projects these days, and many geotechnical engineers have started focusing on the concept. Owners, public agencies, and the...

Reliability and Resilience — Essential Ingredients of Sustainable Geotechnics
Sustainability of a system is its ability to survive and retain its functionality over time. In very simple terms, sustainability deals with the capacities (resistances) and demands (loads)...

Enhanced Detection and Mapping of Buried Utilities—A Sustainability Perspective
The social and environmental impacts and benefits of projects make up the triple bottom line that represents a modern view of sustainable project development. Rather than considering only...
