Testing the New Locks (part of "A Greater Wonder")
The recently completed third set of locks at the Panama Canal incorporates several civil components and hydraulic design features that are intended to reduce routine maintenance and conserve water. For...

Review of Climate Science for Engineering Practice
Weather and climate are a factor in civil engineering design and practice. Weather is defined as the state of the atmosphere with respect to wind, temperature, cloudiness, moisture, pressure,...

Hydrologic and Hydraulic Design Methods
Computational methods for hydrologic analysis, hydraulic functions, and treatment capacity of permeable pavements vary depending on the complexity of the design and level of detail in...

Pipe Characteristics
Microtunneling pipe should meet the following general requirements: Circular shape with a flush outside surface (including at the joints); Strength sufficient to withstand both the installation...

Pipe Design
The pipes and joints, once installed, must be capable of safely withstanding, for the project design life, all in-use service loads, including those associated with the following factors:...

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...

Estimation of Consolidation Properties of Clay from Field Observations
Analyses to obtain theoretical time-settlement curves for embankments typically make use of soil properties measured in the laboratory on small disturbed samples subject to strain rates...

Measurement of Hydraulic Conductivity of Partially Saturated Soils
Increased interest in protection of the environment has led to a need to be able to predict long-term movement of moisture, and contaminants, in the vicinity of shallow land disposal sites...

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...

Performance of Suction Caissons in Sand and Clay
The use of suction caissons (suction piles) in marine environments has been increasing in the last decade. A suction caisson is a steel pipe with an open bottom and a closed top that is...

Pore Water Pressures in Unsaturated Soils
Unsaturated soils are three-phase systems composed of solid mineral matter, water, and air. Such soils may be formed by either natural or artificial means. Except in moist environments,...

Sinkhole Investigation and Grouting: Novel Recommendations for a Pipeline Right-of-Way
In 2009, numerous sinkholes developed within and adjacent to a 400-ft-long section of high-pressure, petroleum pipeline right-of-way that crosses under a local creek in Plymouth Meeting,...
