Modeling of Inelastic Behavior of RC Structures under Seismic Loads
Proceedings of the U.S.–Japan Seminar on Post-Peak Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Structures Subjected to Seismic Loads: Recent Advances and Challenges on Analysis and Design, held in...

Symptom-Based Reliability of Aging Infrastructure Systems
Ideally, aging infrastructure systems should be monitored for safety and repaired in case of need. Eventually, authors believe that symptom-based reliability will be useful for safety...

Maintenance of Diaphragm-Girder Connections
Fatigue cracking at diaphragm-girder connections and at similar connections of cross-frames and floorbeams have been common in steel highway bridges for the past 20 or 30 years. Fatigue...

High Performance Dampers for Bridges
A multi-disciplinary research study investigates the use of shape memory alloys as seismic dampers in bridges. Shape memory alloys are a class of alloys that display several unique characteristics,...

Evolution of Composite Floor Systems in the United States
Composite floor systems, which combine structural steel beams with a cast-in-place concrete slab, have grown in popularity in the U.S. during the past 40 years. In most early applications,...

Under the Microscope
Forensic engineering is typically more complex than engineering design because it requires the integration of specialized knowledge of materials science, structural analysis and design,...

Concrete Delivers
The latest addition to the skyline of Shanghai, China, is a strikingly slender all-concrete 62-story office tower. It is the city's tallest all-concrete building, achieving...

Composites Enhance Timber Bridges
Two relatively new technologies are available for reinforcing or strengthening timber bridges with fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs). The first consists in reinforcing the tension side...

Dual Benefits
When the Port of Houston needed to be dredged to accommodate larger commercial vessels, engineers decided to put the dredged material to use to create wetlands and islands that will serve...

Liner Lessons
The County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County comprise 25 independent special districts that cover a service area of approximately 770 sq mi (1,990 km²). Since the early 1990s...

Bridge to the Future
An arched footbridge under construction in Seoul, South Korea, that is reconnecting the metropolis with a tranquil island, will demonstrate the compressive strength and sleek design potential...

Megaproject Management
By the dredging and landfill project manager for the Port of Los Angeles and Alan E. Alcorn, P.E., an associate vice president of Moffat and Nichol Engineers in Los Angeles. The Pier 400...

New Navigation Channel
Among the facilities needed to accommodate Pier 400 at the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) was a new navigation channel to handle the increased container and liquid bulk traffic that the port...
