Inspecting the Unknown (Available in Geo-Environmental Special Issue Only)
Unknown foundations have plagued civil engineers for years. In the case of underwater pilings, much time and money is spent inspecting for cracks, breaks or deterioration. Even then, visibility...

The Deep (Available in Geo-Environmental Special Issue only)
Despite a mere 1,500 ft separation, Baltimore's Oriole Park at Camden Yards and Ravens Stadium required vastly different deep foundation solutions. While Oriole Park is founded...

Rebuilding History
Deterioration of the second-oldest multiple-arch masonry viaduct in the country—in Canton, Mass.—threatened its ability to continue carrying Amtrak's Northeast Corridor trains,...

Geosynthetics in Foundation Reinforcement and Erosion Control Systems
