Application of Artificial Neural Networks for Ungauged Catchments Flood Prediction
The prediction of floods with acceptable accuracy is the most important step in designing flood control structures and operating flood damage mitigation projects. It is more difficult...

Going Against the Grain
Conventional wisdom has it that granular soils perform better in mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall systems. Their properties are well known and simple to express in mathematical...

ASCE President's Column: Thanks for Seizing the Moment

Raising the Bar of BART
Although it was originally designed to withstand a strong earthquake, and did so admirably in 1989, the Bay Area Transit (BART) system was recently evaluated to determine its ability to...
