Earthquake Resistant Design and Construction of Reinforced Concrete Buildings. The Practice in Mexico After 1985
The evolution of the design and construction practice of reinforced concrete buildings in Mexico is presented in terms of materials, structural systems, member design and reinforcement...

Techniques for Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings in Mexico City
The 1985 earthquake in Mexico City caused collapse or damage of a large number of engineered buildings. After this event several hundreds of buildings were retrofitted using several techniques....

GIS Mapping of Earthquake Ground Shaking in San Francisco, California
Severe earthquakes of the last decade in Mexico, Armenia, and the United States have reemphasized the importance of local geologic site conditions in estimating damage and consequent losses....

Passive Energy Dissipation Systems for Earthquake-Resistant Design
Passive energy dissipation devices, also known as supplemental damping devices, have been proposed as a means by which the earthquake resistance of a building can be substantially enhanced,...

Modeling Gas and Brine Migration for Assessing Compliance of the WIPP
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is developing the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in southeastern New Mexico as a facility for the long-term disposal of defense-related transuranic...

Heat and Vapor Transport Beneath an Impermeable Cap
Vadose-zone moisture transport near an impermeable barrier has been under study at a field site near Albuquerque, NM since 1990. Moisture content and temperature have been monitored in...

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) Integrated Project Management System
The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), located 26 miles east of Carlsbad, New Mexico, is a research and development project of the Department of Energy (DOE), tasked with the mission...

Stochastic Modelling of Groundwater Flow at the WIPP Site
A stochastic approach to modelling the groundwater flow in the vicinity of the WIPP site in New Mexico is described. A geostatistical model of the transmissivity of the Culebra dolomite...

Natural, Cultural, & Environmental Resource Values Influencing Colorado River Basin Management
The Colorado River Basin supplies water to the seven western states of Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and California, and to Mexico. Originally the Colorado River...

Infrastructure Planning for Private Sector Investment
To minimize the use of public resources for infrastructure development, major works are being initiated in Latin America with studies designed to attract capital investment from the private...

Nekton Use of Salt Marshes of the Southeast Region of the United States
Published studies of nekton in salt marshes of the Southeast Region of the U.S. were reviewed to identify fish and decapod crustaceans associated with marsh-surface habitats, to describe...

Watershed Effects on the Value of Marshes to Fisheries
Watershed size and rainfall patterns are among the factors that influence the extent to which fishery species use estuarine marshes as nurseries. We examined three Texas bays with different...

Priority Problems of the Barataria-Terrebonne Estuarine Complex
The Barataria-Terrebonne Estuarine Complex encompasses an area of approximately 3600 square miles within the Mississippi deltaic plain, and consists of system of water bodies and wetlands...

Contaminant Trends in the Southern California Bight: The Coast is Cleaner
Data from local, regional and federal coastal monitoring programs were used to assess long-term trends and spatial extent of chemical contamination in sediments, shellfish, and fish of...
