Modeling the Dynamic Nonlinear Response of Single Piles

Scour around Exposed Pile Foundations
Laboratory experiments were conducted to measure local scour around exposed pile groups for a variety of conditions including different spacings, different skew angles, different patterns...

Scour Protection in Bottomless Culverts
This paper will describe the relative severity of scour anticipated to occur at bottomless culverts and will provide some design guidance for scour protection based on research referenced...

Chicago's Micropile Debut
On a tight, urban site around Chicago's historic Orchestra Hall, engineers used high-capacity micropiles as an alternative to hand-dug caissons. On a $104 million project...

Cold Regions Engineering
The Cold Regions Infrastructure—An International Imperative for the 21st Century
This volume includes papers presented at the Eighth International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering—The Cold Regions Infrastructure: An International Imperative for the 21st Century....

Soft Ground Improvement in Lowland and Other Environments
The presence of thick deposits of soft clay combined with the effects of ground subsidence cause problems for engineering constructions for lowland areas such as the Central Plain (Chao...

Marine Borers Are Back
Cleaning up the nation's harbors has brought a resurgence in marine borer activity. These organisms, mainly the teredo and the limnoria, eat at timber piers, undermining critical...
