Findings From a Joint Industry Study on Foundation Fixity of Jackup Units
During the design storm conditions the soil supporting jack-up unit footings may be close to, or at plastic failure. Accordingly, the use of elastic solutions to the problems of foundation...

Determining the True Distributions of Load in Instrumented Piles

Non-Destructive Strength Evaluation of a Continuous, Reinforced Concrete Slab Bridge
In the state of New Mexico, a significant number of reinforced concrete slab (RCS) bridges provide service on interstate highways I-10, I-25, and I-40 that are subjected to large amounts...

Characterization of Particle Class Sizes Associated with Indicator Organisms in Stormwater
The presence of pathogen indicators is the leading cause of water body impairment in the United States, accounting for over 15% of the waters currently requiring TMDL development (USEPA,...

On the Inelastic Design of Steel I Girder Bridges
This paper documents the development of a relatively easy to use set of effective plastic moment expressions and compares the performance of these equations with a series of experimental...

Laboratory Modeling of Vibro-Driven Piles

Application of TOPNET in the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project (DMIP)
This paper describes the application of a networked version of TOPMODEL, TOPNET, as part of the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project, DMIP. The model implementation is based on a...

Comparison of Hydrodynamic Parameters for a Floating Breakwater
The U. S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center is in the process of developing a Rapidly Installed Breakwater System (RIBS) for use in Joint Logistics Over the Shore Operations...

Predicting Droughts for the South Platte River System
In this paper we apply probability theory and stochastic processes to determine drought properties, particularly drought duration. Spccilicslly, we model the sequences of wet and dry years...
