Cumulative Impact of Heavy Permit-Trucks on Steel Bridges
In many parts of North America, special permits are issued to heavy vehicles without considering their cumulative effect on steel bridge components. Such overloads may initiate crack propagation...

Site Effects on Strong Shaking and Seismic Risk: Recent Developments and Their Impact on Seismic Design Codes and Practice
The very strong influence of localized poor or 'adverse' geological/geotechnical foundation conditions on patterns and concentrations of damage during a number of recent earthquakes (e.g.:...

Simulated Circulation and Transport in Adjacent Wind-Driven Estuaries in North Carolina
The Pamlico and Neuse River estuaries, in North Carolina, display similar physical characteristics because of their proximity and physiographic setting. Yet, because of channel configuration...

A Comparative Analysis of Estuarine Circulation Simulation Using Laterally Averaged and Vertically Averaged Hydrodynamic Models
Multidimensional models are routinely used to characterize hydrodynamic and transport processes in estuarine and coastal ocean systems. Due to a variety of factors, the choice between...

Joint Probability of Superelevated Water Levels and Wave Heights at Duck, North Carolina
Storm events are typically classified as a percent occurrence or return interval based on their peak storm elevation. The stage is the combination of storm surge, astronomical tide and...

Late Holocene Climate Derived From Vegetation History and Plant Cellulose Stable Isotope Records From the Great Basin of Western North America

Analysis of the Juturnaiba Embankment Dam Built on an Organic Soft Clay
The Juturnaiba Dam, located in the northern part of Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, has 1.2 km of its length built on an organic soft clay about four meters deep. The construction of the...

A Procedure for Predicting Seismic Deformation of Earth Structures
This paper presents an analysis procedure for predicting the earthquake induced displacements of earth structures. The procedure is an extension of the simple Newmark method from a single-degree-of-freedom...

Building Performance Founded on an Improved Sand in Recife, Brazil
Studies performed on a fourteen-storey building founded on an improved sand are presented. These studies included soil profile characterization, the choice of foundation type, the ground...

Two Case Studies of Marine Parks & Marinas as Economic and Tourism Activity Stimulators in Brazil

Factors Affecting Accuracy of Slope-Area Discharge Determination of the September 1992 Flood in Raven Fork, Western North Carolina
For the flood of September 10, 1992, in Raven Fork, Swain County, North Carolina, a peak discharge of 460 cubic meters per second was computed by using the slope-area method. Accuracy...

Salinity and Dissolved-Oxygen Dynamics in a Wind-Driven Estuary
Water levels, near-surface and near-bottom salinities, and near-surface and near-bottom dissolved-oxygen concentrations were measured continuously in the Pamlico River estuary, North Carolina,...

Tide- and Stormdriven Sediment Transport on the Inner-Shelf Along the Dutch Coast

Study for Deepening of the Martin Garcia Channels at Rio de la Plata, Uruguay

Argentina outlook

Argentina: Back in Business
Having achieved democracy and stabilized its economy, Argentina is working to improve its transport, telephone and power systems and to ease its housing shortage; the local construction...
