Structural Fire Resistance Design of Wood Beams and Columns: A Comparison of European and North American Practices
North American and Eurocode design methods for fire-resistive exposed wood members provide a very good example of the translation of research into practical engineering design procedures....

Side Resistance of Drilled Shafts in the Denver and Pierre Formations
Results of load tests on drilled shaft foundations in Upper Cretaceous shales are described and evaluated. Three load tests were conducted on shafts in the Denver Formation, in Denver,...

Going International: Profit or Peril?
Six veterans of the international engineering and construction market discuss the financial risks of international work, including currency risk; expatriate living conditions; difficulties...

Dynamic Response Characteristics of Jack-Up Drilling Units
The effects of five parameters on the dynamic amplification of the global base shear on a deep water jack-up drilling unit were analyzed using a time domain nonlinear model. The five parameters...

Seismic Assessment of Tailings Dams
A significant portion of the operating and closed large dams in North America are tailings dams used to impound wastes from mining operations. Often these dams were built by mine personnel...

A Review of Design Criteria for High RCC Dams
The 1980s could be considered to be the decade during which roller-compacted concrete dams came of age. This economic method of construction is sufficiently proven that very large dams...

Designing Reinforced Rock
The reinforced rock arch design method has been used to stabilize coal mine excavations for 40 years, but so far has been applied to only a few tunnels. The use of rock reinforcement develops...

Dams Going Safely over the Top
Many older dams can't pass updated design floods without overtopping the embankment crest. Conventional upgrade methods, enlarging spillways or raising crests, are expensive....

Two-Dimensional Circulation Modeling of the Pamlico River Estuary, North Carolina
A two dimensional, vertically averaged, unsteady flow model was applied to a 50- kilometer reach of the Pamlico River estuary, North Carolina. The model computational grid, which consists...

Geotechnical Database Manipulation to Effect Stochastic Analysis
Existing or easily-developed databases of regional geotechnical information can be used to estimate prior probability distributions and parameters for use in stochastic analyses. Prior...

Aldicarb Transport in the Coastal Plain of N. C.
The pesticide aldicarb is extremely soluble in water which causes it to be mobile in ground water. A field study was conducted to monitor the fate of the pesticide aldicarb in a poorly...
