How to Develop Further as a Team
Once they understand that things can be different, many teams and leaders decide they'd like to see what's involved in developing further as a team. The drive...

Avoiding Overload
Working for yourself can bring a rewarding sense of independence, but it can also be hectic as you try to be all things to all people. Engineers who start their own companies often find...

Modelling of Randomly Meandering Fatigue Crack Growth

Optimization Studies of Anaerobic Expanded Bed Reactor Pretreatment of Domestic Wastewater
In recent years the advent of the anaerobic expanded bed reactor (AEBR) has made possible the treatment of wastewaters of comparatively lower strength than have traditionally been treated...

Critique of Commercial Structures

Ductility Analysis of Overload and Settlement
The concept of sufficient ductility to avoid premature or brittle failures is gaining wide acceptance in structural engineering and is an important aspect in mitigating the consequences...

Engineering Sustainable Development
Despite some isolated environmental victories in the past few decades, on a system-wide level the problems—from acid rain to destruction of the rain forest—are getting worse. Can humanity...

Stochastic Modeling of Fatigue Crack Growth with Retardation
This paper develops a new methodology for modeling fatigue crack growth accounting for both material inhomogeneity and the random nature of the loading process by modeling the crack growth...

The Value of Lateral and Creative Thinking in Water Resources Problem Solving
Throughout the history, always the highest awards have been given to creative ideas. Today, however the velocity of change and the complexity of events makes it almost impossible to spend...

Diffusion Models of Crack Growth Due to Random Overloads
Stochastic diffusion models of crack growth are developed, reflecting uncertainty in applied loading and residual stresses near the crack tip. Applications are shown to (1) random vibration...

Sewer Rehabilitation—Metro Chicago
After a number of public hearings in the late 1960's and early 1970's which focused on sewer backup problems in the Sanitary District's separate...

Large Scale ABF Mode Proves to be an Innovative Alternative for the City of Memphis
The article describes a modification carried out to overcome overloading of wastewater treatment plant at Memphis. The plant was originally constructed as a contact stabilization activated...

Role of Air in Improving First-Stage RBC Performance
A four-stage RBC (rotating biological contactor) treatment plant having two parallel trains is used to treat combined municipal and industrial dairy waste from a city with a population...
