Nonlinear Trial Load Method of Arch Dams
The trial load method is still an important method for the stress analysis of arch dams at present. However, the trial load method can be used only for the linear elastic analysis of arch...

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...

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...

Study of Redundancy in Near-Ideal Parallel Structural Systems
In this paper the reliability of parallel structural systems is studied in order to begin to understand and quantify the system factors influencing the overload capacity and the redundancy...

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...

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...
