Bridge Appearance
Four Australia-wide surveys supply data on public opinion of the appearance of bridges. Duplicate surveys carried out in 1971 and 1978 show consistent results for nine Australian bridges....

Remote Sensing in Archaeological Sampling Designs
The recent explosion of archaeological research, necessitated by Federal legislation and carried out in conjunction with large construction projects, has produced serious problems for...

Monitoring Aquatic Plants in Reservoirs
Noxious aquatic plants in reservoirs and in irrigation canals reduce property value and recreational potential, increase evapotranspiration losses, restrict navigation, increase water...

Photographic Record and Time Delays
This paper is presented for suggesting the use of photography to gather valid information about time delays on a construction project, which always cause major expense in themselves, and...

Remote Sensing for Tunnel Siting Studies
Data evaluated included Landsat, Skylab, black-and-white panchromatic, color, color-infrared, and low-sun-angle black-and-white infrared photography. Also used were thermal infrared and...

Windspeed Analysis of 1977 Birmingham Tornado
A set of postmortem force-response type analyses have been conducted and windspeeds quantified for the April 4, 1977, North Birmingham, Ala. tornado. Immediate field damage surveys and...

High Altitude Photos for Inactive Mines
The utility of high altitude, 1:120,000-scale, color, infrared aerial photographs for inventorying inactive surface mines and assessing their environmental conditions was demonstrates...

Mapping Massachusetts Wetlands
Government mapping programs have often been cost ineffective because of the repetition of incompatible and redundant mapping efforts at the conclusion of which the resultant maps are often...

Block Triangulation by Bundles and Stereo-Units
Tests were run on simulated and real block data to evaluate the comparative accuracies of bundle and independent unit block triangulation. Cases run using the ISP simulated test block...

Surface Dispersion in Wave Flume
The surface dispersion of a floating bead under wave action was investigated by measuring the Lagrangian characteristics using photographic techniques. The experiments were carried out...

Union Challenges to Methods Improvement Programs
This paper presents nine case studies that illustrate the type of labor relation problems that should be anticipated by management whenever a formal productivity measurement program using...

Errors in Utilization of Cold-Formed Steel Members
Experience indicates that the detailed requirements of AISI specifications are often overlooked in choosing cold-formed steel members for the structural components of buildings. Examples...

Estuarine Circulation from Dye-Buoy Photogrammetry

Civil Engineering Applications of Remote Sensing
<p>Remote sensing techniques have come a long way since photographs were taken from hot air balloons in the 1850s. Now, the highly sophisticated field of remote sensing is providing...
