Using Interactive Simulation to Explore Drivers' Response to Visual Information Systems

Uplift Load-Displacement Behavior of Grillage Foundations
Full-scale field tests were conducted on steel grillage foundations for lattice transmission line towers that had been in place since 1929, 1947, and 1958. A total of eight tests were...

Eccentric Settlements of a Rigid Foundation on a Consolidating Layer
The paper examines the eccentric settlement of a rigid foundation located at the surface of a poroelastic layer saturated with a compressible pore fluid. The base of the rigid foundation...

Activated Carbon as a Catalyst for Polymerization of Phenolic Compounds
Previous studies by the principal investigator showed that the increase in the adsorptive capacity of activated carbon for phenolic compounds can be attributed to polymerization (oxidative...

A Peak Hour High Capacity Reservation and Person-Based Functional Classification Concept for Urban Mobility Plans and Corridor Growth Management
The management of future growth and mobility in urban corridors and areas has been based in part upon use of the Levels of Service and procedures of the Highway Capacity Manual. Capacity...

Estimation of Near-Regional Seismic Ground Motion from Underground Nuclear Explosion Tests
A problem unique to the location of a nuclear waste repository adjacent to the Nevada Test Site is the assessment of seismic ground motion from potential underground nuclear explosion...

Design and Performance Requirements for Surface Facilities of a High Level Nuclear Waste Repository
This paper describes three important steps in the design process of repository surface facilities: (1) Establishing performance requirements and risk levels, (2) translating performance...

Controlling the Seismic Behavior of Precast Concrete
Precast concrete has, through the years the years, acquired a bad reputation insofar as its ability to withstand earthquake is concerned. This reputation, though reasonably based, is not...

Ductile Connections for Precast Concrete Frame Systems
This paper describes a research program to investigate the behavior of ductile connections between precast beam-column elements. The objectives of the program are to provide rational design...

Seismic Performance Behavior of Precast Concrete Beam-Column Joints
The experimental test program being conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology on 1/3-scale model precast concrete beam-to-column connections is summarized. The objective...

Seismic Response of Average High-Rise Building Structions in Japan
Dynamic characteristic models, representing average high-rise building structures in Japan, have been established through the regression analyses utilizing review documents of seismic...
