Remodeled 42nd St. Bus Terminal Improves both Transit and the Neighborhood
A $160 million project to expand New York City's 42nd St. Bus Terminal was completed last year. The project is expected to improve commuter transit by increasing passenger...

Construction Equipment & Techniques for the Eighties
Thirty-three papers on construction equipment and techniques are presented. Construction equipment management is discussed, including criteria for equipment selection, utilization and...

Conjoint Analysis of Residential Preferences
A methodology for studying the effect of different locational factors on individual residential preferences is developed. Observations on the overall preferences of individuals are used...

Building Energy Reductions: Windbreak Optimization
Wind tunnel model studies of houses are used to determine how one can best reduce the surface pressure variations from wind and the associated air infiltration, emphasizing the correct...

How Did These Firms Grow in Face of a Depressed Economy?
Despite a decline in construction physical volume of about 25% in the past five years, some engineering firms have grown. Profiles of three such firms are presented. Management decisions...

Washington D.C. Suburban I66—Unique Compromise in Expressway Design
A controversial urban Interstate project with more than 40 years of history has reached the final stages of construction. Citizen participation in varying forms has led to the development...

Time Space Scheduling Method
A construction scheduling technique is presented which is, in many cases, more advantageous than bar charts and network schedules, particularly for repetitive activities and for scheduling...

Current Aspects of Construction Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation work suffers from wasteful attitudes, social conditions, and regulatory barriers that prevent it from reaching its potential. There are four primary ways in which rehabilitation...

Application of Cost-Flow Forecasting Models
Cost-flow models are formulated for forecasting the cumulative cost-flow in housing and public buildings, as a function of total cost and construction period. This permits to estimate...

Simultaneous Airblast and Ground Motion Response
A single-degree-of-freedom approach is used to model structural response to superimposed airblast and ground vibration from conventional explosions. A method is used whereby the force...

Housing Construction in Areas of Mine Subsidence
Many areas in the United States are underlain by abandoned mines and many more areas will be undermined in the future. As mine cavities collapse they cause settlement and ground distortions...

Nucleated Urban Growth Effects on Transportation Energy Consumption
An aggregate digital computer simulation model was used to test the urban passenger transportation energy consumption associated with different patterns of nuclear growth in a hypothetical...

Medium Head Hydro Power House Concrete Volumes
The volume of concrete in a hydroelectric powerhouse varies by a large amount, depending mostly on the size of turbine, size of generator, and the foundation conditions. An analysis based...
