Modelling of Displacement Piles in Sand Using a Pressure Chamber

Analysis of Dynamic Laterally Loaded Pile in Clay
Deflections of laterally loaded pile groups are strongly affected by the degree of pile head fixity. If the cap provides perfect restraint against rotation, deflections are only about...

Experimental p-y Model for Submerged, Stiff Clay

On the Inelastic Design of Steel I Girder Bridges
This paper documents the development of a relatively easy to use set of effective plastic moment expressions and compares the performance of these equations with a series of experimental...

Torsion of Reinforced Concrete -A Historical Overview
The story of torsion of reinforced concrete must start with the French professor, C. L. Navier. In his landmark book (Navier, 1826) he rigorously derived the first rational theory for...

Rock on Down the Road
The reconstruction of 11 miles of U.S. Highway 52 through the heart of Rochester, Minnesota-known as the Roc 52 project-appears poised to become the standard by which all design/build...

Some Historical and Future Aspects of Engineering
This paper considers some historical aspects of engineering mechanics with emphasis on the long historical development of mechanics from the evolution of mathematics and tool-making before...

Engineering, Design and Construction of Lunar Bases
How do we begin to expand our civilization to the Moon? What are the technical issues that infrastructural engineers, in particular, must address? This paper has the goal of introducing...
