New Concepts in Structural Strength Assessment for Large Buildings in Fire
This paper presents theoretical descriptions of the key phenomena that govern the behaviour of composite framed structures in fire. These descriptions have been developed in parallel with...

Small-Diameter Round Timber Connections
An over stocking of trees having diameters less than 20 cm, as measured 1.52 m off the ground presents a major fire hazard to over 54 million acres of National Forest land. Improving the...

Development and Validation of Mechanistic Coefficients for Flexible Pavement Structures Designed by AASHTO Guide

Under the Microscope
Forensic engineering is typically more complex than engineering design because it requires the integration of specialized knowledge of materials science, structural analysis and design,...

Foundations and Ground Improvement
This proceedings, Foundations and Ground Improvement, consists of papers presented and accepted for publication for the specialty conference,...

Application of Artificial Neural Networks for Ungauged Catchments Flood Prediction
The prediction of floods with acceptable accuracy is the most important step in designing flood control structures and operating flood damage mitigation projects. It is more difficult...

Raising the Bar of BART
Although it was originally designed to withstand a strong earthquake, and did so admirably in 1989, the Bay Area Transit (BART) system was recently evaluated to determine its ability to...

Scenic-Bridge Strengthening (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue only)
Built in 1937, California's Big Creek Bridge—a double-arch crossing with half-arch side spans—was due for a seismic retrofit. Challenged by the structure's unique...

The Collision of Surf, Sand, and the Law at Lechuza Beach: Coastal Processes and Public-Private Shore Boundaries
In order to undertake coastal development opportunities, the property owner must first establish the boundary between public and private property along the beachfront in order to demonstrate...

Safeguarding Los Alamos
A forest fire that burned 48,000 ac (19,500 ha) around the Los Alamos National Laboratory, in New Mexico, in May 2000, created another problem for one of the nation's most...
