A Framework for Performance-Based Seismic Design
The following probabilistic framework for seismic performance assessment is presented as an effective foundation for the development of performance-based guidelines. It suggests a generic...

Inside Job
River Mill Dam is a large Ambursen (buttress type) dam constructed in 1911 on the Clackamas River in Oregon. The preliminary and final design phase of the seismic upgrade project coincided...

An Improved Formulation for the Bed Shear Stress in Morphodynamic Simulations

Taking a New Approach (available in Structural Engineering Special Section only)
The first bridge rehabilitation project in Washington, DC to use the AASHTO Load and Resistant Factor Design (LRFD) specification reveals several lessons to be learned from using the newly...

Verdict Rendered
After the Grays Harbor County Courthouse in Montesano, Washington, was severely damaged by an earthquake in 1999, the surrounding community decided to preserve it. A design/build approach...

Weighing Anchors
Modern anchorage systems offer design engineers and contractors unprecedented choice in load transfer mechanisms. Some anchors are highly specialized, while others are appropriate for...
