From Good to Great: The Evolution of Cutoff Wall Quality Control and Verification Techniques
The last three decades have brought tremendous improvements to quality control (QC) procedures for construction and post-construction verification of deep cutoff walls installed in active high-hazard dams....

70 Years of Soil-Bentonite Slurry Walls: So, What's New
The soil-bentonite slurry wall (SBSW) is an established ground improvement technology that continues to find applications. It’s often the best and most economical vertical barrier to essentially stop lateral...

Shear and Interface Strength of Clay at Very Low Effective Stress
Thin-specimen direct shear (TSDS) tests were conducted to measure the shearing strength of kaolinite, and interface strengths between kaolinite and acrylic plastic and anodized aluminum,...

Development of Fundamental Wall Geometry

Size and Scale Effects on the Shear Strength of Concrete Beams
This paper identifies and discusses the role of proper geometric scale of relevant parameters in the size effect in shear, particularly in terms of practical beam design. In the overall...

Pioneer Square Areaways
Pioneer Square, one of the earliest neighborhoods in Seattle, is adjacent to Elliott Bay. Much ofthis part of the city originally was built on existing land that used to get flooded. When...

New Shear Stud Provisions for Composite Beam Design
The 2005 American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 2005) will contain significant changes to the shear connector provisions for...
