A Simple Model to Predict Soil Resistance to Driving for Long Piles in Deepwater Normally Consolidated Clays
As the exploration and development for offshore oil and gas reserves moves into the deepwater environment of the continental slope, a good model is necessary to evaluate drivability of...

Innovations in Geosynthetic Rolled Erosion Control Products: From Forests to Fibers
Over the last 50 years, many different types of geosynthetic rolled erosion control products (RECPs) have emerged, ranging from different structure types to different fiber types. Natural-fiber...

Design of Connections
Bolted connections for transmission structures are normally designed as bearing type connections. It is assumed that bolts connecting one member to another carry the load in the connection...

Evaluation of Vertica Retaining Wall Systems
Prepared by the Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC). This report describes a HITEC evaluation designed to determine the basic capabilities...

Failure of a Twenty-Foot High Retaining Wall
A cantilever retaining wall, designed in apparent accord with provisions in a civil engineering handbook, failed soon after construction. Analyses of the causes of the failure are presented....

Advanced Fracture Control Procedures for Deepwater Platforms and Compliant Towers
This paper describes an integrated approach to fracture control problems – applied first as a necessary adjunct to the authors' own engineering practice, then in developing...

Offshore Platform Steel Specification
The discovery in the 1980's of local brittle zones (LBZ's) in and near the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of the fabrication welds in certain offshore platform steels...

Asset Management of Earth Retaining Structures: Design through Design Life
Regarding new earth retaining structures (ERS) construction, the message is clear: plan for asset management. New construction is certainly not immune to performance issues, and the time...
