Intergalactic Soil Nails: Excavation Support for the Deep Space Auditorium
A software company based outside Madison, Wis., had a need for an auditorium as part of its campus expansion in 2011. The 829,000-sq-ft, 11,400-seat "Deep Space" auditorium was to be built underground,...

Long-Term Performance Monitoring of a Hillside Retaining Wall
To accommodate expansion of the West Point Treatment Plant in Seattle, WA, a 3,000-ft-long soldier pile, tieback-anchored retaining wall was constructed from May 1991 to May 1992. An oblique...

Is There a Movement Toward Three-dimensional Slope Stability Analyses?
Over the past few years, interest in performing three-dimensional (3-D) slope stability analyses has surged. An increasing number of research papers on this topic are being published at...
