Medium Classic Rail Traffic: How to Forecast the New High Speed Rail Traffic
This paper describes the current situation of the transport flows by modes in the international relations between Spain and the rest of Europe. Explains the geographic zoning adopted for...

The Singularity of Spanish Railway High Speed
The Madrid-Seville line has been the main target in many action programmes pursuing the improvement of its insufficient capacity. In 1987, the Government proposed a high speed line (250...

Seismic Rehabilitation of Sardis Dam
Extensive subsurface investigation of the embankment dam revealed the existence of a weak layer of silt and soft clay in the original topstratum clay underlaying the upstream shell of...

Earthquake Hazard Investigative Procedures for Central United States Waterworks
The vulnerability assessment of Central United States waterworks for earthquake hazards is a developing engineering practice for civil engineers in Arkansas, Missouri and states close...

Transportation Lifeline Losses in Large Eastern Earthquakes
In December 1991 Applied Technology Council (ATC) and its subcontractor, EQE Inc., completed a 2-year Federal Emergency Management Agency-sponsored study to assess the seismic vulnerability...

Seismic Hazard Along a Central U.S. Oil Pipeline
An integrated approach is used to evaluate seismic hazards at six sites where pipeline 22 crosses the major rivers in West Tennessee. On the basis of historical and instrumental data,...

Seismic Hazard Analysis for Crude Oil Pipelines in the New Madrid Seismic Zone
The seismic vulnerability of three crude oil pipelines in and around the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) is evaluated for a repetition of the 1811-12 New Madrid events. The seismic hazard...

An Assessment of Environmental Costs Associated with Crude Oil Pipeline Damage Caused by Earthquakes
This paper presents a methodology for assessing the risk of environmental contamination from oil pipeline leaks caused by earthquakes. Risk is measured both as volume of oil released and...

A New Concrete Armor Unit for Breakwaters: The Beta Block
The aim of this paper, is to present a new artificial block for the protection of breakwaters. This armor unit, named BETA, has been designed and tested in the Coasts and Harbors Studies...

Lifeline Earthquake Engineering in the Central and Eastern U.S.
This proceedings, Lifeline Earthquake Engineering in the Central and Eastern U.S., is a collection of papers presented at the 1992 American...

F-K Spectra From a Haskell-Type Source in a Multiple-Layered Half-Space
Analytic expressions for the complex Fourier amplitudes of seismic ground motion at the free surface of a layered half-space are established. The seismic source is described using Haskell's...

Greenhouse Irrigation Technology Transfer in Spain
In recent years, an intensive horticultural production system using unheated, plastic greenhouses has been widely adopted in the Mediterranean basin. Greenhouses now occupy more than 15,000...

Spanish High Level Radioactive Waste Management System Issues

Experimental Studies for the Port of Bilbao Extension
The Port of Bilbao is the leading port in Spain concerning total traffic volume. It also holds a relevant position in the international context. The Managing Board recently approved an...

Mobile-Bed Physical Model Tests for the 1992 Olympic Harbour
The undistorted physical model is described which allowed the measurement of the wave induced velocity field along the main breakwater, and also in Somorrostro Beach (Barcelona). The current...

Seismic Mitigation of the Memphis Water System
Memphis, Tennessee is located in zone 2 of the 1988 Standard Building Code, close to the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The probability of having a seismic event of significant magnitude is...

Computer Implementation of Seismic Building Codes
The objective of this work is to implement the provisions of building codes current in the U.S. as well as those of other countries for the seismic resistant design of buildings. The work...
