Structurally Enhanced Foundations: A Functional Solution to Thaw Strain in Frozen Sand and Gravel
Some building sites with perennially frozen soil profiles are developed using nonelevated, conventional-appearing foundation systems. These sites consist of frozen sands and gravels and...

Advances in Analytical Modeling of Torsional Members
The basic formula for calculating the torsional strength of reinforced concrete members was developed by Rausch (1929) using the space truss concept. Unfortunately, Rausch's equation may...

Raising the Bar - 345kV Uprating
The paper presents solutions to increasing the transfer capacity (book rating) of two critical 345kV tie lines. Described are computer modeling techniques using laser survey data coupled...

The Determination of Velocity Spectra and Dissipation by Direct and Indirect Means using Second-Order Accurate PIV
In this paper we present a 2 nd order accurate technique in space (following Wereley & Meinhart's (2001) extension of Cowen & Monismith's (1997) dynamic sub-window PIV...

High Performance Dampers for Bridges
A multi-disciplinary research study investigates the use of shape memory alloys as seismic dampers in bridges. Shape memory alloys are a class of alloys that display several unique characteristics,...

Shape of Storm Pollutograph from the Four Different Rural Watersheds
(Abstract only) Just as a hydrograph describes the flow rate of water for a storm event, a pollutograph shows the rate at which pollutants dissolved or suspended in the runoff are transported....
