Making the Most of HPC
Developing high-performance concrete (HPC) was only the first step toward bringing a material with improved durability, strength, constructability, and mechanical properties to the bridge...

Moving Mountains
The earthmoving and rock-crushing operations at the Eastside Reservoir represented one of the largest such projects in the history of the United States. The earth and rock-fill dams required...

Experimental Approach
One of the best kept secrets during World War II, the K-25 facility in the Cumberland Mountains of East Tennessee prepared uranium for use in nuclear weapons. By 1987, the 13 million sq...

Walled In (Available in Geo-Environmental Special Issue only)
For more than 50 years manufacturing plants adjacent to the northeast bank of a midwestern creek produced asbestos-reinforced construction materials. When manufacturing at the plants ceased...

Keeping It Together
A new framing system for precast concrete columns and beams will allow tall buildings to withstand large earthquakes without damage to the structural integrity of the building. By using...

Sum of the Parts
As with all of the bay bridges that serve as life lines to the San Francisco peninsula, the 32-year-old San Mateo Bridge needs strengthening to withstand a maximum credible earthquake...

Scenic-Bridge Strengthening (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue only)
Built in 1937, California's Big Creek Bridge—a double-arch crossing with half-arch side spans—was due for a seismic retrofit. Challenged by the structure's unique...

On Martian Soil
Discussions are ongoing about how and when to build human settlements on other worlds. Many scientific discussions have focused on settlements on Mars, and how the initial colonists would...

Inside Job
River Mill Dam is a large Ambursen (buttress type) dam constructed in 1911 on the Clackamas River in Oregon. The preliminary and final design phase of the seismic upgrade project coincided...

Added Protection
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is modifying the 335 ft (102 m) high Casitas Dam in Ventura County, California, to withstand a magnitude 6.9 earthquake. The modification includes strengthening...

Road Test
The National Center for Asphalt Technology at Auburn University is building a $7 million, 1.8 mi (2.9 km) oval test track to perform accelerated pavement loading experiments. At least...
