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,...

Evolution of Composite Floor Systems in the United States
Composite floor systems, which combine structural steel beams with a cast-in-place concrete slab, have grown in popularity in the U.S. during the past 40 years. In most early applications,...

Structural Lumber from Small-Diameter Western U.S. Softwood Trees
The purpose of this study was to determine the mechanical properties, and corresponding economic value, of dimension lumber produced from selected over-stocked forest stands of small-diameter...

Under the Microscope
Forensic engineering is typically more complex than engineering design because it requires the integration of specialized knowledge of materials science, structural analysis and design,...

Roadspace Reallocation Increasing Bus Use
This paper briefly outlines the history and current development of the role of the bus and how roadspace re-allocation particularly through bus priority is used to increase public transport...

Modeling Surface Trapped River Plumes: A Sensitivity Study

An Improved Formulation for the Bed Shear Stress in Morphodynamic Simulations

Monitoring and Performance Analysis of Protection Works at Rosslare Strand
Post construction monitoring and performance analysis has become an important part of many major coastal protection projects. In the past such work was carried out very much on an ad-hoc...

The Digital Evolution
As designers such as Gehry Architects dream up ever-more fluid and sculptural shapes for buildings, the only way to turn those aesthetic shapes into solid, safe structures is by using...
