Failure of a Twenty-Foot High Retaining Wall
A cantilever retaining wall, designed in apparent accord with provisions in a civil engineering handbook, failed soon after construction. Analyses of the causes of the failure are presented....

Shear and Interface Strength of Clay at Very Low Effective Stress
Thin-specimen direct shear (TSDS) tests were conducted to measure the shearing strength of kaolinite, and interface strengths between kaolinite and acrylic plastic and anodized aluminum,...

Advanced Fracture Control Procedures for Deepwater Platforms and Compliant Towers
This paper describes an integrated approach to fracture control problems – applied first as a necessary adjunct to the authors' own engineering practice, then in developing...

Case Study of Offshore Pile System Reliability
This paper presents the results of research effort to evaluate the reliability of offshore pile foundation systems. It is an extension of previous work by the authors [14] dealing with...

Offshore Platform Steel Specification
The discovery in the 1980's of local brittle zones (LBZ's) in and near the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of the fabrication welds in certain offshore platform steels...
