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,...

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...

Small-Diameter Round Timber Connections
An over stocking of trees having diameters less than 20 cm, as measured 1.52 m off the ground presents a major fire hazard to over 54 million acres of National Forest land. Improving the...

Natural Tracers of Coastal Sediments
The properties of natural sediments can be used to determine their sources and to trace their transport paths through coastal environments. These properties include the mineralogies of...

Safeguarding Los Alamos
A forest fire that burned 48,000 ac (19,500 ha) around the Los Alamos National Laboratory, in New Mexico, in May 2000, created another problem for one of the nation's most...

Surface Irrigation
Surface irrigation refers to a large group of irrigation methods in which water is distributed by gravity over the surface of the field. Water is typically introduced at the high point...
