A Preliminary Case for the Existence of Hurricane Alleys in the Gulf of Mexico
A review of hurricance intensity in the Gulf of Mexico suggests there are two alleys where hurricanes are roughly 20% more intense than elsewhere. This paper develops a physical basis for the alleys using...

Review of Climate Science for Engineering Practice
Weather and climate are a factor in civil engineering design and practice. Weather is defined as the state of the atmosphere with respect to wind, temperature, cloudiness, moisture, pressure,...

Research, Development, and Demonstration Needs
Research, development and demonstration (RDD) is needed to advance recommended civil engineering practices and standards in order to effectively address climate change impacts. Wilbanks...

Non-Destructive Strength Evaluation of a Continuous, Reinforced Concrete Slab Bridge
In the state of New Mexico, a significant number of reinforced concrete slab (RCS) bridges provide service on interstate highways I-10, I-25, and I-40 that are subjected to large amounts...

Refrigerated Foundations
Refrigeration systems used to cool foundations on frozen ground can be classified as either active or passive, depending on whether external energy is used to power the systems. If pumps,...

Characterization of Particle Class Sizes Associated with Indicator Organisms in Stormwater
The presence of pathogen indicators is the leading cause of water body impairment in the United States, accounting for over 15% of the waters currently requiring TMDL development (USEPA,...

Application of TOPNET in the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project (DMIP)
This paper describes the application of a networked version of TOPMODEL, TOPNET, as part of the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project, DMIP. The model implementation is based on a...

Comparison of Hydrodynamic Parameters for a Floating Breakwater
The U. S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center is in the process of developing a Rapidly Installed Breakwater System (RIBS) for use in Joint Logistics Over the Shore Operations...

Effect of Aluminum Compression on ACSR Conductor Sags at High Operating Temperatures
Deregulation and restructuring are sweeping the electric utility industry in the United States. As a result, many utility engineers are analyzing, re-rating, and upgrading their most critical...

Predicting Droughts for the South Platte River System
In this paper we apply probability theory and stochastic processes to determine drought properties, particularly drought duration. Spccilicslly, we model the sequences of wet and dry years...

Physical Method to Increase Shotcrete Early-Age Strength

A Grand New Bridge
Approximately 65 km south of Seoul, rising above the Asan Bay, the Seohae Grand Bridge now stands as the longest bridge in South Korea. The 9.4 km long cable-stayed bridge, which runs...
