General Terms and Conditions
DB commercial contract terms can differ from conventional design-bid-build project terms, depending primarily on the owner's objectives, the level of risk that is to be assigned...

Some Case Histories of Pile Foundations in Permafrost
Foundations for permafrost conditions should conform to one of three basic design principles: keep it frozen, let it thaw, or thaw the ground before construction. To keep the permafrost...

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,...

Simulation/Optimization Modeling Post-Audits
S/O models have long been used to compute optimal strategies for user-specified optimization problems. It is useful to provide a retrospective of two S/O modeling applications, and how...
