This paper describes design of the noise monitoring system for Denver International Airport. When the airport opens in 1993, the system must monitor compliance with two standards established...

Truck Loading Data for a Probabilistic Bridge Live Load Model
The University of Colorado at Boulder completed a major bridge testing and analysis program for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). According to FHWA, this study has produced the...

Crane Raise with Zero Downtime
Massachusetts Fort Authority (MPA) was faced with a dilemma. Its Conley Terminal tenants needed higher cranes but could not relinquish the cranes for more than a few days at a time. No...

Concepcion Dam Design & Construction Problems and Their Solutions
Concepcion Dam is a curved axis gravity structure 68 m high and 695 m long. It supplies water to Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The dam contains 290,000 cubic meters of RCC. Challenges...

Live Load Models Based on WIM Data
The objective of the paper is to present the results of weigh-in-motion (WIM) measurements carried out in Michigan. Selected bridges were instrumented and truck weights and axle configurations...

Development of the GA-4 and GA-9 Legal Weight Truck Spent Fuel Shipping Casks
General Atomics (GA) is developing two legal-weight-truck spent-fuel shipping casks for transporting commercial reactor spent fuel. The GA-4 pressurized-water-reactor (PWR) and the GA-9...

High-Capacity, High-Strength Trailer Designs for the GA-4/GA-9 Casks
General Atomics (GA) is developing final designs for two dedicated legal-weight trailers to transport the GA-4 and GA-9 Spent-Fuel Casks. The basic designs for these high-capacity, high-strength...

Approach for Implementing Burnup Credit in High-Capacity Truck Casks
General Atomics (GA) will be submitting an application for certification to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the GA-4 and GA-9 Casks in 1992. To maintain a capacity of...

Unintentional Stoppages of Trucks Hauling High-Level Nuclear Waste in Nevada
Any unintentional stoppage of trucks hauling high-level nuclear waste in Nevada could intensify public concerns about the negative impacts of the Yucca Mountain project. This paper provides...

Transportation Access to Yucca Mountain: Critical Issues
Transportation planning for a repository at Yucca Mountain is complicated because of uncertainty about the modes and numbers of nuclear waste shipments and because of uncertainty about...

An Expert System for Routing Hazardous Materials

Multiloader-Truck Fleet Selection Using Simulation

Societal-Individual Risks for Hazmat Transport
Risks associated with the transport of hazardous materials by truck and rail are viewed from two perspectives: society in general and the individual residing adjacent to the route. A range...

Who Pays for the Unexpected in Construction
The problem of who pays for the unexpected in construction is discussed in relation to the testing and inspection of construction materials. Laboratory is often blamed for poor construction...

Automation of a Truck-Mounted Drill Rig
Truck-mounted drill rigs used for soils properties investigation, foundation evaluation, ore exploration, and producing monitor and water wells typically require, because of their weight,...

The Carson and Truckee Rivers Lifeline in the Desert
Nevada is the most arid state in the nation with an average annual precipitation of less than 9 inches (23 cm) over the 110,500 square miles (286,200 sq km). The Truckee, Carson, and Walker...

Transportation Capabilities of the Existing Cask Fleet
This paper describes a number of scenarios estimating the amount of spent nuclear fuel that could be transported to a Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Facility by various combinations...

Truck Accident and Release Rates for Hazmat Routing
Estimates of accident and release rates are essential in the conduct of risk assessments in routing studies for highway transportation of hazardous materials. Recent published literature...
