Mechanical Behavior of Constrained Concrete

Economics of Regionalization
This report investigates some of the arguments for and against regionalization of systems in the water supply industry. The history, potential advantages, disadvantages and costs and benefits...

Georgia's Low-Cost Approach to Rehabilitating Concrete Pavements
A six step approach to rehabilitating concrete pavements is described. The six steps are: (1) Slab stabilization; (2) slab replacement, where necessary; (3) repair of spalls; (4) resawing...

Des Moines Skywalk System
A method is proposed for estimating pedestrian traffic on a proposed skywalk system in Des Moines, Iowa. Factors that influence usage are identified. Two mathematical models are presented...

A Moral Appraisal of Cost-Benefit Analysis
A cost-benefit analysis is one in which the engineer weighs the possible positive consequences, or benefits, of a given action against the negative consequences, or costs, of that same...

CW Microwave Location of Voids Beneath Paved Areas
The problem of locating voids beneath paved areas is a perplexing and costly one. Usually voids are investigated by test borings, which is a discontinuous hit-or-miss process. The use...

Hot-Film Response and Digital Analysis in Bubly Flows
Hot film responses in bubbly flows are analyzed for the development of a digital analysis technique. It is shown that hot-film anenometry and digital data analysis techniques can be excellent...

Modernized Metric System—SI—The American Choice
Americans have played a major role in the development of the new International System of Measurement Units (SI). The world is moving rapidly in the adoption of this modernized metric system....

Coal-Fired Reference Plants: Project Benefits
It is expected that requirements for new electric generating capacity will necessitate shortened engineering and construction schedules for future coal fired projects. The reference plant...

Permeability and Consolidation of Normally Consolidated Soils
This paper first presents a unique relationship between permeability and void ratio. This relationship is then used for deriving the governing differential equation of consolidation for...

Circular Voided Concrete Slab Stiffnesses
Finite element procedures for determining the plate bending stiffnesses of a circular voided slab are presented and the results are compared with those obtained from tests on model elastic...

Progressive Damage of a Spalling Rod
A phenomenological theory describing the process of gradual damage of brittle rods leading to their ultimate rupture is developed and applied to the problem of spatial and temporal evolution...

Implementation of Foreman-Delay Surveys
The practice of using surveys of construction foremen to make a qualitative and quantitative determination of the job factors resulting in lost time, and the subsequent use of this information...

Probabilistic Evaluation of Welded Structures
Some deficiencies in structual welding, particularly when thousands of welds are installed, are expected. This deficiency may or may not compromise the strength of the joint or the structural...

ASCE Salary Survey 1981
This is the sixteenth report in a series of biennial salary surveys conducted by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Salary data is reported on seven major categories for civil engineers:...
