North Ramp Pavement Evaluation/Rehabilitation—Houston Intercontinental Airport
The North Ramp at Houston's Intercontinental Airport is approximately 23 years old and serves Terminals A and B and also serves as a primary taxiway. Prior to having the new international...

Measurement and Analysis of Airside Pavement Roughness at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
In May 1990, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport management contracted with Harding Lawson Associates to implement a pavement management system for that airport. In this implementation,...

Use of Porous Friction Course to Retard Reflection Cracks in Bituminous Overlays
Porous Friction Courses (PFC) are open-graded, high air void, bituminous mixtures that are applied to pavement surfaces to improve skid resistance. In 1989, PFC was used as an interlayer...

Evaluation and Overlay Design of Airport Pavements
Heavy weight deflectometer (HWD), a heavier version of the falling weight deflectometer, enables detailed evaluation of airport pavements to be performed using a rapid a non-destructive...

Digital Image Processing

This proceedings, Digital Image Processing: Techniques and Applications in Civil Engineering, consists of the invited and submitted papers...

A Comparative Study on the Hindcasted Wave Climates
For the various sites of Turkish Black Sea Coast wave prediction is carried out by the use of two different wind data sources obtained both from coastal meteorological stations and synoptic...

Experimental Testing of Laterally Loaded Large Scale Bridge Abutments
The challenges to a bridge analyst in defining abutment boundary conditions and the current state of the practice are presented. Variables within the abutment system are defined and discussed...

Siting Agricultural Weather Stations
Studies were conducted in Arizona and Washington to investigate how the surrounding fetch affects data collected by agricultural weather stations (AWS). AWS surrounded by extensive areas...

The Coastal Data Information Program—A Successful Federal, State and University Cooperation
The Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) is a cooperative effort managed jointly by the U.S. Army Engineers, Waterways Experiment Station and the State of California, Department of...

Comparison of Multi-sensing Methods for the Detection of Cracks in Pavement Surfaces

Relation of Channel Stability to Scour at Highway Bridges Over Waterways in Maryland
Data from assessments of channel stability and observed-scour conditions at 876 highway bridges over Maryland waterways were entered into a database. Relations were found to exist among...

Heavy Aircraft Damage to Rigid Airport Pavements
A theoretical solution is presented for the damage caused by heavy aircraft at the transverse joints in a rigid airport pavement. Large stresses in the subgrade generate significant permanent...

Open Boundary Condition for Multiple Level FE Tidal Current Flow Analysis

Durability Failure of a Concrete Block Port Pavement
A concrete block port pavement began showing distress after 7.5 years of use. Initial repair attempts found extensive areas of deterioration. The concrete blocks were cracking, spalling,...

Overview of Permeable Bases
Drainable pavement systems consist of: permeable base, separator lyer, and edgegrain system. This paper focuses on permable bases. A permeable base must provide both permeability and stability....

Forensic Analysis Techniques for Joint Sealants
Growing concerns involving the field performance of pavement joint sealant materials has illustrated the need for forensic capabilities in determining the cause of sealant failures. Methods...

Variational Solutions of the Von Karman Plate Theory Based on a Mixed Formulation
A mixed formulation, involving the transverse deflection w(x,y) and the in-plane stress function F(x,y) as the unknown variables, will be used to obtain improved variational solutions...

Controlled Braking on Uneven Roads
The braking process of a passenger car may be influenced by a large number of variables relating to driver, vehicle, brake system, tire-road interaction and ambient conditions. Because...

Evapotranspiration Data Management in California
This paper will discuss components of the California Irrigation Management Information System (CIMIS). CIMIS is an automated agricultural weather network operated by the California Department...
