  • Higgins, Christopher; Turan, Tugrul (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2013-05)
    After the collapse of the I35W Bridge in Minneapolis, MN in 2007, transportation agencies began evaluating and rating their inventories of gusset plate connections. Connection evaluations require accurate drawings that d ...
  • Hurwitz, David S.; Heaslip, Kevin P.; Schrock, Steven D.; Swake, Joshua; Marnell, Patrick; Tuss, Halston; Fitzsimmons, Eric (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2013-09-01)
    Previous research has found that distracted driving measurably increases driver response times to unanticipated roadway hazards. These instances are of particular consequence as they tend to be highly correlated with v ...
  • Garcia-Medina, Gabriel; Ozkan-Haller, H. Tuba; Ruggiero, Peter; Oskamp, Jeffrey (American Meteorological Society, 2013-06)
    An operational inner-shelf wave forecasting system was implemented for the Oregon and southwest Washington coast in the U.S. Pacific Northwest (PNW). High-resolution wave forecasts are useful for navigational planning, i ...
  • Chen, Yongshuai; Yeh, Harry (Cambridge University Press, 2014-05-19)
    Collisions of counter-propagating solitary waves are investigated experimentally. Precision measurements of water-surface profiles are made with the use of the laser induced fluorescence (LIF) technique. During the col ...
  • Cox, Brady R.; Boulanger, Ross W.; Tokimatsu, Kohji; Wood, Clinton M.; Abe, Akio; Ashford, Scott; Donahue, Jennifer; Ishihara, Kenji; Kayen, Robert; Katsumata, Kota; Kishida, Tadahiro; Kokusho, Takaji; Mason, H. Benjamin; Moss, Robb; Stewart, Jonathan P.; Tohyama, Kazushi; Zekkos, Dimitrios (Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, 2013-03)
    The 2011 M[subscript W] = 9.0 Tohoku-oki earthquake generated a large number of unique soil liquefaction case histories, including cases with strong ground motion recordings on liquefiable or potentially liquefiable so ...
  • Choi, K.; Haque, M.; Lee, H. W.; Cho, Y. K.; Kwak, Y. H (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013-08)
    The construction industry is one of the largest sectors in the U.S. economy, yet little is known about the key macroeconomic parameters that affect its industry’s structure and performance. The main objectives of this ...
  • Catalán, Patricio A.; Haller, Merrick C.; Plant, William J. (American Geophysical Union, 2014-05-28)
    The microwave backscatter properties of surf zone waves are analyzed using field observations. By utilizing a preexisting, independent, water surface discrimination technique, the microwave returns were extracted along ...
  • Gillins, Daniel T.; Bartlett, Steven F. (ASCE - American Society of Civil Engineers, 2014-04)
    In the 1990s, Bartlett and Youd introduced empirical equations for predicting horizontal displacement from liquefaction-induced lateral spreading; these equations have become popular in engineering practice. The equati ...
  • Piemonti, Adriana D.; Babbar-Sebens, Meghna; Luzar, E. Jane (American Geophysical Union, 2013-10-08)
    This paper focuses on investigating (a) how landowner tenure and attitudes of farming communities affect the preference of individual conservation practices in agricultural watersheds, (b) how spatial distribution of l ...
  • Jannat, Mafruhatul; Hunter-Zaworski, Katharine M. (Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, 2012)
    In response to the growing environmental concern, the use of low speed vehicles (LSVs) on public roadways is gradually increasing in recent years as a short-range alternative to fossil-fueled autos. Primarily designed fo ...
  • Lucksiri, Kraisorn; Miller, Thomas H.; Gupta, Rakesh; Pei, Shiling; van de Lindt, John W. (Elsevier, 2012-03)
    This paper highlights the development of a rapid visual screening (RVS) tool to quickly identify, inventory, and rank residential buildings that are potentially seismically hazardous, focusing on single-family, wood-fram ...
  • Elms, David G.; Brown, Colin B. (Taylor & Francis, 2012)
    The responsibilities which civil engineers, and particularly the engineer of record, accept are considered. The interaction with other decision makers such as the owner, stakeholders, the law and contractors results in c ...
  • Elms, David G.; Brown, Colin B. (Taylor & Francis, 2012)
    Engineering is largely concerned with models and modelling. Models provide a context in which decisions are made. Here the modelling process is considered in a general sense and then the relationship with engineering mod ...
  • Babbar-Sebens, Meghna; Barr, Robert C.; Tedesco, Lenore P.; Anderson, Milo (Elsevier, 2013-01-24)
    Wetland ecosystems are considered as potential ecological solutions for increasing the capacity of watersheds to store runoff waters upstream, and thereby, decrease risk of downstream flooding. Especially in tile-drain ...
  • Park, Sangki; van de Lindt, John W.; Cox, Daniel; Gupta, Rakesh; Aguiniga, Francisco (Taylor & Francis, 2012-07-18)
    Over the last half-century, scientists and engineers have developed methods to better understand and mitigate the damage caused by tsunamis. According to U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) P646, buildings in ...
  • Williams, Keith; Olsen, Michael J.; Roe, Gene V.; Glennie, Craig (MDPI - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2013-09-18)
    A thorough review of available literature was conducted to inform of advancements in mobile LIDAR technology, techniques, and current and emerging applications in transportation. The literature review touches briefly o ...
  • Rodriguez-Nikl, Tonatiuh; Brown, Colin B. (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2012-10)
    While contemporary civil engineering projects are increasingly complex, the cognitive abilities of the decision maker remain limited. There is a conflict between the complexity that is required to describe a scenario wit ...
  • Bella, David A. (1983)
  • Olsen, Michael J.; Young, Adam P.; Ashford, Scott A. (Elsevier, 2012-08)
    This paper discusses the development of a new GIS extension named the Topographic Compartment Analysis Tool (TopCAT), which compares sequential digital elevation models (DEMs) and provides a quantitative and statistical ...
  • Park, Hyoungsu; Cox, Daniel T.; Lynett, Patrick J.; Wiebe, Dane M.; Shin, Sungwon (Elsevier, 2013-09)
    A laboratory benchmark test for tsunami inundation through an urban waterfront including free surface elevation, velocity, and specific momentum flux is presented and compared with a numerical model (COULWAVE). The physi ...
