Seismic Response of Columns in Horizontally Curved Bridges
As part of a FHWA sponsored research project to study highway system resilience, a two-fifths scale curved steel plate girder bridge was constructed and subjected to earthquake simulation at the Large Scale Structures ...
Stability of Bridge Column Rebar Cages during Construction
The lateral behavior and stability of bridge column rebar cages were investigated to reduce the potential of failure and collapse during construction. Rebar cages are temporary structures made of longitudinal and transverse ...
Experimental Studies of Reinforcing Steel and Shape Memory Alloys in Mechanically Spliced Connections for Seismic Application
The research reported in this document was concerned with the potential application of mechanical reinforcing bar splices for use in the plastic hinge of a bridge column for use in accelerated bridge construction (ABC). ...
Analysis and Design of a Multistory Reinforced Concrete Structure
This report details the process of the design of Sierra Insurance Headquarters, including the calculation of loads and the design of selected building components. Detailed calculations and project drawings are provided.
City of Ashland, Water Treatment Plant Analysis and Design
Water supply forecasting for the Ashland City area has not been projected for the next 25 to 50 years. Apopulation growth of 15,000 residents is expected in the next 50 years based on current population growthtrends. Daily ...
Screening of Coagulants for the Removal of Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products
Treatment and removal of 98 pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) from the secondary effluent of two water reclamation facilities (WRFs) was evaluated using the coagulation process. The plants include Truckee ...
Use of Biochar to Produce Reclaimed Water for Irrigation Reuse Purposes
Contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), especially, pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) are not removed well during conventional wastewater treatment and hence pose water quality risk to the environment and ...
Cross-Section Analysis Of Beams With Advanced Materials: Computational Implementation
Many advanced construction materials such as ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC), high strength steel rebars, and larger prestressing strands have been developed and their use is ever growing. However, ready and ...
Adopting a Vision Zero Plan for the Analysis of Pedestrian Safety in Washoe County
This study analyzes pedestrian crashes occurring in four different focus areas in Reno and Sparks, NV (Washoe County) to help reduce fatal and serious injuries. In conjunction with Vision Zero of Northern Nevada, achieving ...
Performance Evaluation of Asphalt Mixtures with Tire Rubber Modified Binder
Waste tire is a worldwide problem. One effective solution for recycling scrap tires is to use them as an asphalt modifier for paving applications.The necessity of recognizing the performance of terminal blend tire rubber ...
