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.
Evaluation of Site Response Analysis Programs in Predicting Nonlinear Soil Response Using Geotechnical Downhole Array Data
Abstract: Liquefaction is a state of soil in which soil starts to behave as a fluid. This happens when the pore pressure rises up and it can’t get dissipated as fast as it is rising up during the earthquake. Trying to ...
Experimental Seismic Evaluation of Ceiling-Piping-Partition Nonstructural Systems
The seismic performance of nonstructural components plays a significant role during and after an earthquake. Damage to these systems can leave buildings inoperable, causing economic losses and extensive downtime. Therefore, ...
Evaluation of Warm Mix Additives for Use in Modified Asphalt Mixtures
The purpose of this research effort was to evaluate the use of warm-mix additives with modified (polymer-modified and terminal blend tire rubber) asphalt mixtures from Nevada and California. This research was completed in ...
Assessment of In-situ Corrosion Conditions at Nevada Mechanically Stabilized Earth Wall Sites: Using Electrochemical Soil Characteristics and Linear Polarization Resistance
The inability of soil to provide sufficient tensile strength presents challenges for soils being used as a structural building material. However, it is possible to improve the structural performance with the inclusion of ...
Environmental Fate and Stability of Iron-Bound Organic Matter During Redox Reactions
Soil organic matter (SOM) accounts for a significant fraction of the global carbon pool. Stabilization or destabilization of SOM greatly influences the carbon reservoir the in soil environment, greenhouse gas emission from ...
Phototransformation of Bifenthrin and Methoxyfenozide Residues on Pistachio (Pistacia vera) Hulls and Model Surfaces
Phototransformation of two pesticides, bifenthrin and methoxyfenozide, were studied on the surfaces of pistachio nut hulls and other model surfaces after application using a laboratory spray chamber. The experiments were ...
