Gazetas G. , Anastasopoulos I. et al.
<p>The paper demonstrates that whereas often in seismic geotechnical design it is not realistically feasible to design with ample factor of safety against failure as is done in static design, an “engineering” apparent seismic factor of safety less ...

Keaton J. R. , Mishra S. K. et al.
This report presents a methodology for estimating the time rate of scour and the design scour depth for a bridge founded on rock. The report also includes design and construction guidelines for application of the methodology.

Sheppard D. M. , Demir H. et al.
This report explores recommendations for a predictive equation for equilibrium local scour and a potential equation for predicting scour evolution rates at wide piers and skewed piers. The equations are designed to help provide better estimates of local scour ...

Jahanandish M. , Veiskarami M. et al.
<p>It has been known that soil shear strength parameters are stress level dependent. On the other hand, foundation size has a significant effect on the level of imposed stress on subsoil elements. In this study, the Zero Extension Lines (ZEL) method, which ...

Lagasse P. F. , Clopper P. E. et al.
This report explores guidelines to help estimate the quantity of accumulated, flow event debris, based on the density and type of woody vegetation and river bank condition upstream and analytical procedures to quantify the effects of resulting debris-induced ...
