This book addresses the seismic design and retrofit of bridges. It provides detailed information on the seismic considerations in the design of a wide range of substructures including beam and slab, box girder, arch, cable, stayed, and suspension bridges. Topics include damage and design philosophy, geotechnical considerations, design, modeling and analysis, seismic assessment and retrofit of existing bridges.

The purpose of this book is to give a theoretical and practical introduction to seismic-while-drilling by using the drill-bit noise. This recent technology offers important products for geophysical control of drilling. It involves aspects typical of borehole seismics and of the drilling control surveying, hitherto the sole domain of mudlogging.For aspects related to the drill-bit source performance and borehole acoustics, the book attempts to provide a connection between experts working in geophysics and in drilling.There are different ways of thinking related to basic knowledge, operational p

This book presents information that can be used for the design and operation of wastewater treatment plants that utilize biological nutrient removal processes, i.e., processes that utilize biological mechanisms instead of chemical mechanisms, to remove phosphorus and nitrogen from wastewaters. The book presents: basic fundamentals, concepts, and theories; design of prefermentation units, various types of BNR systems, and secondary clarifiers; retrofitting conventional activated sludge plants; modeling considerations; and special considerations for BNR systems.

Seismic Design for Architects shows how structural requirements for seismic resistance can become an integral part of the design process. Structural integrity does not have to be at the expense of innovative, high standard design in seismically active zones.* By emphasizing design and discussing key concepts with accompanying visual material, architects are given the background knowledge and practical tools needed to deal with aspects of seismic design at all stages of the design process * Seismic codes from several continents are drawn upon to give a global context of seismic design * Extensi

Seismic Loads: Guide to the Seismic Load Provisions of ASCE 7-05 provides authoritative explanations of the seismic provisions offered in Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-05. With clear, concise language Seismic Loads illustrates the key concepts and guides structural engineers in applying the most current thinking in this rapidly changing discipline into the design of new structures. The book offers more than 20 detailed examples that analyze specific provisions of the standard and demonstrate the application of the provision in evaluating the seismic load
