    • Analytical Tools for Resilience of Lifeline Highway Bridges to Tsunami Events 

      Scott, Michael H. (2018)
      Extreme tsunami events in the 21st century, particularly the 2004 Indian Ocean and 2011 Great East Japan events, have put the vulnerability of coastal transportation infrastructure to tsunamis at the front of bridge ...
    • Behavior of Drilled Shafts with High-Strength Reinforcement and Casing 

      Stuedlein, Armin W.; Li, Qiang; Arduino, Pedro; Ganji, Abbas (2015)
      Drilled shafts provide significant geotechnical resistance for support of highway bridges, and are used throughout the States of Oregon and Washington to meet their structural foundation requirements. Due to changes in ...
    • Competitive State-of-the-Art Structural Engineering 

      Hjortstorp, Daniel P. (2015)
      The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) steel bridge team had an exceptional year, largely due to the chemistry of the team and to financial backing at all levels. The team won the regional competition and placed ninth ...
    • High-Performance Bridge Systems for Lifeline Corridors in the Pacific Northwest 

      Eberhard, Marc O.; Stanton, John F.; Tran, Hung V.; Stephens, Max T.; Lehman, Dawn E.; Roeder, Charles W.; Barbosa, Andre R.; Trejo, David; Link, Tim; Nielson, Drew; Mazarei, Vandad (2015)
      This report contributes to the development of three key strategies for increasing the seismic resilience of bridges, accelerating their construction, extending their lifespan, and decreasing life-cycle costs. The strategies ...
    • Rural Bridge Safety: Evaluation of Atypically Large Farm Vehicles 

      Ibrahim, Ahmed; Skinner, Laura (2018)
      The Pacific Northwest region has no data on the assessment and recommendations on rural bridge design and safety subjected to Farm Vehicle (FV) loading. The proposed study will determine how different types of FVs with ...
    • SSI-Bridge 2: Soil-Bridge Interaction During Long-Duration Earthquake Motions 

      Mason, H. Benjamin; Carey, Trevor J.; Barbosa, Andre R. (2015)
      Subduction zone earthquakes are characterized by their large magnitudes, which produce many cycles of strong ground shaking, and thus, long-duration earthquake motions. The Pacific Northwest is prone to subduction zone ...
