Meeting increasing demand, promoting conservation methods and complying with new water quality standards pose special challenges for major urban water supply systems.
AD Hoc COMMITTEE ON COASTAL ZONE BUILDING CODES OF THE BSCES WATERWAY, PORT, COASTAL & OCEAN ENGINEERING TECHNICAL GROUP
Residential and small commercial structures must be designed to withstand static flood water level forces, hydrodynamic velocity forces and high winds in coastal areas.
JON GUERRY TAYLOR
Formulating much-needed codes and standards for marina and coastal structure design requires the cooperative efforts of public agencies, engineers, building officials, legislators and insurers.
Models and approaches to applying the concept of mixing zones to the coastal zone require further refinement in order to meet water quality standards for resource areas.
DOMENIC E. D’ERAMO & RODOLFO MARTINEZ
Developing a transportation plan involves reviewing alternatives to determine which best meet transportation needs, are technically & environmentally sound & reflect community goals.
ANDREW F. MCKOWN
Simple, practical techniques can be used to minimize potential damage from close-in blasting by minimizing the effects of elastic ground vibrations & non-elastic ground deformations.
GEORGE W. HARTNELL, III, & ANDREW F. MCKOWN
A refitted tunnel boring machine can operate effectively in hard, high-strength igneous rock, offering cost and time savings and reduced potential for vibration damage and complaints.
Changes in transportation policy, as well as how that policy is perceived, require a transportation system that utilizes intermodalism & new technologies & that offers choice.
