Coal has been a major energy source since the Industrial Revolution. Despite its environmental problems, coal consumption is still growing because of the lack of alternatives such as natural gas and petroleum resources. ...
Adaptation of VISSIM, a dynamic simulation model, to the traffic behavior at intersections in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico
The rapid evolution in the sophistication of microsimulation models has encouraged their use in transportation engineering and planning. Traffic In Towns SIMulation (VISSIM as its acronyms in German) is a microsimulation ...
Seismic analysis of the embedded control tower at Success Dam
This thesis presents the analyses carried out to compute the Dynamic Soil-Structure Interaction (DSSI) effects of the embedded control tower at Success Dam, California. The particular case of the Success Dam in Sacramento, ...
Dynamic properties and seismic response of the cable structures and towers of the Arecibo Observatory
This investigation was requested by the staff of the Arecibo Observatory to determine whether the towers and cables that support the suspended platform are capable of resisting a maximum-credible earthquake in the elastic ...
