The first book on the subject written by a practitioner for practitioners. Geotechnical Instrumentation for Monitoring Field Performance Geotechnical Instrumentation for Monitoring Field Performance goes far beyond a mere summary of the technical literature and manufacturers’ brochures: it guides readers through the entire geotechnical instrumentation process, showing them when to monitor safety and performance, and how to do it well. This comprehensive guide: * Describes the critical steps of planning monitoring programs using geotechnical instrumentation, including what benefits can be achieved and how construction specifications should be written * Describes and evaluates monitoring met...
Field and design engineers in power distribution describe practical experience in maintaining power distribution systems and in extending their power handling capacity. Cost and long-term economic factors of power line maintenance are discussed.
Field and design engineers in power distribution describe practical experience in maintaining power distribution systems and in extending their power handling capacity. Cost and long term economic factors of power line maintenance are discussed. Safety of maintenance and of failures are the design issues considered.
Electrical Transmission Line and Substation Structures: Structural Reliability in a Changing World compiles contemporary solutions to structural issues in the electrical transmission industry. This proceedings contains 36 papers presented at the 2006 Electrical Transmission Conference held in Birmingham, Alabama from October 15-19. With the latest applied methodologies, solutions, and case studies, this practical book provides technical approaches for challenging projects and solutions for unique problems.
Papers from a September 2002 conference detail recent research in design loads, structural reliability, structural analysis, structural design, foundations, facility life extension, lifeline criteria, and line capacity. Some topics include structural reliability-based design of utility poles, extrem
