Design of Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes By Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: List Price: $59.95 $50.96 You Save: 15%
Ships in 3-5 business days
This manual is the reference text used for the FHWA NHI courses No. 132042 and 132043 on Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes and reflects current practice for the design,... More > construction and monitoring of these structures. This manual was prepared to enable the engineer to identify and evaluate potential applications of MSE walls and RSS as an alternative to other construction methods and as a means to solve construction problems. The scope is sufficiently broad to be of value for specifications specialists, construction and contracting personnel responsible for construction inspection, development of material specifications and contracting methods. With the aid of this text, the engineer should be able to properly select, design, specify, monitor and contract for the construction of MSE walls and RSS embankments.< Less
Avoiding The Slippery Slope: Conducting Effective Interventions By Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College, Thomas R. Mockaitis
Paperback: $19.97
Ships in 3-5 business days
This Letort Paper covers U.S. military interventions in civil conflicts since the end of the Cold War. It defines intervention as the use of military force to achieve a specific objective (i.e.,... More > deliver humanitarian aid, support revolutionaries or insurgents, protect a threatened population, etc.) and focuses on the phase of the intervention in which kinetic operations occurred. The analysis considers five conflicts in which the United States intervened: Somalia (1992-93), Haiti (1994), Bosnia (1995), Kosovo (1999), and Libya (2011). It also reviews two crises in which Washington might have intervened but chose not to: Rwanda (1994) and Syria (2011-12). The author examines each case using five broad analytical questions: 1. Could the intervention have achieved its objective at an acceptable cost in blood and treasure? 2. What policy considerations prompted the intervention? 3. How did the United States intervene 4. Was the intervention followed by a Phase 4 stability operation? and 5. Did Washington...< Less
Micropile Design and Construction Guidelines: Implementation Manual By Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: List Price: $49.95 $44.96 You Save: 10%
Ships in 3-5 business days
The use of micropiles has grown significantly since their conception in the 1950s, and in particular since the mid-1980s. Micropiles have been used mainly as elements for foundation support to resist... More > static and seismic loading conditions and less frequently as in-situ reinforcements for slope and excavation stability. Many of these applications are suitable for transportation structures. Implementation of micropile technology on U.S. transportation projects has been hindered by lack of practical design and construction guidelines. This manual is intended as a "practitioner-oriented" document containing sufficient information on micropile design, construction specifications, inspection and testing procedures, cost data, and contracting methods to facilitate and speed the implementation and cost effective use of micropiles on United States transportation projects.< Less
