    Crashes of heavy trucks with bridge columns are random events with low probability of occurrence. In spite of the low odds, previous collision events have resulted in catastrophic partial or full collapse of bridges. AASHTO-LRFD Bridge Design Specifications requires bridge columns to be designed for collision loads to prevent bridge collapse under such extreme events.

    Concrete infrastructures in cold areas such as South Dakota tend to experience early deterioration that is mostly triggered by steel corrosion. The corrosion is initiated by chloride penetration through cracks in the concrete. Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is known to be a good alternative to conventional concrete in cold areas due to its enhanced durability and resistance to crack development.

    Roadside barriers are the primary structural safety devices on surface roads. They can be made from any material as long as they can absorb the energy involved in an impact scenario. One material that has that potential is Ipe, which is a hardwood material that has relatively high strength compared with common structural woods.

That's fluid that needs to be replenished as soon as possible. Sweating and weight loss during a work day or a workout is a natural process, but you must replenish both the fluid and the nutrients lost for your body to adapt and recover.
