Tree failures due to strong winds in urban areas cause extensive direct and indirect economic and environmental loss, including disrupting adjacent infrastructures, such as buildings, underground pipelines, roads, and overhead powerlines. To effectively improve the resilience of a community subjected...

 

Mitigating congestion at urban traffic system intersections following major hazards and incidents is a crucial step to maximize the evacuation, rescue and recovery efficiency and prevent a hazard from turning into a disaster. An optimized traffic signal design strategy can effectively contribute to maintaining...

 

Precipitation-induced landslides pose risks to humans through property damage, disruption of infrastructure, injury, and loss of life. These risks may be altered by climate change, as changes in vegetation cover and associated root cohesion might lead to a change in areas susceptible to landslides. We...

 

Bridge scour evaluations are often performed using streamflow estimates from regional regression relationships. This approach relies on the accuracy of the relationships and does not consider the effects of flow variations. Alternatively, a complete hydrograph can be obtained from a watershed model and...

 

For decades, work zone traffic safety under adverse weather conditions has been a serious concern for drivers and transportation agencies. Natural hazards often cause disruptions on roads and bridges and work zones during the retrofitting process. Existing studies on work zone traffic safety with statistical...

 

Several approaches are presented that allow for a direct path of image-to-analysis for the mechanics of structures using a combination of structure-from-motion (SFM) and the finite element method. Through these methods, conventional computational methods can be applied to models created from digital...

 

The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of commercially available polymer soil stabilizers in expansive soil swell reduction relative to quicklime and Class C fly ash. A survey of state departments of transportation within the Mountain-Plains region of the United States (Colorado...

 

Urban traffic networks consisting of partially blocked roads often need to remain open to traffic before, during, and after disasters because of their vital roles to hazard preparation, emergency response, and recovery of urban communities. Conducting effective traffic planning of disrupted transportation...

 

An efficient and timely rescue of injured people by emergency medical services (EMS) is essential to saving as many lives as possible following disasters. Disrupted traffic networks due to the failures of transportation infrastructure (e.g., bridges) following major disasters like earthquakes affect...

 

Green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) is increasingly used to reduce stormwater input to the subsurface stormwater network. This work investigated how GSI interacts with surface runoff and stormwater structures to affect the spatial extent and distribution of roadway flooding and subsequent effects on...
