RESUMO

On April 16, 1994, a major ice jam transformed the main street of Fort Fairfield, Maine, into a river of rushing flood waters and large chunks of ice. The towns's commercial center sits about 100 yards south of the Aroostook River, which, on that day was jammed with ice, sending its waters out into the adjancent floodplains. On the north side of the river, raging flood water and cascading blocks of ice devastated a neighborhood containing about 30 homes and several businesses. The flood recovery effort successfully carried out in the Town of Fort Fairfield offers a model for other recovery initiatives involving local, state, and federal government partnerships. A high degree of independence and skepticism about the federal government exist in rural areas and small towns. A recovery plan or mitigation strategy that is dictated by federal and state agencies is likely to fail. A more appropriate role for federal and state agencies can be to assist local officials and citizens in clearly identifying recovery options and the benefits and costs of each

RESUMO

This paper demonstrates how basic floodplain management-related issues, concepts, and practices can have significant effects on the financial and physical outcome of condemnation cases for public projects. Four case studies will be briefly described from the perspective of floodplain and related environmental issues that affected the final settlements. The actual names of the cases are not being used, since legal appeals may be forthcoming. This paper ilustrates that government agencies and other entities with condemnation powers can be impacted by local floodplain management policies and practices when their projects are within floodprone areas. It also demonstrates the complex interaction of floodplain management with transportation, environmental issues, land development patterns, and property values. In each case, the local floodplain management programs and managers (cities) were involved and impacted by the deliberations and final results of these projects

RESUMO

The results of material tests on the shape memory alloy Cu-Zn-Al are presented and discussed. The results of the material tests are then applied in the design of a structural damper, with Cu-Zn-Al providing the dominant damping force. Different damping designs are examined to determine the best design. The finalized design was then mechanically tested. Seismic Response characteristics of a 2/5 model five story building, with and without added Cu-Zn-Al shape memory dampers are studied experimentally. These results are then compared with the studies of viscoelastic dampers tested on the same model five story building(AU)
