  • Loukidis, Dimitrios; Salgado, Rodrigo; Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Zhang, Yanbei (Korea Geotechnical Society, 2022-06-20)
    Simulation of pile driving is frequently used in present design practice to study pile drivability and to estimate pile static capacity based on driving data. The accuracy of both drivability analysis and static resistance ...
  • Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Wartman, Joseph (Korea Geotechnical Society, 2022-06-20)
    Landslides are a major hazard in Lebanon due to the country’s rugged topography and its setting in a region of high seismicity and high rainfall intensity. The situation is further exasperated by rapid expansion in urban ...
  • Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Appelhans, Nadine; Carlow, Vanessa Miriam; Mumm, Olaf; Murad, Majd; Schroder, Boris; Trapp, Jan Hendrik (2022-06-16)
    Cities worldwide are being confronted with perpetual economic challenges, flows of migration, and increasing vulnerability to the consequences of global changes. Within contemporary urban lines of conflict, the ‘open city’ ...
  • Matar, T.; Chehade, F. Hage; Harb, J.; Rahhal, M.; Abdel Massih, D. Youssef; Abdallah, C.; Ibrahim, E.; Khalaf-Keyrouz, L.; Nasr, G.; Abou-Jaoude, G.; Sursock, A. (National Technical University of Athens, 2022-06-16)
    The slope of Dahr El Baidar located on the central mountain of Lebanon hosts a section of the Arab Highway that is under construction to connect Beirut to neighboring Arab countries. This slope has experienced several ...

    During the early hours of November 30th, 2015, the mountain town of Kfarnabrakh experienced a major landslide at one of the town’s rock cliffs. Kfarnabrakh is 1,150 meters above the sea level, 45 km south-east of Beirut, ...
  • Loukidis, Dimitrios; Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Salgado, Rodrigo; Zhang, Yanbei; Bisht, Vibhav (ASTM International, 2022-06-14)
    Driven piles are commonly used as foundation elements in engineering projects. Due to their simplicity, pile-driving formulas have been widely used in practice to estimate static pile capacity based on observations made ...
  • Kaafarani, Rouba; Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Wartman, Joseph; Tawk, Miriam (2022-06-10)
    Landslide susceptibility mapping has been done using statistical and physically-based assessment techniques with limited focus on mode-specific models to identify failure modes and runout patterns. Because each failure ...
  • Pollock, William; Wartman, Joseph; Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Grant, Alex (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2022-06-09)
    Quantitative landslide risk assessment is a key step in creating appropriate land use policies. The forced migration of those displaced by recent events in Syria has highlighted the need for studies to guide humanitarian ...
  • Salgado, R.; Loukidis, D.; Abou-Jaoude, G.; Zhang, Y. (2022-06-09)
    Drivability studies and determination of pile static capacity from driving resistance are an integral part of present foundation engineering practice. The success of both pile driving simulations and back-calculation of ...
  • Pollock, William; Grant, Alex; Wartman, Joseph; Abou-Jaoude, Grace (2022-06-09)
    Quantitative landslide risk analysis is a key step in creating appropriate land use policies. However, regional scale landslide hazard and risk studies are traditionally based on a single, infinite-slope style of failure, ...
  • Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Mumm, Olaf; Carlow, Vanessa Miriam (2022-06-09)
    Rising complexities and uncertainties have emphasized the need to employ scenario thinking in urban design and planning. While different scenario methods have been widely used across disciplines, a comprehensive review of ...
  • Pollock, William; Wartman, Joseph; Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Grant, Alex (2022-06-09)
    Quantitative landslide risk analysis is a key step in creating appropriate land use policies. The forced migration of those displaced by recent armed conflict in Syria has highlighted the need for studies to guide humanitarian ...
  • Hernandez, S.; Skerget, L.; Ravnik, J. (WIT Press, 2021-11-04)
    Previous Scale-Resolving Simulation studies of flow over urban-like obstacles uses Large Eddy Simulation and course grids to reduce computational cost. However, the coarser the mesh the more reliance on the subgrid scale ...
  • Issa, Johnny; Saliba, Najib; El Cheikh, Amina (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2021-11-02)
    Heat transfer and fluid flow in a channel with an array of pin fins is numerically investigated using a finite volume approach. Rectangular pin fins with circular cross sections are used in this investigation. The working ...
  • El Cheikh, Amne; Jacobi, Anthony M. (Purdue University, 2021-11-02)
    Frosting occurs on heat exchangers in heat pumping and refrigeration applications when the surface temperature of the heat exchanger is below the freezing point of water. The accumulation of frost on the heat transfer ...
  • ElCheikh, A.; Elkhoury, M.; Kiwata, T.; Kono, T. (2021-07-13)
    Orthopter-type Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (O-VAWT) are energy capturing devices which are suitable for micro-generation in urban areas. This paper aims to study the effect of number of blades (solidity), Aspect Ratio (AR), ...
  • ElCheikh, Amne; ElKhoury, Michel (2021-07-13)
    Numerical simulations are crucial for fast and accurate estimations of the flow characteristics in many engineering applications such as atmospheric boundary layers around buildings, external aerodynamics around vehicles, ...
