Re: pier design

James,

The URL for ASCE is

http://www.asce.org

The direct URL to the search engine is

http://www.pubs.asce.org/cedbsrch.html

It consists of abstracts and bibliographies.  I use it to search on-line for documents and then check with the local
university library to find out if they have the reference.  It's good for finding obscure references.
