Underground Lunch & Learn Seminar: DMM Stabilization of New Orleans Levees

April 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free. Lunch Provided.

DMM Stabilization of New Orleans Levees The performance of embankments constructed on soft ground is often improved by flattening the side slopes, using lightweight fill, or improving the foundations. Flood protection levees are particularly challenging, as these embankments must have sufficient weight to withstand the lateral forces of impounded water, and their proximity to existing roadways and structures in developed areas restricts the potential for flattening the slopes. In addition, they are often constructed on soft alluvial or coastal deposits…

How dangerous are nuclear crises? What dynamics underpin how they unfold? Recent tensions between North Korea and the United States have exposed disagreement among both scholars and analysts. This talk reconciles these apparently contradictory views by outlining the circumstances in which different models of nuclear crises should be expected to hold. Nuclear crises should be expected to have different dynamics depending on two variables: the incentives to use nuclear weapons first in a crisis, and the extent to which escalation is…
