El desborde de la represa de Oroville en California obligó a la evacuación de casi 200 mil personas
Las fuertes lluvias causaron un aumento del nivel del lago artificial y la salida del agua por encima del embalce. Fue activado un aliviadero de emergencia, pero está muy dañado: por eso, las autoridades temen que ceda provocando una corriente que inundaría a las localidades de las zonas más bajas.

This Amazing Amsterdam Tunnel Keeps Bikes And Pedestrians Apart—And Cars Out
A new bike and pedestrian tunnel in Amsterdam runs 361 feet and connects people to the main railway station and to the port, where they can continue by ferry. But its spectacular split design, which clearly cuts the tunnel into two halves according to their usage, is also notable for another reason. Even though it looks—at first glance—as big as a car tunnel, no cars are allowed.

5 Civil Engineering Failures and What They Taught Us
Whether it’s a dam that proves the necessity of better inspection techniques or a famous bridge that just couldn’t stand the wind, the built environment is always showing us that there’s still more to learn. This infographic from Ohio University’s Russ College of Engineering gives us a look at five well-known failures from the past century and what civil engineers learned from these events to ensure that they never happen again

World’s first floating wind farm to be built off scottish coast
The floating wind farm will be built by global energy company Statoil as an industrial-sized, proof-of-concept pilot test for the commercial production of such wind parks. Last year was a record year for wind energy generation in the United Kingdom, and records were set in weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual wind generation measurements, according to the renewable energy trade association RenewableUK.

Puente de características especiales en Singapour
In 2008, the completion of the Marina Barrage in Singapore created an engineered boundary between the sea and the mouths of five rivers. With the construction of the dam, the risks posed by rising tides and flooding in low-lying urban areas ended and the estuary was transformed into a fresh water reservoir that could provide drinking water as needed.

Fallas en presas 4 aspectos por los que se han presentado
Asociación de Geotecnia presentó el Código Geotécnico de Taludes y Laderas de Costa RicaMore than a dozen dams have failed this week in South Carolina amid catastrophic flooding that has destroyed homes and businesses and left more than a dozen people dead. Authorities are warning that additional failures are possible. The ultimate cause is too much rainfall over a short period, but the disaster also points to longer-term problems in infrastructure that are putting thousands of people at risk around the world.

Alcanzando las limitaciones de diseño de TBM bajo el Lago Mead
Alcanzando las limitaciones de diseño de TBM bajo el Lago MeadThe race to complete the Lake Mead deep intake No. 3 tunnel in Nevada, USA, is, put simply, the story of a TBM being pushed beyond its design limitations to get the job done before the desert city of Las Vegas, quite literally, runs dry. Peter Kenyon of TunnelTalk speaks to Vegas Tunnel Constructors Project Manager Jim Nickerson for the contractor, and South Nevada Water Authority Project Manager Erika Moonin for the client, about an extreme drive through worse than anticipated ground under hydrostatic pressures that have so far reached 15 bar.

Photos: See the Progress on NYC’s Long-Awaited 2nd Avenue SubwayFor New Yorkers, the Second Avenue Subway is something of a punchline, an accepted local synonym for “when pigs fly.” It’s easy to see why: City officials have been talking about a second line on Manhattan’s East Side since the 1920s, and the construction has been delayed so many times that former man-in-charge Michael Bloomberg says he’s got a 50-50 shot at living to see it open (he’s 72)..
