Engineers inspect a portion of a New Orleans floodwall damaged in Hurricane Katrina

American Society of Civil Engineers geotechnical-team members inspect a portion of the floodwall along the Industrial Canal that was overtopped and flattened by Katrina's storm surge. The force of the storm shattered much of the concrete wall that topped the steel sheet-piles.

Ocean-buoy generators promise to convert the movement of waves into energy.

Ocean-buoy generators, like the one illustrated here, promise to convert the movement of waves into energy. Voltage is induced when waves cause coils located inside the buoy to move relative to the magnetic field of the anchored shaft. This process generates electricity.
