Shallow Foundation on Frozen Soils: A Bibliography
This bibliography, prepared by the Committee on Shallow Foundations, provides a list of current publications on the analysis and design of shallow foundations on frozen soils. The bibliography is divided...

Erosion by Submerged Circular Jets
An experimental study on the erosion of sand beds by impinging submerged circular water jets shows similarities between air-sand system and water-sand system. It is shown that there are significant differences...

Circular Wall Jets in Coflowing Streams
The mixing and diffusion of circular turbulent wall jets in coflowing open channel streams is discussed with the ratio of the jet to channel velocity varying from 2 to 30 and the depth of flow being 10...

Method to Predict Ultimate Compression in Clays
A simple two constant hyperbolic equation is proposed to characterize the compression tests and to predict the ultimate compression of clays under an imposed external load. Laboratory consolidation test...

Membrane Penetration in Triaxial Tests
The possibility of predicting volume changes due to membrane penetration in sands of different grain sizes is explored. It is shown that these changes are influenced by grain size, effective containing...

Considerations in the Undisturbed Sampling of Sands
The effect of sampling disturbance on the cyclic strength characteristics of sands is investigated by sampling from deposits of known dynamic characteristics prepared in the laboratory. Push-tube (Hvorslev...

Thermal Front Formation from Buoyant Surface Jets
An explanation is given for the formation of thermal fronts for outfall Froude numbers in the range of F≤ 3.3. It is shown that the homogeneous round jet has a characteristic natural frequency in the range...

Undisturbed Sampling of Saturated Sands by Freezing
From considerations of the basic mechanisms of soil behavior during freezing, it is suggested that undisturbed samples can only be obtained by undirectional freezing with no impedance of drainage while...

Beam-To-Column Web Connection Details
For a beam-to-column web connection where the beam is attached to the column perpendicular to the plane of the column web, the theoretical maximum strength of this beam and column assemblage is reached...

Optimum Membrane Trough
A fluid is contained in an inextensible membrane trough. Due to hydrostatics the shape of the trough is governed by a set of nonlinear differential equations which is solved by perturbations and numerical...

Utilization of Steel Roads as AE Waveguides
The matter of soil covering a steel rod, and of its influence on the wave carrying capability of the rod itself, is addressed. It is found the attenuation values of a soil covered steel rod are intermediate...

Calculation of Trapped Reflective Wave
An increase in reflected wave energy may result where structures are built along a section of coastline with no beach fronting the structure. In certain instances the structures may combine with a steep...

Nuclear Waste Management
This Task Committee report to the members of ASCE reviews the current technology and many of the key technical issues concerned with the long-term storage and disposal of high-level and intermediate-level...

Plane Curved Beam Equations
It is demonstrated that plane curved beam (rectangular cross-section) equilibrium equations can be obtained by reducing the established equations for thin shells. The necessary equations are presented...

Finite Layer Analysis of Nonhomogeneous Soils
A finite layer approach capable of analyzing both layered and continuously varying elastic soil profiles is presented. The technique is shown to be accurate and efficient. It is then used to analyze the...

Pumped Bentonitic Mixture Used to Seal Piezometers
Methods used to install the bentonite seal and sand-cement grout seal for multi-level piezometers are described. After problems developed in trying to use bentonite pellets to install a seal, powdered...

Shock Pressure of Breaking Waves on Vertical Walls
Breaking wave impact on vertical walls is studied experimentally with beaches having four different slopes. It is found that a breaking wave having its front face parallel to the wall at the instant of...

Leachate Collection Design for Containment Landfills
A mathematical model is proposed for use in designing the leachate collection system for containment landfills, specifically with the respect to the spacings of drains, and to ground-water mounding. It...

Numerical Modeling Study of Lake Pontchartrain
A Hansen-type hydronamical-numerical model is shown to adequately simulate actual wind circulation, water levels, and particulate matter dispersion in Lake Pontchartrain. The model is an explicit numerical...

Scattering of Elastic Waves by an Alluvial Valley
Plane strain model for scattering of steady state plane waves by an elastic alluvial valley of arbitrary shape is presented. The valley is presumed to be perfectly bonded to a linearly homogeneous and...
