Transverse Forces on Vertical Tube Array in Waves
In a wave tank test with a vertical array of tubes the inline and transverse forces on small instrumented sections of the tubes were measured. The transverse forces on them and the total...

Computer Design of Landfill Methane Migration Control
Computer programs for the design of methane migration control systems around sanitary landfills are described. These programs allow the effectiveness of individual designs to be evaluated...

Modified Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Beams
A method for analyzing reinforced concrete beams and beam-columns is developed, and the analytical results are compared to experimental data obtained by other investigators. The present...

Resistance of Beauharnois Canal in Winter
The flow in an ice-affected river can be calculated using the open-water Chezy equation and ignoring the presence of ice if a corrective coefficient for Chezy's C is introduced...

Simulation of Large-Scale Circulation in Harbors
A numerical model capable of simulating vertically-integrated tidal circulations in a harbor area for a substantial long period of time has been applied to the Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbor....

Heat Loss from Rapid Infiltration Basin in Winter
A method to estimate heat losses from a rapid wastewater infiltration basin under winter operation is developed. The analysis is theoretical and considers two modes of operation, one with...

Beam-to-Column Connection Research in Japan
Present status of the research on the beam-to-column connection in Japan is reviewed. The design philosophy of beam-to-column moment connections of steel building frames under the unique...

Investigation of Failures
The problems associated with determining what actually happended after an unexpected instability has occurred are illustrated by case records. Examples are taken from failures of cut slopes...

Scattering of SH Waves by Subsurface Topography
Horizontally polarized shear waves in an elastic alluvial valley of arbitrary shape perfectly bonded to a linearly elastic, homogeneous and isotropic half space are considered. The valley...

Torsional Dynamic Response of Solid Media
A new, practical method is proposed for solving the partial differential equations describing the dynamic behavior of either linear elastic or nonlinear inelastic multi-dimensional continua....

Stochastic Model of Incipient Sediment Motion
A stochastic model of incipient sediment motion is developed. The probability of incipient motion, the life distribution of stationary particles, the number distribution of particles in...

Beams, Frames and Shells on Elastic Foundations
Explicit stiffness matrix, present matrix and nodal forces are used as a basis for computer analysis of beams, rings, simple frames, and branched shells of revolution on a three-parameter...

Hot-Film Response and Digital Analysis in Bubly Flows
Hot film responses in bubbly flows are analyzed for the development of a digital analysis technique. It is shown that hot-film anenometry and digital data analysis techniques can be excellent...

Three-Dimensional Slot Jets
A comparison between a momentum flux analysis and data for slot jet of limited aspect ratio is described for one set of consistent data. It is shown that an analytic model, based on the...

Mapping Landslide Hazards in Forest Watersheds
A physically realistic methodology is presented for estimating and mapping landslide hazards for watersheds. This methodology also considers the variability of the controlling factors....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
