Recent Assessment and Decontamination Studies of Contaminated Sediments in the New York/New Jersey Harbor

Settlement of Dynamically Compacted Deposits
This paper compares predicted and measured settlements of deposits that were densified by means of dynamic compaction. Settlement records are presented for sites consisting of old, midage,...

A Symbol-form Mapping Framework for Conceptual Design Support
Engineering design involves a strong notion of the geometric structure of design artifacts. Research efforts to support the geometric aspects of design have concentrated on the representation...

Natural Decay Resistance of Glued-Laminated Beams
The natural decay resistance of untreated Douglas-fir heartwood specimens sampled from glued-laminated beams was evaluated using a modified agar plate test modeled after the European Standard...

Plain flooding: near field and far field simulations
The paper deals with the problems met in the attempt of simulating the plain submersion produced by a levee breaking in the inertia dominated region (near field), scaling with the typical...

Decay of Random Waves on Non-Monotonic Profiles
A model is presented to calculate the decay of random waves in the surf zone with special focus on non-monotonic profiles. A wave-by-wave approach is employed to derive a model that requires...

Nonlinear Decomposition of a 2-D Wave Field
Based on an understanding of nonlinear wave interaction in dual component wave, a new numerical scheme allowing for hybrid wave-mode modeling has been developed. in the hybrid wave-mode...

Trenchless Diversity Fuels Growth of Construction Activities
This paper describes a variety of trenchless technology methods of reconstructing America's decaying pipeline infrastructure by using minimum and /or 'no-dig processes'. The decay of our...

Three-Dimensional Variable Resolution Hydrodynamic and Transport Modeling of the Chesapeake Bay System
This paper describes a domain decomposition methodology used in the application of the three-dimensional environmental fluid dynamics code, EFDC, to model hydrodynamics and transport in...

WAPPA Modeling of Post-Emplacement Performance of the AECL HLNW Package
Environment Canada (EC) is anticipating, in the near future, a review of the EIS document released by AECL which addresses the performance of their HLNW disposal concept. This paper presents...

Mixing Character and Meandering Mechanism of a Plane Jet Bounded in a Shallow Water Layer
A plane jet in a shallow water layer is characterized by the jet width b1/2 much larger than the water depth h at large downstream distances x/h...

The Analysis of Repository-Heat-Driven Hydrothermal Flow at Yucca Mountain
To safely and permanently store high-level nuclear waste, the potential Yucca Mountain repository site must mitigate the release and transport of radionuclides for tens of thousands of...

Optimal Processor Mapping for Massively Parallel Finite Element Computations
The exploitation of massively parallel computer for finite element analysis requires efficient usage of processors as well fast speed. For example, the efficiency of a parallel matrix...

Parallel-Adaptive Finite Element Analysis on a Transputer Cluster
This paper describes a parallel-adaptive finite element approach on a parallel transputer cluster of the MIMD type. The analysis is controlled by a special error indicator. In comparison...

Production and Decomposition of Spartina patens in a Degrading Coastal Marsh
Production and decomposition rates were calculated for Spartina patens in a mesohaline coastal marsh in Louisiana. Production was estimated to be 800 g m-2 ur-1 during 1991 and 1,696 g...

Velocity Downstream of a Submerged Pipe Outlet
The velocity downstream of a submerged pipe outlet was examined in time and space. A model study was performed to examine the influence of boundary roughness changes on the velocity dissipation....
