Structures Congress 2007
The Congress' technical program was designed with the practicing structural engineer in mind while maintaining a rigorous standard for the academic presentations. Topics include:...

Torsion of Reinforced Concrete -A Historical Overview
The story of torsion of reinforced concrete must start with the French professor, C. L. Navier. In his landmark book (Navier, 1826) he rigorously derived the first rational theory for...

Detailing and Design Examples for Torsional Members
The nature of the internal force flow in a concrete member subject to torsion brings about both longitudinal and transverse force components. The resulting tension brought about by the...

Application of Water Column Dampers to Control Motions of the Wall Centre, Vancouver
The Wall Centre, a 450 foot tall high-rise tower currently under construction in downtown Vancouver will be the highest building to be constructed in that city. Wind tunnel testing indicated...

Control of Wind Response of the Trump World Tower
The Trump World Tower is a luxury residential building located on 1st Ave. and 48th St. in New York City,...

Scalar Properties of Transversely Isotropic Tuff from Images of Orthoganol Cross Sections

Using Digital Topo Maps for Hydraulic Modeling

How Spacing of Cross-Section Surveys Affects Understanding of Variability in Channel Hydraulic Geometry

Channel Stability Assessment for Flood Control Projects
This manual provides assistance for determining potential channel instability and sedimentation effects in flood control projects. It is intended to facilitate consideration of the type...

Final Covers for Solid Waste Landfills and Abandoned Dumps
This book presents the essential elements for the design of final covers for solid waste landfills and abandoned dumps. Chapter 1 gives an overview and presents selected aspects of regulations...

Application of High-Resolution Schemes to Free Surface Flows in Irregular Channels
A 1-D flow model employing a high resolution scheme based on the Total Variation Diminishing concept is applied to non-prismatic channels of irregular cross-section. The hydraulic properties...

Optimal Geometric Shape of a Surface Aeration Tank
This paper presents the results of a laboratory investigation on three cross-sectional shapes—square, rectangular and circular of surface aeration tanks, without any baffles, to find out...

Simulation of Regional Ground-Water Flow on a Transboundary Flowline; Trans-Pecos, Texas and Chihuahua, Mexico
A two-dimensional, steady-state, cross-sectional model was used to evaluate boundary conditions, residence times, and potential transboundary movement along a 28 mi (45 km) flowline between...

Channel Junction Effects in Channel Network Flow Simulation
In this paper, the momentum equations, which are applicable at channel junctions, are suggested based on the conservation of momentum flux. In the equation, the lateral inflow angles are...

Entrainment of Eggs and Larval Fish into Propeller Jets
Because larval fish have limited mobility and eggs have no mobility, both are susceptible to entrainment into the propeller jets of passing vessels. Entrainment subjects eggs and larvae,...

Optimal Sizing of Width- and Depth-Constrained Trapezoidal Channels
Open-channels are often designed based on the assumption of uniform flow and normal depth. If a channel is to be lined with a nonerodible material, the dimensions of the channel can be...
