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...

Simulation of Multi-Dimensional, Multi-Variate, Non-Gaussian, Homogeneous Stochastic Fields with Applications to Soil Liquefaction

Effects of Soil Nonhomogeneity on SASW Testing

Permafrost Formation and Aggradation in a 23-m High Homogeneous Dyke: A Case-Study

Homogenization Techniques for Modelling of Randomly Packed Granules

Finite elements for limit analysis of homogenized block masonry walls

Selecting Tower Cranes
Looming over the skyline like steel dinosaurs, tower cranes can look deceptively similar. But these beasts of burden are not a homogenous species, and selecting and positioning the right...

Thermal Response in Antenna Under Laser Irradiation
This investigation focuses on the thermal response of two objects under medium-intensity continuous-wave (CW) laser irradiation: (1) a homogeneous slab and (2) a complex electronic component,...

Homogeneity Tests Based Upon Gumbel Distribution
This paper analyzes the performance of three homogeneity tests for Gumbel distributed flood flows. The classic Dalrymple test, a method-of-moment Cv test, and a normalized-quantile test...

Treatment of Nonhomogeneous Terms in Flow Models
A study of the relative significance and treatment of nonhomogeneous terms in unsteady open-channel flow simulation models has been conducted. The effects of nonhomogeneous terms including...

Step Pool Geometry and Flow Characteristics in Low-Sediment-Storage Channel Beds
Data from two small ephemeral streams in Israel indicate that step pool geometry in bedrock channels is similar, in its salient features, to that in alluvial channels. For steep (>0.10)...

Probabilistic Characterization of Droughts
The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) uses a set of meteorologic and hydrologic variables to create a numerical value for drought severity. The index values are grouped into drought...

Mountainous Precipitation Estimation Using Multivariate Statistical Analysis and Geographic Information Systems
Using rotated principal component analysis (PCA), unique, orthogonal spatial patterns of daily and monthly precipitation on a well-instrumented, mountainous watershed in Idaho (USA) were...

A Homogeneous Equilibrium Model for Analysis of Spent Fuel Shipping Containers
Transportation of nuclear spent fuel is inevitable over the coming years. However, in order to ensure the safety of such transport, computational models must be established, which are...

An Application of Nonhomogeneous Poisson Process in Sediment Infiltration Into Gravel Bed
The compound homogenous Poisson process (CNHPP) model (Shen & Todorovic, 1971 ) is found applicable in sediment infiltration into gravel bed due to the unsteady and nonuniform...

Condition Data Reduction for Pavement Management
A methodology is proposed for the identification of uniformly behaving deterioration regions of infrastructure facilities. Such `homogeneous' regions constitute the basic units that should...

Hydrologic Regionalization Using a Homogeneity Test
A framework is presented for a regionalization method with a region of influence (ROI) approach. The methodology explicitly incorporates a homogeneity test in the process of selecting...
