Porous Asphalt and Permeable Friction Course Overlays
Porous asphalt typically consists of conventional warm mix asphalt (WMA) or hot mix asphalt (HMA) with significantly reduced fines resulting in an open-graded mixture that allows water...

Pervious Concrete
Pervious concrete consists of a hydraulic cementitious binding system combined with an open-graded aggregate to produce a rigid pavement with typically 15% to 25% interconnected void space....

Mine Voids: What's Down There, Anyway? Characterizing Mine Voids for Civil Construction

Density Tests above Zero Air Voids Line
(Originally published in J. of Geotechnical Engineering, 1989, 115(7), 1003-1018.)...

Nonlocal Integral Formulations of Plasticity and Damage: Survey of Progress
Modeling of the evolution of distributed damage such as microcracking, void formation, and softening frictional slip necessitates strain-softening constitutive models. The nonlocal continuum...

Determination of Void Fabric Tensor of Soils Without Radial Sampling Bias

Sand Structure Differences Resulting from Specimen Preparation Procedures

Intergranular Void Ratio - Steady State Strength Relations for Silty Sands

Mitigation of Void Development under Bridge Approach Slabs Using Rubber Tire Chips
The problem of void development under bridge approach slabs has been correlated to the use of integral abutment bridges (Schaefer and Koch, 1992). This void development then causes settlement...

Initial Fabric and Uniformity of a Sand Specimen - An Image Analysis Approach

Integrated Facility Information Systems: Total Information Access
This paper will attempt to fill the void in computer information handling with regards to facility management information by providing those in the water industry with tips and suggestions...

Design and Construction Considerations in Filling A Void Under the Webber Dam Spillway

Breaking Wave Measurement by a Void Fraction Technique
Breaking of steep surface gravity waves in seas under moderate to strong wind forcing always involves the entrainment of air into the water column below the air-sea interface. As such,...

Application of the Phase Change Process to One-Dimensinal Consolidation Behavior of Peat
In this study, based on the fact that the pore of fibrous peat consists of the macro (outer) pore between organic matters and the micro (inner) pore inside organic matter, an approximate...

Stress and Settlement of Footings in Sand
In current engineering practice, the magnitude of the settlement of a footing in sand, as compared to the settlement of a different size footing in the same sand, is considered to be a...

Void Fraction Measurement Techniques for Gas-Liquid Bubbly Flows in Closed Conduits; A Literature Review
This paper provides a review of void fraction measuring techniques for gas-liquid bubbly flows in closed conduits with emphasis on the suitability of these methods for air-water bubbly...

Alabama DOT Implementation of Hot Mix Asphalt QC/QA Procedures

An Evaluation of the Strategic Highway Research Project Packing Handbook
The objective of this paper is to present the use of the November 8, 1991 SHRP C-206 report entitled `Packing Handbook - A Guide to the Optimal Gradation of Concrete Aggregates'. The purpose...

A Revised Methodology to Minimize Bias in Determining the Porosity and Void Tensor of Particulate Media
Increased recognition of the importance of fabric in the observed response of particulate media under monotonic and cyclic loading has led to the development of new procedures to quantify...
