Potential Flow over Weirs of Moderate Curvature

*A review is given of some salient studies of critical flow over round-crested weirs, in particular Lenau's extension of Matthew's results. The basic equations...*

Volatilization of Organic Compounds from Streams

*Mass-transfer coefficients for the volatilization of ethylene and propane were correlated with the hydraulic and geometric properties of seven streams, and predictive equations were developed....*

Parametric Approach to Wave Forecasting

*The prediction of wave characteristics generated by variable winds under fetch- and duration-limited conditions is considered using a parametric approach and a simplified form of the radiative...*

Temperature Effects: Methane Generation from Landfill Samples

*The objective of this investigation was to study the impact of temperature variations on the rate of methane generation from solid waste. The temperatures investigated ranged from 21°C...*

Equal Volume Stack Sampling Methodology

*An air pollution sampling methodology, involving varying point locations determined to be representative of equal annular volumes, is developed for the case of uniform flow profiles. Results...*

Municipal and Industrial Water Demands of Western U.S.

*Municipal water requirements are directly related to population whereas industrial demands are related to the level and type of industrial activity. The emphasis on domestic energy production...*

Crack Growth in Fiber-Reinforced Materials

*Engineering models for initiation of crack growth, crack arrest, and the effective fracture toughness of fiber reinforced materials are developed. Emphasis is placed on brittle matrix...*

Financial Analysis under Inflation in Construction

*The stated value of main items in the financial reports of a construction company does not reflect correctly under inflation their actual value. This introduces a considerable difficulty...*

Control of Snow and Ice in Hokkaido, Japan

*The Hokkaido Islands are marked by a cold climate despite being low in latitude; as a result, snow, ice, sea ice and freezing of ground have caused disaster in large numbers. Members of...*

Vadose Zone Permeability Tests: Unsteady Flow

*Saturated-unsaturated flow models are used to simulate transient conditions in four soils during constant head borehole infiltration tests in the vadose zone. Infiltration rate varies...*

Thermal Fronts in Heated Water Discharges

*Large scale, periodic motions known as thermal fronts, which are observed in surface, heated water discharges were investigated in a laboratory model. Characteristic length scales corresponding...*

Effect of Abandoned Roles on Capacity of Wedge Bolts

*Seventy, 5/8-in. diameter wedge anchors were tested in direct pull-out to determine the effect of various configurations of unused holes and different treatments of these holes on pull-out...*

Bedload and Size Distribution in Paved Gravel-Bed Streams

*Field data are used to study the size distribution of bedload in paved gravel-bed streams. Similarity analysis yields the results that all grain size ranges are of approximately equal...*

Suspension Bridge Response to Multiple-Support Excitations

*The earthquake-induced vertical response of suspension bridges when subjected to, correlated or uncorrelated, multiple-support excitations is analyzed by means of random vibration theory....*

Recreational Travel: Gasoline Shortages and Price Increases

*An empirical study utilizes visitation data from a number of recreational attractions in California to estimate the reduction of travel due to the gasoline price increases that occurred...*

Calorific Value of Wastewater Plant Sludges

*Calorific values of wastewater plant sludges are best determined using an oxygen bomb calorimeter, an apparatus which is not readily available in many plants. Using a variety of sludges...*

Beams Under Lateral Projectile Impact

*The influence of transverse shear effects, rotary inertia and the boundary conditions on the dynamic behavior of rigid perfectly plastic beams subjected to projectile impact at midspan...*
