# Earthquake-Induced Deformations of Soft Clay Slopes

*An existing one-dimensional, non-linear, degrading stress-strain soil model for horizontal sites is extended to mildly sloping sites and a practical procedure to analyze the earthquake-induced...*

New Method for Tidal Current Computation

*The computation of two-dimensional tidal currents using the Alternating Direction Implicit Method (ADI) can be subject to numerical attenuation, parasitic oscillations, and poor reproduction...*

Lateral Stability of I-Beams with Partial Support

*The lateral torsional buckling behavior of I beams with tension flange restraint is described. Tension flange restraint occurs frequently in continuous beams and indeterminate structures....*

Scrubbing Odors from Wastewater Treatment

*A pilot scrubber system using sodium hypochlorite and sodium hydroxide solutions was tested for its effectiveness and the optimal operation conditions when used for removing odors from...*

Shearing Stress due to Prestress in Variable Depth Beam

*General formulas to estimate shearing stress in prestressed concrete beams due to prestress force are given. These equations also can be used to calculate dead load and live load moment...*

Effluent in Trickle Irrigation of Cotton in Arid Zones

*A trickle system was installed in a cotton field to study the effects of effluent quality, emitter discharge and irrigation regime on the yield of cotton. The experiments were conducted...*

Optimum Design of Reinforced Concrete Water Tanks

*The conventional method of designing water tanks is irrational and leads to relatively thick walls with a substantial amount of reinforcement. Application of the limit state method results...*

Application of Cost-Flow Forecasting Models

*Cost-flow models are formulated for forecasting the cumulative cost-flow in housing and public buildings, as a function of total cost and construction period. This permits to estimate...*

Graphical Method of Optimization: A Short Cut

*Although optimization problems are usually solved by computer, argument is presented that simpler cases can be handled by non-computer methods. A new, graphical method based on triangular...*

Hysteresis Models for Reinforced Concrete

*Nonlinear dynamic response of a simple reinforced concrete specimen is studied using five different hysteresis models: the Takeda, elasto-plastic, bilinear, Clough, and the Q-hyst model....*

Beam Idealization

*For any given bemm with varying cross-section and material properties, it is easy to evaluate a number of parameters Q*

_{i}and D_{i},...Probability Based Load Criteria: Assessment of Current Design Practice

*This is the first of two papers that describe a study conducted to develop probability-based load factors and load combinations suitable for use with the loads specified in American National...*

Bayesian Approach to Prototype Testing

*The strength of series-produced structures is uncertain because of modelling error and material parameter uncertainty. By testing of prototypes, information on both uncertainties is obtained....*

Hydrodynamic Effects in Earthquake Response of Embankment Dams

*Utilizing a recently developed analytical procedure, the significance of hydrodynamic effects in the earthquake response of embankment dams is evaluated. Effects of dam-fluid interaction,...*

Models of Landfill Leaching: Moisture Flow and Inorganic Strength

*Mathematical models are applied to the movement and inorganic contamination of moisture in sanitary landfills situated above the water table. The models are based on simple well-mixed...*

Total Suspended Solids in Highway Runoff in Washington State

*During the first year of full-time operation of ten highway runoff monitoring sites in the State of Washington, a total of 241 storms were sampled with a composite sampling system developed...*

Highway Fiscal and Program Management for the 1980s

*The 1980s are a time of rapid change to most transportation agencies in the country—change in a funding base, which has remained essentially stable for the last 60 years, and change in...*

Water Yield Estimation in Western United States

*The mean annual water yield of a watershed is used in the planning, design, and management of some watershed projects, especially those involving irrigation. A statistical analysis of...*

Dilution Analysis for Undirectional Diffusers

*The paper discusses the mixing mechanics of submerged, multi-port diffusers used to discharge heated water from steam-electric power plants into shallow receiving waters. An analysis for...*

Managerial Decisions Under Inflation

*The problems of managerial decision making under inflation are discussed, and some solutions are offered. The risk of estimating under inflation is explained, and a method to improve the...*
