Welded and Bolted Beam-to-Column Connections
For many years research on welded and bolted beam-to-column connections has been carried out in The Netherlands, with particular emphasis on those connections which cannot transmit the...

Pressure Distribution Design for Septic Tank Systems
Pressure distribution of septic tank effluent in subsurface soil absorption systems is gaining in popularity. This method of effluent distribution has the advantage over other methods...

Creep of Pipes Under Axial Force and Bending Moment
The load-deformational behaviour of a thin-walled circular cylinder in the presence of axial force is studied. Based on the small deformation theory, an exact analysis is presented for...

Finite Element Method for Interface Problems
A method for incorporating interface discontinuities in a finite element analysis of discontinuous media is presented. For computational purposes the procedure is implemented into the...

Short Line Change Estimates Neat Oarai, Japan
To estimate the shoreline changes near the Port of Oarai when the groin was built, the field observations were done and the characteristics of the coast were investigated. A present shoreline...

Ultimate Strength of Gapped Joints in RHS Trusses
A theoretical and empirical analysis is presented for the ultimate static strength of gapped joints in welded Rectangular Hollow Section trusses having one compression bracing member and...

Nature of Wave Attenuation in Open Channel Flow
The identification of the term or group of terms which will cause a free-surface flow to dissipate is investigated. It is shown that wave attenuation is caused by the interaction of the...

Seismic Behavior of Moment Connections and Joints
The behavior of moment connections and beam-column joints in moment resisting steel frames subjected to severe earthquakes is studied. The cyclic inelastic deformation capacities of different...

Evaluation of Selected Initial Dilution Models
A number of mathematical and computer models are currently available to calculate initial dilution of treated wastewater effluent discharges into the ocean. This paper presents a comparative...

Columns with Semirigid Joints
The influence of realistic semi-rigid end restraint on the strength and behaviour of real steel columns is investigated. An analytical procedure is developed which includes the effects...

Transverse Forces on Vertical Tube Array in Waves
In a wave tank test with a vertical array of tubes the inline and transverse forces on small instrumented sections of the tubes were measured. The transverse forces on them and the total...

Computer Design of Landfill Methane Migration Control
Computer programs for the design of methane migration control systems around sanitary landfills are described. These programs allow the effectiveness of individual designs to be evaluated...

Resistance of Beauharnois Canal in Winter
The flow in an ice-affected river can be calculated using the open-water Chezy equation and ignoring the presence of ice if a corrective coefficient for Chezy's C is introduced to take...

Simulation of Large-Scale Circulation in Harbors
A numerical model capable of simulating vertically-integrated tidal circulations in a harbor area for a substantial long period of time has been applied to the Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbor....

Heat Loss from Rapid Infiltration Basin in Winter
A method to estimate heat losses from a rapid wastewater infiltration basin under winter operation is developed. The analysis is theoretical and considers two modes of operation, one with...

Beam-to-Column Connection Research in Japan
Present status of the research on the beam-to-column connection in Japan is reviewed. The design philosophy of beam-to-column moment connections of steel building frames under the unique...

Investigation of Failures
The problems associated with determining what actually happended after an unexpected instability has occurred are illustrated by case records. Examples are taken from failures of cut slopes...

Beams, Frames and Shells on Elastic Foundations
Explicit stiffness matrix, present matrix and nodal forces are used as a basis for computer analysis of beams, rings, simple frames, and branched shells of revolution on a three-parameter...

Three-Dimensional Slot Jets
A comparison between a momentum flux analysis and data for slot jet of limited aspect ratio is described for one set of consistent data. It is shown that an analytic model, based on the...

Mapping Landslide Hazards in Forest Watersheds
A physically realistic methodology is presented for estimating and mapping landslide hazards for watersheds. This methodology also considers the variability of the controlling factors....
