Shallow Foundations on Frozen Soils: A Bibliography
This bibliography, prepared by the Committee on Shallow Foundations, provides a list of current publications on the analysis and design of shallow foundations on frozen soils. The bibliography...

Erosion by Submerged Circular Jets
An experimental study on the erosion of sand beds by impinging submerged circular water jets shows similarities between air-sand system and water-sand system. It is shown that there are...

Method to Predict Ultimate Compression in Clays
A simple two constant hyperbolic equation is proposed to characterize the compression tests and to predict the ultimate compression of clays under an imposed external load. Laboratory...

Membrane Penetration in Triaxial Tests
The possibility of predicting volume changes due to membrane penetration in sands of different grain sizes is explored. It is shown that these changes are influenced by grain size, effective...

Beam-To-Column Web Connection Details
For a beam-to-column web connection where the beam is attached to the column perpendicular to the plane of the column web, the theoretical maximum strength of this beam and column assemblage...

Optimum Membrane Trough
A fluid is contained in an inextensible membrane trough. Due to hydrostatics the shape of the trough is governed by a set of nonlinear differential equations which is solved by perturbations...

Nuclear Waste Management
This Task Committee report to the members of ASCE reviews the current technology and many of the key technical issues concerned with the long-term storage and disposal of high-level and...

Pumped Bentonitic Mixture Used to Seal Piezometers
Methods used to install the bentonite seal and sand-cement grout seal for multi-level piezometers are described. After problems developed in trying to use bentonite pellets to install...

Leachate Collection Design for Containment Landfills
A mathematical model is proposed for use in designing the leachate collection system for containment landfills, specifically with the respect to the spacings of drains, and to ground-water...

Numerical Modeling Study of Lake Pontchartrain
A Hansen-type hydronamical-numerical model is shown to adequately simulate actual wind circulation, water levels, and particulate matter dispersion in Lake Pontchartrain. The model is...

Torsion of Hollow Circular Cylinders with Creep
An exact analysis is presented for the load-deformational behavior of twisting of hollow circular cylinders made of materials that creep. The hyperbolic sine law is used. Curves which...

Pore Pressure Rise During Cyclic Loading of Sands
A new model for the quantitative determination of the pore pressure increase during undrained cyclic loading of saturated loose sands is proposed. The model depends on four parameters...

Hypolimnion Oxygenation Studies in Clark Hill Lake
Discharges from stratified hydroelectric generating impoundments are frequently drawn from the hypolimnin due to the low elevatin of the penstocks. The hypolimnion contains the colder...

Dynamic Response of Plate on Elastic Half-Space
Analytical results are presented for the dynamic response of a plate bearing on an elastic half-space and subjected to harmonic forces. The present work represents a departure from existing...

Plates of Varying Thickness with Four Simply Supported Edges
The methods of double finite Fourier transformation and two Trancendental Functions, Six and Cix, are adopted. A general expression of solution is given for a thin plate of variable thickness...

Wave Spectrum Changes on Sloped Beach
A comparison of all the different approaches to analyze the problem of wave spectrum change on a sloped beach is presented. It is shown how the heuristic, theoretical and numerical formulations...

Prediction of Water Level in Tidal Inlet
A very important and difficult problem is operation of gates at the inlet of tidal lakes in order to control water quality and quantity. The gate operation must sufficiently satisfy both...

Technical Aspects of Metric Construction
The Water and Power Resources Service, formerly the Bureau of Reclamation, has begun construction of a number of major projects using SI metric units. Technical aspects of the design and...

Scheduling: Effective Methods and Techniques
Network planning and analysis (CPM) is a proven means to outline the many activities to be performed and to investigate the feasibility of a given construction project. Commencing with...

Games People Play with Work Sampling
Guidelines and principles are presented for planning and implementing a work sampling program. Principles to be followed include careful planning to fulfill objectives, the need to be...
