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...*

Circular Wall Jets in Coflowing Streams

*The mixing and diffusion of circular turbulent wall jets in coflowing open channel streams is discussed with the ratio of the jet to channel velocity varying from 2 to 30 and the depth...*

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...*

Considerations in the Undisturbed Sampling of Sands

*The effect of sampling disturbance on the cyclic strength characteristics of sands is investigated by sampling from deposits of known dynamic characteristics prepared in the laboratory....*

Thermal Front Formation from Buoyant Surface Jets

*An explanation is given for the formation of thermal fronts for outfall Froude numbers in the range of F≤ 3.3. It is shown that the homogeneous round jet has a characteristic natural frequency...*

Undisturbed Sampling of Saturated Sands by Freezing

*From considerations of the basic mechanisms of soil behavior during freezing, it is suggested that undisturbed samples can only be obtained by undirectional freezing with no impedance...*

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...*

Utilization of Steel Roads as AE Waveguides

*The matter of soil covering a steel rod, and of its influence on the wave carrying capability of the rod itself, is addressed. It is found the attenuation values of a soil covered steel...*

Calculation of Trapped Reflective Wave

*An increase in reflected wave energy may result where structures are built along a section of coastline with no beach fronting the structure. In certain instances the structures may combine...*

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...*

Plane Curved Beam Equations

*It is demonstrated that plane curved beam (rectangular cross-section) equilibrium equations can be obtained by reducing the established equations for thin shells. The necessary equations...*

Finite Layer Analysis of Nonhomogeneous Soils

*A finite layer approach capable of analyzing both layered and continuously varying elastic soil profiles is presented. The technique is shown to be accurate and efficient. It is then used...*

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...*

Shock Pressure of Breaking Waves on Vertical Walls

*Breaking wave impact on vertical walls is studied experimentally with beaches having four different slopes. It is found that a breaking wave having its front face parallel to the wall...*

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...*

Scattering of Elastic Waves by an Alluvial Valley

*Plane strain model for scattering of steady state plane waves by an elastic alluvial valley of arbitrary shape is presented. The valley is presumed to be perfectly bonded to a linearly...*
