Atmospheric Corrosion Resistance of Structural Steels
The main objective of this paper is to provide engineers with data on thickness loss of structural steel members resulting from corrosion. To this end, the writers have collected atmospheric...

Impact of Chemically-Induced Clay Transport and Deposition on the Hydraulic Conductivity of a Natural Sand
The purpose of this paper is to understand in part the dynamic impact of surfactants on hydraulic conductivity for designing enhanced pump and treat operations. This paper has two aims:...

Nonionic Organic Solute Sorption to Two Organobentonites as a Function of Organic-Carbon Content
Sorption of three nonionic organic solutes (benzene, trichloroethene, and 1,2-dichlorobenzene) to hexadecyltrimethylammonium-bentonite (HDTMA-bentonite) and benzyltriethylammonium-bentonite...

Larger Foraminifers as Contributors to Carbonate Beach Sands
Larger foraminifers are locally significant contributors to tropical carbonate sediments, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region. The two major factors influencing foraminiferal production...

Amino Acid Geochronology Applied to the Dating of Eolianites on San Salvador Island, Bahamas
Using amino acid racemization data measured on carbonate eolianite sediments, we assess the ability of amino acid geochronology to distringuish among several stratigraphic units on San...

Characteristics and Implications of Relict Carbonate Paleoshorelines
Throughout the Florida-Bahamas region, the accumulation of coastal carbonate deposits, excepting the present highstand, appears to be episodic. Back through time these deposits provide...

Battling Concrete Corrosion
For decades engineers have fought concrete corrosion, but few methods have offered a long-term solution´┐Żuntil now. Electrochemical techniques such as electrochemical chloride extraction...

Muscle Made of Carbon Fiber
Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) extends service life and increases load-bearing capacity when applied to concrete structures. CFRP is less expensive than traditional strengthening...

Dynamic Optimal Groundwater Remediation by Granular Activated Carbon
Objective functions to describe the operating and capital costs of GAC treatment are incorporated into a control theory model for optimal pump-and-treat groundwater remediation design....

Removal of Arsenic From Ground Water Using Granular Activated Carbon
Batch adsorption isotherm studies found that activated carbon (Hydrodarco, 14 X 40 mesh, American Norit) had removals of arsenic as high as 94% for a GAC dosage of 100 g/L and an initial...

Vapor Phase Biofiltration for Removal of VOCs
The selection of an appropriate packing material for the biofiltration process is an important factor in the removal of contaminants from vapor phase. This study evaluates two different...

Specification of Cu, Pb and Cr in Contaminated Sediment Effected by pH
Sediment was sampled from a contaminated river. Sequential extraction was applied to determine the speciations of Cu, Pb, and Cr in the sediment with varied pH (5?9), and the redox potential...

Climate Change: What the North American Water Engineer Should Know
Long-range forecasts of future global warming have been made based on the increase in carbon dioxide and trace gases in the air from human activities. Potential changes which would especially...

Use of NaOH to Control pH for Solubilization of Waste Activated Sludge
Waste activated sludge was collected from the final clarifier of a local municipal wastewater treatment plant. NaOH was used in comparison made of the controlled pH batch experiments with...

Simulating DBP Precursor Transport in Sacramento Delta
Fate and movement of disinfection by-product organic precursors in California's Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta was simulated for a 365-thy period with a hydrodynamics and transport...

Surviving a Layoff
A layoff can happen to anyone in an organization, from an entry level draftsperson or technician up to the President. In these days of budget cutting and downsizing, any day could be your...

Thermal Regeneration of Spent Lithium Hydroxide
Exploration of planetary surfaces will require portable life-support systems to provide a continuous supply of breathable air. These systems will need to be regenerable in order to support...

Utilization of Liquid Carbon Dioxide for Planetary Exploration
The major component of the atmosphere of Venus and Mars is carbon dioxide CO2. This proposal is to use this carbon dioxide for planetary exploration...

Carbon Formation Theory for Space Oxygen Processes
Production of oxygen from the Martian atmosphere or lunar soil and the recovery of oxygen in manned space environments may include carbon formation from CO as a unit process. Thermodynamic...

Active Control of Axial Forces in Beam String Space Frames
The present work discusses a formulation for active control of axial forces of strings in beam string structures to dynamically and/or statically reduce the responses, and proves both...
