Air-Water Flow in Coarse Granular Media
Air may be entrained in the flow in porous shore structure under wave action. Three conceptual models for two-phase flow in ducts have been adapted to describe flow in coarse granular...

Engineering and Reverse Discrimination
The engineering community during the past few years, after considering the status of various minority groups in engineering, has recommended affirmative action educational procedures to...

Studies of Pressure of Energy of Standing Waves
In light of prominent needs of practice, great attention in the Soviet Union is concentrated on investigation of standing waves. Numerical values of irregular wave action on a rigid vertical...

Defining the Wave Climate for a Harbor

Experimental Studies of Beach Scour Due to Wave Action

ASCE's Guidelines for Participation in Public Affairs Activities Four Years Later
During the four-year period since the original guidelines were published, certain significant trends emerged in the United States. A heavy recession set in, accompanied by an ever increasing...

Nearshore Wave Direction Gage
Bow wave formation can cause large variation in peak water level around a thin circular pile in shallow-water waves. The symmetry of this variation might be used to measure wave direction...

Affirmative Action Toward Equal Opportunity
An employer does not satisfy his obligation to discriminate against minorities merely by hiring some of them. He must go further and see to it that those he hires are either qualified...

Instrumentation for Wave Induced Pore Pressures

Statement of Affirmative Action Principles
It becomes increasingly obvious that the number of minorities and women in engineering is far below any reasonable proportion to their percentage in our population, and recent statistical...

Minority Programs for ASCE
ASCE has established a Committee on Minority Programs (COMP), in its Professional Activities Division. This results from local activities around minority employment and discussions about...

Overview of the Health Care Services Industry
The ultimate measure of any worthwhile national health policy is equity. That is, does the entire nation have equal access to equivalent resources. This is truly a both noble and desirable...

Irregular Wave Action on Rubble-Mound Breakwaters
An investigation was undertaken to compare the effect of regular and irregular waves on a rubble-mound breakwater model. During the experiments water depth, breakwater, and wave characteristics...

Regular Wave Effects on Walls Made of Cylinders
This paper presents the results of wave action on walls made of closely spaced cylindrical cells 10m to 20m in diameter with both vertical and chamfered superstructures. In these tests...

Testing Sediment Movement due to Wave Action
The development of laboratory equipment to simulate the water particle motion at the sea bed due to wave action is described. Essentially, it oscillates a block of water horizontally in...

Response of Offshore Structures to Random Wave Forces
Response of offshore structures to random wave action is presented. A theory for evaluating the response of these structures in deep water is described by the linear wave theory and the...

Harbor Study for San Nicolas Bay, Peru
A pair of ducted impeller current meters, one mounted vertically and the other horizontally, were used to measure wave action at San Nicolas Harbor, Peru. The horizontal water velocity...

Beach Behavior, North Shore, Long Island Sound
Artificial beaches along the north shore of Long Island Sound demonstrated significant natural patterns of beach behavior. Wave action produced slopes of about 1 in 10 between low water...

Wind Variation and Sprinklers Water Distribution
The superimposed distribution pattern of a moving sprinkling lateral is not equal to that of a solid set employing the same sprinklers, whenever wind variations occur between positions...

Consideration of Torsional Moment in Design of a Floating Structure
Experimental and analytical results were combined to develop a torsional moment spectrum for a semi-immersed rectangularly shaped prism (draft-water depth) = 0.25. Incident wave patterns...
