The Determination of Velocity Spectra and Dissipation by Direct and Indirect Means using Second-Order Accurate PIV
In this paper we present a 2 nd order accurate technique in space (following Wereley & Meinhart's (2001) extension of Cowen & Monismith's (1997) dynamic sub-window PIV...

Interstate Mediation As an Alternative to Litigation: Resolving Illinois' Lake Michigan Diversion Dispute

Spectral Modeling of Nonlinear Wave Shoaling and Breaking over Arbitrary Depths

Surface Motion Above an Arbitrarily Shaped Tunnel Due to Elastic SH Waves

The Law and Practice of Construction Arbitration in the Philippines

A Hydrodynamic FVM Algorithm on Arbitrary Grids
This paper presents a finite volume algorithm for the vertically averaged integral form of the hydrodynamic governing equations on an unstructured grid system. The algorithm is applicable...

ASCE's Role in the Work of the National Construction Dispute Resolution Committee of the American Arbitration Association

An Analysis of Characteristics of Basset Force on Particles Accelerating in Arbitrary Flow Field
In present study of solid-liquid two phase flow, the effect of Basset force on a particle moving unsteadily in a non-uniform flow is not very clear. For this reason, the properties of...

Major Changes to the AAA's Construction Arbitration Rules

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) for Construction: Mediation as a Means of Alternative Dispute Resolution

An Interactive Computer Code for Generations of Artificial Earthquake Records
A new interactive computer code is presented in this work for the calculation of artificial earthquake records that comply with any arbitrarily specified target response spectra or power...

Opportunities and Constraints for the Innovative Geotechnical Contractor

Sandbridge Virginia Oceanfront Seawall Arbitration Hearing: Some Lessons Learned for Coastal Engineers
A group of beach property homeowners claimed that their new oceanfront seawall was defective in design. A beefed-up design cost about $1.3 million more and they sought this amount from...

An Elasticity Solution for a Transversely Isotropic Material Containing a Spherical Shell Under Arbitrary Axisymmetric Loading
A three-dimensional elasticity solution is obtained for a transversely isotropic solid containing an isotropic spherical membrane shell. Perfect bonding is assumed between the shell and...

Slepian Process of a Non-stationary Process
An algorithm for simulating a zero-mean non-stationary Gaussian process over a fixed interval [0,T] with given arbitrary covariance function as well as the associated Slepian model process,...

A Frequency Surface for Rainfall Intensity and Duration
A technique for developing rainfall intensity-duration-frequency surface is presented. With the aid of the Box-Cox power transformation raw data is transformed into a jointly near normally...
