Speedy Backfilling for Old Mines
In November 1992, the U.S. Bureau of Mines, in cooperation with the Office of Surface Mining (OSM), used two recently-developed pneumatic backfilling devices to completely fill an abandoned...

Factors Influencing Passive Pullout Resistance

On the Influence of Seismically Induced Residual Forces on Bridge Abutment Design
The seismic design of bridge abutments depend on the anticipated movement of the abutment during the design earthquake. For seat-type abutments in which the backfill resistance can be...

Backfill-Stiffened Foundation Wall Construction

Numerical Analysis of Frost Shields
The term 'frost sheilding' has been used to describe the practice of using flat stock rigid insulation materials burial above a water or sewer pipe to reduce...

Flowable Fill - A Solution to Pipe Backfilling Problems

Performance of a Welded Wire Wall with Poor Quality Backfills on Soft Clay

Rocky Mountain Project Seepage Cutoff in Solutioned Limestone
The right abutment of the main closure dam for the Rocky Mountain Project required extensive treatment of deeply weathered shale and solutioned limestone to assure control of seepage and...

Diffusion Barrier Transport Properties of Unsaturated Paintbrush Tuff Rubble Backfill
Diffusion coefficients (D) were experimentally determined in unsaturated tuff gravel to evaluated the effectiveness of tuff gravel and rubble as a diffusion barrier to ionic transport...

Efficient Early Lunar Excavation Machine

Behavior and Design of Gravity Earth Retaining Structures
This paper summarizes recent research on the soil-structure interaction of gravity earth retaining structures and provides new design procedures for these structures. The procedures currently...
