Pile Response to Lateral Spread: A Benchmark Case

Benchmarking the Preproject-Planning Process

Generalized Object Control and Assembly for Space Robots
This paper presents a Generalized Object Control framework which subsumes Unified Motion/Force Control and Object Impedance Control. Under this framework new forms of assembly primitives...

Engineering R&D Strategy
Accurate data on the levels and focus of U.S. civil engineering-related R&D are important to establish a benchmark from which a knowledge base can be constructed; to highlight...

Denitrification Inhibition by High Nitrate Wastes
The adaptation of activated sludge and inhibition of denitrification at high nitrate concentrations was studied using pH controlled bench-scale sequencing batch reactors (SBRs), operated...

Spectral and Parametric Wave Models of Lake Erie
The GLERL-Donelan parametric wave model and the SHALWV spectral wave model are presently being used as modules of the Great Lakes Forecasting System in order to determine which best fits...

Stress Wave Loading of a Tunnel: A Benchmark Study
Five different finite element or discrete element computer codes were used to solve a sequence of problems leading to the problem of stress-wave loading of a circular tunnel in a jointed...

Biodegradation Studies of Saudi ARabian Crude Oil
A bench-scale aerobic microbial degradation study of soil contaminated with Saudi Arabian crude oil was conducted. The effects of nutrient additions and seeding with naturally-occurring...

The Role of Benchmark Problems in Slope Stability Computations

A Benchmark Slope Stability Study

Comparison of Some Importance Sampling Techniques in Structural Reliability
The approximate calculation of structural reliabilities by FORM/SORM is well known. Nevertheless, alternatives or at least methods with which the error by these methods can be quantified...

Verification of Approximate Methods of Structural Analysis
Sophisticated computer programs for the determination of the effects of instability on the inelastic stress resultants in steel structures will appear to be 'black boxes'...

Benchmark Problems for Shape Optimization in Plane Stress or Strain
The purpose of this paper is to bring to the attention of engineers and researchers who are working with finite element shape optimization techniques, the closed-form solutions for a unique...

Optimization Study of a Leachate Treatment System
A treatability study was conducted to evaluate the need for a metal precipitation and an ammonia stripping process in a leachate treatment system and to evaluate the biological nitrification...

Interruption of Sewer Crown Corrosion—Ecological Solutions
Competitive inhibition of acid production by thiobacilli was investigated by encouraging the growth of potential competitors. Two-organism competition experiments (Thiobacillus sp. vs....

Biological Methods for Air Decontamination: Modeling Hydrocarbon Removal
Bench-scale tests indicate biofilter treatment of gasoline and diesel with activated carbon support media is first order, while removal of ethanol on compost is zero order. Treatment of...

Trihalomethane Control: A Case Study
Controlling trihalomethanes (THMs) has been an important part of many utilities' water treatment programs since THMs were first regulated in 1979. The increased disinfection...

Stress Computations for Nearly Incompressible Materials
Computation of stresses by the finite element method (FEM) in the case of nearly incompressible isotropic elastic materials is discussed. It is shown that for moderately high Poisson's...
