Very Long-Term Care of Mechanically Stabilized Earth Berms: Limiting the Liability of Future Stakeholders
Since their development over 50 years ago, civil engineering applications of mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) berms have significantly increased. When used as a component of an asset...

Design of High Soil Berms Over Soft Soils: An Update

Headcut Analysis for Off-Channel Gravel Pits in Arid Environments
The study focuses on a large gravel pit located adjacent to the Santa Cruz River between the confluences with the Rillito and Canada del Oro rivers in Tucson, Arizona. These gravel pits...

Berm Breakwaters—Design, Construction and Monitoring
The philosophy of the fieldwork of Berm breakwaters was applied in Iceland. A few case histories were described with emphasis on quarry investigations, design, construction and monitoring....

St. George Habor—Berm Breakwater Construction Considerations
During the period 1984-1987 three berm breakwaters with a total length of approximately 800 meters were constructed at St. George Harbor on St. George Island in the Pribil of Chain of...

Saving Saluda
One of the largest roller-compacted-concrete berms in the United States will stand sentinel in case South Carolina's Saluda Dam undergoes liquifaction in response to strong...

Dual Benefits
When the Port of Houston needed to be dredged to accommodate larger commercial vessels, engineers decided to put the dredged material to use to create wetlands and islands that will serve...

Added Protection
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is modifying the 335 ft (102 m) high Casitas Dam in Ventura County, California, to withstand a magnitude 6.9 earthquake. The modification includes strengthening...

Sims Bayou: The Public Speaks—The Corps Listens
After about ten years of coordinating, planning, engineering, and design, advertising the first construction contract for the Sims Bayou flood control project was only months away. At...

Wave Attenuation at the Mobile Stable Berm
This paper describes work examining the ability of submerged berms to `filter' certain erosive wave energy while allowing accretionary type waves to pass unhindered. Analysis of wave data...
