Applications of a Two-Equation Turbulence Model to Geophysical Boundary Layers

Theoretical Study on Capture Chamber with Lateral Entrance
A capture chamber with lateral entrance can be used in a pneumatic wave energy conversion system. In this paper, the output power coefficients of the capture chamber have been calculated...

Research and Development of Wave Pump
A new device, 'Wave Pump' is introduced here. The authors present the mechanism of the system, the analytical method for discharge rate, the hydraulic model test...

Double-OWC Wave Power Extractor of a Taut Moored Floating Structure
A double oscillating water column is proposed as a means to improve the efficiency of wave power conversion over a wide range of wave periods in deep water. A mathematical model of the...

Stratified Flows
This volume contains the edited and refereed proceedings of the Third International Symposium on Stratified Flows, convened on February 3-5, 1987 in Pasadena, California. It consists of...

Strengthening Shelter's Resistance Against Penetrating Shells

Optimal Location of Active Controllers Subjected to Seismic Excitation
In the application of structural control to seismic structures certain locations are advantageous for placement of the actuators. These locations reduce the structure's response...

A Comparison of Performances of Various Frictional Base Isolation Systems
The results of a comparative study of the performances of several frictional base isolation devices including the Sliding-Joint, the French System, and the Resilient-Friction isolators...

A Family of Concurrent Algorithms for Transient Finite Element Solutions
We derive a family of methods for solving the equations of motion arising in structural dynamics which makes effective use of the architecture of concurrent computers. The algorithm is...

Fourier Series Expansion on Determination of Response Bound of Beam
Fourier series expansion is suggested to discrete the continuous vibrating system by regarding Fourier constants as generalized displacement parameters. The orthogonal merit to the terms...

Analysis for the Seismic Response of Liquid Containers
An analytical model is presented for the nonlinear response of fluid containers whose bottom may separate from and lift off their foundation, during base excitation. First, the hydrodynamic...

Simulating a Sediment-Laden Three-Dimensional Flow

Contribution of Soil Freeze to Pile Capacity
In order to investigate the magnitude and rate of increase in load capacity for piles installed in clayey soils, a series of load tests were performed at various intervals of time following...

A Two-Layer Hydrodynamic Salinity Model

Convection in the Classroom
By their nature, the empirical relations used to calculate convective heat transfer coefficients offer the user little or no insight into how the typical input parameters, e.g., pipe diameter...

Conducting a Waterline Corrosion Evaluation
A study has been conducted to determine the level of corrosion activity occuring on the U.S. Navy's potable waterlines on Guam. The study evaluated soil parameters including...

Advances in Computational Mobile-Bed Hydraulics
A new conceptual approach to one-dimensional mobile-bed simulation is briefly described, along with two demonstrative examples. The approach is based on fully coupled solution of the unsteady...
