Inertially Favorable Trajectories for Robot Motion in Space
Robot manipulators generally display non-linear coupled dynamic forces which increase with speed. Efficiencies can be achieved by finding trajectories which take advantage of those inertial...

Reliability of Light-Gage Metal Joist Hangers
Limit state design equations are formulated to assess the reliability of light-gage metal joist hangers using the results of experimental studies. The design equations are calibrated against...

Some Aspects of Determination of Pile Capacity by the Wave Equation
This paper presents some new observations made during correlation study of pile capacity computed by wave equation analysis with failure load from static test. In order to determine proper...

Dynamic Analysis of Unstable Structural Systems With Prescribed Velocities
Structural systems that have large inextentional deformation, or in other words, deformation without stain are called 'Unstable Structural Systems.' They include cable structures, membrane...

A New LAX-WENDROFF Algorithm to Solve the Bed Continuity Equation With Slope Effect
The numerical simulation of mobile bed evolutions of seas, estuaries and rivers requires a morphological model, including the effects of waves, currents and sediment transport, as well...

Observations Related to the Use of the Sigma Coordinate Transformation for Estuarine and Coastal Modeling Studies
One of the common techniques used in application of time-dependent, three-dimensional models addressing estuarine and coastal environmental problems is the sigma coordinate transformation....

Tributary Loading with a Terrain Following Coordinate System
The modeling of physical processes that occur in a tributary between the farthest downstream gage and the lake interface can help to improve the predictive capabilities of Great Lakes...

An Energy Based Model for Coastal Bays and Lakes
The North American Great Lakes have numerous tributary bays and small lakes along their coastline that open directly to the Great Lakes through natural or engineered channels. As a consequence...

Conservation Properties of the Mild Slope and Boussinesq Equations
Common water wave evolution equations, such as the mild slope equation, parabolic approximations and Boussinesq equations, are approximate statements of conservation laws. A feasible measure...

Nonlinear Decomposition of a 2-D Wave Field
Based on an understanding of nonlinear wave interaction in dual component wave, a new numerical scheme allowing for hybrid wave-mode modeling has been developed. in the hybrid wave-mode...

Evaluation of Depth-Limited Wave Breaking Criteria
Numerous criteria exists for predicting incipient wave breaking. These criteria were verified with a limited number of data sets or under limited number of data sets or under limited beach...

Wave Runup on and Wave Reflection from Coastal Structures
Wave runup and wave reflection are two of the most important, easily quantifiable variables that influence the design of coastal structures. Unfortunately there are very few comprehensive...

A Second-Generation Wave Model for Coastal Wave Prediction
A second-generation numerical wave model, WINDWAVE, has been developed for wave prediction in coastal regions. The modal is based on the numerical integration of the energy balance equation...

Nonlinear Effects on Wave Envelope and Phase
The representation of second-order random waves is examined in terms of the effect of second-order nonlinearities on the wave envelope and phase. Theoretical expressions describing the...

Spectral Boussinesq Modelling of Breaking Waves
Random waves passing over a shallow bar are considered, in particular the amplification of bound harmonics in shoaling water, their subsequent release in deepening water, and the role...

ASA.WAVES: An Interactive PC-based Wave Forecasting Tool
An interactive PC-based system for wave refraction-diffraction in coastal regions has been developed, based on a Mild-slope equation finite element wave model. The system includes an embedded...
