Enhancement of Caisson Capacity by Micro-Fine Cement Grouting--A Recent Case History--

Model Tests on Caissons
Laboratory tests were conducted on model caissons to better understand the settlement/deflection behavior of open ended caissons on sandy soil, with embedment depth, caisson diameter,...

Scale Effect on Impulsive Wave Forces and Reduction by Submerged Breakwater

Preliminary Characterization of Materials for a Reactive Transport Model Validation Experiment
The geochemical properties of a porous sand and several tracers (Ni, Br, and Li) have been characterized for use in a caisson experiment designed to validate sorption models used in models...

Development of the Long Caisson Type Vertical Breakwater
The width of the caisson of a breakwater is calculated based mainly on the wave force expected to act on the caisson. IN this calculation, the assumed wave force is the peak wave force...

Development of the Double Cylinder Caisson Breakwater
A double cylinder caisson breakwater was recently developed to create a calm sea area in deep and high wave open sea areas. In order to confirm some subjects on design method and construction...

The Influence of Exposed Footings on Pier Scour Depths
Data compiled from past test efforts are combined in this article with the results of two new flume test studies. The combined material, presented graphically, suggests a method for adjusting...

Investigation of Corners and Joints Applied to a Steel-Concrete Composite Caisson
We have developed a caisson composed of steel-concrete composite slabs and steel structures, which we call a `Hybrid Caisson.' We studied the structural principles and usability of the...

A Centrifuge and Analytical Study to Evaluate Suction Caissons for TLP Applications in the Gulf of Mexico
This paper documents the results of a combined centrifuge and analytical study to evaluate the behavior of steel suction caissons under loading and soil conditions typical of deepwater...

Execution and Evaluation of High Capacity Caisson Load Tests in Glacial Deposits
As part of the Boston Harbor clean up project, the new 1,000 mgd Deer Island Sewerage treatment plant includes ten 240 feet high egg-shaped 'residuals' tanks. Contract documents called...

The Caisson Solution
Detroit is expanding its wastewater treatment plant to drastically reduce combined sewer overflows. The expansion, however, is being done on an extremely congested 4 acre tract of land...

The 1984 Major Rehab of the Muskegon Harbor, MI South Breakwater: An Extreme Example of Misguided Design of a Stone Structure
It can be inferred from the Shore Protection Manual that the stability of any coastal structure is increased in proportion to the weights of the armorstones. The south breakwater at Muskegon...

Experimental Study of Adfreeze Heaving of Augered Caisson Footings
In order to establish the required depth of augered caisson-type footings in cold regions and their optimal design against adfreeze heaving, an experimental field investigation has been...

Analysis of Solute Transport in an Intermediate-Scale Unsaturated Flow Experiment
A simplified stochastic model was derived and applied to two unsaturated flow experiments conducted in an intermediate-scale caisson. Parameters for the flow and transport models were...

Development of L-Block Type Composite Breakwater Armored with Wave-dissipating Concrete Blocks

Field Experiment of a Wave Power Extracting Caisson Breakwater
The Ministry of Transport of Japan (MOT) is currently developing a fixed-OWC wave power converter called a wave power extracting caisson. This device can be used as caissons for composite-type...

Field Verification Experiment of a Wave Power Extracting Caisson Breakwater
The Ministry of Transport in Japan is conducting a field verification experiment of a wave power converter with a vertical breakwater called the wave power extracting caisson breakwater....

Heat Development and In-Situ Strength of Large Diameter Caissons Made with High-Strength Concrete
The test program essentially consisted of casting two prototype caissons using two different high-strength concretes, measuring internal caisson and adjacent soil temperatures, extracting...

World's Largest Caisson
The world's largest caisson (210,000 cy) forms the offshore cable anchorage for the 1,870 ft main span Tokyo Harbor Bridge. The bridge carries Metropolitan Expressway Route...
