Plane Periodic Flow Predictions for Fusiform Aneurysms
Pathological bulges or dilatations of an artery are found in a variety of forms at diverse locations in the vasculature. In this paper, unsteady flow solutions in a two-dimensional wavy...

Some Characteristics of Unstable Flow Past Slots
Analysis of flow instability reveals that, as a result of fluid-dynamic feedback, flow fluctuations in the vicinity of slots (or cavities) may occur within narrow-band dominant frequencies...

Contact Problems for Solids Containing Cavities
An integral transform solution is presented to treat the non-axisymmetric indentation problem of a punch in contact with a semi-infinite solid containing a stress-free cylindrical cavity....

Cavitating Flows—Flow Effects on Structures Supercavitating Machinery Fluid Machinery Design
The papers presented in these proceedings represent a variety of disciplines from many countries. This unique jointing of three major societies has created a collection of papers with...

Final Report of the Task Committee on Branching Conduits
The purposes of investigations on branches are basically to determine energy losses; pressure fluctuations including cavitation; and the relation of hydraulic losses to structural considerations...

Cavitation Correction

Polymerization of Concrete Fights Cavitation
The techniques and materials used for the repair of concrete are many and varied. The repair at Dworshak Dam utilized epoxy resins, dry pack mortar, fibrous concrete and a new technique,...

Induced Oscillations of Liquid Jet-Gas Cavity System
This investigation studies the basic liquid jet-gas cavity interaction, accounting for compressibility, frequency and amplitude of jet oscillation, and fall characteristics of the undisturbed...

Steady Stratified Circulation in a Cavity
An attempt is made, by introducing empirically defined, depth-dependent expressions for eddy diffusivity and eddy viscosity into the governing equations for two-dimensional behavior, to...

New Diver-Operated Bedload Sampler
A scuba-diver-operated sampler allows accurate measurement of bedload discharge. The new device is a portable pit-type sampler, which is pushed into the streambed by a diver. The sampler...

Fibrous Concrete Repair of Cavitation Damage
Libby Dam is a high head concrete structure on the Columbia River System. After moderate usage, one of the sluices (low level outlets) developed severe cavitation damage. The concrete...

Cavity Expansion in Sands with Curved Envelopes
The effect of a curved Mohr-Coulomb failure envelope on the bearing capacity of deep foundations in sands is considered by obtaining solutions to expansion of cavity problems. An analytic...

Unsteady Stratified Circulation in a Cavity
A transient two-dimensional model with idealized topography (i.e., cross section of a rectangular lake) is examined using numerical models. The primary results define the behavior of the...
