Application of the BEM to Elastodynamics in a Three Dimmensional Half Space
The boundary integral equations (BIEs) are formulated for scattering problems of elastic waves by a cavity or a crack in a three dimensional half space. Two formulations based on the Green's...

Explosive Loading of Surface Ships
This paper describes the recent development of numerical methods which have accurately predicted the response of surface ships subjected to underwater explosion tests. The technique couples...

Inservice Diagnostic Monitoring of Turbine Vibrations and Cavitation

The Design, Analysis and Manufacturing of Pickwick Landing Replacement Runners
This paper presents new computer automated techniques for the design, analysis and manufacture of Kaplan turbine blades. The inlet flow field was determined using the finite element program...

Hydraulic Machines Model Acceptance Tests
The article begins with a description of the modern test installations, giving the dimensions of the models most frequently used and the head heights. Attention is then given to the most...

Snow Management Practices for Increasing Soil Water Reserves in Frozen Prairie Soils
It is demonstrated that stubble management practices can be used to increase snowcover accumulations in the Canadian Prairies. However, the potential for significant increasing soil water...

Three-Dimensional Simulation of a Buoyancy-Driven Cavity Flow
The preliminary results of a numerical investigation of natural convection flow in a three-dimensional cavity heated from below are presented. The transient three-dimensional simulation...

Behavior of Cavity Masonry Walls Under Out-of-Plane Lateral Loading: An Analytical Approach
In this paper, a finite element model is used to analyze cavity walls in an attempt to understand their complex behavior and to evaluate the adequacy of the assumptions embodied in the...

The Simple-Pile Approach to Pile Installation in Clays
This article describes the fundamentals of the approach and presents solutions for the effects of quasi-static deep undrained penetration of a simple solid pile on the deformations and...

Avoiding Cavitation Damage to Hydraulic Structures
Cavitation damage often may be avoided by not allowing cavities to form. Where boundaries are not deeply submerged, their shape must be exactly correct, irregularities must be very small,...

Cavitation in Various Types of Shear Flow
Cavitation in turbulent shear flow depends on the intensity and spectral characteristics of the pressure fluctuations in a Lagrangian frame of reference as well as depending on the concentration...

Cavitation Inception from Cylindrical Holes
The inception of cavitation due to circular holes in a boundary is studied. Laboratory experiments were conducted to define limited cavitation as a function of the hole depth to diameter...

Prototype Studies of Corps of Engineers Structures Experiencing Cavitation Damage
A number of Corps of Engineers structures have sustained damage caused by the occurrence of cavitation. The damage has varied from slight pitting to severe erosion. The damage has occurred...

Aeration is the Solution for Sluice Cavitation Damage at Libby Dam, Montana
Cavitation has severely damaged two of the high-head flood control sluices. The damaged areas were immediately patched; however, these patches were not considered a solution to the problem....
