Scattering of Elastic Waves by Sub-Surface Topographies

Cavity Expansion in a Dilatant Geological Material

Cavitation at Rigid Boundary by Tensile Pulses
Closed form solutions are obtained for the size and location of the cavitation bubbles caused by travelling tensile pulses in liquid otherwise at rest and reflecting at a rigid surface....

Housing Construction in Areas of Mine Subsidence
Many areas in the United States are underlain by abandoned mines and many more areas will be undermined in the future. As mine cavities collapse they cause settlement and ground distortions...

Expansion of Cavities in Sand

Engineering Geologic Classification of Coralline Deposits

Optimization of Pump Turbines
For the purpose of optimizing pump turbines installed in pumped storage plants with regard to efficiency, cavitation, and excavation costs, a method of computation has been devised which...

Induced Sinkholes: An Engineering Problem
Induced sinkholes are those related to man's activities, whereas natural sinkholes are not. Induced sinkholes are divided into two types: those resulting from a decline in...

Time-Dependant Behavior of Solution Caverns in Salt
Creep finite-element analyses of several solution caverns in rock salt were performed to study the long-term behavior of such caverns. The effect of cavern shape (height-to-diameter ratio)...

Modeling Cavitation for Closed Conduit Flow
A portion of a model study is discussed which describes an experimental procedure for determining four cavitation limits and how to evaluate and adjust for scale effects. The item tested...

Stresses Around Spherical and Cylindrical Cavities in Shear Dilantant Elastic Media

Dallas College Features Load-Bearing Brick Cavity Walls
A unique concept in masonry design and construction was developed for the Brookhaven College campus in Dallas, Texas. Centering on the use of prefabricated reinforced brick panels and...

Cavitation Induced by Turbulence in Stilling Basin
It is shown by simple arguments that is stilling basins, intense turbulence of flows could produce conditions favorable to cavitation. A free hydraulic jump occurring in a stilling basin...

Reflection and Refraction at Subsonic Velocities
The reflection and refraction of elastic waves involving cavitation at a fluid-solid boundary is analysed for subsonic speeds of the bubbles. It is found that unlike the supersonic case,...

Viscoelastic Inclusion Problem
The paper is concerned with a variety of inclusion problems that arise in the study of the quasi-static response of anisotropic viscoelastic materials. It is shown that the use of Stieltjes...

Static Deformation of Rock
The nonlinear deformation of rock and the hysteresis in stress-strain curves carried through a complete loading-unloading cycle is shown to be due to the cracks which are found in most...
