Numerical Decomposition of Eulerian Residual Circulation in Long Island Sound

Demonstration of the Wes New York Bight Hydrodynamic Model in Long Island Sound
Recently, a three-dimensional numerical hydrodynamic model of the New York Bight developed by the Waterways Experiment Station was applied to the Long Island Sound subregion, using NOAA's...

Computer Modelling of Comminuting Granular Media
Using generalized continuum mechanics, generalized damage theories for granular materials in comminution processes are proposed. The generalization is accomplished by treating the average...

The Use of SCADA for Real-time Calculation and Monitoring for CT Compliance at the Ralph D. Bollman Water Treatment Plant
The contra Costa Water District (CCWD) of Concord, CA was formed in 1935 under the authority of the State Water Code. CCWD purchases its water supply from the Central Valley Project (CVP),...

Performance of Wick Drains Installed by Vibration
Settlement and piezometer data from construction of fills on Route I-291 in South Windsor, CT is analyzed for total settlement and coefficient of consolidation. The results are compared...

Development of Long-Term Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamics in Long Island Sound for Use in Water Quality Modeling
The Blumberg-Mellor (1987) three-dimensional hydrodynamic model has been adapted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Ocean Service (NOS) to provide hydrodynamic...

Investments in the Future
The projects that earned the 1994 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Awards of Merit were improvements to the nations transportation and environmental infrastructures. On the outskirts...

Concrete over the Connecticut
The existing Baldwin Bridge carrying I-95 across the Connecticut River between Old Lyme and Old Saybrook, Connecticut, constructed in 1948, is functioning at maximum capacity with modern...

Meshing Computer Technologies
A growing number of clients, especially state DOTs, are requesting computer-aided design (CAD) documents in a specified format, leaving consulting firms to wonder how many different CAD...

Banking on a Bridge
Completing the geotechnical design for the approach embankments and foundations for the Charter Oak Bridge, which crosses the Connecticut River between Hartford and East Hartford, Conn.,...

Coastal America: Northeast Coastal Strategy
The Northeast Regional Implementation Team of the national Coastal America effort has focused its efforts on the restoration of constricted tidal marsh systems. The disposal of dredged...

Using Geophysical Data to Assess Scour Development
The development of scour holes in the Connecticut River near the new Baldwin Bridge has been documented by comparing geophysical records collected before (1989), during (1990), and after...

Field Testing of Advanced Maintenance Data Acquisition Technologies in Three State DOTs
Field testing and evaluation of advanced data acquisition technology in Maryland, Connecticut and Arizona showed the potential for state highway agencies to improve existing procedures...

Connecticut I-95 Incident Management System
Strategies for minimizing the impact of freeway incidents on traffic flow/congestion are reffered to as 'incident management'. The incident management process involves the following: reducing...

Computer-Aided Liability
Civil engineers are using computers more than ever to help them streamline analysis and design, boost productivity and cut costs. Often they rely on mass-marketed software such as Autodesk...

Bonded Tendon Debate
Bonded tendons—currently banned in bridge construction in the United Kingdom because of corrosion concerns—are getting a bum rap, says the author. Corrosion protection details of most...

Load Testing of Permanently Cased Drilled Shafts Founded in Hartford Shale
The axial and lateral load testing of three, 30 inch (76cm) diameter, permanently cased drilled shafts is analyzed herein. The prototype shafts were founded in (or on) Hartford Shale bedrock,...

A feasibility study for a Concrete Core Tomographer
This is a study of the feasibility of applying computer tomography in the study of concrete cores. A laboratory protocol is presented for testing concrete cores using a medical - grade...

Characterization of Granular Material Composite Structures Using Computerized Tomography
The behavior of particulate composites such as asphaltic concrete is controlled by microstructural features including particle and binder arrangements, interparticle contacts, and changes...

Computerized Tomographic Analysis of Fluid Flow in Fractured Tuff
The purpose of this summary is to demonstrate the usefulness of X-ray computerized tomography to observe fluid flow down a fracture and rock matrix inhibition in a sample of Bandelier...
