Sea Defence System at Herne Bay, England
This paper reviews the investigations carried out into the design of the proposed now sea defences fronting the central area of Herne Bay on the North kent coast. The existing defences...

Mitigation of Harbor Caused Shore Erosion with Beach Nourishment Delayed Mitigation, St. Joseph Harbor, MI
St. Joseph Harbor MI. was the first Corps of Engineers Section 111 erosion-mitigation project to be built. Between 1 Jun 76 and 5 Aug 85, about 1,067,000 cy of fine sand was placed in...

Design of Protective Dunes at Dam Neck, Virginia
Dunes act as a primary coastal defense against inundation in the Netherlands and the Dutch Government has devoted considerable effort towards development of reliable procedures for the...

Dutch Experience on Design of Dikes and Revetments
The increased demand for reliable design methods for protecting structures has resulted in The Netherlands in preparing a set of design guidelines for design of dikes and revetments. The...

Sandbridge Virginia Oceanfront Seawall Arbitration Hearing: Some Lessons Learned for Coastal Engineers
A group of beach property homeowners claimed that their new oceanfront seawall was defective in design. A beefed-up design cost about $1.3 million more and they sought this amount from...

Retrofitting a Landmark
A decade after it was abandoned, a famous sixty year old tire factory has been rehabilitated as part of a $118 million adaptive mixed-reuse commercial-office mall known as the Citadel....

Mechanical Characterization of the Soft Tissue in Horse Hooves
The laminar corium tissue of the equine distal digit (or horse hoof) has been tested uniaxial tension. The laminar corium tissue lies between the hoof wall and the underlying bone of the...

The Transverse Vortex in the Wall Regions of the Turbulent Boundary Layers in the Flows with Adverse Pressure Gradient
The vortical structures in the turbulent boundary layers in the flow with adverse pressure gradient were investigated by the hydrogen bubble technique. The vortices were visualized in...

Shear Flow Between Walls in Relative Motion
The paper reports on experiments on Couette flow, i.e., the shear-induced flow between surfaces which are in motion relative to each other. The novel aspect of the work is the appearance...

Fluid Dynamics at the Carotid Bifurcation
Arterial wall distensibility is believed to be of secondary importance to the general flowfield of the human carotid artery. However, it has been reported that it may have greater influence...

The Generalized Brazier Problem for Orthotropic Straight Tubes of Finite Length
A new engineering approach, based upon a mixed variational functional, is presented for the analysis of the nonlinear static behavior of thin-walled, circular-cross-section cylindrical...

Flow Dynamics in an End-to-End Vascular Graft Junction
A study consisting of both experimental and numerical methods was performed to determine flow dynamics in the vicinity of an end-to-end anastomosis. The experimentally determined geometries...

Historic Seawalls of the Boston Harbor, Massachusetts Region: Evolution, Construction and Repair
The earliest seawalls in the Boston region were of crib construction. Cobb cribs had an open framework and could readily be floated into position and sunk with rock from local sources....
