Survey System Looks Behind Walls

Mud Mountain Dam Concrete Cutoff Wall
Mud Mountain Dam is an earth and rockfill flood control dam on the White River. The dam is located approximately 50 km southeast of Seattle, Washington. The dam was constructed in 1941...

Rehabilitation of the Deep Creek Lake Dam
This paper presents the rehabilitation design for upgrading the Deep Creek Lake dam. The Deep Creek dam is a rock fill dam, 92 feet (28 m) high and 1290 feet (393 m) long, and constructed...

Drift Emplaced Waste Package Thermal Response
Thermal calculations of the effects of radioactive waste decay heat on the potential repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, have been conducted by the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization...

Heat Transfer in Vertical Concentric Cylinders in a High Level Nuclear Waste Repository
Modeling free convection heat transfer in an cylindrical annular enclosure is still an active area of research and an important problem to be addressed in the high level nuclear waste...

Study of a Computer System for Evaluation of Bearing Wall Stresses in Structural Planning — Reasoning by Neural Network
This report proposes a reasoning system for bearing shear wall stresses in the ultimate state by using geometrical data of buildings and shear walls at the initial stage of aseismic structural...

The Force Between a Bogie and a Troubled Suspension and Guidance Coil
It is very important for the superconducting LSM Maglev vehicle to maintain the safety. Currents induced in suspension and guidance coils arranged on the side wall of a guide way generate...

Cumulative Environmental Impacts of Shoreline Stabilization on Puget Sound
Although shore protection structures such as bulkheads and seawalls may provide protection to upland property owners, they bring with them numerous potential adverse environmental effects....

Historical Shoreline Analysis of the Mississippi Gulf Coast
Historical shoreline positions of the Mississippi mainland coast and the barrier islands were digitized for four periods of time. USGS T-sheets provided control for the 1850's, 1917, and...

New Structures Used for Protection of the Black Sea Coasts
New construction of coastal protective issues, elaborated in SIA Saknapirdatsva are described in this paper: such as two-chamber crib retaining wall, through coast grayne, hollow concrete...

The Azov-Black Sea Coast of Russia—An Experience of Artificial Beach Formation
There is a tendency in modern cost protective engineering to expand the scales of artificial beach formation. The first sandy beach was filled in 1971 in Gelendzhik Bay. In 1982 wide scale...

A Semi Passive Nutrient Injection System for In Situ Bioremediation
A permeable cutoff wall is installed across the path of a contaminant plume. The water in the wall can be amended with the desired nutrient solution using pumping and injecting wells within...

Seismic Response of Composite Coupled Walls
In many structures, height restrictions may require coupling of reinforced concrete walls by structural steel beams rather than conventional reinforced concrete beams. Through an experimental...

Bending of Retrofitted Test Foundation Walls
New repair methodology has been developed for residential construction that can be used to retrofit foundation bearing walls damaged by mine subsidence. The repair strengthens the foundation...

Thin Walled Circular Concrete Filled Steel Tubular Columns
The thin walled steel tube filled with high strength concrete delivers the economies of a concrete column with the speed of construction and the constructability of a steel column resulting...

Steel Panel Encased R.C. Composite Shear Walls
In order to make clear the fundamental resisting mechanisms of composite shear walls, tests are carried out on the composite unit rigid frames with various infilled shear walls. Composite...

The Pipe/Soil Stiffness Ratio Variable
This paper reviews the factors which affect the reactions and defines performance limitations of buried flexible plastic pipe as a function of load-induced strains and deflections. The...

Slurry Walls Pull Double Duty on Denver Underpass

Generic Problems
Generic Problems are basic problems in structural mechanics that recur frequently, have been investigated experimentally and involve the behavior of elements or components found in many...
