Modelling Studies for the Assessment of the Advanced Cold Process Canister
The Advanced Cold Process Canister (ACPC) is a new concept for the encapsulation of spent nuclear fuel for geological disposal. It consists of steel canister encased in a copper overpack....

Potential ¹4CO2 Releases from Spent Fuel Containers at Yucca Mountain
The potential release of gaseous 14CO2 from small perforations in spent fuel containers has been evaluated...

Computerized Engineered Maintenance Management Systems for Corrosion Mitigation in Piping Networks

Interruption of Sewer Crown Corrosion—Ecological Solutions
Competitive inhibition of acid production by thiobacilli was investigated by encouraging the growth of potential competitors. Two-organism competition experiments (Thiobacillus sp. vs....

Hydrogen Sulfide in Hydropower Reservoirs
Hydrogen sulfide is toxic to aquatic life and corrosive to construction materials at concentrations that are considerably lower than detection limits of analytical procedures commonly...

Corrosion Below: Sewer Structures
When a sewer system fails, the cause is often not the pipe but a manhole, junction or other special-purpose structure. Most of these structures are concrete, either cast in place or precast....

Durability and Damage Tolerance Evaluations of Jet Transport Structures
Many design considerations are involved in ensuring structural integrity of Boeing jet transports, which have common design features validated by extensive analyses, tests, and service...

Time Variant Reliability Analysis Considering Corrosive Effects
In this study the influence of corrosion is determined as a function of the stress intensity factor, the frequency and the stress ratio of the loading process. The present study investigates...

Case Histories of Sulfide Corrosion
Section 522 of the Water Quality Act of 1987 requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct a study of sulfide corrosion and control options in collection and treatment...

Corrosion Protection of Cast Iron and Ductile Iron Pipe, San Diego, California
This paper addresses the use of a loose unbonded plastic covering polyethylene encasement for protection of cast and ductile iron pipe in an extremely corrosive soil. The case study in...

Landfill Gas Pipe Selection and Installation
Sanitary landfills present a unique array of pipe selection and installation criteria when designing landfill gas (LFG) control and recovery systems. Factors that must be considered include...

Near-Field Modelling for the Safety Assessment of French High-Level Waste Repositories
In assessing the safety of a French high-level waste repository, the fluxes of radionuclides released by the near-field into the geosphere are modelled by the CONDIMENT source code. This...

Ground Anchorage Practice

Surge and Odor Control for Southeast Capital Circle Manifolded Force Main

Grouting Slip Liners: The New Inside Story
There are approximately 800,000 miles of water and sewer pipelines in the U.S. that need remedial work. About 2% need work each year, usually due to normal or accidental corrosion. Normal...

Industry Faces the Parking Problem
Parking structures are deteriorating; no land is available for new facilities; and employees have no other options for parking. The situation is a serious one, verging on disaster for...

Assessment of Conductors
This paper deals with the mechanical integrity of conductors after several years in service and discusses current innovative conductor designs which benefit the structural designer working...

Fatigue Strength of Corroded Rolled Beams
Highway and railway bridges fabricated from ASTM A7, A36, and A572 steels will corrode if the paint system is allowed to fail for lack of maintenance. Corroding members lose cross section...

The Fatigue Performance of Welded Joints in a Marine Environment
The fatigue lives of plate-plate, pipe-plate, and tubular welded joints tested in seawater under free corrosion, optimum cathodic protection and cathodic overprotection measured in the...
