Simplified Second-Order Inelastic Analysis for Steel Frame Design
Several current approaches are outlined that account for the spreading of plasticity in a second-order inelastic analysis of frames. The approaches are based on modifications to the simple...

Application of TQM to the Waste Management QA Regulatory Arena
Over the past several years, a number of the scientists involved with the high-level radioactive waste repository project have expressed concern regarding the application of quality assurance...

Preparing a Model Water Code: Reform or Restatement?
In preparing a model state water code, there is tension between (1) advocating sweeping water law reform, and (2) merely eliminating overlapping code coverages, filling gaps, updating...

Pipeline Crossings
This proceedings of the Pipeline Crossings Conference, held on March 25-27, 1991 in Denver, Colorado, presents information on aspects of various pipeline crossings. It covers such broad...

Pipeline Rehab: Underground Options
While simply digging up old pipes and replacing them is sometimes still best, other alternatives can give long life while easing the strain on the community. Trenchless methods for on-line...

Scale Effects in Cone Penetration Tests
A field testing program was undertaken to examine the existence of scale effects between a miniature 1.27 cm2 and 15 cm2...

Regional Beach Sand Volumes of the Pacific Northwest, USA
Eight small littoral cells ranging from 5-60 km in length have been surveyed by beach profiling and seismic refraction to establish active beach sand volumes in the Pacific Northwest region....

Rehabilitation of the South Jetty-Ocean City, Maryland
The south jetty at Ocean City, Maryland was rebuilt in 1985 to reduce the frequent shoaling in Ocean City Inlet. The project consists of a new jetty offset 30 feet south of the existing...

Development of Optimum Beach Fill Design Cross-Section
Accurate beach profile surveys, wave information, and sediment data taken at Ocean City, Maryland provided an opportunity to evaluate four beach fill design alternatives using the beach...

Pressure-Time Flow Measurements Under Adverse Conditions
Theoretical analyses suggest that the pressure-time method is capable of accurately determining flow rate in the short, varying cross section, 'semi-scroll' penstocks...

Fluvial Recharge of Sand Mining Pit
Accuracy in modeling fluvial processes becomes increasingly important as development occurs along waterways. The FLUVIAL-12 (1, 2) model is used to simulate the recharge of sand mining...

Introduction to Immersed Tube Tunneling Symposium
Today's Symposium on Immersed Tube Tunneling is a continuation of a series of papers that began at Construction Congress '89 with discussion of mined tunnel subaqueous...

Seismic Hazard Along a Crude Oil Pipeline in the Event of an 1811-1812 Type New Madrid Earthquake
This paper presents an assessment of the seismic hazard that exists along a major crude oil pipeline (pipeline 22). An 1811-1812 type New Madrid earthquake with moment magnitude 8.2 is...

Liquefaction Hazard Analysis for Design of the Kern River Pipeline at the Muddy River Crossing, Southern Nevada
The 91.4-cm (36-in.) diameter Kern River natural gas transmission pipeline will cross the Muddy River in Moapa Valley, about 5 km west of Glendale, Nevada, in an area of relatively low...

Philosophy for Treatment of High-Pressure Natural Gas Pipelines at Active Fault Crossings
Natural gas from fields in the overthrust belt of southwest Wyoming will be collected and transported to Southern California. The proposed Kern River Pipeline will transport gas to Daggett,...

Twin Pipeline Crossing of the Fraser River
A new creek water supply was developed for the communities of Mission and Matsqui, British Columbia, Canada, in the early eighties. Over 60 kilometres of 450 mm to 900 mm diameter ductile...

Compact Pump Sump Design
This paper details the design criteria chosen to construct a pump sump within several on-site constrictions. The physical size restrictions of the site necessitated the construction of...

Hydraulic and Scour Analysis for Muitiple Crossings of the Salt River, Phoenix, Arizona
Two new freeway systems currently being designed for the Phoenix metropolitan area, the East Papago Freeway and the Outer Loop Highway, will both cross the Salt River within a one mile...

Time Dependent Stochastic Characteristics of the Lateral Random Vibration of Tall Structures with Circular Cross-Section
From full scale measurement of the pressure field at three levels of a concrete chimney with 230 m height the lift coefficient is deduced and the lateral oscillation is investigated. The...
