# Principles of Graphical Gradually Varied Flow Model

*Any gradually varied flow computation requires the solution of the energy and continuity equations. To this end, many techniques are available. For prismatic channels, the Direct Step...*

Transverse Mixing in Partially Stratified Flow

*The paper reports the results of a laboratory study on the rate of transverse mixing in oscillatory estuary-type flow with density gradients typical of those found in real estuaries. Two...*

Fault Movement Effects on Buried Oil Pipeline

*In earthquake zones pipeline crossings of major active faults are often unavoidable, and movements of these faults can have serious consequences for the pipeline. The ability of a large...*

Finite Element Approach to Waves Due to Landslides

*The finite element method based on the weighted residuals principle is used for the description of the generation and the unidirectional propagation of waves in a channel due to the temporal...*

Plastic Analysis under Combined Stresses

*Based on matrix algebra, decomposition, and linear programming techniques, a general mathematical model is developed for rigid-plastic analysis of discrete elements and structures under...*

Hydrodynamic Pressure in Semicylindrical Reservoir

*Solutions are presented for modal analysis of hydrodynamic pressures generated by the three translational seismic components — longitudinal, vertical, and transverse — on a dam limiting...*

Static Behavior of Wire Rope

*A method for determing the static response of a wire rope with a cross section consisting of wire strands has been developed. The method is an extension of previous work and requires the...*

Channel Siltation Determined with Side-Scan Radar

*Of the new electronic means to measure water depth, side-scan sonar is unusual in that it gives not just a cross-section of the bottom but a semi-3-D picture of the bottom surface. Experienced...*

Beam Analog for Plate Elements

*A beam-analog to continuously attached elements has been established as a method for the analysis of a continuum. Although the analog grid is composed only of orthogonally connected beams,...*

Method of Developing Optimum Tolerances

*Standards should optimize for society. This is approximately accomplished by minimizing the sum of expected present values of initial cost and losses due to failure (entrance into limit...*

End Effects in Long Curved Beam

*Eigenfunction solutions of the biharmonic equation have been used to investigate the Saint-Venant boundary region in a long curved beam of rectangular cross section. The participation...*

Earthwork Volumes by Contour Method

*A new method for the computation of earthwork volumes in massive hillside grading projects is developed which increases the accuracy and vastly reduces the time and cost of calculations....*

Longitudinal Dispersion Coefficients for Streams

*A simplified method is presented to predict the longitudinal dispersion coefficient for natural streams. A dimensionless parameter, β, which is the function of the shape of the channel...*

Buckling of Axially Loaded Open Shells

*This paper describes an experimental investigation of the buckling behavior of axially-loaded thin open cylindrical shells. The results of experiments with 36 aluminum shell specimens...*

Elastic Stability of Polygon Folded Plate Columns

*Using the techniques of discrete field analysis, the stability equation is obtained in a form independent of the number of sides in the polygon cross section. The stability equation was...*

Inelastic Cycles of Axially Loaded Steel Members

*Sixteen fixed-ended steel bars of rectangular cross section 1/2 in. x 1 (12.7 x 25.4-mm) and (12.7-mmand of various lengths were tested under 25.4-mm) nder static and dynamic loads to...*

Axial Hysteretic Behavior of Steel Members

*A procedure for predicting the force-deformation behavior of axially-loaded members with intermediate slenderness ratios is developed for use in computer-aided inelastic dynamic analyses...*

Experimental Investigation of Flow Over Side Weirs

*Observations at numerous cross sections in a side weir channel showed that the total energy of flow decreases substantially along the channel, contrary to the assumption that has frequently...*

Hydraulics of Surface Buoyant Jet

*The spreading of a jet discharge horizontally at the surface of a quiescent receiving water of slightly larger density is investigated, assuming that the bulk Richardson number is moderate....*

Ferrocement Load-Bearing Wall Elements

*Some laboratory test results on ferrocement load-bearing wall elements of undulating cross section are presented. Slenderness ratio of the element, amount of mesh, and mild steel reinforcement...*
