Convergence Rates of the Method of Successive Elastic Solutions in Thermoplastic Problems of a Layered Concentric Cylinder
This paper examines convergence rates of the method of successive elastic solutions, proposed by Mendelson, in determining the thermoplastic response of an arbitrarily layered concentric...

Development of the Double Cylinder Caisson Breakwater
A double cylinder caisson breakwater was recently developed to create a calm sea area in deep and high wave open sea areas. In order to confirm some subjects on design method and construction...

Scour Development at Isolated River-Bed Obstacles
Development of local scour was investigated for isolated obstacles on movable beds subject to clear-water scour. The resulting maximum scour depths, scour volumes, and obstacle displacements...

PCCP Inspection and Remediation Methods
This paper presents detailed investigative procedures and methodology used to locate corroded Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipes (PCCP). It examines data collection by electronic devices,...

Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Pressure Pipe Diagnosis
Prestressed and reinforced concrete steel cylinder pipes are used for transmission mains, water intake lines, sewers force mains. Many collapses caused by the steel cylinder attack were...

Pipelines Crossing Highways and Railroads by Tunneling
When new pipeline construction requires the crossing of highways and railroads, a pipeline is generally installed in pipe or tunnel linear plate encasement which has been installed by...

Preventing Coating Delamination in Prestressed Concrete Pipe
This paper describes the results of experimental and analytical studies of mortar coating delamination of prestressed of concrete cylinder pipe. Coating delamination resulting from radial...

Key Technical Features of Hydraulic Cylinders

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...

Wave-Current Interaction with a Large Structure
The effects of a current on the diffraction of regular waves around a three-dimensional body are examined by a time-domain method. The Froude number is assumed to be small so that the...

Nonlinear Wave Runup on Large Circular Cylinders
Various design methods for computing nonlinear wave runup on a large-diameter circular cylinder are presented. First, empirical correlations are developed between the observed maximum...

Second-Order Hydrodynamic Interactions Between a Pair of Vertical Cylinders in Irregular Waves
A complete second-order solution is given for the hydrodynamic forces on a pair of bottom-mounted, surface-piercing, vertical circular cylinders in bichromatic seas. The constant structural...

Wave Slamming on a Horizontal Circular Cylinder
The present paper describes an experimental study of the wave slamming force on a horizontal circular cylinder located near the free surface. The vertical force on a cylinder and the corresponding...

Nonlinear Behaviour of Schneebeli Packings
We present some experimental proofs of the influence of the disorder of contacts on the mechanical (non-local) behaviour of packings of cylinders. In particular, this disorder is responsible...

Cylindrical Shell Redesign by Large Admissible Perturbations
Redesign (or inverse design) is the problem of defining an objective structural State S2 from its specifications and the known baseline State S1. The large admissible perturbations approach...

Application of NMR to Rotating Granular Flow
Granular flow in a steadily rotating cylinder, having a large length-to-diameter ratio, is measured by nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This non-invasive technique is capable...

Inflation Instability of Cylindrical Membranes
A new procedure which investigates inflation instability of cylindrical nonlinear membranes is developed. The general characteristics of inflation instability are described. An efficient...

A Horizontal Inflatable Habitat for SEI
The inflatable habitat described in this paper is a horizontally-oriented cylindrical pneumatic structure. It is part of NASA's ongoing effort to study inflatables as alternative habitats...

Experimental Study of the Transient Temperature Distributions in Concrete
A small scale, preliminary experimental effort to quantify the randomness of the thermal diffusivity of concrete has been undertaken. Two sets of cylinders have been instrumented with...

Nonlinear Diffraction of Random Waves by a Vertical Cylinder
In this study, nonlinear diffraction of random waves by a vertical uniform circular cylinder in deep water is analyzed. The incident wave field is represented by a stationary random process,...
