Energy Dissipation Characteristics of Rubber Cylinders
A simplified procedure for scaling the energy absorption characteristics of rubber cylinders during high speed impact is presented. Static and dynamic tests of scale model and full size...

Structural Responses in Mechatronics
The design analysis of a circular cylinder, ring-stiffened intermittently, subject to conducting flow, is presented herein (Fan, 1986 & 1990). This composite cylinder is made of...

Investigation & Rehabilitation of Seattle's Tolt Pipeline
Seattle Water Department's Tolt Pipeline brings water 24 miles from storage in the Cascade Mountains into city and suburban distribution systems. Twenty-three miles of this...

In-Situ Evaluation of 30-In. (762-mm) Diameter Prestressed Concrete Lined-Cylinder Pipeline
The results of an extensive investigation to evaluate the in-service condition and future serviceability of an existing lake water make-up pipeline are briefly described herein. The pipeline...

Combined Load Testing of Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe
A series of combined load tests were run on prestressed concrete cylinder pipe in order to evaluate a proposed new method of design for pipe made to AWWA Standard C301. These tests involved...

Innovative Concept for Prestressed Pressure Pipe
A new design and manufacturing concept was developed by General Atomics for prestressed pressure pipe. With this new concept, patented in the U.S. and in the major industrialized nations,...

Failure of Prestressed Concrete Embedded Cylinder Pipe
In 1964, the Ontario Provincial Government undertook to supply water to the City of London (current population 300,000). The supply source was from Lake Huron near Grand Bend, Ontario...

Evaluation of Combined Load Tests of Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe
Combined load tests of prestressed concrete cylinder pipe, presented by Tremblay in the proceedings of this conference, are analyzed. Data gathered during the tests includes first visible...

Analysis of Alternative Pipe Materials for a Major Public Water Agency
A major southwestern public water agency has historically specified the exclusive use of prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) for large diameter water transmission mains. Due to the...

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...

Forces Acting on a Vortex-Excited Vibrating Cylinder in Planar Oscillatory Flow
An experimental investigation into the vortex-excited vibration of a circular cylinder in planar oscillatory flow has been made with emphasis being placed on the amplification of the forces...

Evaluation of Factors Affecting High-Strength Concrete Cores
A number of factors are discussed to explain different effects they have on core strength. These factors should be considered when evaluating cores tested to determine 'true'...

Evaluation of High Strength Concrete by the Break-Off Method
The reliability of the Break-Off method to test inplace high-strength concrete is investigated. A total of 188 Break-Off tests and 30 standard cylinder tests are carried out for this project....

Long-Term Strength Gain or High Strength Concrete as Monitored by Drilled Cores
An evaluation was made of the relationship between standard cylinders, four-inch by eight-inch cylinders, and drilled cores. The evaluation results showed that the strengths obtained from...

Compressive Strength Relationship Between Cylinder Tests and Core Tests
A core obtained from any field cured structural member will be inherently different than the field cured cylinder used as a control. Consequently, comparisons with field cured cylinders...

High Strength Concrete: Proportioning, Behavior and Applications
Generally, concrete with a cylinder compressive strength higher than 6000 psi (41.4 MPa) is designated as high strength concrete. High strengths are achieved using stronger coarse aggregates,...

Oil Hydraulic Design for Turbine Control
The paper addresses three areas of Oil Hydraulic Design for Francis and Kaplan Turbines: smart accumulator condition sensors, high flow servo logic, and high pressures Wicket Gate cylinder...

Arbuckle Mountain Hydro Vertical-Axis Fish Screens
Fish screens to exclude small fry and debris at remote sites such as Arbuckle Mountain Hydroelectric Plant post unique design considerations to satisfy criteria established by fisheris...

Random Wave Forces on Cylinder Near a Boundary

Circular Tubes and Shells 4th Edition of SSRC Guide
The 3rd edition of the Guide was the first to have a chapter devoted to Cylindrical Tubes and Shells. Chapter 14 in the 4th edition is a major revision of Chapter 10 in the previous edition....
