Hazardous Waste Containment with a Bentonite Cutoff Wall

Sandbridge Virginia Oceanfront Seawall Arbitration Hearing: Some Lessons Learned for Coastal Engineers
A group of beach property homeowners claimed that their new oceanfront seawall was defective in design. A beefed-up design cost about $1.3 million more and they sought this amount from...

Free Vibration Analysis of Asymmetric Buildings
A simple procedure for free vibration analysis of asymmetric buildings is presented. This method assumes that each floor is a rigid diaphragm with three degrees of freedom (two lateral...

The Transverse Vortex in the Wall Regions of the Turbulent Boundary Layers in the Flows with Adverse Pressure Gradient
The vortical structures in the turbulent boundary layers in the flow with adverse pressure gradient were investigated by the hydrogen bubble technique. The vortices were visualized in...

Shear Flow Between Walls in Relative Motion
The paper reports on experiments on Couette flow, i.e., the shear-induced flow between surfaces which are in motion relative to each other. The novel aspect of the work is the appearance...

Fluid Dynamics at the Carotid Bifurcation
Arterial wall distensibility is believed to be of secondary importance to the general flowfield of the human carotid artery. However, it has been reported that it may have greater influence...

Historic Seawalls of the Boston Harbor, Massachusetts Region: Evolution, Construction and Repair
The earliest seawalls in the Boston region were of crib construction. Cobb cribs had an open framework and could readily be floated into position and sunk with rock from local sources....

Earth Walls: Making the Right Choice
Earth walls are retaining walls where the ground assumes a load-bearing role. These walls either support compacted earth (embankment-type reinforced compacted earth walls such as Doublewal...

Low-Rise Shear Wall Failure Modes
A summary of the data that are available concerning the structural response of low-rise shear walls is presented. These data will be used to address two failure modes associated with shear...

Macro-Model for Inelastic Low-Rise R.C. Shear Walls
This paper presents an analytical technique for calculating static and seismic response of low-rise shear wall structures. The displacement response is resulting from bending, shear, and...

Finite Element Analysis and Design of Plywood Shear Walls
An integrated procedure for the analysis and design of rectangular plywood shear walls is presented and illustrated. The analysis is done using an in-house finite element program with...

Finite Element Approximation to Heat Transfer Through Construction Glass Blocks
The purpose of this study is to investigate the heat transfer through combined solid and fluid media, taking into account the interaction between the solid and the fluid. The main example...

A Simulation to Noise Barrier
The problem related to noise barrier is simulated by a still, single frequency, three dimensional sound source located within two parallel screens with rigid back walls. The solution of...

Myocardial Wall Stress: A Clinician's View
Definition of left ventricular (LV) wall stress is a parameter which has a valid application in clinical medicine. This paper discusses this application as it pertains to various cardiac...

Large Deformation Analysis of Cardiac Structures
The finite element technique can be used to simulate the response of the cardiac structures that have complex shape and geometry and nonlinear material properties. This paper enumerates...

Assessment of Left Ventricular Flow Dynamics Using the Finite Analytic Method: Potential for Clinical Applications
Left ventricular (LV) function is traditionally assessed from chamber wall motion, rheological properties of the myocardium, and invasive measurements of chamber pressure. In order to...

A Computer Simulation of the Blood Flow at the Aortic Bifurcation with Flexible Walls
To understand the possible role of hemodynamics in the atherogenesis, especially the effect of the flexibility of the arteries, a two-dimensional numerical model for the blood flow at...
