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...

Spherical Shells with Nonuniform Rigidity
An iterative finite difference technique is presented in this paper for the analysis of axisymmetric spherical shells with variable wall thickness. The proposed method of solution is based...

Soil-Cement Mixed Wall Technique
This paper introduces the soil-cement mixed wall technique and its applications for the installation of cutoff walls, excavation support walls and soil-crete columns for soil stabilization....

Up and Down Construction of a 17-Story Building
The One Westwood Building is located on a small site in the Westwood district of Los Angeles. Construction of the 17-story building with 8 levels of subterranean parking was complicated...

Watertight and Earthquake Resistant Joints for Diaphragm Walls
Different types of joints were constructed and tested in the field to evaluate the bond between concrete and partition plate, the effect of tremie pipe location to the quality of concrete...

Performance of a Welded Wire Wall with Poor Quality Backfills on Soft Clay

FEM Analysis of Staged Construction for a Reinforced Earth Wall

Within the North Wall of Hugo (Personal Recollections of Being in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time)
Our house is in Romain Retreat, a subdivision of lots of 1 1/2 -3 acres in Awendaw, S.C. approximately 20 miles northeast of Charleston off Route 17 and about the same distance from McClellanville...

Erratum for Earth Walls: Making the Right Choice

Stabilities of Gentle Slope Seawall with Armour Unit

Are Timber Seawalls that Fail, Cost Effective?—Seacliff State Beach Santa Cruz County, California
Proposed reconstruction of a major portion of a 5,100-foot long timber seawall at Seacliff State Beach in Santa Cruz County, California, in 1984, became a major controversy because of...

Beach and Cliff Erosion Processes at Solana Beach, California, 1984-1990
Observations of back beach elevation changes, profiles and cliff erosion over a 7-year period from 1984-1990 provide a detailed local view of these processes and rates at a typical Southern...

Effects of Sea Level Rise on the California Coast
Although California is thought to be an emerging coastline which would be little affected by a change in sea level, a 5 foot rise over the next 100 years could have a significant impact...

Acidic Polysaccharides from Marine Organisms
Different types of acidic polysaccharides have been extracted from various marine organisms. The chemical composition and structural studies of these molecules established that the main...

The Interaction of Seawalls and Beaches: Four Years of Field Monitoring, Monterey Bay, California
Coastal protection structures have historically been the most common approach to dealing with the problem of shoreline erosion in the United States. Three potential impacts of these structures...

Wave-Induced Scour Prediction at Vertical Walls
Scour at the foot of a vertical wall is examined for the special case of normally-incident, nonbreaking irregular waves that are perfectly reflected by the wall. The bottom is initially...

Limit States Design of Wooden Formwork for Concrete Walls
Load and resistance factors are developed for ultimate limit states design of wooden formwork components for concrete walls when the lateral concrete pressures are computed using the ACI...

Seismic Retrofit of Bridge Pier Walls

Structural Investigation of Marina Del Rey Seawall
The Marina del Rey Seawall was constructed by various contractors between 1959 and 1961. It is composed of 660 panels totaling 39,600 linear feet. The seawall configuration is a type normally...
