Interaction of Boundary Layer Pressure Fluctuations with a Compliant Boundary

ECPT Investigation of a Slurry Trench Cutoff Wall
ECPT (electronic cone penetration testing) was used to investigate a soil-bentonite backfilled slurry trench cutoff wall at Calamus Dam in Nebraska, The wall was tested shortly after its...

In Situ Tests Aid Design of a Cylinder Pile Wall
In situ testing was used to verify geotechnical design parameters and modify construction for a 22 million dollar slope stabilization project near a major highway interchange. The project...

Pressuremeter Tests and Shoring Wall Design
Pressuremeter testing was used as an integral part in the design of the temporary tieback shoring wall for the Columbia Center office building in Seattle, Washington. Pressuremeter testing...

Seepage Studies Using Tracers and the Self Potential Test
Mill Creek Dam, a homogeneous silt structure resting on a conglomerate foundation, has experienced severe 'seepage since its construction in 1941. In 1981, a concrete cutoff...

In-Place Permeability Measurement of Slurry Trench Cutoff Walls
A suggested procedure for the in-place measurement of slurry trench cutoff wall permeability is presented. The H. Bouwer and Rice method, employing a single observation well and variable-head...

Coastal Protection Guidelines, Orange County, GA
As a result of coastal storms in the past several years the County of Orange (California) incurred large and unanticipated costs in providing emergency protection for private shorefront...

Alterations to Old Wood Building
In order to accommodate a new use, a request was made to remove bearing walls supporting the roof of a 42 year-old building and substitute timber posts. The existing nine-foot ceiling...

Analysis of Masonry Veneer and Steel Stud Walls

Loss of Prestress in Post-Tensioned Hollow Masonry Walls

Temperature and Creep Stresses in Composite Masonry Walls

A Study of Exterior Facades—Problems and Solutions
The quality of the exterior facades of a building is important to maintaining aesthetic image, protecting the interior environment from infiltration of heat, cold, moisture, wind, and...

Soil Nailing a Wall
Soil nailing is the reinforced-earth idea (in which the earth must be backfilled behind the wall) applied to cut situations. Soil nails are an inexpensive post-tensioned tieback, consisting...

The Basics of Water-Resistant Brick Walls
Water-resistant masonry walls of burned clay or shale brick are the result of a conscious effort to produce them, by everyone involved in their creation. Furthermore, owner maintenance...

A Component Failure Criterion for Blockwork in Flexure

Ice Loads on Structures With Compound Slopes
Many of the offshore drilling structures proposed for use in the Arctic have sides with multiple slopes. Sloping walls are used at the waterline to cause the ice sheet to fail in bending...

Hydraulic Fracturing in Embankment Dams
There is now sufficient evidence to conclude that concentrated leaks occur commonly through the impervious sections of embankment dams by hydraulic fracturing without being observed, even...

The Use and Performance of Seepage Reduction Measures
The utilization and performance of various foundation seepage reduction measures from over 100 dams situated on pervious soils throughout the world has been reviewed. Summary discussions...
