Balancing Act (Available only in Geoenvironmental Special Issue)
On March 9, 1996, at the Rumpke sanitary landfill near Cincinnati, a precariously overbuilt waste slope collapsed and more than 20 acres of waste slammed into an adjacent excavation site....

Performance Monitoring for Source Stabilization

Waste Not: The Scottsdale Transfer Station (Available only in Structural Engineering Special Issue)
Scottsdale, Ariz., is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. In 1980, it had 88,000 residents; in 1997, it had 170,000. By 2020, demographers expect the population to surpass 275,000....

Carbon Bags Help Trash Burn Cleaner

New Jersey Nearshore Hypoxia During the Summer 1976

Pier Width and Local-Scour Depth
Presented here are the results of an enquiry into the effects of pier width on local scour depth. The results show that scour depth does not scale linearly with pier width unless there...

An Analysis of Characteristics of Basset Force on Particles Accelerating in Arbitrary Flow Field
In present study of solid-liquid two phase flow, the effect of Basset force on a particle moving unsteadily in a non-uniform flow is not very clear. For this reason, the properties of...
