Remote Sensing: A New Revolution in Geotechnical Engineering
Remote sensing in the form of satellite imagery has become part of our everyday life—from displaying boring locations at a job site to the various mapping apps on our smart phones that help us get there....

Design Considerations Common To All Permeable Pavements
Impervious cover in watersheds without controls result in increased stormwater runoff and decreased groundwater recharge in response to rainfall events. This increased runoff can be the...

Radial Flow Consolidation Testing
A radial flow consolidation cell that can be used with commercially available loading frames was developed and a series of tests were performed on samples of sedimented kaolin. Simple...

Finite Difference Analyses for Sand Drain Problems
The geotechnical literature contains a number of papers in which sand drain installations are described and field performance is compared with theoretical predictions. Some of the field...

A Probabilistic Approach to Karstic Foundation Variability
Karst is a landscape formed in soluble rocks caused by movement of water that has become slightly acidic. Limestone, dolomite, and gypsum are vulnerable to these influences and may be...

Journal of Pipeline Systems Engineering and Practice
The Journal of Pipeline Systems Engineering and Practice is a professional, authoritative technical resource that reports on a broad range of topics pertaining to the planning, engineering, design, construction,...

Prefabricated Vertical Drains — The Squeeze is On

Hydrologic Comparison of Four Types of Permeable Pavement and Standard Asphalt in Eastern North Carolina
A permeable pavement parking lot in eastern North Carolina consisting of four types of permeable pavement and standard asphalt was monitored from June 2006 to July 2007 for hydrologic...

Hurricane Protection System
This chapter discusses hurricane protection systems. Topics include standard project hurricane, levees and floodwalls, datums and elevations, and interior drainage and pump stations....

Pile-Head Behavior of Rigidly Capped Pile Group

Effects of Agricultural Drainage on the Baseflow in the Minnesota River Basin

Beans Help Build Deep Drainage Trenches

Application of TOPNET in the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project (DMIP)
This paper describes the application of a networked version of TOPMODEL, TOPNET, as part of the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project, DMIP. The model implementation is based on a...

Water Quality Aspects of Irrigation and Drainage: Past History and Future Challenges for Civil Engineers
This paper presents a brief history of irrigation and drainage related to ASCE activities on its Jubilee. This paper discussed legislation and policies that affect irrigation and drainage...

Storm-Water Strategy
Water pollution laws are certainly nothing new, but increased public scrutiny, beach closures, and media coverage—particularly in Orange County, California—have placed new pressures on...

Draining in a New Direction
(Available on in special edition) Wick drains can stabilize slopes and landslides by accelerating soil consolidation and settlement. But conventional wick drains, driven vertically into...

Replacement Strategy
Water Works II, a $275-million water treatment plant currently under construction in Detroit, is redefining the way that such projects are let and built. In 1980 the city initiated a program...

Water Quality Restoration of the Mammoth Cave Karst Aquifer: A Work in Progress
Over tens of thousands of years the aquatic ecosystem of the Mammoth Cave Karst Aquifer evolved in concordance with natural recharge supplied through 24,000 hectares of tall-grass prairie...

Erosion from an Industrial Forest Road in the Ouachita Mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma
Erosion from 4 segments of a 2-year old forest road in a 740 ha basin was measured for each of 105 storms that occurred in a 3.5 year period. Two road segments were part of a mid-slope...

Probabilistic Simplified and Detailed Subsurface Drainage Water Quality Modeling of Nitrate Leaching
A transparent uncertainty structure is derived for simplified and detailed conceptual nitrate leaching as a result of a probabilistic modelling procedure. The uncertainty structure consists...
