Dry Dams in the Desert: Chasing Land Subsidence and Earth Fissures with Geophysics
Homogenous embankment dam flood retention structures (FRSs) were built throughout central Arizona desert basins in the mid-twentieth century to protect mostly agricultural lands and military installations...

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...

Prefabricated Vertical Drains — The Squeeze is On

Watershed Modeling for Surface-Groundwater Interaction
Groundwater use has increased rapidly due to irrigation development in the Great Plains. This is especially true in the Republican Basin that intersects the three states of Nebraska, Kansas...

Flood Warning System for the Sutlej River in Remote Northern India
Through a collaborative effort of the Central Water Commission (CWC) of India, the U.S. Agency for International Development (which provided funding for the project), Riverside Technology,...

Mitigation of Impervious Surface Hydrology Using Bioretention in North Carolina and Maryland
As an increasingly adopted stormwater best management practice to remedy hydrologic impairment from urban imperviousness, bioretention facilities need rigorous field performance research...

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....
