Coastal Geomorphology and Sand Budgets Applied to Beach Nourishment
It is commonly assumed beach nourishment projects are more successful if applied over long distances of shoreline. Short projects tend to unravel at the ends as the bulge formed by the...

Experience with Beach Fill Equilibration and Recommended Design Guidelines
Well documented engineering procedures suitable for determining design berm dimensions subsequent to profile equilibration appear to be lacking. Failure to properly account for cross-shore...

Beach Nourishment with Aragonite and Tuned Structures
The first full-scale use in the United States of imported aragonite sand for beach restoration was undertaken at Fisher Island, Florida, between December 1990 and April 1991. About 20,000...

Short Beach Nourishment Fill Performance on an Irregular Coatline
A review of the beach nourishment fill performance literature reveals that the accepted and proven theories of beach fill performance can be categorized as either one-line models or analytic...

Bay Ridge, Anne Arundel County, Maryland Offshore Breakwater and Beach Fill Design
Construction of the Bay Ridge shoreline protection project was completed in July 1991 and consists of eleven offshore segmented breakwaters with beach fill. The breakwaters, located about...

Subaqueous Disposal Area Development and Mitigation
Development of subaqueous dikes on soft soils extensively utilized geosynthetics. The design adopted a wide-bermed embankment with high-strength geotextile for tensile reinforcement and...

Piles Over Problems Sites
It's increasingly difficult to find suitable space for construction in urban areas. Pile foundations can fill the void by making questionable and heavily regulated sites,...

Ropeway Material Handling Systems for Lunar Mining Sites
The establishment of permanent lunar sites will be a requirement for future space explorations during early missions into space as well as long term. During all stages it will be necessary...

Regolith Dynamics
Due to the differences of the gravitational accelerations of the Earth and Lunar environments, geotechnical engineering must be applied differently in the two environments. This study...
