Infiltration into Thick Unsaturated Alluvial Deposits: A Preliminary Study
An infiltration and dye transport study in an unsaturated alluvial deposit was conducted using a square flooding type infiltrometer over a 50 hour period. Red and blue dyes were added...

Geologic Aspects of the Mt. Hope Pumped Storage Project, Dover, NJ

Design of Pre-excavated Scour Hole Below Flip Bucket Spillways
A number of tests were performed on a model-scale flip bucket spillway with a gravel-bed plunge pool in order to develop equations to describe the geometry of the scour hole created by...

Soil Nailing Technique in Tunnel Support
Authors have developed a new pre-lining method (PASS method) in which thin archshell lining is formed ahead of the tunnel face before the excavation to reinforce the ground. This method...

Mine Support, Radiation and Ventilation Control with Spray-on Barriers
The use of spray-on liner agents to provide localized excavation support in place of traditional techniques such as shotcrete or bolts-and-screen has been the subject of extensive investigation....

Microtunneling: Overview and Case Study
Microtunneling is defined in the United States as a remotely controlled, laser guided pipe jacking process, which does not require personnel entry. This paper describes the components...

Lunar He-3 Mining: Improvements on the Design of the UW Mark II Lunar Miner
One of the minor consituents of the solar wind which has been implanted in the lunar regolith over its several billion year history, is helium 3 (He-3), a rare isotope of helium which...

Transfer of Terrestrial Technology for Lunar Mining
Terrestrial mining equipment was evaluated for development of concepts and their application to lunar-based mining operations. The major operational differences between terrestrial and...

Principles of Control for Robotic Excavation
Excavation can be considered one of the most unstructured problems in the construction environment. On one hand, many technologies have been developed in the past to build shelters using...
