Hydraulic Design of a Low Submergence Siphon Intake

Estimates of Permeability of Porous Materials Using Image Analysis of Cross Sections
We have developed an image processing method for characterizing the pore structure of porous materials such as rock and concrete, to provide a means for understanding the dependence of...

Video Modeling: A New Paradigm for Reproducing Complex Engineering Artifacts on Computer
This paper introduces a novel approach for automatically creating accurate computer models of existing, physical artifacts. Based on the projected silhouettes of the object, when viewed...

Experimental Studies for the Port of Bilbao Extension
The Port of Bilbao is the leading port in Spain concerning total traffic volume. It also holds a relevant position in the international context. The Managing Board recently approved an...

Stability of Accropode(R) and Comparison with Parallelepipedic Block
This paper describes the tests which were performed on physical models with irregular waves, to determine the hydraulic stability of the Accropode(R)...

Mobile-Bed Physical Model Tests for the 1992 Olympic Harbour
The undistorted physical model is described which allowed the measurement of the wave induced velocity field along the main breakwater, and also in Somorrostro Beach (Barcelona). The current...

Physical Model Testing of Broken Armor Stone
Cracking, breaking into two or more pieces, flaking, crumbling, and abrading may reduce an armor stone to a size where wave action can remove it from the structure causing a local instability....

Time-Viscosity Relationships of Newtonian and Binghamian Grouts

A Dual Approach to Low Frequency Energy Definition in a Small Craft Harbor
Low frequency wave energy in a small craft harbor is examined through comparison between a numerical model and a 3-dimensional physical model. A hybrid element steady state linear monochromatic...

The Remote Monitoring of Waste Glass Melter Product

Physical Processes and Effects of Magmatism in the Yucca Mountain Region

Responses of Bilinear and Impacting Systems Subjected to Regular Waves
The dynamic responses of bilinear and impacting oscillators subjected to harmonic loadings are investigated. Differing from previous studies in which bifurcation diagrams were developed...

Wavelet Transform Analysis of Several Transient or Nonstationary Phenomena in Engineering Mechanics
Several examples of the use of a wavelet transform in the analysis of transient events in mechanical systems are provided. The transform has the advantage over other transient analysis...

Multiple Modes of Steady-State Slide-Rock Response
The dynamic response of free standing rigid bodies to base excitation can be quite complex, as evidenced by the five motions or modes to be considered in a two-dimensional analysis: rest,...

Dugdale Model Applied to Crack Interactions
It is doubtful that modelling crack interactions problem within the context of elasticity adequately reflects the physical aspects as the failure of brittle material is approached. A model...

First-Passage Failure Predictions for Yielding Primary-Secondary Systems
Approximate methods are used to investigate the effect of nonnormality (non-Gaussianity) on the time of first-passage failure for a linear secondary system mounted on a yielding primary...

Nonstationary Response Characteristics of Linear MDOF Systems
A new approximate methodology for nonstationary random vibration analysis of multi-degree-of-freedom linear systems is developed. Simple analytical expressions for the covariance response...

Response of Mono-Coupled Distributed Parameter Systems to Random Excitation
The random vibration of periodic structures consisting of a multiplicity of closely coupled distributed parameter substructures is addressed. The problem formulation is general, and the...

Harmonic Excitation of an Unconstrained Saturated Particle Bed
Past research on the flow of concentrated cohensinless mixtures have historically emphasized steady or quasi-steady motions while dynamic effects have received little attention in comparison....

Equivalence Between Motions with Noise-Induced Jumps and Chaos with Smale Horseshoes
For certain sets of parameters multi-stable oscillators excited by noise can exhibit irregular jumps. We consider one-degree-of-freedom near-integrable multi-stable systems whose unperturbed...
