Transient Fluid-Structure Interaction of a Cylindrical Tank with a Flexible Baseplate
Analytically predicted coupled natural frequencies, response functions, and transient responses are compared with measured values for a partially filled cylindrical tank subject to excitation...

Study on Secondary Compression of Clays
An elastoviscoplastic constitutive model shows that a strain rate effect parameter is related to the coefficient of secondary compression. The relation was verified experimentally by test...

Consolidation Performance of Soft Clays: Part 1. Model
The simplified version of the soil model used in the finite element scheme is a linear anisotropic elastic model. Part 1 defines the parameters needed for the model and the laboratory...

Consolidation of Multi-layered Clay
Three kinds of clay with different plasticity were pre-consolidated from slurry and combined into typical two layered systems consolidated under 40 tf/m**2 with single drainage condition....

A Biogeochemical Evaluation of Disposal Options
This paper briefly reviews some of the factors that should be considered in selecting an environmentally sound disposal method for contaminated sediments on the basis of the biogeochemical...

Shoaling Problems and Improvements Sunny Point, North Carolina
The Military Ocean Terminal, Sunny Point (MOTSU), is located on the Cape Fear River, approximately 18 miles downriver from Wilmington, North Carolina. The facility has experienced significant...

Numerical Modeling of Flow in Hydropower Intakes
To reduce high mortality of downstream migrating juvenile salmon at hydraulic turbines, traveling screens are used to guide the juveniles into a bypass channel for safe passage. However,...

Willamette River Adjustments to New Spur Dikes
Severe bank erosion has caused recent local losses of up to 30 ft (9 m) per year of prime agricultural land along a half-mile (800 m) reach of the Willamette River, Oregon. The U. S. Army...

Physical Hydraulic Modeling for a Small Hydroelectric Redevelopment
In the development of a small hydroelectric project, the operating head on the plant is usually limited. On these projects, the need to minimize head losses and eliminating other factors...

Experimental Study of Stratified Cooling Ponds
Experiments in a laboratory physical model were conducted to analyze the hydrothermal performance of vertically stratified cooling ponds. Temperature, velocity, and fluorescent dye measurements...
