Densification of an Existing Dam with Explosives

Choices Between Micro and Mainframe Computers
The explosion of microcomputers (PCs) has shifted a great amount of engineering computing from mainframes to micros. It has also shifted a lot of programming from FORTRAN to BASIC. This...

The Use of Spread Sheets in Water Resources Planning
With the advent of 'spread sheets' in the microcomputer explosion, a tool is available for the first time to greatly simplify many engineering procedures. This...

Explosion Hazards to Urban Structures
Manufacture, storage and transportation of chemicals capable of exploding at energy levels comparable to TNT has increased in recent years. Land areas adjoining such facilities and transportation...

Explosive Loading of Surface Ships
This paper describes the recent development of numerical methods which have accurately predicted the response of surface ships subjected to underwater explosion tests. The technique couples...
