Dispersion of Coal Particles at the Sea Floor
Due to coal unloading, certain quantities of this material arrive at the sea floor, and may pollute the beaches. This study provides a theoretical analysis and numerical simulations of...

Numerical Model of Finite-Amplitude Wave Refraction

Bed Friction Model of Wave-Current Interacted Flow

Wave Attenuation by Bottom Friction in Currents

Pressure Fluctuations on the Floow of Hydraulic Jumps
This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation regarding the variation of r. m. s. value of pressure fluctuations on the floor of free and forced hydraulic jumps formed...

Stability of Wood Trusses During Construction

Execcessive Floroor Movements—High-Rise Tube Buildings

Behavior of Long-Span Composite Joists

Methods for Predicting Strength in Composite Slabs

Dynamic Criteria for Human Response to Floor Vibrations

Interactive Computer-Aided Design for Composite Beam Floors with Microcomputer Graphics

Seismic Response of Simple Structures with Coulomb Damping
A single story structure incorporating a floor-sliding mechanism for dissipation of vibration energy through Coulomb friction damping is examined. The response of this structure is evaluated...

CAD Maps Ocean Floor
This article describes the Navy's use of computer aided design to map-out a 250 sq mi expansion of an anti-submarine warfare training facility in St. Croix, Virgin Islands. Three hundred...

Solitary Waves Over a Bingham-Plastic Seabed

Testing of Admixtures for Seabed Strengthening
Samples from several offshore soil borings in an area of the Beaufort Sea were subjected to laboratory testing to determine the applicability of this method. The soils were mixed with...

Integrated Design of Concrete Flat Plate Structures
An integrated structural design and drafting system for concrete flat plate floor systems is described. This system provides at a single computer workstation the tools necessary to layout...

Hysteretic Behavior of Composite Diaphragms
Floor systems constructed with steel-deck-reinforced concrete are described. When used to resist lateral loads these systems are referred to as diaphragms. A description of a test arrangement,...

Stochastic Response for Tertiary Systems
A modal superposition method is presented for obtaining the response of a single-degree-of-freedom tertiary subsystem mounted on a primary-secondary system. The method is direct in that...

Notes on Geotechnical Input to the Design of Graving Drydocks
These notes discuss geotechnical considerations in the design of graving drydocks, in particular the floors and walls of the structure. The effect of ground-water conditions in the design,...

Owens Valley, California Basin Management to Meet Both Water Resources and Environmental Goals
The City of Los Angeles imports over 60 percent of its water supply from the Owens River Watershed as part of the resources used in serving 3. 5 million people. As part of this operation,...
