Constitutive Relations for Large Deformation Plasticity

*Influence of the choice of measures of stress and deformation upon the representation of constitutive relations for elasto-plastic solids undergoing finite deformation is discussed. The...*

Detection of 2-D Nearshore Wave Patterns Using Linear Prediction and SAR Data

*Extraction of wave parameters such as wavelength and direction on radar images is normaly done using fast Fourier transforms (FFT) on typical image size of 256 × 256 which may not be appropriate...*

Infragravity Waves, Longshore Currents, and Linear Sand Bar Formation

*A new hypothesis regarding the role of infragravity waves in controlling the formation and offshore migration of linear (2-dimensional) sand bars is presented. The hypothesis is dependent...*

Field Measurements of the Vertical Structure of Suspended Sediment

*The use of acoustic backscatter measurements to determine suspended sediment concentration gives a new view of the instantaneous sediment distribution as a function of height above the...*

Adsorption of Lindane onto Whole Soil and Soil Organic Fractions

*The work presented here investigated interactions of the subject pesticide with whole soil and select soil organic fractions and evaluated the commonly applied assumptions that adsorption...*

Composting: Computing the Right Recipe

*A pinch of this and a pinch of that is an adequate instruction for most good cooks. But for composting, facility managers need a recipe that specifies the right ingredients and exact amount,...*

A New Method for Calculating a Mathematical Expression for Streamflow Recession

*An empirical method has been devised to calculate the master recession curve, which is a mathematical expression for streamflow recession during times of negligible direct runoff. The...*

Slug Test: Double-Porosity, Linear Boundary, and Variable Storage Effects

*The intention of this paper is to focus on three aspects of the slug test that are not as familiar as the main analysis techniques: the effects of double-porosity formations, the effects...*

Concentration Measurements in Dense Leachate Plumes Using a Gamma Radiation System

*An automated, nonintrusive technique is discussed that determines salt concentrations in dense leachate plumes. The dense plumes were introduced from a line source into a relatively narrow...*

Integration of Cost and Schedule Control

*This paper presents cost control and schedule control relationships in an integrated manner for an activity/cost account that has a single output scheduled to be produced in a linear,...*

Effect of Gas Flow on Physical Absorption

*Air blowing over a liquid surface can greatly increase the rate of physical absorption of a gaseous component. This increase is associated with the initiation of waves and a change in...*

Properties of Small-Scale Waves in Sheared Gas-Liquid Flows

*Small wind-generated waves are examined theoretically and experimentally in a small laboratory flow system, at conditions close to neutral stability in an attempt to better characterize...*

Rainfall-Reaeration Effects

*The effect of rainfall intensity on reaeration has not been adequately reported in the literature. It is clear that rainfall causes surface turbulence and increases reaeration, and a significant...*

New Experimental Results on the Parameters Influencing Air-Sea Gas Exchange

*Gas exchange experiments from large linear and circular facilities are presented which provide some more insight into the influence of waves on the gas exchange process. The experimental...*

Application of Control Theory to Regulate Traffic Flow on Periurban Ringways

*Two on-ramp metering strategies are compared by a simulation study for the Boulevard Peripherique in Paris. The first one is a local strategy, based on linear feedback control theory....*

Design and Evaluation of Multi-Band Progression Schemes

*Multiband is a new arterial progression scheme that has the capability to assign each directional road section with an individually volume-weighted band. The method offers to the traffic...*

A Stochastic Clustering Model for the Occurrence of Large Earthquakes Along the Central Peruvian Margin

*A stochastic model of a process of cluster centers and subsidiary cluster member processes is presented for the occurrence of large earthquakes along the Central Peruvian Margin. In the...*

Development of a Nonlinear Stochastic FEM and its Application

*A basic formulation is developed for the nonlinear stochastic finite element method. It is based on the perturbation method and retains its advantage, namely that a nonlinear finite element...*

Non-Linear Stochastic Finite-Element Analysis of Continua

*Stochastic equivalent linearization, coupled with appropriate endochronic idealizations of the constitutive law, is extended in this paper to analyse the dynamic response of non linear...*
