Effects of Simulated Ice on the Performance of Price Type-AA Current Meter Rotors
Slush ice readily adheres to the standard metal rotor of the winter Price type-AA current meter and affects the ability of the meter to measure the flow velocity accurately. Tests conducted...

Comparison of Current Meters Used for Stream Gaging
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is field and laboratory testing the performance of several current meters used throughout the world for stream gaging. Meters tested include horizontal-axis...

The Variability of Large Alluvial Rivers
Written by river engineers and earth scientists who are experts in river morphology, dynamics, and control, The Variability of Large Alluvial Rivers...

Regulatory Views on Seismic and Fault-Displacement Parameters Needed for a Geologic Repository Design
This paper presents the regulatory views of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff on some of the significant issues related to the seismic and faulting design of a geologic repository....

An Overview of Analysis and Regulatory Needs to Determine Seismic Loads for Design of a High-Level Waste Geologic Repository
Determination of seismic loads and faulting hazard for siting, design and performance evaluation of a high-level nuclear waste repository facility can be accomplished with state-of-knowledge...

Performance Goal Based Seismic Design Criteria for High Level Waste Repository Facilities
This paper proposes a set of deterministic seismic design and evaluation criteria based upon a specified probabilistic seismic performance goal for High Level Waste Repository (HLWR) facilities....

Geometric Models of Faulting at Yucca Mountain
Yucca Mountain, Nevada, is currently being studied as a potential site for a geologic repository of high-level radioactive waste. Alternative conceptual tectonic models are expected to...

Dynamic Response of Tunnels in Jointed Rocks
We describe the application of the Discrete Element Method (DEM) to the dynamic analysis of the response of tunnels in jointed rocks to earthquake loading. In situations where large motions...

Coolidge Dam Abutment Stability and Stabilization
This paper focuses on left abutment stability assessments and stabilization measures at Coolidge Dam, Arizona. Initial assessment of abutment stability was based on limited rock strength...

To the Limits of Shotcrete Linings
In the 1950s for the first time shotcrete was used because an essential support measure to guarantee the stability of an underground opening in Austria, Detzelhofer (1). Since that time...
