Shoals System Capabilities for Hydrographic Surveying

Site Investigation Surveys for Dredging Projects

3-D Coordinates - A Universal Rectangular Coordinate System for a GIS and Other Spatial Databases
Rules of solid geometry and 3-dimensional (3-D) rectangular coordinate systems are well known and used in many applications. Points on or near the earth's surface have long been described...

A Survey of Stormwater Infiltration Basins in the Puget Sound Region
A survey of 23 infiltration basins in the Puget Sound area was conducted to gain information on the performance of these systems and the degree of compliance with state agency guidelines....

Hyper-Geodesic Structures: Excerpts from a Visual Catalog
A class of hyper-geodesic surface structures is presented. The surfaces of known polygons, polyhedra, plane and space tessellations, higher dimensional polytopes can be subdivided into...

Explorations in Geodesic Forms
Geodesic forms constitute an important family of structural systems. The objective of the paper is to show how the concepts of a mathematical tool called formex algebra and its programming...

Summary of Highway Product Evaluation Practices and HITEC Needs Survey
This report (CERF No. 94-5012) contains the results from a survey conducted by the Civil Engineering Research Foundation (CERF), the research affiliate of the American Society of Civil...

Wanapum Dam Embankment Settlement Study
This paper discusses the long term vertical movements of a zoned earth embankment. Vertical movement of the Wanapum Dam embankment has been monitored since its completion in 1964. The...

Inertially Favorable Trajectories for Robot Motion in Space
Robot manipulators generally display non-linear coupled dynamic forces which increase with speed. Efficiencies can be achieved by finding trajectories which take advantage of those inertial...

Vessel Positioning, Survey Controls and Dredge Monitoring Systems

Estimating Network Model Parameters from Mail Survey Data
Network models are generally based on a four-step modeling process; trip generation, trip distribution, modal split, and trip assignment. Microcomputer implementations of these steps have...

Better Ways to Update Trip Matrices
Updating origin-destination (OD) trip matrices usually involves considerable survey costs, so engineers are often forced to use dated OD information, which can seriously undermine the...

Using License Plate Survey Data in Transportation Planning Applications
This paper is a presentation of the methodology used by the Baltimore Regional Council of Governments to conduct a multi-faceted study for the Maryland Aviation Administration, which operates...

Summary of Questions/Answers and Panel Discussions on Session VI: Guidelines for Instrumentation and Monitoring

Geophysical Investigations of Concealed Faults Near Yucca Mountain, Southwest Nevada
Detailed gravity and ground magnetic data collected along surveyed traverses across Midway Valley, on the eastern flank of Yucca Mountain, Nevada reveal that these methods can be used...

Photogeologic Reconnaissance of X-Tunnel at Little Skull Mountain
An underground structure known as X-tunnel was investigated for the viability as an underground deep based missile system that included the capability to maintain survivability following...

Review of International Near-Field Modelling for High-Level Waste Disposal
An international survey and review is being conducted on the latest developments in modelling of near-field performance, with particular emphasis on the conceptual and mathematical models...

Assessment and Mitigation for Endangered Vernal Pool Invertebrates
The USFWS is considering declaring five species of vernal pool invertebrates endangered. Among these are the Vernal Pool Fairy Shrimp (Branchinecta lynchi), the California Linderiella...

Civil Engineering Computer Usage Survey
A survey of the members of the Columbia Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) was conducted. The purpose of the survey was to determine the computer usage of practicing...
