Optimization for Earthquake Loads
Structural optimization for seismic loads can be approached from a deterministic or nondeterministic point of view. Deterministically, the major difference between optimization of statically...

Nonlinear Earthquake Analysis of Concrete Gravity Dams Including Sliding
The sliding stability of a concrete gravity dam during a design earthquake must be investigated to assess the seismic safety of the dam. A new numerical procedure for solving the equations...

On the Generation of Infragravity Waves by Shoaling Multidirectional Waves
The generation of long period waves in shallow water by shoaling multidirectional waves is investigate using both numerical simulations and laboratory experiments. The numerical model...

Measured Total Wave Climate of a Small Craft Harbor
Measurements of waves in a small craft harbor were analyzed for the purpose of determining the existing wave climate energy levels causing the excessive agitation of moored small craft...

A Comparison of Three Wave-Measuring Buoys
We compare the performance of three wave-measuring buoys: a Seatex WavescanTM, an Endeco/YSI WavetrackTM,...

Anomalous Dispersion Paradox in Shallow Water Gravity Waves Shoaling Over Slopping Bottom
Pecularities of celerity spectra of shoaling gravity waves are considered. The results of flume and field experiments focused on the measurements of celerity spectra of shoaling gravity...

Propagation of Linear Gravity Waves Over Slowly Varying Depth and Currents
A detailed derivation of some kinematic and dynamic properties linear surface gravity waves-current interaction. The obtained expressions, which are exact within the framework of linear...

Breaking Wave Measurement by a Void Fraction Technique
Breaking of steep surface gravity waves in seas under moderate to strong wind forcing always involves the entrainment of air into the water column below the air-sea interface. As such,...

Modified Asphalt Binders - How Do They Compare?
This report summarizes some of the research that the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) has conducted on asphalt modification of airport/airfield pavements. these laboratory...

Environmental Effects of Flooding at a USCG Base
In July of 1993, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Base St. Louis facility was flooded. As the flood waters receded and cleanup efforts were initiated, a number of environmental issues had to...

Revised Hydraulic Design of the Rio Hondo Flood Control Channel
The US Army Engineer District, Los Angeles has completed a major review study of the Los Angeles County Drainage Area (US Army, 1992) and has determined that the existing flood control...
