Mitigation of Excessive Wastewater Infiltration/Inflow Effects for US Army Installations
Wastewater collection system on military installations require periodic maintenance and repair, and occasionally upgrading. Deterioration of wastewater systems enables the entry of extraneous...

The Dredging Research Program of the US Army Corps of Engineers
The Corps of Engineers Dredging Research Program (DRP) was established in Fiscal Year 1988 as a seven-year program with the objective of developing products that reduce the cost of dredging...

Wave Climate Studies Along the Turkish Coast of the Black Sea
Wind-generated waves produce the most powerful forces to which coastal structures are subjected. Therefore, wave information is required for the proper planning and reliable design of...

Development of the Long Caisson Type Vertical Breakwater
The width of the caisson of a breakwater is calculated based mainly on the wave force expected to act on the caisson. IN this calculation, the assumed wave force is the peak wave force...

Dam Safety Modifications for Clear Creek Dam Manuscript for ASCE Hydraulics Division 1993 National Conference on Hydraulic Engineering
Clear Creek Dam, an unsafe thin arch dam, was stabilized by constructing a concrete gravity buttress on the downstream face. During the Bureau of Reclamation's (Reclamation) Safety Evaluation...

Simulation of Subsurface Drainage of Highway Pavements
An analysis of the drainage of a pavement system from initial saturation incorporates a realistic assessment of the drainable porosity of the base. This analysis indicates that if a granular...

Determination of Hydraulic Roughness for Concrete-Lined, Supercritical Channels
A channel verification program has been initiated by the US Army Engineer District, Los Angeles to determine the hydraulic roughness of flow in a concrete channel. Specifically, this study...

A Finite-Difference Model for 3-D Flow in Bays and Estuaries
This paper describes a semi-implicit finite-difference model for the numerical solution of three-dimensional flow in bays and estuaries. The model treats the gravity wave and vertical...

Soda Dam: Benefits in Performing Three-Dimensional Analysis of a Concrete Gravity Dam

FERC's Evolving Policy on Three Dimensional Stability Analysis of Concrete Gravity Dams

Structural Integrity of Fontana Emergency Spillway

Geotechnical Engineering at the Cowlitz Falls Project

Digital Image Processing: Experiences in the Gulf War
During the 1990-91 conflict in Southwest Asia between Iraq and coalition forces operating with US Armed Forces, the utility of products developed from digital imagery and digital terrain...

Measurement and Analysis of Airside Pavement Roughness at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
In May 1990, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport management contracted with Harding Lawson Associates to implement a pavement management system for that airport. In this implementation,...

Seismic Design of Multi-Story, Wood-Framed Buildings
The seismic design and analysis of wood-framed structures is relatively simple; however, the challenges that present themselves within this design medium are shear and overturning force...

The Optimum Gravity Dam
A method is presented for optimizing the cost of a dam by varying the properties of the material and the shape of the dam to produce the lowest cost water barrier to perform the required...

Discussion of The Optimum Gravity Dam by J. M. Raphael

The Construction of New Victoria Dam, Australia
The paper discusses various aspects of the construction of the New Victoria Dam, a 52 m high, high-paste content RCC dam constructed near Perth, Western Australia. The mix design and its...

Design of Miel II—A High RCC Dam
Miel II Dam is a 141 m high RCC structure designed for the tropical mountains of central Columbia. Interesting features are its height (considerably higher than any existing RCC Dam),...

A Review of Design Criteria for High RCC Dams
The 1980s could be considered to be the decade during which roller-compacted concrete dams came of age. This economic method of construction is sufficiently proven that very large dams...
