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...

Criticality of Density Intrusions
Previous analyses of density intrusions indicates that a steady interface cannot be maintained if the front propagates at a speed greater than that of long interfacial waves. Supercritical...

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

Steel Exoskeleton Defines Architecture
The Hotel de las Artes multi-use complex in Barcelona, Spain consists of a luxury hotel/apartment tower, a commercial office building, retail, parking and other amenities. The most prominent...

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...

Wind-Induced Vibrations of Tall Buildings Using Tuned Mass Damper
A Lagrange formulation is applied to tall buildings using tuned mass damper. The resulting equations of motion are analyzed using a frequency window method. The method reduces the computational...

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...

Performance of Upper Stillwater Dam
Upper Stillwater Dam was constructed with roller compacted concrete (RCC) and horizontally slipformed facing. This unique construction method for a concrete gravity dam included no contraction...

Roller Compacted Concrete Tailing Retention Dam
A roller compacted concrete (RCC) dam has been designed for gold tailing impoundment in southeast Alaska. To minimize up front capital costs, the curved gravity dam with multiple outlet...
