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...

Concepcion Dam Design & Construction Problems and Their Solutions
Concepcion Dam is a curved axis gravity structure 68 m high and 695 m long. It supplies water to Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The dam contains 290,000 cubic meters of RCC. Challenges...

Final Design and Construction of Gibraltar Dam Strengthening
The results of a 1983 safety evaluation of Gibraltar Dam indicated that the dam did not meet seismic safety standards. A remedial scheme involving the addition of a roller compacted concrete...

Wind Effect on Oblique Motion of Two Bodies in a Uniform Flow
The wind effect on the general translational motion of a circular cylinder through an inviscid and incompressible fluid, conveyed by a uniform flow at infinity, in the vicinity of another...

Wave Induced Vortex Near Seashore
The vortex motion behind submerged breakwaters in the nearshore region is studied. The RCPWAVE model (Ebersole et al., 1986) is used to calculate the wave field and thus the radiator stresses...

The Generalized Brazier Problem for Orthotropic Straight Tubes of Finite Length
A new engineering approach, based upon a mixed variational functional, is presented for the analysis of the nonlinear static behavior of thin-walled, circular-cross-section cylindrical...

Stability of Beams in Eccentrically Braced Frames
As the link yields and strain hardens in an eccentrically braced frame, the beam segment-outside of the link is subject to a combination of high axial force and bending moment. For certain...

Design Codes for Lunar Structures
The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Manual of Steel Construction is a codification for the design and construction of steel structures. It includes information, some tabular...

The Affordable Space Platform: The STS External Tank
Future development of space requires establishing affordable work platforms in orbit. This paper surveys possible uses of the Space Transportation System's External Tank (ET) to provide...

Steam Injection System for Lunar Concrete
Since January 1989, the Department of Civil Engineering at the United States Air Force Academy has been conducting research on the use of concrete for constructing permanent facilities...

The Proposed NASA Lunar-Based Astronomical Observatories
The goals of the Space Exploration Initiative are a manned return to the Moon, a permanent lunar outpost and then a manned expedition to Mars. This presents an opportunity to construct...

A Three-Dimensional Simulation of Buoyancy and Wind-Induced Circulation and Mixing in the New York Bight
A three-dimensional simulation of the circulation and mixing in the New York Bight has been conducted, forced by (i) wind stress for the year 1987 and monthly-mean heat fluxes at the sea...
