Linearisation and Offshore Fatigue Reliability
In determining the force effects due to wave action on offshore structures it is conventional to use an equivalent linearisation to convert wave velocities to forces via Morison's equation....

Estimates of Extreme Wind Distribution Tails
The assumption that extreme winds have a Gumbel distribution appears to yield unrealistically high failure probability estimates for wind-sensitive structures. For this reason we study...

Sampling Errors in U. S. Extreme Wind Records
A study of design level extreme wind speeds showed that sampling errors were the primary cause of station to station variability. A method for decreasing sampling errors in design wind...

Results of a Monitoring Program of Moored Ship Response to Gravity and Infragravity Waves
An automated monitoring system was designed and operated at a coal terminal in Los Angeles Harbor, and a container terminal in Long Beach Harbor, to obtain the complete six degree-of-freedom...

Ship Simulation of the Houston Ship Channel, Houston, Texas
The Houston Ship Channel (HSC) consists of approximately 65 miles of improved deep-draft channels. The present channel is 400 ft wide and 40 ft deep at mean low tide for most of the channel...

An Overview: Wetland Restoration, Protection, and Establishment by Beneficially Using Dredged Material
Dredged material has been used beneficially by mankind for many years; in the past two decades it has purposely been used to restore and protect existing wetlands, and to establish new...

Model Study to Determine the Wave Forces Acting on the St. Lucie Velocity Caps

A Three-Dimensional Tidal Circulation Model Based on Semi-Implicit Finite-Difference Methods

Experiments with Wind Effects on Pavement Runoff

The Landfall of Hurricane Hugo

Contaminant Groundwater Interception—RMA

Removal of Extremely Low Levels of Munitions in a Drinking Water Supply

Evaluation of Seismic Vulnerability of Highway Bridges in the Eastern United States
For high risk seismic zones such as California, the state-of-the-art in earthquake resistant design for new highway bridges has been well advanced, especially since the damaging 1971 San...

Wave Exciting Forces on a Platform Fixed in Nonlinear Shallow Water Waves
This paper presents the result of an experimental observation of cnoidal waves and the nonlinear wave loads on a fixed barge in a 2-dimensional wave tank. The Ursell numbers of the waves...

Wave Effects on Offshore Structures—Some Recent Research
The present paper summarizes methods of estimating wave effects on offshore structures, and highlights a selection of recent related research. Initially, certain aspects relating to the...

Probability of Wave Force on Horizontal Members
This study is motivated by the works of Isaacson and Subbiah (1990) to evaluate the vertical wave force on a rigid horizontal member located in the vicinity of still water level with its...

Reliable Design-Wave Force Predictions for Seabed Pipelines
The results of three separate field research projects have been pulled together to provide a design formula for maximum wave-induced horizontal force on a submarine pipe. This broadly-applicable...

Static Wave Force Procedure for Platform Design
Since results from the Ocean Test Structure were presented at Civil Engineering in the Oceans IV in 1979, there have been numerous laboratory experiments and a few full-scale measurements...

Wave Slamming on a Horizontal Circular Cylinder
The present paper describes an experimental study of the wave slamming force on a horizontal circular cylinder located near the free surface. The vertical force on a cylinder and the corresponding...

Pore-Water Extraction from Unsaturated Tuffs Using One-Dimensional Compression
To support the study of the unsaturated-zone hydrochemistry at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, a one-dimensional compression system was developed and tested to extract unaltered and uncontaminated...
