An Object-Oriented Approach to Wind Safety Analysis

Automated Generation of Floor Framing Plans for Steel Office Buildings

Design Program for Gravity Sanitary Sewers
The Gravity Sewer Design Program Version 2.1 M (GSDP2M) performs the hydraulic design for a conventional gravity sanitary sewer network. GSDP2M is written in standard Fortran 77 for batch...

Gravity Dam Response Including Interaction Effects
The seismic response of 2D gravity dam-reservoir-foundation including the wave absorption effect along the reservoir bed is analyzed in frequency domain using substructure approach. The...

Elasto-Plastic Analysis of Frames with Bending Moments and Axial Force Interaction
A menu driven computer program has been developed for Nonlinear analysis of plane framed structures. This program utilizes the stiffness method. Only material nonlinearity has been considered....

Synthesis of Lateral Structural Bracing with Active Tendons
The idea of combining X bracing, viscoelastic dampers, and active tendons in a structure which has been optimized for gravity loads is presented. It is shown that reduction of the structure's...

Automation in Soils Testing Facility USAE Waterways Experiment Station
Automation is a powerful tool that when used intelligently can increase production, minimize cost, and improve production in any testing laboratory. The Soils Testing Facility (STF) at...

Contribution of Vegetation Roots to Shear Strength of Soil

Analysis of Low Effective Stress Characteristics of Granular Materials in Reduced Gravity

Rehabilitation of Vertical Thin-Walled Breakwater
Physical hydraulic model tests were conducted to measure wave transmission and force characteristics of a partial vertical thin-walled breakwater. Tests were run for the breakwater in...

Infragravity Waves, Longshore Currents, and Linear Sand Bar Formation
A new hypothesis regarding the role of infragravity waves in controlling the formation and offshore migration of linear (2-dimensional) sand bars is presented. The hypothesis is dependent...

Sediment Transport in the Swash Due to Obliquely Incident Wind-Waves Modulated by Infragravity Waves
Swash is described by obliquely incident wind-waves superposed on, and interacting with, long standing waves. The wind waves of the inner surf zone are modulated in amplitude, wavenumber...

Sand Movement by Wind—Optimising Predictive Power
The aim of the work reported here was to develop a model for the efficient utilisation of standard anemometer data for the prediction of potential sand movement. Accurate aeolian sand...

Phase Speed and Angle of Breaking Waves Measured with Video Techniques
The phase speed and incident angle of breaking surface gravity waves in the surf zone are measured using video processing techniques. The analysis of video data follows two lines. The...

The Vertical Structure of Cross-Shore Currents from Wind-Induced Setup
Most of the storm surge models presented in the literature are vertically averaged and calculate only the sea-surface elevation and mean flow. Whereas these models may be adequate for...

Infragravity Wave Motion in a Tidal Inlet
Infragravity waves (20

Effects of Hydroelectric Turbine Passage on Fish Early Life Stages
Turbine-passage mortality has been studied extensively for juveniles and adults of migratory fish species, but few studies have directly quantified mortality of fish eggs and larvae. An...

Measurements of Time Lag in Concrete Gravity Dam Foundations
Uplift measurements from eight large concrete gravity dams show that the time lag between an increase in headwater level and a corresponding increase in uplift pressure is insignificant....

B.C. Hydro's Practice for Assessing the Foundations of Existing Dams on Rock
Since the early 1980's B.C. Hydro has carried out dam safety reviews which included 33 gravity and embankment dams founded on rock. The foundations include moderately jointed,...
