Flexural and Extensional Motion of Moderately Thick Laminated Composite Plates

*A general theory of flexural and extensional motion of moderately thick laminated composite plates is developed for linear elastic materials and small deformation. Interlaminar stresses...*

Beach Change Magnitudes in Relation to Dynamic Phases on Dissipative Coasts

*Dissipative-prone beaches are statistically and aethestically the most significant on open sea sandy coasts. These beaches owe their widespread occurrence to their temporal stability....*

A New Method for Calculating a Mathematical Expression for Streamflow Recession

*An empirical method has been devised to calculate the master recession curve, which is a mathematical expression for streamflow recession during times of negligible direct runoff. The...*

Concentration Measurements in Dense Leachate Plumes Using a Gamma Radiation System

*An automated, nonintrusive technique is discussed that determines salt concentrations in dense leachate plumes. The dense plumes were introduced from a line source into a relatively narrow...*

Integration of Cost and Schedule Control

*This paper presents cost control and schedule control relationships in an integrated manner for an activity/cost account that has a single output scheduled to be produced in a linear,...*

Building Green

*Some scientists say polystyrene insulation may be responsible for up to 40% of the ozone depletion caused by CFCs. That's only one reason why construction and design professionals...*

Properties of Small-Scale Waves in Sheared Gas-Liquid Flows

*Small wind-generated waves are examined theoretically and experimentally in a small laboratory flow system, at conditions close to neutral stability in an attempt to better characterize...*

New Experimental Results on the Parameters Influencing Air-Sea Gas Exchange

*Gas exchange experiments from large linear and circular facilities are presented which provide some more insight into the influence of waves on the gas exchange process. The experimental...*

Stereo Vision Onboard a Vehicle for Obstacle Detection

*We show how two linear cameras, mounted behind the windscreen of a car, can be used to detect the obstacles on the road in real time, even with small computer architectures. Results of...*

Application of Control Theory to Regulate Traffic Flow on Periurban Ringways

*Two on-ramp metering strategies are compared by a simulation study for the Boulevard Peripherique in Paris. The first one is a local strategy, based on linear feedback control theory....*

Rainfall-Reaeration Effects

*The effect of rainfall intensity on reaeration has not been adequately reported in the literature. It is clear that rainfall causes surface turbulence and increases reaeration, and a significant...*

Slug Test: Double-Porosity, Linear Boundary, and Variable Storage Effects

*The intention of this paper is to focus on three aspects of the slug test that are not as familiar as the main analysis techniques: the effects of double-porosity formations, the effects...*

Methods for Designing Hydraulic Aquifer Remediation Techniques

*This paper reports on recent research to develop methods for accommodating uncertainty in designing hydraulic remediation systems for contaminated aquifers. The methods rely respectively...*

Detection of 2-D Nearshore Wave Patterns Using Linear Prediction and SAR Data

*Extraction of wave parameters such as wavelength and direction on radar images is normaly done using fast Fourier transforms (FFT) on typical image size of 256 × 256 which may not be appropriate...*

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...*

Vibrations of Linearly Tapered Cantilever Beams
