Torsion of Reinforced Concrete -A Historical Overview
The story of torsion of reinforced concrete must start with the French professor, C. L. Navier. In his landmark book (Navier, 1826) he rigorously derived the first rational theory for...

Two-Dimensional Ethanol Floods of Toluene in Homogeneous, Unconfined Aquifer Media

Simulation of Multi-Dimensional, Multi-Variate, Non-Gaussian, Homogeneous Stochastic Fields with Applications to Soil Liquefaction

Effects of Soil Nonhomogeneity on SASW Testing

Permafrost Formation and Aggradation in a 23-m High Homogeneous Dyke: A Case-Study

Selecting Tower Cranes
Looming over the skyline like steel dinosaurs, tower cranes can look deceptively similar. But these beasts of burden are not a homogenous species, and selecting and positioning the right...

Homogenization Techniques for Modelling of Randomly Packed Granules

Finite elements for limit analysis of homogenized block masonry walls

Thermal Response in Antenna Under Laser Irradiation
This investigation focuses on the thermal response of two objects under medium-intensity continuous-wave (CW) laser irradiation: (1) a homogeneous slab and (2) a complex electronic component,...

Probabilistic Characterization of Droughts
The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) uses a set of meteorologic and hydrologic variables to create a numerical value for drought severity. The index values are grouped into drought...

Homogeneity Tests Based Upon Gumbel Distribution
This paper analyzes the performance of three homogeneity tests for Gumbel distributed flood flows. The classic Dalrymple test, a method-of-moment Cv test, and a normalized-quantile test...

Treatment of Nonhomogeneous Terms in Flow Models
A study of the relative significance and treatment of nonhomogeneous terms in unsteady open-channel flow simulation models has been conducted. The effects of nonhomogeneous terms including...

A Homogeneous Equilibrium Model for Analysis of Spent Fuel Shipping Containers
Transportation of nuclear spent fuel is inevitable over the coming years. However, in order to ensure the safety of such transport, computational models must be established, which are...

Hydrologic Regionalization Using a Homogeneity Test
A framework is presented for a regionalization method with a region of influence (ROI) approach. The methodology explicitly incorporates a homogeneity test in the process of selecting...

An Application of Nonhomogeneous Poisson Process in Sediment Infiltration Into Gravel Bed
The compound homogenous Poisson process (CNHPP) model (Shen & Todorovic, 1971 ) is found applicable in sediment infiltration into gravel bed due to the unsteady and nonuniform...

Service Records of Chicago District Breakwater Stone and How These Relate to Test Results
Breakwater stone production is limited to areas with geologic outcrops capable of producing large rocks. The most reliable breakwater stone is that which exhibits the highest degree of...

Retrospect and Prospect: Micromechanics
In the mechanics community the term micromechanics is often used to identify scientific efforts in which certain overall macroscopic material response and failure modes are characterized...

Seismic Retrofit Analysis of a Homogeneous Earthfill Dam

Application of the Sampling Theorem to the Representation of Random Fields
A new parametric model is developed for homogeneous Gaussian random fields based on a generalization of the sampling theorem. The model depends linearly on a finite set of discrete values...

Comparison of Wind Cross-Spectral Data with Models
Existing analysis procedures for the prediction of long-span bridge response to wind have until recently neglected the horizontal-vertical cross-spectral components of the wind under the...
