Coastal engineering is a specialized discipline of civil engineering that encompasses a wide variety of activities related to harbors, navigation, shore erosion and storm protection. Because...

Should the U.S. Accept the Concept of Navigable Depth?
Navigable depth is defined as the maximum depth of water from the chart datum that is safe to accept as the bed of the channel, such that damage does not occur to a ship's hull and maneuverability...

A Multiple Disk Centrifugal Pump as an Artifical Ventricle
A pulsatile, multiple disk, centrifugal pump has been analysed and tested for potential use as an artificial ventricle. The pump is similar to a Tesla Turbine design which consists of...

Circulation Modelling and Water Quality Prediction
A circulation and water quality modelling system for use in areas where horizontal transport is dominating is presented. The water quality can either be described as BOD-DO processes or...

Tide- and Wind-Driven Flushing of Boston Harbor, Massachusetts
The flushing of Boston Harbor, a shallow, tidally dominated embayment with little fresh water input, is investigated using a depth-averaged model. The modeled tidal currents exhibit strong...

DYNLET1: Network Model for Tidal Inlet Dynamics
This paper introduces DYNLET1, an efficient, versatile, and accurate one- dimensional numerical model for computing tidal flow in a system of interconnecting channels and bays. Drawing...

Coastal Engineering Practice
This proceedings contains 70 papers presented at the American Society of Civil Engineers Specialty Conference Coastal Engineering Practice '92 held at Long Beach, California,...

Engineering Answers to Groundwater Impact Questions Using a Geographic Information System (GIS)
Environmental concerns have raised complex questions about the impacts of increased groundwater levels adjacent to navigational pools along the Red River, Louisiana. Previous studies had...

Securing Strategic National Security Objectives Through Maritime Activities
The President's national security strategy envisions a healthy and growing economy, wise environmental stewardship and a strong military as part of his plan to meet and to fulfill the...

Riprap Design in Marine Terminals
Navigation vessels in otherwise quiescent waterways sometimes generate forces that require stabilization of the bed or banks. Since riprap is an accepted and dependable means to armor...

Risky Business: Can We Believe Port Risk Assessments?
What is the risk that a maritime incident resulting in catastrophic consequences (environmental damage or loss of life) could occur in a U.S. port or waterway? How does one calculate the...

Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbors Model Enhancement Program
In response to the expansion of oceanborne world commerce, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, in coordination with the Los Angeles District of the U.S. Army Corps of...

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
