These papers were presented at Coastal Zone '89 the Sixth Symposium on Coastal and Ocean Management held in Charleston, South Carolina, July 11-14, 1989. This volume is a...

Dynamic Maps for Seismic Risk Reduction and Effects of Soil Conditions
In order to perform useful vulnerability and risk evaluations, it is essential to have at one's disposal an automatic procedure of elaboration which provides answers in real...

The Disaster of Stava/Northern Italy

A Railway Protection—Coastal Structures on Tyrrehenian Calabrian Coastline
The stretch of Calabrian coastline facing the Tyrrehenian Sea has for many years undergone severe erosion, exposing the Battipaglia-Reggio Calabria railtrack to the direct action of waves....

A Possible Definition of the Input Function for a Rainfall-Runoff Model with Lumped Parameters
It may be useful to introduce, instead of a 'mean areal rainfall', another input function, defined as that input which is transformed by the model into a known...

Milan's Model Metro
A number of innovative geotechnical methods were used at the extension of the Milan, Italy, subway. Jet grouting, a technique used only a few times in the United States, was notable among...

Deformation Characteristics of Cohesionless Soils from In Situ Tests
This paper is a summary of seven years experience gained by the National Electricity Board of Italy (ENEL), ISMES and Technological University of Turin in assessing these parameters using...

Jet Grouting: Snail's Pace of Adoption
Jet grouting is grouting of soil, but the process, the equipment and the subsurface product are different from the familiar ones. Here the cement grouting is mixed in situ with the surrounding...

The Sand Mattress Method of Slope Protection
The sand mattress concept offers promise as an economical alternative to sand bag armor for two distinct applications: (1) slope protection for exploratory islands and/or causeway facilities,...

Issues and Problems of Coastal Management in Italy
The paper aims to outline present situation and possible future developments especially concentrating on management of beaches and water fronts. Population density had been for many centuries...

Examples of Sediment Distribution in the Italian Adriatic Coast. A Comparison Between the Shepard and the Nota Textural Classifications
Four sectors of the western Adriatic coast, each with a different feature, represent the test areas to evidence the differences between the two textural classifications of sediments by...

Erosive Processes in the Littoral of the Venice Lagoon (Italy)
The Lagoon of Venice is separated from the sea by a thin stretch of littoral, the completeness of which is vital for the survival of Venice. This littoral is dramatically threatened by...

Coastal Zone Management in Emilia-Romagna, Italy
The beaches of the seaside resorts in the Emilia-Romagna region are of great importance to the regional economy. During the last decades, certain natural and man-induced developments have...

Behaviour and Strength of Steel Frames with Semi-Rigid Connections
A research study was started at the Politecnico of Milan (Italy) to investigate the influence of the main governing parameters on the behaviour and strength of flexible frames. A sophisticated...

Toxic Contaminant Uptake in Dredged Sediment Marshes
Dredged sediments from the proposed enlargement of the Lower Mississippi River from Venice, Louisiana to the Gulf of Mexico would be primarily utilized to create up to 28,000 hectares...

Chemical Grouting for Construction of 8 Foot Diameter Tunnel Through Little Italy Baltimore, Maryland

Dynamic Shakedown in Elastic-Plastic Bodies
The shakedown problem was first formulated for quasi-static actions, i.e., in absence of inertia forces. In the last 10 yr, with reference to dynamic processes, a more general formulation...

Limit Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Arch Bridges
The analysis of limit load and deformations of arch bridges can be cast as linear programming problems by idealizing them as plane structures that consaist of discretized elastic elements...

Parameter Estimation of Streeter-Phelps Models
A method for the estimation of the parameters of generalized Streeter-Phelps river quality models is developed in this paper. The method is quite flexible since it does not require any...
