Evaluation of Cone Penetrometer Grout Backfilling

Verification of Geotechnical Grouting
This volume, Verification of Geotechnical Grouting, consists of a committee report from the ASCE Committee on Grouting and relevant juried...

Compaction Grouting in a Canyon Fill

Compaction Grouting Stops Settlement of an Operating Water Treatment Plant
In early 1978, about a month into full-time operation, the new filter plant building for the water treatment plant for the City of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, experienced distress due...

Soil Improvement to Mitigate Settlements under Existing Structures
Settlements of sites with existing structures are more difficult to mitigate than those of sites without structures. Equipment access, work area, noise, dust, vibrations, and cost are...

A Lagrangian Model for Surface Buoyant Jets
A model is developed to predict the trajectory of a surface buoyant discharge into a large receiving water body. A Lagrangian approach is used to trace the path of a `control volume' of...

Local Scour Potential for Large Bed Material with Shallow Tailwater Depth
Jet momentum acting on a bed particle and submerged jet diffusion theory were employed to derive scour prediction formulas in a plunge pool. Semi-theoretical formulas were suggested for...

Structural Characteristics of the Danby Pipe Renovation System

Rehabilitation of Brick-Lined Railroad Tunnels to Achieve Increased Clearance

Practical Seepage Control in Existing Tunnels

Fracture Mechanics Applied to Geotechnical Engineering
This proceedings, Fracture Mechanics Applied to Geotechnical Engineering, contains theoretical and experimental studies related to the formation,...

Jet Grouting Gains
Jet grouting, a soil stabilization technology developed in Europe, was introduced in the U.S. in the early 1980s. Due, in part, to the use of inappropriate equipment, jet grouting got...

Numerical Simulations of the CCS under the Joint Effects of Coastal Geometry and Surface Forcing
Using the S-Coordinate Rutgers University Model (SCRUM) of Song and Haidvogel(1993), a coupled coastal (86 m depth) and deep ocean (4600 m depth) California Coastal region has been investigated...

Fracture Behavior of Cement Grouted Sand

Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-92/ ASCE 6-92/TMS 602-92)
Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACE 530.1-92/ASCE 6-92/TMS 602-92) is a joint effort of the American Concrete Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and The Masonry...

Remedial Grouting at Calero Dam
This paper describes the design and construction of a remedial grout curtain to resolve a long-standing seepage condition at Calero Dam, located at the south end of the highly-populated...

Ultrafine Cement Tests and Drilling Warm Springs Dam
Ultrafine cement was chosen by the Corps of Engineers for tertiary grouting the Warm Springs Dam because of its ultrafine particle size, low settlement, medium viscosity and longevity....

Compacted Spillway
The compacted spillway (CSW) refers to a spillway accompanied by jets located on its face to dissipate the excess energy. The (CSW) has a standard ogee profile with three jets located...

Sliplining: Design and Installation Considerations for Polyethylene Pipe
The design methodology and installation procedure for polyethylene slipline renewal are discussed. When designing there are two critical phases which must be considered: (1) short-term...
