Long Term Performance of Raft and Footing Foundations Above Clayey Silt
Two multistorey buildings have recently been constructed on a 30-m thick layer of clayey silt in downtown Fredericton, New Brunswick. The Bank of Montreal building is ten storeys high...

Lateral Foundation Deformations for a Marine Test Fill

A Comparison of Three Soil Improvement Techniques to Densify Liquefaction Susceptible Sands
Deep soil densification programs using vibratory probe compaction, vibro-replacement and terraprobe methods have been completed on a naval submarine base to limit potential settlements...

Vacuum-Assisted Consolidation of a Hydraulic Landfill
As part of the Pier 300 42-acre site ground modification project, a field test of vacuum-assisted preconsolidation of hydraulic fill was studied. The objective of the test was to assess...

Test and Prediction Results for Five Spread Footings on Sand
A separate volume summarizes this prediction symposium. It is available from ASCE in New York and is entitled as listed above. This prediction event took place during the conference and...

Poorer Is Riskier: Opportunity for Change
With regard to water resources, it is appropriate to build upon two interacting themes of the late Aaron Wildavsky (1988). The first of Wildavsky's themes is the idea of resiliency. The...

Waste Minimization and Recycling by Microfiltration during Nitrocellulose Manufacturing
A plant survey was conducted to determine the amount of nitrocellulose (NC) discharged with process water from each of five sequential NC purification processes. Wastewater samples were...

Assessing the Reliability of Low Pressure Membrane Systems for Microbial Removal
Low pressure membrane systems are used for microorganisms control in water treatment processes. In this article, the efficiency and reliability of this process is evaluated. Microorganism...

Fouling of Nanofiltration Membranes by Natural Organic Matter
Nanofiltration membranes (with pore sizes on the order of 10-9 m) have been shown in pilot plant studies to provide a very effective means of removing...

A comparison between computed and measured bed evolution in a river bend
A shallow-water scheme with a movable bed has been employed in order to check the reliability of computations related to the bed evolution when a substantially three-dimensional phenomenon...

Measurement of Turbulent Properties in a Natural System
Instruments designed to measure flow properties in stratified estuaries, lakes and oceans are reviewed. Emphasis is given to the measurement of turbulent fluxes and recent developments...

Using Drop Structures for Stream Gaging
A long term monitoring program of 15 watersheds, for the purpose of studying channel response to erosion control measures being constructed in north Mississippi, is being conducted by...

A Computerized Open Channel Flow Measurement Device
This is a technical information paper with the intention of introducing a new product. It is not the intent of the author to use this as a marketing tool. However, it is the intent to...

Demonstration Project for Scour Instrumentation
A Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Demonstration Project was developed to facilitate technology transfer of instrumentation related research to the highway industry. The objective...

Laboratory and Field Evaluation of Acoustic Velocity Meters
A project is currently underway to evaluate the performance of 27 acoustic flowmeters used at Hoover, Davis, and Parker Dams on the lower Colorado River. Field surveys and laboratory testing...

Mapping 2-D and 3-D Velocity Components in Circular Conduits Using an Electromagnetic Current Meter and a 5-Hole Pilot Probe
The techniques presented in this paper facilitate the visualization of the two-dimensional and three-dimensional flow fields at arbitrary sections in a conduit. They have been used to...

Velocity and Turbulence Measurement from the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers
This paper presents a data measurement program that was used for collecting the velocity data associated with barge-tow traffic on the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers and includes a discussion...

Velocity Measurements by the One-Orange Method
Application of the most sophisticated instrumentation - so called state-of-the-art equipment - is not always necessary nor even desirable for measurement of mean velocities in verticals,...

Experimental Design and Measurement Techniques for Investigation of Two-Phase Flow
Discussing the relevant hydraulical and inter-phasial processes of two-phase flow in open tanks the necessary requirements for set-up and operation of physical model studies are worked...

Sediment Measurement Instrumentation A Personal Perspective
The development of the suspended sediment samplers in the 1940s was a major contribution to the science of sedimentation and provided for the proper development of dams, reservoirs, and...
