These Proceedings showcase recent advancements in all facets of the geo-industry. Geo-Frontiers was conceived to present the frontier of civil, geotechnical, and geoenvironmental engineering....

Seepage and Transport through Anaerobic Lagoon Liners
In this chapter, the seepage and transport characteristics of lagoon liners are addressed using the soils and hydrogeology of southwest Kansas as examples....

Use of Coal Combustion By-Products as Low-Permeability Liners for Manure Storage Facilities
This chapter presents an overview of the use of compacted flue gas desulfurization (FGD) material as a low-permeability liner. It discusses the engineering characteristics of FGD materials...

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...

Some Historical and Future Aspects of Engineering
This paper considers some historical aspects of engineering mechanics with emphasis on the long historical development of mechanics from the evolution of mathematics and tool-making before...

Irrigation Hydrology: Crossing Scales
Hydrology is the science concerned with distribution, circulation, and properties of water of the earth and its atmosphere, across the full range of time and space scales. Subject matter...

Engineering, Design and Construction of Lunar Bases
How do we begin to expand our civilization to the Moon? What are the technical issues that infrastructural engineers, in particular, must address? This paper has the goal of introducing...

Can Less Be More?
With its higher strength and improved performance characteristics, high-performance steel is indeed an alluring materials. Its cost, however, also is higher, a factor that cannot be ignored....

Breakwaters '99
First International Symposium on Monitoring of Breakwaters
The papers present state-of-art methods and technologies that are used in the structural and environmental monitoring of rubble mound breakwaters. Structural monitoring concerns the structural...

Sponsored by the Fluids Committee of the Engineering Mechanics Division of ASCE. This report provides environmental engineers with a comprehensive...

Under the Microscope
Forensic engineering is typically more complex than engineering design because it requires the integration of specialized knowledge of materials science, structural analysis and design,...

Application of Artificial Neural Networks for Ungauged Catchments Flood Prediction
The prediction of floods with acceptable accuracy is the most important step in designing flood control structures and operating flood damage mitigation projects. It is more difficult...

Going Against the Grain
Conventional wisdom has it that granular soils perform better in mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall systems. Their properties are well known and simple to express in mathematical...

Raising the Bar of BART
Although it was originally designed to withstand a strong earthquake, and did so admirably in 1989, the Bay Area Transit (BART) system was recently evaluated to determine its ability to...
