The Influence of Seasonal Climatic Variability on Shallow Infiltration at Yucca Mountain
To analyze infiltration and the redistribution of moisture in alluvial deposits at Yucca Mountain, water content profiles at a 13.5 m deep borehole were measured at monthly intervals using...

Determination of Water Content in Unsaturated Flow Experiments Using TDR and Capacitance
Electromagnetic techniques have been used for many years for the determination of moisture content in materials. We are adapting two of these techniques to the estimation of moisture in...

Wetting Front Instability in an Initially Wet Unsaturated Fracture
Experimental results exploring gravity-driven wetting front instability in a pre-wetted, rough-walled analog fracture are presented. Initial conditions considered include a uniform moisture...

Evaluation of Plants for Coastal Dune Stabilization
The dune stabilization system used in the Phoenix Condominiums project can be used to enhance dunes all along the Atlantic and Gulf Coast. The plants and technology are available, which...

A Revised Snowstorm Maximization Method for Canadian Boreal Regions
A proposed refinement in the development of design snowpacks for use in the derivation of probable maximum floods (PMF) estimates in the Canadian Boreal is presented. Shortcomings in the...

A Probabilistic Approach to Estimate Design Parameters for Flood Control Projects
The purpose of this paper is to provide engineering consultants with an improved method to estimate design parameters for various return periods in rural areas. The proposed method combines...

The ASCE Neutron Probe Calibration Study: Overview
A workshop was held at Logan, Utah to gather field information on neutron probe calibration and operation. Several techniques and instruments were compared. This paper serves to establish...

Error Analysis of Bulk Density Measurements for Neutron Moisture Gauge Calibration
Six bulk density sampling methods were evaluated for use in neutron gauge calibration. All six methods provided estimates of bulk density which were generally within 5% of bulk density...

Performance Factors of Neutron Moisture Probes Related to Position of Source on Detector
The performances of two commercially available neutron moisture probes with different source-detector placement were evaluated. The probes were the Troxler with the neutron source placed...

Real Time Forecast of Landfill Leachate Flow
A computer model was written to describe the generation of landfill leachate due to large precipitation events. The landfill is described as a multi-layer system, each layer having its...

Lime Treatment of Asphalt Mixtures in Improving Resistance to Moisture
Airport flexible pavement is susceptible to moisture damage. Lime treatment of asphalt pavement is considered to be an effective method in improving resistance to moisture. It has been...

Performance of Horizontal and Vertical Barriers
Horizontal and vertical barriers have been used on transportation facilities to control expansive soils and minimize their damages. The effort is to minimize moisture change in the soil...
