Undrained Cyclic Strength of Marine Soils
The results of an extensive cyclic loading test program using six deep ocean soils and one bay mud are presented. Emphasis is placed on presentation of undrained cyclic strength results...

Simulation of Construction Project Duration
MUD (model for uncertainty determination) will simulate the progress under uncertainty of the typical construction project on which the activity durations are not independent of each other....

Strength Characteristics of Bauxite Pozzolana Concrete
Bauxite is currently mined in Ghana on a commercial basis. Beneficiation of the ore is undertaken before it is exported and during the beneficiation process significant amount of the ore...

Dynamic Response of San Francisco Bay Mud

Engineering Properties Affecting Disposal of Red Muds

Runway Rebuilding with Daily Use
At Ontario the main runway was rebuilt and 4-inch bituminous overlay put down at night while the runway was in daily use. Existing pavement was portland cement concrete with bituminous...

Diaphragm Wall Construction Techniques
Diaphragm wall construction is used extensively in Europe and a special plant has been developed for excavating the trench using fluid mud to support the walls. Various types of grab reverse-circulation...

Decrease in Scour Rate of Fresh Deposited Muds
This note comments on the observation that the decrease in the rate of scour of freshly deposited muds is attributed to a gradual development of a resistive bed roughness pattern. Since...

Sand Drain Performance on a San Francisco Bay Mud Site

Detection of Upward Percolation of Saline Lake Water
A method for detecting and locating sources of saline water percolating through the bottom of a lake is described. The method is based on the fact that the salinity of the springs in the...

Performance of Muddy Run Embankment
The instrumentation and field performance of a 250-ft high dam constructed of a micaceous schist are described. Maximum compression of the rockfill was in excess of 8%, compared with 2%...

Eight-Berth Marine Terminal in Deep Bay Mud
Economics dictated a unique construction method for an eight-berth deep-water marine facility which had to be constructed over soft mud up to 135 ft deep. It was necessary to fill over...

Mud Floods Related to the Irazu Volcano Eruptions
The ash erupted by the Irazu Volcano in Costa Rica during its period of explosive activity, 1963–65, destroyed the vegetation of the Reventado River upper basin* The direct consequence...

Stabilization of Fivemile and Muddy Creeks
Steady waste flows from the Riverton Project in central Wyoming increased the annual discharge of two ephemeral streams from 5,000 acre-ft to over 90,000 acre-ft on Fivemile Creek and...

Estuarial Sediment Transport Patterns
Sediment deposits in estuaries are clayey muds; transport of these muds is determined by flocculation characteristic of suspended clays; flocculation process and deposition and scour of...

Drag Coefficients of Locomotion over Viscous Soils
To determine drag of wheel or track moving through mud, concepts of hydrodynamics pertaining to incompressible viscous fluids may be applied; problem is one of viscous flow around partially...
