Tension Pile Test
The California Department of Transportation is conducting FULL SCALE AXIAL LOAD TESTS of 34 piles. This research project/proof test is being jointly conducted by public agencies (Caltrans...

Mud Mountain Dam Concrete Cutoff Wall
Mud Mountain Dam is an earth and rockfill flood control dam on the White River. The dam is located approximately 50 km southeast of Seattle, Washington. The dam was constructed in 1941...

Coastal Erosion and Protection in China
The recent coastal erosion in China was becoming increasingly remarkable in the late fifties and had taken a turn for the worse in the late seventies. At present there exist about 70 per...

Factors Responsible for Varying Granulometric Characteristics of Sediments from the Western Nigeria Coastline
The western Nigeria coastline stretches from Badagry in the west (Longitude 5°00'00E), covering a distance of about 275km. Two major geomorphic coastal units are recognized along this...

Recent Bentthic Foraminifera as a Sedimentation Tool in the Nigerian Coastal Environment
The ratio between the living and total populations of benthic foraminifera has been shown to be useful in determining relative rates of sedimentation in paralic and marine environments....

Evolution of the Santee/Pee Dee Delta Complex, South Carolina, USA
The Santee/Pee Dee delta is located on the north-central portion of the lower coastal plain physiographic province of south carolina, USA, which is underlain by pleistocene strand plain...

Environmental Change in Southern Part of Mekong River Delta and Problems of Territorial Rational Use
Mekong river delta (MRD) is a largest plain in South-East Asia. Its southern part as a peninsula is a recently forming plain with low surface and it has been made up by muddy silt. Last...

Mass Transport in Mud Layer Induced by Wave Action
This paper analyzes the mass transport velocity in a two layers system produced by wave action. In a previous paper, Piedra Cueva (1933), a theory for linear water waves propagating in...

Roll Waves in Mud Flow
Permanent roll waves on a shallow layer of fluid mud which is modeled as a power-law fluid is studied. Based on long-wave approximation, momentum integral method is applied to derive the...

Hydraulic Modeling and Mapping of Mud and Debris Flows
The prediction of hyperconcentrated sediment flows on alluvial fans was advanced through the development of a two-dimensional, finite difference flood routing model FLO-2D. The model simulates...

2-D Vertical and 3-D Modelling of Mud Transport in Tidal Flows
Model predictions of a fully three-dimensional sediment transport model are presented for two tidal flow variation cases. A simplified two-dimensional form of the model is applied to demonstrate...

Wave Interaction with Fluid Mud in Rectangular Trench
Wave interaction with fluid mud in a rectangular trench is studied theoretically based on small-amplitude wave theory. The problem was formulated using the Voigt model for an viscoelastic...

Roll-Waves on a Non-Newtonian Mud Layer
This article extends the theory of roll-waves due to Dressler (1949) to a thin layer of mud modeled as a power law fluid. Roll-waves are periodic bores moving at a constant velocity down...

The Transport and Fate of Drilling Muds
The disposal of drilling muds from offshore oil platforms is of concern because of the potential effects of pollution from these muds. Both drilling muds and fine-grained bottom sediments...
