Alkaline Sludge Stabilization: A Quick Fix and Long Term Sludge Management Option for Burlington, North Carolina

Hydraulic Design of Offshore Breakwater in Sergipe, Brazil
A Petrobras (Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.) marine terminal was recently constructed in Sergipe, Brazil (Figure 1). The offshore breakwater was initially designed in a conventional way, but...

Dynamic Response Characteristics of Jack-Up Drilling Units
The effects of five parameters on the dynamic amplification of the global base shear on a deep water jack-up drilling unit were analyzed using a time domain nonlinear model. The five parameters...

Design and Proposed Construction Techniques for Pangue Dam
The paper describes the site conditions, design and proposed construction methods for the 115 m high Pangue Dam, Chile's first RCC dam. Trial mix design work and test embankments...

Design of Miel II—A High RCC Dam
Miel II Dam is a 141 m high RCC structure designed for the tropical mountains of central Columbia. Interesting features are its height (considerably higher than any existing RCC Dam),...

A Review of Design Criteria for High RCC Dams
The 1980s could be considered to be the decade during which roller-compacted concrete dams came of age. This economic method of construction is sufficiently proven that very large dams...

Construction of Urugua-I RCC Dam
Considerations concerning the RCC construction process and its relation with the design and quality are analyzed. The paper contains topics related to the experience obtained at Urugua-i...

Behavior of Urugua-I Dam
URUGUA-I with its 76 m height is one of the higher lean roller compacted concrete dams. The project includes some outstanding features like the very low cement content and a PVC membrane...
