Philosophy for Treatment of High-Pressure Natural Gas Pipelines at Active Fault Crossings
Natural gas from fields in the overthrust belt of southwest Wyoming will be collected and transported to Southern California. The proposed Kern River Pipeline will transport gas to Daggett,...

Comparison of Traffic Signal Systems in Australia and North America
Dynamic coordinated traffic signal systems were developed in Australia in the 1970's, and are now installed in many countries. In contrast, strong interest in new generation...

Autocorrelation Functions for Offshore Geotechnical Data
Autocorrelation functions are described. Data from several North Sea sites are analyzed with respect to the vertical and horizontal autocorrelation of a number of soil properties. Based...

Largest and Characteristic Earthquakes in the U.S. East of the Rocky Mountains
A new statistical procedure is proposed for the estimation of maximum earthquake magnitude M in intraplate regions. Starting from a historical catalog of events and a seismotectonic classification...

The Prefab Tunnel
Jacking a prefabricated concrete arch through a railroad embankment to provide a new access ramp to the Don Valley Parkway in Toronto was done for the first time in North America. In September...

Advances in Pipeline Materials and Design in Europe and North America

Estimating Earthquake Sizes in the Basin and Range Province, Western North America: Perspectives Gained from Historical Earthquakes
Thirty eight historical earthquake from the Basin and Range province were used to examine three aspects of earthquake size and behavior: 1) the maximum background earthquake, 2) earthquake...

The Truss-Beam and Space Technology
A method is presented herein to determine the dynamic characteristics of truss-beam systems for both planar and space structures. Results from this approach are compared with those of...

Meta-Site: Water Distribution System Analysis Software
Many local municipalities now require a network analysis for all proposed additions to their water distribution systems. A graphically oriented, user-friendly program is being developed...

Reliance on Structural Controls for Water Supply Protection in Urbanizing Watersheds
The watershed is the source of pollutants which can contaminate the water supply reservoir. It is far preferable to implement an affordable watershed management plan that keeps contaminants...

Numerical Modeling of the Vertical Salinity Distribution in Coastal Canals
A two dimensional (laterally averaged) numerical model of estuarine circulation has been developed for the prediction of the vertical salinity distribution in coastal canals. The model...

Data-Collection Program for Pamlico River Estuary Model Calibration and Validation
An investigation is being conducted to collect and interpret continuous records relating to the flow characteristics of the Pamlico River Estuary, North Carolina, and to calibrate and...

Nonpoint Pollution Management Plans for Multijurisdictional Watersheds: Case Study of Successful North Carolina Programs

Soil Water Movement in Glacial Till: A Case Study in Central South Dakota
Between 1985 and 1987, the CENDAK Drainage Steering Committee conducted several investigations to assess the drainage needs for a proposed large-scale irrigation project in central South...

Advances in Pipeline Materials
Pipelines transport water, storm run-off, process wastes, petroleum, natural gas, slurries, solids, sewage, steam and other fluids either by gravity or under pressure. Pipelines are also...

Use of Scrap Tires to Harness Wave Energy
A 2.5 meter diameter wave powered pump, fabricated from scrap tires was tested from May 24, 1988 to October 1988 in the Atlantic Ocean at the North Carolina Army Corp of Engineers Waterways...

Power Conditioning Options for Variable-Speed Ocean Energy Conversion Systems
As part of a recent wave energy feasibility study for the coast of North Carolina (SEASUN Power Systems, 1988), a survey was conducted of power conditioning and transmission technology....
