Fault Movement Effects on Buried Oil Pipeline
In earthquake zones pipeline crossings of major active faults are often unavoidable, and movements of these faults can have serious consequences for the pipeline. The ability of a large...

Design/Construct Companies — Builders for Industry
Highlights in the evaluation of design/construct companies. How Koppers is establishing better dialog with all 7,000 professional employees. How Fluor has grown thanks to gutsy hiring...

General Considerations for Seismic Design of Oil Pipeline Systems

Seismic Response of Pipelines on Friction Supports
The nonlinear responses of two pipeline configurations, which are representative of an aboveground crude oil pipeline, are studied. Resistance to horizontal movement is provided by a combination...

ASCE and Nuclear Power Plants
A presentation is given by the President of the ASCE at the Second ASCE Specialty Conference on Structural Design of Nuclear Power Plant Facilities. An underlying interest of ASCE and...

First Bridge Across the Yukon River
Until recently, the Yukon River was a major obstacle in constructing a roadway to the oil-rich North Slope of Alaska. But on October 10, 1975, that obstacle was hurdled when the first...

Pyrolysis as Means of Sewages Sludge Disposal
Pyrolysis of dewatered sewage sludge, or mixtures of organic solid wastes, and sewage sludge, can be a self-sustaining process. The major useful products are char, fuel oils, and noncondensable...

Coordination of Oil Shale Development with Improved Irrigation Water Management

Technique to Develop Atlantic OCS Oil and Gas

Two-Dimensional Heated Pipeline in Permafrost
A finite element model for the filtration consolidation of thawing permafrost is used to analyze the problem of a buried heated oil pipeline in northern climates. Results are given for...

Discrete Gradient Optimization of Water Systems
With the present optimization techniques, diameter of pipes is assumed to be continuous. At the end of the optimization process, the diameter of pipes is then rounded to the nearest available...

Numerical Solution of Multiphase Well Flow
A method is presented for numerically solving immiscible multiphase well flow considering three compressible fluids, two liquids, and one gas, and assuming isothermal conditions. Capillary...

The Trans-Alaska Pipeline Story
A group of seven oil companies has formed the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company to design, construct, operate and maintain the trans-Alaska pipeline system. The total pipeline will be approximately...

Maritime Extensions of Trans-Alaska Pipeline
Recently intensified interest in extracting oil from the North Slope of Alaska has brought into sharp focus possible environmental threats. Coincidental with plans to transport 2,000,000...

Settlement of Pipeline on Thawing Permafrost
A buried oil pipeline in permafrost will thaw the frozen soil around it, and will settle as the thawed soil consolidates. Because the amount of ice in the soil varies from point to point...

Junction Losses in Laminar and Transitional Flows
Analytical and experimental studies were carried out to develop additional data on energy losses at a junction for systems operating in the Reynolds number range of between 10 and 10,000....

Exotic Uses of Aquifers
Ground-water basin managers must be prepared to monitor and counteract potential hazards to conjunctive operation of ground-water basins. These hazards arise from legitimate activities,...

Environmental Effects of Oil Pollution
Until recently, oil pollution has been considered a hazard primarily for its visible effects on birds and beaches. However, greater resource damage may occur from the less visible effects...

Gas Transfer to Blood Flowing in Coiled Circular Tubes
The transfer of physiological gases to blood flowing laminarly in helically coiled permeable-walled tubes was investigated. It is demonstrated, experimentally, as well as theoretically,...

Computation of Oil Pipeline Transients
The equations of waterhammer, as derived by the method of characteristics, are applied to oil pipeline systems. It is shown that oil pipeline transients may be calculated by these methods,...
