Relationship Between the Fluid Velocity Moment and Sediment Transport in Oscillatory Flow

Sediment Transport in Sheet Flow Regime

Investigation of Wave-Induced Oscillations in Sewage Outfalls
The work described in this paper deals with the effect of wave action on the hydraulic performance of a sewage effluent outfall. The outfall under consideration is an inverted siphon....

Performance of Viscoelastic Dampers in World Trade Center Towers
The viscoelastic damper was conceived and developed as a part of the structural design for the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, New York. They are an integral and an essential part...

Prototype Wave Power Stations in Norway
The KVAENER multi resonant oscillating wave column (MOWC) power station is both described and discussed. The power station, which is now on-line, is designed to produce 1 MW of peak electrical...

Wave Energy Research in Ireland
Measurements taken at several locations off the Irish coast show that the average power intensity available to Ireland well exceeds 20 kW/m. Several projects have been undertaken in an...

Optimal Strategies for Phase Control of Wave Energy Devices
Phase control has previously been proposed for increasing energy output from wave power devices, and latching strategies have been tested for point absorbers and for pneumatic devices....

Two New Machines for Ultra Low-Head Hydropower
This paper outlines the development of two new types of positive displacement ultra low-head hydropower machines, the AUR Water Engine (AURWE) and the Salford Transverse Oscillator (STO)....

The Effects of Vertical Earthquake Motions on the Response of Highway Bridges

Optimal Collection of Data for Parameter Identification
In this paper, the author attempts to study the optimal spacing of measurements for a structural system modelled by a single-degree-of-freedom oscillator so that the variance of one or...

Oscillating Fluid Versus Oscillating Bed

A BEM-Perturbation Technique for Membrane Structures
Most of the previous work has concentrated on the free vibration problem. The present paper examines the problem of low frequency forced vibrations of a membrane due to an oscillatory,...

Vibrations of Submerged Solids in a Vibrating Container
Dynamic forces on a vibrating submerged solid cylinder in both closed and open-top rectangular containers are evaluated. The submerged cylinder is attached to the base of a dynamically-excited...

First Passage Time for Several Nonlinear Oscillators

Incipient Resuspension of Silt-Clay Sediment
The laboratory study of incipient motion of fine-grained cohesive sediment under oscillatory flow, unidirectional flow and the combined effects of oscillatory and unidirectional flow is...

The Uniformly Valid Asymptotic Solutions for Spherical Thin Shells with Constant Thickness under Edge Loads

Hydrodynamic Effect on Circular Dam-Reservoir System Due to Earthquakes

Mechanics of a Pneumatic Tide Gauge

Effect of Pressure Gradient on the Motion of a Sphere in an Oscillating Fluid
