Effects of Golf Course Management on Pesticide and Fertilizer Fate

Pros and Cons of Developing Recreational Facilities on Closed Landfills

Navigation of Autonomous Mobile Robots
An integrated navigational system for autonomous mobile robots features a primary navigator, such as an inertial navigation or a dead-reckoning system, and a secondary navigator. The secondary...

Fast-Track Stadium
The project team selected to design and construct Egypt's cable-supported Cairo Stadium Indoor Sports Complex in late 1989 faced a hard-and-fast deadline. Just 18 months later,...

A Decision Support System for the Operation of Joint-Use Parking
A prototype decision support system (DSS) developed for streamlining the operation of a joint-use parking program is discussed. The DSS involves a combined usage of geographic information...

A CADD Program for Simulating Turning Vehicles
The turning capability of one or more 'design' vehicles and their swept paths has a significant influence on the layout of transportation facilities such as roadway intersections, parking...

Vibration of Composite Floors
An AISC/CISC guideline on floor vibration is being prepared to help practitioners design to avoid floor vibration problems and to remedy problems that occur in practice. This paper provides...

Seismic Stabilization of St. Joe State Park Tailings Dams
Tailings dams constructed by the `upstream' method are known to be seismically vulnerable, but field experience indicates that their seismic stability usually improves following termination...

Certified Safety Assessment of Zoccolo Dam
The paper reports one of the activities carried out in the framework of a so called `certified assessment of safety' program activated by ENEL SpA - Italian National Electric Board - in...

Interim Dry Storage of CANDU Fuel
The Canadian approach to permanent disposal of used CANDU fuel is directed toward its storage in suitable containers emplaced into an underground, stable, plutonic rock formation. Reprocessing...

Spent Fuel Interim Storage: French Experience with Dry Vaults
This paper explains the main criteria which are applied as well as measures taken to preserve cladding integrity for the foreseen duration of storage. It discusses in detail the double...

Hanford Waste Vitrification Project Overview and Status
The Hanford Waste Vitrification Project (HWVP) is being constructed at the U.S. Department of Energy's Hanford Site in Richland, Washington. The paper gives an overview of the HWVP which...

Geophysical Investigations of Concealed Faults Near Yucca Mountain, Southwest Nevada
Detailed gravity and ground magnetic data collected along surveyed traverses across Midway Valley, on the eastern flank of Yucca Mountain, Nevada reveal that these methods can be used...

Selection of the Initial Access for the Yucca Mountain Exploratory Studies Facility
This paper describes the activities undertaken to examine relevant factors and select the initial access for the Yucca Mountain exploratory studies facility. To aid their decision, the...

Application of Monte Carlo Neutron Photon to Hanford Waste Vitrification Plant Design Analysis
The Monte Carlo Neutron Photon (MCNP) computer program ('MNCP - A General Monte Carlo Code for Neutron and Photon Transport, Version 3A') (in PC and mainframe versions) has been used for...

Mechanical Design of the Storage Tubes in the HWVP Canister Storage Building
Canisters of high-level waste from the Hanford Waste Vitrification Plant (HWVP) will be stored in an adjacent facility, the Canister Storage Building (CSB). The canisters are stored vertically...

Implications of Stability Analysis for Heat Transfer at Yucca Mountain
An analytical solution has been obtained to the stability problem for an infinite horizontal layer of gas with its humidity constrained to 100%. Latent heat transfer makes convective heat...

Management of Spent Nuclear Fuel in Sweden—Experiences and Plans
The principle adopted for the management of spent nuclear fuel from the Swedish reactors is final disposal without reprocessing. During the 1980ies systems and facilities for the transport...
