High-speed Video Analysis of Sediment-Turbulence Interaction
Results from the analysis of high-speed video recordings of particle motion and simultaneous flow visualizations in the near wall region of a turbulent open channel flow are presented....

Microstructure, Image Analysis, and Fly Ash in Hardened Cement Paste

Advances in Dry Shotcrete Technology by Means of Microsilica
During the last decade microsilica has been increasingly used to improve both wet and dry mix shotcrete. In the traditional dry process microsilica is blended in the dry mixture. Since...

Simulation of Buoyant, Miscible Liquid Plumes in Heterogeneous Aquifers
Laboratory experiments have been conducted in a sand tank with a single heterogeneity into which NaNO3 is continuously injected. From samples along, across and over the depth of the tank...

Relationships Between Flow and Benthic Communities
Current flows can affect directly factors critical to the survival of benthic communities, including the availability of food and nutrients, the chemical quality of water surrounding benthic...

Incipient Motion in Gravel-Bed Rivers
Incipient motion processes are reviewed for bed material in gravel-bed rivers. Prediction difficulties are identified. Research results are reported for field and flume studies to investigate...

Scour Prediction Model at Bridge Abutments
A model to predict local abutment scour is presented. The model is based on a large number of laboratory experiments over the past half century. The dependent variable, a ratio that includes...

Particle Tracking Model for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
A mathematical model has been developed to simulate the movement and fate of individual particles in a water column in an estuarine environment. The developed model not only keeps track...

Bed Sediments Size Changes, Atchafalaya River
During low flows of 1989 and 1991, we collected bed sediment samples from the thalwegs of the Mississippi River from Cairo, Illinois, to Head of Passes and along the Atchafalaya River...

Video Analysis of Gravel Saltation
Experimental results concerning saltation characteristics of gravel particles in a movable bed channel are analyzed by using video imaging techniques. Ensemble averaged values of saltation...

A New Three-Dimensional Modeling Technique for Studying Porous Media
A new three-dimensional technique for modeling the micro-structure of porous media is proposed. On the basis of measurements of characteristics made using thin sections of porous media...

A Novel Approach to Develop a Performance Based Test for Rutting of Asphalt Concrete
Asphalt concrete consists of compacted granular aggregates mixed with viscoelastic asphalt cement. The predictive phenomenological models had limited success in explaining the origin and...

The Specific Peculiarities of Relief Transformation and Shelly Sediment Differentiation in Coastal Zone
The settling velocities values of shelly sediment considerably differ from ones of the same particles of terrigeneous material and for this reason character and intensity of hydrodynamic...

Interactive Digital Image Feature Analysis as Applied to Cement and Concrete Microstructural Investigations
A novel procedure involves interactive chemical image analysis of separable features in the backscattered image. In this procedure a backscatter image is acquired by the image analysis...

Investigation of Saltating Particle Motions Using Flow Visualization Technique
A real-time flow visualization technique is applied in this study to investigate these phenomena. This technique is able to measure the particle trajectories and particle velocities without...

Mobilization and Removal of Contaminants Associated with Urban Dust and Dirt

Determining Velocity Gradient in a Flocculation Basin—A Case Study

The Potential Fate of Particulate Contaminants from the Rehabilitated Ranger Uranium Mine
In the initial period after rehabilitation of the Ranger Uranium Mine most particulate matter released into Magela Creek will be wash load. 10% of the annual deposits on the backwater...
