Pressure Pipeline Design for Water and Wastewater
This committee report, Pressure Pipeline Design for Water and Wastewater, is a revision of the 1975 ASCE publication Pipeline...

Preferred Orientation of Pore Structure in Cement-Grouted Sand

A Design Manual for Coastal Fluidization Systems
This paper summarizes a recently completed design manual on fluidization systems to manage sand in the coastal environment for sand bypassing at inlets and harbor mouths and for creating...

Tackling Trapped Sediments
Crater-sink fluidization has been used to recover sediment from harbors for the past couple of decades. Can this method bypass sediment around dams and return it to eroded beaches, solving...

Measurement of Shock Pressure from FWD on a Concrete Pavement by Impedance-Matched Shock Gauge

Variations of Hydrological Parameters of Tuff and Soil

ASME Pressure Vessel Code Application to Nuclear Waste Container Design

Frictional Aspect of Rocking-Sliding of a Rigid Block with Surface Impact
During the very short time of impact between a rigid rectangular block and a rigid foundation, the interface pressure distribution varies with time in a complicated manner. Due to this...

Computation of Wind Pressures on L-Shaped Buildings
The paper refers to the numerical simulation of turbulent wind conditions around an arbitrarily-shaped building composed of two rectangular blocks. The time-averaged Navier-Stokes equations...

The Transverse Vortex in the Wall Regions of the Turbulent Boundary Layers in the Flows with Adverse Pressure Gradient
The vortical structures in the turbulent boundary layers in the flow with adverse pressure gradient were investigated by the hydrogen bubble technique. The vortices were visualized in...

Estimating Damage and its Influence on Fracture Toughness
To estimate damage in a quantitative manner, a technique used whereby six values of linear strain are measured on a material element as a function of hydrostatic pressure. The high precision...

Effect of Water on the Consolidation of Crushed Rock Salt
The consolidation behavior of crushed rock salt, as the backfill in the under-ground disposal of nuclear waste, will be important in controlling room closure rates and local permeability....

Finite Element Large Deflection Analysis of Cylindrical Shells with Different Types of Cutouts
Nonlinear finite element is used to find the elastic buckling load and the maximum deflection for cylindrical shells subjected to unsymmetrical pressures due to wind. These shells are...

Inflation Instability of Cylindrical Membranes
A new procedure which investigates inflation instability of cylindrical nonlinear membranes is developed. The general characteristics of inflation instability are described. An efficient...

A Multiple Disk Centrifugal Pump as an Artifical Ventricle
A pulsatile, multiple disk, centrifugal pump has been analysed and tested for potential use as an artificial ventricle. The pump is similar to a Tesla Turbine design which consists of...

In-situ Release of Solar Wind Gases from Lunar Soil
A concept is described which has the potential to perform the in-situ heating of the lunar regolith in order to release the solar wind gases. The poor thermal conductivity of the lunar...

Strength and Fracture of Glass in the Lunar Environment
Due to the lack of water on the moon, the effects of hydrolytic depolymerization - stress corrosion cracking - will be nonexistent in glasses produced and used on the moon. This would...

Better Cover-Ups
Designing the final cover for a solid waste landfill or remediation site is often trickier than designing its lining because a cover will undergo more unpredictable stress and distress...
