Considerations in 2-D Modeling of Hydraulically Steep Flow
Simplifications in the equations used to describe shallow water flow lead to some difficulties in modeling supercritical flow. The hydrostatic assumption produces two significant differences...

Wave Impacts on Sea Walls and Breakwaters

Evaluation of Roof Sheathing Fastening Schedules for High Wind Uplift Pressures

Wind Loads on Roofs of Low Rise Structures: Buffeting or Interaction

Standard Practice for Direct Design of Buried Precast Concrete Pipe Using Standard Installations (SIDD)
This publication, Standard Practice for Direct Design of Buried Precast Concrete Pipe Using Standard Installations (SIDD), (ASCE 15-93), is applicable to buried concrete precast pipe intended...

The Performance and Behaviour of Biological Filter Walls as Affected by Cyclical Temperature Changes

Racine's Water Street Retaining Wall

The Dredging Research Program Technical Area 3

Factors Affecting Degradation of Clay Masses

The Significance of Hydrodynamic Forces in Coastal Embankment Design
The dynamic forces of sea water and backfill soil acting on coastal embankment are analyzed by using a new finite-difference method. The Euler's equation and continuity equation are used...

Measurement and Analysis of Wave Data in Los Angeles—Long Beach Harbors

Modeling Municipal Water Demands for a Pump Station Area
The Chasewood Pump Station/Residential Area in southwest Houston was selected for a detailed analysis of ground and surface storage water pumping by a University of Houston and City of...

Prediction of Low Level Vibration Induced Settlement
A prediction model of vibration induced settlement was developed for small to intermediate vibration levels (0.25-1.78 cm/s). Seven factors affecting vibration induced settlement such...

A Case History of Settlement of an Embankment on Lagoonal Deposits Influenced by Artesian Conditions
A geotechnical engineering investigation was performed for the Pearl Kai Center, a shopping center in the Pearl Harbor area of the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The proposed commercial development...

Analysis of Foundation Settlement Due to Earthquake

Scoping the Monitoring Instrumentation to Meet Repository Design and Construction Needs
This paper discusses categories of instruments that are available and recommended for consideration to monitor the engineering performance and interactions of the geologic media, groundwater,...

Field Measurements of Wind-Induced Pressures on Roofs of Low Buildings
Full-scale measurements have been carried out on an experimental building, 3.3 m high, beside the football field at the Loyola campus of Concordia University. Wind-induced pressures have...

Rehabilitation of a Toe Drain
Old or improperly designed toe drains can cause trouble for embankment dams. Toe drains installed without proper filtering can provide an easy course for internal erosion and piping of...

Field Investigation of Mining-Induced Seismicity on Local Geohydrology
Hydraulic response of the rock mass due to earthquakes is one of the concerns in the assessment of the long-term performance of a repository. Studies performed by other researchers indicated...

Hydropulse Tomography for Identifying 3-D Permeability Distribution
For the purpose of identifying subsurface permeability distribution, a geotomographic method named Hydropulse Tomography (HT) was developed. As observation data, HT uses hydraulic pressure...
