The Daytona Beach Large Wave Event of 3 July 1992
The fundamental mechanisms behind the anomalous large wave which struck Daytona Beach on 3 July 1992 are addressed. Although the wave was originally believed to have resulted from a submarine...

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...

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...

Designing Optimal Reliable Multiquality Water Supply Systems
A methodology which integrates optimal design and reliability of a multiquality water supply system is presented and demonstrated. The system constructed is able to sustain prescribed...

A Computational Algorithm for Analysis of Rectangular Footings Under Partial Contact with Soil
This paper describes a method to determine the distribution of base pressures under a rectangular footing experiencing partial contact of the footing with soil. Assuming the footing to...

A Technique to Perform Coupled Consolidation Analysis Using Two Independent Softwares
The consolidation of soils involves two interdependent processes. These are fluid (air and water) flows and the deformation of the soil structure. The two processes tend to be treated...

Footing Load Tests on Sand
Four full size footings were load tested at a site in Texas. The embedded footings were situated on a thin layer of stiff clay underlain by a thick deposit of medium dense to dense sand....

Analysis of the Juturnaiba Embankment Dam Built on an Organic Soft Clay
The Juturnaiba Dam, located in the northern part of Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, has 1.2 km of its length built on an organic soft clay about four meters deep. The construction of the...

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...

Towards a Rational Method of Predicting Settlements of Spread Footings on Sand
Prediction of settlements of both large and small spread footings on sand has traditionally been carried out using methods which are largely empirical. In recent years, advances have been...

An Alternative Formulation of Volume-change Behavior of Soils
The traditional approach based on the semi-logarithmic representation of volume change data is known to work relatively well for prediction of ground settlements. This approach has been...

Deformation of Sand Foundations Induced by Earthquakes
This paper discusses the deformation of sand foundations during earthquakes based on the experimental results of centrifuge tests. A group of tests was conducted on two types of buildings...
