Inlet Division and Coastal Instability Following Tidal Prism Diversion

Flow-Induced Multiple-Mode Vibrations of Lightly Damped Rectangular Trashrack Prisms

Design of Guide Banks for Bridge Abutment Protection
As an alternate to designing bridge abutments to withstand the development of the full scour prism predicted by equations currently available for estimating abutment scour, FHWA recommends...

Testing of Hollow Clay Tile Masonry Prisms
This paper presents test results of 610-mm wide (24-in.) by 1219-mm high (48-in) by 203- or 330-mm (8- or 13-in.) thick prisms constructed of hollow clay tiles. Three prisms were extracted...

Compressive Strength of Masonry Prisms
Many factors affect the estimation of compressive capacity of a masonry prism. In the study the effects due to grout strength, mortar joints, block geometry and size, moisture content,...

Prisms and Antiprisms
Prisms form a group of mathematical figures, that have found widespread application in many disciplines, but especially in architecture and in building structures. They have two identical...

Development of an Isohyetal Analysis for Oregon Using the Prism Model
PRISM (Precipitation-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model) is an analytical model that uses point data and a digital elevation model (DEM) to generate gridded estimates of...

Indian River Inlet: Is There a Solution?
Man-made changes at Indian River inlet, Delaware, have occurred over the past 6 decades. During this period the tidal prism of the Indian River-Rehoboth Bays system has increased along...

On the Constitutive Behavior of Single Ice Crystals Due to Dislocation Mechanisms
A three-dimensional constitutive relation is derived for single ice crystals. The formulation is developed in terms of dislocation processes on the basal, prism, and pyramidal planes....

Computer-Aided Structural Analysis
Finite Element Methods and other numerical techniques are often taught nowadays in the undergraduate Structural Analysis courses. Commercial, structural computer programs are becoming...

Pressures on Prisms in Turbulent Shear Flows
Experimental results are presented which show that Melbourne's 'Small Scale Spectral Density Parameter,' S, controls the negative pressures on the...

Stress-Strain Behavior of Grouted Hollow Unit Masonry
Experimental results from axial stress-strain tests including post-peak response on hollow unit masonry prisms are compared to those of previous researchers....

Experimental Determination of Fluid-Coupling Coefficients in an Array of Hexagonal Prisms
The problem is related to the seismic analysis of fast breeder reactor cores, where the fluid trapped between the subassemblies is known to have a considerable influence on the core response....

Dynamic Response of Rigid Prism Assemblies

Turbulent Flow Past a Two Dimensional Prism

Pass Cavallo, Texas: Case Study of Tidal-Prism Capture
Pass Cavallo was until 1963 the only permanent inlet for the Matagorda Bay System, and has not been stabilized or protected in any way. In 1963, a deepdraft ship channel was constructed...

Steady Flow Past Prism in Rectangular Conduit
A general method for evaluating contraction and drag coefficcients for a two-dimensional flow through a sharp-edged orifice or past a prism symmetrically located in a rectangular conduit...

Stability Analysis of Floating and Submerged Ice Floes
The mathematical model is based on the moment equilibrium of an ice floe resting beneath a uniformly thick ice cover. It is argued that the expression derived for incipient motion of ice...

Tidal Prism of Equilibrium Inlets
Tidal prism is defined as the volume of water discharged through an inlet from ebb to flood tide. The magnitude of tidal prism depends on the cross-sectional area of the inlet. When an...

Torsional Flutter of Rectangular Prisms
Prismatic bar models tested are of rectangular cross section and are provided with different side ratios (depth/height) of 1, 2, 4, and 5. The position of axis of rotation of the model,...
