Erosion of Steep River Banks and Time Evolution Towards Equilibrium Channel Shape
A numerical analysis of the time evolution of straight river channels is presented. The bed and bank, material is taken to be coarse, non-cohesive and uniform in size. As a result of the...

Low-Cost Computer Techniques for Steel Truss Bridge Rehabilitation and Ratings

A Proposed Methodology for Ranking Space Resource Utilization Processes
A recent survey paper on lunar manufacturing identified 26 initial steps previously proposed as primary routes for lunar processing. Most of these have not been studied in sufficient detail...

Structural Reliability and Proof Testing for Highway Bridges
This paper proposes a set of reliability-based proof load factors for highway bridge evaluation, to determine target proof load and load rating. The target safety index used is consistent...

Environmental Impacts of Agricultural Drainage
Research has shown that improved drainage increases peak runoff rates and pollutant loads compared to natural conditions. However improved drainage on agricultural lands may reduce outflow...

Darcy-Weisbach Roughness Coefficients for Selected Residue Materials
A laboratory study is conducted to measure Darcy-Weisbach roughness coefficients for corn, cotton, peanut, pine needles, sorghum, soybeans, sunflower, and wheat residue. Varying rates...

Loading of Nutrients to Groundwater From High Source Areas During the Winter Period
Nutrient loading to surface, subsurface and groundwater in agricultural areas is the focus of control programs throughout the United States. In certain cases, high source areas can be...

WSPRO Files for Slope-Area Computations

Hydrologic Assessment for Riparian Restoration Projects

Sediment Rating Curves Based on Ranked Values

Loop Rating Curves from Goodwin Creek

Screening Old Offshore Platforms: Previous Approaches and Further Thoughts
Several possible levels of analysis are identified, each leading to both quantitative (economic) and subjective (human) risk evaluations. These range from ratings based only on historical...

The Effect of Loading Rate on the Bending Strength of Alluvium Reinforced Ice
Traditional building materials are often less than ideal for construction in remote Arctic locations. Their mechanical properties may be degraded in extreme cold, and costs associated...

Barometric Pumping of Contaminated Gases Through Fractured Permeable Media
Contaminated gases may be transported vertically through a fractured permeable medium by the breathing process which is associated with cyclical changes in the barometric pressure. A review...

An Alternative Method to Mariotte Reservoir System for Maintaining Constant Hydraulic Pressure
Several problems with the Mariotte reservoir system were discovered when it was used to apply a constant water pressure as a boundary condition for a prolonged period. The constant-pressure...

Urban Drainage Design Potpourri: Avoiding Pitfalls
In the process of mastering various methods or programs used to estimate storm runoff and flow rates, fundamental principles can be overlooked or even misunderstood. Discussed herein are...

Unification in Estimation of Confidence Intervals
One area of future development needs in technology pertaining to surface runoff hydrology is the unification of techniques used by govermental agencies in the estimation of surface runoff...

Characterizing Mode I Fatigue Delamination of Composite Materials
Evaluation of two techniques to characterize fatigue delamination using the double cantilever beam (DCB) specimen are presented. The two techniques were the delamination growth onset (G-N)...

Micro-Damage Process Model for Polycrystalline Ice
This paper presents a micro-damage process model for freshwater polycrystalline ice deforming at the high end of the ductile-to-brittle transitional domain of strain rated. Damage is attributed...

Strain Rate Effects on Pressuremeter Testing
This paper discusses the effect of strain rate on the cavity expansion problem and pressuremeter test. A cuboidal shear device, CSD, was used to perform pressuremeter strain path tests...
