The Liquid Droplet Radiator in Space: A Parametric Approach
This study is a parametric investigation of the performance and operating characteristics of a cylindrical Liquid Droplet Radiator (LDR) for use in space. The LDR system mass per heat...

Swedish Approach to Infiltration and Percolation Design
Design of infiltration and percolation facilities is similar to detention facilities. The storage volume of an infiltration basin being the ponding volume on top of the infiltration surface...

Sand Transport by Wind: Transport Rates of Uniform and Graded Sand

Longshore Sediment Transport Rate Distributions Measured by Trap

Technique for Assessing Estuarine Sediment Pollutants
A technique was developed for the Mississippi Sound whereby all pertinent scientific data could be gathered and be assimilated in a format that would permit sediment pollution to be assessed...

Research of Littoral Transport Rate and Wave Energy Analyses of the Bay Inside the Wai-San-Ding Barrier of the Taiwan Strait, R.O.C.

Philosophy and Implementation of Gate Stroking
The purpose of this paper is to examine one control method - gate stroking - the philosophy which would lead to its selection and an example of its implementation. Gate stroking provides...

Numerical Evaluation of Training Structures
A technique to evaluate estuarine training structure performance in reducing localized maintenance dredging requirements using the US Army Corps of Engineers TABS-2 numerical modeling...

Settling Tank Model for Deposition in a Tidal Lagoon
A model is developed to assess deposition of suspended sediment in Great Sound, New Jersey. The model employs the classic settling tank concept which utilizes plug flow hydrodynamics,...

An Overview of Factors Affecting Land Application of Food Processing Wastes
The food processing industry can use slow rate, rapid infiltration or overland flow systems. Slow rate systems are the most common method used for land application. The limiting design...

Winery Wastewater Land Application
Winery wastewater is characterized by low pH, relatively high BOD, and a low nutrient content. Land application using rapid infiltration basins has been practiced successfully at a number...

Steady State Fluid Transport Model for Plants
Knowledge of water potentials throughout the xylem and phloem elements as well as in individual cells is fundamental for understanding effects of water and temperature stress on transport...

Rating Curves for Adjustable Tricklers
This paper presents the approach and results of evaluating adjustable drip/trickle emitters to obtain rating curves. The emitter discharge depends on both system pressure and emitter opening...

Calibration of a Bridge Rating Formula for Overload Permits
This paper proposes a method to calibrate a reliability based load and resistance factor design (LRFD) permit evaluation formulation that will account for the overloaded truck's...

Microcomputer Assisted Bridge Rating
Before microcomputers can be useful to those officials responsible for rating the approximately 576,000 bridges in this country, software systems must be developed to analyze and rate...

Evaluation of Sediment Transport and Friction Factor Equations Using MOBED
Three sediment transport rate equations and the same number of friction factor equations for mobile boundary channel flows were evaluated using a mobile boundary flow model called MOBED....

Modeling Large Inelastic Cyclic Response of Concrete

Design of an Expert System for the Rating of Highway Bridges
A microcomputer-based expert system used to determine the effects of vehicles and overloaded vehicles on simple span bridges with reinforced concrete deck and prestressed concrete I-beams...

Capacity Rating of Existing Piers and Wharves
