Safeguards and Security Issues at the MRS Facility
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) is responsible for disposing of the nation's high level radioactive waste in a way that ensures...

Fear of Permanence: The Challenge of Siting Interim Facilities
This paper examines an increasingly urgent and surprisingly difficult task: siting potentially hazardous facilities that are intended to operate for a limited period, such as a Monitored...

Data Acquisition System for Determining the Resilient Modulus of Soils

Mangling the Models: Real-Life Experiences in Voluntary Siting
Social scientists are accumulating a growing body of research to guide the development of communications models for siting controversial facilities. The models developed by our social...

The SHRP-LTPP Asphalt Resilient Modulus Pilot Study
A SHRP asphalt concrete resilient modulus pilot study was initiated to provide important supplemental information related to the AC Mr program. Initially,...

On the Evaluation of Static Soil Properties

Seismic Response Variability of Soil Sites
The seismic response variability of soil sites due to randomness associated with both the input base motion and spatial inhomogeneity of the shear modulus is investigated. Some numerical...

Soil Behavior from Unconventional Loading Conditions
Random and sinusoidal loading conditions were used in this study to determine the soil moduli and the damping ratios of cohesive soil samples. Test results showed some differences between...

Soil Loads at Pipeline Crossings

Rethinking the Economic factors of Centralized Spent Fuel Storage
The economics of centralizing the storage of spent fuel at a single site, as opposed to continued storage at over 100 reactor sites, has been the subject of several recent analyses. Most...
