A Literature-Based Preliminary Characterization of Risks in the Nuclear Waste Management System
The objectives of this study were to 1) review the literature containing information on risks in the nuclear waste management system and 2) use this information to develop preliminary...

Preliminary Conceptual Design Description of the Proposed DOE Store-Only Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Facility
The Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA) of 1982 required DOE to examine the options for the provision of long term spent fuel storage in monitored retrievable storage (MRS) facilities. Specifically,...

Synthesis of a Space Infrastructure
The Rockwell International 'Integrated Space Plan' consolidates a broad range of near-term and long-range objectives for the development of space. Beginning with...

Shear Properties of Pultruded Glass FRP Materials
The in-plane shear modulus and the in-plane shear strength of a variety of pultruded glass fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) materials were measured experimentally in a pilot test program...

Durability of High-Strength Concrete Containing Fly-Ash and Silica Fume
The durability of high-strength concrete made with local materials were tested with regard to the freezing and thawing resistance of concrete in accordance with ASTM C666 procedure A....

Flexural and Shear Moduli of FRP Beams
The analysis and design of structures of pultruded fiber reinforced plastic (FRP), constant cross-section, commercially produced, beams is discussed in the context of a shear deformation...

Some Dilatometer Test Results in Pennsylvania and New York
This paper starts with a brief introduction to the dilatometer and piezoblade. Test results in four different areas are presented. DMT soundings at LR 67057 (Legislative Route numbers...

Settlement Characteristics from Insitu Tests in Flyash Structural Fills
Flyash from the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company's plants was used to construct structural fills in thickness ranging from 5 to 25 feet (1.5m to 7.6m). Several warehouses...

Fact or Friction: A Review of Soil Response to a Laterally Moving Pile
A review of soil response around a laterally moving pile is presented and 'Winkler' spring soil modulus variations are discussed. Based on available theory, and...

Bearing Capacity of Shallow Foundation on Granular Column in Weak Clay
Laboratory model tests results for the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow rectangular foundations supported by granular columns made in weak clay have been presented. In all cases, the...

Long Term Performance of High Rise Mat Foundation
The vertical movement of the foundation soils for a multi-story high rise office tower was monitored during foundation excavation, tower construction and the 25-year in-service period...
