Stress Relaxation Characteristics of the HDPE Pipe-Soil System
All piping materials and soils are subject to viscoelastic behavior such as stress relaxation and creep. The combination of soil and pipe viscoelastic properties determine the time-dependent...

MRS Systems Study, Task F: Transportation Impacts of a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility
The passage of the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987 (NWPAA) modified the basis from which the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) had derived and developed...

Current Social Systems Issues in the U.S. High Level Waste Management Program
Major changes in the U.S. high level waste management program since passage of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 (NWPA) have weakened the social consensus about waste policy that existed...

Defining the Need for and Functions of the Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Facility
A series of system studies of the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management System were conducted by the Department of Energy (DOE) to determine the role for a Monitored Retrievable Waste...

Opportunities for the Nuclear Waste Negotiator
The Nuclear Waste Negotiator (the Negotiator) has the potential to have a significant positive impact on the United States High-level Radioactive Waste Management program perhaps more...

Institutional Status, Challenges, and Plans Related to the MRS Program
This paper analyzes the role of institutional considerations in the Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) program. Among the issues that will be discussed are: the present focus of the MRS...

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,...

Durability of Fly Ash Concrete in the Marine Environment
This paper presents the experimental investigation of durability of air-entrained fly ash concrete in the marine environment. The findings indicate that the deterioration rate of durability...

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....

Significance of Yield Surface Corner-Like Effects in Inelastic Stability Solutions
This paper presents the author's experiences with finite element prediction of the inelastic stability of steel plate structures. The implications of linear versus nonlinear...

Stochastic Finite Element Analysis for Spatial Variations of Soil Properties Using Kriging Technique
When a reliability analysis for geotechnical problems is performed based on the stochastic finite element method, a proper estimation of spatial variation of soil properties is important...

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...

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...

Rectangular Footing on Nonhomogeneous Elastic Half Space
The problem of a rectangular footing or a strip footing on a nonhomogeneous elastic half space is studied in this paper. The medium is assumed to be isotropic with a variable shear modulus...

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...
