Modal Interaction in the Response of Laminates
A higher-order shear-deformation theory is used to analyze the interaction of two modes in the response of thick laminated rectangular plates to transverse harmonic loads. The case of...

Analysis of Prototype Long Period Waves for Los Angeles/Long Beach Harbor Resonance Studies
Long period wave data have been collected at an offshore wave gage and system harbor gages for over eight years in the Los Angeles/Long Beach Harbor region. These expansion of the harbors....

Tuned Mass Dampers for Towers and Buildings
Tuned mass dampers (TMD's) are used to reduce the response of tall slender structures to resonant wind-induced oscillations. This paper reviews the authors' experience with the design...

Computer Vision Techniques for Comparing Laser Doppler Velocimeter Scans of a Vibrating Plate to Analytical Plate Modes
Computer vision procedures were applied to velocity images of a vibrating square steel plate. A scanning laser Doppler velocimeter (LDV) measured the images of low frequency resonant operating...

Resonant Column Testing of Dynamic Rock Properties
Critical parameters for geophysical wave propagation studies are the dynamic elastic properties (shear and Young's moduli, and Poisson's ratio) and the intrinsic material damping of rocks....

Application of NMR to Rotating Granular Flow
Granular flow in a steadily rotating cylinder, having a large length-to-diameter ratio, is measured by nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This non-invasive technique is capable...

Microwave Measurements of the Water Content of Bentonite
The theory of operation of microwave coaxial resonators is described. Sample preparation and the application of resonator techniques to the measurement of the permittivity (dielectric...

Structural Aspects of Femoral Head Osteonecrosis
Orthopaedic management of early stage osteonecrosis (ON) of the femoral head is aimed at delaying or preventing collapse of structurally weakened regions of repairing dead bone. The advent...

Sensitivity of Gulf of Maine Tide Model to Depth
A 2-D tide model of the Gulf of Maine failed to produce accuracies necessary for the de-tiding of Geosat satellite data. A subsequent sensitivity analysis indicated that the model was...

Long Wave Information for Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbors Resonance Studies

Influence of Three Sonic Devices on Fish Behaviour
Three sound emitting devices have been developed to control fish movement in the vicinity of generating stations. These devices have the advantage of increased flexibility in terms of...

Small-Strain Shear Modulus of Clay

Generation of Native FE in Lunar Soil
Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) studies on lunar samples produced some unexpected results which led to recognition of the presence of abundant single-domain Feo...

Estuarine Protection Through Public Participation
Because public participation is such a time-honored component of the coastal resource management process, it is often easy to forget the pivotal role that citizen activism and public access...

Effect of Ambient Current on Resonant Reflection of Surface Water Waves by Sand Bars

Prototype Wave Power Stations in Norway
The KVAENER multi resonant oscillating wave column (MOWC) power station is both described and discussed. The power station, which is now on-line, is designed to produce 1 MW of peak electrical...

Seismic Interaction Among Numerous Masses Founded on a Viscoelastic Stratum
The steady-state harmonic response of systems comprising numerous masses resting on a homogeneous, viscoelastic stratum with hysteretic damping is studied. The stratum, bearing on a rigid...

Analysis of Resonance in Pressurized Piping Systems Via a Microcomputer
In this paper a digital simulation technique for the analysis of resonance is presented that is appropriate for microcomputer applications. The model utilizes the transfer matrix method...

On Cyclic Testing with Thin Long Hollow Cylinders
The hollow cylinder device has emerged in recent years as an important tool in the investigation of the dynamic behavior of soils. This paper reviews the stress conditions present in the...

Evaluating Nonlinear Soil Behavior Using the Resonant Column
An analysis is presented that attempts to match a mathematical model to the nonlinear behavior obtained from the resonant column test. This model consists of an oscillator with a restoring...
