Undrained Shearing Behavior of Very Loose Gravelly Soils

Shear Wave Velocity in Gravelly Soils with Different Particle Gradings

Static and Dynamic Properties of Gravelly Soils
The behavior of gravelly soils has been the focus of much research in recent years. Large-scale penetration and triaxial tests, shear-wave velocity measurements, insitu freezing and sampling,...

On the Dynamics and Control of Flexible Orbiting Systems: An Approach with Application
A relatively general formulation for studying the dynamics and control of an arbitrary spacecraft, with interconnected flexible, deployable and articulating structural members, is reviewed...

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...

Snap Buckling of a Delaminated Layer in a Composite Cylinder
We investigate snap buckling of a thin delaminated layer on the inner surface of a contracting thick cylinder. Finite-deflection solutions of the layer with or without considering the...

Axisymmetric Vibrations of Thick-Walled Cylindrical Tubes in the Presence of Thermal Residual Stresses
The paper presents an approach to the analysis of axisymmetric vibrations of thick-walled specially orthotropic multilayered cylindrical tubes. The first part of the paper is concerned...

Space Station Microgravity Analysis and Assessment
The space station will be a platform for microgravity research. For superior microgravity science, the experiment locations must experience very little acceleration in the quasi-steady...

Microgravity Research in a Space Station Environment
A broad class of scientific experiments have evolved which utilize extreme low acceleration environments. A space station can provide such a `microgravity' environment, in conjunction...

Zero-Gravity Sports Centers
One of the uses that has been proposed for fully reusable launch vehicles is `space tourism', the making of short visits to low Earth orbit by fare-paying passengers. This seems to offer...

Reducing the Long-Term Effects of Zero-Gravity
Maintaining the physical health of scientists has been a longstanding problem in space flight research. Several ideas have been proposed to solve this problem. These include creating artificial...

Wheel Space Station for 2025
The advantages and disadvantages of three basic space station designs are discussed. These designs are a zero-gravity can like Skylab, a tethered system, and the wheel. A design of a wheel...

The Effect of Zero Gravity on Bones
Zero-gravity has created many problems for astronauts and researchers in space. Calcium depletion is cited as a major health problem. There are many different theories as to why zero-gravity...

Design of Mat Foundation for Egg Shape Digesters
Two levels of ground motion, the Maximum Probable Earthquake and the Maximum Credible Earthquake, were considered in designing the 2.5 million gallon egg shape digesters and their combined...
