Bulkhead Instability in Soft Soil
This paper presents a case study involving the severe disturbance of the subsurface soils in front of an existing bulkhead caused by the berthing of a jack-up type, offshore drilling vessel....

The Use of Spread Sheets in Water Resources Planning
With the advent of 'spread sheets' in the microcomputer explosion, a tool is available for the first time to greatly simplify many engineering procedures. This...

Spread Sheets for Irrigation and Drainage Projects
Land use planners as well as planners from other disciplines use overlays for site analysis but these are usually a qualitative display. Recently the advent of spread sheets coupled with...

Application of the New SCS Time of Concentration Method
The second edition of the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) TR-55, published in June 1986, introduces a new method for calculating the time of concentration for storm runoff flowing through...
