Soft-diving Dam for Tidal Dredging

Settlement Behavior of an Avalanche Protection Gallery Founded on Loose Sandy Silt
An avalanche protection gallery located in the Swiss Alps was founded on alluvial ground close to the steep rocky mountainside. The rear retaining wall, at a variable distance of a few...

Settlement Predictions at a Florida Port Facility
A paved container storage area approximately four acres in size has been constructed at the existing Port of Fernandina in Fernandina Beach, Florida. Approximately one-half of the site...

Long Term Performance of Raft and Footing Foundations Above Clayey Silt
Two multistorey buildings have recently been constructed on a 30-m thick layer of clayey silt in downtown Fredericton, New Brunswick. The Bank of Montreal building is ten storeys high...

Rate of Settlement of Silt Alluvium at Trojan
Settlements of 1.83 m have been observed at the switchyard of the Trojan Nuclear Power Plant over a 22-year period since 1970. Rockfill had been placed on the site, a flood plain of the...

Sedimentation and Remediation Aspects of Recreation Lakes
Relatively higher rates of silting in Lake Shafer, Indiana during the past few years have been a matter of concern to its owners, operators, and users. Potential causes for observed increases...

Prediction of Accretion Below Muhuri Closure Dam in Bangladesh
An equation for prediction of siltation below a closure dam in the coastal area of Bangladesh has been developed using a diffusion equation of vertical transport of sediment. Applicability...

This proceedings, Ground Failures Under Seismic Conditions, contains invited and contributed papers which focus on the behavior of silty and...

Assessing Effects for Disposal Sites off San Francisco
A simple particle tracking model has been used to estimate the size of deposition footprints and transient turbidity effects in the water column resulting from disposal of dredged material...

Dynamic Compaction of Saturated Silt and Silty Sand - A Case History

Liquefaction Characteristics of Silts

Collapse Mechanism of Compacted Clayey and Silty Sands
The mechanism of wetting-induced collapse (hydrocompression) and the influence of fines ratios on compacted sandy soils are investigated. Various ratios of clay and silt are mixed with...

Environments Parameters of Sediments and the Interface Sediment-Water in the Tacarigua Lagoon (Venezuela)
A study was made of the sedimentological characteristics of a lagoon bottom, and of the anions present at the sediment-water interface. For this analysis, the lagoon was divided into five...

Disposal of Dredged Material from the Estuaries
The silting up of harbours and the lower parts of rivers are serious problems. These problems can be characterized in terms of quantity and quality. Two separated cases are described....
