Evolution and Dynamics of the Chilka Lake
The Chilka Lake, the largest coastal lagoon in Asia, has occupied a possible tectonic depression along the east coast of India. Although the open sea coast was along the western margin...

Environmental Change in Southern Part of Mekong River Delta and Problems of Territorial Rational Use
Mekong river delta (MRD) is a largest plain in South-East Asia. Its southern part as a peninsula is a recently forming plain with low surface and it has been made up by muddy silt. Last...

Soda Dam: Influence of Reservoir Silt Deposits on the Uplift Load

On the Elasto-Plastic Behavior of an Unsaturated Silt
Due to technical difficulties related to the control and measurement of the suction in unsaturated soils, few experimental data on the mechanical behavior of those soils exits. The paper...

Pelton Landslide: An Unusual Double-Wedge Failure

Modeling of Lateral Spreads in Silty Sands by Sliding Soil Blocks

Filters for Silts and Clays (Paper introduced by James R. Talbot)

Field and Numerical Investigations on Siltation Mechanism in Kumamoto Port
Synthetic investigations on siltation mechanism in Kumamoto Port were carried out by field observations, laboratory tests, and numerical simulations. Natural conditions such as tides,...

An Engineering Evaluation of Fine Sedimentation at the Mayport Naval Basin, Mayport, Florida
The Mayport Naval Basin is located near the mouth of the St Johns River in northeastern Florida, U.S.A. A total of 16.8 million cubic yards of fine sediment were dredged from the harbor...

Behavior of Three Organic Chemicals Passing Through Columns Packed with Sand and Silt in the Presence of Landfill Leachate
This study examines the effect of leachate on the migration of three common industrial chemicals in unsaturated flow under two sets of soil conditions: sand and sand with a layer of silt....

Comparation of Different Forms of Penman Equation
The research was carried out near Foggia (in Southern Italy) at 90 m above sea level and at 41° 27' N latitude, using two drainage lysimeters, filled with a silt clay soil...

Temporal Ion Balance Variation of an Irrigated Soil
The research was carried out in Southern Italy, from 1983 to 1988, using two gravity lysimeters irrigated with non saline water. The objective of this study was to test wether long-term...

Physical Model Studies on Hydraulic Characteristics of High Permeable Silt Protector Sheets

Bottom Plugging Dynamics in Recharge Basins
The Orange County Water District is investigating the reasons why percolation rates in deep recharge basins rapidly decrease. The interrelationship between microbiological activities in...

In-Situ Plate-Load Tests of Frozen Silt and Gravel

Preliminary Results of Frost Heave Tests in a Large Cell

Water Jets Fight Silt
In the largest U.S. application to date, an array of hydraulic jets is being used to scour a ship berth at the Port of Grays Harbor on the coast of Washington. The system has been in place...

Foundations on Expansive Soils in Northern Virginia
Thick layers of clayey silts (MH) were observed at several sites where townhouse developments were planned. These deposits had a high shrink swell potential. Maximum swell pressure tests...

Suspended Sediment Model of Offshore Tin Mining
The three dimensional dispersion equation is integrated vertically to use in describing the suspension of silt from offshore tin mining. The resulting two dimensional equation includes...

Prediction of Siltation at a Point
This paper describes a zero-dimensional mathematical model which predicts siltation at a point on a cohesive sediment bed. The processes of erosion, deposition and consolidation are modelled...
