Sediment Reduction Benefits of Bank Protection

Economic Potentiality of the Coastal Zone of South Tamilnadu, India and its Need for Protection

Hydraulic Model Studies on Effective Installation Method of Silt Protector Sheets for Large Depth of Working Site

Modern Technology in an Ancient Environment—The Answan II Power Plant
The Aswan II power plant is located at the old Low Aswan Dam in Southern Egypt. This dam was constructed in the early years of the century in order to provide irrigation water for cash...

Dynamic Strain in Silt and Effect on Ground Motions

Sediment Survey of Lake Powell
The 1986 Lake Powell Sediment Survey documented the present storage-elevation relationship and loss of storage from sediment accumulation since the reservoir began filling. From the calculated...

Silt Run Effectiveness in Withdrawing Sediment
An investigation was conducted during the silt runs on the North Platte River to determine the continued effectiveness of the runs in providing fine sediments to the canal systems downstream....

Effect of Gradation and Fines Content on the Undrained Response of Sand

Erosion and ErosionControl of a Silt-Muddy Beach
In China, many large and middle rivers such as Yellow River, Yangtze River, Pearl River, Liaohe River carry a large amount of fine sand into the sea, this results in extensive silt-muddy...

Segregation of Sediment During Deposition
A laboratory experiment was conducted to investigate the segregation of sediment during deposition. Sediment eroded from an upslope source area of Blount silt loam was introduced to a...

Water Table and Salinity Movement in a Silty Clay Soil
The movement of the water table and profile salinity in a shallow drained soil in permanent pasture overlying an artesian aquifer was observed. Soil samples were taken before and after...

Strengthening Alaskan Beaufort Sea Soils with Portland Cement
Preliminary studies undertaken to assess the feasibility of utilizing gravity structures on soft arctic silts indicate that the available foundation capacity are insufficient. Therefore...

Siltation of the Port of Astoria
Sedimentation rates suddenly increased in the Port of Astoria, Oregon, immediately following the May 18, 1980 ash eruption of Mt. St. Helens. This ash was transported down the Columbia...

Strength-Deformation Properties of Arctic Silt
Hydrocarbon exploration and production activities in the Beaufort Sea require construction of gravity structures capable of withstanding extremely large ice loads at sites where the subsea...

Undrained Cyclic Behaviour of Beaufort Sea Silt
Cyclic loading behaviour of Beaufort Sea silt has been studied under triaxial conditions, with and without static shear stress, to define the resistance to liquefaction or cyclic straining...

Wave Induced Liquefaction and Scouring in Yukon Prodelta Silts
The scouring potential of the Yukon prodelta has been investigated. The results obtained from geologic, hydrodynamic and geotechnical considerations indicate that probable liquefaction...

Cyclic Multiaxial Cubical Cell Experiments on a Norton Sound Silt
A servo-controlled multiaxial cubical test apparatus has recently been used to investigate the behavior of the foundation soil for a gravity structure in Norton Sound of the Alaska Outer...

Incorporating 3-D Effects into a 2-D Model
Some three-dimensional (3-D) effects may be incorporated into vertically averaged two-dimensional models. This is demonstrated with a case study where the effects of a complex system of...
