Probabilistic Slope Stability—Case Study
The stability of a slope depends upon highly variable conditions of varying degrees of importance. Probability theory is used herein to assess the relative importance of the soil parameters...

Probabilistic Model for Stability of Slopes
Presented herein is a probabilistic model based on derived distributions to predict shear strength of soils and the safety factor of slopes considering uncertain properties of soil, namely:...

A Probabilistic 3-D Short-Term Slope Stability Model
A probabilistic model to analyze the three-dimensional stability of earth slopes under short-term conditions is presented. An actual failure case is studied to show the implementation...

Rock Armouring to Unconventional Breakwaters: The Design Implications for Rock Durability
This paper identifies the need for quantitative durability testing of rock for use on dynamically stable rock armored slopes. The derivation and use of a suite of engineering tests for...

Arctic Coastal Processes and Slope Protection Design
Cold regions present special challenges for civil engineers. The papers in this book address arctic coastal processes and slope protection design. The first part of the book focuses on...

Interfacial Instabilities Associated with Density Currents
Three-dimensional behavior of density currents flowing down a sloping surface has been analytically and experimentally investigated. Attention has been given to the presence of interfacial...

Runoff Probability Distribution Characteristics
The probabilistic relations of an elemental rainfall - runoff process are analyzed. The elemental process is defined as runoff from a uniformly sloping impervious plane due to uniform...

Channel Response to SCS Type-C Grade-Control Structures on Burney Branch, Mississippi
Five SCS Type-C grade-control structures were installed in Burney Branch in 1980 to remove 59.4 feet (18.1 m) of grade. The performance of the structures was evaluated in 1984 after they...

Candor Chasma Camp
This paper proposes a camp at Mars, in the Coprates region of the Valles Marineris rift, just below the equator on Candor Mensa 6°-12'S, 73°-30'W. Beginning at...

Slopes and Densities of Hydraulically Placed Sands

Pore Water Pressure Conditions in Tailing Dams

Cyclone Deposited Tailings Dam for 300 Million Tons

Morphologic and Hydraulic Adjustments of Red River from Shreveport, LA to Fulton, AK, between 1886 and 1980
Morphometric data (channel width and depth and slope) from 4 hydrographic surveys of Red River (1886, 1938, 1968, 1980) from Shreveport to Fulton and specific-gage analyses for the gages...

Hydraulic Effects on Swimming Fish in Fish Passage Structures
The implications of profile drag, weight, and buoyant forces on energy and power requirements of fish swimming through fish passage structures are considered. Where hydraulic grade lines...

Snow-Melt Triggered Debris Flows Affecting Utah's Megalopolis
During the abnormally wet years of 1983 and 1984, debris flows were triggered late in spring on the west flank of the Wasatch Mountains and elsewhere in Central Utah. These debris flows...

Section Four—Embankment Settlement and Stability Analyses

Soil Nailed Retaining Structures: Analysis of Case Histories

Contribution of Side Slope Adjustment to Entrance Channel Shoaling

Water Use Management in the North Slope Arctic Coastal Plain (abstract)
On the North Slope, water is dependent on accessibility as well as availability. Lakes which to do not freeze to the bottom, may support fish populations. To protect this resource, lakes...

Coastal Groundwater Outflow: Solution to a Dynamic Problem
The pattern of fresh groundwater outflow at the coastal margin of a phreatic aquifer can be approximated by a quasi-transient analytical model. The suggested procedure includes transformation...
