Tractive Flows Adjacent to Site for Submarine Sewage Pipeline
Twin 3200 m long submarine sewage pipelines for the city of Vancouver are being placed across the outer tidal flats and upper slope of the Fraser River delta to a water depth of 107 m....

Spatial and Temporal Variability of Drilling Reserve Pit Fluids on the North Slope (abstract)
Reserve pits are constructed in connection with drilling activities to provide a convenient and safe disposal site for waste drilling muds and cuttings. During the winter months at Prudhoe...

A Practical Approach to Regulating Energy Development in Alaska's North Slope Environment
In November 1983, the Alaska District, Corps of Engineers (Corps) established an abbreviated processing procedure (APP) to permit certail oil and gas related activities within the North...

Air Issues on the North Slope of Alaska—An Overview of the Problems and the Solutions (abstract)
Energy resources development on the Central Alaskan arctic coastal zone has introduced large scale fuel burning equipment to the area, resulting in the emission of air pollutants. The...

Erosion of the Slopes of Gold Tailings Dams
A study has been made of rates of erosion from the slopes of gold-residue dams in the South African Highveld region. Data is available for two years at this time and conclusions must therefore...

Use of Geomembranes in Deep Valley Landfills
The installation of geomembranes (synthetic liners) under deep valley landfills of utility and mine waste presents unique problems. Limited data are available concerning geomembranes beneath...

Numerical Simulation of Breaking Waves on Steep Slopes

Dissipative Transient Waves on a Sloped Bathymetry

Evaluation of and Recommendations for Drop Structures in the Denver Metropolitan Area
In 1982, the Denver Urban Drainage and Flood Control District published interim guidelines for the design of sloped, loose riprap drop structures, as well as vertical wall drop structures...

Riprap Stability on Channel Slide Slopes
The stability of riprap placed on a sloping bank is decreased because one component of gravity tends to displace the rock down the slope. Results of riprap stability tests on sloping banks...

Nonhomogeneous Terms in the Unsteady Flow Equations: Modeling Aspects
A study is in progress to identify the relative significance, effects, and benefits attributable to the use of one-dimensional, unsteady, open-channel, flow-simulation models employing...

Modeling Unsteady One Dimensional Open Channel Flow Using the Slope Friction Form of the Saint-Venant Equations
The flow of water in open channels has been an important research topic for many years. In 1871, B. De. Saint-Venant published a set of equations that attempted to quantify the physical...

Accuracy and Geographic Transferability of Crop Water Production Functions
This paper presents the results of that recent study, which investigated over 300 crop water production functions (CWPFs) and 370 publications on production functions. The accuracy and...

Kinematic, Diffusion and Dynamic Catchment Modeling
This paper reports on a series of tests aimed at developing improved procedures for catchment routing. The objective is to compare kinematic and diffusion models within several scenarios...

USBR Case History of Loess Cut Slopes in Nebraska

Riverbank Stability and Monitoring at Grand Coulee Dam
The capability for hydroelectric power generation at Grand Coulee Dam was substantially increased following construction of the third powerplant in the mid 1970s. Increased river fluctuations...

Ester West Slide—A Case History
An 80 foot high embankment was benched into graphitic schist permafrost on a north facing slope approximately 25 miles west of Fairbanks, Alaska. Soon after construction approximately...

Slope Investigation and Repair MP 698.1—Trans Alaska Pipeline

Landslide Dams in Japan
Damming of rivers by landslides is common in Japan because widespread unstable slopes and narrow valleys exist in conjunction with frequent hydrologic, volcanic, and seismic landslide...

Container Wharves Supported on All Vertical Piles Embedded in Rock-Fill Dikes
In recent years, several container wharves have been planned and/or constructed which feature the construction of the wharf over a sloping rock-fill dike. The wharves utilize all vertical...
