Validation of a Continental-Scale Storm Surge Model for the Coast of Delaware
Coastal structures are designed to provide protection against various forces of nature acting in the coastal zone. Structures such as seawalls are expected to provide onshore protection...

Wave Run-Up and Reflection on a Permeable Sea Wall
The swash oscillation on a sloping seawall made of step-shaped concrete blocks, waves and water particle velocity in front of the seawall were measured. It was inferred that incident waves...

Wave Setup Near a Seawall: Experiments and a Numerical Model

Locking Into Success
In 1961, at Wheeler Lock in Alabama, crews with the Tennessee Valley Authority tried to incorporate an existing lock wall into a new cofferdam. A major portion of the land wall slid about...

Slurry Trenching for Waterway Pipeline Installation

Integrated Product Models
A review is made of current STEP standards efforts to develop integrated product models, using the Express language. An example of a building wall is presented, along with some general...

Macroelement Model for Shear Wall Analysis
An efficient modeling scheme for static and dynamic analysis of reinforced concrete shear walls in the inelastic range is presented. The macroelement model of the shear wall is composed...

The Sensitized Photocatalysis of a Mixed Reactant System of 4-Chlorophenol and 4-Nitrophenol
Sensitized photocatalysis has been demonstrated with colored pollutants such as nitrophenols. With visible light excitation of an adsorbed nitrophenolic compound, charge injection into...

Photocatalytic Transformations and Degradation of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) in TiO2 Slurries
The photodegradation of TNT in a TiO2 slurry reactor was studied as both a potential treatment technique for the remediation of water with munitions...

High-speed Video Analysis of Sediment-Turbulence Interaction
Results from the analysis of high-speed video recordings of particle motion and simultaneous flow visualizations in the near wall region of a turbulent open channel flow are presented....

Measurements of the Hydrodynamic Lift and Drag Forces Acting on Riprap Side Slope
Direct measurements have been made of lift and drag forces acting on a 20.1 mm spherical particle placed within the riprapped 1.5 H: 1 V side slope of a 10 m long channel which was protected...

Simultaneous Flow Visualization and Hot-Film Measurements
High-speed video recording of flow visualizations in the near wall region of a turbulent open channel flow was synchronized with hot-film measurements of flow velocity and bed shear stress...

Stability Analysis of Rayleigh-Benard Convection in the Presence of Side Walls
The onset of laminar axisymmetric Rayleigh-Benard convection is investigated for a low-Prandtl number liquid metal in a cylindrical container, in the presence of a vertical temperature...

Boundary Shear in the Vicinity of River Banks
Some experimental data are presented concerning the distribution of boundary shear stresses in trapezoidal open channels for both inbank and overbank flows. The local shear stresses on...
