Geotechnical Aspects of Beach Restoration
Large-scale beach restoration undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Florida requires millions of cubic yards of beach quality sand. Exploration for these sand resources starts...

Settling Down
Engineers in Florida will prepare the sandy foundation of a future power plant by preloading it with sand for as long as a year....

Saving Saluda
One of the largest roller-compacted-concrete berms in the United States will stand sentinel in case South Carolina's Saluda Dam undergoes liquifaction in response to strong...

Calibration of Water-Velocity Meters
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as part of its responsibility to appraise the quantity of water resources in the United States, maintains facilities for the calibration of water-velocity...
