# Building a Marina in Mexico

*The objective of this paper is to present a summary of the development of marinas in Mexico, especially in the last five years, since the relaxation of government regulations in this sphere,...*

Licensee Tort Liability and Regulatory Overreaching

*Certain of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) regulations and licensing requirements effectively preempt the states' authority to determine liability....*

Drag Characteristics of Spheres in Bingham Fluids

*R.W. Ansley and T.N. Smith's type of drag relation can be traced back closely, if not completely, to the Newtonian drag curve. The equivalent diameter for a sphere in a Bingham...*

Experiments on the Gravity-Free Dispersion of Large Solid Spheres in a Newtonian Fluid under Shear (1954)

Comparing Coastal Spheres in Oregon and Washington

*This paper introduces the concept of a 'coastal sphere' and illustrates its use by applying it to two such spheres located in the Pacific Northwest. A sphere...*

Low Velocity Impact Resistance of Tough Composites

Size Gradation and Stresses in Rapid Granular Flows

Effect of Pressure Gradient on the Motion of a Sphere in an Oscillating Fluid

A Survey of Methods to Measure Vorticity in Turbulent Flows

Stresses on Rapidly Sheared Fluid-Solid Mixtures

*Constitutive equations were derived describing the stress in a rapidly sheared mixture of granular cohesionless solids and a Newtonian fluid. These equations are considered to describe...*

Compliance of Assemblage of Unlike Elastic Spheres

*An investigation is made of the load-response behavior of a simple granular cell consisting of the following: two like elastic spheres separated at zero load by a ring of restrained smaller...*

Settling Velocity of Spherical Particles in Calm Water

*The settling velocities of round and smooth spherical particles in calm water at 200 /LT R /LT 6,000 were analysed utilizing modern measuring techniques. When the present results are compared...*

Expanded Polystyrene Spheres as Evaporation Suppressors

*Tests were made both under indoor and outdoor conditions, land and floating pans covered with beads to produce various water surface coverage. Daily measurements of evaporation and water...*

Added Mass of Sphere near Floor in Oscillatory Waves

*The purpose of this note is to examine how the added mass of a fixed submerged sphere changes in the presence of a free surface (in addition to the wall boundary at the bottom) in two-dimensional...*

Nonlinear Inertia Forces on Bodies

*The theoretical influence of convective acceleration terms on the inertia force on a body is considered. The assumptions involved in using the inertia force are reviewed and an expression...*

Effect of Free-Stream Turbulence on Drag of Bluff Bodies

Further Tests on Ocean Wave Forces on Sphere

*Wave force coefficients have been obtained for a 28.8-in diam sphere. The work was done at a test site in 37 ft of water offshore from Honolulu. The peak flow velocities encountered during...*

Scour of Bed Material in Very Rough Channels

*Experiments with densely packed uniform spheres have confirmed that the initiation of motion of bed material is affected by the relative roughness of the channel. At shallow depths, larger...*

Experiments on Surface Buoyant Jet

*An experimental investigation of a surface buoyant jet is presented. The densimetric Froude number and the Reynolds number of the discharge channel were 3.6 and 33,000, respectively. Longitudinal...*

Fluid Dynamic Lift on a Bed Particle

*Direct measurement of lift forces acting on an exposed sphere at the boundary of a fluid flow shows that the lift force may be negative (i.e., directed toward the boundary) if the grain-size...*
