# Detection of Cracks in Reinforced Concrete Cans

*The Acoustic Emission Technique (AET) is known as a good possibility for non destructive detection of cracks in metal down to very small dimensions. To use AET for concrete, an efficient...*

Micromechanical Simulation of Wave Propagation in Dense Granular Assemblies

*Two-dimensional DEM with modified Mindlin's contact law has been used to study the load transfer mechanisms in 'consolidated' granular assemblies. Results of simulation are presented and...*

Wave Induced Vortex Near Seashore

*The vortex motion behind submerged breakwaters in the nearshore region is studied. The RCPWAVE model (Ebersole et al., 1986) is used to calculate the wave field and thus the radiator stresses...*

High-Resolution Interwell Seismic Experiments in Sedimentary Formations

*High-frequency interwell seismic data were acquired to examine full waveforms recorded in the pulsed mode and in the swept mode as well as to perform traveltime inversion tomography for...*

Resonant Column Testing of Dynamic Rock Properties

*Critical parameters for geophysical wave propagation studies are the dynamic elastic properties (shear and Young's moduli, and Poisson's ratio) and the intrinsic material damping of rocks....*

Stress Wave Interaction in Finite Beam on Elastic Foundation

*The short-time behavior of a finite Timeshenko beam on a Winkler foundation subjected to step and impulse loadings is presented. The transient behavior was analyzed by using the method...*

Wave Propagation in a Nonlocal Strain-Softening Continuum

*The problem of wave propagation in a nonlocal strain softening solid is first discussed analytically. It is demonstrated that 'loading' waves can still propagate in the strain softening...*

On the Role of Dispersive Waves in Strain-Softening Media

*Wave propagation in strain-softening continua is investigated numerically and analytically. It is argued that localisation which typically acts as a precursor of failure, can only be described...*

Wave Propagation in Solids

*The last fifty years have seen the development of a large number of application of the theory of wave propagation in solids to problems of interest to civil engineers. Most notable have...*

The Theory of Elasticity: 1950-1992 and Beyond: Concluding Remarks

*Forty years ago the theory of elasticity could be completely characterized by A.E.H.Love in his monumental treatise as an effort to reduce to calculation the internal state of stress produced...*

Frequency Response of Disordered Periodic Structures

*A computational procedure is given for calculating the frequency response of disordered periodic structures based on wave propagation theory. An ideal periodic structure is composed of...*

Roll-Waves on a Non-Newtonian Mud Layer

*This article extends the theory of roll-waves due to Dressler (1949) to a thin layer of mud modeled as a power law fluid. Roll-waves are periodic bores moving at a constant velocity down...*

A New NDT Device for Comprehensive Pavement Maintenance (Theoretical Aspects)

*A new nondestructive testing (NDT) device is being developed to detect some precursors to pavement distress. The principle of operation of the device is based upon the generation and detection...*

Integrity Testing of Concrete Elements Using Surface Waves

*The Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves (SASW) method is a nondestructive testing procedure which has been extensively used to determine in situ the elastic moduli of soils and pavements...*

Scattering of Waves by Steel Reinforcement in Concrete

*The application of wave-sensing methods to the non-destructive evaluation of concrete structures requires often the use of simple (or at least tractable) models for the solution of the...*

The Proposed NASA Lunar-Based Astronomical Observatories

*The goals of the Space Exploration Initiative are a manned return to the Moon, a permanent lunar outpost and then a manned expedition to Mars. This presents an opportunity to construct...*

SALSA: A Lunar Submillimeter-Wavelength Array

*A conceptual design is described for a lunar submillimeter-wavelength interferometer called SALSA, a Synthesis Array for Lunar Submillimeter Astronomy. The intent is to describe SALSA...*

Field Verification of a Wave-Induced Current Model

*A unique data set of nearshore waves and current measurements over a bar-trough bathymetry was collected during a field experiment at Duck, NC, in October 1990. These high-quality data...*

3D Hydrodynamic Model Validation Through Simulations of Dynamic Processes

*Two test cases with idealized geometry and forcing functions were performed to validate a three dimensional hydrodynamic model for use in coastal waters. The tests involve the barotropic...*

Tide and Hurricane Storm Surge Computations for the Western North Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico

*The development of a finite element (FE) model to study tides and hurricane storm surge in the Western North Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico is discussed. Issues that are emphasized include...*
