Materials and Manufacturing Processes
This chapter introduces the basic materials used in the manufacturing of composite structures. It will help the line designer in understanding how the different elements of the fiber-matrix...

Countering Chemical and Biological Terrorism
Prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11, building protection related to terrorism primarily focused on the threat of bombs detonated inside vechicles. However the September 2001...

Stochastic Simulation of the Colorado River Flows Using SAMS
The main purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the applicability of SAMS to the Colorado River system. For this purpose we have utilized monthly data at 29 sites in the basin....

Stochastic and Deterministic Origins of Aquatic and Riparian Habitats
Development of aquatic and riparian habitats involves interactions among large numbers of climatic, geomorphic, hydrologic, and vegetative processes over time. A major component of these...

Predicting Droughts for the South Platte River System
In this paper we apply probability theory and stochastic processes to determine drought properties, particularly drought duration. Spccilicslly, we model the sequences of wet and dry years...

How to Use Modern Wet Mix Shotcrete Technology for Single Shell Permanent Tunnel Linings

Workability and Mix-Design Analysis on Dry-Mix Shotcrete

Redesigning the San Roque Dam
Engineers updated a 20-year-old design for the San Roque Dam in the Philippines to save time and money and improve the dam's ability to withstand earthquakes. The structure...

Under the Microscope
Forensic engineering is typically more complex than engineering design because it requires the integration of specialized knowledge of materials science, structural analysis and design,...

Planning Applications Constructed Wetlands for Wastewater Treatment or an Avian Habitat in the Desert?
The debate of wetlands constructed for wastewater treatment or biological habitat continues. How a desert site is planned to meet both challenges is presented....

Experimental Approach
One of the best kept secrets during World War II, the K-25 facility in the Cumberland Mountains of East Tennessee prepared uranium for use in nuclear weapons. By 1987, the 13 million sq...
