Experimental, Physical and Numerical Modeling of Lunar Regolith and Lunar Regolith Structures
An extensive series of laboratory strength and deformation experiments have been performed on a lunar regloith simulant. Results of these experiments are compared to results from experiments...

A Proposed Methodology for Ranking Space Resource Utilization Processes
A recent survey paper on lunar manufacturing identified 26 initial steps previously proposed as primary routes for lunar processing. Most of these have not been studied in sufficient detail...

Mechanical Properties of Compacted Lunar Simulant Using New Vacuum Triaxial Equipment
Mechanical stress-strain-strength properties of Arizona Lunar Simulant (ALS) are investigated by using a newly developed vacuum triaxial device that allows compaction under different initial...

Measuring Vibration in an Advanced Composite Beam with Localized Internal Fiber-Optic Strain Sensors
Two optical fibers embedded with different configurations were used separately as strain sensors to measure the natural frequencies and modal amplitudes of a cantilevered graphite/bismaleimide...

State-of-the-Art: Static Stability and Deformation Analysis

Shear Zone Formation and Slope Stability Analysis

Discontinuous Deformation Slope Stability Analyses

Response Variability and Reliability of Plates Using the Weighted Integral Method
A methodology is introduced to perform both the response variability and reliability analysis of two-dimensional stochastic systems (specifically plates subjected to plane stress or plane...

Serviceability Analysis of Wood Beams with Creep
The effect of creep deformations on the serviceability reliability of single, dimension lumber wood beams is examined. A viscoelastic stress-strain relationship is used to model the time-dependent...

Structural Reliability and Proof Testing for Highway Bridges
This paper proposes a set of reliability-based proof load factors for highway bridge evaluation, to determine target proof load and load rating. The target safety index used is consistent...

Environmental Impacts of Agricultural Drainage
Research has shown that improved drainage increases peak runoff rates and pollutant loads compared to natural conditions. However improved drainage on agricultural lands may reduce outflow...

Darcy-Weisbach Roughness Coefficients for Selected Residue Materials
A laboratory study is conducted to measure Darcy-Weisbach roughness coefficients for corn, cotton, peanut, pine needles, sorghum, soybeans, sunflower, and wheat residue. Varying rates...

Loading of Nutrients to Groundwater From High Source Areas During the Winter Period
Nutrient loading to surface, subsurface and groundwater in agricultural areas is the focus of control programs throughout the United States. In certain cases, high source areas can be...
