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...

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...

Stress Strain Relation in Debris Flow Analysis

Thermal Strain Behaviour of Clays Cooled to Cryogenic Temperatures
The thermal expansion behaviour of two different types of clays (Boom clay from Belgium and a pure kaolinite-water paste) has been studied in a temperature range from +20° to -150°C (LNG...

The Effect of Loading Rate on the Bending Strength of Alluvium Reinforced Ice
Traditional building materials are often less than ideal for construction in remote Arctic locations. Their mechanical properties may be degraded in extreme cold, and costs associated...

On the Constitutive Behavior of Single Ice Crystals Due to Dislocation Mechanisms
A three-dimensional constitutive relation is derived for single ice crystals. The formulation is developed in terms of dislocation processes on the basal, prism, and pyramidal planes....

Anelastic Straining in Polycrystalline Ice
This paper presents experimental observations on the influence of stress, grain size and total strain level on the magnitude of anelastic strain in granular freshwater ice. Cyclic loading...

The Ductile-Brittle Transition in Ice & Size Effect
This paper considers the ductile to brittle transition in ice under compression. Two criteria, one phenomenological and the other more physical, are presented for the transition strain...

Strain Distribution in Fault Zones and Fluid Flow
Field and laboratory studies have shown that mechanical shearing in fault zones produces a repeatable fabric that changes with increasing shear strain. In the brittle field of mechanical...

Barometric Pumping of Contaminated Gases Through Fractured Permeable Media
Contaminated gases may be transported vertically through a fractured permeable medium by the breathing process which is associated with cyclical changes in the barometric pressure. A review...

An Alternative Method to Mariotte Reservoir System for Maintaining Constant Hydraulic Pressure
Several problems with the Mariotte reservoir system were discovered when it was used to apply a constant water pressure as a boundary condition for a prolonged period. The constant-pressure...

Source Term Model for Radioactive Waste Repository
A radioactive waste repository source term model is developed to predict radionuclide release rates from solidified waste packages disposed of in underground repository. Leach rates, i.e.,...

An Empirical Data Base for the Investigation of Earthquake-Related Changes in Crustal Hydrology
Both fracture permeability and fluid flow velocity can alter as a result of sudden strain changes associated with earthquake fault rupture. Testing the hydrological signatures of numerous...
