Sinkhole Investigation and Grouting: Novel Recommendations for a Pipeline Right-of-Way
In 2009, numerous sinkholes developed within and adjacent to a 400-ft-long section of high-pressure, petroleum pipeline right-of-way that crosses under a local creek in Plymouth Meeting,...

A Probabilistic Approach to Karstic Foundation Variability
Karst is a landscape formed in soluble rocks caused by movement of water that has become slightly acidic. Limestone, dolomite, and gypsum are vulnerable to these influences and may be...

Journal of Pipeline Systems Engineering and Practice

Prefabricated Vertical Drains — The Squeeze is On

Transport Model Uncertainty and Sensitivity Analysis for Groundwater Releases of Radionuclides from Subsurface Nuclear Tests
Uncertainty analysis of groundwater flow and transport models is a topic of considerable interest in the groundwater modeling communities. The Underground Test Area (UGTA) Project of the...

Groundwater Transport Modeling Using Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic
Modeling of groundwater flow and transport is inherently uncertain. The predictive capability of the model depends upon both the quantity and quality of hydrogeologic data. The introduction...

Considerations Regarding Geochemical Transformations Downstream of Subsurface Wastewater Effluent Disposal Facilities
Many suburban and rural communities use subsurface disposal in conjunction with on-site and other small decentralized systems. In addition, to reduce the impacts of wastewater treatment...

Watershed Modeling for Surface-Groundwater Interaction
Groundwater use has increased rapidly due to irrigation development in the Great Plains. This is especially true in the Republican Basin that intersects the three states of Nebraska, Kansas...

Hydrologic Comparison of Four Types of Permeable Pavement and Standard Asphalt in Eastern North Carolina
A permeable pavement parking lot in eastern North Carolina consisting of four types of permeable pavement and standard asphalt was monitored from June 2006 to July 2007 for hydrologic...

Hurricane Protection System
This chapter discusses hurricane protection systems. Topics include standard project hurricane, levees and floodwalls, datums and elevations, and interior drainage and pump stations....

The Need for Geotechnical Investigation
Knowledge of the subsurface conditions is needed to decide which type of foundation to use. In the discontinuous permafrost zone, some generalizations may be made about the location of...

Pile-Head Behavior of Rigidly Capped Pile Group

Effects of Agricultural Drainage on the Baseflow in the Minnesota River Basin

Beans Help Build Deep Drainage Trenches

Fate of Nitrogen Compounds in Animal Waste Lagoons
This chapter examines the fate of nitrogen compounds in animal waste lagoons. Topics include nitrogen in animal waste lagoons; transformations and removal; and subsurface transport....

Application of TOPNET in the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project (DMIP)
This paper describes the application of a networked version of TOPMODEL, TOPNET, as part of the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project, DMIP. The model implementation is based on a...

Water Quality Aspects of Irrigation and Drainage: Past History and Future Challenges for Civil Engineers
This paper presents a brief history of irrigation and drainage related to ASCE activities on its Jubilee. This paper discussed legislation and policies that affect irrigation and drainage...

Advancing Under London
Bored tunnels account for more than 20 percent of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, the high-speed rail line that will connect the Channel Tunnel with London upon its completion in 2007. In...

Fluid Flows and Reactive Chemical Transport in Variably Saturated Subsurface Media

Storm-Water Strategy
Water pollution laws are certainly nothing new, but increased public scrutiny, beach closures, and media coverage—particularly in Orange County, California—have placed new pressures on...
