Local Wind Pressures on Roofs
The paper reviews the results of the most recent research studies in the evaluation of wind pressure coefficients for the design of roof cladding elements. The effect of roof geometry...

Modeling Erosion and Deposition Due to Suction and Jet Flows
PHOENICS, a commercial 3-D computational fluid dynamics software package, was modified for simulating seabed erosion and deposition. Time varying sediment fluidization, transport and deposition...

A Case Study on the Modeling of Suction Scoops to Remedy Pump Intake Problems

Surgery in the Microgravity Environment
As man becomes more active in space, the possibility of major medical emergencies requiring surgical procedures will increase. Surgery in the microgravity environment involves many challenges...

Uplift of Shallow Underreams in Jointed Clay

The Rapid Deployment System: A Method for Conducting In Situ Soil Tests from Moving Ice in The Arctic Offshore
A new system was developed which permits rapid helicopter assisted transport of a light-weight in situ geotechnical testing system to remote offshore sites situated on unstable first-year...

Development of the Dredging Wheel
The 'bucket line' dredge and 'cutter suction' dredge are two distinct types of equipment. The cutter suction system has developed more...

Dredge Cutterhead Flow Processes
Feasibility studies of new dredge intake and cutterhead shielding techniques were conducted to improve hydraulic cutterhead dredge performance. Simple modification of the suction mouth...

Current Issues in Rock Dredging
An attractive alternative to the use of explosives for deepening shipping channels is the improvement of the rock cutter suction dredger. But, assessing the capability and design parameters...

Scale Effects of Modeling Flow Conditions in Pump Sumps

Engineering and Construction in Tropical and Residual Soils
Thirty-one papers and six invited lectures presented at the specialty conference on engineering and construction in tropical and residual soils are included. The proceedings represent...

Buckling of Cooling Towers
The main goal of this study is to provide a clearer basis for judging the succeding safety of wind-loaded cantilever hyperboloidal shells. New predictions for cooling tower buckling are...

Wind Pressures on Low Buildings with Parapets
The effect of parapets on the wind loading of low-rise buildings has been examined in the past, primarily under conditions of uniform flow not representing the variation of the mean speed...
