Ventilation Considerations for Repository Subsurface Advanced Conceptual Design

Experimental Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Over Drift-Emplaced Canisters

New Way Out
An obsolete and hazardous ventilation/emergency-exit shaft on the banks of the Hudson River has been replaced with a deep, dual-shaft system that connects to a 100-year-old train tunnel...

Mine Support, Radiation and Ventilation Control with Spray-on Barriers
The use of spray-on liner agents to provide localized excavation support in place of traditional techniques such as shotcrete or bolts-and-screen has been the subject of extensive investigation....

Hong Kong's Wastewater Underground
Standard Hong Kong methods for siting the new $18 million Stanley Wastewater Treatment Plant in Hong Kong Island's South District were running into trouble. The rocky coastal...

Testing and Cobra-SFS Analysis of the VSC-17 Ventilated Concrete, Spent Fuel Storage Cask

Coupled Heat and Moisture Transport Model for Underground Climate Prediction

Design and Licensing of the VSC Dry Fuel Storage System

Shielding Design of the Ventilated Storage Cask

The Reconstruction of the Morton Street Evacuation and Ventilation Shaft

Energy Losses Due to Air Admission in Hydroturbines
Admission of air at the exit of a hydroturbine runner is an attractive technique for raising dissolved oxygen levels downstream of a hydro plant. The air admission, however, is generally...

Ventilation Design for the Exploratory Shaft Facility Yucca Mountain Projct

Ventilation and Construction Considerations for a High Level Nuclear Waste Repository
The storage of high level nuclear waste in an underground repository presents engineering problems in ventilation, construction methods and plan, and in proposed retrievability. Temperatures...

Aeration of a Submerged Jet-Flow Gate
Submerged operation of a jet-flow gate requires special treatment of the area downstream from the gate to avoid cavitation damage. The Bureau of Reclamation studied operation of a submerged...

Buoyant Plumes from Hydrothermal Vents

Geocomposites Simplify Methane Barrier/Venting System Design
A case history describing the use of a geomembrane and geocomposite to simplify the design of a combined subsurface barrier and venting system is presented. The passive barrier and venting...

Radon Resistant New Construction Practices
This paper highlights the basic principles for building radon-resistant houses and it groups the construction techniques into four categories, i.e., the barrier approach, soil ventilation...

A Station With a View
The Port Authority TransHudson Corp. (PATH) is renovating and expanding Exchange Place station, the first stop in New Jersey across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan. To be completed...

Asbestos Removal With Occupancy and Operating HVAC

Overcoming Opposition
