Volume Changes in Models of Jointed Rock
A number of authors have pointed to the significance of volume increase or dilation in failing rock masses. Although several experimental studies of the compressive and shear strength...

In Situ Measurement of Volume Change Characteristics

Nonequilibriun River Form
In the absence of man-induced changes and climatic changes and in the engineering time scale, the form of many rivers is primarily a result of the flood history of the river. Evidence...

Climatic Changes and the World Food Supply

Measuring Transportation System Performance
Quantitative measures of several aspects of urban transportation system performance which are difficult to incorporate in a cost-benefit analysis are presented. Two major types of evaluations...

Plane Strain Approximations in Finite Element Analyses of Temporary Walls
(Volume 1)...

Electrical Resistivity Method for Determining Volume Changes that Occur During a Pressuremeter Test

Traffic Volume Counting Recorders
Traffic volume counting recorders have evolved from the simple cumvlative hourly printed recorder to complex telemetry systems. A review of the state-of-the-art of traffic volume counting...

Finite Element Methods for the Nonlinear and Time-Dependent Analysis of Geotechnical Problems
(Volume 1)...

Incorporating Highway Safety into Level of Service
The Highway Capacity Manual is used extensively for highway design and highway evaluation purposes; it relies upon the relationship between travel speed and the volume/capacity ratio for...

Radial Dispersion in Ground-Water Flow
Singular perturbation techniques are used to obtain approximate concentration distributions that result when a recharge well discharges a finite volume of radioactive pollutant into an...

Proximal Decisions in Traffic Intersections
Decision making that is based on deterministic principles neglects the random nature of various phenomena occurring at traffic intersections, and this could result in intersection design...

Freeway Traffic Control and Surveillance Model
The development of on ramp metering control strategies for a freeway can be aided by the well-developed theory of linear optimal control. The recently developed aggregate variable model...

Economic Criterion for Highway Capacity Determination
A method is presented for the determination of highway capacity that relies on an explicit statement of the benefits to users that accrue from highway capacity changes. The method relies...

Airport Access Cost-Effectiveness Analysis
A cost-effectiveness analysis of alternative airport access systems is described. The purpose of this study is to help define a national policy for airport development. Based on an extensive...

Forecasting Travel on Regional Highway Network
This study attempts to develop an appropriate predictive technique for estimating traffic on a regional highway network without resorting to a regionwide origin-destination survey. Models...

Annual Surveillance of Urban Traffic Growth
This paper describes a methodology for the preparation of operations plans for the annual surveillance of traffic growth during the continuing phase of the urban transportation planning...

Area and Volume Errors in Reservoir Projects
In reservoir planning-design, the engineer is facing the task of determining area of tracks of land, of surfaces covered by the reservoir water, and of the volumes of water contained in...

Traffic Volume Characteristics on Urban Freeways
Various traffic characteristics for urban freeways are derived from data recorded at 15 urban locations in 1965 and 19 urban locations in 1963. This study was directed toward developing...
