Roughness Wavelengths Induced by Frost Heave

Effects of Dust and Thermal Cycling on Telescope Mirror Performance
In this study, 1 cm × 1 cm square optical-grade aluminized glass mirrors were measured for maximum light reflectance and then the loss of reflectance due to the presence of different specific...

Roll Waves in Mud Flow
Permanent roll waves on a shallow layer of fluid mud which is modeled as a power-law fluid is studied. Based on long-wave approximation, momentum integral method is applied to derive the...

Scattering of Waves by Steel Reinforcement in Concrete
The application of wave-sensing methods to the non-destructive evaluation of concrete structures requires often the use of simple (or at least tractable) models for the solution of the...

ESCAPE: Small Payload Strategies
The Extreme ultraviolet Solar Contained Autonomous Payload Experiment (ESCAPE) is a small payload scheduled to fly on the Space Shuttle in April 1992. This payload has been developed at...

Some Considerations for Instrumentation for a Lunar-Based Solar Observatory
Outstanding problems in solar physics, observational trends and directions of instrumental development in solar astronomy are discussed briefly. These lead to the specification of observational...

SALSA: A Lunar Submillimeter-Wavelength Array
A conceptual design is described for a lunar submillimeter-wavelength interferometer called SALSA, a Synthesis Array for Lunar Submillimeter Astronomy. The intent is to describe SALSA...

A Piston-Type Nonlinear Wavemaker Theory
In this paper, the small-amplitude surface waves produced by a piston-type nonlinear porous wavemaker in an infinitely and a semi-infinitely long channel are studied. Analytical solution...

Detection of 2-D Nearshore Wave Patterns Using Linear Prediction and SAR Data
Extraction of wave parameters such as wavelength and direction on radar images is normaly done using fast Fourier transforms (FFT) on typical image size of 256 × 256 which may not be appropriate...

Properties of Small-Scale Waves in Sheared Gas-Liquid Flows
Small wind-generated waves are examined theoretically and experimentally in a small laboratory flow system, at conditions close to neutral stability in an attempt to better characterize...

Accuracy and Resolution of Surface Wave Inversion
Shear wave velocity profiles of soils and pavements may be evaluated nondestructively using surface wave tests such as the Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves (SASW) method. In these tests,...

Lunar Automatic Photoelectric Telescopes (LAPTs)
I propose a lunar network of modest (approximately 1 m), robust telescopes designed for and dedicated to precise, time-serial monitoring of variable sources. Unhampered by atmospheric...

Stripmine Streambed Restoration Using Meander Parameters

Floating Tire Breakwater Design Comparison
The design curves from two independent studies of the wave transmission and mooring force characteristics of Goodyear-type floating tire breakwaters are compared. The CERC wave transmission...

Turbid Water Measurements of Remote Sensing Penetration Depth at Visible and Near-Infrared Wavelengths

Long Waves in the Ocean and Coastal Waters (Abstract)

Runway Roughness Characterization by DDS Approach
A new approach called Dynamic Data System (DDS) analysis is proposed as an improved and better method of characterizing the runway roughness. The runway profiles of four airports (Washington...

The Color of Structures
Color is the subjective response to the objective stimulus of radiant energy of particular wavelength and intensity. Wavelengths determine hue; intensity determines brightness. Color is...

Simultaneous Geodimeter and Tellurometer Distances
Meteorological effects on electronically measured distances depend on the carrier wavelength. Distances were measured simultaneously with the Geodimeter 8 and the Tellurometer MRA3 MkII,...
