The Thermal Regime Surrounding a Longitudinal Edge Drain
Newton Airfield in Jackman, Maine, was constructed in 1986 to perform as a drained pavement system. The drainage design consisted of a permeable base course with a longitudinal edge drain...

New Admixtures for Cold Weather Concreting
Chemicals were tested for their ability to promote strength gain in portland cement concrete at low temperature. The admixtures depressed the freezing point of the mix water and accelerated...

High-Performance Concrete in All-Weather Deck Pours
A high-performance concrete mix enhanced with a combination of microsilica, superplasticizer, and high dosages of an corrosion-inhibiting, accelerating admixture (calcium nitrite); proved...

Impact of Cold Weather on Building Construction Scheduling
Weather impact on a building construction schedule is often significant in cold regions. Most deterministic scheduling methods are unable to directly account for the effects of weather...

Environment One: A Master Plan Study for a New Scientific Research Station at the Geographic South Pole
The existing research station at the geographic South Pole is approaching the end of its useful life. This master plan study focuses on determining the technical and functional requirements...

Cold Climate Building Research at Wasa Base, Antarctica
During the Antarctic summer season of 1988-89 a permanent Swedish research station was erected at Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. The station, named Wasa, is situated on a nunatak. A corresponding...

River Ice Cover Cracking for Various Boundary Conditions
The breakup of river ice covers is commonly initiated by the formation of cracks parallel to river banks. These cracks usually result from a change in the water level due to a rapid rising...

A Mechanistic Approach to Pavement Design for Nome Airport
The analysis of performance and design of the pavement structure for the North-South runway at Nome Airport is based on the mechanistic approach. In the mechanistic approach, calculated...

Treatment of Unstable Foundation Areas in Alaska's Pavement Management System
In the State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities Pavement Management System (PMS) unstable foundation areas are defined as sections of roadway that experience...

Recommended Cold Regions Meteorological Instrumentation
For nearly 30 years, CRREL has studied environmental conditions in winter weather. These efforts have concentrated on providing field-measured meteorological data and historical climatological...

Flow and Transport Around a Noncontinuous Horizontal Layer at Yucca Mountain
Computer simulations were used to examine the effect of a noncontinuous horizontal layer on the flow field and contaminant transport of a simplified conceptual model. The domain consisted...

An Alternative Method to Mariotte Reservoir System for Maintaining Constant Hydraulic Pressure
Several problems with the Mariotte reservoir system were discovered when it was used to apply a constant water pressure as a boundary condition for a prolonged period. The constant-pressure...

Effect of Camera Geometry on Thermographs for Pavement Crack Detection
The research focused on the effects of camera heights and tilt angles on the ability to detect cracks in thermographs obtained with an infrared camera. Results indicate that differences...

Utilization of Weather Radar for Hydrologic Forecasting
New technologies to collect, analyze, store, retrieve and display hydrologic data offer significant improvements to conventional methodologies used for predicting hydrologic events. Computer...

Using Climate Model Output to Assess the Impacts of Climate Change on Water Resources
The use of general circulation models (GCMs) to provide climate data for regional assessments of the impacts of changing climate on water resources stretches the limits of what the models...

A Comparison of Accuracies of Steady Water Surface Profiles
The author compares the effect of varying boundary conditions and cross sectional spacing on one dimensional steady water surface profiles. Six streams are modeled using both the 10 and...

Uncertainty in Urban Hydrologic Modeling
Uncertainty is pervasive in hydrologic modeling. Uncertainty is present in the formulation of the physical situation to be modeled, in the form of the model to be used, in the boundary...

The Moving Contact Line
The flow field around the moving contact line, generated by an impulsive, horizontal motion of a vertical plate, is studied numerically. The two-dimensional, unsteady Navier-Stokes equations,...

Time-Domain Transmitting Boundary Condition in Fluid-Structure Interaction Studies
One of the major difficulties in the nonlinear analyses of fluid-structure interactions has been the lack of exact expressions for the transmitting boundary in the time domain. Researchers...

On the Solution of Plates and Shells Mixed Boundary Problems
Strain-stress state analysis on plates and shells under mixed boundary conditions is of significant practical value: a lot of problems, arisen in machine design, civil engineering etc.,...
