Experimental relationships between moduli for soil layers beneath concrete pavements( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two subgrades and four rigid pavement test sections were constructed and instrumented to recover experimental information of soil/rigid pavement behavior beneath static loadings. Pavement deflections and pavement/soil strain data were recorded for incremental static loads applied to a 30 inch diameter steel plate. Tests were conducted for comparison of experimentally collected data with Westergaard and elastic layer analyses of the test sections to investigate whether a consistent mathematical relationship exists between the two methods of analysis. To this end material characterizations were carried out for the component materials in the 4 different pavement sections and analytically predicted and experimentally obtained response data were compared"--Technical report documentation page
Shrinkage-compensating cement for airport pavement : phase 2 by John R Keeton( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Details of a research study on shrinkage-compensating concrete for airport pavements are presented. A total of 53 slab-type prisms 1 foot square and 8, 12, 16, or 20 inches thick were subjected to shrinkage, cooling, and heating. Concrete compressive stresses induced by expansion were calculated, as well as residual compressive stresses after losses due to shrinkage and cooling. The residual concrete compressive stresses, coupled with results from previous field applications of shrinkage-compensating concrete, are used as a basis for recommendation of transverse joint spacings up to 200 feet.

Lime-stabilized native soil as a base course for light aircraft pavement by R. B Brownie( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Present Federal Aviation Administration policy does not recommend the use of lime-stabilized soil as base course for airport pavements. The potential savings in cost and materials by using this type of construction for light-duty airport pavements (aircraft gross weights less than 30,000 lbs) led to the use of lime-stabilized native soil in place of other base course materials at three airports in the Southwestern United States. Those airports are located at Chino, California, Big Bear Lake, California, and Payson, Arizona. The compositions of those base courses were determined by laboratory analyses of core borings and soil samples. Visual condition surveys were performed, and surface deflections under load were measured. Climatological data and aircraft traffic histories were obtained. All of those factors and the performance of the pavements were analyzed, and a suggested specification was prepared for constructing lime-stabilized base courses

Surface oil displacements by U.S. Coast Guard 82-foot cutters by Steven P Kraus( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Navy, in cooperation with the U.S. Coast Guard, is conducting design and feasibility studies for a portable oil sorbent spreader and retriever for use aboard military and commercial vessels-of-opportunity during oil spill clean up operations. As part of this program, the U.S. Navy's Civil Engineering Laboratory (CEL), Port Hueneme, California contracted with the Geography Remote Sensing Unit (GRSU), University of California, Santa Barbara to provide field support and data analysis services in conjunction with sea tests to determine the effects of vessels on surface oil slicks. A total of four sea truth data acquisition cruises were conducted through natural oil seeps in the Santa Barbara Channel, California between December 1977 and February 1978. Coast Guard 82-foot patrol boats served as representative vessels of opportunity for the tests. This report describes the data collection program associated with the sea tests and the results of our analysis of field data. (Author)
Subsea trenching in the Arctic by Malcolm Mellor( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental conditions are described for the continental shelf of the western Arctic, and for the shelf of Labrador and Newfoundland. Special emphasis is given to the gouging of bottom sediments by ice pressure ridges and icebergs, and an approach to systematic risk analysis is outlined. Protection os subsea pipelines and cables by trenching and direct embedment is discussed, touching on burial depth, degree of protection, and environmental impact. Conventional land techniques can be adapted for trenching across the beach and through the shallows, but in deeper water special equipment is required. The devices discussed include hydraulic dredges, submarine dredges, plows, rippers, water jets, disc saws and wheel ditchers, ladder trenchers and chain saws, routers and slot millers, ladder dredges, vibratory and percussive machines, and blasting systems. Consideration is given to the relative merits of working with seabed vehicles, or alternatively with direct surface support from vessels or from the sea ice. (Author)

Handbook for design of undersea, pressure-resistant concrete structures by H. H Haynes( Book )

3 editions published between 1976 and 1986 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook summarizes the development of concrete pressure- resistant structures for ocean applications and presents the results in the form of design guidelines. The guidelines are based primarily on test results from laboratory and ocean investigations of model concrete structures conducted at NCEL over the past two decades; the guides are principally for designing cylindrical and spherical plain (unreinforced) concrete structures to resist the externally applied pressures of hydrostatic loads and thus to be safe from implosion failure. Thin-walled and thick-walled structures are considered. For predicting implosion pressure of thin-walled cylinders, buckling expressions by Donnell for moderately long cylinders and by Bresse for long cylinders are simplified by incorporating experimentally determined numerical values for the modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio of high strength concrete and then modified by an empirically determined plasticity reduction factor. For thin- walled spheres, a conservative buckling expression was developed. The design approach for predicting implosion pressures of thick-walled cylinders and spheres is based on material failure in the wall of the structure; the predicted failure stress in the structure is related to the standard concrete compressive strength, f(c), by empirically derived strength increase factors. Keywords: Pressure-resistant structures, concrete spheres, concrete cylinders, submerged concrete structures, undersea structures, long-term loading, unreinforced concrete, compressive strength, cyclic loading, implosion, failure mode, durability, structural design

Handbook for uplift-resisting anchors by R. J Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this handbook is to identify and document the status of special types of anchors having the capability to resist uplift forces; provide data on the properties and performance of these special anchors; consolidate the data in order to facilitate anchor selection; and establish a reference that can be readily updated to incorporate new data and new developments. Descriptions and data on anchors that are currently either shelf items or in an advanced stage of development are presented. Also, information on other less advanced designs and concepts is given. Sizes, weights, and operational characteristics of these special anchors, plus methods for estimating their penetration into seafloor sediments, and their pull-out resistance, are provided
