An evaluation of expedient methodology for identification of potentially expansive soils by Donald Snethen( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report concludes an evaluation of expedient methodology for identifying and qualitatively classifying potentially expansive soils. Seventeen published techniques used for identification/classification purposes were reviewed and evaluated using data collected from an extensive laboratory testing program. A definition of potential swell that is more consistent with field simulation requirements and more representative of in situ volume change behavior is presented. The results of the evaluation of published techniques reveal that the best techniques and thus the best indicators of potential swell are the liquid limit and plasticity index
Wastewater treatment on soils of low permeability : interim report by Ronald E Hoeppel( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study was limited to land treatment as a means of achieving advanced wastewater purification. Land treatment has the advantage of incorporating the recycling concept directly into its treatment mode, resulting in replacement rather than depletion of natural resources. Also, some form of control over ecologically damaging components is retained. This report presents results of a literature review on various methods of treating wastewater on land and also presents results of model tests of the overland flow method, with particular emphasis on nitrification and denitrification. Two types of soil systems for overland flow treatment of wastewater were investigated during these model tests. One soil was from an 8-year-old commercial cannery wastewater treatment site. The other was from an untreated natural site in a national forest that was low in indigenous soil organic matter; consequently, this latter system was amended with sludge in order to increase its organic matter content. Thus, both experimental soils represented soil systems that had more organic matter and biological activity than an average heavy clay soil
Physical model simulation of the hydraulics of Masonboro Inlet, North Carolina by Richard A Sager( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is part of the General Investigation of Tidal Inlets 'Inlet Hydraulics Study.' The study involves the investigation of the tide- and wave-generated flow regime and water-level fluctuations in the vicinity of coastal inlets. Masonboro Inlet was selected as an inlet to be used in determining the usefulness and reliability of physical and mathematical models in predicting hydraulic characteristics of inlet/bay systems. This report presents results obtained from the physical model study. The Masonboro Inlet fixed-bed model, constructed to scales of 1:300 horizontally and 1:60 vertically, reproduced an area extending to the -45 ft contour in the Atlantic Ocean and to the nodal points in each interior channel. The wetlands were accurately reproduced near the inlet; but those areas farther bayward, being relatively flat, were reproduced schematically and artificially bent into the research flume to provide storage for the tidal prism. The model was equipped with appurtenances necessary for accurate reproduction and measurement of tides, tidal currents, waves, and other significant prototype phenomena. Model verification tests assured that the model hydraulic regimen was in satisfactory agreement with that of the prototype. Five velocity ranges with three stations at each range were verified in the model (readings were taken at three depths at each station); and seven tidal elevation gages in the ocean and bay were also verified
An evaluation of movable-bed tidal inlet models by Subhash C Jain( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of movable-bed tidal inlet hydraulic models in predicting prototype behavior, by comparing model predictions with the observations made in the prototype, and to examine the scaling requirements for such models. Seven model studies were conducted by WES during the period 1939 to 1969. Calibrations of five of these models, as measured by bed topography changes, are evaluated by means of quantitative indicators, including correlation coefficients and root-mean-square (rms) error. The values of correlation coefficients, disregarding measurement errors in model and prototype soundings, were generally low and those of rms error high. Evaluation of data from the Galveston Harbor entrance model revealed that the shoaling rates and distribution along the navigation channel predicted by the model are not in good agreement with the prototype data. It was concluded that the model reproduction of details of bed topography was less accurate than that which might have been obtained had the proposed similitude criteria been used, and had more complete prototype data been available for calibration. Disagreement between model and prototype is believed to have been due to: scale effects introduced by nonsimilarity ofthe physical processes; insufficient prototype data for calibration and verification; oversimplification of the available prototype data for use in the model study; and experimental errors
An investigation of the natural microscale mechanisms that cause volume change in expansive clays by Donald Snethen( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report concludes a study of the natural microscale mechanisms which cause volume change in expansive soils. The mechanisms were defined and attempts were made to delineate the roles of the mechanisms in the volume change process by inferring the respective influence from observed physical, physicochemical, and mineralogical data. The three major microscale mechanisms which cause the volume change are clay particle attraction, cation hydration, and osmotic repulsion. These three major mechanisms can be represented by the total soil suction which is composed of two components, matrix and osmotic. The matrix component represents the clay particle attraction and cation hydration mechanisms. The osmotic component represents the osmotic repulsionmechanism

Mechanical constitutive models for engineering materials : final report by Behzad Rohani( Book )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the basic mathematical tools and physical concepts necessary for development of mechanical constitutive relationships are reviewed and presented in orthogonal Cartesian coordinate system, using both indicial and matrix notations. Following this review, various classes of isotropic constitutive relationships are discussed and examined. The analyses are restricted to deformation for which displacement gradients are small. The constitutive relationships are classified and presented in the following categories: Constitutive equations of elastic materials, Incremental constitutive equations, Constitutive equations of simple viscoelastic materials, and Constitutive equations of plastic materials

South jetty stability study, Masonboro Inlet, North Carolina : hydraulic model investigation by Robert D Carver( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hydraulic model flume tests were conduced to investigate the stability response of a jetty cross section proposed for the South Jetty, Masonboro Inlet, North Carolina. The original design (Plan 1) was not stable, and three additional designs were tested in an effort to find a satisfactory solution. All designs tested consist of one layer of armor stone subjected to breaking wave conditions. None of the designs were completely stable for all the designated storm conditions, and sufficient funds were not available to further the investigation. Based on the tests conducted, results show that all the designs were stable for storm conditions at the +8.5 ft mllw swl, but none of the designs were stable for storm conditions at the +12.5 ft mllw swl. Thus, whether the designs tested meet the no-damage criteria depends upon the selection of the design storm condition. (Author)

Impact of proposed runway extension at Little Rock Municipal Airport on water-surface elevations and navigation conditions in Arkansas River by J. Phillip Stewart( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 2-D numerical hydrodynamic model was coupled with a 2-D numerical sediment transport model to predict the impact of a proposed runway extension on water-surface elevations in the Arkansas River at Little Rock, Arkansas. The hydrodynamic results were also used as input data to a ship simulator to predict the impact of the proposed runway on navigation characteristics. The proposed runway will have a noticeable effect on the water-surface profile in the study reach. However, the increased head loss will not violate the 0.5 ft-maximum swellhead criterion. Velocities at and downstream of the construction will increase approximately 1 fps, or at least 10 percent. While there are some effects on navigation observed due to the proposed project, there does not appear to be any significant increase in navigation difficulty due to the runway extension.
