Tension bolt behavior in moment connections for seismic applications
Recent seismic events such as the Northridge earthquake have left behind, along with destruction serious doubts about the performance of the welded moment connection, until now the most popular and reliable steel beam-column ...
Effect of coarse aggregate characteristics on hardened properties of concrete
The effects of coarse aggregate properties and characteristics on the properties of hardened concrete were examined in this experimental program. Tests were performed to determine effects on modulus of elasticity, compressive ...
Solidification/stabilization of contaminated spent blasting media in Portland cement concretes and mortars
The use of abrasive blasting to remove paint containing lead, cadmium, and chromium from steel bridges is producing contaminated spent blasting media which may be classified as hazardous by the Environmental Protection ...
Mathematical modeling of depth filtration : investigation of initial removal through three-dimensional trajectory analysis
Depth filtration is used in virtually every drinking water plant and is rapidly becoming a standard unit process in wastewater treatment. Currently, the only truly predictive approach to modeling depth filtration is ...
Impact of aggregate gradation and type on asphalt mixture characteristics
This thesis addresses the impact of aggregate gradation and type on Hot Mix Asphaltic Concrete (HMAC) characteristics. Several different, but related topics are covered and results from several experiments are presented. ...
Turbulence measurements in a meandering laboratory river channel
Measurements of turbulence characteristics were performed in a laboratory meandering river channel. The measurements were performed using a single hot-film anemometer at five sections beginning from the apex of the first ...
