Scour and fill in ephemeral streams : technical report by Michael G Foley( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report the classical concept that mean bed elevation over an entire stream reach is lowered by scour during flood-wave passage and is restored by deposition in the waning flood phase (mean-bed scour and fill) is challenged. The alternative that both scour and fill occur concurrently at different migrating loci within a reach (local scour and fill) is more consistent with published field data. The field and laboratory investigations reported suggest that mean-bed scour and fill in a uniform channel is minor compared to local scour and fill caused by bedform migration, and that maximum local scour and fill may occur on the waning flood in some instances
Study of slope instability in the ocean floor (U) by Ronald F Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are three sections to the report: (a) ocean floor soil types and characteristics; (b) stability analysis of submarine slopes; and (c) discussion of problems, with conclusions and recommendations. In the first section the physical and mechanical properties of the soils encountered in various types of ocean-floor terrain are described and summarized in tables and diagrams. The application of conventional subaerial slope stability analyses to ocean-floor soils and their environment is examined in the second section. Some aspects of the stability of underconsolidated soils forming in areas of rapid deposition are given particular attention. Following a summary of the conclusions reached in the study, some detailed recommendations regarding future studies and experimental work are given in the final section of the report. (Author)
The steady-state response of multidegree-of-freedom systems with a spatially localized nonlinearity by Richard K Miller( )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis is concerned with the dynamic response of a General multidegree-of-freedom linear system with a one dimensional nonlinear constraint attached between two points. The nonlinear constraint is assumed to consist of rate-independent conservative and hysteretic nonlinearities and may contain a viscous dissipation element. The dynamic equations for general spatial and temporal load distributions are derived for both continuous and discrete systems. The method of equivalent linearization is used to develop equations which govern the approximate steady-state response to generally distributed loads with harmonic time dependence. The qualitative response behavior of a class of undamped chainlike structures with a nonlinear terminal constraint is investigated. It is shown that the hardening or softening behavior of every resonance curve is similar and is determined by the properties of the constraint. Also examined are the number and location of resonance curves, the boundedness of the forced response, the loci of response extrema, and other characteristics of the response. Particular consideration is given to the dependence of the response characteristics on the properties of the linear system, the nonlinear constraint, and the load distribution. Numerical examples of the approximate steady-state response of three structural systems are presented. These examples illustrate the application of the formulation and qualitative theory. It is shown that disconnected response curves and response curves which cross are obtained for base excitation of a uniform shear beam with a cubic spring foundation. Disconnected response curves are also obtained for the steady-state response to a concentrated load of a chainlike structure with a hardening hysteretic constraint. The accuracy of the approximate response curves is investigated

Experimental study of environment and heat transfer in a room fire by E. E Zukoski( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report contains a description of an ongoing study of gravity currents for conditions which match those we expect to find in unwanted fires in building. A review is made of the pertinent literature and a description is given of the flow regimes which can exist for ideal gravity currents when viscous effects, heat transfer, and mixing are ignored. The influence of boundary conditions fixed by the method used to withdraw the fluid displaced by the current is given. Algebraic equations for the thickness of the current and the velocity of the head are derived for these ideal flows. The influences of viscosity and mixing are briefly discussed and the status of salt water and gas modeling experiments is given

Theoretical methods for spintronics in semiconductors with applications by Xavier Cartoixa Soler( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An implementation of an 8-band Envelope Function Approximation method faithful to the Td symmetry of bulk zincblendes has been made. It has been used to compute the bands for quantum wells with and without BIA effects included, and demonstrates that the BIA effects can be of the same order of magnitude as SIA (i.e., Rashba) effects. A 2-band Hamiltonian describing BIA effects is proposed. The origin of spurious solutions for certain values of the input parameters is determined and a condition for its absence is derived. Modest modifications to the superlattice method allow the computation of spin-dependent transmission coefficients with the multiband quantum transmitting boundary method. The effect of BIA on the transmitted states and the spin filtering action of an asymmetric resonant interband tunneling diode are investigated
Integrated concurrent multi-band radios and multiple-antenna systems by Hossein Hashemi( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis presents a unique view on radio systems that can simultaneously function at multiple frequency bands. These radios offer a higher data-rate and robustness in addition to the added functionality in the performance of wireless systems. Our treatment includes the definition of such novel radios, formulation of their singular characteristics, proposition for transceiver architectures, and invention of circuit blocks

Mixing in gas phase turbulent jets by David R Dowling( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is an experimental investigation of the mixing of the nozzle fluid of a round, turbulent jet with the entrained reservoir fluid, using laser-Rayleigh scattering methods. The measurements, at Reynolds numbers of 5, 000 and 16,000 cover the axial range from 20 to 90 jet exit diameters and resolve the full range of temporal and spatial concentration scales. The measured mean and rms values of the concentration, and the mean scalar dissipation rate, when estimated from the time derivative of concentration, are consistent with jet similarity laws. Concentration fluctuation power spectra are found to be self- similar along rays emanating from the virtual origin of the jet, and are consistent with the universal form of scalar spectra proposed by Gibson (1968 II). The probability density functions for the concentration, the time derivative of concentration, and the square of the time derivative of concentration, are compiled and are also found to be self-similar along rays. Features of the measured distributions and spectra are consistent with the existence of large-scale structures within the flow that span the local diameter of the jet's turbulent cone. On the centerline of the jet, the scaled probability density function of jet gas concentration is found to be almost independent of the Reynold's number while the local mixing rate in the inner part of the jet is not. The usual assumptions concerning isotropy and correlation of derivatives are found to lead to erroneous results for the probability density function of the scalar dissipation rate
