This paper describes the liquefaction triggering relationships by NCEER (1997) and Youd et al. (2001, 2003), Idriss and Boulanger (2008) and Boulanger and Idriss (2014), used to assess the susceptibility of the loose sands to liquefy.
This paper discusses a new power generation cycle based on the fundamental thermodynamic concepts of constant volume combustion and reheat.
The objective of this paper is to provide a proposal for design of leak‐tight nuclear safety related liquid‐containing and buried structures by meshing the appropriate provisions of design, leak‐tightness and durability of the ACI 350 Code for Concrete Liquid‐Containing Structures with those of the ACI 349 Code for Concrete Nuclear Structures.
This paper reviews integral methods to numerically solve the Bernoulli equation in compressible flow for several common situations: orifices, relief valves, and control valves.
This paper will provide some guidance through the labyrinth of codes and often conflicting requirements that must be traversed in order to achieve a robust design.
The paper introduces systems expansion execution essentials, pre-enabling works and the controlled expansion process.
This paper examines the feasibility of power generation for a LNG Liquefaction facility and makes a comparison of such a system to traditional simple cycle gas turbines and combined cycle systems.
This paper details the water conservation evaluation of alternatives and cost/benefit analysis based on current and predicted water usage for mine development projects.
This paper presents an alternative approach of performing seismic soil structure interaction (SSI) analysis.
