Watershed-level Analysis of Urban Raingarden Performance
Urban flooding became to be a big issue for many cities in the world due to the urbanization. Best Management Practices (BMP) are considered to be an economically friendly solution for the urban storm water problem. The ...
Investigation into lowering cement clinker content using available materials
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2012-08-17)
Reducing cement clinker with mineral addition has been considered an efficient way of saving energy, lowering CO2 footprint of cement and concrete industries. The trend of using limestone as mineral addition in cement ...
Bed degradation of the lower Missouri River
The phenomenon of bed degradation can be due to a multiplicity of causes, but ultimately reflects a change in either the sediment input or sediment transport capacity of a system. Causes for the accelerated rate of degradation of the lower Missouri...
Parametric Soil-Structure Modeling for Rapid Climatic Disaster Response
Global climate changes have seemly caused acerbating impacts on coastal environments in terms of severe meteorological hazards, such as hurricanes and their induced storm surges, flooding, and heavy precipitation. Recent ...
Performance of Steel Pipelines Backfilled with Controlled Low-Strength Material (CLSM) under Seismic Wave Propagation and Reverse-Slip Fault Rupture
(University of Missouri -- Kansas City, 2019)
Seismic events may drastically damage buried pipelines affecting economy and public safety. Traditionally, buried pipelines are bedded and backfilled with compacted soils, which is labor intensive, time consuming, and ...
Characterization of "t-z" model design parameters for augered cast-in-place piles using field load test data
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2012-08-24)
on developing â€œt-zâ€� model parameters from analysis of static axial compression and tension load test data from a project site along the Missouri River floodplain in northwest Missouri. Data was collected from a total of twelve axial load tests (six...
