Development and application of vegetative buffer width modeling using geographic information systems
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
It has been widely accepted that vegetative buffers are effective in removing nonpoint source pollutants. However, problems focusing on vegetated buffers studies remain, especially in technical aspects (i.e., how to design ...
Point target interferometry as applied to the characterization of localized deformation features
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Monitoring of ground deformation is a critical component of geotechnical engineering practice. This study investigated the application of synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR), using point target analysis (IPTA) for characterizing...
Load transfer in reticulated and non-reticulated micropiles from large-scale tests
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Using micropiles for slope stabilization is a proven technique but there are many uncertainties with how load is transferred from the soil to the structural elements. A large-scale model was constructed to test model slopes ...
Operational analysis of cross-country trips on rail in Vietnam
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] The analysis of current transit conditions is vital for planning and forecasting future transit demand. Previous analyses of Vietnam railways have ...
Statistical and simulation methods for evaluating stationary and mobile work zone impacts
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
In 2014, nearly 10% of overall congestion on freeways was due to the presence of work zones (WZs), equivalent to 310 million gallons of fuel loss (FHWA, 2017a). In terms of safety, in the US, every 5.4 minutes, a WZ related ...
First-principle simulation of blast barrier effectiveness for the development of simplified design tools
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] Blast barrier walls have been shown to reduce the blast load on structures in most scenarios. Analysis of existing data for blast barrier response ...
