True Triaxial Piping Test Apparatus for Evaluation of Piping Potential in Earth Structures
(ASTM International, 2010)
ABSTRACT: Current methods available for testing the piping potential of soils in dams (pinhole test, hole erosion test, slot erosion test) are limited to cohesive soils that maintain an open hole within the sample. These ...
Reactivity of Aluminum Lactate-Modified Nanoscale Iron Particles with Pentachlorophenol in Soils
(Mary Ann Liebert, 2010-11-10)
Due to the hindered transport of nanoscale iron particles (NIP) in the subsurface caused by the agglomeration and adsorption of NIP during transport, the NIP surface has to be modified to improve the transport of NIP in ...
Nonadiabatic chemical-to-electrical energy conversion in heterojunction nanostructures
(American Physical Society, 2010-05-15)
Nonadiabatic energy dissipation by electron subsystem of nanostructured solids unveil interesting opportunities for the solid-state energy conversion and sensor applications. We found that planar Pt/GaP and Pd/GaP Schottky ...
An efficient methodology for generating synthetic populations with multiple control levels
(National Academy of Science, 2010)
This paper details a new methodology for controlling attributes on multiple analysis levels within a population synthesis program. The methodology determines how both household- and personlevel characteristics can jointly ...
