Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance Data Release for the Cody NTMS Quadrangle, Wyoming, Including Concentrations of Forty-Two Additional Elements

Description: "This report contains data for samples collected during a geochemical survey for uranium in the Cody National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) quadrangle, Wyoming, by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) as part of the nationwide Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR). [...] Totals of 627 water and 1482 sediment samples were collected from 1529 locations at a nominal density of one location per 10 km2. Water samples were collected from streams, springs, and wells, and sediment samples were collected from streams and springs. Most samples were collected by two private contractors in the summers of 1976 and 1977" (p. 1).

Model Study of the Outlet Structures for the Wappapello Dam

Description: This memorandum constitutes a final report of the study performed at the U. S. Waterways Experiment Station on a model of the outlet works for the Wappapello Dam The model was built undistorted to the linear scale ratio, model-to-prototype, of 1 to 25. The general purpose of the model study was to check the hydraulic characteristics of all elements in the design of the outlet works, and to develop means of correcting any uneconomic, unsafe, or undesirable conditions.

Geotechnical Aspects of Rock Erosion in Emergency Spillway Channels, Report 1

Description: "The problem of rock erosion in unlined emergency spillway channels is described in this first-of-a series report. Recent CE and non-CE case histories which illustrate the potentially hazardous impacts of excessive erosion in discharge channels are described as are the various factors controlling erosion and other responses to emergency spillway overflow. Research programs designed to improve geotechnical capabilities with respect to selection of cost-effective preventive and remedial measures in discharge channels where the risk of excessive erosion appears high are also discussed" (abstract, para. 1).

Dynamics of Wheeled Vehicles, Report 1: A Mathematical Model for the Traversal of Rigid Obstacles by a Pneumatic Tire, Appendix B: Digital Implementation of Segmented Tire Model

Description: Summary: "This appendix presents the procedures for digital implementation of the segmented tire model, developed in the basic report for an analog computer. Two procedures are required: (a) determination of the segment spring coefficient from measured load-deflection test results, and (b) computation of the resultant force vector transmitted to the axle. Digital programs for both procedures were written in Fortran IV for a GE-420 system, and are included" (p. xi).
