Condition Survey: Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota

Description: The purpose of this report is to present the results of a condition survey performed at Minot Air Force Base (MAFB), North Dakota, during 11-15 April 1972. The three major areas of interest considered in this condition survey were the structural condition of the primary airfield pavements, the condition of pavement repairs and the types of maintenance materials that have been used at this airfield, and any detrimental effects of frost action to the pavement facilities.

Instrumentation Observations from the U-Frame Lock of the Arkansas River Lock and Dam 5

Description: Report regarding analysis of a lock and dam in the Arkansas River. "The purpose of this study is to take 8 years of instrumentation data from Lock No. 5 and report it in such a manner that it can be used later in other studies, such as a finite element analysis. Included is a discussion of the quality of the data and a brief comparison of measured values with design cases for several soil-structure interaction cases" (p. 5).

Rehabilitation of the South Jetty, Ocean City, Maryland

Description: Partial abstract: Frequent dredging requirements and scouring at the foundation of Ocean City Inlet's south jetty resulted in a study to determine the source of the shoaling and scouring. The study concluded that sand was being transported northward along Assateague Island, through and over the south jetty, and deposited inside the inlet. The sand was then transported north by ebb currents where it encroached on the Federal navigation channel. A rehabilitation program was initiated to create a littoral barrier to eliminate the shoaling problem and to repair the scour hold. Three headland breakwaters were constructed to stabilize Northern Assateague Island. The site was selected as part of the Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects (MCCP) Program to determine how well the rehabilitation project accomplished its design purpose.

An Analytical Model for Predicting Cross-Country Vehicle Performance, Appendix D: Performance of Amphibious Vehicles in the Water-Land Interface (Hydrologic Geometry)

Description: Summary: "Forty tests were conducted with two amphibious tracked vehicles and one amphibious wheeled vehicle at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., and near Khon Kaen, Thailand, to determine the vehicles' capabilities for exiting closed bodies of water. Empirical relations, based on the data collected in this study and in previous studies, are presented to support the conclusions that performance of amphibious tracked and wheeled vehicles (in terms of "go-no go") in the water-land interface can be correlated with soil strength (expressed as average cone index of the 0- to 6-in. soil layer), and that the slope-climbing ability in the water-land interface of the tracked vehicles tested compares favorably with that of the same vehicles operating on land surfaces of similar soil composition and consistency" (p. ix).

Investigation of Performance of Concrete and Concreting Materials Exposed to Natural Weathering, Volume 1: Active Investigations

Description: Partial summary: "To assess the durability of concrete and other materials used in concrete construction when exposed to natural weathering, the Corps of Engineers maintains severe-, mild-, moderate-, and non-weathering exposure stations at various locations in the United States. Specimens from actual structures and experimental specimens in which the amounts or kinds of components are varied are exposed until they fail or until testing is completed, whichever occurs first. The specimens are inspected periodically, and tested to determine their dynamic modulus of elasticity and pulse velocity. [...] Volume 1 contains the active evaluations" (p. ix).

Description: Report on test firings conducted by a U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) test facility. "The Mississippi Test Facility, located approximately 40 miles northeast of New Orleans, La., is the site of the test stands built to test the first and second stages of the Saturn V space vehicle. At the request of the U. S. Army Engineer District, Mobile, plans were developed for instrumenting the test stands to obtain data on foundation base pressures, lateral wall pressures, and pile loads during and after the actual test firings of the Saturn V engines" (p. xi).
