Physical and hydrologic properties of water-bearing deposits in subsiding areas in central California
EXTENSIVE AREAS OF LAND SUBSIDENCE ARE FOUND IN THE SAN JOAQUIN AND SANTA CLARA VALLEYS, CALIFORNIA. THIS SUBSIDENCE CAUSES SERIOUS PROBLEMS IN THE CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE OF COSTLY ENGINEERINGExpand
Specific yield - laboratory experiments showing the effect of time on column drainage
The increasing use of ground water from many major aquifers in the United States has required a more thorough understanding of gravity drainage, or specific yield. This report describes one phase ofExpand
Hail Growth by Stochastic Collection in a Cumulus Model
Abstract A one-dimensional, time-dependent numerical model of a cumulus cloud is presented that generates hail and radar reflectivities at realistic rates. The distribution of hydrometeors evolvesExpand
Specific Yield--Column drainage and centrifuge moisture content
The specific yield of a rock or soil, with respect to water, is the ratio of (1) the volume of water which, after being saturated, it will yield by gravity to (2) its own volume. Specific retentionExpand
VIBRATORY COMPACTION IN THE LABORATORY OF GRANULAR MATERIALS IN LONG COLUMNS
FOR A LABORATORY STUDY OF THE DRAINAGE OF LONG COLUMNS OF POROUS MEDIA, A MAXIMUM DENSITY, UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE COLUMN, WAS REQUIRED. RESEARCH RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF AExpand
