This case study describes the design, and construction of an earth dam built on recently sedimented tailings consisting of low strength, low plasticity silt/clay, and variably silty sand. The tailings were encountered within the construction limits of Cell 7 at the 4km2 Loxahatchee (L-8) Reservoir in western Palm Beach County, Florida. Fully coupled steady state and transient seepage models with slope stability analyses were performed for operational and rapid drawdown conditions, respectively, using both limit equilibrium methods (LEM) and finite element stress-based modeling (FESBM) techniques. In addition, stability calculations utilizing fully coupled stress/pore pressure analysis were performed to analyze rapid drawdown stability during drawdown. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

Activities have been initiated in ICAO and AEEC to further develop the Aeronautical Telecommunications Network/Internet Protocol Suite (ATN/IPS) rather than the ATN/Open System Interconnection (ATN/OSI) protocols for use by safety and regularity of flight applications. Aside from the basic approach to mobility within a given Air/Ground Access Network an approach to multi-link operation over multiple Air/Ground Access Networks is needed. A description of local mobility management using PMIPv6 for the VHF Digital Link Mode 2 (VDL-2) terrestrial access network was provided in [1]. This paper proposes the use of MIPv6 as the global mobility management protocol which provides the desired multi-link capability. © 2016 IEEE.

This SBIR Phase I project will develop a robust commercial acid-tolerant culture of the anaerobic bacterium Dehalococcoides (Dhc) for in-situ treatment of groundwater contaminated with tetrachloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE). The project team will conduct a search of acidic contaminated sites for natural Dhc strains having acid tolerance. The most promising strains will be combined to create a commercial dechlorinating culture. The broader/commercial impact of the proposed project will be the deployment of a bioremediation solution to address and solve many existing acid-caused remediation failures and thereby increase the effectiveness of existing in-situ biological treatment techniques as a cost-effective and successful remedial option to eliminate PCE and TCE from groundwater.

This Small BusinessI nnovatio esearch( SBIR) Phase1 project addressesth e developmento f a bacterial culture to degrade PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) in contaminated soils and sediments. PCBs are persistent, toxic contaminants which accumulate in the fatty tissues of animals,c ontaminatingf ish and humans.P CB-degradingb acteriah ave beend ifficult to produce. In2009, a readily-grownb acterials peciesw as shownb y BioremediationC onsultingI nc (BCI) to degrade the most harmful and carcinogenic type of PCBs. This finding allows the development of an anaerobic PCB-degrading culture for cost-etfective inoculation into PCB-contaminated sediments. The proposed research will document the ability of BCI's culture to extensively dechlorinate three types of commercial PCB mixtures, and will develop methods of rapid culturing. The broader/commerciailm pactso f this researcha ret he developmento f a bacteriai noculantt hat will degrade PCBs in soil and sediment. PCBs are toxic chemicals used historically as heatresistant fluids in many industrial applications, including transformers in the electric utility industry. Several hundred million pounds were manufactured and disposed, resulting in contamination of soils and river sediments. The recent finding at BCI, that a strain of dechlorinating bacteria is capable of dechlorinating PCBs. provides an opportunity for BCI to develop a commercial culture for inoculating contaminated sites with PCB-degrading bacteria. The marketing of this product will be complementedb y our already-successfusl aleso f other dechlorinating cultures used in treatment of contamination by diverse chlorinated compounds. Major stakeholdersin the utility industries,a nd remediationc ontractors,h ave expressedin terest in partnering with BCI and/or obtaining culture.
