Rainfall Infiltration-Induced Landslides

Estimating Slope Stability Reduction due to Rain Infiltration Mounding
(Originally published in J. of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering 2006, 132(9), 1219-1228.)...

Mitigation of Impervious Surface Hydrology Using Bioretention in North Carolina and Maryland
As an increasingly adopted stormwater best management practice to remedy hydrologic impairment from urban imperviousness, bioretention facilities need rigorous field performance research...

Estimation of Curve Numbers for Concrete and Asphalt
All impervious surfaces are assigned a Curve Number (CN) of 98. However, no field or experimental evidence exists (to our knowledge) that shows why the impervious CN was assigned a value...

Post-Fire Predictions of Peak Discharge

Effects of Prior Rainfall and Storm Variables on Curve Number Rainfall-Runoff

Probabilistic Simplified and Detailed Subsurface Drainage Water Quality Modeling of Nitrate Leaching
A transparent uncertainty structure is derived for simplified and detailed conceptual nitrate leaching as a result of a probabilistic modelling procedure. The uncertainty structure consists...

How the Impacts of Urbanization Are Being Addressed in the Los Angeles River Watershed
Due to an increased interest and concern about the Los Angeles urban environment, studies have begun to focus on the local water cycle and the impact of impervious land on the Los Angeles...

Progress Report: ASCE Task Committee on State of the Practice in Curve Number Hydrology
In response to a growing awareness of the role of the Curve Number method in engineering and environmental impact applications, and its limitations, the Committee was formed in late 1997,...

The New Orleans Network
Though Seattle and Portland are the cities usually associated with high rainfall, the New Orleans metropolitan area averages 58 in. (1,473 mm) of rainfall each year—more than any other...

Re-Creating the Rainbow Bridge
A team of American and Chinese experts constructed a pier-free arch bridge in China based only on a 12th century...

Advice from the Old Rainmaker

Fanfare (Available only in Special Structural Issue)
The owners of the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team decided in the late 1980s that their current home, the 50-year-old County Stadium, could no longer offer the facilities that attract crowds...

Challenges Created by the Hierarchy in Facility Rehabilitation Projects

An Analysis of Public-Side Sewer Rehabilitation

Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) Prediction of Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO) Events and Water Quality in Milwaukee, WI

Sensitivity of Stormwater Conveyance System Cost to Design Recurrence Interval
(No paper) The cost of a piped and/or swaled stormwater system is determined principally by the storm recurrence interval (e.g., 5-year design storm) used to design it. That is, the present...

Practical Applications of Gage-Adjusted Radar–Rainfall Estimates
(no paper) It is radar's estimates of rainfall at a specific location that tends to disappoint. On the other hand, the strength of rain gage observations is in estimating rainfall at a...

Fuzzy Rule-Based Forecasting of Extreme Rainfall Probability Conditioned on Sea Surface Temperature
(No paper) The recent El Nino event demonstrated the importance of sea-surface temperature on rainfall anomalies. The purpose of this paper is to develop a methodology to forecast extreme...
