Scale Model Study Benefits Hydropower Project
The Jim Falls Project on the Chippewa River in Central Wisconsin deals with the replacement of an aged 11 MW run-of-river hydropower plant by a 48 MW peaking plant. A hydraulic model built...

A Unified Hydrodynamic-Water Quality Model
To understand the cause-effect relationships controlling water quality in dynamically narrow estuaries, a time dependent branching, laterally averaged (longitudinal and vertical) hydrodynamic...

Top Projects of 1986
In the 1986 ASCE competition to select the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement of the Year, 14 projects were nominated. This article describes the 10 non-winners. Technically the...

Water Quality Management of the Fox River System

Project Management in Wisconsin
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has a decentralized organization with a central office staff providing functional and policy analysis and eight district offices scattered throughout...

Reflections on Racine's Rebound
The existing harbor in Racine has approximately 110 acres of water surface bounded on the north and south side by one-half -mile long concrete breakwaters and on the west by the city....

Runoff Controls in Wisconsin's Priority Watersheds
The Wisconsin nonpoint source program is becoming more heavily involved in urban runoff controls. About 3 million of state cost sharing money has already been allocated to controlling...

Diagnostics for Improving Transit Performance
Scarce financial resources challenge every level of government to operate as efficiently as possible while delivering services that are effective. This is particularly true of transit...

The Wisconsin Professional Development Degree

Biggest Highway Rebuild
The reconstruction of the Wisconsin Interstate 90 and 94 involved 32 miles of 6-lane pavement. Most of the concrete aggregate for the job was recycled concrete pavement and all pavement...

Numerical Modeling of Groundwater-Lake Systems
Groundwater inflows can have important effects on the chemistry and biology of a lake ecosystem. For example, studies of lakes in Northern Wisconsin documented localization of ferromanganese...

Factors Influencing Oxygen Depletion in Green Bay
Dissolved oxygen depletion in the lower Fox River (Wisconsin) and Green Bay (Lake Michigan) have historically been tied to discharges of organic matter from municipal waste treatment plants...

Rock Masses
Modeling of Underground Openings/Probability of Slope Failure/Fracture of Intact Rock
While soil mechanics has been the dominant interest of Civil Engineers since Karl Terzaghi's recognition of the principle of effective stress, rock mechanics is becoming increasingly...

Influence of Depth-of-Cover on Pipe-Soil Interaction
A major research effort was undertaken to study the structural behavior of a natural gas pipeline under several critical service conditions. The program included a field test site near...

An Instrumented Soil-Pipe System: Automated Data Acquisition and Management
A 16-in. natural gas pipeline near Racine, Wisconsin, had been in service for some 30 years. In 1982 road widening operations on a line parallel with the pipe resulted in a heavily trafficked...

Stress and Strain Responses of a Soil-Pipe System to Vehicular Traffic
A 16-in. natural gas pipeline near Racine, Wisconsin, had been in service for some 30 years. In 1982 road widening operations on a line parallel with the pipe presented the opportunity...

Low Cement Content High Strength Concrete
The fundamental objective of this research project was to develop mix design information for structural grade concrete using high fly ash content. The fly ash used in this project was...

The Group Approach to Implementing Micro Systems
This paper highlights a nearly three year effort to implement microcomputer information systems on 16 small and medium sized transit properties in Wisconsin using a 'group...

Managing Federal Aid Using Microcomputers
Wisconsin's federal aid for highway improvement is about 225,000,000 annually. The obligation authority (the ability to spend the federal aid) is limited to an estimated 162,000,000...

Implementing a Maintenance Program in Wisconsin
A vehicle maintenance and parts inventory control microcomputer package was developed and implemented for thirteen small transit properties as a part of the Statewide Microcomputer Implementation...
