Impacts of the 1993 Flood on the Mississippi River in Illinois
The 1993 flood has now been recognized as one of the greatest floods on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Its geographical extent included portions of Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin,...

The Rest of the Best
Nominations for this year's Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award ranged from a channel built to control flood waters to the construction of a wastewater pollution...

Minimizing the Probable Maximum Flood
A newly-developed probable maximum precipitation (PMP) estimate for Wisconsin and Michigan reduced precipitation depths by 20%. Should a given area's probable maximum flood...

The Art of Infrastructure
Phoenix' capital improvement plan is subtitled Our Share Environment. It requires that one percent of the capital budget go toward artistic input on all infrastructure projects:...

The North East Wisconsin (NEW) Waters for Tomorrow Initiative

Urban Runoff and the Environment
This paper discusses complex water quality problems, including management of urban runoff. Mathematical modelling is used to asses runoff quantity and quality. Environmental impact...

Evolution of the Santee/Pee Dee Delta Complex, South Carolina, USA
The Santee/Pee Dee delta is located on the north-central portion of the lower coastal plain physiographic province of south carolina, USA, which is underlain by pleistocene strand plain...

Probable Maximum Precipitation Study for Michigan and Wisconsin: Procedures and Results

Issues in GIS-Based Subsurface Data Management
Obstacles and barriers preclude an interagency GIS application for managing spatially-related subsurface data. Such a system would enable geotechnical and earthquake engineers from state...

Use of CLSM Fly Ash Slurry for Underground Facilities
This paper presents the results of research performed in developing and using flowable fly ash slurry which falls under the classification of Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM) as...

Piles for Marquette University Math Building
This paper presents a comparison of static pile capacity predictions using CPT cone resistance results with results of a test pile program and production pile driving. Pile capacity prediction...

Service Records of Chicago District Breakwater Stone and How These Relate to Test Results
Breakwater stone production is limited to areas with geologic outcrops capable of producing large rocks. The most reliable breakwater stone is that which exhibits the highest degree of...

Quartzite—A Hard Rock Approach to Rubble Mounds
The quality of stone in rubble mound structures has always been a concern but seems to be more so the past few years. Breakwaters built in the 1920's using granite armour...

Construction on Wisconsin's Lake Michigan Coast
This paper provides a preliminary evaluation of a set of 100 residential properties along Wisconsin's Lake Michigan coast; an examination of the vulnerability of coastal homes and adequacy...

Estimation of Wind Fields for Coastal Modeling
Wind is an essential driving force for waves, circulation, and storm surge in coastal and estuarine areas. As with other horizontally 2-dimensional models, Corps of Engineers' (CE) numerical...

Hydrodynamic and Water Quality Modeling of Lower Green Bay
A confined disposal facility (CDF) for dredged material presently exists in lower Green Bay, Wisconsin. A planned expansion of the CDF is being studied to assess its impact on current...

Evaluating Spillway Adequacy
More than a third of all dam failures are caused by overtopping. Equipment malfunctions or operations errors are sometimes to blame, but the principal cause is inadequate spillway capacity....

Principles of Infrared Thermography and Application for Assessment of the Deterioration of the Bridge Deck at the Zoo Interchange
This paper details the principles of infrared thermography from the underlying theoretical considerations to the physical constraints involved with performing the test. Infrared (IR) thermography...

Brule Project Spillway Rehabilitation and Expansion
Brule Hydroelectric Project is located near Florence, Wisconsin, on the Brule River about 1.5 miles upstream of its confluence with the Michigamme River. The 80 year old dam developes...
