Effects of Sea Surface Movement on Offshore Structures
Examinations are made of the effects of the sea surface movement on the fundamental model response of deep-water, Wave-excited offshore structures. These effects are accounted for by using...

Restoring the Everglades
Are constructed wetlands an effective management strategy for restoring and protecting the Everglades from phosphorus over-enrichment caused by agricultural stormwater runoff? The $13.85...

The Effects of Spatial Resolution in Modeling the North Fork Drainage of the Gunnison River Basin
The U.S. Geological Survey Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) is a modular, distributed-parameter, watershed modeling system developed for use in evaluating the effects of climate...

Optimal Groundwater Reclamation with Captial Costs
A dynamic optimal control model for groundwater remediation was extended to incorporate treatment facility capital costs. Incorporation of the capital costs had the greatest impact on...

Procedures for Evaluating the Effects of Sedimentation on Flood Hazards in Urbanized Areas in the Southwestern U.S.
Urbanization of watersheds in the arid Southwestern U.S. creates problems for resource agencies and design engineers. Traditional analytical techniques that are generally applicable to...

Willingness-to-Pay for Alternative Shortage Probability Distributions
Mathematical programming is used to derive estimates of the willingness-to-pay of water service customers for improvements in water supply reliability. Reliability is represented as a...

Creation of a Modernized Land Information System for Milwaukee County
This paper provides a case study of the creation of a parcel based land information system for a large metropolitan county. The paper describes the structure of the system and the technical...

CAD-Based Intelligent Drawings: An Automated Quality Control Approach to Land Development
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is currently used within every discipline of civil engineering. Initially, CAD was employed solely as a drawing/drafting tool. Current CAD packages, in conjunction...

A GIS Foundation Example
A primary network of geodetic control monuments was developed with static GPS measurements. These monuments are tied to the existing Florida High Precision Network....

Consolidation of Ground Reclaimed by Inhomogeneous Clay
A large amount of prefabricated band drain was installed to improve the ground reclaimed by soft soils at the enlargement project of the Tokyo International Airport. By analyzing data...

Tolerable Deformations
Current criteria for tolerable movements of buildings, bridges and other structures are reviewed. Tolerable values of total and differential settlement, relative rotation, relative deflection...
