Ice Buildup in Tailing Basins

Determining River Stages with Consideration of Backwater Effects
In a recent hydraulic investigation on the Cache River basin, the stages of the Mississippi River at the Beechridge station were found to be necessary downstream boundary conditions for...

1-D and 2-D Analysis of Flood Plain Encroachment
The paper reports on a study into the effects of a local encroachment in a broad regular flood plain. The results of a one-dimensional analysis were compared with the results of an equivalent...

Advances in Flood Plain Management Techniques

Upper Yellow River Projects and Longyangxia Station
The river stretch from Longyangxia to Qingtongxia, with a head drop of 1,465 m in a distance of 1,023 km (including backwater length of the Longyangxia Reservoir) is the focus of this...

Sedimentation Problems of the Illinois River Valley
Natural and manmade factors have drastically changed the character of the river and resulted in the accelerated deposition of sediments all along the entire river valley. The Illinois...

Effects of Land Subsidence on Flood Profiles
In this study, the effects of land subsidence on water-surface elevation and depth profiles during flood conditions were investigated for a large, hypothetical, slope-controlled stream....

Eight Open Channel Flow Programs for the Apple IIe Microcomputer
The purpose of this paper is to present eight programs in hydraulics and hydrology suitable for running on the Apple IIe and Apple IIc microcomputers. The programs are: Flood 1, Flood...

Analysis of Partially Filled Circular Storm Sewers
The classic design approach uses Manning's formula. Comparisons between analytical results obtained in this manner and the many available experimental results indicate substantial...

Mt. St. Helens Impact on Cowlitz River Sedimentation

Analysis of the Variation of River Stage in the Freezing Season for Some Cases on the Yellow River

Two-Dimensional Analysis of Bridge Backwater

Analysis of Alternatives for Reducing Bridge Backwater

Modeling Scour, Backwater and Debris at Bridges

Varied Flow Functions for Circular Channels
Hydraulic engineers are often required to compute backwater curves and the existing methods cannot be applied accurately to closed conduits as the flow approaches the crown. This paper...

Hydraulic Representation of Flow Cross Sections
Herein, the writers will show that the conveyance of the channel section calculated by multiple section representations is never less than that by a single section representation. Also,...

Finite Element Model for Backwater Computation

Two-Dimensional Analysis of Backwater at Bridges
A two-space dimensional mathematical model of computing steady flow distributions and water levels near contractions in natural waterways (e.g., highway bridges) is developed. The two-dimensional...

Comparison of Bridge Backwater Relations
A previously developed subcritical (submerged) flow analysis for open channel constrictions has been shown to be generally applicable to computing backwater due to bridges, whether the...

Computing Backwater at Open Channel Constrictions
A previously developed subcritical (submerged) flow analysis for open channel constrictions has been modified to provide an improved technique for computing the backwater resulting from...
