Case Study of an Offshore Horizontal Boring
A pipeline system was needed to transport natural gas from a discovery in Mobile Block 823 to Mobil's existing system inside Mobile Bay. Sand Island, a small barrier island off Dauphin...

Design Considerations for Small Artificial Islands in Franks Tract, California
Small, artificially-created islands may provide significant recreation and habitat benefits. Costs, however, can also be high. The initial dollar cost of creating an artificial island,...

New Seoul Metropolitan Airport
The New Seoul Metropolitan Airport (NSMA), to be built on a man-made island near Seoul, Korea, will have access to the city by bridge, rail, and dedicated freeway. When completed, NSMA...

Access Control to Projects Via Raised Islands
When addressing driveway maneuvers at a new development, alleged ailments Must be quantified before drafting a cure. If a problem is anticipated, alternative solutions should be investigated,...

Application of a Boundary Fitted Coordinate Mass Transport Model
A three-dimensional, boundary fitted coordinate, finite difference, mass transport model was applied to the Providence River in Upper Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. The governing advection-diffusion...

Simulation of Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamics in Long Island Sound: Seasonal Timescale
The Mellor-Blumberg three-dimensional hydrodynamic model, as modified by National Ocean Service (NOS) of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for application to Long...

Simulation of Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamics in Long Island Sound: Annual Timescales
The Mellor-Blumberg three-dimensional hydrodynamic model in application to Long Island Sound includes time varying water level residual, sea surface temperature, river inflow, and wind...

A Finite Element Model for Three-Dimensional Flows Along the West Coast of Vancouver Island
Extensive salinity and temperature measurements taken during June 1984 are used to calculate a three-dimensional density field for the west coast of Vancouver Island. Combining this field...

Demand Management Strategies for Providence Water Supply Board
The Providence water supply is the largest in Rhode Island, and the demands placed upon it continue to increase with the growth of the area as other systems turn to it as a preferred source...

Bodkin Island Wetland Restoration Project Design
Bodkin Island in the Chesapeake Bay will be increased by 2 hectares through placement of dredged material to create nesting and brood habitat for black ducks. The enlarged island will...

Calibration and Validation of the Storm Water Management Model to the Providence Area Combined Sewer System
This paper exemplifies the calibration and validation of the EPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) to one drainage area within the Providence (RI) area combined sewer overflow system....

Spectral and Statistical Characteristics of Wind Waves Off Canary Islands
Wave climate around Canary Islands is studied by means of statistical and spectral techniques. Maximum Entropy Method is used for obtaining the spectral density function. Autocorrelation...

A Two-Dimensional Surface Drift Model for River Ice
A two-dimensional surface drift model for river ice with low ice discharge conditions is presented. The model is applied to the Grass Island Pool area of the Niagara River and compared...

Radar Monitoring of Ice on the Upper Niagara River
A standard marine radar was used during the winter of 1987-88 to evaluate its potential to monitor the presence and movement of ice in the Grass Island Pool area of the upper Niagara River....

Wind Power in Antarctica—Case Histories of the North Wind HR3 Wind Turbine
The combination of extreme weather conditons and remoteness of the Antarctic sites makes them even better suited for wind turbine installations since the alternative power sources are...

Field Investigation for Leachate Flow in a Landfill
Field investigation for leachate flow was done for the Fresh Kills landfill at Staten Island, New York. The leachate monitoring program included data collection from the field for a six...

A Simulation to Noise Barrier
The problem related to noise barrier is simulated by a still, single frequency, three dimensional sound source located within two parallel screens with rigid back walls. The solution of...

Lessons Learned by a Wind Engineer
Surface wind speeds during the passage of Hurricane Hugo through the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are described. Although damage to the affected areas was extensive, an assessment...

Hugo - Lessons Learned
This paper is based on ground surveys along the South Carolina coast from Edisto Island north to Myrtle Beach. It also includes ground surveys as far inland as Charlotte, North Carolina....
