Operational Aspects of Warning
Uzbekistan is referred to as the region where the most dangerous natural phenomena are: mudfloods, floods, and avalanches. During the last decades the areas of their manifestation were...

Pollutant Transport Across Porous Stream Beds
The presence of porous streambeds generates a significant interaction between the main stream flow above it and the flow through the porous sub-stratum. This coupling affects both flows,...

At-A-Station Temporal Variations in Flow under Drought and Flood Conditions and Associated Sediment Problems
The way flow variations take place with time under drought and flood conditions, in comparison with normal flow condition, has been investigated along with the related sediment transport...

Impacts due to Density Current Deposition in Reservoirs
Different flow pafterns of density currents in reservoirs are discussed. In delta region, lateral density currents from non-stratified flow in the main channel occurs resulting in floodplain...

Simulation of Channel Changes Induced by a Reservoir
A fluvial study was made for potential stream channel changes induced by a reservoir. It is generally recognized that a reservoir induces sediment deposition along the upstream channel...

Calibration of Sediment Transport Model for the Upper End of Elephant Butte Reservoir
Elephant Butte Reservoir is located about 125 miles north of El Paso, Texas on the Rio Grande. The reservoir is approximately 35 miles long with a narrow neck, called the Narrows, about...

Interdisciplinary Research of Mountainous Areas: Past, Present, and Future
In the past few years, there has been a growing recognition internationally, of a need to better understand hydrometeorologic, hydraulic, sedimentologic, geomorphic processes in gravel-,...

Flash Floods and Their Control in the Indian Arid Zone
Flash floods are common hydrologic phenomena in the arid north west India. Drainage basins of high relief, a large percentage of surficial bed rock, sparse vegetation, and shallow soils...

Selection of Sediment Transport Relations Part III: Numerical Ranking of Sediment Transport Relations
The emphasis of this paper is the methodology for the selection of sediment transport relations and is applicable for analysis of any sediment transport relation. However, to illustrate...

Field Measurements of Streambed Scour at Bridge Piers in Ohio
Field measurements made from 1989 to 1994 were evaluated to characterize pier scour at 21 bridge sites in Ohio. Pier scour was observed at sites in 45 of 47 real-time scour measurements....

How to Manage Floodwaves in the Dutch Meuse: Future Measures to Reduce the Inconvenience of Inundations
This study showed that in the Gravelmeuse the combination of nature development and reducing of inundation inconvenience is possible. In the framework of the obliged supply of a fixed...

Channel Scour Protection at Roadway Crossings
There are several forms of channel scour which may damage a bridge or culvert crossing over a natural or improved channel. Typical forms of scour include general degradation, local scour...

Synchronized Measurements of Bed-Shear Stress and Flow Velocity in Open Channels with Simulated Vegetation
Synchronized measurements of shear stresses at the bed and velocities both within and above a simulated plant canopy in an open-channel flow are presented. Traditional (hot-film sensors)...

Propeller Wash Induced Erosion at Quay Walls
The characteristics are examined of the sea bed erosion produced by the scouring action of a ship's propeller wash acting against a quay wall. The rate of development of erosion...

Fish Passage Pool Bedding Analysis
Anadromous fish passages, stream dynamics and the artifical channel segmented into a natural stream should fttnction seamlessly. This paper intends to develop reasonable procedures a designer...

Scour Protection in Bottomless Culverts
This paper will describe the relative severity of scour anticipated to occur at bottomless culverts and will provide some design guidance for scour protection based on research referenced...

Study of Hydraulic Jump Lengths on Inclined Channel Beds
A hydraulic jump is generally used to dissipate kinetic energy of flow to protect man-made structures such as spillways, drop structures, and outlet works. It serves as a perfect location...

Laboratory Evaluation of a Conductivity Probe for Scour Monitoring
Laboratory tests were used to evaluate the ability of conductivity sensors to measure streambed elevation. Tests were completed on a 2.1-m probe with a resolution of about 8 cm that was...
