Modeling 3D Free Surface Flow in Compound Channels: A Validation Case Study
This paper presents the results of a validation study of a free-surface flow model. For the validation, experimental data collected in a compound open channel is used. This validation...

Modeling the Impact of Uncertainty in Spatial Variability of Estuarine Boundary Conditions
Multi-dimensional numerical estuarine models that consider baroclinic forcing require the specification of both the water surface and the water density (salinity and temperature) at the...

A New Model of California's SWP/CVP Systems
A water allocation reservoir simulation model is combined with a ground water-surface water simulation model resulting in an integrated model for use in water resource planning studies...

Modeling of Surface Water Pumps in TVA Reservoirs
This paper describes the numerical simulation of surface water pump perforniance at Cherokee and Douglas Dams. The modeling objective was to determine the surface water pump initial velocities...

Flood Damage Estimates Using GIS Spatial Analysis
The catastrophic flooding in the midwest during the Summer of 1993 and in California in the Spring of 1995 resulted in flood damage estimates in the hundreds of millions to billions of...

Eastern San Joaquin County Groundwater Resource Planning Model Development and Calibration
An Integrated Groundwater Surface Water Model (IGSM) has been developed for the Eastern San Joaquin County in the Central Valley of California to evaluate the future water resources management...

Eastern San Joaquin County Groundwater Resource Planning Alternative Analysis
An Integrated Groundwater and Surface Water Model (IGSM) has been developed and calibrated for eastern San Joaquin County in the Central Valley of California to evaluate future water resources...

The Direction of the Point Source Program
The NPDES permit programs operate under the concept of providing for a cleaner environment by restricting the release of pollutants. Over 500,000 sources are now subject to regulation...

The Effects of Water Surface Profiles on Manning's Roughness Coefficient
The Manning Equation has wide application in engineering practice. Nonetheless, certain aspects of it are still not widely understood. Often, engineers deduce the value of Manning's...

The Use of an Equivalent Porosity Method to Model Flow in Marshes
Two dimensional modeling of marshes under unsteady flow conditions often involves description of sections that alternately wet and dry. The equivalent porosity method (King and Roig, 1988;...

Los Angeles County Department of Public Works Storm Water Quality Assessments, Los Angeles, California
This study included a general assessment of the surface water quality conditions within the Los Angeles County area by examination of the surface water quality data collected by LACDPW...

Water Resources Planning for the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Montana
Water resources planning in Indian Country has produced varied results. On the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes are using an integrated approach to managing...

Stochastic Determination of Wave Heights for Flood Control Channels
Physical model data for subcritical and supercritical flow has been collected and analyzed to determine a statistically-based relationship for wave runup heights in a trapezoidal channel....

A Knowledge Based System for the Design of Open Channels
The design of open channel facilities often calls for evaluation of a unique set of physical conditions which do not lend themselves to standard designs and textbook solutions. Consequently,...

Analyzing Water Balances and Ranking Maryland's Watersheds Related to Growth, Development and Loss of Habitat
One hundred thirty three watersheds comprising the entire state were analyzed for surface and ground water balance. Census population figures (1990) were allocated to the watersheds. Population...

Implicit Integration Procedures and Consistent Tangent Operators for Bounding Surface Plasticity Models

Surface Response of a Cracked Layered Half-space Subjected to an Antiplane Impact

When Toxics Meet Metal
Zero-valent iron is an emerging remediation technology that transforms chlorinated solvents to harmless substances. Engineers and researchers have been studying the process for about five...
