Uptake of Contaminants by Overland Flow
A mathematical model is developed for the uptake of contaminants by overland flow. The model is based on the numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations coupled with a two-equation...

Multiquadrics in Engineering Modeling
The theory of multiquadrics (MQ) is advancing rapidly and it is usable today. When appropriate MQ can accurately interpolate for unknown values with less computational cost than Kriging....

An Optimal Parameter Estimation Model for Groundwater Resource Management
An optimal parameter estimation model is developed to identify the locations of wells, to determine pumping magnitude, and to calculate transmissivity coefficients in a confined aquifer...

Problems with Numerical Modeling of Gravel-Bed Rivers
Inherent to one-dimensional numerical models are the assumptions that hydraulic parameters can be assigned a characteristic average value, and that the flow is gradually varied so that...

Numerical Solution of Transient Closed-Conduit Flow Equations by the Method of Lines Along Characteristics
The method of characteristics has long been considered as a natural technique for solving transient closed-conduit problems. In this paper, by using the concept of the method of lines,...

Kenetic-theory Approach to the Nevado Del Ruiz 1985 Debris Flow
The Nevado del Ruiz 1985 debris flow was the worst disaster of its kind in this century, killing 22,000 people. By making an idealization of the debris flow material and the flow regime,...

Comparisons Between Experimental and Numerical Studies on Laminar Flow with Tracer Transport
In this paper we present an experimental and an accompanying numerical study of two- and three dimensional transient flow and tracer transport in complex flow systems at low Reynolds numbers....

Debris Flow Initiation and Termination in a Gully
A comprehensive simulation model predicting the debris-flow discharge hydrograph, solids concentration in it and the process of variation of the channel due to vertical as well as lateral...

Flow Computation and Energy Performance Analysis for Hydropower Components

Driven Then Pushed Minicone Tests in a Sand Chamber
For a general knowledge on the Standard Cone Penetrometer test and its uses the reader is referred to the work of Briaud and Miran (1991). For this study (Khalaf and Briaud, 1992) a smaller...

Piles for Marquette University Math Building
This paper presents a comparison of static pile capacity predictions using CPT cone resistance results with results of a test pile program and production pile driving. Pile capacity prediction...

Evaluation and Monitoring of Pile Performance Using Dynamic Measurements in Supporting Offshore Structures
The installation of offshore platforms into deeper waters and new environments is accompanied by an increasing uncertainty in the structure response, foundation design and performance....

Dynamic Interaction of Bridge and Moving Loading

Entropy-Based Velocity Distribution Model in Study of Distribution of Suspended-Sediment Concentration

Two-Dimensional Flow in Embankments

Wave-Current Interaction with a Large Structure
The effects of a current on the diffraction of regular waves around a three-dimensional body are examined by a time-domain method. The Froude number is assumed to be small so that the...

Second-Order Hydrodynamic Interactions Between a Pair of Vertical Cylinders in Irregular Waves
A complete second-order solution is given for the hydrodynamic forces on a pair of bottom-mounted, surface-piercing, vertical circular cylinders in bichromatic seas. The constant structural...

Static Wave Force Procedure for Platform Design
Since results from the Ocean Test Structure were presented at Civil Engineering in the Oceans IV in 1979, there have been numerous laboratory experiments and a few full-scale measurements...

Seismic Wave Propagation by Finite Differences on the Connection Machine
Seismic modeling represents a difficult numerical challenge and consumes a significant amount of CPU time on the largest available supercomputers. With the advent of massively-parallel...

The Control of Large Amplitude Liquid Sloshing with Moving Baffles
Numerical simulations of three-dimensional viscous liquid sloshing in rectangular containers were carried out using an improved volume of fluid technique in conjunction with the Navier-Stokes...
