Empirical Methods in the Design of Ground-Water Quality Monitoring Strategies
Ground-water quality monitoring strategies are designed for environments ranging from the complex to the very simple. Complexity is characterized by socio-economic, public health, and...

Capital Cost Modelling for Micro-Hydro Appraisal
Empirical capital cost models for mini- and micro-hydro installations have not been validated with consistent site information. This paper reviews cost modelling techniques and describes...

Selection of Turbine Diameter and Speed for Francis, Kaplan, and Pelton Hydraulic Turbines
This paper is a continuation of work presented at WATERPOWER '83 and presents up-to-date information on the selection of diameter and speed for Francis, Kaplan, and Pelton...

Boundary Integral Equation Approach to Earthquake Induced Hydrodynamic Forces

Moments of Nonlinear Systems
In this paper the problem of writing the equations of moments of nonlinear systems excited by both external and parametric Gaussian white processes is re-examined. The classical K. Ito...

Comparison Between Linearization and Gaussian Closure
A variety of approximate solution techniques have been developed for analysis of nonlinear systems. The most widely used method has been equivalent linearization. Recently a general closure...

Stochastic Bifurcation of Nonlinear Parametric Systems
Parametrically excited systems with progressive restorings possess two different solutions: the trivial one and a stationary branching process. The second solution is physically existent...

Power Formula for Open-Channel Flow Resistance
This paper evaluates various power formulas for flow resistance in open channels. Unlike the logarithmic resistance equation that can be theoretically derived either from Prandtl's...

Riprap Design by Modified Safety Factor Method
The Safety Factor method for designing riprap is based upon straight forward physics combining rock properties and flow characteristics. M.A. Stevens developed the method by summing the...

Design Depths and Velocities on Alluvial Fans
Under Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guidelines, flood depths and velocities on alluvial fans are determined by considering the probability of a given point on the alluvial...

Computations of High-Velocity Flows on Alluvial Fans
The results of numerical models of supercritical flows on alluvial fans demonstrate the strong effect fan topography has on flow velocity and depth. Particularly important are transverse...

Mathematical Modeling of Delta Deposits and Retrogressive Erosion in Reservoirs
A hybrid computer model which simulates mainly delta deposition and retrogressive erosion in reservoirs is described. Basic equations that govern the flow and bed changes used in the model...

Finite Element Modeling in Free-Surface Hydromechanics
A finite element semi-discrete approximation is applied to the conservation law form of the two-dimensional, depth-averaged free-surface Navier-Stokes equations governing incompressible...

A Numerical Solution Technique for Incompressible Flow
Presented is a numerical solution technique which employs the explicit predictor-corrector scheme of R.W. MacCormack in solving the governing two-dimensional equations of motion on a staggered...

Dynamic Analysis of the Joint Dominated Beam
A method is presented herein to determine the vibration modes of the Joint Dominated Beam. An example of a cantilever beam is selected for this purpose. The truss type beam is analysed...

Progressive Impact Damage Assessment in Composite Pressure Vessels
At the present time, advanced composites have been widely accepted as engineering materials. Analysis techniques for the response of composite materials and structures to static loads...

Differential Gravitional Forces on Large Space Structures
Effects of the differential gravitational forces have been investigated simultaneously on the orbital motion, attitude motion, and axial deformation of a very large axially flexible space...
