Expert Systems in Reservoir Management and Planning
Recent advances in artificial intelligence techniques have created a mechanism for incorporating empirical knowledge into algorithmic reservoir planning and management models. The authors'...

Optimizing Drain Spacing and Depth Using Steady State Equations
A method is developed for minimizing the total cost of establishing relief drains by choosing appropriate depth and spacing of the drains. Solution graphs are presented for a wide range...

Explicit Integration of Boundary Integral Equations in the Frequency Domain for Wave Scattering Problems
The goals of this article are: (1) to present an efficient method for the integration of the boundary integral equations for wave scattering problems and (2) to apply this method to the...

A Study on Non-Conforming Boundary Elements in Elastomechanics
This work is a critical study on the performance of non-conforming boundary elements in three-dimensional elastomechanics. The pervasive way of implementing the boundary element method...

Ice Load Prediction with the Use of a Rate-Dependent Anisotropic Constitutive Law
Man-made structures built in arctic offshore areas are subject to ice loads. Traditional methods for estimating ice loads rely on an indentation factor from rigid-plasticity, an empirical...

Application of Phosphorus Models to New Mexico Reservoirs
Many empirical, mass-balance phosphorus models have been developed and tested on northern, temperature lakes and previously published. Fourteen of those published models were tested on...

Effect of Surge Cycle Ratio and Cycle Time on Infiltration
A recirculating furrow infiltrometer was used to simulate surge flow irrigation for various cycle times and cycle ratios. The data collected was used to evaluate two empirical surge flow...

Effect of Wetted Perimeter on Infiltration in Furrows
Five empirical infiltration equations were evaluated using data from blocked infiltrometer tests with wetted perimeter values ranging from 28 to 49 cm. The results indicate that the Kostiakov...

Scheduling in Manually Controlled Canal Irrigation Delivery Systems
The effects of canal transients on scheduling water delivery to an irrigated area are described using a linearized form of flow equation obtained from a zero-inertia momentum equation...

Beach Erosion Mechanics
Beach erosion along the coasts affects economic, political and conservation conditions. This paper defines the mechanics of the Coriolis Effect, caused by earth spin, along with storm...

Characterization of Soil Arching Above Buried Conduits
Conventional ways of assessing the effects of soil arching over buried conduits were examined by means of finite element analyses. It was found that neither of the conventional soil arching...

Numerical Modelling of Bed Evolution in Braided Channel Systems
The overall modelling approach adopted is based on an assumption of quasi-steady flow. The numerical algorithm is based on a split-operator approach, in which the flow energy equation,...
