Neutron Physics Considerations in Moisture Probe Design
Neutron physics can be used to characterize most of the know behavior of neutrons in the soil. Scattering, absorption and slowing down are the principal processes affecting moisture probe...

Factors Affecting Neutron Gauge Calibration
Neutron gauge characteristics and soil chemistry affect gauge calibration. External factors also influence gauge calibration and should be considered in the calibration procedure. Gauge...

Access Tube Characteristics and Neutron Meter Calibration
Neutron meter calibration was found to be influenced by material type, thickness and size of access tube. Meter counts were decreased by an average of 15% for a 20% increase in tube diameter...

Relationship of Soil Type and Chemicals to the Calibration of Neutron Meters
Theory of neutron scattering and moderation in matter explains many of the characteristics of calibration curves of neutron moisture probes. Characteristics include effect of atomic species...

Practical Approaches Used in Neutron Meter Moisture Monitoring
This paper describes a practical, appropriate methodology for utilizing neutron meter soil moisture measurements to provide irrigation management information to farmers. A neutron meter...

Calibration of Tensiometers and Gypsum Blocks Using Soil Moisture Content
The common tensiometer and gypsum block used for irrigation scheduling are evaluated using gravimetric soil moisture measurements. The results indicate several difficulties with the tensiometer...

A Hydrologic Model for Designing Border Irrigation
A hydrologic model was developed and evaluated using experimental data from two irrigation tests. First, the model was calibrated using the experimental data of one irrigation test, after-that...

Synthetic Calibration of a Rainfall-Runoff Model
A method for synthetically calibrating storm-mode parameters for the U.S. Geological Survey's Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System is described. Synthetic calibration is accomplished...

Limitation to Standard Parshall Flume Calibrations
Parshall flumes are widely used for metering open channel flows. An inspection of the original study which developed the rating equations indicates that the flumes were not tested for...

Simple Water Measuring Device for On Farm Irrigation Evaluation
Laboratory experiments were conducted for the calibration of three flumes of different sizes. The logarithmic transformation in linear regression yielded excellent results for the stage-discharge...

Field Calibration of Neutron Gauges: SCS Method
Field calibration of neutron gauges is easy and requires very little time under normal circumstances. Special soil sampling equipment is required that can be fabricated by most machine...

Groundwater Modeling of the Tustin/Irvine Basin
This paper describes the results of groundwater modeling in the Tustin/Irvine basin situated in the southeastern portion of the Tustin plain, which is the the southern extension of the...

LRFD for Engineered Wood Construction: Calibration to Current Design
The structural design code for engineered wood construction is evolving to a limit state design basis in which the safety checks are derived from the underlying probability distributions...

Prediction of Overland Phosphorus Transport Using a Phosphorus Enrichment Ratio
The Guelph model to evaluate the effects of Agricultural Management Systems on Erosion, Sedimentation, and Phosphorus yield (GAMESP) of Rousseau et al. was used to calibrate the phosphorus...

Development, Calibration and Application of Runoff Forecasting Models for the Allegheny River Basin
The computer program HEC1F, developed by the Corps of Engineers' Hydrologic Engineering Center, performs runoff forecasting. The focus of this paper is on application of HEC1F...

Calibration of a Movable Bed River Model
This paper discusses the calibration procedures used for a model study of three miles (5km) of the Arkansas River. A hydro-power station will be added to an existing Corps of Engineers...

Calibrating a 2-D Fate and Transport Model of Watts Bar Reservoir
A branched two-dimensional water quality model has been developed and tested for the Watts Bar Reservoir, including the Clinch River and Emory River embayments. The general stratified...
