Turbine Efficiency Monitoring Utilizing Ultrasonic Flowrate Measurement
On-line turbine efficiency measurement can be achieved by ultrasonic flowrate measurement and state-of-the-art data acquisition techniques. A field performance test program conducted at...

Accelerated Life Testing of Generator Coils
This paper presents a step-by-step procedure for doing a 400 hour, 60 Hz, 90 degree C accelerated life test on generator coils. Test procedure is as follows: 1. Initial coil examination...

Water Distribution Network Calibration Considering Multiple Loading Conditions
Through time a water distribution network's carrying capacity is reduced as material collects on pipe walls. The impact varies with each pipe in the system and occurs at an...

Hydrologic and Hydraulic Calibration—A Case Study (a)
The Addison Creek watershed is in Cook and DuPage Counties just west of Chicago, Illinois. Because the watershed has a history of major flooding, eight major stormwater and flood control...

A Front End Expert System for the Calibration of SWMM Runoff Block
An expert system is discussed which acts as a front end to the Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) for the purpose of preparation of data input and parameter selection. The structure of...

Visual Estimates of Flume and Weir Operating Conditions
Laboratory studies were conducted on a rectangular broad-crested weir to determine the effects of entrance and exit conditions on the prediction of discharge and required energy loss....

Verification/Calibration of a Thermal Discharge Model

Surface Water Pumps: Model-Prototype Calibration

Prototype Instrumentation for Pressure Fluctuations

Calibration of Water-Velocity Meters
The U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior, as part of its responsibility to appraise the quantity of water resources in the United States, maintains facilities for the calibration...

Use of the Penman Equation in Inter-Mountain Valleys
H.L. Penman equation as well as the J.L. Monteith version of this equation were compared under the advective conditions of the Grand Valley of Colorado. The wind function in the general...

Calibration of Earthquake Damage Probability Matrices

On the Selection of Sediment Transport Equations
Existing sediment transport relationships have been calibrated under a certain range of experimental conditions which can be described by the dimensionless grain size, the mobility number,...

Calibration of an Evapotranspiration Model Using Eddy Correlation Methods
An evapotranspiration (ET) prediction model was developed by calibrating the H. L. Penman equation for an alfalfa reference crop in the southwestern Oklahoma region. Evaporative flux for...

Crop Yield Models Adapted to Irrigation Scheduling Programs
A crop yield model (CRPSM) was adapted to match the data obtained with typical irrigation scheduling programs. Daily soil water content was calculated from weather data, crop growth stage...

Calibration of a Bridge Rating Formula for Overload Permits
This paper proposes a method to calibrate a reliability based load and resistance factor design (LRFD) permit evaluation formulation that will account for the overloaded truck's...

Optimization of Complex Hydrologic Models Using Random Search Methods
The primary objective of automated calibration of complex conceptual hydrologic simulation models is to find the global optimum of a specified response surface. While direct search techniques...

Automatic Calibration of Conceptual Rainfall-Runoff Models
An automatic calibration strategy applied to land and channel components of the National Weather Service River Forecast System is outlined. Aspects discussed include the objective function...
