A Computer-Controlled, Precision Pressure Standard
The operating principles as well as the technical aspects of the implementation of a precision pressure standard are presented here. The instrument can have dual use: either as a pressure...

3D model verification for a groyne and harbor experiment
A discussion of 3D model verification and calibration based on measurements in a flume is carried out for different test cases (groyne, harbor). The measurement data is available for public...

Measuring Air Concentration in Flowing Air-Water Mixtures
This paper describes the use of an electrical conductivity probe to determine aeration of a plunge pool by an overfall nappe. The probe was calibrated using an apparatus designed to provide...

A Calibration Process for Automatic Incident Detection Algorithms
This paper describes the development of a general method for the calibration of Automatic Incident Detection algorithms. A simple structure of freeway traffic data adapted to this process...

Seismic Analysis of Meloland Road Overcrossing Using Calibrated Structural and Foundation Models
A detailed seismic analysis of the Meloland Road Overcrossing is being implemented to study the response of this bridge during the 1979 Imperial Valley Earthquake. This analysis is based...

Finnsjon Site (Sweden)—Interpretation of Interference Tests

Automatic Calibration of 3D Finite Differences Model Parameters— Application to the Finnsjon Site (Sweden)
Calibration of 3D finite difference model parameters is usually carried out using a noon-automatic 'manual' procedure until observed heads, for instance, are simulated with a sufficient...

Experimental Studies to Calibrate Unsaturated Flow Models
Work is described that has been designed to serve as a laboratory calibration of numerical models for unsaturated flow studies. The experiment size is configured large enough that the...

Graphics User Interface for Water Quality Model Calibration
The UC Davis Water Resources Modeling Group developed a unique Graphical Use Interface (GUI) in the Microsoft Windows environment to facilitate use of the stream mode QUAL2E for the Russian...

Intercity Travel Demand Forecasting for the Windsor-Quebec City Corridor
Travel demand forecasts were required for the 600-mile-long Quebec City - Windsor Canada Corridor to test alternative rail systems including high speed rail. The approach involved application...

Scaling Laws of Gravity Driven Fingering During Organic Liquid Infiltration
Wetting front instability can occur during vertical infiltration of a liquid into porous media, particularly when a fine soil layer is overlying a coarse layer. The result of this instability...

Lower Missouri River Water Quality Model for Evaluating Flow Alterations
A modified version of the US Environmental Protection Agency's (USEPA) one-dimensional (longitudinal) stream water quality model, QUAL2E, was applied to the lower Missouri River to evaluate...

Mean Areal Precipitation Estimation Using Radar
The accuracy of mean areal total storm precipitation (MAP) over small urban basins (30-100 km2) in the Denver, CO metro region was examined using...

Design Flow Estimates for Catchments in El Dorado County, CA
A hydrologic model consisting of a rainfall-runoff model and a set of design storms is proposed for design flow calculation in El Dorado County, California. The rainfall-runoff model will...

Global Search Technique to Calibrate Rainfall Runoff Models
The calibration of rainfall-runoff models in hydrology has not yet reached a satisfactory solution, using either manual or automatic procedures. This paper introduces a simple conceptual...

FLUME 3.0: A Computer Program for Designing Flumes and Weirs
Long-throated flumes and broad-crested weirs are becoming the preferred measuring devices for use in irrigation canals. A computer program for calibrating these flumes and weirs has been...

Updating Utah's Crop Water Use Estimates
Crop water use was estimated at National Weather Service stations throughout Utah for the 1961-1990 normal period. Daily weather data (air temperature, solar radiation, humidity, wind...

The ASCE Neutron Probe Calibration Study: Overview
A workshop was held at Logan, Utah to gather field information on neutron probe calibration and operation. Several techniques and instruments were compared. This paper serves to establish...

Soil Bulk Density Sampling for Neutron Gauge Calibration
The ASCE Task Committee on Neutron Gauge Calibration met in Logan, Utah in July 1992 to investigate the various methods of soil sampling, installation of access tubes, effect of various...

Measuring Soil Bulk Density Profiles with a Single Probe Gamma Density Gauge
Calibrating neutron depth gauges for measuring soil water content profiles requires soil bulk density data. In this study, the feasibility of using a single probe gamma density gauge to...
