Evaluation of Runoff Prediction Using Synthetic Rainfall and CREAMS
Of all the climatological data, rainfall is the variable to which a watershed responds most significantly. The amount and sequence of occurrence of rainfall are most important in the prediction...

Surface Erosion Control on Roads in Granitic Soils
The impact of forest road construction on water quality and fish habitat is a serious problem for engineers, hydrologists, and foresters. Control of surface erosion is an important and...

Forestation in Northeastern Brazil and Its Influence on Quantity and Quality of Runoff
A study is being conducted in Northeastern Brazil, at Cruzeta, in the Semi-Arid Tropic, to estimate runoff and soil displacement caused by precipitation and the influence of vegetation...

Techniques of Negotiation
Three primary qualities are necessary for effective negotiation: knowledge, attitude, and skill. The author's firm has successfully used a negotiating team approach. This...

The SRI Technique for Flood Frequency Analysis
This paper presents a technique for flood flow frequency analysis called the Storm Response Index (SRI), and a case study using the technique. The SRI method is based on the development...

Tidal Flooding Study for a Seattle Watershed
The paper reports on a study to develop a correlation between rainfall volumes and tidal storm surges based on recorded rainfall and tide data. This correlation was used to establish tidal...

Real-Time Flood Forecasting on Small Computers
A real-time, rainfall-runoff, flood forecast model, developed by the Corps of Engineers Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC), was applied to two of tributary basins in the Ohio River System....

Numerical Models for Two-Dimensional Surface Runoff
Numerical models for surface runoff in watersheds having two-dimensional or horizontally varying topography are presented. Two finite element methodologies, a standard Galerkin and a streamline...

Time and Space Resolution for Continuous, Dynamic Storm and Runoff Model Studies
Continuous modelling correctly reproduces start-up values of storages and loss rates and statistics for properties of hydrographs. Kinematics of storms should be considered. The effects...

A Quick Micro-Computer Urban Runoff Model
The Penn State Direct Hydrograph Model PSDH described in this paper uses watershed and rainfall data to generate a synthetic unit hydrograph and a runoff hydrograph, both gamma-distributed....

The Resident Engineer—Staffing the Team
One of the initial actions a Resident Engineer (RE) must grapple with each time he begins a new construction project is how to staff his construction team. The balancing of the type and...

Structural Vibrations Associated with Large Incubation Tanks
It is the purpose of this paper to describe the format of an investigation wherein the train of evidence led from an assumption of a strictly mechanical cause to an actual cause that was...

Development of Flood Peak Regression Equatins for Small Watersheds in Southwest Florida
Hydrologic investigations were performed on the Belle Meade-Royal Palm Hammock area in Collier County, Florida. The study area, encompassing approximately 79 square miles (205 km**2),...

Suspended Sediment Transport from Nonpoint Sources
Precipitation, runoff, and suspended sediment concentration data were collected in a predominantly agricultural watershed in southwestern Illinois from January 1982 through October 1984....

The Impact of Demand-Side Management on Load Growth: Some Tentative Results
Demand-Side Management (DSM) programs including load management, conservation and strategic load growth are being implemented by a very large number of utilities for the mutual benefit...
