Denver International Airport Tensile Roof Case Study: The Fabrication and Construction Process

Evaluating Multi-Purpose Reservoir Operations Using Fuzzy Dynamic Programming
The study described in this paper was designed to assess the feasibility of reservoir operators and water users defining membership functions for evaluating multiple objectives and to...

Using GIS to Develop 2-D Hydraulic Models
As communities along rivers and streams continue to develop, the demand for more accurate floodplain analysis and flood warning will also increase. Computer systems continue to develop...

Design and Implementation of an Optimal Real-Time Hydropower Generation Scheduling System for the Lower Colorado River in Texas
The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) of Texas supplies water and electric power to over 800,000 persons in Central Texas. A real-time decision support system is being developed and...

Changing Dam Operating Criteria to Accommodate Aquatic Biological Diversity
The Colorado squawfish, bonytail chub, humpback chub, and razorback sucker, now threatened with extinction, were once the dominant fishes in the river. Recovering these native species...

Colorado River Decision Support System
Colorado is developing its own tools, such as the Colorado River Decision Support System (CRDSS), to evaluate alternative strategies and establish an informed and factual position regarding...

Joint Pond-Wetland System Performance in Colorado
The Shop Creek retention pond and follow-up wetlands were constructed in 1989, by the City of Aurora, Colorado, and the Cherry Creek Basin Water Quality Authority to enhance urban storm...

Object-oriented Model of Colorado River Salinity
A salt balance is incorporated into an object-oriented river-basin model and applied to the Colorado River. The model simulates seasonal variations in the basin's water balance and employs...

Prediction of Gravel Bedload with SAM
Bedload measurements for Little Beaver Creek in Colorado were used to test the sediment transport functions included in SAM. The test results showed that Toffaleti predicts total bedload...

A Nested-Model Approach to Investigate Climate Change
Determination of the spatial and temporal distribution of precipitation in mountainous regions is critical for assessing the effects of climate variability on water resources in these...

Atmospheric Circulation and Snowpack in the Gunnison River Basin
Winter mean 700-millibar height anomalies over the eastern North Pacific Ocean and the western United States are related to variability in snowpack accumulations measured on or about April...
