Variation of Froude Number with Discharge for Large-Gradient Streams
Under chemical-control conditions, the Froude number (f) for a cross-section can be approximated as a function of the ratio R2/ 3/d...

Prediction of Gravel Transport Using Parker's Algorithm
This paper demonstrates that sediment discharge in gravel streams can be reasonably estimated by calibrating the Parker and Klingeman procedure. This paper also identifies the need for...

Differentiation of Debris-Flow and Flash-Flood Deposits: Implications for Paleoflood Investigations
Debris flows and flash floods are common geomorphic processes in the Colorado Rocky Mountain Front Range and foothills. Usually, debris flows and flash floods are associated with excess...

Tensile Terminal
Few can miss a fabric roof that covers a 1.45 million sq ft area. The one covering the Denver International Airport's Landside Terminal complex (reportedly the nation's...

Designing Reinforced Rock
The reinforced rock arch design method has been used to stabilize coal mine excavations for 40 years, but so far has been applied to only a few tunnels. The use of rock reinforcement develops...

Simulation of Reservoir Operation Using Smart Reservoirs

Extraction of Potable Water from Urine for Space Applications
A regenerative technology capable of managing water and wastewater on-board long-term manned space platforms is essential if the Bush Administration's Space Exploration Initiative (SEI)...

A Pilot Sounding Rocket Project Utilizing Student Labor
Space science experiments have been accomplished by suborbital, sounding rockets for over forty years. This inexpensive, reliable, and unique launch platform provides the basis of a state-wide...

Fine Tuning the Airfield: The New Denver International Airport
This paper discusses airfield layout considerations that have been incorporated into the design of the new Denver International Airport (DIA). These concepts include some unique provisions...

Aircraft Noise Monitoring at Denver International Airport
This paper describes design of the noise monitoring system for Denver International Airport. When the airport opens in 1993, the system must monitor compliance with two standards established...

City and County of Denver Approach to Management Requirements
Construction of large infrastructure projects has become increasingly rare since the 1960's. In fact, America has not built a new airport since 1974. While sparse funding is certainly...
