Planning Models with Alternative Cooling Systems
Two approaches are presented for incorporating alternative cooling techologies into mathematical programming models for use in planning energy and water-resources systems. The first approach...

Wet Cooling Tower Backfitting Economics
Following enactment of legislation designed to reduce thermal discharge to the environment, the electric utility industry is faced with the prospect of backfitting their existing installations...

Effluent Mixing Zone in a Shallow River
A case study was made for a low momentum cooling water plume discharged from the shore into a very shallow river. The maximum width, maximum length, and enclosed surface area of a mixing...

Vibration of Towers Due to Galloping of Iced Cables
Wind tunnel experiments were conducted with stationary and vibrating models whose cross sections were similar to those of some ice formations observed. Aerodynamic data established for...

Angled Screens and Louvers for Diverting Fish at Power Plants
Angled screens and louvers have been experimentally evaluated and developed for diverting fish to bypass within cooling water intake structures. Louvers have been shown to be greater than...

Use of Digital Terrain Data for Project Estimating
A new method of preparing cost estimates for transmission lines has been developed. Elevation data extracted from magnetic tapes compiled by the Defence Mapping Agency (DMA) is used as...

Power Development and Water Allocation in Ohio River Basin
Widespread adoption of evaporative cooling towers will significantly increase water consumption by power plants over the coming decades. The analysis presented includes consideration of...

Development of Makeup Line Safe Operating Criteria

Treatment of Cooling Tower Blowdown
Cooling tower blowdown can contain zinc and chromates which must be removed prior to discharge into the environment. Treatment alternatives include chemical reduction, ion exchange, and...

EPA's Cooling Tower Plume Research
A comprehensive review is made of EPA's cooling tower plume research program with particular attention to plume modeling. The research began in 1969 with a modest effort to...

Wastewater Effluent Discharge to Cooling Lakes
A 1-yr field study was conducted in Lake Braunig near San Antonio, Tex., to estimate the water quality response to direct discharge of wastewater effluent. Field data indicate Lake Braunig...

Bibliography and Data on Cable-Stayed Bridges
In recent years, American bridge engineers have been increasingly interested in the design and construction of the cable stayed bridge. Undoubtedly, this type of bridge will have a significant...

Pasco-Kenneewick Bridge — The Longest Cable-Stayed Bridge in North America
This 2503-ft long structure, built in an earthquake zone, is only the second of its kind to be constructed in the U.S. It boasts a continuous concrete girder, supported from steel cables...

Finite Element Instability Analysis of Hyperbolic Cooling Towers

Optimum Structural Design by Dynamic Programming
Dynamic programming or recursive optimization is especially useful for multistage processes in which decisions taken at one stage do not effect the previous stages. Dynamic programming...

Fifty Years of Riveted, Bolted, and Welded Steel Construction
The last 50 yr have been a time of unprecedented structural developments with the advances in the structural fastening field playing an important part in these developments. Structural...

River and Cooling Water Temperature Fluctuations
Cooling water discharged from a power plant changes the fluctuating water temperature characteristics of a receiving river in a clearly detectable way. Daily and hourly water temperature...

Economic factors of Dry-Wet Cooling Towers
Comtemporary dry-wet design efforts and economic studies are reviewed and promising configurations are delineated. The basic accounting scheme and all relevant parameters necessary for...
