Meteorological Impacts on Urban Sulfate Levels
Sulfate levels in Boston, Mass. demonstrated a high correlation with meteorological parameters indicative of long-range transport of aerosols. Two-hour average samples of total sulfate...

Dynamic Response to Nonstationary Nonwhite Excitation
The root mean square responses of linear multidegrees-of-freedom system to nonstationary, nonwhite random excitation are computed analytically using the state space formulation. Each modal...

Discussion of "Spurious Correlation in Dimensional Analysis" (February 1980)

Spurious Correlation in Dimensional Analysis
Dimensional analysis often leads to the appearance of common or highly correlated variables in the independent and dependent parameters. A new quantitative measure of spurious correlation,...

Failure Mode Correlation in Weakest-Link Systems
An approximate method for the analysis of Weakest-Link systems is presented. Using the Normal and Extremal Distributions, a study of the effect of failure mode correlation on systems of...

Mean Air Concentration of Self-Aerated Flows
The purpose of this technical note is to develop a correlation between the mean air concentration and the most significant flow parameters in the fully aerated zone. Dimensional analysis...

Development Planning and Scheduling Model
A planning and monitoring model oriented to new developments or city improvements has been developed. A step-by-step example for preparing the model, coding the activities, and establishing...

Disaggregation of Streamflow Volumes
A disaggregation model, which differs from those developed by Valencia and Schaake (VS) and Mejia and Rousselle (MR) (referred to as the HB model), was developed specifically to preserve...

Liquefaction Potential: Science Versus Practice
Laboratory research and methods of analysis have been developed in the last decade for evaluation of liquefaction potential of saturated sands. The procedures have been widely adopted...

Buoyant Jet Discharges into Finite Ambient Waters
The paper presents the results of an experimental study regarding the effect of the lateral dimension of the receiving water on the spreading, mixing, and temperature decay of a horizontal...

Pressures on Curtain Wall with External Mullions
Many tall buildings have curtain walls with external mullions as their most prominent feature. The model tests reported here indicate in which regions of such walls the pressure distributions...

Dividing-Flow Manifolds with Square-Edged Laterals
A method of analysis for dividing-flow junction losses based on correlation of numerous data sets is presented. Illustrative examples are given to describe the use of the analytical procedure...

Transfer Coefficients in Stratified Channel Flow
Empirical equations based on laboratory data were developed to predict the turbulent momentum and solute transfer coefficients in stratified open channel flows. In flows where the primary...

Correlation of Blood Rheology in Micro- and Macro-Circulation

Model-Prototype Reliability Correlations in Design of Precast Concrete Structures

Further Correlation of Scott Spectra with Ocean Wave Data
In a recent paper, Dattatri compared the Scott spectrum with the energy spectrum obtained from the waves recorded off the west cost of India. They showed good correlation of the data with...

Space Truss Design in Inelastic Range
The purpose of the present work is to show the correlation between simple nonlinear theoretical analysis and two experimental results derived from ultimate load truss tests. From this...

Generation of Ungaged Streamflow Data
A least-squares model for estimating monthly and daily mean streamflow data at ungaged sites has been developed. The predictor variables are streamflow data recorded at nearby hydrometric...

Structural Safety Indices for Repeated Loads
Approximations for the distribution functions of the extremes in a number of repetitions of a random variable are developed based on the crossing approach. Results are obtained for independent...
