Tornado Data Characterization and Windspeed Risk
Tornado data records are analyzed for potential classification error, F-scale windspeed correlation, and tornado intensity variation. This assessment provides quantification of the uncertainties...

A Correlation of N-Factors

Portfolio Theory: Applications in Construction
Portfolio theory and bid strategy models are used to select construction projects and determine bid prices. Probabilistic estimates of cost of existing projects are used to generate the...

Soil Liquefaction Procedures—A Review
Various procedures used for evaluating soil liquefaction are reviewed and compared. Major emphasis is given to the equivalent uniform cycle procedure and the cumulative damage approach....

Automation in Surveying and Mapping: Present and Future
Patterns of present-day automation in photogrammetry are examined in seven broad categories: stereoplotter-computer interface; automatic image correlation; offline orthophoto systems;...

Effect of Soil Set Up on Pile Driveability in Chalk
This paper deals with the analysis of delay data and the effect of delay on pile driving resistance. Based on the analysis of observed pile driving data, the increase in soil resistance...

System Identification in Structural Dynamics
The correlation between analytical structural model and experimental test results has become the subject of considerable recent research efforts. This area is known as System Identification....

Lifeline Viability of Rock Tunnels: Empirical Correlations and Future Research Needs

Correlation Between the Buckling of Uniformly Stiffened and Isotropic Plates

Response to Stochastic Wind of N-Degree Tall Buildings
Herein, wind is modeled as a planar multivariate stochastic process whose temporal and spatial correlation structure is specified from measured wind data. Wind forces are simulated in...

Optimum Design for Infrequent Disturbances
Sporadic disturbances such as earthquakes and tornadoes are idealized as renewal processes. Uncertainties are classified according to their time correlation into disturbance, structure,...

Seasonal and Nonseasonal ARMA Models in Hydrology
The ARMA (autoregressive moving average) processes may be fitted to stationarized series obtained by subtraction of the seasonal means and division by the seasonal standard deviations....

Correlation Analysis of Hydrometeorological Data
Mean monthly time series of precipitation, runoff, atmospheric water vapor transport, terrestrial storage, and evapotranspiration for watersheds distributed over the entire continental...

Arctic Refraction Study
Atmospheric refraction corrections applied to observed zenith angles have long been considered the largest source of error in polar astronomic observations. The use of radiosonde data...

Analysis of Activity Networks under Uncertainty
A practical probabilistic technique is presented for evaluating the distribution of project completion time. Upper and lower bounds on the completion-time probability are established and...

South Platte River Flow Correlations
It is pointed out that an effective management of the water resources of the South Platte River will require a quantitative prior knowledge of what effects changes will have. A computation...

Statistical Design of Equalization Basins
The design of equalization basins is based on a statistical characterization of the influent rates of mass and fluid flow. The statistics required are the means, standard deviations, and...

Discussion: Correlations Between Vane Shear Strength and Cone Resistance in Some Norwegian Soft Clays

Evaluation of Phosphorus Dynamics in a Watershed
Phosphorus dynamics in a small river system have been measured to determine phosphorus transport mechanisms and correlation with hydrodynamic phenomena. Variation of chemical forms with...

Statistical Evaluation of Reaeration Prediction Equations
The object of much of the experimentation in atmospheric reaeration of natural streams is to develop models for predicting the reaeration coefficient, k2....
