Independent Turbine Testing and Research
The St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory (SAFHL) is presently upgrading their Turbine Test Facility. Completion of the upgrade, including checkout tests, is scheduled for Fall 1987....

An Expert Advisor for the QUAL2E Water Quality Model

Gas Transfer at Hydraulic Structures
Field measurements of gas transfer at hydraulic structures are notoriously difficult and imprecise. A technique which measures the transfer of hydrocarbon tracer gases has been tested...

Surface Water Pumps: Model-Prototype Calibration

Extraction of Light Gasses from Mars or its Moons
The light elements H, C, N, O and S are important for propellant production and life support in space. These light elements occur on Mars, and may occur on the martian moons Phobos and...

Gas Recycling: A Bioregenerative Life Support System
The prospect of a lunar or earth-orbiting space station raises the question of life support for long periods of time with little or no support from earth. The cost of lifting supplies...

Effect of Conowingo Dam Releases on the Water Quality of the Lower Susquehanna River
A modeling study was performed to assess the effects of flow releases from Conowingo Dam on the water quality of Conowingo Pond and the Susquehanna River downstream of the dam. Reservoir...

Turbine Efficiency Loss Associated with Draft Tube Aeration
Draft tube aeration is one method for improving the dissolved oxygen content of hydroelectric discharges. A simple analytical procedure is presented for estimating the loss in turbine...

The Optimization of Nitrification and Denitrification in Plug-Flow Activated Sludge Systems Treating Municipal Wastestreams
Most conventional plug-flow activated sludge plants experience nitrification, particularly during higher temperature conditions. Under these circumstances, additional power is required...

Improving Streamflow and Water Quality Below Dams
Progress by the Tennessee Valley Authority on improving dissolved oxygen (DO) and flow conditions below hydropower projects is discussed. New methods of turbine venting have resulted in...

Oxygenation of Releases from Richard B. Russell Dam
The oxygen injection system at the Richard B. Russell project has a continuous injection system located 1 mile upstream of the Russell damsite but also has supplemental injection capability...

A Unified Hydrodynamic-Water Quality Model
To understand the cause-effect relationships controlling water quality in dynamically narrow estuaries, a time dependent branching, laterally averaged (longitudinal and vertical) hydrodynamic...

Effect of Baghdad City Sewage Treatment Effluents on Dissolved Oxygen Profiles of an Iraqi River
The paper presents measured dissolved oxygen (DO) profiles in an Iraqi river in the vicinity of Baghdad City. The effect of the effluent discharges from Baghdad Sewage Treatment Plant...

Air-Water Oxygen Transfer at Spillways and Hydraulic Jumps
Dissolved oxygen measurements are reported for seven spillway structures in the vicinity of Minneapolis, Minnesota, corresponding to 27 individual surveys. The surveys are taken during...

Potential for Nitrate Removal from Groundwater Supplies Using Biological Deintrification
Nitrate concentrations in groundwater supplies have been increasing over the years throughout many areas in the U. S. to the point of posing potential health dangers to a multitude of...

Significance of In-Stream Denitrification
In-stream denitrification rates were calculated using a simultaneous nitrogen and dissolved oxygen mass balancing technique. Anaerobic, laboratory, incubation of stream bottom samples...

Predicting Carbon Adsorption of Organics from Humid Air
Increased levels of humidity resulted in reduced adsorption capacity for trichloroethylene (TCE) at low influent concentrations on a microporous activated carbon. Water vapor also reduced...

Factors Influencing Oxygen Depletion in Green Bay
Dissolved oxygen depletion in the lower Fox River (Wisconsin) and Green Bay (Lake Michigan) have historically been tied to discharges of organic matter from municipal waste treatment plants...

Coral Reef Modeling: Key Largo Case Study
A numerical model called CORALSIM has been developed for the Key Largo Coral Reef National Marine Sanctuary in the Florida Keys. The model was developed as a management tool to study the...

Turbine Efficiency Loss Associated with Draft Tube Aeration
Draft tube aeration is one method for improving the dissolved oxygen content of hydroelectric discharge. A simple analytical procedure is presented for estimating the loss in turbine efficiency...
