Boundary-Conforming Coordinate System for Groundwater and Contaminant Transport Modeling

River Ice Cover Cracking for Various Boundary Conditions
The breakup of river ice covers is commonly initiated by the formation of cracks parallel to river banks. These cracks usually result from a change in the water level due to a rapid rising...

Flow and Transport Around a Noncontinuous Horizontal Layer at Yucca Mountain
Computer simulations were used to examine the effect of a noncontinuous horizontal layer on the flow field and contaminant transport of a simplified conceptual model. The domain consisted...

An Alternative Method to Mariotte Reservoir System for Maintaining Constant Hydraulic Pressure
Several problems with the Mariotte reservoir system were discovered when it was used to apply a constant water pressure as a boundary condition for a prolonged period. The constant-pressure...

A Comparison of Accuracies of Steady Water Surface Profiles
The author compares the effect of varying boundary conditions and cross sectional spacing on one dimensional steady water surface profiles. Six streams are modeled using both the 10 and...

Uncertainty in Urban Hydrologic Modeling
Uncertainty is pervasive in hydrologic modeling. Uncertainty is present in the formulation of the physical situation to be modeled, in the form of the model to be used, in the boundary...

The Boundary Element Method in Engineering Practice
The advances in computer aided engineering has revolutionised many aspects of the engineering design in the last twenty years or so. During this time, design engineers have relied heavily...

Structural Response Statistics by Boundary Elements
In this paper a boundary element method for problems of random vibration of continuous structures is presented. The method reduces the effect of the mesh size on the accuracy of the results....

Boundary Element Calculation of Nonlinear Wave Generation and Wave Current Interactions
A boundary element model is used to simulate the problem of nonlinear wave generation, and the interactions of wave and current. The numerical model is established based on the potential...

Interaction of Viscous Free-Surface Flow with Submerged Structure
The fully-transformed unsteady incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved numerically in a time-dependent boundary-fitted coordinate system. In addition, the complete viscous free-surface...

Time-Domain Transmitting Boundary Condition in Fluid-Structure Interaction Studies
One of the major difficulties in the nonlinear analyses of fluid-structure interactions has been the lack of exact expressions for the transmitting boundary in the time domain. Researchers...

Interaction Between Waves and a Floating Body with Tension Legs
A boundary element method has been solved to the coupling problem of a two-dimensional tension leg platform interacting with a monochromatic wave train. In the boundary element calculation,...

On the Solution of Plates and Shells Mixed Boundary Problems
Strain-stress state analysis on plates and shells under mixed boundary conditions is of significant practical value: a lot of problems, arisen in machine design, civil engineering etc.,...

Flexural and Extensional Motion of Moderately Thick Laminated Composite Plates
A general theory of flexural and extensional motion of moderately thick laminated composite plates is developed for linear elastic materials and small deformation. Interlaminar stresses...

An Analytical Solution to Free Vibration Problems of Cross-ply Laminated Thin Doubly-curved Shells
Hitherto an unavailable analytical solution to the free vibration boundary value problems (b.v.ps.) of symmetric and antisymmetric cross-ply laminated thin doubly-curved shells of rectangular...

Computer Simulations of Rapid Granular Flows Interacting with a Flat, Frictional Boundary
This paper compares the results of numerical simulations for the rapid, steady flow of identical spheres colliding with a flat frictional boundary with the recent predictions of Jenkins...

Modelling Vertical Ground Movements Using Surface Climatic Flux

Alaska Coastal Management Program: Development of the Coastal Zone Boundary
The Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 required participating states to identify areas subject to a state management program, or delineate a coastal zone boundary. Alaska's...

Reassessing the 3-Mile State/Federal Boundary
The allocation of state versus federal authority offshore is critical in determining the complexion and pace of OCS oil and gas development. Yet, recurring drilling moratoria indicate...

Fishery Management Implications of the U.S. Territorial Sea Extension
The Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976 (MFCMA) declares a national standard that '[t]o the extent practicable, an individual stock of fish shall be managed...
