The purpose of this paper is to introduce the application of a two-dimensional Finite Element Surface Water Modelling System on a navigation problem located along the Nile river in front...

Calibration of Movable Bed Model for Armant Area
The morphology of the Nile River, in Egypt, is undergoing continuous changes which causes navigation bottle-necks in some local reaches. About 200 km downstream Aswan, at Armant area,...

Recent Applications of Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers
A Broadband acoustic Doppler current profiler (BB-ADCP) is a new instrument being used by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to measure stream discharge and velocities, and bathymetry....

The Miller City Levee Break and Incipient Meander Cutoff
On July 15, 1993, the flooding Mississippi River broke through a levee near Miller City, Ill., at the head of the Mississippi Embayment, approximately 55 km upstream from Cairo, Ill. Flow...

Fast-Track Stadium
The project team selected to design and construct Egypt's cable-supported Cairo Stadium Indoor Sports Complex in late 1989 faced a hard-and-fast deadline. Just 18 months later,...

Geomorphological and Geological Evolution of the Quaternary Nile Delta and its Rate of Subsidence
Three-dimensional geomorphological models have been constructed for the Nile Delta, simply illustrate its development and geologic evolution from the Late Pliocene to Recent. This attempt...

Cost Recovery for Multipurpose Water Delivery Systems in Egypt
This study addresses the problem of distributing costs to the beneficiaries of incremental expenditures needed to improve the performance of the Nile water delivery system in Egypt. Emphasis...

Bed Sediments Size Changes, Atchafalaya River
During low flows of 1989 and 1991, we collected bed sediment samples from the thalwegs of the Mississippi River from Cairo, Illinois, to Head of Passes and along the Atchafalaya River...

Model Study of Local Scour Downstream Bridge Piers
A deep scour hole downstream of a large circular pier has been developed at Imbaba bridge, which is considered one of the major bridges across the Nile River in Cairo, Egypt. At that location...

Egypt's Real-Time Water Management
The challenge and complexity of efficiently managing the distribution of the 55 billion m that Egypt draws from the Nile every year has prompted the country's Ministry of...

The Design of a Reclamation Scheme by Preloading

Use of Pilot Projects for Technology Transfer in Developing Countries
Pilot projects of various sizes - 25-1100 ha of farm land - have been used to demonstrate new concepts in water supply and farming practices in Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan, and they...

Combined Allocation and Operation Model
Delft Hydraulics has developed a model package for the water management of irrigation schemes. The model package runs on a Personal Computer and is to be used by local water managers....

Case Studies of Utilizing a Flexible Automated Supply in Developing Countries
The need is seldom questioned for a water supply that is available when the crop needs it - frequency; at a rate that can be satisfactorily used; and for a duration that provides just...

An Airfield Pavement Forensic Analysis: Cairo East Air Base
The US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) was requested by the Middle East/Africa Projects Office in April 1989 to provide technical assistance in analyzing an unstable asphalt...

Available Data for Management of the Egyptian Red Sea Coastal Areas
An evaluation of the available data and the existing environmental conditions will help to assess the future potential impacts of oil fields operations, metalliferous muds, phosphate mining...

Processes of Shoreline Change Along the Nile Delta Coast of Egypt
A comprehensive program has been underway for more than a decade to collect nearshore data related to erosion problems experienced along the shoreline of the Nile Delta. The data include...
