Hydraulics of Subsurface Flow Constructed Wetlands
Resistance to flow through subsurface flow wetlands is described by Darcy's law or by Ergun's equation. Both representations are combined with the continuity...

Results of Field Evaluations of the New Modular Inclined Fish Diversion Screen
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has developed and biologically evaluated a new type of fish diversion screen known as the Modular Inclined Screen (MIS). The MIS is designed...

Flood Control in the Brazilian Electric System Reservoirs at Parana River Basin
This paper describes the experience of the Brazilian Electric System in flood control at Parana River basin, and presents the factors that required the consideration of flood impacts in...

Drying of a Heated Porous Medium at Sub-Residual Saturations

Studies on the Erosion of a Compacted Soil
In the management of water there are certain applications in which compacted soil is used (i.e., dams, embankments, levees, spiliways, and channels). Engineers rely primarily on field...

A New Technique for Measuring Vegetation Density
Detennination of the discharge capacity of a vegetated channel or floodplain requires a reasonable estimate of a flow resistance coefficient; such as Manning' n....

Mitigation Measures for Eroding Muddy Shores
A criterion for the stability of muddy coasts is proposed, accounting for bottom resistance, hydrodynarnic forcing and sediment supply. Although qualitative, this criterion provides a...

Vegetation-Induced Drag: An Experimental Study
Open-channel flow models through vegetative canopies require a quantitative measure of the ability of plants to absorb momentum by form drag, which is commonly characterized in terms of...
