Simulated Hanford Waste: A Study of Physical Properties, Gas Retention, and Gas Generation
This study helps to establish the physical and chemical processes responsible for the generation and retention of gases within high-level waste contained in Tank 101-SY on the Hanford...

Modeling Gravity-Driven Fingering in Rough-Walled Fractures Using Modified Percolation Theory
Pore scale invasion percolation theory is modified for imbibition of wetting fluids into fractures. The effects of gravity, local aperture field geometry, and local in-plane air/water...

The Development and Use of Policy Statements in River Simulation Models
There are a number of ways in which the physical operation of a river system can be expressed in simulation models. Most of the earlier simulation models have incorporated the operating...

Object Based Visualization of Physical Behavior
In engineering science, the physical behavior of solids, fluids, gases and multiphase systems is analyzed with computational models. Numerical methods form the basis of the computational...

Integrating Database and Geometric Modeling Technologies to Manage Facility Information
Existing engineering data models provide various means of representing, organizing and linking information about constructed facilities in a computer-integrated environment. However, they...

Use of Geographic Information Processing for the Identification of Indirect Impacts Associated with Regulatory Permitting Programs: For Now, a Conceptual Model
The utilization of Geographic Information Processing (GIP) for the identification and assessment of direct impacts to coastal ecosystems allowed under the guidelines of regulatory permitting...

Subsidence Properties of Holocene Sediments: S. La.
As part of a comprehensive USGS-sponsored study of processes that drive subsidence and wetland loss in south Louisiana, two continuously cored deep borings (60 m and 72 m) were acquired...

Laboratory Testing of an Artificial Reef Erosion Control Device
A physical model study has been conducted to examine the effectiveness of a concrete artificial reef in limiting offshore, storm-induced sand loss from a nourished beach. The experiment...

Physical Modeling of Barbers Point Harbor
Physical modeling is a practical tool in the design of coastal projects. A physical model of Barbers Point Harbor located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii was constructed so that different...

Coastal Morphological Modeling for the Southern North Sea
The paper gives a inventory of mathematical model concepts for coastal morphological applications, from sophisticated short-term process models based on first physical principles, via...

National Weather Service Interactive River Forecasting Using State, Parameter, and Data Modifications
Interactive flood and river flow forecasting using the National Weather Service Interactive Forecast Program (IFP) is outlined. The IFP is an extension of the National Weather Service...

Overland Flow Resistance Estimation from Small-Plot Data
The correct application of physical process models, such as the kinetic wave approximation to shallow overland flow, is dependent upon selection of appropriate values for parameters which...

Establishing a Drought Reserve Policy for the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District
The Monterey Peninsula Water Management District was created by the California Legislature in 1977 for the purpose of developing an integrated management program for all of the water resources...

Federal Levee Effects on Flood Heights Near St. Louis
A physical model of the Middle Mississippi River was used to perform quantitative analyses of Federal levee effects on flood heights. Contrary to some opinions of the general public, these...

Computational Modeling of Sedimentation Processes
The Committee on Computer modeling is a part of the task force on updating ASCE Manual 54, `Sedimentation Engineering.' The task will require a new chapter since computer...

Tidal Propagation in a Distorted Model
A largely analytical study of tidal flow in the Sacramento/San Joaquin delta system provides the basis of an investigation of physical model distortion on tidal circulation in a complicated...

Numerical Models of Phytoplankton Dynamics for Shallow Estuaries
The relationship between physical processes and phytoplankton population dynamics in coastal ocean waters is a complicated issue largely because of the shallowness of the water column,...

Regulation of Flow Downstream of Weirs
Reregulation weirs are one means adopted by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to provide continuous improved minimum flow and wetted area for aquatic life downstream if hydroprojects...

Rheometry of Natural Sediment Slurries
Recent experimental analyses of natural sediment slurries yield diverse results yet exhibit broad commonality of rheological responses under a range of conditions and shear rates. Results...

Hydraulic Modeling of High Unit Discharge Energy Dissipators
The incorporation of an efficient and economical energy dissipation device is critical with respect to the safe operation of a high unit discharge spillway. The development and design...
