Suspended-Solids Flux at a Shallow-Water Site in South San Francisco Bay, California
Time series measurements of current velocity and suspended solids-concentration (SSC) made during December 1993 and March 1994 at a shallow-water site in South San Francisco Bay were used...

Evaluating Hydraulic Roughness in Tunnels
Much of the data presented in the literature on measured friction losses in tunnels are given in terms of the Darcy-Weisbach f or Manning's...

Synchronized Measurements of Bed-Shear Stress and Flow Velocity in Open Channels with Simulated Vegetation
Synchronized measurements of shear stresses at the bed and velocities both within and above a simulated plant canopy in an open-channel flow are presented. Traditional (hot-film sensors)...

Direct Measurement of Turbulence Structures in a Standard Jar Test Tank Using PIV System
Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is applied to the measurement of instantaneous two-dimensional velocity fields in a standard 2-liter jar test tank for several different impeller speeds....

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...

Physical Modeling to Determine Head Loss at Selected Surcharged Sewer Manholes
The head losses at sewer pipe junctions (manholes) under surcharged conditions were measured in a 1:6 scale model of a typical manhole with one main line passing through it and two perpendicular...

Sediment Deposition in the Navigation Approach Channel of Three Gorges Project
In this paper, a comparison is made between the problems of sediment deposition in the navigation approach channel of Gezhouba and Three Gorges Project. The investigation shows that the...

Assessment of Risks of Flooding by Use of a Two-Dimensional Model
In case of rare floods, the rivers might go far away from their minor bed, submerging large areas, eventually with relatively high velocities. One-dimensional models are not suitable to...

Optimal Sizing of Width- and Depth-Constrained Trapezoidal Channels
Open-channels are often designed based on the assumption of uniform flow and normal depth. If a channel is to be lined with a nonerodible material, the dimensions of the channel can be...
