The Evaluation of Empty Bed Contact Time on the Biodegradation of Pentachlorophenol using an Anaerobic GAC Fluidized Bed
The objective of this research is to evaluate the effects of decreasing the empty-bed contact time (EBCT) on pentachlorophenol and its intermediates utilizing an anaerobic granular activated...

Biodegradation of 2,4-Dinitrotoluene in a Two Stage System
An anaerobic/anoxic fluidized-bed GAC bioreactor in series with an activated sludge reactor was used to treat 2,4-Dinitrotoluene (2,4-DNT). A simulated high strength wastewater solution...

NCASI Experiment Related to Validation of Equilibrium Partitioning (EP) Theory
A review of NCASI's technical studies related to evaluating equilibrium partitioning (EP) theory as it is commonly applied in regulatory setting is presented. Although interim results...

Flood Propagation on Mobile Beds under Mountainous Flow Conditions
An implicit finite-volume scheme is used to solve the shallow water equations under mountainous flow conditions. The algorithm is stable for sub- and supercritical flows and moving internal...

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,...

Using the SedBed Monitor to Measure Bed Load
An acoustic distance measuring device (SedBed Monitor) was developed to accurately measure bed surface transects in a sediment and water recirculating flume. From these transects the rate...

Vertical Sorting Within Dune Structure
Sediment transport occurs in natural stream beds at least in part as bed load. These bed forms are typically classified as ripples or dunes depending on the bed morphology and flow conditions....

On Measurements of Particle Spinning Motion
Investigation of particle saltation motion is crucial to the development of the theory of bed load transport. Due to the combination effects of the bed roughness and the velocity gradient,...

Experimental Study on Turbulent Structures in Unsteady Open-channel Flows
Turbulence measurements in unsteady open-channel flows over smooth beds were conducted accurately by the simultaneous use of two-component LDA system and water-wave gauges. In the inner...

Response of Velocity and Turbulence to Abrupt Changes from Smooth to Rough Beds in Open-channel Flows
Response of velocity distribution and turbulence characteristics to abrupt changes of bed roughness have been investigated experimentally with two-component laser Doppler anemometer (LDA)....

Visual Investigation of Field Bed-Load Sampling
An instrument for bed load sampling was developed consisting of an underwater video camera for visual observations. This instrument is called the Delft-Nile sampler and its design, efficiency...

Design and Operation of a System to Monitor Sediment Deposition for Protection of an Endangered Mussel
The USGS, in cooperation with the COE, has designed and installed a system to continuously monitor changes in elevation of the river bed over the mussel bed located downstream of the Olmsted...

Trenchless Sewer System Reconstruction Techniques

Practical Method for Scour Prediction at Bridge Piers
A practical method is presented for prediction of local scour at bridge piers which is based on a comparison of many well known equations and supported by field data. This equation includes...

Effect of Pier Geometry on Scour in Graded Gravels
This paper summarizes the results of laboratory tests performed on clear water scour around circular and rectangular cross section bridge piers, embedded in a non-uniform coarse sediment...

Is Bedform Development Chaotic?
A qualitative analysis of a model for the partially specified bedform development system is presented. The study rests on the use of technique of loop analysis and the connection of the...

Contaminant Fate and Transport Model in Pool-and-Riffle Streams
The complex nature of solute transport and transformation processes in natural streams has been investigated using numerical solution of a proposed mathematical model. This model is based...

Monitoring and Modeling the Transport of Coarse Single Particles in Mountain Rivers
The dynamics of single cobbles was studied in the alpine river Lainbach using the Magnetic Tracer Technique (MATT) and radiotransmitters (PETSY = PEbble Transmitter SYstem). Our measurements...

An Alternative Equation for the Mean Velocity in Gravel-Bed Rivers and Mountain Torrents
Including new field data in the slope range of torrents up to 63%, an empirical equation is developed to express the mean flow velocity in terms of the flow rate, the slope and a characteristic...
