Use of SALQR Optimization in Large Aquifer Cleanup
A modified form of Differential Dynamic Programming (DDP), called Suc cessive Approximation to a Linear Quadratic Regulator (SALQR), is used to compute optimal policies for remediation...

Siting of Grade Control Structures
In siting a grade control structure in a stream, hydraulic considerations must be integrated with other important siting factors. A review of several of the important siting factors is...

South Carolina Department of Transportation's Statewide Program of Bridge Scour Evaluation
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has instituted a program to satisfy the FHWAs requirements to evaluate the scour potential of the Nations bridges. The SCDOT's...

Modeling Groundwater Response to a Perimeter Flood
A large industrial facility in the west of France was impacted by a flood in January 1995. Costs associated with the disruption in one week of production were estimated at $15E6 US. In...

Mitigation of Predation at a Juvenile Bypass Outfall Site
Reducing predation at an outfall has become an increasingly important consideration in the design of a juvenile salmonid bypass system. To minimize the exposure juveniles have with predators...

Potential-Scour Assessments at 130 Bridges in Iowa
A total of 130 highway bridges in Iowa were assessed for potential scour using a potential-scour index developed by the U.S. Geological Survey for a bridge-scour study in western Tennessee....

Infiltration Properties at Two Sites in the Konza Prairie
The spatial variability of soil hydraulic properties that govern infiltration were investigated at a pristine site and an agricultural site in the Konza Prairie Research Area of east-central...

Hydraulic Effects of Habitat Structures in Flood Control Channels
Three field sites have been established and laboratory flume experiments begun to assess the effect of habitat enhancement measures on water-surface profiles and local scour in flood control...
