A Lagrangian Model for Surface Buoyant Jets
A model is developed to predict the trajectory of a surface buoyant discharge into a large receiving water body. A Lagrangian approach is used to trace the path of a `control volume' of...

de St-Venant Channel Routing in Distributed Watershed Modeling

Evaluation of Six Methods for the LP3 Distribution
Six frequently used estimation methods for the Log-Pearson type 3 distribution were evaluated using both the predictive and the descriptive performance indices. Ten LP3 populations and...

Approximating the Imbibition and Absorption Behavior of a Distribution of Matrix Blocks by an Equivalent Spherical Block

Intercomparison of Extremal Wave Analysis Methods Using Numerically Simulated Data

Statistical Response of a Class of Hysteretic Systems
The response of a hysteretic nonlinear system subjected to a filtered white noise is considered. The method of time-dependent equivalent linearization is used and the moment equations...

Remote Sensing of AstrofuelTM
A direct, high-resolution measurement from lunar orbit of the location of high concentrations of 3He in the lunar regolith is needed for the initiation...

Wind-Induced Vibrations of Tall Buildings Using Tuned Mass Damper
A Lagrange formulation is applied to tall buildings using tuned mass damper. The resulting equations of motion are analyzed using a frequency window method. The method reduces the computational...

Effect of Lead Shielding on Small Cask Criticality
A study was performed to evaluate gamma shield effects on criticality safety for two modern legal weight truck casks. The lead gamma shield of a small spent fuel shipping cask increases...

The Effect of Gamma Irradiation on the Volatility and Redox State of Simulated DWPF High-Level Nuclear Waste Glasses
Gamma-induced volatility of simulated DWPF high-level nuclear waste glasses is highly dependent upon the redox state of the glass. For oxidized glasses with an Fe2+/(Fe2+...

A Rezoning Procedure for Finite Element Analysis of Rubber-like Materials
In this paper, we propose a rezoning procedure for finite element analysis of rubber-like materials. Rezoning procedures connect the distorted mesh and the newly created and undistorted...

Measuring the Effect of Sediment Fences for Wetland Creation and Restoration in Louisiana
A sediment erosion table (SET) method has been developed to monitor changes over time in intertidal mudflat or pond elevations with an accuracy in the 1.5 mm range. The SET permitted rapid...

Trace Metal Distribution in the Sediments of the Bight of Bonny, South Eastern Nigeria
Coastal sediments are important hosts for pollutant trace metals. The concentration and distributions of heavy metals depend on factors such as grain size of sediments, availability and...

Aiming at Port and Harbour Technology Mild to Human Beings and the Earth
The ports and harbors bureau of the ministry of transport formulated and announced a long-term port and harbor development policy, ports and harbors toward the twenty-first century aiming...

Temporal Variation of Precipitation Trend at Seoul, Korea, 1771-1991
This paper describes temporal variation of annual precipitation trend from 1771 to 1991 at Seoul, Korea. Analysis of the series shows no distinct trend over years. A linear trend would...

Unit Hydrograph Estimation Procedures Using Orthogonal Functions
All unit hydrograph estimation procedures based on orthogonal functions are reviewed in this paper. A more physically based orthogonal function (a gamma function) for unit hydrograph estimation...

Probabilistic Characteristics of Elapsed Time Between Rainfalls
The elapsed time between rainfalls is analyzed statistically using the hourly rain data at two locations: the flat-plain at Urbana, Illinois and the northwestern Appalachian foothills...

Measuring Soil Bulk Density Profiles with a Single Probe Gamma Density Gauge
Calibrating neutron depth gauges for measuring soil water content profiles requires soil bulk density data. In this study, the feasibility of using a single probe gamma density gauge to...

Optimizing Water Transfers in Urban Water Supply Planning
A number of water supply agencies in the Western United States have begun to integrate water transfers into their overall water supply planning, including the use of transferred water...
