Kahului Harbor: The Evolution of Two Breakwaters

Resource Suitability Analysis for Hawaiian Forests

Further Tests on Ocean Wave Forces on Sphere
Wave force coefficients have been obtained for a 28.8-in diam sphere. The work was done at a test site in 37 ft of water offshore from Honolulu. The peak flow velocities encountered during...

Goethermal Reservoir Engineering: Performance Matching and Predicting
The initial conditions (physical and chemical state) of a geothermal reservoir and its fluids are important information needed in geothermal reservoir engineering for determining the future...

Reef Runway is First in Airport Design
The Reef Runway Project of Honolulu International Airport constructed on a coral reef, provides approximately 765 acres of new land for the 12,000-ft-long runway with its associated taxiways...

Personnel Management of Engineering Organizations
Which personnel management approaches are most successful, and why? We surveyed ASCE's Sections and Branches in search of answers. And reviewed the 120 or so nominations in...

Hawaii Wetlands Mapping

Simulation of Waste-Water Injection into a Coastal Aquifer System Near Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii

Energy Gradient Line for Drip Irigation Laterals
This paper is a part of the study of the Western Regional Research Project, W-128, Trickle Irrigation to Improve Crop Production and Water Management. This paper was published with the...

State-of-the-Art of Geothermal Reservoir Engineering
The paper is a comprehensive survey into the state-of-the-art in geothermal reservoir engineering, and while there is a general lack of hard quantitative data, there is rapid progress...

Conditional Expected Tsunami Inundation for Hawaii
Values were reported for a priori estimates of expected tsunami inundation — conditioned by values for epicenter location and tsunami magnitude. Those values of conditional expected tsunami...

Drought and Water Management in Central Maui

Water Quality and Effluent Standards of Hawaii
The sequential development of water quality standards for the State of Hawaii, commencing with the passage of the federal Water Quality Act of 1965, resulted in the enactment of receiving...

Effects of Coastal Waste Disposal in Hawaii
The Hawaii Islands still retain the image of a pristine tropical paradise, although environmental pressures can be observed in some locations, particularly on the island of Oahu, where...

Optimal Irrigation Quantity and Frequency
Mathematical models are derived for two different irrigation practices: (1) Soil moisture is kept equal or below the optimal soil moisture and (2) soil moisture is allowed to fluctuate...

Hydrology and Geology of the Honolulu Aquifer
In one sub-basin of the highly permeable basalt forming the Honolulu aquifer, the freshwater that floats upon and mixes with underlying sea water has been withdrawn at rates exceeding...

Design and Construction of the Makai Range Habitat

Tsunami Refraction Diagrams by Digital Computer
Important wave parameters to be considered for tsunami model studies are wave height, period, and orientation. The first two of these parameters can be determined by marigraphic measurements...

Generalized Rainfall - Duration - Frequency Relationships
Rainfall-duration-frequency estimates for engineering purposes are usually subject to large sampling errors and extensive generalizations of the basic data are therefore advantageous from...

Structural Damage from Tsunami at Hilo, Hawaii
A team of engineers and scientists visited Hilo on the Island of Hawaii after the tsunami of 1960 to survey the damage. The principal items studied were the general wave characteristics...
