Salinity Intrusion in Louisiana Coastal Canals
Field data of the salinity intrusion in three Louisiana coastal canals were presented. In these canals, the mixing state can be categorized as, in general, well mixing at the Gulf side...

Longitudinal Dispersion in Partially-Mixed Estuaries
The longitudinal dispersion in partially-mixed estuaries was formulated to consist of two terms. The first term accounts for the dispersion due to the vertical and transverse shear of...

Turbulent Transverse Shear Flows in Shallow Waters
Shallow turbulent mixing layers, generated downstream of a splitter plate between a fast and a slow open-channel flows of shallow water depth, were investigated experimentally for vertical...

Expert System for Mixing Zone Analysis of Toxic and Conventional Discharges
The Cornell Mixing Zone Expert System (CORMIX) is a series of software subsystems for the analysis, prediction and design of aqueous toxic or conventional pollutant discharges into watercourses...

A Model for Gravity Flows of Water-Granule Mixtures

Analysis of a Production Well Through Sediments Containing Gas Hydrates
In some of the petroleum reservoirs recently discovered north of the Arctic Circle, production wells extend through thick permafrost. Several authors have reported zones of gas hydrate...

Cement Grouting: Water Minimising Practices
Water gives cement grout its mobility, but the water needed for mobility exceeds hydration requirements substantially in most applications. If this excess water is allowed to collect and...

Use of Asphalt in Treatment of Dam Foundation Leakage, Stewartsville Dam
This paper presents the recent development and application of a hot asphalt grouting technique used to stop a 5,000 Imperial Gallons Per Minute (IGPM) (22,000 lpm) dam leakage under full...

Enhanced Mobility of Polynuclear Aromatic Compounds in Soil Systems
The objective of this study was to determine adsorption isotherms for polynuclear aromatic (PNA) compounds in methanol and a mixture of 50 percent methanol 50 percent water. The adsorption...

Solubility of Aromat6ic Solutes and Sorption onto Soil in Polar Solvent/Water Systems
An investigation was performed to evaluate the solubility and sorption of aromatic solutes onto soil from an aqueous phase containing polar solvent. This work relates to the evaluation...

Flow and Mixing Calculations for a Two-Dimensional Reservoir Water Quality Model
A two-dimensional reservoir water quality box model has been developed and applied to several Tennessee Valley Authority reservoirs including a mainstem reservoir that is fully mixed vertically,...

Particle Sizes in Flocculation and Sedimentation: Models and Experiments
D. F. Lawler et al. developed a model for flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration and predicted the effects of particle size distribution and concentration of the influent in water...

Unique Ash Disposal Facility Protects Water Quality

Pollutant Transport Model for Overland Flow

Conserve On-Farm Irrigation Water with Soil-Cement

Water Quality Management Techniques for Reservoirs
The curtailment of nutrient, organic matter, and sediment loads to reservoirs is a direct means for improving water quality. However, the recycling of nutrients and/or the failure to sufficiently...

Dredging in a Stratified Estuary
Grays Harbor is a moderately stratified estuary on the Washington coast. During the summer of 1983, while hopper dredges worked the upper reaches of the estuary, extensive water quality...

Research in Hydraulics at California Institute of Technology
Activities are centered in the W. M. Keck Laboratory of Hydraulics and Water Resources. Research projects active at the Laboratory reflect a continuing commitment to traditional areas...

Fluorescent Tracer Mixing Experiments in Glenmore Reservoir, Calgary
Mixing studies using salt and dye as tracers were conducted in Glenmore Reservoir which is the major water supply for the City of Calgary, Alberta. The purpose of the studies was to find...
