Modeling of the Ventilation for Emplacement Drift Re-Entry and Rock Drying
Different ventilation scenarios were analyzed for a hot repository with a 114 kw/Acre heat load, to determine the time required to cool a drift to the point where the temperature of the...

Flow Visualization and Relative Permeability Measurements in Rough-Walled Fractures
Two-phase (gas-liquid) flow experiments were done in a natural rock fracture and transparent replicas of natural fractures. Liquid was injected at constant volume flow rate, and gas was...

Water Quality Model of the Chicago Waterway
In 1992, the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (the District) developed a QUAL2E water quality model of the Chicago waterway and Upper Illinois waterway. The model...

Simulation of Water Quality Processes in the Chicago Waterway and Upper Illinois River Systems
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency QUAL2E-UNCAS (QUAL2EU) computer program was used to simulate the water quality processes in the Chicago waterway and Upper Illinois River Systems....

Managing a Bridge Program for Scour
Recent events have focused national attention on the need for States to implement a managed program to determine the scour vulnerability of each of its bridges. Since 85% of all bridges...

Free the Elwha|
The Elwha River flows northward from the middle of Washington's Olympic Peninsula to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. As a coastal river basin, it was once home to all five species of Pacific...

Effects of Estuarine Habitat Quality on Juvenile Salmon: I. Chemical Contaminant Exposure and II. Altered Growth and Immune Function
Some urban estuaries on the west coast of the US are important habitats for several species of juvenile salmon and receive multiple stresses from human activities. Because these estuaries...

Sedimentation Patterns of a Restored Tidal Wetland
Coyote Slough Lagoon was flooded as part of a local mitigation project in 1986. The design of the restored marsh included peninsulas to break up the local fetch and resulted in the development...
