Alternatives Analysis Using Two-Dimensional Modeling for the Owensboro Bridge and Approaches
The Federal Highway Administration plans to design and construct a new bridge over the Ohio River near Owensboro Kentucky. A hydraulic model with two-dimensional capabilities was utilized....

A Comparison of Short Term Forecast Methods for Municipal Water Use
Water utilities routinely develop long range demand forecasts for use in the normal planning activities. In recent years, many utilities have sought to develop more short-term demand forecasts...

Performance of Free Draining Base Course at Fort Campbell, Kentucky
In 1990 a free draining base course layer was constructed in the structural section of a pavement to be used as a military vehicle maintenance yard at Port Campbell, Kentucky. The Corps...

Expert System Applications for Bridge Engineering

Foundation Evaluation of Barkley Dam for Seismic Analysis
An in-situ site investigation was performed at Barkley Dam, KY to gather essential information on the stratigraphy and nature of the foundation soils. From this information the site was...

Seismic Vulnerability Assessment of Bridges on Earthquake Priority Routes in Western Kentucky
This paper discusses the current conditions of 203 bridges on the priority routes in Western Kentucky and their vulnerabilities to earthquakes. A span-loss type of bridge collapse due...

Runoff Modeling Using the Geomorphological Instantaneous Unit Hydrograph and ARC/INFO Geographic Information System
The degree to which the spatial variability of watershed characteristics (geographical and climatological) is recognized for simulating watershed runoff depends on the hydrologic model...

Failure of Blue Heron Road Embankment Supported by Reinforced Earth Wall

Reservoir Operations by Fuzzy Goal Programming
The reservoir operations problem is composed of obtaining optimal releases, and storages of a reservoir and downstream reach routed flows based on forecasted inflows and precipitation....

Water Quality Management During Low-Flow Periods: A Systems Analysis Approach
Water quality objectives may require water managers to consider deviations from original project purposes to provide downstream water quality maintenance during low-flow periods. The decision...

Model Study of Potential Debris Problems at the Proposed Diversion of Clover Fork River, Harlan, Kentucky
A study was conducted at the Waterways Experiment Station in Vicksburg, Mississippi, using a physical and a numerical model, to evaluate the entrance conditions at a proposed tunnel diversion...

Martins Fork Reservoir Sedimentation Study
The Martins Fork Reservoir is located on Martins Fork of the Cumberland River in Harlan County, Kentucky. The lake was impounded in December, 1978. Since closure, the lake has experienced...

Reservoir System Management for Hydropower
