Determination of Vertical Leakage for Nile Valley
The determination of vertical groundwater leakage is particularly important for irrigated agriculture where adequate drainage is required to prevent high water tables and related problems...

Joint Occurrence of High Tide and Storm Surge in California
High tides or high storm surges separately generally do not pose a hazard for flooding or structural damage in California. However, when storms and periods of high tides coincide, the...

The Design & Construction of Marina Martinique, S. Africa
Marina Martinique is a coastal residential marina in the eastern Cape Province of South Africa which will ultimately accommodate 730 moorings and 1100 low rise residential units, most...

Upgrading Hydraulic Infrastructure for Level One Redundancy
In the current paper a methodology is presented for upgrading any single source water distribution system in order to provide a level one system redundancy at a minimum cost. A level one...

Cranes Roost Lake Level Management Project
An internally drained water body has historically experienced a wide range of lake level elevations due to its function as a regional aquifer recharge area, and due to the urbanized nature...

Is There a Future for Vacuum Sewers?
Vacuum sewers collect and transport sanitary sewage using pressure difference rather than gravity as the primary motive force. Compared to conventional gravity sewers, they use smaller...

Efficiency Testing of Water Wells
In the operation of a water well, the difference between the water level in the well before pumping starts and after it has been pumping for a period of time is termed 'drawdown.'...

The Hydraulic and Hydrological Interactions Between Urban Sewer Systems and Receiving Waters at High Discharges
In the transition region from sewer to river, the penetration of river flood water into the sewer network or the hydraulic overload of small rivers due to sewer system discharges, may...

Flow Field Near an Inland Navigation Tow
As a vessel moves through a body of water, disturbances are created in the form of altered water levels such as waves or drawdown and altered flow fields such as increased velocities and...

Delineation of Ordinary High Water
'Ordinary high water' is used in a court of law to delineate the extent of land ownership of adjacent riparian owners on navigable rivers. The most appropriate...

Modeling Not By the Numbers
A model is likely to be the tool for making predictions of the ecological impact of an engineering decision. However, ecologists often find it difficult under pressures of time and lack...

Bayesian Framework for Model Structure Uncertainty: Application to Sea-Level Response to Changing Global CO2

Great Lakes Waters: Too Little or Too Much?
Water supplies in the Great Lakes Basin, the world's largest fresh water supply, are more than adequate to meet current and projected needs. However, supplies could become...

Leveling the Playing Field
As professional sports grow, so does the market for elaborate multi-use sports arenas. The new Target Center in Minneapolis features a unique movable floor, 68 luxury suites and a state-of-the-art...

Reliability Analysis in Estimating Turbulent Wind Force on Offshore Structures
This paper presents the results of a reliability analysis carried out to estimate low frequency turbulent wind drag force (including extreme values) acting on a floating offshore structure....

Effects of Ice on Water Levels in the Upper Niagara River

Disintegration of Frozen Granular Materials Using High Pressure Water Jets

Risk-Cost Evaluation of Coastal Protection Projects with Sea Level Rise and Climate Change

Application of Extreme Value Theory to Great Lakes Rise

High Strength Concrete: Proportioning, Behavior and Applications
Generally, concrete with a cylinder compressive strength higher than 6000 psi (41.4 MPa) is designated as high strength concrete. High strengths are achieved using stronger coarse aggregates,...
