The Time Dependent Ray Method for Calculation of Wave Transformation on Water of Varying Depth and Current
This focuses on an aspect of the numerical calculation of wave refraction using the ray tracing or the semi-Lagrangian approach. the conventional ray method for steady state depth and...

Evolutionary Fourier Analysis of Wave Data
A new method is presented for analyzing nonstationary water level height time series. The usual assumption of pseudo-stationary intervals is avoided and the wave spectra can be changing...

A New Correction Procedure for Shipborne Wave Recorder Data
A new correction procedure for Shipborne Wave Recorder (SBWR) wave height and spectral data is described. The method is based on a reassessment of the available frequency response measurements...

Extensive Comparison of Directional Wave Analysis Methods From Gauge Array Data
In order to settle an efficient operational wave gauge array for estimating directional wave spectrum, several directional analysis methods are implemented and compared. These methods...

Modeling Bottom Friction in Wind-Wave Models
Effects of bottom friction in wind-wave models are investigated, with an emphasis on wave-induced bottom roughnesses (moveable-bed effects). A state-of-the-art bottom friction model is...

Second Order Irregular–Wave Generation in Flumes - Computation of Transfer Functions by an Asymptotic Summation Method
Recently the theory for second order irregular-wave generation (including superharmonics as well as subharmonics) has been rederived for a variety of different types of wave board motion....

Spectral Boussinesq Modelling of Breaking Waves
Random waves passing over a shallow bar are considered, in particular the amplification of bound harmonics in shoaling water, their subsequent release in deepening water, and the role...

Evolution of Breaking Directional Spectral Waves in the Nearshore Zone
Methods used in parabolic refraction-diffraction models for computing the evolution of monochromatic waves in the nearshore zone are used to construct a model for spectral wave conditions....

Convergence and Divergence Between Regulated Riparian and Prior Appropriation Provisions in the ASCE Model State Water Rights Code
Although there are two major American water rights systems-- riparian and prior appropriation--there are mixed systems and variations within each major type. The ASCE Model State Water...

Missouri River Least Tern and Piping Plover Model Development
As part of the update of the Missouri River Master Water Control Manual, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is evaluating the effects of numerous water management alternatives on endangered...

Low-Flow Frequency Analysis with Censored Data
Log-linear regression models are often fit to low-flow quantile estimates from gauged sites to obtain a relationship for estimating low-flow quantiles at ungauged sites. In some regions...

Summer Engineering Outreach Program for Native Americans
Minorities are significantly underrepresented in engineering, science and math fields in the United States. To attract and retain capable minority students will require the development...
