Aerodynamic Resistance of Trains Running Through a Tunnel
In what follows, some previously published results and formulae have been combined in order to obtain an applicable tool for evaluating the energy consumption of trains in tunnel as a...

Hydraulic Design of Reversible Flow Trashracks
This monograph, Hydraulic Design of Reversible Flow Trashracks, consolidates the body of information on reversible flow trashracks into a design...

Incremental Influence of Shore Structures Determined Using a Shoreline Change Model
Shore erosion at Ogden Dunes, Indiana, is thought to be caused by shore structures making up the Burns International Harbor complex, located on the southern shore of Lake Michigan. Long-term...

Forecasting Wave Attenuation Performance for Marinas
A methodology is presented for interpreting the performance of a dynamically acting floating attenuator in a field of irregular waves. The analysis explains the physical significance of...

Beach Evolution and Protection
This paper investigate the evolution of beaches and the effect of different types of protection on this process. The cross-shore and longshore sediment transport, and the different approaches...

A Mathematical Model for Predicting the Motion of Polluting Surface Plumes Due to Drift Currents
The paper analyzes the problem of displacement from the offshore to the nearshore of a polluting surface plume, subject to advection generated by wind-waves and wind-currents. After a...

Morphology of the Southern North Sea Coast from Cape Blanc-Nez (F) to Den Helder (NL)
The southeastern North Sea coast of France, Belgium and the Netherlands (up to Den Helder) is characterized by coastal dunes, sandy beaches and a shallow, gently shoreface. In the Delta...

Coastal Morphological Modeling for the Southern North Sea
The paper gives a inventory of mathematical model concepts for coastal morphological applications, from sophisticated short-term process models based on first physical principles, via...

Planning and Implementation for Sustainable Management of Negombo Lagoon, Sri Lanka
The author narrates how an organized, poor and relatively marginalized set of coastal communities in Sri Lanka have, by collaborating with state agencies and establishing informed dialogue,...

Modified Horton Models for Steady Rainfall
When the rainfall rate is less than the initial infiltration rate, direct application of the well-known Horton equation underestimates the total volume of water infiltrating the soil until...

A Statistical Climate Inversion Scheme and its Application in Hydrologic Impact Assessment Studies Associated with Global Climate Variability
The use of deterministic atmospheric, general circulation models (GCM's) to understand potential global climate change under doubled CO2 forcing...

Flash-Flood Forecasting by Using the HEC1F Model
The application of a lumped conceptual model, the well known HEC1F, for flash-flood forecasting and warning to the Venetikos river basin in Northwestern Greece, is presented. The combination...

Combining Orographic Precipitation and Runoff Models for Improving Reservoir Operations
This paper reports on a study being conducted by the Bureau of Reclamation whose end objectives are improved quantitative precipitation forecast (QPF) for use in hydrologic runoff models...

Modeling Wetland Hydrologic and Hydraulic Processes
Water availability and the processes by which it moves are critical to a wetland's success, where success is measured in terms of the quantity and quality of functions provided by the...

Hydrologic Modelling of Extreme Flood on Small Mountainous Watersheds
Statistical and deterministic methods for extreme flood estimation were applied to Swiss alpine catchments to assess the application limits of each approach. Comparative results produced...

Back to the Unit Hydrograph Method
In this paper, the basic single area unit hydrograph model is shown to represent a highly complex, rational, link-node model which includes (i) variable effective rainfall distributions...

Stochastic Modeling for Drought Analysis Using Thomas-Fiering Lognormal Three Parameter Model
Three variations of Thomas-Fiering log normal 3-parameter(TFLN3) model are fitted to the unregulated south-west monsoon-dependent monthly streamflows measured at Krishnarajasagara (KRS)...

Peaks Over Threshold Model for Seasonal Flood Variations
The peaks over threshold (POT) series model has been used in hydrology to analyse extreme phenomena such as floods or precipitation amounts exceeding a certain threshold level. The results...

Water Quality Modeling of Lower Green Bay
The impact upon water quality of the planned expansion of a confined disposal facility (CDF) located in lower Green Bay was studied using numerical hydrodynamic and water quality models....

Unit Hydrograph Estimation Procedures Using Orthogonal Functions
All unit hydrograph estimation procedures based on orthogonal functions are reviewed in this paper. A more physically based orthogonal function (a gamma function) for unit hydrograph estimation...
