Probability and Impact of an Observed Rare Sequence of Floods
Accordingly, it may be concluded that the severity of the recorded sequence would be exceeded in about 2.1 percent of future sequences, or have about one chance in 45 or 50 of being exceeded...

New York Bight Three-Dimensional Water Quality Model
The numerical modeling technology developed for Chesapeake Bay was applied to the Middle Atlantic Bight extending 550 km form Cape May, NJ, northeasterly to Nantucket Island, MA, and extending...

Design Implications for Concrete Pavements from LTPP Analyses
Among the original objectives of the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) study of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) were the evaluation of existing design methods for pavements,...

Development of a Mathematical Model for Prediction of Shad Population Growth on the Susquehanna River

Modeling of River Ice Processes for Hydropower Facilities in Cold Regions

Characterization of Man-Made Vitreous Fibers by Image Analysis
This paper deals with the characterization of man-made vitreous fibers (MMVF), seen as an application of the techniques of image analysis and mathematical morphology. We present the whole...

Morphological Methods for Characterizing Inter-feature Distances
Characterizing inter-feature distances in digital images using automatic image analysis systems presents problems not found when quantifying the morphology of the features themselves....

Optimal Region Aggregation with Shape Considerations in Spatial Optimization
The region aggregation (land acquisition) problem is discussed within the context of a regular grid matrix having representative cell indices or attribute values. Several optimization...

Finite Element Analysis of Slabs-on-Grade Using Higher Order Subgrade Soil Models
Incorporation of the two-parameter, Kerr and Zhemochkin-Sinitsyn-Shtaerman subgrade models into finite element code ILLI-SLAB is described. The two conventional idealizations, namely the...

Mathematical Modeling of Airport Pavements
Theories for analyzing rigid pavements are presented. The emphasis is on the choice of the proper models for the pavement and for the subgrade, and on the correct mathematical formulation...

Heavy Aircraft Damage to Rigid Airport Pavements
A theoretical solution is presented for the damage caused by heavy aircraft at the transverse joints in a rigid airport pavement. Large stresses in the subgrade generate significant permanent...

Concept of a Polycentric Metropolitan Area with Automated People-Movers
The general equation of mobility is used to understand the development of urban systems. Using iterative methods it is shown that the town planning criterion used currently gives rise...

Piles for Marquette University Math Building
This paper presents a comparison of static pile capacity predictions using CPT cone resistance results with results of a test pile program and production pile driving. Pile capacity prediction...

The Transistor Psychrometer: A New Instrument for Measuring Soil Suction
The transistor psychrometer is the latest instrument available for the measurement of soil moisture suction. It has been developed over a number of years and is very similar in operation...

A feasibility study for a Concrete Core Tomographer
This is a study of the feasibility of applying computer tomography in the study of concrete cores. A laboratory protocol is presented for testing concrete cores using a medical - grade...
