Pressure-Time Flow Rate in Low Head Hydro Plants
Very few methods are accepted for measuring the flow in the large intakes typical of low head, run-of-the-river hydro plants. These intakes are characteristically short, non-uniform, non-prismatic,...

Simultaneous Flow Visualization and Hot-Film Measurements
High-speed video recording of flow visualizations in the near wall region of a turbulent open channel flow was synchronized with hot-film measurements of flow velocity and bed shear stress...

Non-Intrusive Experimental Setup for Inflatable Dam Models
A method which allows for a non-intrusive evaluation of the dynamic response of the inflatable dams under overflow and impounding water conditions is presented. The internal pressure variations...

A Computer-Controlled, Precision Pressure Standard
The operating principles as well as the technical aspects of the implementation of a precision pressure standard are presented here. The instrument can have dual use: either as a pressure...

Observations on the Growth of an Internal Boundary Layer with a Lidar Technique
The distribution of atmospheric water vapor across a step change in surface humidity (dry-wet) was observed by a Lidar measurement technique under neutral atmospheric stability condition....

Instrumentation Needs and Possibilities: A Dialogue Between Suppliers and Users
The present symposium includes a panel discussion to address and illuminate needs and possibilities in hydraulic instrumentation. The panel discussion is organized with the intent of promoting...

Practical Method for Scour Prediction at Bridge Piers
A practical method is presented for prediction of local scour at bridge piers which is based on a comparison of many well known equations and supported by field data. This equation includes...

Practical Method for Calculating Contraction Scour
Total scour at bridge crossing waterways consists of long-term aggradation or degradation of the streambed, contraction scour and local scour at the piers and abutments. This paper will...

Bridge Scour Instrumentation
This paper presents a brief status report of research funded by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP Project 21-3, Instrumentation for Measuring Scour at Bridge Piers...

Effects of Flow Duration on Local Scour at Bridge Piers in New York
The relation of local scour to the duration of high flows and other hydraulic properties is being studied at 31 bridge sites in New York State. Clear-water scour is common at most of the...

Kent, Edward
In order to perform conservative scour analyses for coastal bridge sites it is necessary to develop realistic hydraulic simulations which provide worst case estimates of depth and velocity....

Hydrodynamic Modeling of San Diego Bay
A two-dimensional vertically-averaged finite element model was adapted to study the hydrodynamics of San Diego Bay. The hydrodynamic model was interfaced with pre- and post-processors...

GLFSVIEW - GLFS Product Viewing Application
GLFSVIEW is a menu-driven Visual Basic application running under MicroSoft Windows. This application allows quick downloading, browsing, printing and display of two-dimensional data maps...

Impact of GOES Data on Surface Heat Flux Predictions
Surface heat flux is the required input for the Great Lakes Forecasting System (GLFS) in order to predict three dimensional temperature structure of the Great Lakes. Since the flux is...

Short-Term Forecasts for Lake Erie
Short-term forecasts for Lake Erie were generated by coupling a mesoscale atmospheric prediction system with a lake forecast system. The modeling systems used were The Pennsylvania State...

Nonlinearity and Free-Surface Flow
The Dupuit-Forchheimer (D-F) assumption is commonly considered a viable design criterion for water resources projects and, consequently, Darcy law is used to determine the locus of free...

Verification of Lake Superior Outflow Equations
The outflow from Lake Superior, the largest volume freshwater lake in the world, is regulated by the International Lake Superior Board of Control in accordance with the Treaty of 1909...

Force and Pressure Measurements in Spillway Plunge Pools
Plunge pools are often used to dissipate energy from high head spillways with flip bucket terminal structures. Conventional design of plunge pools has been based on a program of mobile...

Verification of a Three-Dimensional Model of Delaware Bay
A three-dimensional numerical hydrodynamic model of Delaware Bay is being developed to assess the impact of deepening the navigation channel from near the mouth of Delaware Bay to the...

A Three-Dimensional Numerical Simulation of Seasonal Flow and Salt Transport in the C&D Canal
Two seasonal-scale, three-dimensional hydrodynamic models with salt transport using CH3D-WES were constructed to represent the most critical periods of environmental concern: fishery spawning...
