Energy-Based Modeling of High Damping Rubber Seismic Isolators for Dynamic Analysis

Application of Vertical Turbulence Closure Schemes in the Chesapeake Bay Circulation Model — A Comparative Study

Simulating Evapotranspiration on Semi-Arid Rangelands
Detailed simulations of the surface energy balance using the Simultaneous Heat and Water (SHAW) model were compared with measurements collected at the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed...

An Update on Surface Renewal Estimation of Evapotranspiration
The surface renewal (SR) method for estimating sensible heat flux density (H) has been shown to give good estimates of evapotranspiratiou (ET) when used in an energy balance equation with...

Impact of Sedimentation Caused by Runoff
As water is pumped into a reservoir, sedimentation caused by runoff can be an important factor in the reservoir's storage capacity. This report discusses various studies conducted...

Hazardous Soil Remediation: A Cooperative Effort between Industry and Government
E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company's Antioch Works (Dupont) is on the San Joaquin River 30 miles east of San Francisco, California. For about 25 years, ending in 1981, Dupont...

Aquifer Transmissivity Computations Based on Data from Pump-and-Treat Facilities
Contamination from petroleum hydrocarbons spilled from USTs is a concern in urban areas that depend on shallow unconfined aquifers for their water supply. Studies on the transmissivity...

Reductive Pyrolysis for the Destruction of Chloromethane: A Reaction Pathway Model Based on Thermodynamic and Thermokinetic Considerations
Among various thermal technologies available for the destruction chlorinated hydrocarbons, incineration, catalytic hydrogenation, and pyrolysis are important. Pyrolysis employed under...

A Cost-Effective approach to In Situ Remediation of Soil and Groundwater at a Diesel Fuel Spill Site
A bioventing and groundwater treatment system designed to enhance the natural biodegradation of diesel fuel residuals in soil and prevent further groundwater degradation was installed...

Protecting Drinking Water: Rapid Detection of Human Fecal Contamination, Injured, and Non-Culturable Pathogenic Microbes in Water Systems
The rapid, potentially-automatable extraction of filter retentates has allowed quantitative detection of the unique biomarker for human fecal contamination, coprostanol, and the signature...

Identifying Potential Trophic Relationships and Bioaccumulation Pathways between Fish and Invertebrates
A large ocean monitoring database was used to quantify relationships between demersal fish, epibenthic macroinvertebrates (EMI) and benthic infauna that provide potential pathways for...

Direct Sizing of Small Stormwater Pump Stations
Pump stations are components of stormwater drainage systems that remove collected storm runoff from locations where drainage by gravity is not feasible. Usually pump stations will operate...

Delineating Subsurface Contamination Using Geostatistical and Non-Intrusive Geophysical Methodologies
Electromagnetic (EM) conductivity surveys are becoming a more practiced technique in screening for contamination of soil and groundwater. This non-intrusive geophysical approach detects...

Biodegradation Modeling of a Closed Landfill Site
The two-dimensional model, BIOPLUME II, was applied to the closed Becker County Landfill at Detroit township, Minnesota, to study the transport of hydrocarbons occurring at the site. The...

A Practical Approach to Watershed Sanitary Surveys
A step-by-step approach for conducting watershed sanitary surveys can be successfully applied to watersheds of all sizes. The approach involves preparing a watershed map, contacting regulatory...

Adhesion Kinetics of Fuel Oil #6 and Oil-in-Water Emulsions on Marine Sediments under Turbulent Mixing Conditions
Oil spilled in the marine environment is subject to a great variety of physical, chemical and biological processes, which determine its ultimate fate in the aquatic environment. Many of...
