Estimating the Return Period of Multiyear Droughts
Characterizing the return period of hydrologic events has been an important subject in water resources planning and management studies for many decades. The alternative approach has been...

Stochastic Analysis of the Truckee River Flow System
The Truckee River system is a complex system that involves a number of hydraulic structures such as natural and artificial lakes and reservoirs and diversions. Streamflow data have been...

Reconstructed With Precision
Rehabilitating a heavily traveled crossing while traffic continues to flow is a complicated endeavor. Add the attention to detail required to preserve the character of a historic 1920's...

What Is Hydraulic Engineering?
This paper, written to mark ASCE's 150th anniversary, traces the role of hydraulic engineering from early or mid-twentieth-century to the beginning of the twenty-first century....

Unleashing the Flow
A 70-year-old, two-lane roadway that stretches from Miami to Tamp Bay is impeding the flow of water through the Everglades. By studying eight possible solutions in detail, engineers determined...

Impact of Ground Water Management on the Hydropattern of Wetlands
In this paper, we examine the effect of altering the pumping rates of a large municipal well field, on the hydropattern of the near by PENSUCO wetland. A flow model developed earlier using...

Environmental Fluid Mechanics
Theories and Applications
Sponsored by the Fluids Committee of the Engineering Mechanics Division of ASCE. This report provides environmental engineers with a comprehensive...

Physical Model of Current-Induced Scour at Ventura Harbor
This paper describes a 1:25-scale movable-bed physical model study of scour resulting from longshore current passing through a narrow gap on the leeside of the detached breakwater at Ventura...

Application of a SonTek Argonaut Side-Looking (SL) Doppler Flow Meter for Measuring Discharge on the Southern Leg of the Parana' River at the Entrance to the Itaipu Binacional Reservoir, Parana', Brasil
Index-velocity and water level data collected with a SonTek Argonaut Side-Looking (SL) Doppler Flow Meter and channel cross-sectional area data were used to compute total discharge on...

An Aggressive I/I Abatement Program is Underway as Part of Vallejos Wet Weather Program
The Vallejo Sanitation and Flood Control District (VSFCD) is undertaking an aggressive pilot program to control wet weather flows and eliminate sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) that are...

The Determination of Velocity Spectra and Dissipation by Direct and Indirect Means using Second-Order Accurate PIV
In this paper we present a 2 nd order accurate technique in space (following Wereley & Meinhart's (2001) extension of Cowen & Monismith's (1997) dynamic sub-window PIV...

Mixing of a Turbulent Jet in Crossflow - The Advected Line Puff

Fluid Flows and Reactive Chemical Transport in Variably Saturated Subsurface Media

Erosion from an Industrial Forest Road in the Ouachita Mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma
Erosion from 4 segments of a 2-year old forest road in a 740 ha basin was measured for each of 105 storms that occurred in a 3.5 year period. Two road segments were part of a mid-slope...

Stochastic Simulation of the Colorado River Flows Using SAMS
The main purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the applicability of SAMS to the Colorado River system. For this purpose we have utilized monthly data at 29 sites in the basin....

Shape of Storm Pollutograph from the Four Different Rural Watersheds
(Abstract only) Just as a hydrograph describes the flow rate of water for a storm event, a pollutograph shows the rate at which pollutants dissolved or suspended in the runoff are transported....

Using Tracer Response Curves to Quantify Hydraulic and Channel Complexity of Prairie Creek, Northwestern California: Implications for Over Wintering Habitat for Juvenile Coho Salmon
This study measured and compared aspects of channel structural complexity with hydraulic complexity at a range of flows including winter storm flows. Five 200-meter reaches containing...

Investigation of Flood Protection from Alluvial Fan Flows and Minimizing Impacts to a Sensitive Habitat Preserve: Whitewater River Basin, Coachella Valley, California
The study describes and evaluates (1) the baseline conditions to hydrology, hydraulics, wind transport of sand, sediment transport by fluvial process, the environment, economics, and (2)...

Spatial Decision Support System for River Basin Management
MODSIM is a generalized river basin network flow model designed to simultaneously assure that water resources are allocated according to physical, hydrogeological, and institutional/administrative...
