Hydraulic Effects of Habitat Structures in Flood Control Channels
Three field sites have been established and laboratory flume experiments begun to assess the effect of habitat enhancement measures on water-surface profiles and local scour in flood control...

On Conductivity of Soils with Preferential Flow Paths
Laboratory soil column experiments were conducted to study the distribution of preferential flow paths resulting from removal of colloidal size clay particles. These experiments specifically...

Stormwater Management Plan Updated for Climate System Changes
When large watershed stormwater management plans are updated, climate system change factors due to global warming effects should be considered. Climate system changes may cause changes...

Expected Moments Alogrithms for Flood Frequency Analysis
The Expected Moments Algorithm (EMA) is a new but conceptually simple approach for the treatment of nontraditional data in flood frequency analysis. Nontraditional data includes censored...

Drift Apex Temperature Distributions due to Cylindrical Heat Sources

Long Term Prediction of Far-Field Heat Conduction

Numerical Modeling of Water Flow over Porous Media
The momentum transport phenomena at the interface of porous media and fluid are numerically investigated. The single domain approach is used with matching boundary conditions; i.e., the...

Modeling the Impact of Uncertainty in Spatial Variability of Estuarine Boundary Conditions
Multi-dimensional numerical estuarine models that consider baroclinic forcing require the specification of both the water surface and the water density (salinity and temperature) at the...

Distributions of Return Flow in Navigable Waterways
Physical impacts of barge traffic on the riverine environment have drawn increasing attention from resource managers of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Return flow, which can...

Automated Tools for Spatially Distributed Rainfall/Runoff Modeling
A watershed modeling system (WMS) has been developed to address the needs of surface water rainfall/runoff computer simulations. WMS, developed at the Engineering Computer Graphics Laboratory...

Development of a Hydrologic Model with Both Spatially Distributed and Physically Based Capabilities
A distributed hydrologic model is developed at The Pennsylvania State University for use with rasterized data bases. The purpose of the Terrestrial Hydrologic Model or THM is to investigate...

Runoff Computation Using Spatially Distributed Terrain Parameters
A spatially distributed unit hydrograph is developed based on linear system theory applied to subareas or cells within a watershed Each cell has a unique unit response function independent...

Simulation of Catchment Response Using RC Network
This paper describes a simple physically-based distributed parameter hydrologic model of catchment response using a network of capacitors and resistors. The effect of topography is modeled...

Tributary No. 9 Restoration, Maryland State Highway Administration
The Maryland State Highway Administration agreed to accomplish restoration of 1,100 feet of stream channel as part of a mitigation agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore...

Estimation of High Spring Floods Causing Inundation in Non-Studied Rivers of the West Siberian Plain
Spring flooding is the main and the most abounding in water period in flow regime of West Siberian rivers. As a result, there is powerful and wide inundation on relief of West Siberia....

Direct Measurement of Turbulence Structures in a Standard Jar Test Tank Using PIV System
Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is applied to the measurement of instantaneous two-dimensional velocity fields in a standard 2-liter jar test tank for several different impeller speeds....

An Economy and Risk Analysis of Installed Capacity Expansion at the Three Gorges Power Plant
This paper studies the possibility and economy of peak-regulation operation during flood period at the Three Gorges reservoir, which will at the same time satisfy the requirements for...

Comprehensive Modelling of Water Distribution Networks
An analyst of a water distribution systems must frequently contend with a host of problems with very different time scales. Traditionally, such concerns have been accommodated by having...

Reducing Model Study Time and Improving Reliability
Historically, the majority of effort expended in computer modeling of physical systems has gone into the numerical algorithms used in the computer programs. Other aspects of modeling have...

Equity Measures for Selecting Sustainable Projects
Once implemented, a project may result in social, ecological, and economic impacts on both spatially and temporally distributed groups. Sustainable project selection requires that distributional...
