Three-Dimensional Simulation of Two-Fluid Movement in Porous Media Using the Boundary Element Method
The paper discusses three-dimensional problems that include a denser fluid overlain by water in an unconfined aquifer. The two fluid regions are bounded by two-dimensional surfaces, including...

Measurement of Hydraulic Conductivity Variation
For a confined, sandy aquifer, the dependence of the horizontal hydraulic conductivity on the vertical coordinate has been measured using single-well tracer injection/recovery experiments....

Ground-water Modeling on Small Computers: Past, Present, and Future
The paper reports on research that concerns the possible development of numerical models being able to simulate practical cases of Oil Spill Migration (OSPIM) in soils. Such models can...

Constitutive Theories for Solids with Defective Microstructure
The nonlinear mechanical response of solids is a macroscopic manifestation of the irreversible changes in its microstructure. The most common modes of the irreversible microstructural...

Boundary Element Analysis of Flow in Heterogenous Porous Media
The boundary integral equation method (BIEM) is an efficient numerical method which has been applied to a wide variety of engineering problems governed by a partial differential equation...

Reduction of Intake Flow Due to Ice Rubbling and Consolidation
Numerous seawater intakes have been designed for Arctic Coastal Waters. In these areas moving ice often causes rubbling and pile up of broken ice pieces against the shore. If this forms...

Research in Hydraulics at California Institute of Technology
Activities are centered in the W. M. Keck Laboratory of Hydraulics and Water Resources. Research projects active at the Laboratory reflect a continuing commitment to traditional areas...
