Reliability-Based Estimates of Wetland Detention Times for Wastewater Treatment
Determination of the hydraulic residence or detention time is often the first step in design of wetlands constructed for wastewater treatment. Current methods for estimating wetland detention...

Hydro Plant Modernization and Uprating
The paper suggests that the method to achieve desirable hydropower benefits at costs lower than for new thermal projects, is through systematic modernization and upgrading of older hydro...

Estimating Landfill Leachate: A Modeling Approach

Hydraulic Weighing Lysimeter Measurement Errors
A prototype size lysimeter was studied in the laboratory to determine accuracy and sources of error that might be caused by variable pillow contact area, temperature changes in various...

Farm Irrigation Rating Index (FIRI)—A Procedure to Evaluate Both Irrigation Systems and Management
The Soil Conservation Service USDA/SCS, concentrates it's technical assistance to cooperators on improvements of on-farm irrigation systems and improvements of water management...

An Analytical Technique of Flow Rate Into Perforated Draintubes
The flow rate into a draintube in a saturated soil media depends on numerous characteristics such as the hole size, the number and spacing of holes, the drain size and depth. Based on...

Phosphorus Transport from Delaware's Rural Watershed
Phosphorus loads were estimated for 62 watersheds. Major land uses in the watersheds were cropland and forestland. Annual phosphorus loads varied from 0.42 to 1.19 kg/ha. Watersheds with...

Flexible Supply Schedule Missing Link for Effective Surface Irrigation and Automation
Surface irrigation methods - furrow and border-strip are generally thought of as being inefficient and labor intensive. Careful evaluations have shown that as methods they can be very...

Predicting Incipient Fluidization of Fine Sands in Unbounded Domains
Fluidization systems in the coastal environment consist of a water pumping system and a source pipe buried in or near a tidal inlet to maintain a channel or to aid in sand bypassing. If...

Sediment Transport Measurements in the Nile River at Bani Mazar
Measurements of sediment transport on the Nile River were conducted at Bani Mazar (200 km South of Cairo) during high and low water stages. Bed-load and suspended-load transport rates...

Flood Control Design for Development on Alluvial Fans
Hydrology, debris production, sediment transport and hydraulic studies were conducted to provide flood control for a development within an alluvial fan floodplain. Innovative techniques...

Existing U.S. Standards in Hydraulic Engineering
The Task Committee on Recommendations for Standards in Hydraulics confined itself to topics that are used in hydraulic computations or design. Thus numerous standards related to size,...

Design of a Self-Regulating Flap Gate
The objective of the research reported here is to improve the design of a flap gate whose function is to maintain a constant upstream water level over a wide range of flow rates. The self-regulating...

Correlation of Fractional Foam Coverage with Gas Transport Rates
Because breaking waves are believed to increase the flux of gases across the air/sea interface, it may be possible to correlate air/sea gas transport velocities with whitecap coverage....

Experiment on the Efficiency of an Aspirator-Blower Type Aerator
An aspirator-blower type aerator was designed and tested successfully for small lake application. The experiment showed that significant amount of air flow can be generated by the aspirator...

Landing on Frictionless Surfaces
Who in his right mind would deliberately land an airplane on a frictionless surface? Unfortunately, professional pilots occasionally encounter situations where the friction between rubber...

Analysis of Bridge Maintenance and Rating Procedures
In the United States, bridges are routinely rated to evaluate their existing conditions. The formula used to evaluate bridges is called the Sufficiency Rating Formula. The formula uses...

Reliability Assessment and Reliability-Based Rating of Existing Road Bridges
A practical reliability model for the safety assessment and rating of existing R.C. bridges are developed by explicitly incorporating the degree of deterioration and damages based on available...

One-Dimensional Radionuclide Transport Under Time-Varying Conditions
New analytical and numerical solutions are presented for one-dimensional radionuclide transport under time-varying fluid-flow conditions including radioactive decay. The analytical solution...
