Data Fusion for an ATIS Operational Test: Description and Computational Issues
The ADVANCE project in the Chicago Metropolitan area is the largest operational test of Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) technologies in the U.S. This paper focuses on the process...

Estimation of the Thickness of Transition Zone in Concrete and Characteristics of Transition Zone in High-Strength Concrete

Kent, Edward
In order to perform conservative scour analyses for coastal bridge sites it is necessary to develop realistic hydraulic simulations which provide worst case estimates of depth and velocity....

Analysis of the Torrent Lava Flow Movement and Its Computations - One Example Applied Investigation of Disastrous Torrent Flood
To compute torrent lava flow is hardly an easy task. Most often it has to be determined on the basis of flood traces. In the case of phenomenon discussed, it was the only possible way...

A New Formula for Mean Velocity in Torrents
In this paper we present a new equation for mean velocity in torrents based on travel time measurements and geomorphological relations. Here, the emphasis is not on understanding the physical...

Numerical Modeling of Fluid Mud Transport in Estuaries
The movement of fluid mud has been cited as the most likely cause of rapid sedimentation in channels located in muddy estuaries. A time dependent, two-dimensional laterally-averaged cohesive...

Space-Time Variability of Sediment Suspension in the Nearshore Zone

Corridor Analysis Using QRS II Route 9 Case Study
This traffic modeling project is part of a larger planning study of the Route 9 corridor through the Town of Hadley and parts of Amherst and Northampton. The Pioneer Valley Planning Comission...

Assignment Modeling with Dynamic Traffic Effects
This paper describes the new traffic assignment modeling provided by the Highway analysis component of the TRIPS package. This tackles some fundamental modeling issues regarding the time...

Using Interactive Simulation to Model Driver Behavior Under ATIS
This paper discusses the development and implementation of FASTCARS (Freeway and Arterial Street Traffic Conflict Arousal and Resolution Simulator), an interactive microcomputer based...

Driving Under a Construction Site
Throughout the summer of 1992, vehicles passed unimpeded through one of the most heavily traveled intersections in Los Angeles County as construction proceeded on a concrete light-rail...

Sensitivity and Probabilistic Analyses of Ground Water Travel Time in a Fractured and Variably-Saturated Geologic Medium
This paper presents a method for sensitivity and probabilistic analyses of performance of a hypothetical nuclear waste repository located in a layered, fractured, and variably-saturated...

Effect of Interconnection of Fractures on Dispersion in Flow Through Fractured Networks
A stochastic modeling technique in a 2-D discrete fracture network with two orthogonal sets of fractures is developed to investigate mass transport dispersion and to investigate the relation...

Progress on the U.S. Department of Energy's Issue Resolution Process: A Status Report
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is studying Yucca Mountain, Nevada, to determine its suitability for a mined geologic repository for high-level nuclear waste. In addition to identifying,...

A Comparison of Geostatistically-Based Inverse Techniques for Use in Performance Assessment Analyses at the WIPP Site—Results from Test Case No. 1
The groundwater flow pathway in the Culebra Dolomite aquifer at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) has been identified as a potentially important pathway for radionuclide migration...

Late Quaternary History and Uranium Isotopic Compositions of Ground Water Discharge Deposits, Crater Flat, Nevada
Three carbonate-rich spring deposits are present near the southern end of Crater Flat, NV, approximately 18 km southwest of the potential high-level waste repository at Yucca Mountain....

Stochastic Modelling of Groundwater Flow at the WIPP Site
A stochastic approach to modelling the groundwater flow in the vicinity of the WIPP site in New Mexico is described. A geostatistical model of the transmissivity of the Culebra dolomite...

Managing Reservoir Storage for Instream Flow
Two possible approaches to using a portion of reservoir storage to supply instream flows are 1) to determine a fixed amount to be released each year as minimum instream flows and 2) to...

Time-Dependent Nonlinear Analysis of Cable-Supported Prestressed Concrete Bridges
A method of analysis and a computer program CFRAME for the material and geometric nonlinear analysis of cable-supported planar prestressed concrete bridges including the time-dependent...

The Optimum Parameter Selection for 4-Point Time Domain Integration Schemes
In this paper, a general method of time dimension discretization based on the idea of finite element is presented for dynamic analysis. Two kinds of recurrent formulations are derived...
