Probabilistic Characteristics of Elapsed Time Between Rainfalls
The elapsed time between rainfalls is analyzed statistically using the hourly rain data at two locations: the flat-plain at Urbana, Illinois and the northwestern Appalachian foothills...

Numerical Solution of Transient Closed-Conduit Flow Equations by the Method of Lines Along Characteristics
The method of characteristics has long been considered as a natural technique for solving transient closed-conduit problems. In this paper, by using the concept of the method of lines,...

Connecticut I-95 Incident Management System
Strategies for minimizing the impact of freeway incidents on traffic flow/congestion are reffered to as 'incident management'. The incident management process involves the following: reducing...

Integrating Waiting Time in the Design of a Transportation System for Short to Intermediate Distances
This paper addresses passenger perceptions of short to medium distance public transportation systems. The concept of the weighted total transportation time (WTTT) is introduced, integrating...

Short-Distance Transportation Systems in Japan
Short-distance transportation systems are getting public attention as a means of urban transportation as well as a tool of urban development. This paper briefly describes the current situation...

Time-Dependent Behavior
This paper is a report of the material presented at the International Workshop on Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Concrete, Session 4 - Time Dependent Behavior, held at Columbia...

Transit Times Through Compacted Clay Liners
Transit time, or time taken by waste liquid to move through the thickness of the liner, is a short-term performance parameter which can be used to determine the necessary liner thickness....

Time-Dependent Landslide Probability Mapping
Case studies where time of failure is known for rainfall-triggered debris flows can be used to estimate the parameters of a hazard model in which the probability of failure is a function...

Transportation Engineering Basics
Transportation Engineering Basics covers twelve of the most fundamental aspects of transportation engineering. This book presents practical...

Uncertainty and Sensitivity Results for Pre-Waste-Emplacement Groundwater Travel Time

Time Series Prediction Using Neural Networks

Life in the Fast Track
Through innovative financing and skillful construction management, Oklahoma is proving that transportation megaprojects are still possible, even during an economic downturn. The result...

Automating The Corps
Automated soil testing machines solved several problems at once for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' South Western Division Laboratory in Dallas, Texas. The machines replaced...

Pattern Formation and Time-Dependence in Flowing Sand
The authors present results for a number of experiments on flowing granular materials and a novel cellular automata model for the flow of these materials when the grains are long and thin....

Space-Time Characterization for Resource Management on Construction Sites

Analyzing Fast-Food Drive-Up Window Site Impacts
Peak-period queueing at a fast-food restaurant drive-up window was observed. The study found that queueing behavior equations based on random arrivals and service times overestimated the...

A Graphical Post-Processor for CE-QUAL-W2
A directly linked graphical post-processor has been developed for the Corps of Engineers' CE-QUAL-W2 (W2) Model. The post-processor allows the quick visualization and verification of the...

A Numerical Model Simulation of Tidal Currents in Long Island and Block Island Sounds
A case study evaluating the predictive capability of a hydrodynamic model of Long Island Sound is presented. The model is a time dependent, three-dimensional, primitive equation, estuarine...

FE Analysis of Time-Dependent Instability of Cut Slopes in Clay Shale

Integrated Software for Transportation Emissions Analysis
As the air pollution problem in the major metropolitan areas of the United States has increased, new interest has emerged for greater accuracy in the estimation of emissions from mobile...
