Viaduct
This concrete box girder viaduct, an Award of Merit in the 1984 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement competition, helps complete a seven mile gap in the Blue Ridge Parkway in North...

Prediction of Dam Overtopping Due to Mudflows
The eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980 resulted in a small mudflow into Swift reservoir, which is located immediately south of the mountain. An engineering/geologic study was...

SCS Water Supply Forecasting Opportunities
SCS personnel have been surveying the mountain snowpack, collecting other hydrometeorological data, and providing water supply forecasts to users for nearly 50 years. Recently, the snow...

The SNOTEL Data Acquisition System Design, Operation, and Uses
The Soil Conservation Service (SCS), U. S. Department of Agriculture, coordinates measurement of the winter snowpack in the Rockies, Sierra Nevada, Cascades, and other major mountain ranges...

Current Status of Urban Hydrology in Venezuela
Rapid population growth and the concentration of almost 40% of the total population (1981 Census) in the narrow valleys of the northern mountain ranges, a tropical climate with a very...

Geotechnical Considerations of Las Vegas Valley

Estimating Underground Power Station Costs
Planners involved in evaluating pumped-storage alternatives found the capital cost of the underground powerstation directly related to the installed capacity. Estimates for three underground...

Dispersion in Tumbling Flow
Steep mountain streams are often in the tumbling flow regime, that is alternating sub- and super-critical flow with energy dissipation caused mainly by sudden changes in slope and cross...

Dispersion in Mountainous Natural Stream
A chronological and critical review is made of existing methods for predicting coefficients and the area of the longitudinal turbulent dispersion, which were chosen by their importance...

Origin of Step-Pool Systems in Mountain Streams
Mountain streams very often present a step-pool aspect. Antidune formation alone; dispersion and sorting theory or velocity reversal as advocated for the origin of riffle-pool sequences...
