GIS Analysis of Routes for Transportation of Hazardous Materials

A GIS Based Synthetic Watershed Sediment Routing Model
For most watersheds, extensive water quality data are not available. Land use, topographic, edaphic and meteorological information is generally available; but without extensive water quality...

A Multi-objective Criteria Analysis for Alternative Route Planning
A multi-objective criteria analysis was used to identify a proposed rail spur route with the optimal combination of low environmental impact, favorable engineering characteristics and...

A Chance Constrained Optimization Model Using Kinematic Wave Routing for Stormwater Infrastructure Rehabilitation
A chance constrained optimization model is presented to determine efficient long-term replacement strategies for segments of stormwater drainage systems. The model is multiobjective in...

BRASS Modeling of Loíza Reservoir, Puerto Rico, for Sediment Management Operations
Loiza reservoir, the principal water supply for metropolitan San Juan, delivers 3.5 m3/s (80 mgd) to the Sergio Cuevas filter plant. Sedimentation...

Transportation of Radioactive Materials Routing Analysis: The Nevada Experience
In 1987, the Nevada State Legislature passed a Bill requiring the Nevada Department of Transportation to develop and enforce a plan for highway routing of highway route controlled quantity...

An Approach to Evaluate the Sufficiency of Highway Bridges for Nuclear Spent Fuel Transportation
The transportation of radioactive spent fuel can have a significant impact on bridge structures located on designated routes. Due to the critical nature of the cargo and because of the...

Transportation Access to Yucca Mountain: Critical Issues
Transportation planning for a repository at Yucca Mountain is complicated because of uncertainty about the modes and numbers of nuclear waste shipments and because of uncertainty about...

Being Responsive and Getting the Job Done Right
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project Office (YMSCPO) has been given the responsibility for characterization of the potential repository...

A Community-Focused Routing and Siting Model for Hazardous Materials and Wastes
A model is presented that shippers, carriers and policy-makers can use to analyze routing problems for hazardous materials or routing-and-siting problems for wastes. Unlike many other...

Evaluation of Hazardous Material Transportation by Rail
ALK Associates Inc. of Princtron, NJ has developed a computer model, the Rail Hazardous Materials Routing System, which provides historical accident rate and population exposure statistics...

A Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Approach for Selecting Routes: Case Study of Hazardous Waste Transportation in Arizona
The study objective was to provide an approach to selecting routes to a proposed hazardous waste treatment and storage facility, based on a risk and vulnerability assessment. Probability...

StateGEN/StateNET and DOT Guidelines: Tools for Highway Routing of Hazardous Materials
Under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Energy Office, of Defense Programs, Sandia National Laboratories' Transportation Technology Center has developed computerized...

Computer-Assisted Risk Assessment of Dangerous Goods Transportation for Haute-Normandie
To assess the 'best' routes for the transport of dangerous goods in an area of 600 km2 in France, software based on a geographical information system to manage,...

Atlantic Salmon Smolt Movement and Behavior at Vernon Hydroelectric Station
Behavior of emigrating Atlantic salmon smolts (Salmo salar) was studied at New England Power Company's (NEP) Vernon Hydroelectric Station located on the Connecticut River,...

A Study of a Flood Control Levee Swamp System
In an attempt to reconstruct the events of the more than 100-year 1987 New Year's Eve storm that occurred on Oahu, Hawaii, an analysis of a complicated overland flow phenomenon...

Numerical Methods for Simulating Debris Blockage Failures and Mudflows
This paper presents the procedures and results from an investigation to evaluate the hydraulic characteristics of mudflow events resulting from hypothetical failures of a debris blockage...

Routing for Lake and Tidal Canal Drainage System
A routing method is presented for lake and tidal canal interconnected drainage system in coastal urban areas. Combing reservoir routing, channel routing, and discharge computation of the...

Combined Application of HEC-1 and HEC-2 Simulation Models in Dike Safety Analysis
The potential flood impact of a breach in a dike for a large spreading-area on a nearby waste storage facility was investigated. An HEC-1 model was used for generating breach hydrographs...
