Detention Basin Design to Control Flood Volumes
A desk-top method is presented for hydraulic design of detention basins. The main objective is to control the flood volume rather than the peak discharge. The method is based on the pre-determined...

Rainfall-Runoff Modeling in a Small Urban Watershed
Knights Branch watershed is located in Dallas, Texas, and it covers an area of about 5 mi2 (13 km2). Due to...

Channel Routing Effects on Unit Hydrograph Shape
Channel routing effects on hydrograph shape and the interpretation of downstream unit hydrographs are examined. A new dimensionless routing parameter is presented....

Using Real-Time Location Information for Hazardous Materials Shipments
Real-time location information on shipments of hazardous materials can be used to update routing decisions while the shipments are in transit. The effects of unforeseen delays, accidents...

Routing Based on Anticipated Travel Times
The routing of drivers based on anticipated as well as instantaneous link travel times has presented route guidance system developers with an opportunity to achieve additional IVHS benefits...

The Contribution of Dynamic Route Guidance and Information Systems to More Efficient Traffic Management
The environmental and traffic-related problems expected as a result of the continued increase in motorization require new solutions if our towns and cities are to survive and their attractiveness...

Individual Traffic Information and Route Guidance from RDS-TMC Until Beacon Communication
A complete system of traffic management consisting of both collective and individual components is described. As a result of German and European initiatives problems, a system introduction...

Selecting Preferred Routes for Highway Route Controlled Quantity Shipments of Radioactive Materials
The amount of spent nuclear fuel move in the U.S. in recent years has increased due to a number of government actions. One such action was the passage of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act which...

Optimal Route Selection for High Level Nuclear Waste Transport Based Upon Radiological Risk
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate route optimization based directly upon the minimization of radiological risk as computed from local conditions. An operational impact analysis...

Comparative Analyses of Spent Nuclear Fuel Transport Modal Options
The movement of nuclear waste can be accomplished by various transport modal options involving different types of vehicles, transport casks, transport routes, and intermediate intermodal...

The Application of Microcomputers to Site Location Planning for Emergency Services
The paper presents an overview of the application of FIRE-ROUTER, a microcomputer package designed to assist in fire station location planning. Subjects covered include route finding,...

Scheduling Fixed Route Bus Services Using Simulation
The paper discusses the development and applications of a Monte Carlo simulation Program (BUS - MONITOR) for estimating and evaluating the quality of service of fixed route, many to many...

Computer Analysis of Origin-Destination Survey Data in the State Route 55 Travel Corridor, Before and After the Opening of Carpool Lanes
The State Route (SR) 55 carpool lanes in Orange County were opened for high occupancy vehicles (HOV) usage in November, 1985. Since SR 55 was the first travel corridor in Orange County...

ROTO—A Continuous Water and Sediment Routing Model
A model called ROTO was developed to estimate water and sediment yields on large basins (several thousand square miles). ROTO is a continuous model operating on a daily time step that...

Entrenched Channels and Alluvial Fan Flooding
Because the individual flood paths on alluvial fans are unpredictable, determining flood hazards on such landforms is hindered by particular complications. The proper framework in which...

Two-Dimensional Modeling of Alluvial Fan Flows
A two-dimensional, flood routing model FLO-2D has been developed to route water and mudflows over unconfined surfaces. It predicts flow velocities and depths at discrete points for channel...

Multi-Date Image Analyses Used for Determining Flood Area Impacts in the Saginaw River Basin, Michigan
During the months of September and October 1986, a series of storms swept across the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. These heavy downpours caused $400 million worth of flood damages. Significant...

Application of the Generalized Channel Routing Model
Using the linear full dynamic finite difference model the applicability of diffusion and kinematic wave models is investigated. Two dimensionless numbers are suggested for applicable range...

An Investigation of Continuity Equation and Flood Routing
In this paper, a flood routing scheme, which gives consideration to the advantages of both the Muskingum method and the unit hydrograph method, is derived by using the continuity equation...

A Generalized Diffusion Wave Flood Routing Model
A generalized diffusion wave model for flood routing is presented. The model can incorporate detailed data on natural cross sections and river bed geometry. An accurate numerical method...
