Stormwater Routing for Small Sites
Traditional hydrologic analyses and detention design procedures are too time consuming and costly to be warranted for small projects. This paper discusses a direct solution for sizing...

State Space Approach to Flood Stage Estimation
A flood routing and stage prediction model is developed using the techniques of State Space and Kalman filtering. The governing equation is the physically based hydrologic method of flood...

A Micro-Computer Simulation Model Based on South African Hydrology
This paper presents the development of a micro-computer compatible hydrological simulation model wherein an attempt has been made to satisfy some of the modelling needs in South Africa....

Microcomputer Applications in Flood Management
Historically Salt Lake City has been subject to flooding from spring snow melt runoffs. Even though the volume and the rate of runoffs were similar during both years, the 1984 runoff created...

Flood Routing Through Rock Dumps in Natural Channels
The paper deals with flow through rockfill to analyze the problem of flood routing through large masses of waste rock from mining operations dumped in natural channels. Rock dumps in ephemerous...

The Matched Artificial Dispersivity Method
The paper presents a class of models that are well-suited for microcomputing and that are based on what may be called the 'Matched Aritifical Dispersivity' method....

Salt Lake City Flood Experiences
Salt Lake City experienced snowmelt floods during 1983 and 1984. Peaks during these years were very high with many historic records being set in both years. Different and unique problems...

Microcomputer Route Performance Monitoring
A performance monitoring system, properly implemented, can significantly aid a transit system's ability to operate efficient and effective services. The Capital District Transportation...

Rail and Road Traffic Continue During Bridge Modification
The crossing of Route 15 under the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad Bridge, Bangor, Maine had limited sight distance and marginal clearances. Maine Department of Transportation, therefore,...

Consideration of Meandering in Channelization Projects: Selected Observations and Judgements

Landform-Based Characterization of Soil Properties
A probabilistic characterization of site soil properties can be achieved with sparse site-specific data by augmenting them with data available from other sites in the region having the...

Numerical Flood Routing for Natural Channels
A numerical model has been developed for simulating the propagation of a flood wave in a natural channel. Using this numerical model, the influence of the factors affecting the motion...

Upper Hudson River Valley Dam Break Model
In order to determine areas of inundation due to the failure of Conklingville Dam, a dam break analysis was performed, and the resulting outflow hydrograph was routed through the downstream...

Applications of Point-Slope Reservoir Routing
The point-slope method of routing flood flow through a reservoir uses point functions rather than the time incremental functions of conventional methods. It can be used to give an accurate...

Flood Routing on a Small Computer
A BASIC program is developed to route flood discharge through a system of river channels and reservoirs. The brevity of this program and the use of an overlaid computational matrix make...
