Nonuniform Sprinkler Irrigation Application Efficiency
Universal relationships between application efficiency, statistical properties of water distribution pattern, and the application ratio are developed assuming that the application depths...

Flood Frequency Analysis by Power Transformation
In this study, flood peaks are estimated using the power transformation method. This method is preferred as it does not require a priori knowledge of the frequency distribution of the...

Plastic Analysis of Orthotropic Skew Metallic Decks
A solution is developed to predict the structural response of orthotropic skew metallic decks undergoing large deflections into the elastoplastic range leading to their ultimate load-carrying...

Skew Plates in Bending
Skew plate analysis is of considerable importance in a number of branches of engineering. It is, however, invariably difficult, and exact solution of differential equations in skew plate...

Bending of Skew Orthotropic Plate Structures
A series solution has been developed to analyze skew orthotropic plate structures subjected to uniform and concentrated (patch) loads. The analysis was verified and substantiated by tests...

Wet and Dry Periods of Annual Flow Series
A methodology for calculating analytically various probabilities and statistical properties of run lengths of annual hydrological data has been developed and applied to the first-order...

Sprinkler Uniformity Measures and Skewness
The measures of uniformity of sprinkler irrigation like Christiansen's coefficient of uniformity, Wilcox-Swale's coefficient and pattern efficiency has, in the...

Stability of Generally Orthotropic Skew Plate
The effect of changing the orientation of the principal axes of orthotropy of the material on the stability of plates has been considered by Chamis. Using the Galerkin.s Method, he has...

Analysis of Skew Plates with Shear Deformation Using Natural Coordinates
The equations presented in this paper for skew plates admit shear deformation, with the Kirchhoff-Love classical hypothesis replaced by Bernoulli's. This approach leads to...

Thermal Buckling of Restrained Skew Plates
This note considers the buckling problem of skew plates subjected to planar temperature distribution. The edges are assumed to be restrained (i.e., immovable) for in-plane movement, and...

Irregular Supports and Skew Diaphragms of Box Girders
Both bending and torsion generally occur, which cannot be solved together. The approach is based independently as they are coupled on the exact solution of differential equations of bending...

Skew and Elevated Support Effects on Curved Bridges
The live load behavior of curved girder bridge systems has been predicted by various analytical techniques. These techniques, however, are generally limited to radially-supported bridges...

Log-Normal Streamflow Generation Models Reexamined
Data from several Australian rivers are used to examine three monthly log-normal streamflow generation models. The first model is based on Fiering's skewed transformation...

Model Studies of Skew Multicell Girder Bridges
A model study of a series of simply supported skew box girder bridges is presented. The prototype bridge was a four-cell reinforced concrete design, 33 ft, 10 in. (10.31 m) wide, and 4...

Statistical Properties of Wave-Current Force
It is known that when a wave encounters a current, its characteristics change; if the current is in the direction of wave propagation, the wave amplitude decreases and its length increases;...

Finite Element Analysis of Skew Sandwich Plates
An interesting number of structural designs utilize sandwich type construction in the fabrication of major structural components. A high strength to weight ratio is achieved by combining...

Buckling of Simply Supported Skew Plates
The buckling problems of simply supported skew plates with in-plane stresses represented in terms of orthogonal components are considered by using the Rayleigh-Ritz method, employing a...

What Do We Know about Torsion in Concrete Members?
Recent research on torsion in concrete members is reviewed and summarized. Different versions of the skewed bending concept are compared and the effect of web reinforcement and prestress...

Probability Distribution of Annual Droughts
The object herein is to establish a suitable probability distribution for annual droughts of 14-day periods. The approach used was to fit certain theoretical distributions to the observed...

Finite-Difference Convection Errors
Finite-difference methods are making possible more complete mathematical models of aquatic ecosystems than was previously possible with only analytical methods. A basic component of most...
