Prediction of Occurrence and Runoff Analysis of Debris Flow
A debris flow will occur on a slope when the rainfall exceeds a certain value determined by the hydraulic, geological and topographic properties of the slope. To estimate this critical...

Oxygenation Experiments in the Wave Breaking Zone
Experiments on oxygenation due to waves breaking on a uniformly sloping beach were carried out at the laboratory of Harbor Works, National Technical University of Athens. The influence...

Uncertainty Analysis of the FEMA Method for Alluvial Fans
Distributary flow areas such as alluvial fans, bajadas, and alluvial slopes, and alluvial plains along mountain bases pose quite different and interesting problems for the design of hydraulic...

Horizontal Gradients in Sigma Transformed Bathymetries with Steep Bottom Slopes
Simulation of free surface flow and transport in areas such as seas, estuaries and river is often based upon three-dimensional modelling systems. Common characteristics of these modelling...

Structure of Coastal Upwelling on a Sloping Bottom
A large eddy simulation of coastal upwelling on a sloping bottom is carried out. The structure of the upwelling consists of a persistent primary front, a temporary secondary front which...

Synthetic Geogrid Reinforces Existing Earth Dam Embankments

Providing People-Mover Access for the Getty Center
An Otis People-Mover System was selected by The Getty Trust to transport visitors to The New Getty Center Museum for the Arts from an entry parking area up a steep hillside to the museum...

Site Characterization for Probabilistic Analysis and Design of Highway Slopes

Carbon Isotopic Data from Test Hole USW UZ-1, Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Rock-CO2-gas analyses in test hole USW UZ-1 at Yucca Mountain indicate that gas movement in the unsaturated zone is likely through a dry-fracture...

Reactive Irrigation Scheduling for Sloping Furrow Irrigation
We developed a technique for estimating the proportion of the applied irrigation water that is effective when using furrow irrigation. To apply the method, irrigators would need to know...

Wave Boundary Layer Above the Submerged Coastal Slope
A calculation method of parameters of turbulent boundary layer formed by waves is proposed. A calculation of boundary layer on a rough slope with inclination typical for steep Caucasian...

Stable Slopes of Alluvial Channels
An alluvial channel responds to the variation in the incoming sediment by changing its cross-section and especially the slope. Regime relations formulated by Lacey (1930) and many subsequent...

Hourly Reference Evapotranspiration by Bowen Ratio and Penman Methods
Hourly and daily reference evapotranspiration (ETo) computed from Bowen ratio energy balance (BREB) measurements were compared with ETo estimated from the hourly Penman equation (ETP)....

The Use of Residence Time to Describe a Hillslope
Queueing theory has been applied to the determination of Soil Water Residence Time (SWRT) using an 18 year data set. The calculated SWRTs agree qualitatively with the lags exhibited by...

Sediment Deposition from Debris Flow on a Gentle and Wide Slope
Motion of sediment grains in the deposition process from debris flow on a gentle and wide slope was examined. A model of the deposition was presented on the basis of an analysis of grain...

WSPRO Files for Slope-Area Computations

Stability and Performance of Slopes and Embankments II
This proceedings, Stability and Performance of Slopes and Embankments II, consists of papers presented at the Specialty Conference sponsored...

Simulation of Nonlinear Wave Runup on Steep Impermeable Slopes
A numerical scheme is developed to simulate the propagation of second-order Stokes waves in a two-dimensional channel and the runup of these waves on an impermeable slope. The waves are...

Stability of Accropode(R) and Comparison with Parallelepipedic Block
This paper describes the tests which were performed on physical models with irregular waves, to determine the hydraulic stability of the Accropode(R)...

The Physiography and Engineering Constraints of the Continental Slope in the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico
The emplacement of structures on the seafloor has always been difficult but until recently, few knew just how difficult possible construction on the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico Continental...
