An Evaluation of Injection Well Plugging From a Ground-Water Heat Pump System in Southeastern North Dakota

Simulated Circulation and Transport in Adjacent Wind-Driven Estuaries in North Carolina
The Pamlico and Neuse River estuaries, in North Carolina, display similar physical characteristics because of their proximity and physiographic setting. Yet, because of channel configuration...

A Comparative Analysis of Estuarine Circulation Simulation Using Laterally Averaged and Vertically Averaged Hydrodynamic Models
Multidimensional models are routinely used to characterize hydrodynamic and transport processes in estuarine and coastal ocean systems. Due to a variety of factors, the choice between...

Joint Probability of Superelevated Water Levels and Wave Heights at Duck, North Carolina
Storm events are typically classified as a percent occurrence or return interval based on their peak storm elevation. The stage is the combination of storm surge, astronomical tide and...

Development of Hydro-Scheduling Model for Optimal Joint Operation of Multi-Reservoir Systems
Multipurpose reservoirs in a reservoir system are not limited to supplying ample amounts of water and electricity, but also provide other water demands such as flood control, navigation,...

Willingness and Ability to Pay for Rural Water
Estimates of willingness to pay for rural water systems were developed in South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Montana from responses to contingent valuation surveys. Ability to pay was also estimated...

Lewis and Clark Rural Water System: A Regional Approach to Solving Domestic Water Supply Problems for a Tri-State Area
The proposed Lewis and Clark Rural Water System (L&CRWS) is a treated, bulk water delivery system. Membership includes twenty-two communities and rural water systems in southeastern...

Plans for Managing High Level Waste at the Savannah River Site

Analysis of the Juturnaiba Embankment Dam Built on an Organic Soft Clay
The Juturnaiba Dam, located in the northern part of Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, has 1.2 km of its length built on an organic soft clay about four meters deep. The construction of the...

A Procedure for Predicting Seismic Deformation of Earth Structures
This paper presents an analysis procedure for predicting the earthquake induced displacements of earth structures. The procedure is an extension of the simple Newmark method from a single-degree-of-freedom...

Building Performance Founded on an Improved Sand in Recife, Brazil
Studies performed on a fourteen-storey building founded on an improved sand are presented. These studies included soil profile characterization, the choice of foundation type, the ground...

Deformations About Excavations in Highly Stressed Rock
The central business district of Sydney, New South Wales (NSW), is dominated by the Hawkesbury Sandstone, a Triassic sedimentary formation. Measurements have confirmed the existence of...

Two Case Studies of Marine Parks & Marinas as Economic and Tourism Activity Stimulators in Brazil

Use of a Modified Hybrid Model to Analyze the Effectiveness of Jetties in Reducing Marina Sedimentation
The effectiveness of the construction of jetties near the entrance channel of a coastal marina in reducing marina sedimentation has been analyzed using a modified hybrid model. The modified...

Factors Affecting Accuracy of Slope-Area Discharge Determination of the September 1992 Flood in Raven Fork, Western North Carolina
For the flood of September 10, 1992, in Raven Fork, Swain County, North Carolina, a peak discharge of 460 cubic meters per second was computed by using the slope-area method. Accuracy...

Salinity and Dissolved-Oxygen Dynamics in a Wind-Driven Estuary
Water levels, near-surface and near-bottom salinities, and near-surface and near-bottom dissolved-oxygen concentrations were measured continuously in the Pamlico River estuary, North Carolina,...
