Littoral Dune Transport and Morphology Under a Variable Wind Regime
Most of the large dunes are generally produced by a permanent or quasi-permanent winds. Usually winds present strong concentrations of its directional spectrum around its mean direction....

Operation of Hydropower Plants Considering Daily Streamflows
Operation of hydropower plants is a sequential decision process often modeled as a dynamic programming problem. Typically, such formulations consider monthly stages assuming that monthly...

Description and Evaluation of Program: SNUSM
The Staggered Net Unsteady State Model (SNUSM) was developed in the early 1980's by the United States Bureau of Reclamation under the direction of Bob Gooch and Al Graves....

Scenario for Improving the Seismic Resistance of Pipelines in the Central United States
A number of pipelines transporting crude oil and natural gas to the Midwest and Northeast pass within and adjacent to the New Madrid seismic zone in the central United States. A major...

Seismic Hazard Along a Crude Oil Pipeline in the Event of an 1811-1812 Type New Madrid Earthquake
This paper presents an assessment of the seismic hazard that exists along a major crude oil pipeline (pipeline 22). An 1811-1812 type New Madrid earthquake with moment magnitude 8.2 is...

Seismic Hazards for Memphis Water Delivery Systems
Estimation of seismic hazards is the first essential task in performing the seismic risk assessment of a municipal water delivery system. This paper presents the evaluation of seismic...

Seismic Vulnerability of Memphis Water System Components
The vulnerability of selected components of the Memphis Water System is evaluated herein for a 7.5 moment magnitude earthquake within the southern portion of the New Madrid Seismic Zone....

Lifeline Seismic Risk Analysis Impacts of a Catastrophic Earthquake on U.S. National Lifeline Systems
Electric power, water, gas, and oil pipelines, highways, railroads and several other lifelines of critical importance at the U.S. national level have been inventoried and analyzed, to...

Seismic Vulnerability Assessment of Bridges on Earthquake Priority Routes in Western Kentucky
This paper discusses the current conditions of 203 bridges on the priority routes in Western Kentucky and their vulnerabilities to earthquakes. A span-loss type of bridge collapse due...

Response Analysis of Crude Oil Transmission Systems
A preliminary analysis of the seismic response of continuous steel pipelines is presented. The Crude Oil Transmission System in the New Madrid Mo. area is choosen as an example. Assumptions...

Analysis of RADTRAN Transportation Model
The RADTRAN computer model, used to estimate the risks of transporting waste to a high-level repository, is critically reviewed. Ignoring high consequence accidents, human error, sabotage,...

Spillway Gates for the El Naranjero Dam in Spain
In June 1986 Zwag Zschokke Wartmann Ltd received the order from Hidroelectrica Espanola S.A. in Madrid, Spain for the design and model testing of 5 radial gates on the 'El...

Recent Developments in the Oil Spill Response, Arrangements in Four Mediterranean Countries: The Cases of Spain, Italy, Libya and Egypt

Development of Fragility Curves for Liquefaction
The purpose of this study is to propose a methodology for evaluation of the degree of liquefaction potential and to demonstrate its applicability in constructing fragility curves for liquefaction...

Estimating Earthquake Hazard of Municipal Water Systems
This paper uses the City of Memphis as a case study to present the seismic hazard evaluation of a municipal water delivery system. The horizontal peak bedrock accelerations resulting from...

Some Examples of Latticed Structures in Spain
Since the middle of the last sixties latticed structures have extensively been used in Spain to cover different large areas as factories, churches, marketplaces, exhibition palaces etc....

Earthquake Effect on Sediment in Rivers and Deltas
Many authors have studied the age and distribution of the Holocene deltaic deposits of the Mississippi River. Several others have written about the magnitude and the recurrence interval...

Model Study of New Madrid Pumping Station
The proposed pumping station on the New Madrid Floodway consisted of a draft tube type sump design (referred to as a formed suction inlet) to eliminate swirl and provide a more uniform...

Development of High Specific Speed Pump-Turbines
The operational range of pump-turbines is continually increasing, especially in the direction of high specific speed installation. In this context, high specific speed refers to units...
