Determining the True Distributions of Load in Instrumented Piles

Stochastic Conditional Simulation of Berea Sandstone Geophysical Properties with a Counterpropagation Neural Network
The ability of a counterpropagation neural network to produce stochastic conditional simulations is applied and evaluated on a real dataset. This network functions as a nonparametric clustering...

Non-Destructive Strength Evaluation of a Continuous, Reinforced Concrete Slab Bridge
In the state of New Mexico, a significant number of reinforced concrete slab (RCS) bridges provide service on interstate highways I-10, I-25, and I-40 that are subjected to large amounts...

Characterization of Particle Class Sizes Associated with Indicator Organisms in Stormwater
The presence of pathogen indicators is the leading cause of water body impairment in the United States, accounting for over 15% of the waters currently requiring TMDL development (USEPA,...

Hydrologic Modeling Uncertainty and Spatial Data Resolution

Laboratory Modeling of Vibro-Driven Piles

Application of TOPNET in the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project (DMIP)
This paper describes the application of a networked version of TOPMODEL, TOPNET, as part of the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project, DMIP. The model implementation is based on a...

Mathematical Modeling of Watershed Hydrology
Mathematical modeling of watershed hydrology is employed to address a wide spectrum of environmental and water resources problems. A historical perspective of hydrologic modeling is provided,...

Bayesian Approach to Support Design of a Groundwater Long Term Monitoring Plan
This paper discusses a retrospective data assimilation approach that allows one to examine the spatial and temporal differences between forecast and observed states. Their stability, or...

Comparison of Hydrodynamic Parameters for a Floating Breakwater
The U. S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center is in the process of developing a Rapidly Installed Breakwater System (RIBS) for use in Joint Logistics Over the Shore Operations...

The Determination of Velocity Spectra and Dissipation by Direct and Indirect Means using Second-Order Accurate PIV
In this paper we present a 2 nd order accurate technique in space (following Wereley & Meinhart's (2001) extension of Cowen & Monismith's (1997) dynamic sub-window PIV...

Preliminary Assessment of Bacteria Abundance in Rivers of the Pantanal Wetlands -- Brazil
Heterothrophic bacteria play an important role in the carbon flux of aquatic environments, specially in flooded areas, where they are considered to be a source of organic matter. They...

Predicting Droughts for the South Platte River System
In this paper we apply probability theory and stochastic processes to determine drought properties, particularly drought duration. Spccilicslly, we model the sequences of wet and dry years...

Spatial Decision Support System for River Basin Management
MODSIM is a generalized river basin network flow model designed to simultaneously assure that water resources are allocated according to physical, hydrogeological, and institutional/administrative...
