Seismic Solutions for Steel Frame Buildings
After the Northridge Earthquake, damage in steel moment resisting frame connections stunned engineers. Now those engineers are scrambling to find and test new kinds of connections. This...

Spotlight on Steel Moment Frames
Engineers' confidence in moment connections was shattered when damage was discovered after the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Such connections are now a hot subject for U.S....

An Evaluation of Drainage Conditions in the San Joaquin Valley
The discovery of deformities and deaths of aquatic birds at Kesterson Reservoir in 1983 substantially altered the perception of agricultural subsurface drainage water threats in the San...

An Extended Relaxation Technique for Unsteady Flows in Networks
A recent enhancement to the FLD WAY model is the addition of an extended relaxation technique for modeling unsteady flows in a dendritic (tree-type) network of channels with tributaries...

FLODRO 2.0: A User Friendly Personal Computer Package for Flood and Drought Frequency Analyses
The use of personal computers have changed dramatically the way to perform several studies related with hydrological problems. The increased capabilities of the current generation of personal...

Dynamic vs. Quasi-Static Effluent Limits
Selenium water quality objectives are currently being exceeded in the San Joaquin River, California due to agricultural subsurface drainage discharges. The Federal Clean Water Act requires...

Rethinking Well Efficiency
Many authors have suggested ways to evaluate water well efficiency. Most of these have either compared some form of measured drawdown with theoretical drawdown or measured the fraction...
