Nonlinearity and Free-Surface Flow

*The Dupuit-Forchheimer (D-F) assumption is commonly considered a viable design criterion for water resources projects and, consequently, Darcy law is used to determine the locus of free...*

Effect of Data Sampling Time Resolution on Probability Distribution of Elapsed Time Between Rainfalls

*The elapsed time between rainfalls is useful information in statistical forecasting of rainfall and runoff. The probability density function (pdf) of the elapsed time can be determined...*

Real-Time Flood Forecasting Using Adaptive Estimation

*The proposed flood forecasting system combines a flood routing model with a parameter estimation model. The flood routing model utilizes ?-index to determine the effective rainfall and...*

Modeling of Maximum Velocity in Open-Channel Flow

*A great deal of information about an open channel flow is contained in the maximum velocity, which, along with the entropy parameter, can determine the mean velocity. Therefore, the maximum...*

A Lagrangian Model for Surface Buoyant Jets

*A model is developed to predict the trajectory of a surface buoyant discharge into a large receiving water body. A Lagrangian approach is used to trace the path of a `control volume' of...*

Some Benefits of Grid by Number Sampling

*Describing the overall sediment composition of gravel-bed river reaches and depositional bars is a difficult problem due to spatial variations in the sediment size. Past research has focused...*

3D Free Surface Flow Model Verification - A Panel Discussion on Test Cases

*This paper is to briefly present the objectives and approaches of the Panel Discussion on test cases to be developed for 3d free surface flow model verifications, so that professionals...*

Estimation of Design Surge Heights by Utilizing Meteorologic and Oceanographic Data

*Data on cyclonic storm surge height have been generated with the help of a statistical simulation model. Data on observed maximum cyclonic wind speed and the length of the continental...*

Evaluation of Six Methods for the LP3 Distribution

*Six frequently used estimation methods for the Log-Pearson type 3 distribution were evaluated using both the predictive and the descriptive performance indices. Ten LP3 populations and...*

Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis

*This proceedings,*Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis , consists of papers presented at the Second International Symposium on Ocean Wave Measurement...

Estimating Network Model Parameters from Mail Survey Data

*Network models are generally based on a four-step modeling process; trip generation, trip distribution, modal split, and trip assignment. Microcomputer implementations of these steps have...*

A PASSER II-90 Postprocessor for Detailed Analysis of Arterial Traffic Control Parameters

*Many preprocessors have been developed for traffic signal operation software to ease the tedious data input process or to perform error trapping on the input data. However, work to date...*

Factors Controlling Strong Ground Motion and Their Associated Uncertainties

*Of special interest in strong ground motion modeling is a quantification of the degree of influence specific physical parameters have on the computed motions. Associated with the model...*

New Methods to Characterize Site Amplification

*Methods alternative to spectral ratios are introduced to characterize site amplification. The methods are developed by using a range of models, from the simple constant amplification model...*

Fatigue Damage Accumulation Under Non-Gaussian Loads

*The stochastic fatigue life prediction method, namely the Rayleigh approximation method, is almost exact when the loading is both normal (Gaussian) and narrowband. However, in many realistic...*

Results from the Second Performance Assessment Iteration for the Greater Confinement Disposal Facility

*The Greater Confinement Disposal (GCD) facility was established by the Nevada office of the Department of Energy (DOE) in Area 5 at the Nevada Test Site for containment of waste inappropriate...*

Flow and Transport in Hierarchically Fractured Systems

*Preliminary results indicate that flow in the saturated zone at Yucca Mountain is controlled by fractures. A current conceptual model assumes that the flow in the fracture system can be...*

Automatic Calibration of 3D Finite Differences Model Parameters? Application to the Finnsjon Site (Sweden)

*Calibration of 3D finite difference model parameters is usually carried out using a noon-automatic 'manual' procedure until observed heads, for instance, are simulated with a sufficient...*

The Best of Both Worlds: Integrating Statistical and Deterministic Approaches to Area Remediation
