Performance of Spun Prestressed Concrete Poles During Hurricane Andrew

A Survey of Building Performance in Hurricane Iniki and Typhoon Omar

Analyzing Wave and Storm Surge Impacts from Hurricane Andrew on the Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection Project

Coastal and Oceanographic Impact of Hurricane Andrew

The December 1992 Storm at the New York Mud Dump Site

Validation of a Continental-Scale Storm Surge Model for the Coast of Delaware
Coastal structures are designed to provide protection against various forces of nature acting in the coastal zone. Structures such as seawalls are expected to provide onshore protection...

Instrumented Buoy Network Response to Ocean Swell
The National Data Buoy Center has an extensive network of more than 20 moored buoys along the west coast of North America And in the Eastern North Pacific Ocean. The network ranges from...

Applications of Large Domain Hydrodynamic Models to Generate Frequency-of-Occurrence Relationships
This paper describes theory and application of the Empirical Simulation Technique (EST), a statistical procedure for simulating time sequencing and frequency-of-occurrence relationships...

Coastal Circulation and Sedimentation During Severe Storms
Numerical hindcasts of storm flows and sedimentation during tropical cyclones in the western Gulf of Mexico, and a northeaster in the Middle Atlantic Bight, are summarized and compared....

Disaster Debris Management and Diversion from Hurricane Iniki

Hurricane Iniki, A Hindcast, Winds, Windwaves, Swells, Storm Surge, and Wave Run-Up

Inner Continental Shelf Transport Processes: The Middle Atlantic Bight

Winter Storm Mapping a Geographic Information Systems Transportation Applications
The Winter Storm Mapping System (WSMS) has grown out of our Geographic Information System for Transportation (GIS-T). The development of this project began the spring of 1991 on the State...

Hydrologic Analysis of Leveed Interior Areas
Flood damage reduction projects that include levees or flood walls usually involve special problems associated with isolated interior areas. Storm runoff patterns may be altered and remedial...

The PULSEQUAL Model: Using Combinations of Simple Mathematical Equations to Evaluate Complex Storm Effects on Water Quality
Storm discharges (stormwater and combined sewer overflows) have transient and highly variable impacts on receiving waters. Simple water quality equations have been developed to accurately...

Urban Stormwater Runoff Control System—Village of Skokie, Illinois
Combined sewer systems in many communities lack the capacity to convey stormwater runoff from even small to moderate storm. This inadequate capacity, in turn, causes basement flooding...

Combined Sewer Overflow Abatement Planning Based on SWMM EXTRAN Modeling
This paper discusses use of the Storm Water Management Model (SWMM), with the EXTRAN block as the hydraulic transport mechanism, as a tool for developing a facilities plan for abating...

Application of the Storm Water Management Model in Evaluating Combined Sewer Overflows
This paper summarizes the application of the stormwater Management Model (SWW) to isolate the contributions of Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) to a receiving water. The CSO discharges...

Characterizing Urban Runoff Quantity and Quality
A method using simulated flows and measured pollutant concentrations was successfully applied to estimate pollutant loadings resulting from runoff during storm events from an urban area....
