Storms and the Occurrence of a Turbidity Interface/Maxima in a Fresh Water Estuary
A combination of Landsat, field data and modeling analyses reveals a turbidity interface/maxima in the lower reaches of a freshwater tributary or 'estuary.' Mode...

Relief of an Urban Storm Drainage System
The Peaks Branch storm sewer system was designed in the 1930s to drain 5.7 square miles of East Dallas. Subsequently, development blocked the emergency overflow paths and many areas are...

Analysis of Storm Sewers During Surcharge
A mathematical model based on a lumped system approach is presented to simulate unsteady flow in storm sewers during surcharge. The model equations and method of solution are presented....

Comparison of Tenn-V and TR-55 on TVA Watersheds
The storm hydrograph simulation models TENN-V and TR-55 were compared as to their respective abilities to reproduce 468 storms observed on 54 watersheds. TR-55 did not represent the Tennessee...

Joint Probability Calculation of Storm Depths
A methodology is presented to estimate exceedance probabilities of rainfall depths over large areas using joint probability. The joint probability estimate combines the frequency distribution...

Extreme Flood Probability Estimates in Practice
Selecting the safety design flood for a dam or siting structures where flooding would cause severe social or economic disruption requires balancing the likelihood and consequences of failure...

A Synthetic Simulation Model of Storm Surge History and Inland Drainage in Coastal Zone Areas
In this paper, a synthetic storm surge model is proposed. With the input information of peak surge height, storm duration, and shape coefficients, this model is capable of simulating most...

A Rational Approach to Selecting an Optimal Design Storm for Flood Control
A rational methodology is presented herein for determining the optimal design storm frequency when planning for flood protection in new urban areas. The technique was developed from an...
