A Numerical Model of Beach Profile Change Due to Random Waves
A numerical model was developed for random wave deformation and the resultant beach profile change. The model consisted of short-wave model based on parabolic equation, long-wave model...

Simulation of Bedload Transport of Marine Gravel
Using combined current meter and acoustic measurements, detailed concurrent time series of instantaneous bedload transport rates and flow turbulence have been obtained. The duration, interval...

Bedload Transport Under Low Frequency Waves
The concept of a bedload spectrum, showing the distribution of energy with frequency in the bedload process, is proposed. The bedload process is thus analysed in the frequency rather than...

Grain-Shape Analysis of Littoral and Shelf Sands, Southern California
Estimation of the exchange rates and determination of transport mechanisms and pathways associated with the onshore-offshore vector is one of the greatest sources of error in sediment...

Problems with Predicting the Transport of Pumiceous Sediments in the Coastal Environment
Pumice is often a major component of coastal sediments associated with subduction zone volcanic settings. Several recent studies in New Zealand have highlighted the difficulties of predicting...

Field Application of a Numerical Model of Beach Topography Change
Discussion was made, on the basis of field data, on the applicability of the formula for local rate of sediment transport due to combined action of waves and currents presented by Watanabe...

Cross-Shore Sediment Transport Determined by EOF Method
Laboratory and field data of beach profile changes are used to study the cross-shore transport rate. The Empirical Orthogonal Eigenfunction analysis is applied to separate the temporal...

Coastal Sediment Budget Analysis Techniques
Sediment budget analysis techniques developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District are described. The basic procedure combines information on shoreline and tidal inlet...

Coastal Process Study on Beacon Shoreline
A sediment budget was developed for the Santa Barbara and Ventura County shoreline in Southern California as part of an overall coastal planning effort. The budget was analyzed primarily...

Screening Level Modeling in Support of an Estuarine Toxics Management Program
Mathematical models will be used in the future to determine maximum allowable pollutant loading rates for several toxics to the South San Francisco Bay Estuary. This project consisted...

Modifications for Extending the Treatment Capacity
An approach for minimizing influences of increasing raw wastewater flow rates is proposed, based on modifying existing primary sedimentation units, by transforming them to flocculation...

Pilot-scale Trickling Filter Nitrification at the Longmont WWTP
Nitrification rates in trickling filters can be affected by influent organic matter, filter length, and hydraulic loading rate. The effects of these parameters on nitrification rate were...

Reliability-Based Estimates of Wetland Detention Times for Wastewater Treatment
Determination of the hydraulic residence or detention time is often the first step in design of wetlands constructed for wastewater treatment. Current methods for estimating wetland detention...

Hydro Plant Modernization and Uprating
The paper suggests that the method to achieve desirable hydropower benefits at costs lower than for new thermal projects, is through systematic modernization and upgrading of older hydro...

Improving Well Hydraulics

Estimating Landfill Leachate: A Modeling Approach

Hydraulic Weighing Lysimeter Measurement Errors
A prototype size lysimeter was studied in the laboratory to determine accuracy and sources of error that might be caused by variable pillow contact area, temperature changes in various...

Farm Irrigation Rating Index (FIRI)—A Procedure to Evaluate Both Irrigation Systems and Management
The Soil Conservation Service USDA/SCS, concentrates it's technical assistance to cooperators on improvements of on-farm irrigation systems and improvements of water management...

An Analytical Technique of Flow Rate Into Perforated Draintubes
The flow rate into a draintube in a saturated soil media depends on numerous characteristics such as the hole size, the number and spacing of holes, the drain size and depth. Based on...

Phosphorus Transport from Delaware's Rural Watershed
Phosphorus loads were estimated for 62 watersheds. Major land uses in the watersheds were cropland and forestland. Annual phosphorus loads varied from 0.42 to 1.19 kg/ha. Watersheds with...
