Transport Model Uncertainty and Sensitivity Analysis for Groundwater Releases of Radionuclides from Subsurface Nuclear Tests
Uncertainty analysis of groundwater flow and transport models is a topic of considerable interest in the groundwater modeling communities. The Underground Test Area (UGTA) Project of the...

Enhancing the Solution of Large Monitoring Network Design Problems Using a New Epsilon-Dominance Hierarchical Bayesian Optimization Algorithm
Designing long-term monitoring (LTM) networks for contaminated groundwater is a challenging problem that has long been recognized to suffer from the curse of dimensionality. LTM design...

Probabilistic Analysis of Long-Term Aquifer Recharge
Long-term time series of aquifer recharge and other aquifer fluxes (aquifer discharge, groundwater extraction) are essential to monitor and understand aquifer processes. This paper presents...

Size and Scale Effects on the Shear Strength of Concrete Beams
This paper identifies and discusses the role of proper geometric scale of relevant parameters in the size effect in shear, particularly in terms of practical beam design. In the overall...

Structures Congress 2008
Crossing Borders
The 40th Structures Congress's technical program consists of 10 tracks and three poster sessions. The program covers practical design in the following topic areas including...

Fundamentals of Risk Assessment
Risk, expressed in terms of potential human sufferings and economic losses, is very real and its significance is particularly important when considering natural hazards. For effective...
