The annual series of extreme rainfall amounts for various durations are compiled. The statistics such as mean, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, coefficient of skewness, and...

Developing an Air Transportation Hub—A Planning and Analysis Process and its Application in Taiwan, R.O.C.
The Ministry of Transportation and Communications of the Republic of China in Taiwan wanted to know whether it was feasible and desirable to develop an air transport hub at Chiang Kai-shek...

Development and Application of a GIS-Based FTIMS
This paper presents the development of a GIS-based freeway traffic information management system (FTIMS) for the Sun Yat-Sen National Freeway of Taiwan. A two-stage analytical hierarchy...

Taipower's Spent Fuel Interim Storage Program
Given the original designs, the existing six nuclear power units of Taiwan Power Company will lose full core discharge capability before end 1990's. To timely fulfill additional spent...

Simulation of River Bed Evolution Below Tsengwen Reservoir in Taiwan
An uncoupled, one-dimensional river model, capable of simulating bed evolution, hydraulic sorting and armoring under unsteady flow conditions is presented in this paper. This unsteady...

Coastal Processes on the Wai-San-Ding Barrier of Taiwan STrait, R.O.C.
The coastal line processes on the Wan-San-Ding Barrier is discussed in this paper since 1900. The wave energy along this coast is computed from the measured wave by considering the refraction...

The Drought Occurrence and Response Measures in Taiwan Area, 1991

Flushing Characteristics for Harbor Planning
A two-dimensional hydrodynamics model was used to understand the circulation and transport patterns in Keelung Harbor, Taiwan. The calculated hydrodynamics information was used to determine...

Seismic Risk Analysis Based on Spectral Characteristics of Ground Motions
This paper presents two different approaches to construct the seismic response spectrum from a probabilistic point of view. One is the uniform hazard response spectrum, the other is the...

Management of High-Level Wastes in the Republic of China
Because of the importance of nuclear energy in the Republic of China, the management of associated radwastes, especially the high-level wastes (HLW), is indispensable for today's...

Public Concerns of Nuclear Waste Issues in Taiwan
Opinions and comments from randomly selected 1837 general public and 454 professionals are compiled and analyzed to obtain their concerns on nuclear waste issues in Taiwan. Results indicate...

Study of an Alternativefor Repository of Radioactive Waste—Taiwan Case
The accumlation of spent fuel and radioactive waste is forcing producers to look for repository systems in Taiwan. Tectonic setting, and geologic processes indicate that the Penghu Islands...

Optimal Real-Time Operation of Te-Chi Reservoir
An optimization model for the 10-day operation of Te-Chi Reservoir in central Taiwan is developed. The inflow to the reservoir is forecasted by an ARX model with a Kalman Filter updating...

Wave Power Development in Taiwan
The feasibility study of wave power development in Taiwan was performed in two phases. The first phase included the calculation and assessment of the available wave energy along the coasts...
