Pavement distress diagnosis requires a significant amount of engineering judgement which is difficult, if not impossible, to be quantified. This is an excellent domain for the development...

Tideland Reclamation: Establishing a Permitting System for Taiwan
Tideland reclamation represents one of the most serious challenges facing coastal zone management in Taiwan. Due to limited living space on the island and the difficulty in obtaining land,...

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...

Statistical Analysis of Extreme Hydrological Droughts
The study examined several works about extreme droughts for their validity with different parameters by the statistical experimental method. The results showed that the analytical method...

A Log-Triangular Design Hyetograph for Stormwater Management
A method is developed to generate a log-triangular design hyetograph from historical rainfall data. The method considers the characteristics from other commonly used methods for design...

Sediment Yields from a Watershed in Taiwan
Characteristics of suspended sediment load were investigated for Shih-Men Reservoir watershed in Taiwan. Results of the investigation showed that annual suspended sediment load was correlated...

Development of a Two-Layered Groundwater Model for the Taipei Basin
The objective of this paper is to develop a groundwater model for flow simulation in the Taipei basin. A conceptual model of the basin is first developed; the model consists of an upper...

An Optimal Parameter Estimation Model for Groundwater Resource Management
An optimal parameter estimation model is developed to identify the locations of wells, to determine pumping magnitude, and to calculate transmissivity coefficients in a confined aquifer...

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...

Rainfall Depth-Duration-Frequency Analysis for Major Cities in Taiwan
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...

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...

The Financing Fray
Interview with two executives of the U.S. firm Morrison-Knudsen: Donn Smith, senior vice president of project finance at M-K's International Group, and Richard White, vice...

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...

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...
