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...

Projects That Point
This is only a small sampling of what we can expect inthis decade. An $80 million kiln at Port Arthur, Tex., reportedly the largest of its kind in the U.S., handles bulk solids and sludges....

Variability of Parameters of Earthquake Ground Motion Recorded by Strong Motion Arrays
The spatial variation of scalar measures of earthquake ground motion, such as peak ground acceleration, strong motion duration, and root-mean-square amplitude, along with various spectral...

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...

Systems Analysis of Tanshui River Basin

Port Engineering Development in Deep Water Area of Taiwan District, R. O. C.

Design and Installation Concepts for High Capacity Pump/Turbines
This paper discusses the pre-planned field welding and machining operations utilized for six (6) large pump/turbines, each capable of 508 MW at Virginia Power Company's Bath...

Taipei's Medium Capacity Transit System

Clogging Study of Geotextile with Weathered Mudstone
This paper focuses on the combined use of fly ash and geotextiles as a solution for the typical engineering problem of weathered mudstone slopes encountered in Taiwan. In situ collapsed...

Autoregressive Model of Spatially Propagating Earthquake Ground Motion
An autoregressive random process model was used to investigate a simulation method of spatially and temporally variative ground motion when characteristics of motion are prescribed by...

The Williamsburg: Rehab After All
Whether to repair or replace the Williamsburg Bridge has been seriously debated in New York City for years. Recently, a blue ribbon panel of technical advisors appointed by the Mayor conducted...

Crossing A Freeway
The Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle is being constructed on air rights spanning Interstate-5, adjacent to the seven acre Freeway Park that also spans the highway....

Research of Littoral Transport Rate and Wave Energy Analyses of the Bay Inside the Wai-San-Ding Barrier of the Taiwan Strait, R.O.C.

Satellites Monitor Eutrophication of Estuaries
In a study on eutrophication of estuaries, NOAA/AVHRR satellite data have been analyzed for the Changjiang River plume and the adjacent coastal areas. The different regimes identified...

Taipei Trade
The appearance of this building is remarkable—so were the cost savings. A design change form rigid shear walls to a ductile frame helped keep construction of Taipei's World...

The Management of Water Works in Taiwan Province and Kaohsiung City, ROC

Effect of Seismic Wave Inclination on Structural Response
A new procedure is developed using the computer program SASSI to evaluate the effects of inclined propagating shear waves on three-dimensional seismic soil-structure interaction (SSI)...

Reservoir Sedimentation and Desilting in Taiwan
The island of Taiwan is infested with numerous flashy streams with steep slopes and huge sediment loads, thus, the major reservoirs have experienced heavy sediment deposit. The encroachment...

A Proposed Desilting Reservoir System in Taiwan
The paper discusses the design of a desilting system for Nanhwa reservoir, in which the reservoir is divided into two bays; water flows into the forebay for sedimentation and then over...
