Application of Computer-Aided Structural Engineering
From as early as 1988, the Civil/Structural Group of Bechtel Corp.'s Houston Regional Office has viewed its automated production tools as components of a production system. Intergraph's...

Digital Signal Processing Techniques for Active Structural Control
In the past, implementation of active structural control strategies employing PC-based hardware has been problematic due to excessive computational times required for processing the measured...

Galveston Bay 3D Model Study, Channel Deepening, Circulation, and Salinity Results
Galveston Bay in Texas contains the Houston Ship Channel connecting the port of Houston to the Gulf of Mexico. Due to navigational hazards, the Galveston District Corps of Engineers began...

Dallas Session Explores What Makes a Civil Engineer into a Leader?

Groundwater Management and Systems Operations Optimization Utilizing Supply, Well Reliability, and Demand Distribution as Decision-Making Criteria
Houston, Texas has a water supply system comprised of both ground and surface water sources serving a population of 2.2 million people through 5,000 miles of water lines and 357,000 water...

Design and Implementation of an Optimal Real-Time Hydropower Generation Scheduling System for the Lower Colorado River in Texas
The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) of Texas supplies water and electric power to over 800,000 persons in Central Texas. A real-time decision support system is being developed and...

Fort Bend County Surface Water Supply Study
Fort Bend County encompasses approximately 876 square miles in southeast Texas near the Gulf of Mexico. The County's sole source of potable water is groundwater, which supplied 28 million...

Stochastic Optimal Control for Determination of Freshwater Inflows to Estuaries
The objective of the research is to develop estuarine system management models based upon discrete-time stochastic optimal control. An analytical feedback control law is given. The control...

Multiobjective Models for Determining Freshwater Inflows to Bays and Estuaries
This paper presents four multiobjective models for the estuary management problem, including goal programming, the epsilon constraint method, the surrogate worth tradeoff method and the...

Differential Dynamic Programming for Estuarine Management
Differential dynamic programming (DDP) is applied to solve the estuarine management problem to determine the optimal amount of freshwater inflows into bays and estuaries in order to maximize...

An Interactive Regional Regression Approach to Estimating Flood Quantiles
In Texas, a computer program has been developed which will estimate flood quantiles for an ungaged site based on data from gaging stations with similar watershed characteristics. The user...

Opportunities, Constraints and Change in Reservoir Management
Changing hydrologic, economic, social and environmental conditions have focused attention on the opportunities for changing reservoir management. Such change can occur in three areas....

Footing Load Tests on Sand
Four full size footings were load tested at a site in Texas. The embedded footings were situated on a thin layer of stiff clay underlain by a thick deposit of medium dense to dense sand....
