Numerical Modeling of Advective and Diffusive Transport in the Rappahannock Estuary, Virginia
A laterally integrated, two-dimensional real-time model, consisting of linked hydrodynamic and water quality models, was developed to study hypoxia in the tidal Rappahannock River, a western...

Experimental Study of Undertow and Turbulence Intensity Under Irregular Waves in the Surf Zone
Experiments are performed in a two-dimensional wave tank with a sloping beach. Irregular waves are generated and the water particle velocity is measured in the surf zone with a laser Doppler...

How Should the Migration and Retardation of Colloids be Characterized?

Different Methods to Compute Pollutant Dispersion Around Buildings
Different methods to approximate the advection terms currently in use are reviewed. Holly-Preismann (HP) cubic interpolation using method of characteristics, Chapeau function (CF) method...

Effect of Roughness and Thickness of Biofilms on External Mass Transfer Resistance
The effect of roughness and thickness of biofilms on the dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration boundary layer thickness (DO CBLT) and the external mass transfer process in a biofilm system...

Modeling Full-Scale Diffused Aeration Systems
The purpose of this research was to show the direct relationship of the oxygen mass transfer coefficient (KLaT)...

Measurement of Turbulent Properties in a Natural System
Instruments designed to measure flow properties in stratified estuaries, lakes and oceans are reviewed. Emphasis is given to the measurement of turbulent fluxes and recent developments...

Velocity and Turbulence Measurement from the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers
This paper presents a data measurement program that was used for collecting the velocity data associated with barge-tow traffic on the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers and includes a discussion...

An Investigation of Turbulence in Open Channel Flow via Three-component Laser Doppler Anemometry
A three-component laser Doppler anemometer is used to reexamine the distribution of single-point mean statistics in a nearly uniform fully-developed 2D turbulent open channel flow of water...

Hot-Film Response in Three-Dimensional Highly Turbulent Flows
A methodology is described for accurate turbulence measurements with hot film or hot wires even at turbulent intensities as high as 100%. The assumptions involved and the approximations...

Experimental Study on Turbulent Structures in Unsteady Open-channel Flows
Turbulence measurements in unsteady open-channel flows over smooth beds were conducted accurately by the simultaneous use of two-component LDA system and water-wave gauges. In the inner...

Response of Velocity and Turbulence to Abrupt Changes from Smooth to Rough Beds in Open-channel Flows
Response of velocity distribution and turbulence characteristics to abrupt changes of bed roughness have been investigated experimentally with two-component laser Doppler anemometer (LDA)....

High-speed Video Analysis of Sediment-Turbulence Interaction
Results from the analysis of high-speed video recordings of particle motion and simultaneous flow visualizations in the near wall region of a turbulent open channel flow are presented....

LDV System for Towing Tank Applications
The design, construction, testing, and operation of a two-dimensional LDV system for use in a towing tank is described. The primary design considerations were underwater application, minimal...

Simultaneous Flow Visualization and Hot-Film Measurements
High-speed video recording of flow visualizations in the near wall region of a turbulent open channel flow was synchronized with hot-film measurements of flow velocity and bed shear stress...

Nonlinearity and Free-Surface Flow
The Dupuit-Forchheimer (D-F) assumption is commonly considered a viable design criterion for water resources projects and, consequently, Darcy law is used to determine the locus of free...
