Pipeline Leak Detection Based on Mass Balance
Current technologies in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems enable pipeline leak detection to be carried out in real time by software-based methods. This paper discusses...

Some Recent Progress in Uncertainty Analysis for Hydraulic Design

Estimation of Uncertainties for Design Extreme Values of Waves and Sea Level

Reliability and Uncertainty Analyses in Hydraulic Design
Prepared by the Subcommittee on Uncertainty and Reliability Analyses in Design of Hydraulic Structures of the Technical Committee on Probabilistic Approaches to Hydraulics of ASCE. ...

Preliminary Assessment of Fault Rupture Hazard at the Yucca Mountain Site Based on Expert Judgement
The judgments of seven earth science experts were elicited to quantify the uncertainties associated with the likelihood of fault displacement through the proposed repository at Yucca Mountain...

Calculating Erosion Rates: Using Long-Term Data to Increase Data Confidence
Computer cartographic techniques were used to produce historical shoreline change maps for two study areas: (1) an eight kilometer section of Calvert County, Maryland; and (2) an eight...

Quantification of Uncertainties in a Water Quality Model with Application to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
A methodology is described that allows a quantitative verification of water quality models. The methodology provides a quantitative analysis of model accuracy that takes into account different...

Projecting Land Use/Transportation Interactions
The inherent uncertainty in forecasting the interaction between transportation capacity and induced development has resulted in insufficient analysis of this dynamic in the transportation...

Uncertainty in Infrastructure Management
The difference between committed costs and actual expenditure is a margin of control in project management. By using a measure of uncertainty we construct a cost-risk evaluation framework...

Multiple Objectives, Uncertainty and Routing Decisions for Hazardous Materials Shipments
Explicit consideration of multiple objectives and uncertainty is important in hazardous materials transportation, particularly in regulating routes or making routing decisions. Application...

Probabilistic Assessment of Composite Structures
Formal procedures are described which are used to computationally simulate the probabilistic behavior of composite structures. The computational simulation starts with the uncertainties...

Updating Dynamic Models and Their Associated Uncertainties for Structural Systems
The problem of updating a structural model and its associated uncertainties using dynamic test data is addressed, considering uncertainties which arise from measurement noise, modeling...

Phased Assembly of a European Space Station
