LRFD for U. S. Bridge Design — Validation Issues
During the 1987 meeting of the AASHTO Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures, recommendations from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), Project 20-7/31, regarding...

Development of a Test Validated Methodology for Predicting Concrete Containment Leakage
In the past several years, considerable research effort has been devoted by the Electric Power Research Institute and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to the behavior of reactor...

Using Role Analysis for Instream Flow Negotiations
Improved understanding of multi-agency decisionmaking has been called for but is rarely achieved, partially because there is no well known, broadly accepted technique for conducting an...

Validation and Intercomparison of Three-Dimensional Numerical Models of Estuarine and Lake Hydrodynamics
Three-dimensional numerical models have been developed and used to study the circulation and transport of water quality parameters in estuaries and lakes. This paper discusses two important...

Capital Cost Modelling for Micro-Hydro Appraisal
Empirical capital cost models for mini- and micro-hydro installations have not been validated with consistent site information. This paper reviews cost modelling techniques and describes...

Use of Simulation for Validation of Systems Approach to Project Appraisal

Guide for Evaluating Engineering Software
This is a practical guide to the problem of assessing the suitability of computer software being considered for use in engineering analysis, design or decision making. Each chapter treats...

Schematization and Validation of 2DH Mathematical Models in Coastal Morphology

HYPOS—Hourly System Hydropower Scheduling
HYPOS (Hydro Power Scheduling) is a modification of the program HYPO as presented at Waterpower 81. HYPOS is an interactive system which allows schedulers to assign hourly power generation...

Hale Cycle and Indian Drought and Flood Area Indices
The Indian Drought (DAI) and flood (FAI) area indices have been argued to be related to the hale cycle of sunspot number by H. N. Bhalme and D. A. Mooley. They studied the dependence between...

Water Requirements for Range Plant Establishment
A conceptual model was developed which describes a series of pathways or transition sequences which a seed or seedling may follow during the initial wet-dry-wet periods after planting....

Validation of the CICE Code for Ice Ride-Up and Ice Ridge Cone Interaction
The discrete element method is capable of analyzing multiple, interacting, deformable, discontinuous or fractured bodies undergoing large motions and rotations. The formulation solves...

Validation of SWRRB—A Simulator for Water Resources in Rural Basins
The three major components of SWRRB are weather, hydrology, and sedimentation. Processes considered include surface runoff, return flow, percolation, evapotranspiration, transmission losses,...

Vehicle Sound Power measurement Using the Acoustic Intensity Method
The use of the two microphone Acoustic Intensity Method of obtaining accurate measurement of over-all sound power of large wheel loaders is described. This system is in operation, within...

Administrative Aspects of Project Software
This paper reviews the various aspects of administering the development, control, and use of computer software employed to support the design office in the administrative and technical...

Evaluation of the Driver/Extraboard Cost Model
This paper presents a general evaluation of the Driver Extraboard Cost Model. The evaluation is based on a series of validation tests performed using data from the Tri-County Metropolitan...

Better Design Documents Through Constructibility Review
The Corps of Engineers (Corps) improves the quality of design documents by an extensive program to review in-house and Architect/Engineer (A/E) designs. This review is composed of several...

Validation of Consolidation Properties of Phosphatic Clay at Very High Void Ratios
The void ratio-effective stress and void ratio permeability relationships for phosphate slime mine tailings were measured by several methods. The measurements were used in nonlinear finite...
