Intercontinental Comparison of Evaporation Estimates
The success of estimating pan evaporation by three methods was evaluated by comparing estimates with measured values for nine locations in the United States, Africa, Europe, and Australia....

Flood Estimation from Short Records
Peak flood flows are highly correlated with the daily flows in which they occur, and this relationship is used to develop a method of extending short flood records. The frequency distribution...

Australian Metrication and the Engineer
Australia has been in the process of converting to the metric system for the past five years. It is now estimated that this process will be essentially complete by the end of the year...

Concrete Replaces Steel in Offshore Coal-Loading Terminal
An open water coal-loading terminal off the east coast of Australia berths 100,000 dwt coal ships. The concrete caissons for the berth were constructed within a drydock and later a breakwater,...

Staging of Improvements to Air Transport Terminals
A simulation model to evaluate delays to aircraft at airport terminals is described. The model can be used to determine the justification for providing additional gate positions at terminals...

Simple Nonlinear Model for Flood Estimation
A simple nonlinear model is described which has several advantages over the traditional unit hydrograph technique. The catchment is divided into several subcatchments, the storage characteristics...

Piping in Earth Dams of Dispersive Clay

The Use of Prestressing in Dams in Tasmania

Concrete Production and Placing at Gordon Dam, Tasmania

Foundation Practices for Talbingo Dam, Australia
The dam site for Talbingo Dam, a 530-ft high rockfill structure, is located in shyolite lava flows except for the upper right abutment, which is in tuff beds. On the right abutment the...

Relaxation Tests on Alloy Stteel Bars
The object of this research was to determine the relaxation of stress for alloy steel bar prestressing tendons made in Australia. For convenience, the research work was broken up into...

Fracture Analysis of King's Bridge, Melbourne
The fracture of the King's Bridge at Melbourne (1963) is of special interest because the responsible prior cracks were carefully photographed and the failure load can be estimated....

Initial Loss for Flood Estimation and Forecasting
Estimation of a flood from a design storm is made difficult by the need to estimate losses from the storm. The amount of initial loss is usually fixed in some arbitrary fashion. It is...

Irrigation Channel Structures, Victoria, Australia
Standard type irrigation channel structures have been developed by the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission, Victoria, Australia for large numbers of similar structures in the channel...

River Metamorphosis
Data collected from stable alluvial rivers on the Great Plains of Western United States and on the Riverine Plain of southeastern Australia are used to demonstrate that channel width,...

Generalized Rainfall - Duration - Frequency Relationships
Rainfall-duration-frequency estimates for engineering purposes are usually subject to large sampling errors and extensive generalizations of the basic data are therefore advantageous from...

Systematic Variation Pattern of Annual River Flows
Statistical analysis of annual river flows in the United States, some European countries and southern Australia, in latitudes higher than 34○ N or S indicates a useful significant relationship...

Water-Level Fluctuations and Flow in Tidal Inlets
Equations are derived to describe the water motion in a tidal inlet connecting the ocean with a relatively small basin. The boundary conditions considered are the ocean tide and fresh...

Storm Loss Rates for Regions with Limited Data
For regions with limited data, storm loss rates for use in design flood estimation must be based on derived values from other regions. Reference is made to a large body of published loss...

Water for the World
Since time began, riverbank and lakeshore people have enjoyed abundant fresh water, although the inlanders have had to search for it in order to sustain life. Even today, the nomads of...
