Driver Response to Fog Conditions — An Intelligent Approach
The Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) on NSW is currently examining options for replacing its Driver Aid System on the F6 Tollway south of Sydney. On this road drivers are affected by...

Simulation of Daily Climatic Series for the Assessment of Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources
A new approach to the generation of climatic time series for studies of the impact of climate change on water resources is presented. The method adapts a current stochastic weather generator...

Wetland Hydrology Management in Australia
Changes to the hydrologic regime of wetlands is a vital factor affecting the natural diversity and conservation values of wetlands. The management of wetland hydrology thus forms an integral...

Can Statistical Methods Help to Forecast Drought?
Relationships have been developed between rainfall in eastern Australia and both southern oscillation (SO) and sea surface temperatures (SSTs), and between rainfall in Ghana, West Africa...

Evaporation Pond Hydrology
Drainwater evaporation ponds are impoundment facilities designed for drainwater disposal by evaporation. In California, these ponds are typically constructed on the clay soils of the western...

Variability of Hydraulic Response of Constructed Wetlands
Dye tracer studies using Rhodamine WT have been performed on two field scale subsurface flow wetland units for further improvement of secondary treated municipal effluent at Byron Bay...

Observations of Artificial Destratification
Artificial destratification using bubble plumes is one means whereby low dissolved oxygen in the hypolimnion of lakes and reservoirs may be averted. Temperature and DO were measured at...

Three-Dimensional Modeling of the Coastal Region Offshore from Sydney, Australia
Care must be taken in model formulation to ensure that unwanted internal circulation cannot be induced. Extensive model testing must be carried out on possible distorted element shapes...

Victoria Dam Rehabilitation

Use of Surface Treatments on Airport Pavements
Asphalt is generally used as the surfacing for flexible airport pavements with airline passenger jet aircraft. In Australia and its neighbouring territories, surface treatments (seals)...

Perimeter Load Transfer in Drilled Shafts in the Eagle Ford Formation
Results of six full-scale compression loading tests at four sites in the Dallas area are considered. Compressive strengths (qc) of the rock varied...

An Example of Rubble Mound Construction Procedures
The Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia, is in an exposed coastal zone that is now suffering from major problems with both the availability of suitable large rubble armour and its durability...

The Durability of Rubble Mound Armour in Service — A Case Study
Over the past decade, the ongoing monitoring of Gold Coast rubble mound structures in service has demonstrated a serious loss of durability over a period of time in the rock units after...

The Construction of New Victoria Dam, Australia
The paper discusses various aspects of the construction of the New Victoria Dam, a 52 m high, high-paste content RCC dam constructed near Perth, Western Australia. The mix design and its...

Ecological Sustainable Development - A Place in the Sun for Nuclear Energy?

Sydney Airport International Terminal Development
The existing International Terminal at Sydney (Kingsford Smith) Airport-KSA-is overcrowded and providing a low level of service. Planning for an expanded facility catering for KSA needs...

Piping in Earth Dams of Dispersive Clay (Paper introduced by Norman L. Ryker)
In 1971 Jim Sherard was engaged to investigate the common failure of a group of Soil Conservation Service (SCS) floodwater retarding earthfill dams built between 1957 and 1970, eleven...
