Molluscs as Climate Indicators: Preliminary Stable Isotope and Community Analysis

Late Glacial to Modern Climate Near Yucca Mountain Nevada

A Hypermedia Constructability System
Traditional civil engineering follows as segmented process of design then construction. Separating the two provides a system of accountability and creativity. One of the shortfalls with...

Climate Change
The wide range of predictions from global climate models most often encourages a wait-and-see approach. These uncertainties and a trust that conventional policy is sufficient to accommodate...

Computing Two Dimensional Flood Propagation with a High Resolution Extension of McCormack's Method
McCormack's method, as applied for solving the bidimensional de Saint Venant equations is enhanced with the aid of the theory of Total Variation Diminishing (TVD) schemes in order to obtain...

A Control Volume Finite Element Method for the Solution of 2-D Overland Flow Problems
This article introduces the Control Volume Finite Element Method (CVFEM) for the solution of 2-D overland flow problems. The CVFEM integrates the advantages of both Finite Element (FE)...

Flood Propagation on Mobile Beds under Mountainous Flow Conditions
An implicit finite-volume scheme is used to solve the shallow water equations under mountainous flow conditions. The algorithm is stable for sub- and supercritical flows and moving internal...

Breakout Session 3B: Traffic Projections and Uncertainties

Breakout Session 6B: IVHS

Risk-Based Decision Making in Water Resources VI
This proceedings, Risk-Based Decision Making in Water Resources VI, contains edited papers presented at the sixth Engineering Foundation Conference...

Two-Dimensional Modelling of Flow in the River Sava
On the river Sava near Ljubljana, a sports centre with a kayak racing channel was built in 1948. For the world championship in kayak-canoe racing in 1990 totally new racing channel had...

Climate Change Impacts on Boston's Water Supply
The analysis of the climate sensitivity of the water supply system of the Boston area indicates that the water supply has the potential to be dramatically altered by global warming. The...

Two-Dimensional Dam-Break Flow Simulation in a Sudden Enlargement
The paper presents the use of a two-dimensional depth averaged mathematical model for an unsteady dam-break flow simulation in a sudden enlargement. Continuity and two momentum equations...

Late Glacial Climate Estimates for Southern Nevada the Ostrocode Fossil Record

Free surface flow modelling on a complex topography
The aim of this paper is to describe the different construction stages and the validation of a free surface flow model on a complex topography. This model is based on the two dimensional...

An Adaptive Nine-Point Finite Volume Roe Scheme for Two-Dimensional Saint-Venant Equations
The system of Saint Venant equations is considered numerically. A Roe approximate solver coupled to a nine-point finite volume spatial discretization is introduced at the same time as...

Exploring Management Alternatives with Interactive Simulation
A drought exercise was held to disseminate information about a proposed change in reservoir management. In the drought exercise, an interactive operations model was used to simulate drought...

A Two-Dimensional Contaminant Transport Model with High-Resolution Upwind Schemes
High-resolution upwind schemes have become popular techniques to solve multidimensional transport problems. Based on the finite volume method (FVM), two-dimensional horizontal hydrodynamic...

Object-Oriented Finite Volume Dam-Break Model
This paper is devoted to Object-Oriented analysis and design techniques to two computational modules in the field of dam-breaking. The C++ Object-Oriented...

Numerical Modelling and Laboratory Verification for the Turbulent Flow Field in the Branching Channel
Adopting the depth-averaged k-ɜ turbulence model and using the finite volume method and SIMPLE procedure, the turbulent flow field in the branching channel is numerically solved and verified...
