Acoustic-Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) for Laboratory Use
A remote-sensing, three-dimensional (3D) velocity sensor has been developed and tested for use in physical model facilities. The sensor is based on the Acoustic Doppler principle and measures...

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...

Air Concentration Measurements in Highly-Turbulent Flow on a Steeply-Sloping Chute
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's (Reclamation) stepped spillway overtopping protection research program required air concentration profile data be obtained during testing in a large, 15.2-m-high...

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...

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...

Spotting Specs Offenders
About 80% of all specification related litigation is brought about by three different personality types all too common to construction projects. The problem is specifications abuse, when...

A Two-Way Traffic Feasibility Analysis
This paper presents the findings of a traffic planning feasibility analysis of the expected operational characteristics and traffic impacts related to the proposed conversion of Hennepin...

The Influence of Seasonal Climatic Variability on Shallow Infiltration at Yucca Mountain
To analyze infiltration and the redistribution of moisture in alluvial deposits at Yucca Mountain, water content profiles at a 13.5 m deep borehole were measured at monthly intervals using...

The Influence of Long Term Climate Change on Net Infiltration at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Net infiltration and recharge at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, a potential site for a high level nuclear waste repository, are determined both by the rock properties and past and future changes...

The SECO Suite of Codes for Site Performance Assessment
Modeling for performance assessment of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) has led to development of the SECO suite of codes for groundwater flow, particle tracking, and transport....

Computer Application in Analyzing Change Order Work
In heavy construction, particularly on large tunnel projects, numerous tasks are often performed and inspected simultaneously. The project specifications and contract documents require...

Containing Construction Change with Computers
This paper discusses the benefits of managing construction change orders with computers over manual methods. Construction contracts formulate change procedures that are often at odds with...

Uncertainty in Economic Evaluation of Upgrading Gravel Surface Roads
Many highway links in the world are still gravel surfaced. As traffic volumes increase, the demand for upgrading these surface also increases. The challenge to highway infrastructure management...

A Global Vulnerability Assessment: Vulnerability of Coastal Areas to Sea-Level Rise
Assessment of the global vulnerability (GVA) of the various resources of the world's coastal zone to an acceleration of sea-level rise (ASLR) and related climate change effects requires...

Bangladesh Coastal Management in 1993 and Beyond
Bangladesh urgently requires integrated coastal zone management to alleviate chronic resource depletion, overpopulation and widespread poverty on one of the world's most dynamic and disaster...

The Evolution of the Northern Adriatic Coastal Zone (Italy): The Climatic Changes and the Environment
This work considers the influence of the climatic changes on the evolutional trend of the Adriatic coastal zone, from Venice to the Punta Penna promontory, and the possible implication...

The Challenges of Global Warming and Climate Change on Coastal Resources Future and Development in West and Central Africa
The paper examines the challenges posed by the possible impacts of the expected global warming and climate change on the coastal resources futures and development of west and central Africa....

Global Sea Level in the Past and Future Century
During the past 150 years sea level may have risen globally by, at the most, 1.1 mm/year from about 1850 to 1930-1940. There is no straightforward relation between climate and sea level....

Preliminary Study on Impacts of Sea Level Rise and Response Strategies in Japan
This paper presents the outline of the study carried out by a Japanese committee on the impacts of and response options to the anticipated sea level rise and climate change induced by...
