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...

An Updated Fracture-Flow Model for Total-System Performance Assessment of Yucca Mountain

Potential of Vertebrate Studies for Assessing Past Climate Variations

Effects of Climate Change on Water Quality
This research explores the potential effects of climate change on the quality of waters in lakes. Temperature and dissolved oxygen were considered the primary water quality variables due...

An Alternative Formulation of Volume-change Behavior of Soils
The traditional approach based on the semi-logarithmic representation of volume change data is known to work relatively well for prediction of ground settlements. This approach has been...

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...

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 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....

A Change Order is Not Admission of Liability

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...

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....
