Impact of GOES Data on Surface Heat Flux Predictions
Surface heat flux is the required input for the Great Lakes Forecasting System (GLFS) in order to predict three dimensional temperature structure of the Great Lakes. Since the flux is...

Climatic Perspective on the 1993 Mississippi R. Flood
The 1993 summer flooding in the Upper Mississippi River Basin was the most devastating flood of modern times with damage estimates in the range of 15-20 billion dollars. The paper describes...

Estimation of Design Surge Heights by Utilizing Meteorologic and Oceanographic Data
Data on cyclonic storm surge height have been generated with the help of a statistical simulation model. Data on observed maximum cyclonic wind speed and the length of the continental...

The Influence of Boundary Conditions on Beach Zonation

Verification of the Shearstress Boundary Conditions in the Undertow Problem

America's Pavements: World's Longest Bathtubs
Pavements are the most unusual structures designed by civil engineers. Water flows through their tops, bottoms and sides but because pavements are relatively flat, flows out again very...

Fatigue Cracking and Rutting in Flexible Pavements

Rigid Pavement Evaluation with Seismic Pavement Analyzer

Control of Aging Processes in Wastepaper Fiber Reinforced Cement

Assessment of Distress Models for Prediction of Pavement Service Life

Monitoring and Predicting Corrosion of Weathering Steel

Integration of a Municipal Pavement Management System with a Geographic Information System
This paper describes the use of a Pavement Management System (PMS), and the integration of the pavement condition data with a Geographic Information System (GIS). In June 1988, the Pavement...

Rock Structure in Relation to Concrete Dams on Granite
Granite is often considered to provide an excellent foundation for a concrete dam and a great many dams are thus founded on granitic rocks. Although granitic rocks lack the bedding of...

Ambient Air Monitoring to Support HLW Repository Site Characterization
This paper is a description of the program that has been operating in support of the Yucca Mountain site site characterization activities since 1985.The ambient air monitoring is designed...

PDS: An Expert System for Distress Diagnosis of Flexible Pavements in Taiwan
Pavement distress diagnosis requires a significant amount of engineering judgement which is difficult, if not impossible, to be quantified. This is an excellent domain for the development...

Computer Aided Analysis/Design of Overlays in Cracked Road Pavements
In this contribution CAPA, a user-friendly, PC based, finite element system, capable of analyzing and dimensioning pavement overlays is presented. Because of the generality of the finite...

Highway Speed Radar for Pavement and Bridge Deck Evaluation
Radar has been developed as an economical alternative evaluating pavement layer properties and estimating quantities of deterioration in bridge decks. These highway applications are based...

Promoting Management Systems Within Organizations
The major effort during the years in which pavement management emerged as an accepted practice was making refinements to the technical models and techniques in the systems. For example,...

Algorithm for Crack Detection in Automated Pavement Analysis
This paper summarizes recent research in various algorithms for detection of pavement cracks. The most successful algorithms use a digital filter to obtain an approximation of the principal...

Automated Data Collection for O'Hare Airport
The Chicago O'Hare International Airport (O'Hare) is one of the busiest facilities in the world. Operating at near capacity, the airport provides a critical link in the United States'...
