Thermal Analysis of Frozen Embankment Islands
A two-dimensional finite element analysis of the thermal state of man-made frozen islands is presented. The model includes an air-ground interface energy exchange simulator that incorporates...

Augmentation of 1968-1972 Winter Storms in New Mexico
Scientific studies on winter orographic cloud seeding were conducted in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico during the winters of 1968-1969 through 1971-1972. The objective specific...

Predicting Wind-Induced Response in Hurricane Zones
The procedure appropriate for regions where available wind data are representative of the strong wind climate, as is in regions where extreme winds are due mainly to large-scale weather...

Physicochemical Properties of Dredge Spoil
Physicochemical changes resulting from the subaerial exposure of dredge spoil during land disposal were investigated using five fine-grain bottom sediment samples from the lower Great...

Materials and Specification for Marine Structures

Brittle Failure of Steel Stack
Causes of brittle fracture of brick lined steel stack are examined. Recommendations to avoid such fracture are presented. It is shown that failure of such stack can occur in very cold...

Center Pivot Design Capacities in Eastern Colorado
Design system capacities were developed for center pivot sprinklers irrigating corn in the Central Great Plains by simulating irrigations for 60 yr of climatic data collected at Akron,...

Weather Modification for Use in High Plains
The users decision process on whether or not to utilize weather modification is not the same as the decision process involved in a scientific experiment. A decision to use weather modification...

Aguada Blanca Rockfill Dam with Metal Facing
The 148-ft (45-m) high, steel faced Aguada Blanca rockfill dam is described. After a few general data on the hydraulic scheme, dam and appurtenant structures, local climate, and geology...

Use of Precision Gravity Survey to Determine Bedrock
The density contrast between a deeply weathered schist and a marble which contains a small percentage less than 5% of clay-filled solution channels allows differentiation between the two...

Computing Evapotranspiration by Geostrophic Drag Concept
A procedure for computing regional evapotranspiration has been derived and tested. The assumptions underlying the model are essentially those used in the one dimensional mass transfer...

Houston Infiltration Abatement Program
The City of Houston, Texas, has embarked upon a program of infiltration abatement that provides for an orderly approach to the conception, development, and implementation of a plan to...

Stochastic Analysis of Air and Water Temperatures
Water temperature data in streams and lakes are relatively difficult to obtain compared with air temperature data and other related hydrologic and meteorologic data. A procedure is proposed...

Simulating Effects of Weather on Construction
Three simulation models used to evaluate the effect of weather on construction projects are described. Models differ in the ways decisions are made to work or not to work, in the ways...

Ecological Consequences of Winter Cloud Seeding
Some ecological consequences of cloud seeding are considered with special reference to winter orographic programs using silver iodide as the seeding agent. It appears that with present...

Waves off Mangalore Harbor—West Coast of India
Detailed statistical investigations of recorded waves off Mangalore on the West Coast of India are presented. Rayleigh distribution is found to describe adequately the distribution of...

Slope Stability in Tropically Weathered Diorite

Colorado Pilot Project: Design Hydrometeorology
A large, 4-yr winter cloud seeding pilot project has been started by the Bureau of Reclamation in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. This paper describes how precipitation, snowpack,...

Evaluating Water Surface Heat Exchange Coefficients
Field measurements of the water surface heat exchange coefficient, K, can be obtained using the methodology presented. The method was developed in conjunction with a hydraulic model study...

Foundation Practices for Talbingo Dam, Australia
The dam site for Talbingo Dam, a 530-ft high rockfill structure, is located in shyolite lava flows except for the upper right abutment, which is in tuff beds. On the right abutment the...
