  • Orifice Plates to Control the Capacity of Terrace Intake Risers 

    Hua, Jian; Steichen, James M.; McEnroe, Bruce M. (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 1989)
    The flow in the conduit from upslope terraces JL must be controlled so that there is no excess hydraulic head under a lower terrace, causing water to flow up through the riser, which could result in the terrace overtopping ...
  • Micromechanical modelling of cemented sands under low amplitude oscillations

    Microstructural continuum modelling is applied to study the mechanical properties of cemented sands under low amplitude oscillatory loading. The effect of cement in sand is accounted for by considering adhesion in addition ...
  • A computer graphics system for the building of macromolecular models into electron density maps 

    Miller, James R.; Abdel-Meguid, Sherin; Rossman, Michael G.; Anderson, David C. (Wiley, 2007-09-27)
    A brief description of the Molecular Modeling System-X graphics system hardware is followed by an explanation of the language which has been developed to realize an `electronic Richards box'. A variety of commands permits ...
  • Effect of Paste-Aggregate Bond Strength on Behavior of Concrete 

    Darwin, David; Slate, F. O. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 1970-03)
    Coarse aggregate was coated with a thin layer of polystyrene to reduce paste-aggregate bond strength. The resulting concrete was compared to concrete containing uncoated control aggregate for strength, stiffness, and type ...
  • An evaluation of NEXRAD precipitation estimates in complex terrain 

    Young, Bryan; Nelson, Brian R.; Bradley, A. Allen; Smith, James A.; Peters-Lidard, Christa D.; Kruger, Anton; Baeck, Mary Lynn (American Geophysical Union, 1999-08-27)
    Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) precipitation estimates are used for hydrological, meteorological, and climatological studies at a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. The utility of radar-based precipitation ...
  • Evaluating NEXRAD Multisensor Precipitation Estimates for Operational Hydrologic Forecasting 

    Young, Bryan; Bradley, A. Allen; Krajewski, Witold F.; Kruger, Anton (American Meteorological Society, 2000-06)
    Next-Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) multisensor precipitation estimates will be used for a host of applications that include operational streamflow forecasting at the National Weather Service River Forecast Centers ...
  • Radar Beam Occultation Studies Using GIS and DEM Technology: An Example Study of Guam 

    Kucera, Paul A.; Krajewski, Witold F.; Young, Bryan (American Meteorological Society, 2004-07)
    Geographic information systems (GISs) combined with digital elevation models (DEMs) provide opportunities to evaluate weather radar beam blockage and other ground clutter phenomena. The authors explore this potential using ...
  • Composition and Distribution of Extracellular Polymeric Substances in Aerobic Flocs and Granular Sludge 

    Sturm, Belinda; Irvine, R. L.; Hausner, M.; Wilderer, P. A. (American Society for Microbiology, 2005-02)
    Extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) were quantified in flocculent and aerobic granular sludge developed in two sequencing batch reactors with the same shear force but different settling times. Several EPS extraction ...
  • Nickel solubility and precipitation in soils: a thermodynamic study 

    Peltier, Edward (Clay Minerals Society, 2006)
    The formation of mixed-metal-Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) phases similar to hydrotalcite has been identified as a significant mechanism for immobilization of trace metals in some environmental systems. These precipitate ...
