Overland flow treatment of wastewater : interim report by Charles A Carlson( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Land application has been suggested as an effective, low-cost method for advanced treatment of wastewater from military reservation treatment plants. This study is being conducted to determine the mechanisms involved in wastewater treatment by overland flow so that operational feasibility, design, and performance criteria can be more accurately evaluated. A model 5 ft wide and 20 ft long was prepared with grass sod and a low-permeable Susquehanna clay to a 6-in. depth at a 2% slope. Secondary effluent from a model treatment plant was supplemented with 13.4 mg/l of nitrogen as ammonium nitrate and 0.2 mg/l of cadmium, copper, lead, manganese, nickel, and zinc to simulate average wastewater. The study was conducted for 12 weeks with effluent applied by flooding from the upper end of the slope at 0.5 in./day (6-hr periods) for 4 days per week. The wastewater was generally distributed into 20, 30, and 50% for subflow, evapotranspiration, and runoff, respectively. Analyses showed that 100, 95, 91, and 75% of the ammonium, nitrate, and organic nitrogen and phosphorus, respectively, were retained in the model. The loss of 25% of the applied phosphorus in runoff indicated a need for more surface contact, probably obtainable by increasing the model length. The subflow analyses showed excellent removal of nitrogen, phosphorus, and most heavy metals indicating effective removal mechanisms by the soil during the study period

Geologic, geoarchaeologic, and historical investigation of the discovery site of ancient remains in Columbia Park, Kennewick, Washington( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The site of the discovery of the ancient human remains known as Kennewick Man has gained international attention. On-site study during December 1997 focused principally on one question: is the geologic setting consistent with the 9,OOO-yr age reported for the human remains? Other objectives for the study included determining if there was evidence for a specific cultural affiliation for the remains, if there was evidence for either intentional of accidental burial, and if the stratigraphic layers were in place. The principal landform at the site is a terrace of the Columbia River, comprising fine-grained sediments accumulated in quiet water. The presence of the Mazama teptira, a volcanic ash later correlated throughout the Pacific Northwest, established that this landform is more than 6,700 years old. Stratigraphic horizons traceable over the length of the study site provided datable materials to indicate that the layers are relatively undisturbed and span at least 15,000 years of geologic time. No evidence for cultural affiliation was encountered, and the question of accidental versus intentional burial is still open. The limited scope of this study did not allow definition of the three-dimensional geometry of the landform and its relationship to regional geology
An evaluation of movable-bed tidal inlet models by Subhash C Jain( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of movable-bed tidal inlet hydraulic models in predicting prototype behavior, by comparing model predictions with the observations made in the prototype, and to examine the scaling requirements for such models. Seven model studies were conducted by WES during the period 1939 to 1969. Calibrations of five of these models, as measured by bed topography changes, are evaluated by means of quantitative indicators, including correlation coefficients and root-mean-square (rms) error. The values of correlation coefficients, disregarding measurement errors in model and prototype soundings, were generally low and those of rms error high. Evaluation of data from the Galveston Harbor entrance model revealed that the shoaling rates and distribution along the navigation channel predicted by the model are not in good agreement with the prototype data. It was concluded that the model reproduction of details of bed topography was less accurate than that which might have been obtained had the proposed similitude criteria been used, and had more complete prototype data been available for calibration. Disagreement between model and prototype is believed to have been due to: scale effects introduced by nonsimilarity ofthe physical processes; insufficient prototype data for calibration and verification; oversimplification of the available prototype data for use in the model study; and experimental errors

Wastewater treatment on soils of low permeability : interim report by Ronald E Hoeppel( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study was limited to land treatment as a means of achieving advanced wastewater purification. Land treatment has the advantage of incorporating the recycling concept directly into its treatment mode, resulting in replacement rather than depletion of natural resources. Also, some form of control over ecologically damaging components is retained. This report presents results of a literature review on various methods of treating wastewater on land and also presents results of model tests of the overland flow method, with particular emphasis on nitrification and denitrification. Two types of soil systems for overland flow treatment of wastewater were investigated during these model tests. One soil was from an 8-year-old commercial cannery wastewater treatment site. The other was from an untreated natural site in a national forest that was low in indigenous soil organic matter; consequently, this latter system was amended with sludge in order to increase its organic matter content. Thus, both experimental soils represented soil systems that had more organic matter and biological activity than an average heavy clay soil

Comparison of numerical and physical hydraulic models, Masonboro Inlet, North Carolina by D. Lee Harris( Book )

2 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four models of Masonboro Inlet, North Carolina, have been developed in a program for assessing the value of models in investigating coastal inlet hydraulics problems. A distorted scale, fixed-bed physical model, a lumped parameter numerical model, and two two-dimensional numerical models were included in the study. Hydrodynamic equations which describe the two-dimensional flow in tidal inlets are developed in an appendix to this report. The Navier-Stokes equations are integrated vertically and time-averaged to form the governing equations for two-dimensional flow. This procedure eliminates a great deal of unnecessary detail about small-scale motions but retains terms descriptive of the interactions between small- and large-scale flow. A comparison of experimental results obtained with a physical model and calculations made with numerical models with the prototype records shows that, in general, the models simulate tidal height more satisfactorily than tidal current. Results obtained with one of the two-dimensional numerical models were much inferior to the results obtained with the other. The basic design of both two-dimensional numerical models was similar, but there were many subtle differences, indicating that a clear understanding of the modeling process is essential to success in modeling tidal flows

Dolos armor units used on rubble-mound breakwater trunks subjected to nonbreaking waves with no overtopping : final report by Robert D Carver( Book )

3 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigation describes a portion of a research effort to provide fundamental data for the design of rubble-mound breakwaters. This report addresses the use of dolos armor on breakwater trunks subjected to nonbreaking waves and with no overtopping. The majority of the tests reported herein were designed to determine the stability coefficient, K, and runup and rundown values for the above conditions. Additional limited tests were conducted to show what effects (1) varying the first underlayer stone material from 1/5 to 1/20 of the armor weight (Wr) would have on armor stability, wave runup, and wave rundown; (2) placing the dolosse in selected geometric patterns would have on stability; and (3) reducing the number of dolosse used in the cover layer would have on stability
