Object-GAWSER : object-oriented Guelph all-weather storm-event runoff model : phase I, training manual : application of object-oriented simulation to hydrologic modeling by Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hydrologic models are currently used to understand the economic and ecological imacts of hydrologic processes. A new hydrologic model entitled Object-GAWSER was designed using an object-oriented platform to provide new insights into watershed hydrology. Object-GAWSER is a temperature index model that simulates upland watershed hydrology. Object-GAWSER is different from other hydrologic models in that each one of its components can be easily studied to understand its sensitivity to various inputs. First, this report will show how Object-GAWSER can be used to simulate the hydrologic behavior of forested, agricultural, and suburban watersheds. Second, this report will describe how Object-GAWSER was designed

Freeze-thaw processes and soil chemistry by Giles M Marion( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review broadly examines the interactions between freeze-thaw processes and soil chemistry, focusing on (1) the effect of solutes on physical properties such as freezing-point depression, unfrozen water and frost heaving, (2) the effect of freeze-thaw cycles and low temperatures on soil chemistry, and (3) modeling of freeze-thaw processes and chemistry. The presence of solutes causes a freezing-point depression, which increases the amount of unfrozen water in soils. Liquid films on soil particles provide the dominant route for the flow of water and associated solutes in frozen soils. In general, salts reduce the hydraulic conductivity and water flow to the freezing front, which reduces frost heaving. Solute exclusion during freezing leads to supersaturated solutions, which promotes the precipitation of secondary minerals in soils. At the watershed level, ionic concentrations in early melt- waters are often 2-9 times higher than snowpack concentrations. Temperature is the dominant factor controlling decomposition rates, with minimal detectable rates occurring at temperatures as low as -10 deg C; both bacteria and fungi are physiologically active at subzero temperatures. Extracellular enzymes are active in soils at temperatures as low as -20 deg C; this activity is thought to occur in unfrozen water on surfaces of soil particles. Nitrogen mineralization is reported at temperatures as low as 1 deg C and is promoted by freeze-thaw cycles. jg
River ice data instrumentation by Roger Lee Kay( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ice processes are capable of causing damage to Corps of Engineers flood control, water control, and navigation projects each year. Monitoring of ice and other physical parameters is done by instrumentation in some instances but is usually done manually. Measurements that require personnel to go on an ice cover can be risky or impossible, depending on the ice cover's stability and the individual's training. This study seeks to identify and rank the field measurements needed during winter conditions and the instrumentation required to make the measurements. Existing and developing instrumentation was evaluated for in-situ and remote sensing capabilities. Methods of transmitting, storing, and retrieving various types of ice data were explored for feasibility and practicality. Recommendations are identified regarding the types of instrumentation, data transmission, and storage methods that need to be improved or developed
RIGIDICE model of secondary frost heave by Patrick B Black( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revised version of an earlier attempt to numerically solve Miller's equations for the RIGIDICE model of frost heave is presented that corrects earlier mistakes and incorporates recent improvements in the scaling factors of ground freezing. The new version of the computer code also follows the concepts of Object Oriented Numerics (OON), which allow for easy modification and enhancements. Analysis of the program is accomplished with the symbolic math program MathCad. A brief sensitivity analysis of the input variables indicates that those parameters that calculate the hydraulic conductivity have the greatest influence on the variability of predicted heaving pressure.

Roof blisters : cause and cure by C. J Korhonen( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blisters are a major problem of built-up roof membranes. They are caused by voids built into the roof during construction. They develop into the characteristic dome-shaped humps by a breathing action driven by thermal cycling. A small pressure relief vent was patented by CRREL as a cost-effective way to repair blisters. Though these vents cannot prevent blisters from forming, they can lengthen a roof's service life by repairing the blisters before they break. Two demonstration projects were conducted to transfer the blister vent technology to the military community. Most participants in the demonstration projects found the vent easy to use and that it performed as designed. The main objection to the vent was its price. (MM)
