1D and 2D Methods for Modeling Floodplains under Storm Surge Conditions
This study evaluates a 1D and a 2D method for analyzing the combined effect of inland rainfall and hurricane-induced storm surge on a coastal floodplain. Horsepen Bayou near Clear Lake, southeast of Houston, Texas is ...
Assessing Biological Interactions and Potential Impacts of Emerging Carbonaceous Materials to Terrestrial Organisms
This research addresses the potential ecotoxicity of two emerging carbonaceous materials: C 60 and biochar. The use of these materials is rapidly increasing, as well as their potential for widespread applications. Thus, ...
Harmonic Wavelets Procedures and Wiener Path and Integral Methods for Response Determination and Reliability Assessment of Nonlinear Systems/Structures
In this thesis a novel approximate/analytical approach based on the concepts of stochastic averaging and of statistical linearization is developed for the response determination of nonlinear/hysteretic multi-degree-of-freedom ...
