Watershed-scale Distributed Hydrologic Modeling and Assessment of Low Impact Development Features in White Oak Bayou, Houston, TX
This thesis proposes a method for modeling urban site-scale Low Impact Development (LID) features at the watershed-scale to evaluate the as-yet unknown performance of LID in a high intensity rainfall region. Increased ...
Quantifying Flood Risk and Hazard in Highly Urbanized Coastal Watersheds
Today, nearly half of the global population lives within 150 km of a coastline. As continued coastal development coincides with rising sea levels and more frequent and intense storms, the incidence, and cost of natural ...
Development of a Framework to Simulate Storm Surge-Induced Aboveground Storage Tank Spills
This thesis introduces a modeling framework for simulating the surface trajectory of aboveground storage tank (AST) spills caused by flotation failure during storm surge events. A single tank failure can be catastrophic ...
