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 ...
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 ...
Distributed Hydrologic Modeling of Large Storm Events in the Houston-Galveston Region
In conjunction with the SSPEED Center, large rainfall events in the upper Gulf of Mexico are being studied in an effort to help design a surge gate to protect the Houston Ship Channel during hurricane events. When hurricanes ...
