Iron-Bound Organic Carbon in Forest Soils: Quantification and Characterization
Iron oxide minerals play an important role in stabilizing organic carbon (OC) and regulating the biogeochemical cycles of OC on the earth surface. To predict the fate of OC, it is essential to understand the amount, spatial ...
Case Study of the Chicago River Watershed: Physical Modeling vs Data-driven Modeling of an Urban Watershed
We developed a water quality model for the highly urbanized Chicago River watershed based on hydrologic simulation using BASINS/HSPF. Appropriate consideration was given to the effective impervious area (EIA). The 5 y water ...
Developing a Coordinated Signal Control System for Urban Ring Road Under the Vehicle-Infrastructure Connected Environment
Ring roads have been widely built in many cities, especially in the central districts with excessively heavy traffic demands and frequently generated congestion. In order to improve the operations and reduce traffic delay ...
Deciphering the Tsunami Wave Impact and Associated Connection Forces in Open-Girder Coastal Bridges
In view of the widespread damage to coastal bridges during recent tsunamis (2004 Indian Ocean and 2011 in Japan) large-scale hydrodynamic experiments of tsunami wave impact on a bridge with open girders were conducted in ...
Seismic Response of the Three-Span Bridge with Innovative Materials Including Fault-Rupture Effect
The seismic performance of the SR99 Bridge with conventional and advanced details in Seattle, Washington, was studied via a nonlinear, time history analysis of a multidegree of freedom model. The bridge consists of three ...
