Modeling two-dimensional erosion process over infiltrating surfaces
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2001-05)
The physics-based modeling of the rainfall-runoff induced erosion process is accomplished. The existing one-dimensional erosion process equations are extended to two dimensions and kinematic wave approximation is used. The ...
Applicability of sediment transport capacity models for nonsteady state erosion from steep slopes
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2002-05)
The physics-based sediment transport equations are derived from the assumption that the sediment transport rate can be determined by a dominant variable such as flow discharge, flow velocity, slope, shear stress, stream ...
Kinematic wave model of bed profiles in alluvial channels
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-06)
A mathematical model, based on the kinematic wave (KW) theory, is developed for describing the evolution and movement of bed profiles in alluvial channels. The model employs a functional relation between sediment transport ...
Fuzzy logic algorithm for runoff-induced sediment transport from bare soil surfaces
Utilizing the rainfall intensity, and slope data, a fuzzy logic algorithm was developed to estimate sediment loads from bare soil surfaces. Considering slope and rainfall as input variables, the variables were fuzzified ...
Forecasting ambient air SO2 concentrations using artificial neural networks
(Taylor & Francis, 2006-07)
An Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) model is constructed to forecast SO 2 concentrations in Izmir air. The model uses meteorological variables (wind speed and temperature) and measured particulate matter concentrations ...
