Computational modelling of turbulent velocity structures for an open channel flow using Karhunen-Loeve expansion
(World Scientific Publishing Company, 2007)
This paper develops an analytical two-part covariance kernel from velocity correlations across a two-dimensional (vertical and flow directions) Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) flow field. This will form the basis of a ...
Characterization of wind turbulence near New Zealand shelterbelts
Studies were conducted to characterize the flow-field near shelterbelts to understand the atmospheric transport and diffusion of airborne agricultural particulates such as spray drift, pollen, and dust. Sonic 3-D anemometers ...
Multiple metal cations as spray deposit tracers and evaluation of the AGDISP ground boom spray drift model
(ASTM International, 2009-05)
The determination of spray drift by agrichemicals in field applications is laborious and expensive. Dyes have been used as tracers to reduce workloads and costs, but these methods have technical drawbacks. Metal cations ...
Two-dimensional flood plain flow. II: Model validation
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2001-10-01)
Information from two floods on the Waihao River rural flood plain in New Zealand was used to validate a two-dimensional flood plain flow model, Hydro2de. An aerial photogrammetric survey digitally described the terrain. ...
