  • Lin, Chi-Yu; Holley, Edward R.; Maxwell, W. Hall C. (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Water Resources Center, 1977-04)
    Analytical and experimental investigations were carried out for three-dimensional buoyant surface jets with strong ambient flow but without boundary attachment. A numerical model in curvilinear coordinates was developed ...

  • Yang, Chih Ted; Stall, John B. (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Water Resources Center, 1975-06)
    A standard procedure for determining the distribution and variation of the heat assimilative capacity of a river has been developed. Hydraulic geometry equations for the Sangamon River Basin are used to provide the necessary ...

  • Yang, Chih Ted; Stall, John B. (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Water Resources Center, 1974-07)
    The relationship between rate of sediment transport and rate of potential energy expenditure has been studied in detail. Unit stream power, defined as the time rate of potential energy expenditure per unit weight of water, ...
