Finite element solution of two-regime flow towards wells. December 1973.

P. S. Huyakorn
The report has two parts. The first deals with the general theory, variation principles, and finite element methods for confined and unconfined flow problems. Numerical solutions for several transient and steady flow cases in graphical form. The second discusses verification of the analysis by laboratory and field investigations. Type curve methods developed for determining aquifer hydraulic coefficients are presented. Typical pumping test results are compared with the numerical solutions.

Monkey Mia: a hydrodynamic investigation. June 1998.

D. A. Luketina, I. P. King & L. M. Lyons
This report outlines the methodology and results of a RMA10 hydrodynamic model investigation funded by the Department of Conservation and Land management (W.A.) into the hydrodynamics of Monkey Mia lagoon and Shark Bay. More specifically, the model results show the dilution of a variety of neutrally buoyant pollutant releases in Monkey Mia Lagoon (Red Cliff Bay). In addition, the key processes governing the dilution are elucidated.

Bridge Waterway Studies, Hume Highway, Gundagai. December 1963.

J. R. Ewers & D. N. Foster
Defines the limit of embankment for proposed highway bridge crossing over river flood plain. Various lengths of embankment and heights under range of flood conditions. Embankment caused very little rise in flood stage until it penetrated a strong current which traversed the flood plain. Exact estimates of length, height and stage are given.

A generalised model for flood loss estimation. September 1970.

D. K. Robinson
A generalised model to predict the the estimated annual economic loss in the river valley, and expected annual deviations. The effects of the detention reservoir, land use changes and flood mitigation measures are evaluated. The model may be modified easily to yield a loss estimate for any storm or flood of specified characteristics.

Non-continuous porous media flow. November 1965.

K. K. Watson
Non-continuous unsteady flow in unsaturated porous materials is defined and it is shown that time-dependent problems of this type, having varying bnoundary conditions, are represntative of many commonly occurring complex field situations. Experimental design and construction with literature review. Drainage of an initially saturated sand column to atmosphere at its base is studied from experimental and analytical viewpoint noting the hydrological characteristics of the sand fraction under dynamic conditions. Comparison of measured and computed moisture...

W C Glamore, A M Badenhop & E K Davey
UNSW Water Research Laboratory Report No. 246

Hydraulic grade line determination in urban drainage systems. October 1997.

J. E. Ball
Describes the hydraulic theory and its applications for the analysis of Hydraulic Grade Lines in urban stormwater drainage systems. Also describes the computer software called STNET.

Evaluation and imptovement of quality characteristics of urban stormwater. October 1976.

Ian Cordery
Stormwater from three Sydney urban catchments show that in separately sewered areas has a greater concentration and carries a greater total load of pollutants than effluent from secondary sewage treatment plants. Pollution and nutrient indicators are highly concentrated in the first flush of a storm, but fall rapidly to low levels. An important exception is that phosphate concentration remains approximately constant. When the discharge increases sharply, the suspended solids and phosphates increase slightly. Faecal coliform...

Domestic water use in the New Guinea Highlands: the case of the Raiapu Enga. May 1973.

R Feacham
Study of traditional patterns of water use. Data reported for the Raiapu Enga clan in the Saka Valley near Wapenamanda in the Western Highlands. Regional and environment and culture briefly described. Attitudes to water, including fear of poison,, female contamination. Sources are natural streams, rivers and springs. Rainwater also in the wet season. Pollution status varies from relatively clean to human and porcine faecal material. Water is collected in late afternoons in gourds, bamboos, tins...

Canberra Lakes Scheme dam crest profile. March 1960.

UNSW Water Research Laboratory Report No. 14

Report on loss coefficients for corrugated mesh cooling water screens. August 1961.

D. N. Foster
UNSW Water Research Laboratory Report No. 43

Gove Northern Territory harbour feasibilty studies. March 1968.

P. B. Stone, D. N. Foster & R. C. Nelson
Investigations to provide design data for shipping operations on the gulf of Carpentaria at Gove.Waves due to trade winds and tropical cyclones were forecast for two possible harbour locations. The likely characteristics of seiche at one site was found unlikely to affect shipping. Current and sand movements were studied. Model studies investigated breakwater overtopping and harbour protection.

Seepage Control with Plastic Membranes: A Literature Surve/ and Annotated Bibliography. January 1962.

T. R. Fietz & J. R. Burton

Monthly streamflow extension with multiple regression techniques. January 1976.

G. L. Wright
Presents a procedure for estimating monthly streamflow data for a given gauging station by multiple regression analysis by using surrounding stations with longer records. This need arises when a when a gauging network has stations established or discontinued at different times, or when there are gaps in records.

Berowra Creek: a hydrodynamic investigation. June 1998.

D. A. Luketina, D. C. van Senden & D. Piper
This report outlines the methodology for the analysis and interpretation of the results of a field investigation carried out in 1995 into the hydrodynamics of Berowra Creek, New South Wales. This investigation is centred around a three month set of data collected from May to August 1995. The data analysis is used to elucidate dominant physical processes so that models can be developed to predict flushing rates within the estuary.

Hydraulic investigations into decanting from IEA wastewater treatment plants. January 1988.

G. M. Witheridge & D. L. Wilkinson
Describes an investigation into the mechanisms responsible for sludge carry-over during decant from intermittent aeration tanks. Three possible modes of failure were identified: 1. early carry-over which may occur during the transient phase at the start of decant; 2. a failure selectively to withdraw from the supernatant alone; 3. scour failure of the sludge blanket when the interfacial shear stress exceeds some critical value. This mode of failure is analagous to the onset of erosion...

Groundwater and well hydraulics: an annotated bibliography. February 1972.

P. S. Huyakorn & C. R. Dudgeon
Literature divided into 15 basic categories. Closing date 1971.

B. Cathers, C. E. Morris & P. M. Tate
Over the summer period December 1997/January 1998, a program of field work was undertaken as part of a research project to develop numerical models of the wastewater discharge systems entering the marine waters off Casey Station in Antarctica. Samples were evaluated for ammonia, total phosphorus, and four categories of bacteria of the study period , and levels compared with the wastewater treatment plant influent and effluent, and marine background levels. Elevated levels of all parameters...

A Program Suite for the Statistical Analysis and Comparison of Historical and Synthetic Hydrologic Records. July 1978.

M. A. Lindner
Synthetically generated records of streamflow, rainfall, and evaporation may be used in river valley simulation models as an aid to decision making. Before use, the records need to be validated by a comparison of their statistical properties with those of the historical records. A program is developed to assist in this comparison. A problem chosen as an example is described , and selective output is given to illustrate applications.

Investigation of groundwater impact from the disposal of sewage effluent at Goulburn, NSW. November 1999.

R. I. Acworth, N. Ashbolt & M. Bligh
Reports groundwater investigation of sewage effluent disposal facility near the Wollondilly River. Before expanding the facility, surface and groundwater conditions were investigated with regard to fluid conductivity in springs and seepages, lithology and groundwater conditions, chemical and microibiological testing. These to support an environmental impact study for the expansion of the facility. Recommendations were made for changing irrigation scheduling, regular monitoring of the impact, ponds should be designed to minimise leakage, salinity should be taken...
