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.

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.

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.

Mitigation of siltation in farm water storages. May 1969.

R. T. Hattersley & R. C. Nelson
Present practices for the prevention of siltation in rural storages are reviewed in this report and compared with overseas practices. An anlysis of the effectivesness of conventional silt tanks is provided based on the approximate theories for settling of granular solids in sedimentation basins. A limited gtoup of case studies was made in an endeavour to highlight significant factors for the control and prevention of siltation in rural storages as topics for further research.

Discusses importance of hydrological data collection. Present state of data collection in Papua New Guinea., New Britain, New ireland, Bougainville and Manus. Need for a national network. Detailed plan given, togther with proposals for training the indigenous people.

Flood forecasting for the City of Launceston. August 1960.

D. N. Foster
Based on rainfall records at seven index stations to predict peak discharge and time of peak. The warning period for overtopping levees is approximately fifteen hours and the accuracy of the estimate plus or minus 15 %.

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.

Wind induced oscillations of power station stacks. October 1962.

C. R. Dudgeon
Wind induced oscillations of welded steel smokestacks at Ptrmont have led to local buckling and fatigue cracks near the base. Observed double-amplitudes of the tops at 200 nfeet have been 2 to three feet. The most direct means of eliminating periodic interference or "buffeting' would be to prevent the regular shedding of eddies from upstream cylinders. The fitting of spoilers to the stacks of the kind investigated by Scruton and Walsh and by Weaver. The...

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.

Non-continuous porous media flow. November 1965.

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.

D. K. Robinson
A generalised model to predict the the estimated annual economic loss in the river valley, and expected annual deviations.
