  2. Further development and application of GEOFRAC flow to a geothermal reservoir

    VecchiarelliI, Alessandra
    GEOFRAC is a three-dimensional, geology-based, geometric-mechanical, hierarchical, stochastic model of natural rock fracture systems. The main characteristic of GEOFRAC is that is based on statistical input representing fracture patterns in the field in form of the fracture intensity P₃₂ (fracture area per volume) and the best estimate fracture size E(A). Recent developments in GEOFRAC allow the user to calculate the flow in a fractured medium. For this purpose the fractures are modeled as parallel plates and the flow rate can be calculated using the Poisseuille equation. This thesis explores the possibility of the application of GEOFRAC to model a geothermal...

  8. Evaluation of rainfall-induced landslide transit characterization

    Chen, Yi-Ting, Civ. E. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    As landslide hazard has intensified in the past decades, the development of landslide hazard evaluation systems has become more and more important. However, not much attention is paid to discussing the landslide transition in new and reoccurring landslides between different triggering events. A region in the central Taiwan, the Chenyulan River basin with the landslides from three typhoon events, Typhoons Toraji, Mindulle and Sinlaku, is selected for landslide hazard analysis in this study. The Rainfall-induced Landslide Hazard Rating System is developed and applied in the landslide transit characterization analyses. The results show that landslide transit characterization varies according to geological...

  9. Prediction of in situ consolidation parameters of Boston Blue Clay

  10. Re-analysis of deep excavation collapse using a generalized effective stress soil model

    Corral Jofré, Gonzalo Andrés
    This thesis re-analyzes the well-documented failure of a 30m deep braced excavation underconsolidated marine clay. Prior analyses of the collapse of the Nicoll Highway have relied on simplified soil models with undrained strength parameters based on empirical correlations and piezocone penetration data. In contrast, the current research simulates the engineering properties of the key Upper and Lower Marine Clay units using a generalized effective stress soil model, MIT-E3, with input parameters calibrated using laboratory test data obtained as part of the post-failure site investigation. The model predictions are evaluated through comparisons with monitoring data and through comparisons with results of...

  11. Real-time modeling of river basin response using radar-generated rainfall maps and a distributed hydrologic database

    Garrote, Luis
    by Luis Garrote.

  12. The use of a distributed hydrologic model to predict dynamic landslide susceptibility for a humid basin in Puerto Rico

    Kamal, Sameer A. (Sameer Ahmed)
    This thesis describes the use of a distributed hydrology model in conjunction with a Factor of Safety (FS) algorithm to predict dynamic landslide susceptibility for a humid basin in Puerto Rico. The Mameyes basin, located in the Luquillo Experimental Forest in Puerto Rico, was selected for modeling based on the rich ensemble of soil, vegetation, topographical, meteorological and historic landslide data available. The basin was parameterized into the TIN-based Real-time Integrated Basin Simulator (tRIBS) with particular emphasis on vegetation parameters for broadleaf evergreen trees in tropical climates. The basin was forced with precipitation data that included a synthesized rainfall event...
