    • Value Proposition of COBie at University of Washington 

      Astaneh Asl, Bita
      Building Information Modeling (BIM), has been practiced for several years by designers and contractors in design and construction phases. After receiving a positive feedback of the BIM in industry, owners are now interested ...
    • Wave Breaking and Turbulence at a Tidal Inlet: Shoals, Currents, & Winds 

      Zippel, Seth
      Field measurements of waves, currents, winds, and turbulence collected from surface drifters at New River Inlet (NC) are used to characterize wave breaking. Breaking regions are identified along drifter tracks by three ...
    • Wave Breaking Dissipation in a Fetch-Limited Sea 

      Schwendeman, Michael Scott (2013-04-17)
      Coupled remote sensing and <italic>in situ</italic> measurements of strongly-forced, fetch-limited waves are applied to assess the role of breaking in an evolving wavefield. Wave growth follows accepted fetch-limited ...
    • Wave-supported gravity currents in continental shelves 

      Hooshmand Salemian, Abbas
      Wave-supported gravity currents (WSGC) are one of the most important processes causing cross shelf sediment transport. This dissertation studies the physics behind WSGC in continental shelves using experimental observations. ...
