  • Boat ramp application overview - Case Study

    Natural sand shorelines are not always adequate to support frequent boat loading and unloading. Unstable soil conditions, erosion, and fluctuating water levels combine to make vehicle access to shorelines difficult. The GEOWEB Cellular Confinement System is an ideal solution that provides dependable load support for boat launch areas. The GEOWEB cellular confinement system was developed jointly ...

  • Optimal waste load allocation using graph model for conflict resolution

    In this paper, a new methodology is proposed for waste load allocation in river systems using the decision support system (DSS) for the graph model for conflict resolution II (GMCRII), multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) analysis and the Multi-Objective Particle Swarm Optimization (MOPSO) algorithm. Minimization of total treatment and penalty costs and minimization of biological oxygen ...
