  • One-dimensional finite difference approach for sedimentation process in sand filled reservoirs 

    Olufayo, O. A.; Ochieng, George M.; Ndambuki, Julius M.; Otieno, Fredrick Alfred O. (Academic Journals, 2011-04-04)
    There have been continuing efforts to decrease silt deposits due to interstitial blockage in sand-filled reservoirs. However, estimating weir height to allow for deposition of required grain sizes is difficult. This paper ...
  • A Process-based model for fluidized bed in sand filled reservoirs 

    Olufayo, O. A.; Ochieng, George M.; Ndambuki, Julius M.; Otieno, Fredrick Alfred O. (ASCE: American Society of Civil Engineers, 2011)
    Arid and semi-arid regions are prone to severe water inadequacies. They are characterized by little rainfall resulting in several seasonal rivers. Seasonal riverbeds provide opportunity for water to be stored in river’s ...
