Project Details

Title:Quantifying Mountain Basin Runoff Mechanisms for Better Hydrologic Design of Bridges and Culverts
Principal Investigators:Jeffrey D. Niemann
University:Colorado State University
Grant #:69A3551747108 (FAST Act)
Project #:MPC-537
RH Display ID:15694
Keywords:bridge design, culverts, ground transportation, guidelines, hydrology, infrastructure, rainfall, runoff


The objectives of this MPC research project are: (1) to determine the importance of saturation-excess runoff production for large storms that affect the design and performance of key surface transportation infrastructure and (2) to develop a generalized model for runoff production in mountainous basins that can be used by consultants to perform hydrologic analysis of transportation infrastructure. This project would allow expansion of a one-year research project that was recently awarded by CWCB to the PI and collaborators in Colorado Dam Safety into a two-year effort.
