FESWMS-TX TWO DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS OF BACKWATER AT BRIDGES: USER'S GUIDE AND APPLICATIONS

The objective of this project has been to modify and apply the computer program (FESWMS-TX) for the two dimensional hydrodynamic analysis of backwater at bridges. The work performed has been to simplify use of the computer program so that it may eventually become a part of the THYSYS system that is used throughout the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation. Application of the model to a portion of Walnut Creek near Martin Luther King Blvd. in Austin, Texas, was performed to help identify the various needed modifications. A detailed user's manual has been developed, which is a major part of this report. (Author)
