    • Bivariate Rainfall and Runoff Analysis Using Entropy and Copula Theories 

      Singh, Vijay P.; Zhang, Lan (2012-09-24)
      Multivariate hydrologic frequency analysis has been widely studied using: (1) commonly known joint distributions or copula functions with the assumption of univariate variables being independently identically distributed ...
    • Derivation of 2D Power-Law Velocity Distribution Using Entropy Theory 

      Fontana, Nicola; Marini, Gustavo; Singh, Vijay P. (2013-04-08)
      The one-dimensional (1D) power law velocity distribution, commonly used for computing velocities in open channel flow, has been derived empirically. However, a multitude of problems, such as scour around bridge piers, ...
    • Derivation of Furrow Geometry Using Entropy Theory 

      Singh, V. P. (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2012)
      The instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) is a commonly used method for computing surface runoff hydrographs from small watersheds. Assuming travel time as a random variable, a general equation for IUH is derived using the ...
    • Derivation of Rating Curves Using Entropy Theory 

      Singh, V. P. (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2010)
      Using the entropy theory, this study derives the stage‐discharge relation, often called the rating curve, which is based on two simple constraints: (1) the total probability and (2) the mean logarithmic discharge. Parameters ...
    • Entropy approach for 2D velocity distribution in open-channel flow 

      Fiorentino, Mauro; Fontana, Nicola; Marini, Gustavo; De Martino, Giuseppe; Singh, Vijay P. (2011-11-21)
      In this paper, considering time-averaged velocity as a random variable, two-dimensional (2D) velocity distributions in open-channel flow have been derived based on the Shannon entropy concept and the principle of maximum ...
    • An IUH Equation Based on Entropy Theory 

      Singh, V. P. (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2011)
      The instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) is a commonly used method for computing surface runoff hydrographs from small watersheds. Assuming travel time as a random variable, a general equation for IUH is derived using the ...
    • Novel, Conserved RNA Secondary Structures in MHV-A59, Bovine Coronavirus (BCoV) and MERS-CoV 

      Polamraju, Vinathi S (2018-04-30)
      Betacoronaviruses are a subgroup of viruses in the family Coronaviradae known to cause an array of diseases in humans and animals. In this study, we aim to determine the RNA secondary structures of Mouse Hepatitis Virus, ...
