Geochemistry of Soil Radionuclides by Peng-Chu Zhang, Michael V. Brady

By Peng-Chu Zhang, Michael V. Brady

Ordinary issues in regards to the environmental destiny and power overall healthiness affects of radionuclides proceed to concentration curiosity on realizing the mechanisms controlling their delivery in soils and their organic availability. This paintings builds on either easy technological know-how and empirical engineering experiences to supply a mechanistic method of facilitate danger review and reasonably priced remediation approaches. The authors spotlight theories and applied sciences built in figuring out the destiny of radionuclides in soils, groundwater and in power nuclear waste repositories.

Mine Water: Hydrology, Pollution, Remediation by Paul L. Younger

By Paul L. Younger

Nowhere is the clash among fiscal growth and environmental caliber extra obvious than within the mineral extraction industries. The latter 1/2 the twentieth century observed significant advances within the reclamation applied sciences. notwithstanding, mine water pollutants difficulties haven't been addressed. in lots of circumstances, polluted mine water lengthy outlives the lifetime of the mining operation. because the real price of long term water therapy duties has develop into obvious, curiosity has grown within the applied sciences that might lessen the construction of infected water and make its remedy less expensive. this is often the 1st e-book to deal with the mine water factor head-on. The authors clarify the complexities of mine water toxins by means of reviewing the hydrogeological context of its formation, and supply an up to date presentation of prevention and therapy applied sciences. The e-book could be a necessary reference for all execs who stumble upon polluted mine water on a standard or occasional basis.

Correlations of Soil and Rock Properties in Geotechnical by Jay Ameratunga, Visit Amazon's Nagaratnam Sivakugan Page,

By Jay Ameratunga, Visit Amazon's Nagaratnam Sivakugan Page, search results, Learn about Author Central, Nagaratnam Sivakugan, , Braja M. Das

This ebook offers a one-stop connection with the empirical correlations used greatly in geotechnical engineering. Empirical correlations play a key position in geotechnical engineering designs and research. Laboratory and in situ trying out of soils can upload major price to a civil engineering venture. through the use of applicable empirical correlations, it really is attainable to derive many layout parameters, hence restricting our reliance on those soil exams. The authors have many years of expertise in geotechnical engineering, as expert engineers or researchers. the target of this e-book is to provide a severe assessment of a variety of empirical correlations stated within the literature, besides common values of soil parameters, within the mild in their adventure and data. This e-book may be a one-stop-shop for the working towards execs, geotechnical researchers and teachers searching for particular correlations for estimating sure geotechnical parameters. The empirical correlations within the kinds of equations and charts and ordinary values are collated from broad literature assessment, and from the authors' database.

Hilbert-Huang Transform Analysis of Hydrological and by A.R. Rao, E.-C. Hsu

By A.R. Rao, E.-C. Hsu

The Hilbert-Huang rework ((HHT) is a lately built process that's used to research nonstationary facts. Hydrologic and environmental sequence are, frequently, analyzed through the use of recommendations which have been constructed for desk bound info. This has ended in difficulties of interpretation of the implications. Environmental and hydrologic sequence are in most cases nonstationary. the fundamental aim of the cloth mentioned during this ebook is to investigate those facts by utilizing equipment in response to the Hilbert-Huang rework. those effects are in comparison to the implications from the conventional tools reminiscent of these according to Fourier rework and different classical statistical assessments.

In Situ Chemical Oxidation for Groundwater Remediation by Robert L. Siegrist

By Robert L. Siegrist

This quantity offers entire and up to date descriptions of ideas and practices of in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) for groundwater remediation. Chapters are in response to a decade of extensive learn, improvement, and demonstrations and classes realized from advertisement box functions. The meant viewers comprises remediation execs, choice makers, and working towards engineers and scientists who decide on, layout, and function ISCO remedial structures, and researchers trying to enhance the present state of the art. This quantity may still function an invaluable source to help remediation pros in employing and constructing ISCO applied sciences as successfully as possible.

Topics lined include:

  • Groundwater infection, web site remediation, and present ISCO expertise practices.
  • Fundamentals of chemical oxidation, using peroxide, permanganate, persulfate, and ozone oxidants, their reactions with contaminants of outrage, and their interactions with obviously taking place subsurface materials.
  • Transport and destiny of oxidants in the course of use in ISCO and to be had mathematical versions to help ISCO applications.
  • Combination of ISCO with different remedial applied sciences, together with in situ bioremediation and monitored traditional attenuation.
  • Evaluation of ISCO box functions, functionality completed, and classes learned.
  • Design and implementation of ISCO, together with expertise screening, conceptual layout, unique layout and making plans, and implementation and function tracking. Examples of approaches, techniques, and instruments are provided.
  • Site characterization for improvement of conceptual web site versions, remedy pursuits, and finish issues for ISCO applications.
  • Oxidant supply, contingency making plans, and ISCO procedure functionality monitoring.
  • ISCO expertise bills and sustainability.
  • Critical gaps in wisdom and examine must enhance ISCO idea, expertise improvement and applications.

Each bankruptcy during this quantity has been completely reviewed for technical content material by way of a number of specialists within the topic region covered.

Kanalinspektion: Zustände erkennen und dokumentieren by Klaus-Peter Bölke

By Klaus-Peter Bölke

Die four. Auflage des Fachbuchs ist wiederum ganz auf die Erfordernisse von Inspektionsfirmen, Ingenieurbüros und kommunalen Verwaltungen sowie der praxisbezogenen Lehre bei der Lehrlings- und Studentenausbildung an Fachschulen und Universitäten ausgelegt. Es wird eine klare Trennung zwischen fachlich inhaltlichem und handwerklichem Wissen vermittelt. Hauptthemen sind:

  • Ursache-Wirkungsprinzip für die Zustandserkennung,
  • Zustandsdefinitionen und Berücksichtigung der Vereinfachung der Umsetzung der EN 13508-2,
  • handwerkliche Grundregeln für die TV-Inspektion, auch unter Aufnahme neuer Inspektionsmethoden wie des „elektronischen Spiegels“.

Daneben bietet das Buch praxisbezogene Themen wie:

  • Materialspezifika,
  • Technikinformationen zu TV-Anlagen,
  • Dokumentation,
  • Hinweise zum Umgang mit Klassifizierungsmodellen,
  • Hinweise für den Aufbau eines effektiven Leistungsverzeichnisses sowie
