  1. Prestressed Concrete-Lined Pressure Tunnels

    Towards Improved Safety and Economical Design

    By T.D.Y.F. Simanjuntak

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Hydropower can be a source of sustainable energy, provided environmental considerations are taken into account and economic aspects of hydropower design are appropriately addressed. Using concrete-lined pressure tunnels instead of steel pipes may be economically attractive but may also have...

  2. Microcracking in Rock as Acoustic Emission

    By Tsuyoshi Ishida, Joseph Labuz

    Series: Geomechanics Research Series

    Rock stress and rock damaging are some of the main obstacles encountered when designing and constructing engineering projects with rock. This book will provide a basis to interpret acoustic emission (AE) as damage processes in stressed rock, with applications to stress measurements, size effects,...

  3. Production of Colloidal Biogenic Selenium and Removal by Different Coagulation-Flocculation Approaches

    By Lucian C. Staicu

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Selenium (Se) is a chemical element of concern due to its toxicity and increasing anthropogenic release to the environment. Se oxyanions, selenite and selenate, are water-soluble, bioavailable and toxic, whereas elemental selenium, Se(0), is solid and less toxic. Nevertheless, Se(0) is potentially...

  4. Transboundary Water Management and the Climate Change Debate

    By Anton Earle, Ana Elisa Cascao, Stina Hansson, Anders Jägerskog, Ashok Swain, Joakim Öjendal

    Series: Earthscan Studies in Water Resource Management

    Climate change has an impact on the ability of transboundary water management institutions to deliver on their respective mandates. The starting point for this book is that actors within transboundary water management institutions develop responses to the climate change debate, as...

  5. What is Land For?

    The Food, Fuel and Climate Change Debate

    Edited by Michael Winter, Matt Lobley

    In recent decades agricultural commodity surpluses in the developed world have contributed to a mantra of 'land surplus' in which set-aside, extensification, alternative land uses and 'wilding' have been key terms in debates over land. Quite suddenly all this has changed as a consequence of rapidly...

  8. Water Wave Scattering

    By Birendra Nath Mandal, Soumen De

    The theory of water waves is most varied and is a fascinating topic. It includes a wide range of natural phenomena in oceans, rivers, and lakes. It is mostly concerned with elucidation of some general aspects of wave motion including the prediction of behaviour of waves in the presence of obstacles...
