Geotechnical engineering of embankment dams

The purpose of this ebook is to give a "state of practice", quite highlighting universal difficulties, error and omissions. issues addressed comprise embankment dams, weathering tactics, geotechnical investigations, and beginning grouting.

Biodegradable polymers for industrial applications

Nearly all of plastic items are made of petroleum-based artificial polymers that don't degrade in a landfill or in a compost-like surroundings. for this reason, the disposal of those items poses a major environmental challenge. An environmentally-conscious substitute is to design/synthesize polymers which are biodegradable.

Water Management and Water Loss

Water administration and Water Loss features a number of papers and articles written by way of a number of across the world known experts within the box of water loss relief. The articles were drawn jointly from IWA meetings prior to now five years and supply information of the way water losses from Municipal distribution structures should be lowered.
