Geotechnical engineering of embankment dams

The purpose of this e-book is to provide a "state of practice", fairly highlighting universal difficulties, blunders and omissions. subject matters addressed contain embankment dams, weathering methods, geotechnical investigations, and starting place grouting.

Biodegradable polymers for industrial applications

Nearly all of plastic items are made up of petroleum-based man made polymers that don't degrade in a landfill or in a compost-like setting. hence, the disposal of those items poses a significant environmental challenge. An environmentally-conscious substitute is to design/synthesize polymers which are biodegradable.

Water Management and Water Loss

Water administration and Water Loss includes a number of papers and articles written by means of numerous the world over known experts within the box of water loss aid. The articles were drawn jointly from IWA meetings prior to now five years and supply info of the way water losses from Municipal distribution structures should be diminished.

Agro-Industrial Wastes as Feedstock for Enzyme Production. Apply and Exploit the Emerging and Valuable Use Options of Waste Biomass

Agro-industrial Wastes as Feedstock for Enzyme creation: practice and take advantage of the rising and beneficial Use techniques of Waste Biomass explores the present state of the art bioprocesses in enzyme construction utilizing agro-industrial wastes with recognize to their new release, present equipment of disposal, the issues confronted by way of waste and legislation, and capability value-added protocols for those wastes.

Also, reduction of TOC was observed to occur if hydrogen peroxide was present. A detailed mechanism of reactions was proposed to justify the experimental findings. 5. Natural Organic Matter and the Bromate Issue Because trihalomethane compounds were identified in chlorinated water from drinking water-treatment plants [37], multiple research studies have addressed their efforts to identify the nature of dissolved natural organic matter and the action of oxidants to yield by-products, usually called disinfection by-products.

In addition, the carbonate ion radical also reacts with hydrogen peroxide, if present in water, to regenerate the carbonate ion and the hydroperoxide ion radical that eventually leads to the hydroxyl radical in the presence of ozone. Consequently, there could be a fraction of carbonates that do not inhibit the ozone decomposition in water. Notice that in some cases when ozone is applied, hydroxyl radical oxidation is negligible or does not develop because direct ozonation is very fast. This is, for example, the case in the ozonation of phenolic compounds under neutral or alkaline conditions, where the rate constants of the direct ozone reactions vary between 106 and TM Copyright © 2003 by Marcel Dekker, Inc.
