  • Flood cleanup – watch out for mold and poor IAQ

    Clean up with air quality in mind Flooding can strike anywhere around waterways, especially in the spring, when lakes and rivers swell up with melt-water. This year, major floods have already hit areas in North and South America and other parts of the world, including Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, California, Chile, Peru, Indonesia and Russia, just to name a few. When water ...

  • Need Sandbags Fast? Make Your Own for Less

    When sandbags are needed, time and manpower are the critical elements to be able to protect homes, businesses and communities. With flooding being the number 1 natural disaster resulting in the loss of life and devastating property damage, being able to construct temporary structures quickly to keep the flood waters at bay is critical. The SandMaster can speed up the process and reduce the labor ...

  • Modelling and simulation of multiphase flow formation damage by fine migration including the multilayer deposition effect

    Fine migration is recognised as a source of permeability reduction in early stages of water flooding and during production operation in consolidated and unconsolidated formations. It causes permeability reduction and reduces the production rate. It is important to recognise this process and the parameters that affect it; it has been the subject of many researches. In this study, a formation ...

  • The Dutch are Mutch: Governance and Making Space for the River

    I grew up in St. Louis on the Big Rivers. I recall being hustled out of my dormitory one day during law school to join a sand-bagging party at West Alton, Missouri, near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi, during a big flood. Stacking sandbags over my head, and viewing the torrent of water at eye level, was a sobering experience, indeed. Nature was an awesome, fearful thing from that ...

  • The most efficient sandbag filling machine on the market

    The SandMaster takes the process of filling sandbags to a whole new level. Most sandbag filling machines simply replace the shovel and still require a piece of equipment to load the sand. That piece of equipment with the SandMaster can fill, transports, securely close and places the bags where they are needed. Maybe your community still fill bags the old fashion way, by hand. Anyone who has been ...

  • Flood Alleviation

    BritishFlora helps rescue lost London river from subterranean obscurity in award winning flood prevention. In the 1930's, engineers at the then Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich diverted a flood-prone section of the River Quaggy through an underground culvert so that new housing could beQuaggy built. In fine weather, the river was contained. But after heavy rainfall, the Quaggy became a ...

  • Decision Support Tools

    In most cases, a decision support system (DSS) is a computer-based information system supporting experts and / or laymen in analysing complex problems and finding the best suitable solution. The task of water frame work directive and flood directive demands to consider a lot of different possibilities and to calculate different variants. For this purpose, a DSS is very suitable. ...

  • Streamline based black–oil simulation and its application to waterflooding

    Finite–difference method is widely used for solving large–scale multiphase displacement problems. Drawbacks of finite difference methods are numerical dispersion, grid orientation, small time step size, and large computation time. To overcome these problems, streamline methods are being developed in which fluid is transported along the streamlines instead of the finite difference grid. This paper ...

  • Asymmetric responses of paspalum species to a soil moisture gradient

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that dallisgrass (Paspalum dilatatum Poir.) and bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flueggé), two of the most troublesome weed species in managed turfgrass, are both drought and flood tolerant. Water table depth gradient tanks were employed to identify habitat specialization and competitive differences between dallisgrass and bahiagrass. Shoot and rhizome final biomass and ...
