  • Quasi 3D Modeling Flow and Contaminant Transport in Shallow Waters --- Using Multiple Depth-Averaged Two-Equation Closure Turbulence Models, CFD Software

    The ‘standard’ two-equation turbulence models, used widely in industry, cannot be directly used in depth-averaged modeling. Till now, the vast majority of quasi 3D numerical tools just can provide one depth-averaged 2-eq. k-ε model for modeling side-charge problem on single-level grid. Due to the absence of one ...

  • Optimisation of Corrosion Control for Lead in Drinking Water Using Computational Modelling Techniques

    In many respects, lead in drinking water has become a forgotten problem, since the mid 1980s when a range of environmental controls were implemented to reduce exposure to lead. This is largely because the sampling protocols, that underpin regulatory controls, are mostly inadequate and have tended to under-estimate the amount of lead that can be ...

  • Water and Energy

    Water and Energy – Threats and Opportunities creates an awareness of the important couplings between water and energy. It shows how energy is used in all the various water cycle operations and demonstrates how water is used – and misused – in all kinds of energy production and generation. Population increase, climate change and an increasing ...

  • Numerical Modelling of Hydrodynamics for Water Resources: Proceedings of the Conference on Numerical Modelling of Hydrod

    Overland flow modelling has been an active field of research for some years, but developments in numerical methods and computational resources have recently accelerated progress, producing models for different geometries and types of flows, such as simulations of canal and river networks. This volume describes a variety of simulation techniques ...

  • Modelling, Simulation and Control of Urban Wastewater Systems

    This book encourages and demonstrates an innovative approach to the design and operation of urban wastewater systems: integrated modelling and control. Consideration of sewer system, wastewater treatment plant and receiving water body as a single system (rather than as three moderately independent units as before) opens up new types of analyses ...

  • Functional Approach to Nonlinear Models of Water Flow in Soils

    This book is a work of applied mathematics focusing on the functional study of the nonlinear boundary value problems relating to water flow in porous media. As far as revealed by the literature, a systematic study of these models within the above mentioned framework has not been done and the book has been written with the belief that the abstract ...

  • Granular Dynamic Theory and Its Applications

    Granular Dynamic Theory and Its Applications introduces both theory and applications in detail, including differential dynamical models of granular shearing, dynamical strength characteristics and the excited response of granules subject to vibration, granular liquefaction properties and the mechanisms under vibration, granular flow theory and ...

  • Numerical Methods for Shallow-Water Flow

    A wide variety of problems are associated with the flow of shallow water, such as atmospheric flows, tides, storm surges, river and coastal flows, lake flows, tsunamis. Numerical simulation is an effective tool in solving them and a great variety of numerical methods are available. The first part of the book summarizes the basic physics of ...

  • Recent Advances in Problems of Flow and Transport in Porous Media

    This volume focuses on recent advances in the modelling of flow and transport in porous media. The first two sections deal with new model approaches and mathematical methods, including error estimates for approximate solutions, parameter sensitivity studies, and solution techniques for degenerate parabolic equations. The third section ...

  • Xenobiotics in the Urban Water Cycle

    The presence of xenobiotics in the aquatic environment is seen as one of the biggest challenges for a sustainable water future. Thus, there is a need to understand, in an integrated manner, the sources, flow paths, fate and effects of xenobiotics in the urban water cycle.This book is an authoritative and comprehensive reference source covering: ...

  • Computer Modeling of Free-Surface and Pressurized Flows

    Computers are widely used for the analysis, design, and operation of water resource projects. This gives accurate results, allowing the analysis of complex systems which may not have been possible otherwise, and the investigation and comparison of several different alternatives in a short time, thereby reducing the project costs, optimizing ...

  • Arctic-Subarctic Ocean Fluxes

    The two-way oceanic exchanges that connect the Arctic and Atlantic oceans through subarctic seas are of fundamental importance to climate. Change may certainly be imposed on the Arctic Ocean from subarctic seas, including a changing poleward ocean heat flux that is central to determining the present state and future fate of the perennial sea-ice. ...

  • Vegetation, Water, Humans and the Climate

    This book presents a state-of-the-art scientific overview of the influence of terrestrial vegetation and soils within the Earth system. It deals especially with interactions between the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere via the hydrological cycle and their interlinkage with anthropogenic activities. Measurements gathered in integrated field ...

  • API SPEC 16D Standard for Exploration & Production

    GeneralThese specifications establish design standards for systems, that are used to control blowout preventers (BOPs) and associated valves that control well pressure during drilling operations.
