Greening the Maple

Canadian Ecocriticism in Context Vol. 7

 

University of Calgary Press, 2013.

Título de la serie/colección: Energy, Ecology, and the Environment series. ISSN 1919-7144,

ISBNs 9781552385487 9781552385463 9781552385470 9781552385494

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Ecocriticism can be described in very general terms as the investigation of the many ways in which culture and the environment are interrelated and conceptualized. Ecocriticism aspires to understand and often to celebrate the natural world, yet it does so indirectly by focusing primarily on written texts. Hailed as one of the most timely and provocative developments in literary and cultural studies of recent decades, it has also been greeted with bewilderment or scepticism by those for whom its aims and methods are unclear. This book seeks to bring into view the development of ecocriticism in the context of Canadian literary studies. Selections include work by Margaret Atwood, Northrop Frye, Sherrill Grace, and Rosemary Sullivan.

Ground Improvement Case Histories

Chemical, Electrokinetic, Thermal and Bioengineering

 

Butterworth-Heinemann, 2014.

ISBNs 9780081001912

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Written by an international group of experts, Ground Improvement Case Histories: Chemical, Electrokinetic, Thermal and Bioengineering Methods provides over 700 pages of case-histories collected from all over the world. Each case-history provides an overview of the specific technology followed by applications, and in some cases, comprehensive back analysis through numerical modelling is discussed. The book includes methods for employing bacterial and biological treatment, and native vegetation for stabilizing problematic soils. Specific case-histories included in the book are: Effect of Drainage and Grouting for the World Longest Seikan Undersea Tunnel Construction, Cement/lime Mixing Ground Improvement for Road Construction on Soft Ground, Use of Jet Grouting in Deep Excavations, and Stabilization of Reactive Sulphide Mine Tailings using Water Cover Technology.

  • Provides recent case histories using chemical and bio-engineering methods by world-renowned engineering experts
  • Includes over 200 illustrations and 150 equations from relevant topics, including state-of-the-art chemical and bioengineering methods
  • Presents comprehensive analysis methods using numerical modelling methods
  • Case histories include the "Effect of Drainage and Grouting on the World's Longest Seikan Undersea Tunnel Construction" and "Cement/Lime Mixing Ground Improvement for Road Construction on Soft Ground"

Grünes Band - Modellregion für Nachhaltigkeit - Abschlussbericht des Forschungsvorhabens

 

Universitätsverlag Göttingen, 2010.

ISBNs 9783941875609

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Bund und Länder engagieren sich seit der deutschen Wiedervereinigung für die Bewahrung des ökologischen Potenzials am „Grünen Band“, der ehemaligen innerdeutschen Grenze. Im Rahmen von Erprobungs- und Entwicklungsvorhaben sowie Naturschutzgroßprojekten setzt sich das Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsichrheit (BMU), für den Erhalt, die Pflege und Entwicklung großräumiger Landschaftsräume am Grünen Band ein. Die Verknüpfung der Naturschutzziele mit regionaler Nachhaltigkeit gewinnt für deren dauerhafte Verankerung vor Ort zunehmend an Bedeutung. Die bislang unzureichend erfassten Wirkungen der Naturschutzförderung auf die Entwicklung der Regionen waren Anlass für das BMBF-Forschungsvorhaben „Grünes Band — Modellregion für Nachhaltigkeit“ (2007—2010). Regionalwissenschaftler der Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaft und Kunst (HAWK) untersuchten im interdisziplinären Verbund mit Wirtschaftswissenschaftlern der Universität Göttingen am Beispiel von vier Regionen die Wirkung der Bundesförderung auf die regionale Nachhaltigkeit. Der vorliegende Bericht präsentiert die disziplinären und interdisziplinären Ergebnisse sowie die jeweiligen und gemeinsam erarbeiteten Handlungsempfehlungen für Fördermittelgeber und –empfänger.

History of Water Supply and Governance in Kenya (1895-2005) Lessons and Futures

 

Tampere University Press, 2016.

ISBNs 9789520300593 9789520300609

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): This book on the History of Water Development in Kenya transverses through a matrix of infrastructural development, administration, policy, legal and legislation framework, and evolution of various water supply technologies in an inimitably comprehensive approach. The book has carefully constructed the development over one century timeline of water supply and provided the future prediction of the services. The book is a quest to track and understand the origin, the development and sustainability of water supplies within 100 years of its 1st water supply constructed by the railways as the pioneer of water supply in Kenya. It interrogates how the water legislations, policies and administration came to be and what the drivers of water supplies were, when the 1st water reforms mounted and the status of the reform implementation. It elucidates on the role of development partners in influencing the choice of technology, policy and legislative framework. Preparation of this book took fifteen years of passionate research from Kenya National Archives; Kenya Railways; Ministry of Water Development; Colonial archival materials at Rhodes House, Oxford, UK; and the British Institute in Eastern Africa. The research findings have been disseminated in several peer reviewed journals; and several presentations in local, regional and international conferences. Eng Ezekiel Nyangeri Nyanchaga is an Associate Professor, Department of Civil and Construction Engineering, University of Nairobi, Doctor of Technology holder in Civil Engineering, Tampere University of Technology, Finland. Professor Nyangeri is a licensed and practicing consulting engineer with over 35 years of professional experience and over 28 years of academic teaching experience at the University of Nairobi, Kenya.

Leak Detection

Technology and Implementation

 

IWA Publishing, 2013.

ISBNs 9781780404714

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Ageing infrastructure and declining water resources are major concerns with a growing global population. Controlling water loss has therefore become a priority for water utilities around the world. In order to improve efficiencies, water utilities need to apply good practices in leak detection. Leak Detection: Technology and Implementation assists water utilities with the development and implementation of leak detection programs. Leak detection and repair is one of the components of controlling water loss.  In addition, techniques are discussed within this book and relevant case studies are presented. This book provides useful and practical information on leakage issues.
