The Science of Water: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition

The Science of Water: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition

Frank R. Spellman

September 17, 2014

The Science of Water: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition contains a wealth of scientific information and is based on real-world experience. Building on the second edition, this text applies the latest data and research in the field, and addresses water contamination as a growing problem. The...

River Flow 2014

River Flow 2014

Anton J. Schleiss, Giovanni de Cesare, Mario J. Franca, Michael Pfister

August 12, 2014

The behaviour of river systems is a result of the complex interaction between flow, sediments, morphology and habitats. Furthermore, rivers are often used as a source of water supply and energy production as well as a waterway for transportation. The main challenge faced by river engineers today,...

Reservoir Sedimentation

Reservoir Sedimentation

Anton J. Schleiss, Giovanni de Cesare, Mario J. Franca, Michael Pfister

August 12, 2014

Despite the mechanisms of reservoir sedimentation being well known for a long time, sustainable and preventive measures are rarely taken into consideration in the design of new reservoirs. To avoid operational problems of powerhouses, sedimentation is often treated for existing reservoirs with...

Swiss Competences in River Engineering and Restoration

Swiss Competences in River Engineering and Restoration

Anton J. Schleiss, Jürg Speerli, Roger Pfammatter

August 12, 2014

Every year the Swiss Commission for Flood Protection (KOHS) of the Swiss Association for Water Management (SWV) organizes a symposium where professionals, officers of public administrations, and researchers exchange their experiences on special topics and key projects in river engineering and...

Coagulation and Ultrafiltration in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Pretreatment: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Coagulation and Ultrafiltration in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Pretreatment: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

S. Assiyeh Alizadeh Tabatabai

July 09, 2014

This study investigates the role of coagulation in enhancing hydraulic performance and permeate quality of UF membranes and provides insight into options for minimizing or ideally eliminating coagulation from UF pre-treatment to SWRO. Results show that coagulation improves UF hydraulic performance...

Algal Blooms and Membrane Based Desalination Technology: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Algal Blooms and Membrane Based Desalination Technology: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Loreen Ople Villacorte

May 29, 2014

Seawater desalination is rapidly growing in terms of installed capacity (~80 million m3/day in 2013), plant size and global application. An emerging threat to this technology is the seasonal proliferation of microscopic algae in seawater known as algal blooms. Such blooms have caused operational...

Advances in River Sediment Research

Advances in River Sediment Research

Shoji Fukuoka, Hajime Nakagawa, Tetsuya Sumi, Hao Zhang

August 15, 2013

Sediments, which constitute the surface of the Earth, start their journey to rivers with the energy obtained from rainfalls, fl oods and other natural processes. Due to transport of sediments, rivers develop with various appearances and functions, and play a crucial role in the activities of human...
