Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion in the Upstream Oil and Gas Industry

Torben Lund Skovhus, Dennis Enning, Jason S. Lee
March 01, 2017

Microorganisms are ubiquitously present in petroleum reservoirs and the facilities that produce them. Pipelines, vessels, and other equipment used in upstream oil and gas operations provide a vast and predominantly anoxic environment for microorganisms to thrive. The biggest technical challenge...

Architectural Research Addressing Societal Challenges: Proceedings of the EAAE ARCC 10th International Conference (EAAE ARCC 2016), 15-18 June 2016, Lisbon, Portugal

Manuel Jorge Rodrigues Couceiro da Costa, Filipa Roseta, Joana Pestana Lages, Susana Couceiro da Costa
February 16, 2017

The escalating interdependecy of nations drives global geopolitics to shift ever more quickly. Societies seem unable to control any change that affects their cities, whether positively or negatively. Challenges are global, but solutions need to be implemented locally. How can architectural research...

Design of Prestressed Concrete to Eurocode 2, Second Edition

Raymond Ian Gilbert, Neil Colin Mickleborough, Gianluca Ranzi
January 30, 2017

The design of structures in general, and prestressed concrete structures in particular, requires considerably more information than is contained in building codes. A sound understanding of structural behaviour at all stages of loading is essential. This textbook presents a detailed description and...
