Numerical Modelling of Ice Floods in the Ning-Meng Reach of the Yellow River Basin

Chunqing Wang
January 23, 2018

The Ning-Meng reach of the Yellow River basin is located in the Inner Mongolia region at the Northern part of the Yellow River. Due to the special geographical conditions, the river flow direction is towards the North causing the Ning-Meng reach to freeze up every year in wintertime. Both during...

Wastewater Treatment and Reuse: Theory and Design Examples: (Two-Volume Set)

Syed R. Qasim, Guang Zhu
January 17, 2018

This book will present the theory involved in wastewater treatment processes, define the important design parameters involved, and provide typical values of these parameters for ready reference; and also provide numerical applications and step-by-step calculation procedures in solved examples....

Controlling Biofouling in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Membrane Systems

Nirajan Dhakal
January 16, 2018

Seawater desalination is a rapidly growing coastal industry that is increasingly threatened by algal blooms. Depending on the severity of algal blooms, desalination systems may be forced to shut down because of clogging and/or poor feed water quality. To maintain stable operation and provide good...

Flexibility in Adaptation Planning: When, Where and How to Include Flexibility for Increasing Urban Flood Resilience

Mohanasundar Radhakrishnan
January 09, 2018

The magnitude and urgency of the need to adapt to climate change is such that addressing it has been taken up by the United Nations as one of the sustainable development goals - Goal 13 (SDG13) in 2015. SDG13 emphasises the need to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate related...

Estimating the Impacts of Urban Growth on Future Flood Risk: A Comparative Study

Willem Veerbeek
January 09, 2018

The unprecedented growth of cities has a significant impact on future flood risk that might exceed the impacts of climate change in many metropolitan areas across the world. Although the effects of urbanisation on flood risk are well understood, assessments that include spatially explicit future...
