Over the last two decades environmental hydraulics as an academic discipline has expanded considerably, caused by growing concerns over water environmental issues associated with pollution and water balance problems on regional and global scale. These issues require a thorough understanding of processes related to environmental flows and transport phenomena, and the development of new approaches for practical solutions. Environmental Hydraulics includes about 200 contributions from 35 countries presented at the 6th International Symposium on Environmental Hydraulics (Athens, Greece, 23-25 June 2010). They cover the state-of-the-art on a broad range of topics, including: fundamentals aspects of environmental fluid mechanics environmental hydraulics problems of inland, coastal and ground waters interfacial processes; computational, experimental and field measurement techniques ecological aspects, and effects of global climate change. Environmental Hydraulics will be of interest to researchers, civil/environmental engineers, and professional engineers dealing with the design and operation of environmental hydraulic works such as wastewater treatment and disposal, river and marine constructions, and to academics and graduate students in related fields.

Standard and advanced methods for every type of foundation engineering Incorporating the expertise of a distinguished team of soil and foundation engineers, this expanded and updated Handbook clarifies and simplifies every part of the job, from site assessment through design and construction, to remediation of failed foundations. Here are proven, expert design alternatives for even substandard soil and challenging site conditions, with example problems for any type of structure. You get not only important how-to's, but equally vital how-not-to's that prevent costly damage to structures and professional reputations. Handy illustrations, charts, tables, and case-study examples ease your work. You also get full coverage of failure analysis and repairs New in this edition are treatments of forensics investigations; grouting substandard soils; special coverage of lightly loaded foundations, pier and beam, as well as conventional and post-tension slabs; advice on litigation and role of expert witnesseses; and much more.

Wissenschaftliche Publikationen werden heute fast nur noch in Englisch verfasst. Sowohl für das Verständnis englischsprachiger Fachliteratur als auch für das Verfassen eigener Publikationen braucht man dringend ein verlässliches Fachwörterbuch. Auch Wissenschaftlern, deren Muttersprache nicht Deutsch ist, wird es für das Verständnis deutschsprachiger Literatur eine große Hilfe sein. Volker Schweizer hat sich als erfahrener Übersetzer großer geologischer Lehrbücher eine hohe Kompetenz erworben und dieses Wörtebuch zusammengestellt.
