New Waterscapes - Planning, Building and Designing with Water

Fter many years of being banished from residential parts, water is now turning into an more and more major characteristic in city layout. if it is the mixing of ordinary water classes into the equipped atmosphere rainwater administration, the incorporation of water components in city parts for climatic reasons or the production of oases of tranquility or drama comparable to swimming pools or fountains – these types of facets are usually not in basic terms encountering renewed curiosity between architects and concrete planners, yet also they are greeted with appreciation through most of the people.

Digital Infrastructures: Enabling Civil and Environmental Systems through Information Technology

An invisible community of electronic know-how structures underlies the hugely obvious networks of roads, waterways, satellites, and power-lines. more and more, those platforms have gotten the ''infrastructure's infrastructure,'' offering a vital array of information on community call for, functionality, reliability, and safety.

Hydraulic Canals: Design, Construction, Regulation and Maintenance

Aimed toward engineers with a superb grounding in hydraulic engineering, this sensible reference fills a necessity for a consultant to the layout, building, administration and modernisation of canals. It offers an in-depth examine of the issues as a result of seepage, an research of some of the attainable linings, the limitations posed by means of canals built with no linings, and suitable equipment of calculation together with the calculation of some of the constructions within the canal, such a lot particularly the gates.

Sample text

With dry kilns with preheater and pre-calciner, an additional combustion chamber is installed between the preheater and the kiln. This pre-calciner chamber consumes about 60% of the fuel used in the kiln, and 80–90% of the calcinations take place here. This reduces energy consumption by 8–11%. Low-temperature waste heat from the combustion chamber can also be recovered for other purposes. Finally, a number of shaft kilns can be found in China and India. In India their share is 10%, while in China it is over 80% of the capacities.

Additionally, the potential use of slag in clinker-free alkali activated cements was explored (Pacheco-Torgal et al. 2008). A new dilemma into this equation is the allocation of CO2 to BFS. This will be a complex issue with several possible options, all giving very different CO2 intensity values for the slag (Birat 2011; Chen et al. 2010). The solution will probably result from negotiation between the two industrial sectors. g. heat of hydration or durability) or in places that have localized surpluses due to logistic restrictions.
