Evidence of stabilised peat as a net carbon sink
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2019-01-09)
Mass stabilization, a ground improvement solution used for construction in peatlands, involves mixing suitable dry binders into the peat, increasing strength and stiffness and reducing permeability. A previous pilot study ...
Hydrodynamic modelling approaches to assess mechanisms affecting the structural performance and maintenance of vortex drops shaft structures
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-07-29)
Vortex drop shafts, a key hydraulic structure within modern day deep sewer conveyance systems, must be designed structurally to sustain performance and longevity of operating life under very energetic loading conditions. ...
Vortex drop shaft structures: state-of-the-art and future trends
(International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), 2019-09-01)
Vortex drop shaft structures have played a critical role in hydraulic engineering; from one of their first applications in hydroelectric energy dissipation in the 1940s, to numerous contemporary installations throughout modern ...
Novel use of peatlands as future locations for the sustainable intensification of freshwater aquaculture production - A case study from the Republic of Ireland
There has been an increasing interest in enhancing freshwater aquaculture processes without hindering the progress of the Water Framework Directive. This constitutes the first study to describe a new concept in integrated ...
