Water Systems Analysis, Design, and Planning

This book presents three distinct pillars for analysis, design, and planning: urban water cycle and variability as the state of water being; landscape architecture as the medium for built-by-design; and total systems as the planning approach. The increasing demand for water and urban and industrial expansions have caused myriad environmental, social, economic, and political predicaments. More frequent and severe floods and droughts have changed the resiliency and ability of water infrastructure systems to operate and provide services to the public. These concerns and issues have also changed the way we plan and manage our water resources.

Focusing on urban challenges and contexts, the book provides foundational information regarding water science and engineering while also examining topics relating to urban stormwater, water supply, and wastewater infrastructures. It also addresses critical emerging issues such as simulation and economic modeling, flood resiliency, environmental visualization, satellite data applications, and digital data model (DEM) advancements.

  • Explores various theoretical, practical, and real-world applications of system analysis, design, and planning of urban water infrastructures.
  • Discusses hydrology, hydraulics, and basic laws of water flow movement through natural and constructed environments.
  • Describes a wide range of novel topics ranging from water assets, water economics, systems analysis, risk, reliability, and disaster management.
  • Examines the details of hydrologic and hydrodynamic modeling and simulation of conceptual and data-driven models.
  • Delineates flood resiliency, environmental visualization, pattern recognition, and machine learning attributes.Explores a compilation of tools and emerging techniques that elevate the reader to a higher plateau in water and environmental systems management.
Water Systems Analysis, Design, and Planning: Urban Infrastructure serves as a useful resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in the areas of water resources and systems analysis, as well as practicing engineers and landscape professionals.

Cliff Nicholls, Arthur Hannah - Asphalt Mixture Selection

CRC, 2020
pdf, 165 pages, english
ISBN: 978-1-138-61682-0

Asphalt Mixture Selection

This practical guide starts with a survey of the types of site and the asphalt properties which are required. Various external influences which may affect the relative importance of some properties are addressed, and the interplay of sites and external is considered. Asphalt mixture types and their properties are reviewed, largely as defined in the EN 13108 series but subdivided into further categories, and into maximum nominal coarse aggregate sizes using EN 13043 basic set plus set 2 sizes.

Guidance is given, including using flowcharts, of the different mixtures that are suitable for each situation. In some cases a range of choices or mixtures with different degrees of suitability is offered. The guidance covers surface course, binder course and base, but with more focus on the surface course where the external influence is most significant. The site and external influence combinations on which a mixture can be used successfully are also given.

The book is primarily intended for those who select asphalt on an occasional basis, such as architects or housing developers, but could be of use to other engineers with limited experience. It is also useful as an educational textbook for those studying asphalt technology.

Highway Engineering Bookware
Athanassios Nikolaides - Highway Engineering
Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality

CRC, 2015
pdf, 868 pages, english
ISBN-13: 978-1-4665-7997-2

Highway Engineering

Highway engineering is the term that replaced the traditional term road engineering used in the past, after the introduction of modern highways. Highway engineering is a vast subject that involves planning, design, construction, maintenance and management of roads, bridges and tunnels for the safe and effective transportation of people and goods.

This book concentrates on design, construction, maintenance and management of pavements for roads/highways. It also includes pavement materials since they are an integral part of pavements. It has been written for graduates, postgraduates as well as practicing engineers and laboratory staff and incorporates the author’s 30 years of involvement in teaching, researching and practicing the subject of highway engineering.

Advancements in pavement materials, design, construction, maintenance and pavement management and the globalisation of the market make it imperative for the highway engineer to be aware of the techniques and standards applied globally.

One of the objectives of the book is to provide integrated information on the abovementioned disciplines of highway engineering.

Another objective is to include in one book both European and American standards and practices (CEN EN, ASTM, AASHTO and Asphalt Institute). This would result in a more useful reference textbook to pavement engineering courses taught in European and American educational establishments.

Another objective of this book is to provide a reference textbook to practicing pavement engineers and materials testing laboratory staff, working in countries employing European or American standards and techniques.

Apart from information regarding European and American practices, the reader can also find some specific information on practices employed in countries such as the United Kingdom, France and Greece, as well as Australia.

In addition, this book also aims to provide integrated information related to pavement materials (soil, aggregates, bitumen, asphalts and reclaimed material), material testing for acceptability and quality assurance, asphalt mix design, flexible and rigid pavement design, construction, maintenance and strengthening procedures, quality control of production and acceptance of asphalts, pavement evaluation, asphalt plants and pavement recycling. It also covers the basic principles of pavement management.

The book in its 18 chapters contains many tables, graphs, charts and photographs to assist the reader in learning and understanding the subject of pavement engineering and materials. It also contains a great number of references, a valuable tool to help the reader seek more information and enhance his or her knowledge.

The short description of all pavement material testing procedures, required by Europeanand American standards, as well as pavement design and maintenance procedures covered, does not, by any means, substitute or replace the standards and procedures developed by the various organisations and agencies. The reader is advised to always consult the standards or manuals developed when engaged in testing, design, construction or maintenance works.

It is hoped that this textbook will not only contribute to the understanding of the wide and challenging subject of pavement engineering but also enable a more effective and economical design, construction and maintenance of pavements by employing updated standards, practices and techniques.
