Microplastics in sewage sludge: effects of treatment
(American Chemical Society, 2016-12-12)
Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTPs) are receptors for the cumulative loading of microplastics (MPs) derived from industry, landfill, domestic waste water and storm water. The partitioning of MPs through the settlement ...
Ground heave induced by installing stone columns in clay soils
(ICE Publishing, 2013-12)
Measurements of ground heave induced by installing stone columns in soft clay are presented in this paper. These measurements are likely to provide guidance to practitioners concerned about the possible impact of column ...
Performance of novel media in stratified filters to remove organic carbon from lake water
(IWA Publishing, 2016-08-15)
Disinfection by-products (DBPs) are an ever-increasing occurrence in water networks, particularly those which abstract water from peatland areas. Although much research has been carried out to discover novel methods to ...
An analytical approach for the prediction of single pile and pile group behaviour in clay
In this paper, the 't-z method' is employed to describe the nonlinear behaviour of a single pile and is used to obtain simplified predictions of pile group behaviour by considering the interaction between two-piles in ...
Discussion: Interaction factor for large pile groups
(ICE Publishing, 2016-09-27)
The authors present an interesting paper on the use of the interaction factor method (IFM) for settlement analysis of large pile groups.
Appraising stone column settlement prediction methods using finite element analyses
(Springer Verlag, 2014-09-26)
Numerous approaches exist for the prediction of the settlement improvement offered by the vibro-replacement technique in weak or marginal soil deposits. The majority of the settlement prediction methods are based on the ...
An embodied carbon and embodied energy appraisal of a section of Irish motorway constructed in peatlands
In addition to the customary drivers of cost and timely project delivery, embodied energy (EE) and embodied carbon (EC) have come to prominence in recent years as major design considerations in all aspects of large-scale ...
Nitrogen-limitation-induced carbon and phosphorus fluxes in anaerobic/aerobic sequencing batch reactors
Enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) has been applied widely in wastewater treatment plants. However, deterioration or failure of EBPR often happens because: (i) of the dominance of glycogen-accumulating organisms ...
A finite element-based approach for predictions of rigid pile group stiffness efficiency in clays
(Springer Verlag, 2013-08-17)
This paper presents a finite element parametric study of several variables that affect the stiffness efficiency of rigidly capped pile groups with a view to developing a solution for preliminary design purposes. Previous ...
Shaft resistance of driven cast-in-situ piles in sand
(NRC Research Press, 2015-06-25)
Driven cast-in-situ (DCIS) piles are classified as a large displacement pile, despite sharing certain aspects of their construction with replacement pile types. However, there are relatively few case histories of load tests ...
