Description

Hydro-Geo-Engineering: Calculations and Simulations explains how to develop effective quantitative solutions for applications in hydrogeology and Geological Engineering. The book's author provides a systematic, hands-on approach to illustrate how hydrogeological/geological Engineering concepts are translated into quantitative engineering solutions. Topics explored include problems relating to contaminant migration, landfill, groundwater-surface water interactions, landuse, hydrology, waste treatment plant design, resources, infrastructure, energy and mining with illustrations from real-life projects using a variety of simulation methods that are easy-to-understand and have step-by-step quantitative analysis that is supported by illustrations and tables.

Key Features

  • Explains how to expertly prepare quantitative hydrogeological/geological engineering solutions and how to convey the associated results into real-life assignments
  • Includes practical, step-by-step techniques for data analysis and visualization (EVS Pro and Leapfrog)
  • Demonstrates the appropriate use of 3-D graphics and animations for environmental and engineering applications together with other hydro-geo-engineering decision supporting tools
  • Presents application of inverse modelling code with an advanced technology
  • Touches scale effects, none-uniqueness issues and uncertainties related to subsurface heterogeneity, model structure, parameter, climate variability and projected cost-benefit
  • Highlights topics related to ecology, zero waste policy, recycling, renewable energy, sustainability and future scientific/engineering solutions
