Geoenvironmental Engineering by A.M.O. Mohamed


Original Title: Geoenvironmental Engineering

The new social and economic era calls for integration of ecology and economy in a system of cause and effect. The central element in this shift is sustainable development. Fundamental to the achievement of sustainable development is the requirement for environmentally responsible waste management and restoration of the environment. Solutions to the complex problems confronted by waste management and environmental restoration industry are currently handled by the geoenvironmental engineering profession that needs a good background in soil biology, chemistry, mechanics, mineralogy, and physics. In recognition of this need, this book summarizes relevant aspects of various soil physics, mineralogy, and chemistry as well as the chemistry of pollutants. This treatment will provide sufficient background to students and practicing engineers to enable them to think about how to approach waste management and environmental restoration problems.

Geoenvironmental Engineering by Raymond N. Yong


Original Title: Geoenvironmental Engineering

Throughout the world there is an ever increasing awareness of the importance of environmental issues. Pollution of the natural environment is welfare. Nevertheless, economic stability and prosperity necessitate the continuation of such activities and society faces the challenge of minimising the resulting adverse effects. This substantial volume is the proceedings of the British Geotechnical Society's major conference for geo-environmental engineering of contaminated land. It contains the most up to date information available by leading experts in the field from around the world, and encompasses the wider issues of pollution to the ground, from the impact of past and current industrial activities, to the need for disposal of waste generated by society in landfill sites. It discusses the movement of pollutants impact on the groundwater resources, and the ability of natural ground to 'retain' pollutants. The papers in this book have been grouped together into seven major areas: Site investigation and characterisation; Transport modelling; saturated and unsaturated; Geotechnics of land disposal of waste; Geotechnical recycle or reuse of waste materials; Remediation of contaminated ground; and geoenvironmental risk and regulations.

Fundamentals Of Geoenvironmental Engineering by Abdel-Mohsen Onsy Mohamed


Original Title: Fundamentals Of Geoenvironmental Engineering

Fundamentals of Geoenvironmental Engineering: Understanding Soil, Water, and Pollutant Interaction and Transport examines soil-water-pollutant interaction, including physico-chemical processes that occur when soil is exposed to various contaminants. Soil characteristics relevant to remedial techniques are explored, providing foundations for the correct process selection. Built upon the authors' extensive experience in research and practice, the book updates and expands the content to include current processes and pollutants. The book discusses propagation of soil pollution and soil characteristics relevant to remedial techniques. Practicing geotechnical and environmental engineers can apply the theory and case studies in the book directly to current projects. The book first discusses the stages of economic development and their connections to the sustainability of the environment. Subsequent chapters cover waste and its management, soil systems, soil-water and soil-pollutant interactions, subsurface transport of pollutants, role of groundwater, nano-, micro- and biologic pollutants, soil characteristics that impact pollution diffusion, and potential remediation processes like mechanical, electric, magnetic, hydraulic and dielectric permittivity of soils. Presents a clear understanding of the propagation of pollutants in soils Identifies the physico-chemical processes in soils Covers emerging pollutants (nano-, micro- and biologic contaminants) Features in-depth coverage of hydraulic, electrical, magnetic and dielectric permittivity characteristics of soils and their impact on remedial technologies

Sustainable Practices In Geoenvironmental Engineering Second Edition by Raymond N. Yong


Original Title: Sustainable Practices In Geoenvironmental Engineering Second Edition

In the seven years since the publication of the first edition of Sustainable Practices in Geoenvironmental Engineering, the combination of population growth and increased exploitation of renewable and non-renewable natural resources has added increased stresses on the quality and health of the geoenvironment. This is especially true when viewed in the context of the growing demand for food and shelter, energy and mineral resources, and their resultant effects on the natural capital of the geoenvironment. Completely revised and updated, this second edition of a bestseller introduces and discusses the concept of "stressors" and their impacts on the geoenvironment. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Clear definition of the geoenvironment New tools and remediation technologies, new management methods for geohazards, and enhanced coverage of social and economic sustainability Innovative approaches and techniques for reaching geoenvironmental sustainability More detail on treatment technologies, both in situ and ex situ Discussion on the mitigation of geodisasters Additional sections to discuss sustainability assessment protocols Updated information on models for prediction of contaminant behavior The authors explore the technologies that take into account targets, exposure routes (if applicable), future land use, acceptable risks, legislation, and resultant emissions/discharges in establishing the criteria and tools for evaluating technologies and protocols for environmental management of the impacted land. They then discuss how to choose the correct ones to use in different situations to protect the quality and health of natural resource and capital of the geoenvironment and ensure that these geoenvironmental natural resources and capital remain available for future generations and to develop innovative and sustainable techniques to make land more stable and safer.

Principles And Applications Of Time Domain Electrometry In Geoenvironmental Engineering by A.M.O. Mohamed


Original Title: Principles And Applications Of Time Domain Electrometry In Geoenvironmental Engineering

Time domain electrometry (TDE) is a general term which includes time domain reflectrometry and time domain transmissiometry. It is a commercially-viable technique for leak detection, contaminant monitoring, and moisture content determination in contaminant transport modelling. Under demographic pressure, contaminated sites are increasingly being re-developed for domestic and industrial use; and this presents an urgent need for reliable, non-intrusive and integrated methods of subsurface characterization, detection and monitoring of organic and inorganic pollutants, soil moisture content and salinity. This book provides an overview of the potential application of TDE in geoenvironmental engineering and describes the geophysical methods used.
