Hydrology : water quantity and quality control by Martin P Wanielista( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of its popular predecessor has been significantly revised to increase flexibility in the presentation and maintain greater continuity of the material. Combining both theory and practical applications of empirical equations the text contains expanded treatment of water quantity and quality control, a detailed presentation of basic principles and use in analysis and design, hydrograph topics including synthetic and convolution techniques, practical and realistic case studies relating to design problems, and additional end-of-chapter problems

Multidimensional Time book [US] by Robert Kersten( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time is a concept we all use every day to measure the passage of our days and lives without giving it much thought.Physics inherently does not limit time to going forward only, or to only one dimension, but it is treated that way since we do not understand time any other way. Could time have multidimensions, just like space has? What would it mean to move in multidimensional time? Can the expanded dimensions of time explain human consciousness?This book on multidimensional time will explain new approaches to looking at time. It will start out with unusual behaviors of matter with regards to time, discuss the current understanding of spacetime as three dimensions of space and one dimension of time and then introduce an expanded concept of time, that being, multidimensional time. Multidimensional time can radically change how you see matter, as well as yourselves, in a spacetime beyond four dimensions. From these additional dimensions we understand spacetime in a whole new way, as well as come to the understanding that we are interconnected not only to each other, but also to this universe in interesting ways

Engineering Manpower Supply and Demand Issues by Robert Kersten( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides a review of pertinent statistical information related to supply and demand, a consideration of "forcing" factors in supply/demand analyses, a discussion of training versus task requirements as related to job performance, a presentation of a tentative "engineering occupations" model, and an emphasis on definition of the various elements of the engineering manpower spectrum.

Small scale hydropower - appropriate technology for rural development in lesser developed countries by Stephen R Harper( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Less Developed Countries (LDC's) now have a total of about 2.8 billion people, or approximately 70 percent of the total world population. World populations and current energy consumption are such that is all the world's countries came up to the U.S. per capita energy use, the world's consumption would multiply by a factor of seven. For the LDC's, energy development will be an increasingly important issue. Hydropower technology is on the shelf, and available now, of proven feasibility both technically and economically, and presents a sound and rational energy solution from the environmental viewpoint. It is a technology which could be useful to the Less Developed Countries for the long term, irrespective of the shift from abundant low-cost fossil fuel options or the development of more exotic alternate energy technologies. With its continuing replenishment and nondepleting characteristics, it remains one of the most attractive sources of energy. The nature of water resources includes a distributive element which makes it ideal for rural development. The apparent shift in development policy, from the traditional "top-down" industrialization approach to the "bottoms-up" reach the village approach, requires decentralized applications of energy resources attainable through development of hydropower in many regions of the world. Distributed Small Scale Hydropower (SSH) systems offer excellent opportunities to augment energy supplies to many rural areas. Also, in a modest way the development of a community infrastructure, training of operating and maintenance personnel, and initiation of small scale agribusiness enterprises may be undertaken. Each of these activities could result in relatively major contributions to the improvement of quality of life. SSH sites are found in abundancy in most mountainous regions and offer sensible possibilities for decentralized applications in LDC's

Micro-scale hydropower for the eighties by Beatriz E Caicedo-Maddison( )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The objectives of this project are to show the feasibility of micro-hydropower and to provide adequate engineering data for those people who wish to design their own micro system. Nine case studies are reviewed and analyzed in an attempt to determine general design parameters. Comparative data for these studies comes from preliminary permit applications submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Information on such topics as flow measurements, heads, generators and turbine technology are presented. Duration curves are explained with examples using data from a river found in Colombia, South America. Finally, a preliminary design of a micro-hydro facility is calculated for implementation on a stream that is part of the Tennessee River Basin
