  • Engineers and planners: Sustainable water management alliances 

    Potter, Karen; Ward, Sarah; Shaw, Davis; Macdonald, Neil; White, Iain; Fischer, Thomas; Butler, David; Kellagher, Richard (ICE Publishing, 2011)
    In the future, increasing pressure will inevitably be placed on the spatial planning system to improve its consideration of water management issues. Emerging challenges include designing for climatic extremes, reducing ...
  • Establishing the database of inundation potential in Taiwan 

    Chen, Albert S.; Hsu, Ming-Hsi; Teng, Wei-Hsien; Huang, Chen-Jia; Yeh, Sen-Hae; Lien, Wan-Yu (Springer Verlag, 2006)
    The structural measure was the major solution for flood defense in Taiwan. However, the measure is always limited to the design standard and cannot prevent the damages when floods exceed certain scale. Therefore, non-structural ...

    Maier, H.R.; Kapelan, Zoran; Kasprzyk, J.; Kollat, J.; Matott, L.S.; Cunha, M.C.; Dandy, G.C.; Gibbs, M.S.; Keedwell, Edward; Marchi, A.; Ostfeld, A.; Savic, Dragan; Solomatine, D.P.; Vrugt, J.A.; Zecchin, A.C.; Minsker, B.S.; Barbour, E.J.; Kuczera, G.; Pasha, F.; Castelletti, A.; Giuliani, M.; Reed, P.M. (Elsevier, 2014)
    The development and application of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) and other metaheuristics for the optimisation of water resources systems has been an active research field for over two decades. Research to date has emphasized ...
  • Exact harmonic coefficients for a magnetic ring head 

    Wilton, David T.; Middleton, Barry K.; Aziz, Mustafa M. (IEEE, 1999)
    The magnetic field of a ring head has been analyzed by Westmijze [1953], using a conformal mapping, and by Fan [1961], using Fourier techniques. Here these methods are reexamined and combined to give, for the first time, ...
