Biotechnologies and Biomimetics for Civil Engineering by Fernando Pacheco Torgal, J. A. Labrincha, M. V. Diamanti,

By Fernando Pacheco Torgal, J. A. Labrincha, M. V. Diamanti, C.-P. Yu, H. K. Lee (eds.)

Putting ahead an cutting edge method of fixing present technological difficulties confronted by means of human society, this e-book incorporates a holistic manner of perceiving the possibility of ordinary platforms. Nature has constructed a number of fabrics and methods which either hold an optimum functionality and also are absolutely biodegradable, houses which might be utilized in civil engineering.

Delivering the newest examine findings to construction execs and different practitioners, in addition to containing info precious to the general public, ‘Biotechnologies and Biomimetics for Civil Engineering’ serves as a massive device to take on the demanding situations of a extra sustainable building and the way forward for buildings.

22nd Annual Conference on Composites, Advanced Ceramics, Materials, and Structures: B: Ceramic Engineering and Science Proceedings, Volume 19, Issue 4

This quantity is a part of the Ceramic Engineering and technology continuing  (CESP) series.  This sequence encompasses a number of papers facing matters in either conventional ceramics (i. e. , glass, whitewares, refractories, and porcelain the teeth) and complex ceramics. subject matters lined within the region of complex ceramic contain bioceramics, nanomaterials, composites, reliable oxide gasoline cells, mechanical homes and structural layout, complicated ceramic coatings, ceramic armor, porous ceramics, and extra.

Web Information Systems Engineering – WISE 2013: 14th International Conference, Nanjing, China, October 13-15, 2013, Proceedings, Part II

This publication constitutes the court cases of the 14th overseas convention on internet details structures Engineering, clever 2013, held in Nanjing, China, in October 2013. The forty eight complete papers, 29 brief papers, and 10 demo and five problem papers, offered within the two-volume lawsuits LNCS 8180 and 8181, have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from 198 submissions.

Advances in Cryogenic Engineering: Proceedings of the 1969 Cryogenic Engineering Conference University of California at Los Angeles, June 16–18, 1969

1969 marked the go back of the Cryogenic Engineering convention, now affiliated with the nationwide Academy ofSciences throughout the department ofEngineering, nationwide learn Council, to the collage of California at l. a.. As in 1962, the Cryogenic Engineering convention gratefully recognizes the help of UCLA, its Engineering and actual Seien ces Extension department, and particularly J.

It is well known that some halotolerant species of genus Staphylococcus exhibited high urease activity (Jin et al. 2004; Christians et al. 1991). Halotolerant urease-producing strain of Gram-positive bacteria of Staphylococcus succinus was isolated from water of the Dead Sea with salinity 34 % (Stabnikov et al.

Therefore, the isolated strain was not used for biocementation studies and applications. Biocementation can be performed as bulk biocementation through the supply of bacterial suspension altogether or separately with solutions of calcium and urea by injection, and using surface percolation (Cheng and Cord-Ruwisch 2012; Stabnikov et al. 2011) or surface spraying (Stabnikov et al. 2011, 2013a; Chu et al. 2012a). Modifying types of the treatment it is possible to form the crust on surface of soil (Fig.

2013; Rebata-Landa and Santamarina 2012); • bioencapsulation of clay/soil/particles is a process to increase strength of soft clayey soil through the formation of strong shell around a piece of soft material (Ivanov et al. 2014); • bioremediation of soil is a process to remove pollutants from soil or immobilize pollutant in soil before construction (Warren et al. 2001; Fujita et al. 2004; Mitchell and Ferris 2005). Classification of construction biotechnologies by the results of their applications is illustrated in Fig.
