Without proper hydraulic fill and suitable specialised equipment, many major infrastructure projects such as ports, airports, roads, industrial or housing projects could not be realised. Yet comprehensive information about hydraulic fill is difficult to find. This thoroughly researched book, written by noted experts, takes the reader step-by-step through the complex development of a hydraulic fill project. Up-to-date and in-depth, this manual will enable the client and his consultant to understand and properly plan a reclamation project. It provides adequate guidelines for design and quality control and allows the contractor to work within known and generally accepted guidelines and reasonable specifications. The ultimate goal is to create better-designed, more adequately specified and less costly hydraulic fill projects. The Hydraulic Fill Manual covers a range of topics such as: • The development cycle of a hydraulic fill project • How technical data are acquired and applied • The construction methods applicable to a wide variety of equipment and soil conditions, the capabilities of dredging equipment and the techniques of soil improvement • How to assess the potentials of a borrow pit • Essential environment assessment issues • The design of the hydraulic fill mass, including the boundary conditions for the design, effects of the design on its surroundings, the strength and stiffness of the fill mass, density, sensitivity to liquefaction, design considerations for special fill material such as silts, clays and carbonate sands, problematic subsoils and natural hazards • Quality control and monitoring of the fill mass and its behaviour after construction. This manual is of particular interest to clients, consultants, planning and consenting authorities, environmental advisors, contractors and civil, geotechnical, hydraulic and coastal engineers involved in dredging and land reclamation projects.

This third edition of the SME Mining Engineering Handbook reaffirms its international reputation as "the handbook of choice" for today's practicing mining engineer. It distills the body of knowledge that characterizes mining engineering as a disciplinary field and has subsequently helped to inspire and inform generations of mining professionals.Virtually all of the information is original content, representing the latest information from more than 250 internationally recognized mining industry experts. Within the handbook's 115 thought-provoking chapters are current topics relevant to today's mining professional: Analyzing how the mining and minerals industry will develop over the medium and long term--why such changes are inevitable, what this will mean in terms of challenges, and how they could be managed Explaining the mechanics associated with the multifaceted world of mine and mineral economics, from the decisions associated with how best to finance a single piece of high-value equipment to the long-term cash-flow issues associated with mine planning at a mature operation Describing the recent and ongoing technical initiatives and engineering developments in relation to robotics, automation, acid rock drainage, block caving optimization, or process dewatering methods Examining in detail the methods and equipment available to achieve efficient, predictable, and safe rock breaking, whether employing a tunnel boring machine for development work, mineral extraction using a mobile miner, or cast blasting at a surface coal operation Identifying the salient points that dictate which is the safest, most efficient, and most versatile extraction method to employ, as well as describing in detail how each alternative is engineered Discussing the impacts that social and environmental issues have on mining from the pre-exploration phase to end-of-mine issues and beyond, and how to manage these two increasingly important factors to the benefit of both the mining companies and other stakeholders

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Linguistik, Note: 2,0, Universität Koblenz-Landau (Germanistik), Veranstaltung: Sprache Variation Stil, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Geox: die neue waterproof Generation“ Dieses aktuelle Zitat aus dem Internetportal www.markensolgans.de zeigt, dass das Thema Anglizismus in der Werbesprache schon seit längerer Zeit mehr und mehr an Bedeutung hinzugewinnt. In der nachstehenden fachwissenschaftlichen Ausarbeitung wird genau dieser aktuelle Gegenstand thematisiert und die verschiedenen Blickwinkel des Themas unterschiedlich intensiv beleuchtet. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es herauszuarbeiten, inwiefern Anglizismen in der Werbung eine tragende Rolle zuzuordnen sind und deren Gebrauch näher zu erläutern. Beginnend wird ein Einblick in die Definition der Termini Werbung, Anglizismen, Fremdwörter und Lehnwörter gegeben, die den Einstieg in die Ausarbeitung erleichtern sollen. Der zweite Teil thematisiert die Bildung von Anglizismen, deren Gebrauch und Verwendung. Hier wird deutlich, wie eng die Entlehnungen miteinander verknüpft sind und auf Grund dessen eine genaue Abgrenzung der Termini Lehnwort und Fremdwort schwierig ist. Der Abschnitt zu dem Thema Werbung soll folglich einen Überblick darüber verschaffen, wie sich dieses in der deutschen Literatur definiert, um in dem nachstehenden Teil Rückschlüsse zur Verwendung von Anglizismen in der Werbesprache ziehen zu können. In dem nachstehenden Teil dieser fachwissenschaftlichen Ausarbeitung geht es dann schließlich um den Gebrauch von Anglizismen in der Werbesprache. Sind Anglizismen unumgänglich? Werden diese nur als Vermarktungsstrategien verwendet? Welchen Einfluss haben Anglizismen auf die deutsche Sprache? Dies gilt es unter anderen in diesem letzten Abschnitt herauszuarbeiten. Zur Verdeutlichung dieser Thematik werden im anschließenden Kapitel explizit ausgewählte Werbesprüche untersucht und analysiert. Im Fazit werden dann die zuvor thematisierten Bereiche zusammengefasst und die Ergebnisse reflektiert. Weiterhin wird ein Überblick über die Vor- und Nachtteile von Anglizismen in der deutschen Sprache aufgeführt. Der Forschungsstand der verwendeten Literatur ist sehr umfangreich und weitestgehend aktuell.

In Form von Dauerleihgaben, Schenkungen, Vermächtnissen von Todes wegen oder individualisierten Kooperationsverträgen werden Kooperationen zwischen Privatsammlern und öffentlichen Museen geschlossen. Diese Kooperationsformen sind mit verschiedenen Interessen der Partner verbunden, die anhand von Beispielen aus der Museumspraxis verdeutlicht werden. Für eine Zusammenarbeit stellt eine Checkliste die zu beachtenden Kernfragen einer Kooperation zusammen. Die Empfehlungsvorschläge bieten ein erstes Gerüst für Kooperationen, um auf faire Weise das gemeinsame Ziel einer Einbindung einer zeitgenössischen Sammlung in einen öffentlichen Museumsbetrieb zu erreichen.

Wetlands could be described as land and water at Tropical wetlands: one and the same time, and as such are very specific on the brink ecosystems. Their often rich variety of resources makes them highly valuable to the peoples who live With a few exceptions (like the Everglades in the or regularly stay in them. However, access to them United States), the last remaining large wetlands are to be found in developing countries. Perhaps this can is difficult and those unaware of their services be explained by insufficient financial resources, frequently associate wetlands with such nuisances and calamities as mosquitos, disease, floods, impen lower popUlation density or a different concept of etrable wastelands, etc. As a result these areas are development and well-being. Whatever the reasons, often perceived as obstacles to human development many tropical wetlands still exist and support the and well-being. subsistence of many communities. But for how much History reflects these two views. Wetlands may longer? have been the cradle of great civilizations (like the During the last few decades tropical wetlands Maya, Inca, Aztec, Nilotic and Mesopotamian have also been destroyed or considerably altered. Dams and embankments now prevent water from civilizations), but elsewhere their destruction allowed other societies to develop. For example the Nether spreading into the floodplains of several rivers, like lands literally 'emerged from the waters' thanks to the Senegal, Volta and Nile.
