Bearing capacity in sand under eccentric and inclined loading using a bounding surface plasticity model
The bearing capacity of strip footings on sand under inclined or eccentric loading is investigated using finite element analysis. The sand behavior is simulated using a bounding surface plasticity constitutive model based ...
Spatial differences and temporal changes in illicit drug use in Europe quantified by wastewater analysis
Aims To perform wastewater analyses to assess spatial differences and temporal changes of illicit drug use in a large European population. Design Analyses of raw wastewater over a 1-week period in 2012 and 2013. Setting ...
Tackling antibiotic resistance: the environmental framework
Antibiotic resistance is a threat to human and animal health worldwide, and key measures are required to reduce the risks posed by antibiotic resistance genes that occur in the environment. These measures include the ...
Assessment of long-term wastewater irrigation impacts on the soil geochemical properties and the bioaccumulation of heavy metals to the agricultural products
An extensive field survey was employed for assessing the impacts of long-term wastewater irrigation of forage crops and orange orchards in three suburban agricultural areas in Cyprus (areas I, II, and III), as compared to ...
Enhancing the rate of ex situ mineral carbonation in dunites via ball milling
The investigation of potential options for CO 2 sequestration is of vital importance for alleviating the ongoing climate problem. This paper presents an efficient method for enhancing the ex situ carbonation of dunites. ...
