The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book): A /5(). The expansion of scope from Stewart’s earlier book, "America," to "Earth" in this book, may suggest that some future book of his will be titled "Galaxy" and then, perhaps, "Universe".

As expected, there is a great deal of smart writing in the book, but there’s also filler material to expand the main ideas (barely) into a book-length /5.

This book aims primarily at providing the engineer with an organized and analytical approach to the solutions of seepage problems and an understanding of the design and analysis of earth structures that impound water.

It can be used for advanced courses in civil, hydraulic, agricultural, and foundation engineering, and will prove useful to. At 18 months, my daughter picked this book at the library, we read it and had to buy it.

The art is beautiful, the layout and style of the illustrations cleverly help to explain the concepts in the book (gravity, solar system, Earth's rotation and orbit of the sun, calendar, seasons)/5(17). A geomembrane is very low permeability synthetic membrane liner or barrier used with any geotechnical engineering related material so as to control fluid (or gas) migration in a human-made project, structure, or system.

Geomembranes are made from relatively thin continuous polymeric sheets, but they can also be made from the impregnation of geotextiles with asphalt, elastomer or polymer sprays. Kays () has written a book describing the technology of linings for seepage control in reservoirs, lakes, ponds, canals, and related hydraulic facilities.

Emphasis is given to earthen reservoirs, but other forms of containment such as concrete and steel tanks are also discussed. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook. If you need to print pages from this book, we recommend downloading it as a PDF.

These linings are viable alternatives in areas not suitable for concrete or compacted earth linings. To increase the service life and reduce installation problems of PVC linings, a mil rather than mil thick.

The book offers a modern, comprehensive, and holistic view of natural gas seepage, defined as the visible or invisible flow of gaseous hydrocarbons from subsurface sources to Earth’s surface. Book Description Khanna Publishers Pvt. Ltd, Softcover. Condition: New. 5th or later edition.

SEEPAGE CONTROL AND DEWATERING Seepage-control measures are undertaken to reduce water losses to seepage from irrigation canals, dams or through foundation or abutments.

The following means are used for controlling canal water seepage: seepage-control lining of canals made from cast-in-situ concrete, reinforced-concrete slabs, asphalt, rock. Many seepage problems and failure of earth-fill dams have occurred because of inadequate seepage control measures.

This study was reviewed the conditions, causes, and effects of seepage and control measures in the earth dam. Types of earth dams such as homogeneous embankment, zoned embankment and diaphragm embankment well were highlighted.

We have now drilled some 30 million miles of tunnel and borehole in our hunt for resources, truly riddling our planet into a hollow Earth.” ― Robert Macfarlane, Underland. The research farm of the department of Agricultural Engineering, University of Uyo was the study area.

The purpose of the study was to evaluate seepage losses in an earth lined canal. Earth lining is composed of compacted earth, mixed with some chemicals which improve the stabilization of the earth.

This is comparatively the cheapest type. Thickness of lining varies from 12 to 24 inches for bed and even more for steep e losses are more and the structural strength is also poor.

The elimination of steel reinforcement from concrete canal linings saves about 10 to 15% of the total cost (USBR ) During the past several years it has become popular to install concrete linings in small canals at the same time as final excavation and finishing, often using a laser to control the alignment and longitudinal slope.

Geomembrane work is very useful when dealing with dams. Seepage control is just one use for geomembranes. They can be used when working with canals, reservoirs, storage basins, dams, and tunnels.

In Europe, geomembranes have been used to repair old concrete and masonry dams.
