Flood estimation for roads, bridges and dams.
Flood estimation can be classified into two categories, i.e. flood prediction and flood forecasting. Flood prediction is used for the estimation of design floods, which are floods associated with a degree of risk of being ...
Effective HIV and AIDS management : a South African construction sector model.
Abstract available on PDF file.
An assessment of carbon emissions reduction potential through zero waste activities in South African municipalities.
The inception of global warming has resulted in mitigation efforts across all relevant sectors. Waste management activities produce approximately 12% of methane emissions in South Africa. The current scope of waste ...
Implementation of green measures for sustainable low-income housing in developing countries : guidelines for the design of new settlements in the South African context.
In South Africa, about 15,3% of the households were living in 2011 in formal state-subsidised low-income houses (houses for households with income lower than R 3500 - about $ 350 - per month), whereas 12,1% were living ...
Flow patterns around groynes in the coastal zone.
Semi-permeable groynes are used to modulate the long-shore transport for beach management purposes, but the optimal design of these structures remains unresolved. This in part is due to their ability to behave as both a ...
Anthropogenic impacts and biophysical interactions in Lake St Lucia.
The St Lucia estuarine lake system in South Africa is part of a UN- ESCO World Heritage site and a Ramsar wetland of international importance. Like many estuarine systems worldwide St Lucia has experienced signi cant ...
The role of waste data in changing behaviour : the case of the South African waste information system (SAWIS)
The South African waste information system (SAWIS) developed and implemented by the Department of Environmental Affairs in 2006, provided a unique case study to explore the research question “Can the collection of data ...
Following a cleaner production approach to guide the permitting process of odour producing industries : an assessment of case studies.
The eThekwini Municipality is facing two major challenges in controlling odorous emissions by various industries in the South Durban Basin; firstly, getting industry to manage their onsite odorous emissions and, secondly ...
The use of small scale hydroelectric power in South Africa, hydro and economic potential for rural electrification.
Small hydro generation refers to generating capacity of less than 10 MW with the most common being Run-of-River. In South Africa, the level of rural electrification is approximately 50 percent with most of the energy ...
Denitrification of leachate using domestic waste at different levels of stability : simulations in batch test.
Disposing of waste on land has been a method practiced by many countries because it is relatively inexpensive. This has led to the fast increase of landfilling option which is also due to increase of waste generation, ...
