Rainwater as a resource has been underrated due to scientific misunderstandings about its quality, the lack of hydrologic design tools for small catchments, such as roofs, the preference for large infrastructures, and the small number of successful cases reported. This book summarizes 17 years of scientific research, operational monitoring, and practical demonstration projects made at Seoul National University Rainwater Research Center. A new paradigm of rainwater is proposed, which is to collect rainwater and use it, instead of draining it. Based on conventional hydrology and methodology, a hydrologic modelling method for micro-catchment is suggested. By incorporating several controllable measures into the design, the system can solve several water-related problems such as flooding, water conservation, emergency water storage, and groundwater recharge. Now is the time to adapt. Many good examples are reported from around the world, including South Korea. Fifty-nine South Korean cities have announced regulations and commitment to become ‘Rain Cities’ by offering financial incentives to rainwater management systems or subsidizing them. This book is written to give hope to those who seek to transform their community from a ‘Drain City’ to a ‘Rain City’. It has been prepared to clear the ambiguity about rainwater management and transform the experts as well as the citizens to become active proponents of rainwater. This book can be a guide to transform the world into Rain Cities, and become a viable solution toward Sustainable Development Goal Number 6.

With the encroachment of the Internet into nearly all aspects of work and life, it seems as though information is everywhere. However, there is information and then there is correct, appropriate, and timely information. While we might love being able to turn to Wikipedia® for encyclopedia-like information or search Google® for the thousands of links on a topic, engineers need the best information, information that is evaluated, up-to-date, and complete. Accurate, vetted information is necessary when building new skyscrapers or developing new prosthetics for returning military veterans While the award-winning first edition of Using the Engineering Literature used a roadmap analogy, we now need a three-dimensional analysis reflecting the complex and dynamic nature of research in the information age. Using the Engineering Literature, Second Edition provides a guide to the wide range of resources available in all fields of engineering. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and features new sections on nanotechnology as well as green engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. Engineers have an effect, directly and indirectly, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. Comprehensive and up to date, with expert chapter authors, this book fills a gap in the literature, providing critical information in a user-friendly format.

The field of engineering is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, and there is an ever-growing need for engineers to investigate engineering and scientific resources outside their own area of expertise. However, studies have shown that quality information-finding skills often tend to be lacking in the engineering profession. Using the Engineering Literature is a guide to the wide range of resources in all fields of engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. While print is still important, resources are increasingly being made available in electronic formats, and the Web is now a major resource. Engineers have an effect, whether direct or not, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. The book takes an engineering sub-discipline approach, detailing those resources that are most important for the practicing engineer and the librarians who work in engineering. Each chapter provides a short history and description of the discipline, then lists the most important resources by format: handbooks, dictionaries, texts, journals, websites, etc. Most references include a short annotation. The authors of each chapter are well-known, experienced librarians or faculty in the appropriate engineering discipline, sharing their expertise and experiences with engineering information. This is a guide to resources that are often unknown to the practicing engineer. It also serves as a textbook for the library school student or new engineering librarian, as well as a time-saving handbook for current librarians. The arrangement of materials provides easy and logical access to evaluated resources in engineering and supporting disciplines, providing a tool that is useful in reference services and collection development.

Latest developments of urban hydrology and hydraulic design procedures for storm water management.Drainage planning is an approach that integrates both local and regional efforts to identify drainage conveyance and storage facilities based on hydrologic optimization and cost minimization individually and collectively. In general, the first six chapters cover the hydrologic procedures for rainfall and runoff predictions, and the next 12 chapters focus on hydraulic designs of urban channel, culvert, street inlet, sewer drain, detention basin, retention basin, infiltration basin, low impact designs, and storm water modeling techniques by various routing methods.Hydrology analyses are lengthy in calculation and repetitive in procedure. As a result, Excel Spreadsheet is the most useful and handy tool for hydraulic and hydrologic designs. This book includes 18 sets of spreadsheets developed for 18 subjects. With these spreadsheets, it is easy for the reader to conduct sensitivity tests. Many of the design methods documented in this book have been adopted as the recommended design procedure by Denver, Las Vegas, and Sacramento metropolitan areas in the United States. Based on these methods, there are many design computer models that have been developed and supported by the Denver metro governments for stormwater design purposes.

This book presents the latest developments in street drainage design and inlet sizing. Street drainage is vital to the preservation of urban environment. All streets are designed to pass the excess storm water. Street drainage design is always subject to the public safety that sets forth the allowable water spread on street and flow depth in gutter.Chapter 1 covers street classifications and their functions for both traffic movement and storm water drainage. The design rainfall statistics in Chapter 2 and the rational method in Chapter 3 are introduced to determine the stormwater design flow on the street. Street hydraulic capacity is defined for two aspects: conveyance capacity for a sloping street in Chapter 4 and storage capacity at a street sump in Chapter 5. Wherever the design flow exceeds the street allowable capacity, a street inlet should be placed. From the hydraulic point of view, street inlets are classified into sump and on-grade interceptions. Chapter 6 in this book summarizes the design procedures to size grate, curb opening, slotted, and combination inlets. Street inlets are connected to the street manhole and sewer systems. Chapter 7 presents the basic procedure to size the sewer segments in a storm sewer system. All sewer segments are subject to the backwater effect. Chapter 8 outlines the detailed procedure to calculate the hydraulic and energy grade lines. Depending on the upstream and downstream conditions, a sewer flow is analyzed as open-channel flow, surcharged flow, or pressurized flow. The design methodology summarized in this book has been adopted by the metropolitan cities and counties in Denver, Colorado. The computing procedures for street hydraulic analysis and inlet sizing have been computerized for convenience. UDINLET is a Micro Soft Excel model for street drainage design that includes (1) analysis of street allowable capacity, (2) determination of minor and major flood flow conditions, and (3) sizing of street inlets on a continuous grade or in a sump. Neo-UDSEWER is the computer model developed to analyze the flow through a sewer system using circular, rectangular, and elliptical pipes. Neo-UDSEWER is capable of analyzing the mixed flow among open channel flow, surcharged flow, and pressurized flow when the sewer exit is subject to a high tailwater. Neo-UDSEWER calculates hydraulic and energy grade lines with consideration of friction, bend, and juncture losses. Neo-UDSEWER also calculates the excavated earth volume along the sewer system for cost estimation.
