Computational study of an integrated collector storage solar water heater. (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Garnier, C., Currie, J., Muneer, T., & Girard, A. (2008). Computational study of an integrated collector storage solar water heater.

A simple low cost integrated collector storage solar water heater (ICS-SWH) which has the potential to substantially reduce domestic energy use was proposed for simulation. The system takes the form of a rectangular-shape incorporating the solar col... Read More about Computational study of an integrated collector storage solar water heater..

Solar thermal technologies are amongst the most diverse and effective renewable energy technologies. They range from low-temperature (200°C) and sophisticated ones like solar air conditioning and solar thermal power generation. Solar thermal technolo... Read More about Solar Thermal Technologies..

Landfill modelling challenge: HBM modelling predictions (2008)
Journal Article
McDougall, J. (2008). Landfill modelling challenge: HBM modelling predictions. Proceedings of the ICE - Waste and Resource Management, 161, 147-153. https://doi.org/10.1680/warm.2008.161.4.147

Two laboratory-scale consolidating anaerobic reactors were commissioned, constructed and monitored by Southampton University's waste research group to investigate the long-term behaviour of decomposing waste. The reactor tests were run for 919 days w... Read More about Landfill modelling challenge: HBM modelling predictions.

MARCIC rules OK? Liability in the law of nuisance in Scotland for escapes from overloaded sewers (2008)
Journal Article
McManus, F. (2008). MARCIC rules OK? Liability in the law of nuisance in Scotland for escapes from overloaded sewers. Journal of Water Law, 19, 61-69

The purpose of this article is to discuss the potential liability in the law of nuisance of Scottish Water for harm which is caused by escapes of sewage from public sewers which, although perfectly adequate when they were originally constructed, beco...

Geomechanics and Long-Term Landfill Settlement (2008)
Conference Proceeding
McDougall, J. (2008). Geomechanics and Long-Term Landfill Settlement. In GeoCongress 2008: Geotechnics of Waste Management and Remediation Proceedings of sessions of GeoCongress 2008 (482-490). https://doi.org/10.1061/40970%28309%2924

Long term landfill settlement is commonly attributed to two phenomena: creep and biodegradation. Biodegradation, which may contribute the greater proportion of longā€term settlement, is a function of a range of factors, many of which are not easily as...
