Giving you the first comprehensive presentation of the ground breaking research undertaken at Heriot Watt University, with Research Council and industrial funding, this book brings a new perspective to the design of building drainage and vent systems. It provides the building services community with clear and verifiable design methods that will be robust enough to meet challenges such as climate change and water conservation; population migration to the mega cities of the developing world, and the consequent pressures of user concentration; the rise of the prestige building and the introduction of new appliances and control strategies. These all combine to make traditional codified design guidance insufficient. Many assumptions in existing codes defining the entrained airflows within building drainage vent systems cannot be theoretically supported, so designers concerned with these systems need analysis and simulation capabilities which are at least as reliable as those enjoyed by other building services practitioners.
The Method of Characteristics solution techniques which are well established in the pressure surge field are now used to provide solutions for drainage designers. The material is applied to a whole range of abstract scenarios then to a series of real world applications including the forensic modelling of the SARS virus spread within Amoy Gardens in 2003 and the refurbishment of the O2 Dome. Applications to specialised services, including underground station drainage and highly infectious disease treatment facilities are discussed and demonstrated, alongside the use of design and simulation techniques in support of product development.
Aimed at both professional and academic users, this book serves both as a design aid and as a core text for specialist masters courses in public health and building services engineering.

THE FATHER, A son, A daughter, A Love Affair shares a story based upon author Charles Watson's personal testimony about God's plan for marriage for each person. There are things in life that can't be rushed, and following God's preordained plan for finding a life partner falls into that category. Each chapter of this guide carefully explores each step in the process that God follows to enable us to find a true partner of the heart- the one true marriage partner for each person. Watson also includes the pertinent scripture that supports God's plan for love and marriage. Song of Solomon states that 'many waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it: no substantial amount of water can put out the fire of love that is in the heart.' When God determines that two people should come together in marriage, it is a wonderful, heartfelt event in the lives of two loving people. Watson cautions that it is not wise to rush or speed up the process, as it can lead to missteps and mistakes made in relationships that can be devastating. If the focus is on finding the best partner with God's loving guidance, a successful marriage will be the reward.
Research into Australia's freshwater turtles has progressed greatly in the last fifteen years. A number of new species have been formally described, thus increasing our appreciation of the complex biology and diversity of these beautiful reptiles. Many populations of turtles are currently in decline as they compete with ever expanding human populations for water.
This book embarks on a discussion of rulemaking in air transport, its processes and legalities, starting with a deconstruction of work carried out at the time of writing in various fields of air transport by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) which should be at the apex of rulemaking. This initial discussion, which demonstrates the weakness of rulemaking in the air transport field for lack of direction, purpose and structure in the development of authoritative rules and regulations that should serve as compelling directives from the main organization responsible for aviation, leads to an evaluation of the fundamental principles of rulemaking in ICAO, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States and the European Commission (EC).
