Proceedings of sessions of the ASCE National Convention, held in Nashville, Tennessee, 1988. Sponsored by the Energy Division of ASCE.
This collection contains 17 papers that describe opportunities for civil engineers in resolving apparent conflicts between needs for energy generation and environmental acceptability. Papers examine the decommissioning of nuclear facilities with regard to risk assessment in nuclear and hazardous waste plants and environmental effects; several case studies are presented. Other papers assess current trends in resource recovery technology and describe municipal energy recovery systems.
