Life at the End of the Tunnel
Deadly tunnel fires in Europe have raised new concerns about tunnel fire safety around the world. Modifications to structures, mechanical systems, and operating procedures can make new...

Surface Irrigation
Surface irrigation refers to a large group of irrigation methods in which water is distributed by gravity over the surface of the field. Water is typically introduced at the high point...

Subirrigation: Water Table Management
Water table management (subirrigation) is accomplished by controlling the water table, usually through a subsurface drainage system. The crop is subirrigated with water being furnished...
