The appropriateness of any development technology depends on its suitability to meet the needs, circumstances and capacities of the people in a unique and challenging environment. This paper focuses on the importance of collaborative innovation that harmonizes technical ingenuity with user satisfaction while working within social and environmental constraints. The people of Mylai Balaji Nagar (MBN), a low-income, peri-urban community on the fringe of Chennai, India, were recruited to participate in the design of an alternative safe water system with researchers from the University of Guelph and the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. The community obtains its drinking water from a nearby lake known to contain dangerously high concentrations of faecal indicator bacteria, implicated in diarrhoeal disease. This study employed a participatory design framework for the development of a safe water system capable of removing or rendering inactive bacterial pathogens and making the water safe for human consumption. Researchers undertook a five stage participatory design process modeled after participatory action research, to develop a household water filtration system. Following laboratory assessment to assess bacteriological and organics control efficacy, four treatment prototypes were presented to, and critiqued by, community representatives for their appropriateness to context.

There is an increasing interest in the humanitarian engineering curriculum, and a service-learning placement could be an important component of such a curriculum. International placements offer some important pedagogical advantages, but also have some practical and ethical limitations. Local community-based placements have the potential to be transformative for both the student and the community, although this potential is not always seen. In order to investigate the role of local placements, qualitative research interviews were conducted. Thirty-two semi-structured research interviews were conducted and analysed, resulting in a distinct outcome space. It is concluded that local humanitarian engineering placements greatly complement international placements and are strongly recommended if international placements are conducted. More importantly it is seen that we are better suited to address the marginalised in our own community, although it is often easier to see the needs of an outside populace. © 2010 SEFI.

An array of perforated hollow hemispherical shaped artificial reefs (HSAR) can be used as a submerged breakwater to provide opportunities for environmental enhancement, aesthetics and wave protection in coastal areas due to their characteristics that are not found in conventional breakwaters. These characteristics include the ability to promote water circulation and provide a fish habitat enhancement capability. In this paper, a study of the parameters influencing wave transmission through the proposed submerged breakwater is presented based on two dimensional tests using regular and irregular water waves conducted at Queens University Coastal Engineering Research Laboratory (QUCERL). The influences of wave steepness (Hi/gT2), reef proportion (h/B), submergence depth (h/d) and reef configurations on wave transmission was studied. Mathematical models for wave transmission were developed using Multiple Regression Analysis and can be used to predict the performance of the proposed submerged breakwater.

In this paper an alternative approach to the design of quarried stone breakwaters is discussed. The basic principal involved in this concept is the use of locally available materials. It is established that the greater the thickness of the armor layer, the smaller the stones that are required to provide stable protection against wave action. Therefore, the thickness of the armor layer for a specific breakwater is determined by the gradation of the available armor stones and the incident wave climate. The final cross-section makes allowance for the practical considerations of breakwater construction. New concepts for breakwaters that have resulted from the use of this alternative design procedure are described. Construction of these breakwaters in 1983-84 has demonstrated that significant cost savings are obtained.

A rational design procedure for rubblemound breakwater protection which will ensure both the structural integrity and hydraulic stability of individual concrete armor units and the overall armor system is presented. The procedure involves new experimental techniques for measuring strains in model concrete armor units in a hydraualic model of a breakwater subjected to simulated prototype wave attack and analytical techniques for determining equivalent prototype loads on units. Selected design loads are used to define the resultant stress distribution to allow the designer to take the necessary measures to ensure the structural performance of the unit in a breakwater environment.
