Themed monographs occasionally published by JCI are collections of works which address a specific topic from a multidisciplinary perspective and delve deeply into a highly-specialized field.

Monographs from this edition are usually published in Serbian and have varying circulation levels. They are printed in full color and richly illustrated, in B5 format, and contain about 500 pages.  

The monographs are not distributed commercially. Libraries and universities can obtain them on request.  

Water Information Systems for Hydropower Resources Management in Serbia

We highly recommend the monograph Water Information Systems for Hydropower Resources Management in Serbia, edited by Dejan Divac, Dušan P

Extract from Foreword

“In order to advance management of hydropower resources, we must integrate current knowledge about water flow processes (from precipitation which reaches a drainage area to the discharge of water from a hydroelectric power plant), with real and up-to-date data about the current state of the system and with optimization algorithms which will ensure the achievement of our goal and compliance with set criteria. It is very important for results to be usable in real time, so timely support in the decision-making process is provided to managers of hydroelectric power plants and water control facilities."rodanović and Nikola Milovojević and published in December 2009.

 Groundwaters of Vojvodina

Monografija_Podzemne_vode_Vojvodine_-_korica

Extract from Preface

“The monographGroundwaters of Vojvodina is a summation of all findings to date about the hydrogeological features of rocks and hydrodynamic and hydrochemical properties of groundwaters within the territory of Vojvodina, which are of relevance for the evaluation and explanation of current extraction and for assessing the potential for groundwater use for household and industrial water supply in Vojvodina in the coming decades.”

 

 

 

 

 

Stress and Strain Modeling of Fractured Rocks

monografija-divac-korica-web

Extract from Review

“The authors have systematically studied and presented the highly complex problem of defining stress and strain correlations of solid rocks with pronounced planar discontinuities. Relying on conventional treatment of plastic deformation, the authors have developed an original formulation for the parameters of the flow function and the non-associative function of the plastic deformation potential, applying it to a spatial problem with an arbitrary number of discontinuities.

The application of the results in engineering practice is valuable for analyses of interactions between structures and fractured rocks, meaning that this book, in which a rock behavior model has been well developed and studied in detail, can shed considerable light on the problem of reliable and efficient sizing of structures.”

 

 

Heavy Rainfall Intensities in Serbia

Extract from preface

The main cause of floods, particularly disastrous floods in natural river valleys, is generally the intensity of short-duration heavy rainfall events.
The goal of this Monograph was to establish models and procedures for determining relevant characteristics of short-duration rainfall events at any location in Serbia, based on available data from 30 pluviograph stations and 437 rain gauge stations. In order to do so, relevant rainfall characteristics were specified for the 30 pluviograph stations, including rainfall depth, rainfall intensity and hyetograph shape, and then processed using pluviograph and rain gauge data. Pertinent characteristics were transformed into dimensionless quantities and zoned. Heavy rainfall reduction curves were generated. The characteristics derived from the 30 pluviograph stations were correlated with the characteristics of the heaviest one-day rainfall events recorded by the 437 rain gauge stations, and a basis was created for determining the properties of short-duration rainfall events at virtually any point within the territory of Serbia. The entire procedure was performed in a GIS environment and 70 GIS maps were produced showing heavy rainfall intensities for seven probabilities of occurrence x 10 rainfall durations. Owing to the advantages of GIS technology, it was possible to take any point in Serbia, by specifying its geographic coordinates (X, Y), and determine analytical rainfall depths (or rainfall intensities) and rainfall distributions for certain rainfall event durations and probabilities of occurrence (or return periods).
