Anaerobic digestion process control using a knowledge-based system
Much attention has been devoted to the design and construction of wastewater treatment plants. However, relatively little attention has been devoted to plant operations. Knowledge based or expert systems are oriented toward ...
Formation and morphology of colloidal deposits in porous media
The effects of physical parameters such as fluid velocity, particle size and influent particle concentration on the morphology of colloidal deposits, removal efficiency and head loss development in porous media are ...
Flexural creep in pure and filled acrylic resin systems
The creep behavior of poly (methyl methacrylate) and acrylic polymer concrete (PC) systems based on methyl methacrylate was studied in flexure. Creep in both pure and filled systems followed a power law time dependence. A ...
Transient permeate flux analysis, cost estimation, and design optimization in crossflow membrane filtration
A generalized model is formulated to predict the time-dependent permeate flux by extending previous models to include the particle transport mechanisms of Brownian diffusion, shear-induced diffusion, inertial lift and ...
Laminar fluid flow, particle transport and permeate flux behavior in crossflow membrane filters
Similarity solutions for axial and lateral velocity profiles, pressure gradients and wall skin friction are derived for the laminar, isothermal single phase flow of incompressible fluids in channels having porous boundaries. ...
