  • Assessing the impact of arid area urbanization on flash floods using GIS, remote sensing, and HEC-HMS rainfall–runoff modeling

    This study uses an integrated approach, bringing together geographic information system (GIS), remote sensing, and rainfall–runoff modeling, to assess the urbanization impact on flash floods in arid areas. Runoff modeling was carried out as a function of the catchment characteristics and the maximum daily rainfall parameters. Land-use types were extracted from the supervised classification of ...

  • A step closer toward maintenance-free gear

    Abstract—A difficult-to-predict electrical failure is the continuity failure. Pressure junctions are common problem sources for continuity failures. Available tools to search for pressure-junction problems include low-resistance testing, temperature monitoring using physical contact between sensor and heated part, pyrometer temperature monitoring, infrared photography, and visual ...

  • Closed vessel or open channel UV disinfection systems

    Ultra violet disinfection is now a standard feature in most waste water disinfection systems. UV has also been adopted by the drinking water community, as a barrier against the chlorine tolerant species such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The technology is widely favored due to its non- chemical nature, the fact that no subsequent de-chlorination process is required, and its ability to be ...

  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • Aluminium temperature measurement developments

    Previously in Aluminium International Today, Richard Gagg discussed the importance of accurate temperature measurements for modern aluminium extrusions. In this article, he discusses parallel developments, which now enable non-contact temperature sensors to automatically and dynamically track and accommodate physical process changes as they occur. Higher quality extrusions and increased ...
