  • Networking

    Spurred initially by frustration with the political deadlock that has surrounded Kyoto, municipal climate policy is asking for, and getting, more time in the spotlight. Last year—for the second UN climate change conference in a row—municipal leaders upstaged their national counterparts by pledging to go beyond the emissions reduction targets negotiated by the international community. While the ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Gas distribution network for households in Saudi Arabia: economic and demand estimation studies

    This study evaluates the economics of establishing a residential natural gas network in Saudi Arabia's Eastern Province (EP) to cater to the household demand for natural gas. The paper focuses primarily on household use of natural gas for cooking. Additional economic analysis of other household uses – as air conditioning, space and water heating – is incorporated. Demand streams of various ...

  • Sulfide emissions in sewer networks: focus on liquid to gas mass transfer coefficient

    H2S emission dynamics in sewers are conditioned by the mass transfer coefficient at the interface. This work aims at measuring the variation of the mass transfer coefficient with the hydraulic characteristics, with the objective of estimating H2S emission in gravity pipes, and collecting data to establish models independent of the system geometry. The ratio between the H2S and ...

  • The Need for a Total View of Water Networks

    The water industry is not short of software offerings, and so the arguments in favour of yet another software program had better be very good indeed. In this article we examine how one very significant community of users – operations managers, engineers and planners - have largely had their specific needs overlooked; we identify the type of system needed to fulfil their requirements and the ...

  • Prediction of water quality in South to North Water Transfer Project of China based on GA-optimized general regression neural network

    The safety of water delivery and water quality in the South to North Water Transfer Project of China is important to northern China. Water quality data, flow data and data on factors that influence water quality were collected from 25 May to 26 August, 2013. These data were used to forecast water quality and calculate the relative error when using a genetic algorithm optimized general regression ...

  • A flood forecasting neural network model with genetic algorithm

    It will be useful to attain a quick and accurate flood forecasting, particularly in a flood-prone region. The accomplishment of this objective can have far reaching significance by extending the lead time for issuing disaster warnings and furnishing ample time for citizens in vulnerable areas to take appropriate action, such as evacuation. In this paper, a novel hybrid model based on recent ...

  • Three-dimensional pore networks and transport properties of a shale gas formation determined from focused ion beam serial imaging

    Three-dimensional pore network reconstructions of mudstone properties are made using dual focused ion beam-scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM). Samples of Jurassic Haynesville Formation mudstone are examined with FIB-SEM and image analysis to determine pore properties, topology, and tortuosity. Resolvable pore morphologies (>~10 nm) include large slit-like pores between clay aggregates and ...

  • The challenge of an EU-GCC clean energy network

    The enhancement of EU-GCC cooperation on energy issues could be significantly facilitated from the establishment and operation of an EU GGC clean energy network (EU-GCC CLEANERGY.NET). CLEANERGY.NET would have to act as a catalyst and a coordinator for EU-GCC energy cooperation on different levels: research, technology and industry, but also on the level of energy policy, through dissemination of ...

  • Building the foundation for Prudhoe Bay oil production optimisation using neural networks

    Field data from the Prudhoe Bay oil field in Alaska was used to develop a neural network model of the cross-country gas transit pipeline network between the production separation facilities and central gas compression plant. The trained model was extensively tested and verified using 30% of the data that was not used during the training process. The results show good accuracy in reproducing the ...

  • Back-propagation neural network for performance prediction in trickling bed air biofilter

    Experimental studies were carried out with a laboratory-scale biotrickling filter to treat a gaseous stream contaminated with benzene, toluene and xylene (BTX) operated in a continuous mode. The biotrickling filter initially acclimatised with toluene was used to treat BTX compound individually at loading rates ranging from 7.2 g/m³hr to 62.2 g/m³hr, operated in a sequential mode. The results ...

  • Water network sectorization based on a genetic algorithm and minimum dissipated power paths

    Water Network Sectorization (WNS) consists of dividing a water system into sectors with an independent water supply. When each district is supplied by its only water source the districts can be defined as i-DMAs (isolated District Meter Areas) because they are completely cut off from the rest of the water network. This isolation of the i-DMAs may decrease hydraulic performance of the water ...
