  • Second law analysis of a gravity–driven liquid film flowing along an inclined plate subjected to constant wall temperature

    The second law analysis of a gravity–driven liquid having temperature–dependent viscosity and flowing along an inclined heated plate was studied. The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) package FLUENT was used to obtain the velocity and temperature gradients, and the results were used to determine the entropy generation rate. Different cases of inclination angle and dimensionless parameters were ...

  • Aerobic and Anaerobic Transformations of Sulfide in a Sewer System – Field Study and Model Simulations

    ABSTRACTThe formation and fate of sulfide in a force main and a downstream-located gravity sewer were investigated in an extensive field study. Sulfide formation during approximately 4 hours of anaerobic transport in the force main was significant. The following gravity sewer was aerobic and a fast reduction of the sulfide concentration was observed due to sulfide oxidation and emission of ...

  • Evolutionary data-modelling of an innovative low reflective vertical quay

    Vertical walls are commonly used as berthing structures. However, conventional vertical quays may have serious technical and environmental problems, as they reflect almost all the energy of the incident waves, thus affecting operational conditions and structural strength. These drawbacks can be overcome by the use of low reflective structures, but for some instances no theoretical equations ...

  • Engineering Properties of Tire/Soil Mixtures as a Lightweight Fill Material

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) estimates that over 279 million discarded tires are being added annually to the already existing stockpile of two billion tires. Current disposal and stacking methods of waste tires are not acceptable due to the possibility of fire and health hazards. Several states and the federal government have issued legislation that encourages or ...

  • Optimisation of micro-processes for shear-assisted solid–liquid separation in a rotatory batch flow vortex reactor

    This paper reports the study of micro-processes in a novel pre-treatment technique using a pellet forming batch flow vortex reactor of cylindrical shape that consists of axially revolving rotor plates between fixed stator plates. The suspension was first mixed with high molecular weight synthetic polymers by stirring for approximately 50 seconds and then agitated for 20 minutes. The process ...

  • A sewer ventilation model applying conservation of momentum

    The work presented herein was completed in an effort to characterize the forces influencing ventilation in gravity sewers and to develop a mathematical model, based on conservation of momentum, capable of accounting for friction at the headspace/pipe interface, drag at the air/water interface, and buoyancy caused by air density differences between a sewer headspace and ambient. Experiments were ...

  • Light-bulb Liars II: Mercury and CFLs

    The Washington Times ran a commentary July 11 that took a swipe at compact fluorescent lights. Titled “Light-bulb liars,” the article warns that broken CFLs are an “environment disaster in your family room” that “could poison the dog, the kid and the wall-to-wall rug.”To underscore the gravity of CFL dangers, the article then takes us through the Environmental Protection Agency’s step-by-step ...

  • Innovative Multi-Media Filter – Continuous Backwash Filter

    The disadvantages of conventional MMF based pretreatment Conventional pretreatment is based on multimedia filters (MMF) implemented in large scale desalination plants. Although this filtration method is well proven and provides reliable filtration efficiency, it conceals an inherent drawback, the disadvantages of which relate mainly to the backwashing mechanism. The ...

  • Give it a Whirl

    The oil and gas industry uses so-called cyclones to separate mixtures of solids, fluids, or gases by centrifugal forces. The company ASCOM that was acquired by Sulzer in 2014 has developed a new generation of compact cyclonic separators with a large operating range. This equipment can be used inline inside pipe segments, replacing conventional technology that requires several large vessels. ...

  • Oil Skimmer makes oil/water separator more efficient

    Industrial facilities depend on oil/water separators to separate oil from its waste water. While oil/water separators are a helpful component to a plant's wastewater system, oil/water separators traditionally do not provide an efficient method of removing oil once it has been separated from the waste stream. Traditionally, the separator industry has either used overflow skimmer pipes or weirs, or ...
