  • A comparative study on the performance of sinking and milling micro-EDM for nanofinishing of tungsten carbide

    Micro-electrical discharge machining (micro-EDM) is a flexible machining technique offering the possibility to produce freeform microstructures and micromoulds using hard-but-conductive materials like tungsten carbide (WC). It is desirable to obtain fine surface finish directly using micro-EDM when micromoulds and dies are machined, so that subsequent polishing can be avoided. This paper presents ...

  • Flood prevention dams for arid regions at a micro-scale sub-catchment, case study: Tabuk, Saudi Arabia

    Unexpected flash flooding is one of the periodic hydrological problems affecting the city of Tabuk in Saudi Arabia. The region has high potential for floods as it suffers high rainfall intensity in a short time and also has high urbanization rates and topographic complexity. Constructing flood prevention dams is one option to solve this problem. A cost-effective design requires a detailed ...

  • Nucleation phenomenon in nanoparticle self-assemblies

    Dispersed nanoparticles self-assemble into complex structures when segregated from the solvent either by evaporation or precipitation. Thus, different micro- and macroscopic structures (opals, fractals, liquid crystals) formed by nanoparticles are observed as a result of the balance between electrostatic forces, surface tension, volume exclusion, substrate topography and affinity, and size, shape ...

  • Effect of bank curvatures on hyporheic water exchange at meter scale

    The micro-topography feature of a riverine system is a controlling attribute to induce the change of patterns and magnitudes of hyporheic water exchange. The study aims to determine how hyporheic water exchange is affected by the bank curvatures of test points at meter scale. A one-dimensional heat steady-state transport model was applied to determine patterns and magnitudes of vertical ...

  • Dispersion modelling near tunnel exits: simulation and measurements

    Measurements of car exhaust gases were made in May/June 1995 in the vicinity of the Bielefeld tunnel. CO and NOx from car exhausts were measured to allow comparison with a model simulation. Ozone was also measured. These measurements were made using commercial continuous analysers. A valve control system was used to investigate the dispersion of the trace gases. This allowed measurements at ...
