  • Modeling Tip: How to Import BREEZE AERMOD files into BREEZE Risk Analyst for Human Health Risk Assessments

    Humans can be exposed to hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) either directly through inhalation or indirectly through ingestion or dermal contact, which can result in acute or chronic health effects. The risk of exposure varies depending on a number of variables, including the meteorological conditions, local geographical and emissions characteristics, the age of the individuals being exposed, and ...

  • The Basics of Slope Stability Analysis for Geosynthetics

    Slope stability analysis is vital to preventing slope failures in a variety of engineering applications including landfill design, roads, dams and embankments, to name a few. Proper analysis anticipates both natural and manmade slopes and failure of foundations and retaining walls. This blog covers the necessity of slope stability analysis, how to conduct the analysis and the role of ...

  • Analysing a system of systems characterisation to define system of systems engineering practices

    Even though there is no clear accepted definition for SoS, the term is widely recognised and typically refers to large-scale or complex systems that provide a set of capabilities. Since SoS is still a fairly infant field, there is also much discussion on the tools, methodologies, thought processes and analysis used to design these massive systems. The purpose of this paper is to describe five ...

  • Energy and exergy analyses of a steam reforming process for hydrogen production

    Hydrocarbon steam reforming is an important process for hydrogen production. In petroleum refineries, steam reforming is most commonly used for hydrogen production from naphtha and light hydrocarbon gases (methane, ethane and propane). Since the hydrocarbon steam reforming system is one of the highest energy intensive systems in a petroleum refinery it should be directed to a more efficient use ...

  • Analysing four of the most contaminated foodstuffs

    Food adulteration has been around since the Victorian times when cheese was often coloured with lead salts, beer and milk were watered down and flour was bulked out with chalk dust or ground bones [1]. Governments apply stringent legislation and quality standards to food products but the practice of adulteration, driven by greed and profit, is still seen. ...

  • Energy and exergy analyses of a spark-ignition engine

    In this paper, the performance of an internal combustion engine is evaluated at the steady-state condition by application of energy and exergy analysis using the experimental test results. The energy and exergy balances are calculated at different engine speeds. The results show that the heat rejection of energy and exergy flow increases with increasing engine speed. The exergy efficiencies are ...

  • The importance of maintaining your fixed gas analyser

    Plant technicians rigorously check for contaminates within the digester and ensure that the performance is optimised but maintaining the gas analyser monitoring the whole process is often overlooked.  Many analysers are used in harsh and potentially explosive environments and so it is of paramount importance that the operation runs smoothly and safely. With simple maintenance of your ...

  • Should your company be conducting life cycle analyses?

    Many companies have already answered yes to that question – for a combination of reasons typically related to stakeholder interest, key customer demands, public perception, and competitive positioning.  In fact, life cycle analysis (LCA) has increasingly become an important tool in mature corporate sustainability programs, providing organizations with a consistent methodology for ...

  • Comparing modelling techniques for analysing urban pluvial flooding

    Short peak rainfall intensities cause sewer systems to overflow leading to flooding of streets and houses. Due to climate change and densification of urban areas, this is expected to occur more often in the future. Hence, next to their minor (i.e. sewer) system, municipalities have to analyse their major (i.e. surface) system in order to anticipate urban flooding during extreme rainfall. Urban ...

  • Emissions analyser helps manage power station

    A multiparameter emissions monitor at Thetford power station is being used to demonstrate to the Environment Agency that the plant is performing within the conditions of its environmental permit. However, the data from the analyser, which was supplied by Milton Keynes based Quantitech, also performs a vitally important role in helping to manage the plant. “Individual gas readings are ...

  • Risk analysis of information systems by event process chains

    Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has an important impact on critical infrastructure operation. However, the current use of risk analysis techniques has reached its limits when analysing these systems at least in practical terms. The application of extended event process chains (EPC) bypasses some of the difficulties, as they model business processes within an information system ...

  • Analysing the sensitivity behaviour of two hydrology models

    Recently, the New Morris Method has been presented as an effective sensitivity analysis tool for mathematical models. The New Morris Method estimates the sensitivity of an output parameter to a given set of input parameters (first-order effects) and the extent these parameters interact with each other (second-order effects). This method requires the specification of two parameters (runs and ...

  • Effect of side-stream phosphorus recovery on biological phosphorus removal performance investigated by chemical and microbial analyses in a novel BNR-IC process

    The aim of this study was to assess the effect of side-stream ratio (SSR) on performance of phosphorus (P) removal and recovery in a novel process linking biological nutrients removal (BNR) and induced crystallization (IC). Results showed that P removal efficiency was significantly enhanced when given an appropriate SSR, resulting in effluent P concentrations decreasing from 0.75 to 0.39 mg/L ...
