  • Porirua New Zealand – WaStop® DN225 - Case Study

    Porirua City located 20 km north of Wellington has over 70 storm water outlets into the harbour. A number of these outlets are very flat on their approach to the harbour which generally means they are severely influenced by high tides. The problem with these outlets is that if a rain fall event coincides with a high tide, the ability of the storm water network to discharge is severely restricted. ...

  • Battery Storage will have a Profound Impact on Smart Buildings

    Often the best ideas are the most simple and elegant. If electric vehicles and consumer devices can have battery storage why can’t buildings? And if buildings can pull electricity from the grid at off peak times and store it in batteries, wouldn’t that save money? Since 2009, Stem based in California, have been working on these questions and disrupting the energy storage industry. ...

  • Chemical storage buildings isolate hazardous liquids and minimize damage from spills

    The improper storage of corrosives and flammable liquids is the leading cause of spills that can result in damage to facilities and impact worker safety. One of the most effective practices to help minimize damage from chemical spills is to isolate the various chemical hazards. Since knowledge of chemical compatibility is critical, it is important to understand that there are two major types of ...

  • Hazardous Material Storage Installations : Addressing concerns on safety and building public confidence

    Much public concern is raised on hazardous material bulk storages at vulnerable locations that cater the requirements of basic industries. This concern has grown into serious proportions after the ‘Bhopal’ incident. The Bhopal Gas Tragedy, history’s worst chemical accident, occurred in the night on 2nd Dec, 1984 at the Union Carbide Pesticides Plant in Bhopal, India. Around 27 MT of deadly ...

  • Sick-building syndrome and building-related illness

    Significant health problems linked to very poor indoor air qualityIndoor Air Quality (IAQ) deals with the content of interior air that could affect health and comfort of building occupants. The IAQ may be compromised by microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), chemicals (such as carbon monoxide, radon), allergens, or any mass or energy stressor are more prevalent than anyone could have predicted. ...

  • What Are Solar Buildings Technologies?

    Solar buildings technologies use the non-polluting power of the sun to help heat, cool, and power our buildings. Because buildings now use one-third of the energy currently consumed in this country, the potential markets for using solar buildings technologies in place of conventional ones is substantial. Whether you're a home owner, architect, builder, business owner, or industry or utility ...

  • A novel underground solar thermal heat storage unit cum heat exchanger for non air-conditioned buildings

    A novel passive space conditioning configuration is presented, integrating a Solar Collector System, Underground Storage Tank and Novel Heat Exchanger. This Underground Solar Thermal Heat Exchanger (USTHE) provided improved sensible heating/cooling of air by employing a Novel Heat Exchanger (NHX). The dynamic performance of the storage tank in USTHE is modelled using the finite difference method ...

  • Modelling floods in urban areas and representation of buildings with a method based on adjusted conveyance and storage characteristics

    The present paper reviews several approaches that can be used in capturing urban features in coarse resolution two-dimensional (2D) models and it demonstrates the effectiveness of a new approach against the straightforward 2D modelling approach on a hypothetical and a real-life case study work. The case study work addresses the use of coarse grid resolutions in 2D non-inertia models. The 2D ...

  • Model Build the Smart Way

    Wallingford Software’s InfoNet is used widely now as a data repository for collection systems and water supply systems, with a number of applications for managing, accessing, and displaying that data. However, InfoNet has other uses, including preparing input for model building, specifically the building of collection system models. Richard Allitt Associates (RAA) has developed a specific process ...

  • Energy Storage 301: Solar + Storage Economics - Case Study

    In this post we examine the economics of solar + storage. Specifically, we calculate the value of solar and storage for two commercial buildings in each of three markets: California, New York, and Hawaii. We find solar and storage are strongly synergistic in all three markets. The NPVs of solar + storage investments are greater than the sum of the NPVs of solar investments and storage investments ...

  • The feasibility of flocculation in a storage sedimentation basin

    ABSTRACTFor the Flemish situation, storage sedimentation basins are one of the best 'end-of-pipe' solutions to reduce the impact of combined sewer overflows on the receiving waters. In some cases, when the spilled pollution load is too high, the settling efficiency of the basin has to be improved. Adding coagulants could be a reasonable alternative for building larger basins. To estimate the ...

  • Plume Control under a City Building

    Subsurface remediation in a big city setting is complicated. Limited work space, heavy traffic, noise restrictions, and a dense network of utilities are just some of the factors that conspire to make the installation of any in situ plume control or plume reduction system a seemingly unsolvable logistical puzzle. Horizontal wells placed directly beneath a building can provide protection from soil ...
