  • Research and education - University of Illinois

    During the 2007-2008 academic year grants were awarded to Dr. Praveen Kumar and Dr. Art Schmidt in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Illinois, to implement a new data collection system on the Urbana campus. The goal of this project is the deployment of sensors to provide high-resolution, semi-realtime datasets for research and education. The resulting data is published in ...

  • Universities as research joint venture partners: does size of the venture matter?

    We observe that research joint ventures (RIVs) with university members are distinctly larger than those without. We seek to explain this observation by stressing that net gains are greater for industry participants in RIVs with a large number of members since the loss in appropriable information from the university's involvement decreases as the RJV's size increases. Further, universities show a ...

  • New University of Minnesota study documents mercury vapor emission levels and need for safer packaging, storage and transportation of fluorescent lamps

    Results of a recent study conducted by the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, Division of Environmental Health Sciences suggest that most containers used for storage and transportation of used fluorescent lamps to recycling centers do not provide necessary levels of protection against mercury vapors emitted from broken lamps. The new study, published in the March issue of the ...

  • Sarakasi Theatre - room acoustical measurements and modelling

    Measuring Reverberation Time and Speech Intelligibility using Balloons and an MP3 Player as External Sound Sources The non-profit organisation Sarakasi Trust owns a theatre in Nairobi Kenya, inside the former Shan Cinema. In this theatre, youths from the city slums are trained to be acrobats, so that they learn how to make a living without having to resort to crime. Shows and concerts are ...

  • Gaseous release in LiNH2–MgH2 systems

    Hydrogen is considered a safe and clean alternative to fossil fuels. Hydrogen storage is currently obtained by compressing the gas at high pressure. Researchers are currently attempting to tackle safety and energy density issues by locking hydrogen into solids, packing large quantities into small volumes. However, most of the known solids (i.e. intermetallics) show very low gravimetric density, ...

  • Evaluation of the absorption bed`s efficiency under the Ecoflo Biofilter

    The Ecoflo Biofilter is a wastewater treatment system designed for the sanitary drainage of decentralized dwellings. Preceded by a scptic tank, the chain of treatment comprises a biofiltration unit and a polishing field allowing the treated wastewater to be absorbed by the rcceptor ground. The Ecoflo Biofilter performances have been evaluated by numerous organizations (MDDEP, BNQ, NSF, CSTB, ...

  • Cadmium regarded as the most serious contaminant of the modern age

    Abstract Cadmium is today regarded as the most serious contaminant of the modern age. It is absorbed by many plants and seacreatures and, because of its toxicity, presents a major problem for foodstuffs. Contamination through fertilisers becomes an increasing problem. Unlike lead, cadmium contamination cannot be removed from plants by washing them; it is distributed throughout the organism. It ...

  • Sound field diffusivity at the top surface of schroeder diffuser barriers

    It has been shown in several studies that the T-shape profile barriers are one of the most successful noise barriers among many different profiles (May and Osman 1980; Hajek and Blaney 1984; Hothersall et al., 1991). In this case, it is shown by author (Monazzam and Lam, 2005) that in the same dimension, the T-shape profile has the highest performance compared to other profiled noise barriers. It ...

  • Case study - Water quality in the Mississippi Basin

    A resilient method for monitoring water quality and nitrate levels in the harsh aquatic environment of the Mississippi River, in section 16, was required by the University of Iowa -IIHR. The monitoring of continually accurate water quality data was important for analysis, in conjunction with the diurnal mussel study of the University of Iowa. Monitoring water over extended periods of time in ...

  • Pacific lessons on research engagement and impact

    The University of the South Pacific's massive catchment may mean less research cash, but its science helps the region, reports Anne Moorhead. The University of the South Pacific, known locally as USP, is one of just two regional universities in the world: the other is the University of theWest Indies. Serving the academic and research needs of 12 small island countries spread over ...

  • Capture of carbon dioxide from flue gas using solid regenerable sorbents

    Carbon dioxide emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels are a significant factor in global climate change. Large stationary sources such as coal-fired electric generating plants are likely to be the most cost-effective targets for carbon dioxide capture. At present, liquid amine-based scrubbing systems are the only processes available for this application. Processes based on regenerable ...

  • Solar Energy Sector Poised to be Upgraded With Tin-Based Cells

    Tinplate has recently gained a lot of attention when it was discovered that it had amazingly high propensity of absorbing the sun rays almost like other known materials productivity. Tinplate is a metal that is silvery-white in appearance and is atomic number 50 in the periodic table. Researchers from North western University have recently proved that tinplate is the same metal as tin ...

  • Understanding the impact of snow`s reflectance

    To help improve the accuracy of climate models, an international team involving the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has measured the reflectance of rough, snow-covered surfaces at large solar zenith angles. A crucial factor in climate models is Earth's albedo, which is the reflectance of Earth's surface: dark ground has a low albedo, reflecting little light, whereas ice and snow have a high ...

  • Performance evaluation of electrocoagulation process for diazinon removal from aqueous environments by using iron electrodes

    Pesticides comprise a variety of toxic substances and are used in agriculture as well as indoors to kill pests. The health risk of pesticides to humans is worsened by the fact that many of these substances have been shown to be carcinogenic and mutagenic. Organophosphorus pesticides (OPPs) have a higher acute toxicity than organochlorines, but they have the advantage of being rapidly degraded in ...

  • Cycle chemistry pH measurement

    pH measurement in high purity water has met with variable success. The high resistivity of pure water, the vulnerability to contamination, the variability of reference electrodes and additional temperature effects converge to make tins a particularly challenging measurement. Overcoming these obstacles requires a thorough understanding of the potential problems and their systematic solution. ...

  • What is an anechoic chamber and how quiet can it be?

    One of the things that we often talk about when we’re running our CPTC (Cirrus Product Training Courses) is how our hearing works and we often end up talking about how, if there’s no ambient sound, we can feel uncomfortable and can become disoriented very quickly. One of the best (or maybe the worst) places to experience this is in ...

  • `South Asian monsoon variations hard to fathom`

    Understanding how the South Asian monsoon will change in response to global warming  and resolving the uncertainties in projected changes are ‘demanding tasks’ for climate science, a review says. Current state-of-the-art general circulation models have difficulty simulating the regional ...

  • Monitoring greenhouse gas emissions from hydroelectric reservoirs in northern Quebec, Canada

    Surface waters of natural freshwater bodies are capable of releasing far more carbon into the atmosphere than they absorb (Cole et al. 1994). Artificial reservoirs are also known to have environmental impacts which include greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (Rosenberg et al. 1997, Fearnside et al. 2004, Tremblay et al. 2005). Therefore the inclusion of hydroelectric facilities as part of an overall ...
