  • Utilizing available `coldness` from Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) regasification process for seawater desalination

    Abstract With the increasing use of natural gas, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is becoming more extensively used to ease the storage and transport of gas. The process of returning the natural gas to its gaseous state (regasification) prior to distribution to the gas pipeline absorbs large quantities of heat and therefore provides a readily available and inexpensive source of "coldness" at low ...

  • Knowing power grids and understanding complexity science

    Complex networks theory has been well established as a useful framework for studying and analysing structure, dynamics and evolution of many complex systems. Infrastructural and man–made systems like power grids, gas and water networks and the internet, have been also included in this network framework, albeit sometimes ignoring the huge historical body of knowledge surrounding them. Although ...
