  • A novel freeze protection strategy for shallow buried sewer pipes: temperature modelling and field investigation

    The burial of sewer and water pipes below the maximum ground frost depth can be very costly and laborious in regions with cold winters. If a freeze protection measure is applied, the utility lines can be installed in a shallower trench to reduce the excavation needs. One freeze protection measure, so called heat tracing, consists of supplying heat along the pipes. In this work, the use of 4th ...

  • History of sanitation and hygiene technologies in the Hellenic world

    Sanitation and hygiene technologies have existed in ancient Hellas since the Bronze Age (ca. 3200–1100 bc), when extensive sewerage and drainage and other elaborate sanitary structures were known in Minoan palaces and towns. Classical and Hellenistic periods should be considered as the most progressive eras in the design of sanitary engineering. At that time anatomically shaped ...

  • Different erosion characteristics of sediment deposits in combined and storm sewers

    To investigate the different erosion patterns of sediments in combined and storm sewers, sediments from three separate sewer systems and two combined sewer systems in urban Shanghai were collected for the flushing experiments. These experiments were conducted with different consolidation periods and shear velocities. As the consolidation period increases, dissolved oxygen exhibits a positive ...

  • Condition assessment program continues in North Queensland

    Justification of an ongoing condition assessment program can, at times, be difficult for water utilities. However, successful inspections that deliver actionable outcomes on how to manage aging assets make this justification much easier. Certainly that was the case for Mackay Regional Council (MRC) when it engaged the services of ...

  • How do You Know When You Need Commercial Plumbers

    In your day-to-day routine, either at home or at your business, the plumbing doesn’t get much attention. That is, until it starts showing warning signs of problems via sinks, tubs, and shower stalls not draining, toilets not flushing, or sewage backing up into your basement. It’s true you can buy drain openers and cleaners in the hardware store or even in the grocery store, but these ...

  • Experimental study of hydraulics and sediment capture efficiency in catchbasins

    Catchbasins (also known as gully pot in the UK and Australia) are used to receive surface runoff and drain the stormwater into storm sewers. The recent interest in catchbasins is to improve their effectiveness in removing sediments in stormwater. An experimental study was conducted to examine the hydraulic features and sediment capture efficiency in catchbasins, with and without a bottom sump. ...

  • A support vector regression-firefly algorithm-based model for limiting velocity prediction in sewer pipes

    Sediment transport without deposition is an essential consideration in the optimum design of sewer pipes. In this study, a novel method based on a combination of support vector regression (SVR) and the firefly algorithm (FFA) is proposed to predict the minimum velocity required to avoid sediment settling in pipe channels, which is expressed as the densimetric Froude number (Fr). The ...
