Performance of a stratified sand filter in removal of chemical oxygen demand, total suspended solids and ammonia nitrogen from high-strength wastewaters.
(Journal of Environmental Management, 2007-06-01)
A stratified sand filter column, operated in recirculation mode and treating synthetic effluent resembling high strength dairy wastewaters was studied over a 342 day duration. The aim of this paper was to examine the ...
One-Class Support Vector Machine Calibration Using Particle Swarm Optimisation
Abstract. Population-based search methods such as evolutionary algorithms, shuffled complex algorithms, simulated annealing and ant colony search are increasingly used as automatic calibration methods ...
Models of flow-induced loading on blood cells in laminar and turbulent flow, with application to cardiovascular device flow
Viscous shear stress and Reynolds stress are often used to predict hemolysis and thrombosis due to flow-induced stress on blood elements in cardiovascular devices. These macroscopic stresses are distinct from the true ...
Harvesting effects on biomass and nutrient retention in Phragmites australis in a free-water surface constructed wetland in western Ireland
The aim of this study was to examine the seasonal variation in biomass, total nitrogen (Tot-N) and total phosphorus (Tot-P) content of Phragmites australis in a 3-cell free-water surface (FWS) constructed wetland in western ...
