Using image processing for determination of settled sludge volume
(IWA Publishing, 2018-07-12)
Determination of the sludge volume index is key to describing the settling characteristics of sludge in the aeration process of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). The two core components of this calculation are the settled ...
Flipped learning in a civil engineering module: student and instructor experiences
(Irish Learning Technology Association, 2018-08-24)
Flipped learning is a form of active learning in which the basic content is assimilated before scheduled classroom sessions, enabling more productive use of classroom time to cultivate problem-solving ability, a key ...

A novel image processing-based system for turbidity measurement in domestic and industrial wastewater
(IWA Publishing, 2018-01-19)
Wastewater treatment facilities are continually challenged to meet both environmental regulations and reduce running costs (particularly energy and staffing costs). Improving the efficiency of operational monitoring at ...
The influence of crown and stem characteristics on timber quality in softwoods
The relationships between several crown and tree properties and timber quality were examined on three softwood species: Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco), Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H. Karst) and Sitka ...
The influence of panel lay-up on the characteristic bending and rolling shear strength of CLT
The objective of this study was to characterise the behaviour of cross laminated timber (CLT) panels and the influence of the panel lay-up on the failure strength. Three different panel configurations of thickness, 60 ...
Effects of fertiliser on phosphorus pools in soils with contrasting organic matter content: A fractionation and path analysis study
With the intensification of agricultural production in many European countries, more marginal soils with elevated organic matter (OM) content are being brought into cultivation. However, little is known about the transformations ...
Contrasting yield responses to phosphorus applications on mineral and organic soils from extensively managed grasslands: Implications for P management in high ecological status catchments
Phosphorus (P) loss from grassland production is one of the main causes affecting high status water bodies in Europe. Soils with a high content in organic matter (OM), even if extensively managed, are particularly vulnerable ...
Defining corporate energy policy and strategy to achieve carbon Emissions reduction Targets via energy MANAGEMENT in non-energy intensive multi-site manufacturing organisations
Research on the characteristics of long-term energy policy and associated strategies in multisite manufacturing organisations is limited. Non-energy intensive multinationals do not face the environmental regulations ...
Application of infrared thermography technique to the thermal assessment of multiple thermal bridges and windows
A major contribution to the global trend in reducing energy consumption can be made by improving the thermal performance of buildings. Minimization of heat loss via the building envelope is key to maximizing building energy ...
