Hydrodynamic modelling approaches to assess mechanisms affecting the structural performance and maintenance of vortex drops shaft structures
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-07-29)
Vortex drop shafts, a key hydraulic structure within modern day deep sewer conveyance systems, must be designed structurally to sustain performance and longevity of operating life under very energetic loading conditions. ...
Microbiological characterisation and impact of suspended solids on pathogen removal from wastewaters in dairy processing factories
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-08-29)
In this Research Communication we investigate the microbiological profile of 12 dairy wastewater streams from three contrasting Irish dairy processing factories to determine whether faecal indicators/pathogens were present ...
Detecting the end of nitrification in small and decentralized wastewater treatment systems using low-resource real-time control methods
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2018-06-12)
There is increasing demand on operators of small-scale wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to improve biological nutrient removal and energy efficiency while being subject to unique challenges, including reduced resources. ...
End use level water and energy interactions: A large non-residential building case study
Within the European Union, buildings account for around 40% of the energy use and 36% of CO2 emissions, thus representing a significant challenge in the context of recent EU directives that require all new buildings to be ...
Novel use of peatlands as future locations for the sustainable intensification of freshwater aquaculture production - A case study from the Republic of Ireland
There has been an increasing interest in enhancing freshwater aquaculture processes without hindering the progress of the Water Framework Directive. This constitutes the first study to describe a new concept in integrated ...
