Microplastics in sewage sludge: effects of treatment
(American Chemical Society, 2016-12-12)
Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTPs) are receptors for the cumulative loading of microplastics (MPs) derived from industry, landfill, domestic waste water and storm water. The partitioning of MPs through the settlement ...
Evaluating long-term performance of low-cost adsorbents using small-scale adsorption column experiments
This study investigated a novel method of predicting the long-term phosphorus removal performance of large-scale adsorption filters, using data derived from short-term, small-scale column experiments. The filter media ...
A methodological framework to determine optimum durations for the construction of soil water characteristic curves using centrifugation
(De Gruyter Open, 2016-12-30)
During laboratory assessment of the soil water characteristic curve (SWCC), determining equilibrium at various pressures, is challenging. This study establishes a methodological framework to identify appropriate experimental ...
Performance of novel media in stratified filters to remove organic carbon from lake water
(IWA Publishing, 2016-08-15)
Disinfection by-products (DBPs) are an ever-increasing occurrence in water networks, particularly those which abstract water from peatland areas. Although much research has been carried out to discover novel methods to ...
An analytical approach for the prediction of single pile and pile group behaviour in clay
In this paper, the 't-z method' is employed to describe the nonlinear behaviour of a single pile and is used to obtain simplified predictions of pile group behaviour by considering the interaction between two-piles in ...
Discussion: Interaction factor for large pile groups
(ICE Publishing, 2016-09-27)
The authors present an interesting paper on the use of the interaction factor method (IFM) for settlement analysis of large pile groups.
A multistage selective weighting method for improved microwave breast tomography
Microwave tomography has shown potential to successfully reconstruct the dielectric properties of the human breast, thereby providing an alternative to other imaging modalities used in breast imaging applications. Considering ...
Performance and surface clogging in intermittently loaded and slow sand filters containing novel media
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2016-05-20)
Slow sand filers are commonly used in water purification processes. However, with the emergence of new contaminants and concern over removing precursors to disinfection by-products, as well as traditional contaminants, ...
Assessment of intermittently loaded woodchip and sand filters to treat dairy soiled water
(IWA Publishing and Elsevier, 2016-07-31)
Land application of dairy soiled water (DSW) is expensive relative to its nutrient replacement value. The use of aerobic filters is an effective alternative method of treatment and potentially allows the final effluent to ...
Champions in our midst: the Apple doesn't fall far from the tree
In this issue, we are very proud to introduce you to one of the best-known early pioneers of the computer industry. His work on the early Apple computers catalyzed today's home computer industry, and he participated directly ...
