Automatic icemakers are integrated into refrigerators to ensure a consistent ice supply and improve energy efficiency. Despite these advantages, a thorough investigation of the automatic icemaking process in domestic refrigerator-freezers is lacking in the literature. This study aims at assessing the performance of automatic icemaking process...

This study investigates the development of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) gel matrices for biomass immobilization in wastewater treatment. The PVA hydrogels were prepared through a freezing–thawing (F-T) cross-linking process and reinforced with high surface area nanoparticles to improve their mechanical stability and porosity. The PVA/nanocomposite...

Bed permeability is a crucial factor in blast furnace performance which depends on the material distribution achieved through charging. Since a homogeneous bed of pellet and sinter is recommended, it is crucial to understand whether segregation of the pellet-sinter mixture occurs during charging. The Discrete Element Method is useful in this...

Geothermal energy can be promising to help the energy transition. Warm water is pumped up from a geothermal well and after it is cooled down, the cold water is reinjected into the hot aquifer underground. The temperature change could cause chemical balances to be disturbed and result in precipitation on the porous medium of the aquifer. This...

Removal of ammonium from simulated ammonium salt solutions was done using bipolar membrane electrodialysis (BPMED), without the use of chemicals. The effect of spacer thickness and open area on the overall energy consumption of BPMED to transport ammonium from the diluate was assessed in batch experiments. The electrochemical energy consumption...

Air bearings are a vital component to high tech machines and have been in widespread use since the 1960s. They provide near frictionless motion, have high stiffness and a near infinite lifetime. When looking at existing literature the influence of the porosity on the dynamic characteristics has not been researched in depth. Especially when...

This research paper focuses on the phenomenon of social and urban morphological contrasts within community boundaries caused by socioeconomic inequality and the process of urban development. This paper also discusses the reason and the spatial needs for social integration. This topic is becoming increasingly relevant in London because of the...

The constant manipulation of the Dutch delta system and the resulting creation of hard borders between the natural river landscape, the harbor and the city has led to a destabilized delta system(Hein, 2021; Meyer et al., 2015). The spatial and ecological challenges resulting from population growth and the resulting urban growth, as well as...

This paper evaluates the potential of changing the welding force and the compliance of the energy director (ED) to reduce the effects caused by misaligned adherends, which were: increased through-thickness heating, reduced size of welded area and increased heating time. In the methodology that was followed, we welded adherends misaligned by...

This study aims at applying and verifying the MFI-UF method to predict particulate fouling in RO plants. Two full-scale RO plants treating surface water, with average capacity of 800–2000 m<sup>3</sup>/h, were studied. Firstly, the MFI-UF of RO feed and concentrate was measured using 5–100 kDa membranes at same flux applied in the RO plants ...

The heterogeneity of the Upper Jurassic carbonate reservoir (Malm reservoir) beneath the North Alpine Foreland Basin has a significant influence on the mass and heat flow processes during geothermal exploitation. Geophysical borehole data revealed that sub-seismic scale fractures and karstified fractures occur at the inflow zones of deep...

We seek to address how air entrapment mechanisms during infiltration are influenced by the wetting characteristics of the fluid and the pore network formed by the reinforcement. To this end, we evaluated the behavior of two model fluids with different surface tensions, infiltrating three carbon fiber reinforcements, by means of X-ray...

We investigated the applicability of Silica encapsulated, superparamagnetic DNA particles (SiDNAmag) in determining aquifer hydraulic parameters at different ionic strengths (1 mM, 5 mM, and 20 mM phosphate buffer) of injection suspension. Thereto, in a homogeneous, unconsolidated sand tank we pulse - injected two uniquely sequenced SiDNAmag...

The properties of the interfacial transition zone (ITZ) between microfiber and cement-based matrix are of primary significance for the overall behavior of strain hardening cementitious composites (SHCCs). However, due to the relatively small diameter of polymeric microfibers (e.g., PVA fiber), it is technically difficult to obtain...

A palatial building rests by Rue de Bois Sauvage of Brussels, an intimate street located at the exact point where the lower historic city ends and upper bureaucratic city starts. The Palace remains like a parasite of a larger introverted structure that fortifies an entire urban block to hide the offices of the National Bank of Belgium. The...

Over the last 4 decades, remarkable progress has been made in the modelling of casting processes. The development of casting models is well reflected in the proceedings of the 15 Modelling of Casting, Welding and Advanced Solidification Processes (MCWASP) conferences that have been held since 1980. Computer simulations have enabled a better...

Phase change materials (PCM) RT-28HC, RT-35HC, and RT-44HC with three different melting temperatures, 29 °C, 36 °C, and 44 °C, with similar thermal properties, are considered. The PCM is oriented from the left to right side of the heat sink in its increasing order. The fins are attached to the heat sink longitudinally, and its orientation...

This study aimed to quantify the effect of membrane surface porosity on particulate fouling predicted by the MFI-UF method at constant flux. Firstly, the surface porosity of polyethersulfone UF membranes (5–100 kDa) was determined using ultra-high resolution SEM. Thereafter, the MFI-UF was measured using suspensions of polystyrene particles ...

Natural sediment flocs are fragile and highly heterogeneous aggregates of biogenic and minerogenic material typically with high porosity and low density. In aquatic environments dominated by fine, cohesive or mixed sediments they can dominate suspended sediment flux. Consequently, monitoring and modelling the behaviour, transport and...

A method is presented to directly measure the mass output of an impaction printer coupled with a spark ablation generator. It is based on a quartz crystal microbalance and shown to be reliable in quantifying mass deposition rate. Here, the method is demonstrated with an Au nanoparticle aerosol synthesized under several spark ablation and...
