In hydraulic fracturing, resin-coated ceramic proppants can be added to fracturing fluid as an agent for propping the fractures. Resin-coated ceramic proppants have several advantages compared to the traditional silica sands and ceramic proppants. Resin-coated ceramic proppants can withstand much...
Transitions of microbial communities in high-solids anaerobic digestion with percolate recirculationDownload
High-solids anaerobic digestion (HSAD) is a growingly popular strategy for recovery of biomethane from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW). The focus of this thesis study is to advance fundamental understanding and engineering performance of high-solids anaerobic digestion...
Active traffic control and management requires traffic state estimation with high accuracy. Although an inductive loop detector can achieve high accuracy in terms of volume, speed and occupancy estimation, it cannot provide accurate segment-based traffic parameters, such as segment speed and...
In this research, the relationship between microscopic car-following models and macroscopic models has been explored and it was found that, based on the traditional assumption that traffic density is the reverse of space headway under steady-state homogeneous traffic conditions, most of the...
Towards a Rational Analysis and Design of Partially-Grouted Concrete Block Masonry Walls Under In-Plane ShearDownload
Masonry wall systems are an essential structural component of a building, providing resistance against lateral and gravity loads. Due to its economy and efficiency, most masonry walls in low- to moderate-seismic markets are partially-grouted, in which only the reinforced cells are filled with...
Towards More Efficient and Economical Phosphorus and Bioenergy Recovery from Source-Diverted BlackwaterDownload
Decentralized source-diverted blackwater resource recovery represents an attractive wastewater management approach. Source-diverted blackwater refers to toilet wastewater, with or without kitchen wastewater, containing over half of the domestic biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) load and over 90% of...
Cost effective sensors are increasingly adopted to enable a smart construction site that integrates sensory information and algorithms to improve the performance of construction operations from various perspectives including cost, schedule, risk, safety and so on. Imaging sensors and location...
Many deep gas wells contain acid gas components. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is one of the typical acid gases. Accurate flow simulations for H2S/H2O mixtures in reservoirs and wellbores require a proper thermodynamic model that is capable of accurately modeling the H2S/H2O mixtures under in-situ...
