Anodic Oxidation of Phenols in Dilute Aqueous Solutions

Large-Scale Experiments on the Spreading and Dilution of Cold Gasclouds in a Controlled Environment

Localized Mixing for Improvement of Hydropower Releases from J. Percy Priest Reservoir
The J. Percy Priest Project, located on the Stones River near Nashville, TN, experienced low dissolved oxygen (DO) in the tailwaters during hydropower generation. Using commercially available...

Tracer Dilution Flow Measurement Application to Short Penstock Length
Absolute performance evaluation of hydro-turbines requires the determination of flowrates. Flow measurement is probably the most difficult aspect of determining a unit's efficiency....

Comprehensive Rehabilitation Results From Stege Sanitary District
Seven sewer agencies, including Stege Sanitary District, in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area embarked on a 20-year capital improvement program in 1987. The 300 million construction...

Discharge Measurement by Thermal Dilution
A flume study was conducted to develop and improve the thermal dilution method of discharge measurement in trapezodial channels. The study was performed in an indoor channel with dischages...

Outfall Plume Dilution in Stratified Fluids

Modeling Dilution of Wastewater Outfalls in a Tidal Estuary
Field studies and modeling have been conducted to assess initial dilution of wastewater outfalls in Puget Sound, a fjord-like estuary in the State of Washington. Recent numerical dilution...

The Benefit of Utilizing Case Specific Modelling and Data to Determine Effluent Limitations
This abstract refers to the results of a normal conservative approach to a more realistic, substantiated approach to determining effluent limitations. The new approach was used to establish...

Behavior of Sediment-Laden Plumes on Steep Slopes
The near field behavior of dense, sediment-laden flows on steep slopes was investigated as part of a study of mine tailings disposal. A literature review indicated that field and laboratory...

Effluent Dispersion Measurements Under Sea Ice
Field measurements of the dispersion of effluent from the Seawater Treatment Plant (STP) at Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, were made during April 1985. The primary objective was to determine whether...

Predicting Lake-Chain Quality with Augmentation
Steady-state mass-balance models of lake phosphorus are analyzed with regard to predicting augmentation (or dilution) effects. One form of these models employs a retention coefficient...

Discharge Zone Classification System for Southern Puget Sound
This paper identifies marine areas where new or expanded discharges are unacceptable based on existing knowledge; e. g. , water quality standards are currently not met, and impairment...

Small Canal Discharge Measurement by Thermal Dilution
Thermal dilution is a variation of the indicator dilution flow measurement technique, utilizing heat as the indicator. The measurement is accomplished by performing a heat balance within...

Effect of Voids on Creep Rate and Strength
The classic macroscopic Kachanov-Rabotnov model of material damage due to voids is reviewed. Detailed analyses of bulk mechanical properties of dilutely voided materials with certain,...

Centrifugal Modeling of Phosphatic Clay Consolidation
As a by-product of beneficiation, quantities of dilute clay slurry are produced which are stored in retention ponds. One method of accelerating consolidation is to surcharge the clay with...

Convection-Diffusion Analysis of Sedimentation in Initially Dilute Solids-Suspensions
The settling of suspended solids in solids-suspensions is treated from the viewpoint of the relative fluxes established as a result of the upward diffusion of water and the downward convection...

Evapoconsolidation in Fine-grained Material
The increased difficulty of obtaining land needed for confined disposal of dredged material and phosphatic clays highlights the need to assess alternative disposal measures by accurately...

Unsteady Mixing of a Buoyant Jet into a Reservoir
A buoyant effluent was dyed with fluorescent dye on two occasions to determine its mixing characteristics and flow path through a small hydropower reservoir located in south central Arkansas....

Evaluation of Selected Initial Dilution Models
A number of mathematical and computer models are currently available to calculate initial dilution of treated wastewater effluent discharges into the ocean. This paper presents a comparative...
