Controlling Sulfide Corrosion in Large Diameter Gravity Sewers (abstract)
The County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County undertook a major evaluation of sewer system ranging in size from 1. 22 to 3. 65 meters in diameter that transports peak wastewater...

Technology Assessment for Hydrogen from Renewable Energy
This paper is a preliminary report on an assessment of technologies for hydrogen production from renewable resources, and an investigation of the problems and issues involved in assimilating...

Hydrogen Energy for Residential/Commercial Sector
Hydrogen is being considered as a synthetic fuel or energy carrier for the post fossil fuel era. It has many properties to commend itself: It compliments the non-conventional primary energy...

Energy Systems for the 21st Century
The papers in this book review problems and possibilities of emerging energy technology for the future. One paper discusses the world energy outlook and the political and economic barriers...

Maximum-Slew-Rate Nonlinear Control for Improved Transient Response in Hydrogenerators
This paper considers a linearized model for fixed blade turbines. This paper demonstrates that constant gate speed bang-bang control holds potential advantages over current control techniques....

Impacts of Indexed Sequential Hydrological Modeling on Hydrogeneration Capacity Estimation
Indexed sequential modeling (ISM) has been proposed by the Western Area Power Administration as an alternative approach to developing firm marketable capacity (i. e. , project dependable...

The Effect of Low Level Alkalinity on Nitrification Rate

Hydrogen Cycle Peak Power at Low-Head Sites
A major draw back to further development of low-head hydro power is that it usually uses run-of-the-river operations. The storage potential for peaking power production that large reservoirs...

Effect of Pore Fluid on Soil Cracking Mechanisms

Rate Process Parameters for Erosion and Shear

Biomass as Alternative Energy Source
The potential for biomass utilization as a source of fuel, petrochemicals and petroleum-sparing substances is reviewed. The choices for cultivating biomass, utilizing it directly as an...

Evaluation of Hydrogen-Controlled Permit Criteria for Waste Stabilization Ponds

Rejuvenation of Failed Soil Absorption Systems
The use of hydrogen peroxide as an oxidizing agent was shown to be effective for rejuvenating wastewater soil absorption systems which have failed due to crust or organic mat buildup....

Equalization-Neutralization Basin Design
A methodology has been developed for the design of equalization-neutralization basins for pH control. The trade-off between basin size and quantities of chemical addition can be investigated....

Solar, Geothermal, Hydrogen, and Hydraulic Power
Mankind faces a world-wide power dilemma. A comprehensive energy policy must be adopted here and abroad to solve this dilemma. Certain features of such a policy are considered including...

Aquatic Macrophytes in White Lake, Michigan
Samples of plants were analyzed for carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. The findings reveal that the areal extent of the macrophytes approaches one-fifth of the lake...

Converting Solar Energy to Hydrogen: Answer to U.S.'s Long-Range Energy Needs—
Sunshine is an abundant, inexhaustible, non-polluting energy source; it is free; and no foreign country can control it. The problem arises in harnessing, storing and transporting the power...

Use of Crushed Limestone to Neutralize Acid Wastes
To provide for the rational design of limestone neutralization processes, the kinetics of the chemical reactions involved were evaluated by experiment, and an analysis made of the chemical...

Factors Affecting Environmental Performance of High-Strength Bolts
Hydrogen-stress cracking and stress-corrosion cracking are two mechanisms which have been responsible for many premature failures in high-strength-steel structural members. Both the strength...
