Measurement of Wind Flow Behavior at the Leeward Side of Porous Fences Using Ultrasonic Anemometer Device
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-01)
Efficiency of wind fences is evaluated by the reduction of wind velocity and the effective shelter area behind the fence. Fence porosity is the most influential structural parameters in the porous fence design, and has significant impact on the structure of wind velocity and turbulence leeward. In this work, three fences with porosity of 23%, 35% and 45% have been tested under 10m/s inlet velocity ...
Biogas from Organic Waste - A Case Study
(Peer reviewed, 2016-07-01)
This paper presents a case study to investigate the potential for upgrade of a bio-waste treatment plant. The paper also discusses development potentials in order to optimize the plant for maximum energy and environmental benefits. Data gathered over two consecutive years about the production of biogas, energy and bio-rest were considered and mass balance analysis of inputs and outputs of the ...
Thaw Penetration in Frozen Ground Subjected to Hydronic Heating
(Peer reviewed, 2016-09-22)
To facilitate excavation and foundation work in seasonally freezing or permafrost regions, the frozen soil must be thawed, either by natural (solar) thawing, or by artificial thawing where an auxiliary heat source is utilized to accelerate the process. In this paper, the process of rapid thawing of frozen ground subject to hydronic heating is studied. In particular, the performance characteristics ...
