Injection molding a ceramic suspension gel (CeraSGel) at room temperature is proposed to develop a novel, low-cost and energy efficient processing method capable of forming ceramic parts with...
Treatment of Greywater with Biofilters Packed with Shredded-tires and Membrane Bioreactors
12 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Meng Hu
With the increasing urgent water crisis, water reuse has been receiving more attention. Among several processes that can be used for greywater treatment, membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology...
Finite Element Approach for Interaction of Highly Nonlinear Acoustic Waves with Linear Elastic Media
12 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Devvrath Khatri
In this work, we developed a threedimensional
finite element model (FEM) to study the
interaction of highly nonlinear acoustic wave with
adjacent linear elastic media. We compare...
