Looking Beyond Energy Efficiency: An Applied Review of Water Desalination Technologies and an Introduction to Capillary-Driven Desalination
Most notable emerging water desalination technologies and related publications, as examined by the authors, investigate opportunities to increase energy efficiency of the process. In this paper, the authors reason that ...
Determination of the maximum allowable gas pressure for an underground gas storage salt cavern - A case study of Jintan, China
(Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, 2019)
Increasing the allowable gas pressure of underground gas storage (UGS) is one of the most effective methods to increase its working gas capacity. In this context, hydraulic fracturing tests are implemented on the target ...
Quantifying the thermal damping effect in underground vertical shafts using the nonlinear autoregressive with external input (NARX) algorithm
(International Journal of Mining Science and Technology, 2019)
As air descends the intake shaft, its infrastructure, lining and the strata will emit heat during the night when the intake air is cool and, on the contrary, will absorb heat during the day when the temperature of the air ...
Characterization of Southern Illinois Water Treatment Residues for Sustainable Applications
Although they are abundantly available, the specific applicability of water treatment residues (WTRs) is dictated largely by the favorability of physicochemical characteristic properties and mineralogical composition. We ...
A Method to Protect Mine Workers in Hot and Humid Environments
Nevertheless, no known or universally accepted model for comprehensively assessing the thermal work condition of the underground mine environment is currently available. Current literature presents several methods and ...
Challenges in Selecting an Appropriate Heat Stress Index to Protect Workers in Hot and Humid Underground Mines
A detailed evaluation of the underground mine climate requires extensive measurements to be performed coupled to climatic modeling work. This can be labor-intensive and time-consuming, and consequently impractical for daily ...
