  • An Energy Analysis of a Slab Preheating Chamber for a Reheating Furnace

    • Authors: Kitipong Kangvanskol, Chittin Tangthieng
      Abstract: The iron and steel industry is one of the major industries for developing countries, and it is ranked as one of the industrial sectors that has the highest energy consumption. It is also served as a primary industry that provides materials to secondary industries as well. This present study focuses on a slab, a product from a steelmaking process, which will be sent to a hot-rolling mill to form a final product. Before the rolling process, slab is heated to a proper temperature by charging into a reheating furnace. Heat is generated by a combustion process from direct-fired burners. In general, heat loss from the reheating furnace occurs by several mechanisms including the flue gas loss. Although a recuperator is used to reduce heat loss by recovering some of that to preheat the combustion air, the exit flue gas temperature is still as high as 350-450C. This research paper aims for the investigation of the energy efficiency resulted from the implementation of a slab preheating chamber before charging into a reheating furnace. Four different sizes of the preheating chamber are selected as the case studies for the energy analysis. Another consideration includes the acid dew point of the flue gas as the lowest criteria for the flue gas temperature. The result indicates that the flue gas temperatures are above the acid dew point for all four cases under consideration. The slab temperatures increase from the ambient temperature of 30oC to 59.52oC, 75.98oC, 84.98oC and 89.46oC, respectively, before begin charged into the reheating furnace. As a result, the fuel energy consumption after the implementation of the reheating chamber is reduced by 0.94%, 1.46%, 1.75% and 1.89%, respectively comparing to the furnace without the reheating chamber. The reheating furnace efficiency also increases from 69.88% to 70.54%, 70.92%, 71.13% and 71.22%, respectively.

  • Systematic Approach to Arowana Gender Identification Problem using
           Algorithm of Inventive Problem Solving (ARIZ)

    • Authors: Trizit Benjaboonyazit
      Abstract: This paper presents a systematic approach to arowana gender identification problem using algorithm of inventive problem solving (ARIZ). Arowana is a beautiful and expensive fish. Many farms try to improve their efficiency in breeding arowana, but the problem is that arowana is monomorphic, which makes it difficult to distinguish male from female just from their appearance. This causes difficulties in mating and selling of arowana. Many trial-and-error methods have been used with little success. The problem of arowana gender identification cannot be solved easily with the psychological methods such as brainstorming or trial and error, it needs a more logical and well-structured method of problem solving. In this paper, ARIZ is used to systematically analyze the problem and search for possibilities to identify the gender of arowana step by step, and finally, among 32 ideas generated, some potential solutions have been evaluated and compared with the commonly used methods with satisfactory results which demonstrate the effectiveness of ARIZ as a powerful innovative problem solving tool.

  • Synthesis Acetylation of Glycerol Using Batch Reactor and Continuous
           Reactive Distillation Column

    • Authors: Zahrul Mufrodi, Rochmadi Rochmadi, Sutijan Sutijan, Arief Budiman
      Abstract: Biodiesel production from vegetable oil produces glycerol as by-product with the amount of about 10 wt% of its product. This excessive amount of glycerol needs to be converted into the higher valuable product. One of the prospective glycerol’s derivatives is triacetin, a good bio-additive as anti-knocking agent. The synthesis of triacetin from glycerol and acetic acid using sulfuric acid catalyst has been performed in batch and continuous process. In this work, triacetin was synthesized using batch reactor to give 96.30% of glycerol conversion and 20.50% of triacetin selectivity. Meanwhile, the production using continuous reactive distillation resulted in glycerol conversion of 98.51% and 8.84% of triacetin selectivity.

  • Modeling and Experimentation Study of Earth to Air Heat Exchanger

    • Authors: Foued Chabane, Nesrine Hatraf, Abdelhafid Brima, Noureddine Moummi, Abdelhafid Moummi
      Abstract: Geothermal energy uses an air ground exchanger to cool buildings with minimum of energy. The outlet air coming from this exchanger can be directly used for space cooling if its temperature is low enough. In this study we try to evaluate the profile of ground temperature to decide of the depth to bury the exchanger. Through modeling and experimentation, we try to evaluate the performance of a horizontal pipe used for cooling, for this finite differential method which consists on dividing the length of the exchanger on multiple equal segments and by the knowledge of initial and boundary conditions the profile of the air temperature is that carry out. The authors conclude that many parameters influence the performance of earth to air exchanger such as the nature of the ground, the ground depth diameter of the duct and the throughput flow.

  • An Investigation on the Thermal Characteristics of a Single-Effect
           Absorption Chiller Subjected to the Input Steam Fluctuation

    • Authors: Taninrat Vittayakaisin, Chittin Tangthieng
      Abstract: This paper presents an investigation on the thermal characteristics of a single-effect absorption chiller subjected to the input steam fluctuation for an air-conditioning purpose. The absorption chiller driven by waste steam is utilized with the total capacity of 270 tons. The analyzed data are obtained by the field measurement. The results indicate that most measuring parameters appear to be nearly constant with time whereas the chilled water outlet temperature and the cooling water outlet temperature appear to have a similar wave characteristic to the mass flow rate of the input steam. The regression analysis is performed in order to obtain the sine function of these three parameters. The lagging behavior of the cooling load and the rejected heat rate behind the input heat rate from waste steam is observed due to the thermal inertia of the absorption chiller. The energy analysis shows that the average cooling load, rejected heat rate and input heat rate from waste steam is 345.78 kW, 1033.80 kW, 572.88 kW, respectively. The coefficient of performance of the absorption chiller has a high fluctuation from 0.296 to 1.524 with an average value of 0.754, resulted from the fluctuation of the mass flow rate of the input steam. The result indicates that the average value of the residual heat rate is 170.14 kW, which is approximately 10 percent of the total input heat.

  • Oxygen Specific Power Consumption Comparison for Air Separation Units

    • Authors: Yas A. Alsultannty, Nayef N. Al-Shammari
      Abstract: Technologies life cycles became shorter than before as a result of globalization and open market, which derived organizations to update their dated technologies. Without technologies updating, which based on Technological Forecasting (TF), organizations can not be dominant leaders in the open market and eventually they will lose their business. The main objective of this paper was to evaluate the air separation units by calculating the oxygen specific power, to find the most cost effective unit. The oxygen specific power used as a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) for the selected Air Separation Unit (ASU) technologies. The KPI for the updated Air Separation Unit was reviewed and the latest value selected as theoretical benchmark, which was 0.28Kw/Nm3. At the practical part, the data collected to three air separation units ASU-31, ASU-51 and ASU-71. The results showed that the specific power gaps that used as the KPI's of ASU-31, ASU-51 and ASU-71 are 0.464Kw/Nm3, 0.639Kw/Nm3 and 0.631Kw/Nm3 respectively. The results showed that these gaps can be minimized by the recommendation suggested in this paper to reduce power consumption.

  • Simulation Techniques for Determining Numbers of Programmers in the
           Process of Software Testing

    • Authors: Adtha Lawanna
      Abstract: One of the existing problems in the body knowledge of software engineering is inappropriate numbers of programmers working through the software-development life cycle, particularly in the process of coding, testing, and maintenance. If the numbers are large, then the cost of development software will increase. However, the small teams cause another problem, especially in the process of deployment. Therefore, this article presents the simulation techniques for the development team in order to determine the appropriate numbers of programmer, specifically in the process of software testing, including the percent errors that can be occurred during maintenance. Firstly, the relationship among programmers, codes, and testing time are constructed and studied. Secondly, it is the application based simulation techniques for determining the suitable numbers of programmers whereas twenty experiments are organized. Lastly, the percent errors from seeded bugs are generated by 50 experiments. The contribution of this paper is not only managing the whole phases of software-development life cycle, but it also guarantees the accuracy of testing software by improving the percent errors.

  • Application of Vector Control to Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors Using
           Chaos Control

    • Authors: Elham Hezare, Mohammad Ataei, Mehrdad Jafarboland
      Abstract: This paper presents the idea of vector control for permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) based on chaos theorem, using chaos controller. PMSM will demonstrate chaotic phenomena when its parameters fall into a certain area. To achieve this aim, the sub-system of controller has been designed by considering block diagram structure of vector control for PMSM and by applying the setting of Lyapunov exponents method. Also, asymptotical stability of closed loop system with given controller is shown, using the direct Lyapunov method. The performance of designed controller in chaotic mode is compared with conventional vector control methods. Also, the normal mode for PMSM is considered and the performance of controller is compared. Simulation results indicate that not only does this controller eliminate the chaos in chaotic mode and have good performance but also is able to control the system in normal mode by using almost the smaller control signal effort.

  • Green Drying: Continuous Dehumidified-Air Dryer

    • Authors: C. L. Woo, H. S. Yeoh, S. K. Go, Gun Hean Chong
      Abstract: Non-thermal drying, such as dehumidified-air drying has been introduced to overcome the drawbacks of conventional thermal and direct contact adsorption drying. However, existing approach of this method is not so user friendly as the dehumidified-air cannot be supplied continuously due to the depletion of desiccants. The desiccants also need a high temperature for the regeneration. Therefore, a continuous dehumidified-air dryer is focused in this study. The dehumidified-air was produced alternately by adsorbents, which located in two chambers. The adsorbents were then regenerated at ambient temperature by pressure-swing concepts. This continuous dehumidified-dryer was commissioned by drying A. paniculata, at the dehumidified-air 10 to 30 L/min and 30 to 50 C. The sample was dried at less than 10 hours, and about 75 % of andrographolide had been maintained. The Page model was well describing the drying behaviour, and the diffusivity coefficient was determined as 1.88 x 10-13 m2/s.

  • Particle Packing Approach for Designing the Mortar Phase of Self
           Compacting Concrete

    • Authors: Abibasheer Basheerudeen, Sivakumar Anandan
      Abstract: Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a tailored concrete mix, strongly dependent on the constituent proportions and the physical characteristics of the constituents. In order to achieve the self compacting concrete, mortar phase plays a vital role as it contributes to the active suspension phase of aggregates. High powder content and optimum fine aggregate is required for the desired flowability and stability of mortar. Hence, for accomplishing a self compacting concrete, the design of paste and mortar phase needs to be carefully proportioned. A positive correlation exists between the flow properties of the concrete and the packing density of the mix. The packing density of the cementitious materials plays a key role in deciding the final strength of concrete. Improved packing offers the benefit of reduction in water demand, reduced permeability, reduction in bleeding and reduced porosity of the transition zone. The objective of this study is to design the mortar phase for a self compacting concrete reinforced with glass fibres by applying the concept of particle packing. Design of paste and mortar phase was done based on particle packing approach using Puntke test. Initially the powder content (cement and slag) was arrived based on Puntke test and the optimum addition of slag was determined with the slag activity index. The super plasticizer dosage was fixed by performing flow studies using Marsh cone test and the fine aggregate content was established by Puntke Test. The selected powder to fine aggregate content established by particle packing method was taken for mini slump studies and further the optimization of glass fibres content is determined. The outcome of the current study exposed the possibility of obtaining a self compacting mortar incorporating glass fibres which in turn useful for designing the self-compacting concrete.

  • A Study of Competitiveness between Low Cost Airlines and High-Speed-Rail:
           A Case Study of Southern Corridor in Thailand

    • Authors: Piti Chantruthai, Sirirat Taneerananon, Pichai Taneerananon
      Abstract: This paper investigates the competitiveness between Low Cost Airlines (LCA) and High Speed Rail (HSR) on the southern corridor where LCA predominate at present. A study of passengers’ O-D pairs in southern corridor of Thailand was conducted. The O-D surveys were carried out for the 2 sections of the southern corridor: Surat Thani-Bangkok (ST-BKK) and Hat-Yai –Bangkok (HY-BKK). The competitiveness between HSR and LCA and the Willing-To-Pay for the HSR fare were analysed using factors determined by the multinomial logistic regression model and binary logistic regression model, respectively. Competitiveness between HSR and LCA did not depend only on travel time alone but also on factors such as fare difference, users’occupation, household income, education level and trip purposes.The result of the Willingness-To-Pay for the HSR fare showed the fare for O-D pairs between ST-BKK and HY-BKK at 1.8 THB/km (US$ 0.06/km) and 1.5 THB/km (US$ 0.05/km), respectively. The average HSR fare was 1.65 THB/km (US$ 0.055/km). This is in comparison to the fare of HY-BKK 2.45 THB/km (US$ 0.08/km) for a LCA, and an average of 2.65 THB/km (US$ 0.09/km) for another LCA. It is seen that the fare differential of 1 THB/km (US$ 0.03/km) could be significant in making passengers change from LCA to HSR.
