  • Enhancement or suppression of dehumidification process by surface

    • Abstract: In many engineering applications, either the suppression or the enhancement of dehumidification is desired. If so, the dehydration in air-conditioned space can be solved, less condensation water pollution can be achieved, or the dehumidification process can be more efficient. In this study, the effects of various surface treatments were explored to enhance or suppress the condensation. It wa...

  • Cement production optimization modeling: A case study BUA plant

    • Abstract: This paper deals with cement production optimization modeling using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and the results was compared with Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Pattern Search (PS). This optimization modeling took into account mixtures of primary fuel (mineral coal, pet-coke and heavy oil) and its alternative fuel which is agricultural waste (rice husk, sugar waste and ground shell). The o...

  • Wastewater discharge impact on groundwater quality of Béchar City,
           Southwestern Algeria: Approach by microbiological analysis and health risk
           index evaluation

    • Abstract: This manuscript studies the problem of the wastewater influence on groundwater chemistry, particularly the microbiological quality setting and risk to public health in an urban environment, in an arid climate. The study of the spatial and temporal variation in the chemical and microbiological composition of Bchar city groundwater identifies the impact intensity that directly affects its qual...

  • Hybrid diagnosing techniques for analyzing dissolved gases in power

    • Abstract: Safe operation of elements of power systems plays a crucial role in maintaining the reliability and safety of the system. Transformers being a key element in power systems need to be maintained and monitored on a regular basis. Dissolved gas analysis has been used as a reliable tool in maintaining the safe operation of transformers for a long time. Analysis of dissolved gases is analytical a...

  • Effect of oxygen plasma treatments on the structural and optical
           properties of polyimide films

    • Abstract: A detailed study of some physical properties of Polyimide films after exposing them to oxygen plasma is presented. The structure of the sample has been analyzed by X-ray diffraction technique (XRD) and is found to be semi crystalline. Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) studies revealed that the thermal stability of polyimide films have improved after being exposed to oxygen plasma, at differen...

  • Characterization and determination of catechins in green tea leaves using
           UV-visible spectrometer

    • Abstract: In this paper, characterizations of pure major catechins and method for determination of total catechins in green tea leaves have been reported using UV-visible spectrometer. Most research activities have been focused on chromatographic methods, however spectrophotometirc method is preferred because of its rapidity, high accuracy, and reproducibility. The optical transition properties of Epi...

  • Geothermal Energy

    • Abstract: The term Geothermal originates from two Greek words GEO and THERM. The Greek word geo means the earth whilst their word for therm means heat from the earth. Geothermal energy is energy derived from the heat of the earth. The earths centre is a distance of approximately 4000 miles and is so hot that it is molten. Temperatures are understood to be at least 5000C. Heat from the centre of the ea...

  • Relocation of source of sporadic production using genetic algorithm in
           distribution network

    • Abstract: Today, due to the development of distribution systems and increase of demand and load, the use of the source of scattered production has developed. The establishment of the installation place and the size of the source of scattered production decrease network loss, lead to best action of network as well as the recovery of the voltage profile. In this article, we use the genetic algorithm for...
