A comparison of leakage rate and leachate removal rate for the design of lined containment systems

The design of lining systems for the containment of liquids, for example to contain the leachate generated within a landfill, has become rather sophisticated, employing state-of-the-art technologies from such disparate disciplines such as geotechnical engineering and polymer science. The objective, and to a confident degree, the achievement, has been the prevention of contamination of groundwater and in particular surface waters that support humans and animals alike. The technology involving the design of these containment systems has progressed to a point that the integrity of containment can be relied on over the long term. Double lined systems provide an additional benefit of enabling the quantification of the performance of the lining system by the detection of leakage through the upper liner. The difficulty, however, lies with the qualitative evaluation of the system how much leakage is a little? a lot? too much? This paper addresses this issue and discusses reasons for using Leakage Ratio, a ratio between leachate collection rate and leachate leakage rate, in landfill lining system design.

Investigation of the effects of equal channel angular extrusion on light weight alloys
Karpuz, Pınar; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Karaman, İbrahim; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
Severe plastic deformation methods are of great interest in industrial forming applications, as they give rise to significant refinement in microstructures and improvements in mechanical and physical properties. In the “Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE)”, which is the most common method for production of ultrafine grained bulk samples, very high plastic strains are introduced into the bulk material without any change in cross section. This study is composed of two main parts. Part I focuses on the plas...
Kinetic approach for the purification of nucleotides with magnetic separation
Tural, Servet; Tural, Bilsen; Ece, Mehmet Sakir; Yetkin, Evren; Özkan, Necati (2014-11-01)
The isolation of beta-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is of great importance since it is widely used in different scientific and technologic fields such as biofuel cells, sensor technology, and hydrogen production. In order to isolate beta-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, first 3-aminophenyboronic acid functionalized magnetic nanoparticles were prepared to serve as a magnetic solid support and subsequently they were used for reversible adsorption/desorption of beta-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in a...

Mathematical modelling and simulation of a styrene plant was made for the synthesis of a regulatory control structure for the purpose of replacing the existing one. The structural model was constructed considering the differential and algebraic relations describing the process. Utilizing the structural model, alternative feasible control structures were determined by integer linear programming (ILP) techniques developed in this study. The ILP formulations developed were proved to be very efficient in genera...
An experimental study on the burning rates of interacting fires in tunnels
SHAFEE, SINA; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet (2018-03-01)
Multiple fires may occur in close proximity in process industries, power generation and fuel storage facilities and confinement conditions such as tunnels, which can lead to a considerable alteration in fire characteristics and safety design. The topic is of significant importance to the fire safety research because there is little work in the literature that investigates the case of interacting fires, which have a destructive potential. In this work, we study the effects of an adjacent fire source on the b...
On the estimation of kinetic parameters of organic matters using linearization methods
Uraz, Irtek; Akın, Serhat; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-01)
Kinetic parameters obtained by various thermal analysis methods are widely used in petroleum and other industries. These methods are restricted to relatively simple models that consist of a single equation and have usually uneven sensitivity on the uncertainty of the experimental data due to logarithmic conversions. An important consideration affecting the success of the linearization methods is that the proper selection of the beginning and the end of the linear section. A new method was implemented in adv...
