Municipal solid waste (MSW) is an unavoidable by-product of human activities. The generation of MSW tends to increase with the growing population and the economic development of the society. Landfilling is one of the most common disposal methods for MSW in the world. However, there are numerous disadvantages of landfills including the potential to create air, soil and water pollution. Also, many valuable resources are wasted when waste is landfilled. Furthermore, many countries have established rules to lim...
Investigation of combustion characteristics of biomass and coal mixtures in a circulating fluidized bed combustor
Varol, Murat; Atımtay, Ayse; Department of Environmental Engineering (2013)
In this study, combustion and co-combustion tests of Bursa/Orhaneli lignite with two biomass fuels (olive cake and woodchips) were carried out in a laboratory scale Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) combustor, 6 m high and 108 mm inside diameter, in order to investigate the effect of excess air ratio (l), secondary air ratio (SAR) and location of secondary air injection along the combustor wall on the emissions. Optimum l and SAR was determined for each test. The flue gas emissions were compared with limits i...
Investigation of water hammer problems and potential solutions in pump discharge lines

Disturbance in boundary conditions of a hydraulic system could cause rapid change in flow velocity in confined pipe systems. Pressure wave leading to an event called water hammer may occur as a consequence of that disturbance. Water hammer could lead to catastrophic failures on the hydraulic systems. Thus, proper protection measures should be defined and installed in the system before it is put into operation. The aim of this study is to analyze a pumped discharge line and ensure its safe operation against ...

Investigation of Porosity and Permeability Impairment in Sandstones by X-ray Analysis and Simulation
Iscan, A. G.; Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Civan, F. (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Both porosity and permeability constitute the major parameters in core analysis. In this study, the variation of these two parameters along a sandstone core sample was investigated during formation damage. A water-based drilling fluid was dynamically circulated through the core sample for three different time intervals of 15 min, 45 min, and 60 min at 100 psi circulation pressure. The core sample was analyzed using x-ray digital radiography by sectional image approach. The differences in the porous media du...
