Comparison of Energy Efficiencies for Advanced Anaerobic Digestion, Incineration, and Gasification Processes in Municipal Sludge Management
Municipal sludge has energy content in the range of (9,000-23,000 kJ/kg) depending upon the organic content. This entrapped energy can be transformed into heat and electrical energies by different technologies combining biological and thermal processes. Recently, the combination of advanced digestion and incineration or gasification was found to be advantageous for energy recovery. The energy balance was based upon a full-scale wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) using conventional and advanced treatment conf...
Comparison of thermal sterilization and high hydrostatic pressure-HHP on furan formation, microbial and nutritional quality in commercial baby foods
Kültür, Gülçin; Alpas, Hami; Department of Food Engineering (2013)
Furan, which is a lipophilic contaminant and formed during heating process in foods, has been pointed out as a danger in baby foods since it has been classified as “possibly carcinogenic to human” by IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer). Hence, a great concern has been addressed to the analysis of this substance in baby foods. This study aims to prove that sterilization of baby foods is possible by high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) without allowing the formation of furan. Firstly, HHP treatments...
Comparison of the resource allocation cababilities of project management software packages in resource constrained project scheduling problems
Hekimoğlu, Özge; Serpil, Canan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
In this study, results of a comparison on benchmark test problems are presented to investigate the performance of Primavera V.4.1 with its two resource allocation priority rules and MS Project 2003. Resource allocation capabilities of the packages are measured in terms of deviation from the upper bound of the minimum makespan. Resource constrained project scheduling problem instances are taken from PSPLIB which are generated under a factorial design from ProGen. Statistical tests are applied to the results ...
Comparison of engine performance and emissions for conventional petroleum diesel fuel and diesel-ethanol blends
Erkal, Gül; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
Ethanol is an environmental friendly alternative diesel fuel that has received significant attention both as a possible renewable alternative fuel and as an additive to existing petroleum-based fuels. Beyond simply representing an additional fuel supply, ethanol exhibits several advantages when compared to existing petroleum fuel. The objective of this work is to investigate experimentally the effects of using different blends of specified percentages of ethanol on the engine performance and emissions and t...
