  1. 1. Environmental Modelling : Learning from Uncertainty

    Author : John M. Juston; Per-Erik Jansson; Jens Christian Refsgaard; John Juston; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Models; data; error; uncertainty; hydrology; soil carbon; wetlands; phosphorus;

    Abstract : Environmental models are important tools; however uncertainty is pervasive in the modeling process.   Current research has shown that under­standing and representing these uncertainties is critical when decisions are expected to be made from the modeling results. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis and Modelling of Desalination Brines

    Author : Raed Bashitialshaaer; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Modelling.; Field data analysis; Negatively buoyant jet; Experiment; Brine discharge; Desalination; Water supply;

    Abstract : Seawater desalination constitutes an important water supply to the population bordering the Arabian Gulf, the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. The three regions represent about 11.8% of the world land area and the countrieshosted approximately 9% of the world population in 1950 and 2008 and are also projected to do so in 2050. READ MORE

  3. 3. Long-term metal retention processes in a peat bog : Field studies, data and modelling

    Author : Kristina Syrovetnik; Ivars Neretnieks; Bert Allard; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Peat; heavy metals distribution; sequential extraction; binding mechanisms; modelling; metal sulphide oxidation; aqueous composition; sorption; humic substances; ferric oxyhydroxide; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The study was inspired by the need to assess long-term metal retention in municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. The long-term processes in landfills are poorly known due to the relatively short time that such landfills have been in existence. Natural analogues where similar metal binding processes could be expected were therefore sought for. READ MORE

  4. 4. Disinformative and Uncertain Data in Global Hydrology : Challenges for Modelling and Regionalisation

    Author : Anna Kauffeldt; Sven Halldin; Allan Rodhe; Chong-Yu Xu; András Bárdossy; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Data uncertainty; Discharge; Disinformative data; Evaporation; Flow-duration curve; Global hydrology; Neural networks; Numerical weather prediction; Precipitation; Quality control; Regionalisation; Ungauged basins; Water balance; Avdunstning; avrinningsområden utan vattenföringsdata; dataosäkerhet; desinformativa data; global hydrologi; kvalitetskontroll; nederbörd; neurala nät; numerisk vädermodell; regionalisering; varaktighetskurva; vattenbalans; vattenföring; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Water is essential for human well-being and healthy ecosystems, but population growth and changes in climate and land-use are putting increased stress on water resources in many regions. To ensure water security, knowledge about the spatiotemporal distribution of these resources is of great importance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling of Electric Arc Welding : arc-electrode coupling

    Author : Alireza Javidi Shirvan; Isabelle Choquet; Håkan Nilsson; Alexei Heintz; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electric welding; arc welding simulation; electrode; plasma; cathode layer; sheath; arc discharge; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Arc welding still requires deeper process understanding and more accurateprediction of the heat transferred to the base metal. This can be provided by CFD modelling.Most works done to model arc discharge using CFD consider the arc corealone. READ MORE
