Sulfate anions represent very important wastewater pollutants, which appear in the effluents discharged from copper mines. In this study, for the first time, an attempt has been made on the removal of sulfate anions by an ion exchange resin. This work is focused on the removal of sulfate anions from the Sarcheshmeh copper complex (Kerman province, Southeast(More)
In this study a new approach based on artificial neural networks (ANNs) has been used to predict pressure drop in venturi scrubbers. The main parameters affecting the pressure drop are mainly the gas velocity in the throat of venturi scrubber (V(g)(th)), liquid to gas flow rate ratio (L/G), and axial distance of the venturi scrubber (z). Three sets of(More)
Refocused insensitive nucleus enhancement by polarization transfer (RINEPT) from protons (1H) to a J-coupled phosphorus (31P) has been incorporated into three-dimensional (3D) chemical-shift-imaging (CSI) sequence on a clinical imager. The technique is demonstrated on a phantom and in in vivo human brain. The polarization-transfer efficiency (approximately(More)
Conjugated polymers with alternating electronwithdrawing and electron-donating groups along their backbone (donor−acceptor copolymers) have recently attracted attention due to high power conversion efficiency in bulk heterojunction solar cells. In an effort to understand how the bandgap in a typical donor−acceptor copolymer is reduced by internal charge(More)
A three-dimensional Eulerian-Lagrangian fluid dynamics (CFD) model was developed to simulate the gas particulate flow inside cyclones with different sizes. Cyclones of different sizes, were used which named as cyclones I, II, and III. Cyclone I was considered as the biggest and cyclone III was considered as the smallest cyclone. The effects of cyclone size(More)
High mobility ambipolor organic thin-film transistors based on an ultralow bandgap polymer are presented together with their morphological and optical properties. Hole and electron mobilities of this polymer are of 1.0 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1) and 0.7 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1), respectively. The inverter based on two identical ambipolar transistors exhibits a gain around(More)
In this paper, the problem of coarse timing synchronization in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems is investigated, and two new timing metrics with better performance are presented. The new metrics take advantage of two novel differential normalization functions that are based on the fourth-order statistics and are designed depending(More)
In this study, a new approach for the auto-design of neural networks, based on a genetic algorithm (GA), has been used to predict collection efficiency in venturi scrubbers. The experimental input data, including particle diameter, throat gas velocity, liquid to gas flow rate ratio, throat hydraulic diameter, pressure drop across the venturi scrubber and(More)
In this study to identify the origin of PM10 in the atmosphere of Kerman and investigate the dispersion conditions for these particles, the variations of the mass concentration and size distribution of PM10 have been measured. This study is focused on the local environmental impact of Kerman Cement Plant. All samples have been taken in the area between the(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Sinusitis is an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses that can be caused by anatomic variations of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. In this study we aimed to find the relationship between sinusitis and septal deviation (SeD) and concha bullosa. METHODS Two trained resident of ENT evaluated sinus CT scans of 463 cases(More)
