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 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)
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)
A mathematical model based on Eulerian/Lagrangian method has been developed to predict particle collection efficiency from a gas stream in an orifice scrubber. This model takes into account Eulerian approach for particle dispersion, Lagrangian approach for droplet movement and particle-source-in-cell (PSI-CELL) model for calculating droplet concentration(More)
In this pilot study, a novel and minimalistic Brain Computer Interface (BCI) based wheelchair control application was developed. The system was based on pseudorandom code modulated Visual Evoked Potentials (c-VEPs). The visual stimuli in the scheme were generated based on the Gold code, and the VEPs were recognized and classified using subject-specific(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)
A three dimensional diffusion model has been developed for computing the concentration of PM10 from Kerman Cement Plant, Iran. This model incorporates source-related factors, meteorological factors, surface roughness, and settling particles to estimate pollutant concentration from continuous sources. The study focused on the local environmental impact of(More)
In this study, a c-VEP based BCI system was developed to run on three distinctive pseudorandom sequences, namely the m-code, the Gold-code, and the Barker-code. The Visual Evoked Potentials (VEPs) were provoked using these codes. In the online session, subjects controlled a LEGO® Mindstorms® robot around a fixed track. Choosing the optimal code proved a(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)
