Due to the funding scale and complexity of lubricant regenerative technology, the selection of recycling technology and policy for waste lubricant oil can be viewed as a multiple-attribute decision process that is normally made by a review committee with experts from academia, industry, and the government. This study aims to provide a systematic approach(More)
Estimating groundwater recharge is an important issue in hydrogeologic studies. In most cases, recharge is estimated by multiplying the magnitude of water-level fluctuations in wells by the specific yield of the aquifer material or by applying the water budget model or using the water-balance method. While other parts of the water-balance equation, such as(More)
Over the past few decades, enormous effort has been expended on conducting traditional aquifer tests and model calibration for characterizing aquifers. Traditional aquifer tests generally involve pumping at one well and using the observed drawdown data at another well to estimate aquifer hydraulic properties. Analysis of the test is built upon Theis’ or(More)
[1] In this study, a geostatistically based estimator is developed that simultaneously includes all observed transient hydrographs from hydraulic tomography to map aquifer heterogeneity. To analyze tomography data, a data preprocessing procedure (including diagnosing and wavelet denoising analysis) is recommended. A least squares approach is then introduced(More)
In this study, the stable isotope values of oxygen and hydrogen were used to identify the seasonal contribution ratios of precipitation to groundwater recharge in the Hualien River basin of eastern Taiwan. The differences and correlations of isotopes in various water bodies were examined to evaluate the groundwater recharge sources for the Hualian River(More)
Fracture zones and their connectivity in geologic media are of great importance to ground water resources management as well as ground water contamination prevention and remediation. In this paper, we applied a recently developed hydraulic tomography (HT) technique and an analysis algorithm (sequential successive linear estimator) to synthetic fractured(More)
[1] In this opinion paper we contend that high-resolution characterization, monitoring, and prediction are the key elements to advancing and reducing uncertainty in our understanding and prediction of subsurface processes at basin scales. First, we advocate that recently developed tomographic surveying is an effective and high-resolution approach for(More)
In this study, the use of crumb tyres as additives to concrete was investigated. For some time, researchers have been studying the physical properties of concrete to determine why the inclusion of rubber particles causes the concrete to degrade. Several methods have been developed to improve the bonding between rubber particles and cement hydration products(More)
Streamflow is an important factor in the study of water resource management, floods, and droughts. Dramatic climate change has created extreme rainfall distributions, making the study of streamflow trends and variability even more crucial. In this study, the long-term streamflow data and trends recorded at gauging stations in Northern Taiwan are analyzed(More)
A water budget model is proposed to estimate the infiltration, runoff, evapotranspiration and recharge in vadose zone and apply to a case study. The instantaneous redistribution of infiltrated water is assumed to be uniform and a linear relationship between evapotranspiration and effective saturation is imposed. Infiltration is described by Philip’s(More)
