Effective water resources management programs have always incorporated detailed analyses of hydrological and water quality processes in the upland watershed and downstream waterbody. We have integrated two powerful hydrological and water quality models (SWAT and CE-QUAL-W2) to simulate the combined processes of water quantity and quality both in the upland(More)
The water quality of different aquatic ecosystems viz., Effluent discharging and non-discharging sites of Uppanar estuary, Vellar estuary and Pitchavaram mangrove forest in Cuddalore coastal area, Southeast coast of TamilNadu, India were examined using selected physicochemical and microbiological indicators. The physicochemical characteristics such as pH,(More)
Information regarding when and how a fermentation process changes from one phase to the next is very useful to its modelling and hence control and optimization. In this study, we demonstrated that such information could be obtained by applying DPCA to online measurements of the fermentation process. The process under study is fermentation of Rifamycin B in(More)
Taking inspiration from eukaryotic cilia, we report a method for growing dense arrays of magnetically actuated microscopic filaments. Fabricated from the bottom-up assembly of polymer-coated cobalt nanoparticles, each segmented filament measures approximately 5–15 mm in length and 23.5 nm in diameter, which was commensurate with the width of a single(More)
Painting is a cost-effective technique to delay the onset of corrosion in metals. However, the protection is only temporary, as corrosion begins once the coating becomes scratched. Thus, an increasingly common practice is to add microencapsulated chemical agents to paint in order to confer self-healing capabilities. The additive's ability to protect the(More)
athodic protection is an electrochemical technique that minimizes the corrosion of metals in contact with any ionically conducting medium. In this technique, the metal/electrolyte interface is electrically polarized by 2200 mV, and a current is forced through the interface. For an ideal protection, however, the 2200-mV polarization should be achieved(More)
— This paper compares the springback and bend force prediction models based on artificial neural network and response surface methodology. The models were developed based on five level-half factorial central composite rotatable design of experiments conducted on air bending of electrogalvanised steel sheets with strain hardening exponent, coating thickness,(More)
