Figure 1: Our work provides a design tool to realize the desired bending elasticity of a generalized cylindrical model by changing the shell thickness (blue=thin, red=thick). Given the shape of the model's rotational symmetry axis under bending, we use a data-driven method to compute a non-uniformly hollowed shape to realize the desired deformation(More)
Effective dehalogenation by nanoscale zerovalent iron (nZVI) has been reported. In this study, the effects of Ni(2+), Cu(2+) ions, and the nonionic surfactant Tween-80 on dechlorination of 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorinated biphenyl (PCB-52) by nZVI were investigated in aqueous solution. The rate of dechlorination was significantly enhanced by Ni(2+), while Cu(2+)(More)
The UV/chlorine process, which forms several reactive species including hydroxyl radicals (HO) and reactive chlorine species (RCS) to degrade contaminants, is being considered to be an advanced oxidation process. This study investigated the kinetics and mechanism of the degradation of trimethoprim (TMP) by the UV/chlorine process. The degradation of TMP was(More)
