Predicting geotechnical parameters of fine-grained dredged materials of the gulf of Izmit (NW Turkey) using the slump test method and index property correlations

In this study, an attempt has been done to figure out the geotechnical properties of physically remolded dredged materials of the Gulf of Izmit located in NW Turkey, by using slump test method. For this aim, slum tests were conducted on dredged material specimens using open-ended polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cylinders of 10 cm diameter and height. Water content of the dredged material specimens was obtained in the...

Theoretical and experimental studies for wool wax recovery by flotation

Theoretical and experimental studies have been performed to analyze the flotation processes for recovery of wool wax from an industrial effluent by air flotation. Batch flotation process was carried out at different experimental conditions and different air flow rates. The results obtained show that wool wax can be successfully recovered from the tested effluent using batch air flotation. The percentage of wax recovery...

Optimal lead-lag controller designing for reduction of load current total harmonic disturtion and hanmonic with voltage control using honey bee mating optimization (HBMO)

Increase in world demand load has resulted in new distributed generation (DG) that has entered into the power system. One of the most renewable energies is fuel cell, which is connected to power system using a power electronics interface in microgrid or standalone condition. The highest problem of this switching interface based DGs is the power quality (PQ) and harmonics of currents. Also, the voltage of the DGs should...
