Enhancement of Municipal Wastewater Biosolids Drying through Interfacial Energy Modifying Amendments to Promote Uniform Agglomeration - Bench Scale Testing

Stine, Sarah G 13 December 2018 (has links)
Biosolids Drying is the process of producing a fertilizer product for beneficial reuse from solids produced during municipal wastewater treatment. The drying of biosolids involves the evaporation of water to stabilize the material and produce a product for beneficial use. Thermal energy needs to be transferred to the biosolids to evaporate the water and heat the solids. Energy can be provided by combustion of fuels, re-use of waste heat or solar radiation (WEF, 2014). The most common technology for biosolids drying in the United States utilizes rotary drum dryers. In these systems, fines and crushed oversized pellets produced during the drying system are mixed with dewatered biosolids upstream of the dryer to create a 55% - 65% dry biosolid in the form of pellets. Reducing the percentage of fines generated during the drying process can potentially reduce the amount of energy required for drying. In earlier research completed by Zhang (2018) it was shown that energy modifying amendments, specifically cationic polyelectrolytes, can reduce the zeta potential of biosolids in solution and possibly promote aggregation of the fines. One of the tested amendments, polydiallyldimethylammonium chloride (PDADMAC), was also shown to increase the particle size of the biosolids in solution. In this work, a bench scale drying system was designed and developed to apply the polyelectrolyte amendments to biosolids during the mixing phase, and to gauge the impact on the pellet size distribution and the percentage of fines generated after drying. It was shown that PDADMAC, which is a high charge density cationic polyelectrolyte, had a measurable, though inconsistent, impact on pellet size when applied during the mixing phase. This work also highlights the varying characteristics of biosolids and the recycled biosolids produced during the drying process. Both PDADMAC, and polyallyamine, another cationic polyelectrolyte, when applied to biosolids during the mixing phase limited the increase in fines production as the mixing time was increased prior to drying.

Interaction of temperature, dissolved oxygen and feed energy on ecophysiological performance of juvenile red drum

Fontaine, Lance Pierre 10 October 2008 (has links)
The red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) is important for recreational fishing and aquacultural production in Texas' coastal waters and elsewhere in the nearshore Gulf of Mexico and in subtemperate to subtropical areas of the western North Atlantic Ocean. I performed indoor-tank and outdoor-pond experiments, in conjunction with automa ted respirometry and ecophysiological modeling, to assess interacting effects of temperature, dissolved-oxygen concentration (DO) and feed energy density on survival, growth, metabolism, and other measures of juvenile red drum performance. The main objective was to test an energy/metabolism tradeoff hypothesis, which states that growth of fish exposed to high temperatures can be limited by available feed energy; whereas, growth of fish exposed to lower temperatures can be limited by their metabolic capacity to exploit available feed energy. Also, I examined the influence of DO on this relationship and evaluated the effects of cyclical regimes of temperature and DO on fish performance. Insights from laboratory-based feeding trials were incorporated in experiments conducted in hatchery ponds to assess effects of oxygen supplementation and dietary additives - nucleotides and prebiotics - on performance in a more natural setting. In examining these issues, various technologies were developed. These included a computer-based apparatus for autonomously inducing cyclical regimes of temperature and DO in experimental tanks over an extended period of time. Additionally, I developed a soft feed with low energy-density to simulate natural forage. Experimental results supported the principal research hypothesis: At high temperature and DO, ecophysiological performance of juvenile red drum was enhanced by feeding to satiation with a high-energy feed (15.9 kJ/g) versus with a foragesimulating feed having lower energy density (4.1 kJ/g). Cyclical regimes of temperature and DO - as imposed in my particular laboratory experiments -did not impart growth benefits; however, the potential for enhanced growth via an appropriate cyclical environmental regime remains intact. Results from outdoor-pond experiments were consistent with laboratory results; however, the strong positive effect of feed energy density overwhelmed potential effects of dietary additives or oxygen supplementation on growth.

Important works for drum set as a multiple percussion instrument

Nichols, Kevin Arthur 01 May 2012 (has links)
The drum set is an evolving instrument and performance concept that for much of its existence has been relegated to a supporting role for an ensemble or soloist in varied mediums, rather than being used, as is well suited for, in a soloistic capacity. Drum set had rather humble beginnings and was often a collection of percussion instruments used only for time-keeping and adding color to the music. However, over time, a considerable amount of solo literature has been composed for drum set and there now exists a substantial repertoire for the varied forms of the instrument. Support for the literature and art form has come from numerous well known composers ranging from John Cage to Stuart Saunders Smith and Frank Zappa. Unfortunately, resistance to performing these solo works comes from a broad-based teaching philosophy that emphasizes teaching rudimental, time-keeping, and stylistic performance practices. In this particular paradigm, soloing is important strictly as improvisation grounded in a thorough understanding of the development of the language of Jazz, rather than as a performance concept. Although this repertoire does include works that address these pedagogical concerns, it also includes some works that present the drum set in more virtuosic solo setting. These compositions offer the performer musical opportunities much like those found in solo works for snare drum, keyboard percussion, timpani, and multiple percussion. While a performer may face an initial challenge in finding quality existing works, he or she can then develop synergy between the interpretive skills developed for orchestral style percussion In this study, the author will examine the body of literature composed for unaccompanied solo drum set. Specific compositions will be identified for their significance in promoting personal growth as a drum set artist. In support of this goal, analysis of the performance practice used in these particular works will be developed. To aid in better organizing the body of literature, the author will categorize
