Typically, leakage is the result of faulty connections from poor welding or stressed joints. Tube vibrations can cause the most significant damage to heat exchanger. This can be the result of very high velocity axial and perpendicular flow applications. In addition to resolving common heat exchanger problems the end goal is to improve the

USING A NON-PARAMETRIC TECHNIQUE TO EVALUATE THE EFFICIENCY OF A LOGISTICS COMPANY

Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a relatively new method, a nonparametric technique used nowadays to evaluate the efficiency of the Decision-Making Units. Using this method, the Decision-Making Units can be compared between each other and the most effective ones can be found. Using the DEA method, the performance of a logistic company with twelve warehouses as DMUs is evaluated in this paper. "DEA Excel Solver" user program was used to solve the problem.

ELECTROCHEMICAL CYCLE FOR THE CONVERSION OF THE WASTE HEAT INTO ELECTRICAL ENERGY: THE POSSIBILITY OF USING IN WATER TRANSPORT

We developed a concept and calculated an efficiency of the electrochemical cycle of converting low-grade heat (temperature difference 10-80°C) into electricity. The cycle could be divided into two stages: creating a concentration difference by a solution distilled in a temperature gradient and electricity generation in concentration galvanic cell. The calculation shows that the efficiency of converting heat into electricity could reach 40-55% of Carnot efficiency in a temperature range of 0-100

Fixed-power wireless sensor networks are prevalent and cost-effective. However, they face mote failures, RF interference from environmental noise and energy constraints. Routing protocols for such networks must overcome these problems to achieve reliability, energy efficiency and scalability in message delivery. Achievement of these requirements, however, poses conflicting demands. In this work, we propose an efficient and reliable routing protocol (EAR) that achieves reliable and scalable

A review of restorative justice responses to offending

The present review sought to determine on the available evidence (a) whether restorative justice (RJ) is an effective means of reducing re-offending (b) what benefits victims of crime obtain from participation in the RJ process (c) whether the public supports the principles of RJ and (d) how the cost and efficiency of RJ proceedings compare with conventional courts in cost and efficiency (i.e. time taken to finalize cases). The review finds little reliable evidence that RJ reduces re-offending

Fluorine is a common chemical element. According to WHO guidelines, the F- ion content in drinking water cannot be higher than 1.5 mg/dm3. Excess of fluorine leads to many health problems: Alzheimer’s disease, neurological disorders or fluorosis (dental or skeletal). Fluoride can be removed from aqueous solutions by means of various methods (adsorption, precipitation, ion-exchange or membrane techniques). The aim of this paper was to evaluate the efficiency of electrodialysis in fluoride
