Zirconium Phosphate/Ionic Liquid Proton Conductors for High Temperature Fuel Cell Applications
High temperature operation ( 120 °C) is preferred in proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells. It enhances the electrode kinetics, improves the catalyst tolerance for impurities and allows the use of lower cost fuels ...
Dynamic Spectrum Scheduling and Management in Centralized Cognitive Radio Networks
As the demand for wireless radio spectrum increases, spectrum regulatory authorities expect to face a spectrum scarcity problem.As the demand for wireless radio spectrum increases, spectrum regulatory authorities expect ...
Measurement of Vigilance Using EEG Source Localization
Vigilance, or sustained attention, is crucial for jobs where attentiveness for prolonged times is required. These jobs include air traffic control, luggage inspection, and surveillance jobs. Vigilance decrement can cause ...
Laboratory simulation of irrigation-induced settlement of collapsible desert soils under constant surcharge
The heterogeneous nature of soil as a load bearing material, coupled with varying environmental conditions, pose challenges to geotechnical engineers in their quest to characterize and understand ground behavior for safe ...
Integrated economic and environmental models for a multi stage cold supply chain under carbon tax regulation
The elevated level of public and organizations awareness concerning sustainability has necessitated the adoption of environmentally conscious practices in the management of supply chains. As such, classical inventory models ...
Online Fuzzy Logic Base Algorithm for Electricity Price Prediction
(Journal of Electronic Science and Technology, 2017)
This paper presents a web-based system to predict the electricity prices. The proposed system captures the geographical location, weather forecast, and oil price for one week ahead. The captured parameters are fed to a ...
A Smart Home Energy Management System Using IoT and Big Data Analytics Approach
Increasing cost and demand of energy has led many organizations to find smart ways for monitoring, controlling and saving energy. A smart Energy Management System (EMS) can contribute towards cutting the costs while still ...
Removal of lead ions from wastewater using multi walled carbon nanotubes modified with sodium lauryl sulfate
(Desalination Publications, 2017-12)
Multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) modified with sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) were synthe-sized, characterized and successfully used for the removal of Pb2+ from aqueous solutions. Adsorp-tion results revealed that this ...
