Abstract:The present invention provides a new water purification method and system using reverse osmosis. In particular, the present invention provides methods and water purification systems using an ion exchange resin and absorbent media for pretreatment of water being fed to a reverse osmosis treatment system, where the pretreatment reduces fouling of, or deposits or chemical attack on the membrane surfaces and passageways. Particularly, a macroporous resin having an average pore diameter in the range of 1,000 to 500,000 Angstroms and a crush strength or Chatillon value of at least 24 g/bead (710[mu]m bead diameter) is used. - Description: <invent…

No man is an island, as individuals interact and influence one another daily in our society. When social influence takes place in experiments on a population of interconnected individuals, the treatment on a unit may affect the outcomes of other units, a phenomenon known as interference. This thesis develops a causal framework and inference methodology for experiments where interference takes place on a network of influence (i.e. network interference). In this framework, the network potential outcomes serve as the key quantity and flexible building blocks for causal estimands that represent a variety of primary, peer, and total treatment effects.

The solution is based on the graph that models the coordination among the robots being a spanning tree. Our decentralized control law ensures, in the least squares sense, that the robots globally acquire a given planar formation while the formation as a whole globally tracks a desired trajectory. The control law is first designed at the kinematic level and then extended to the dynamic level. In the latter, we consider that parametric uncertainty exists in the equations of motion. These uncertainties are account…

Here, we review the very first steps of meiosis in females, when the maternal and patern…

However the traditional MPPI framework assumes the actual environment similar to the training dataset for the deep neural network which is impractical in practice with different maneuvering of target, other perturbations and actuator failures. To address this problem, our method utilize meta-learning technique to make the deep neural dynamics model adap…

Controlling crystalline material defects is crucial, as they affect properties of the material that may be detrimental or beneficial for the final performance of a device. Defect analysis on the sub-nanometer scale is enabled by high-resolution (scanning) transmission electron microscopy [HR(S)TEM], where the identification of defects is currently carried out based on human expertise. However, the process is tedious, highly time consuming and, in some cases, yields ambiguous results. Here we propose a semi-supervised machine learning method that assists in the detection of lattice defects from atomic resolution microscope images. It involves a convolutional…

UO$_{2}$ and UO$_{2.07}$ were characterized from 25-1000$\,^{\circ}\mathrm{C}$ using neutron total scattering in order to evaluate effects of temperature and phase boundaries on local and average structures. Analyses of unit cell parameters showed that both materials exhibit very similar thermal expansion behavior and thermal expansion data lay along the upper bound of uncertainty for standard empirical models, indicating a slightly faster thermal expansion rate. Atomic displacement parameters of UO$_{2.07}$ showed evidence for U$_{4}$O$_{9}$ phase boundaries in accordance with the established phase diagram, despite the suppression of U$_{4}$O$_{9}$ superla…

Abstract:A method or process for treating wastewater containing high organics, silica, boron, hardness, and suspended and dissolved solids. The method includes degasifying the wastewater for the removal of dissolved gases and thereafter chemically softening the wastewater. After the chemical softening step, the wastewater is directed through a media filter or membrane which removes additional solids and precipitants. Thereafter the wastewater is directed through a sodium ion exchange that further softens the wastewater. The effluent from the ion exchange is directed through a cartridge filter and the effluent from the cartridge filter is directed through on…

Based on the relativistic calculations of the nuclear masses in the transfermium region from No $(Z=102)$ to Ds $(Z=110)$ by the deformed relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov theory in continuum, the possible existence of the bound nuclei beyond the neutron drip lines is studied. The two-neutron and multi-neutron emission bound nuclei beyond the primary neutron drip line of $N=258$ are predicted in $Z=106,108$ and $110$ isotopes. Detailed microscopic mechanism investigation reveals that nuclear deformation plays a vital role in the existence of the bound nuclei beyond the drip line. Furthermore, not only the quadrupole deformation $\beta_{2}$, but also the highe…

Inertial sensors stimulate very large interest, not only for their application but also for fundamental physics tests. Ring laser gyros, which measure angular rotation rate, are certainly among the most sensitive inertial sensors, with excellent dynamic range and bandwidth. Large area ring laser gyros are routinely able to measure fractions of prad/s, with high duty cycle and bandwidth, providing fast, direct and local measurement of relevant geodetic and geophysical signals. Improvements of a factor $10-100$ would open the windows for general relativity tests, as the GINGER project, an Earth based experiment aiming at the Lense-Thirring test at $1\%$ level…

By sparsely covering regions of interest in the phase space with "test orbits", transforming nearby observations over a few nights into the co-rotating frame of the test orbit at each epoch, and then performing a generalized Hough transform on the transformed detections followed by orbit determination (OD) filtering, candidate clusters of observations belonging to the same objects ca…

In this work a continuum model for high frequency poroelastic longitudinal waves in hydrogels is presented. A viscoelastic force describing the interaction between the polymer network and the bounded water present in such materials is introduced. The model is tested by means of ultrasound wave speed and attenuation measurements in polyvinylalcohol hydrogel samples. The theory and experiments show that ultrasound attenuation decreases linearly with the increase of the water volume fraction "{\beta}" of the hydrogel. The introduction of the viscoelastic force between the bounded water and the polymer network leads to a bi-phasic theory showing an ul…

However, since the sacrificial damages cannot recover instantly, the toughness of these gels drops substantially during consecutive cyclic loadings. Here, we propose a new damageless reinforcement strategy for hydrogels utilizing strain-induced crystallization (SIC). In Slide-Ring (SR) gels with freely movable cross-links, crystalline repetitively forms and destructs with elongation and relaxation, resulting in both excellent toughness of 5.5 - 25.2 MJ/m$^3$ and 87% - 95% instant recovery of extension energy between two consecutive 11-fold loading-unlo…

The variational formulation of finite elasticity coupled with Fickian diffusion has a two-field minimization structure, wherein the deformation map and the fluid-volume flux are obtained as minimizers of a time-discrete potential involving internal and external energetic contributions. Following spatial discretization, the minimization principle is implemented using a conforming Q$_1$RT$_0$ finite-element design, making use of the lowest-order Ravia…
