Heavy Metals in a High Arctic Fiord and Their Introduction with the Wastewater: A Case Study of AdventfjordenLongyearbyen System, Svalbard
PublicationLongyearbyen is the largest settlement on Svalbard archipelago, with 2400 permanent residents and approximately 150,000 tourists visiting every year. The city annually releases approximately 285,000 m3 of untreated wastewater to the nearby Adventfjorden. To date, the environmental impact of this continuous input has been studied mainly regarding the sediments and benthic fauna in the fiord. Here, we present results from a study...

PublicationFor the first time, we present a metaanalysis of experimental and literature data to determine which microencapsulation methodology, and which wall material are best suited to protect fish oil. Our analysis covered a period of several decades of research (1984–2018). The analysis was conducted on 196 literature datapoints, and 16 datapoints determined experimentally for this publication. PLS regression was used to determine...

Substancje biogenne i inne problemy w zarządzaniu wodami opadowymi w portach
PublicationDo niedawna uważano, że substancjami zanieczyszczającymi wody portowe są głównie substancje ropopochodne.

Computationally Effcient Solution of a 2D Diffusive Wave Equation Used for Flood Inundation Problems
PublicationThis paper presents a study dealing with increasing the computational efficiency in modeling floodplain inundation using a twodimensional diffusive wave equation. To this end, the domain decomposition technique was used. The resulting onedimensional diffusion equations were approximated in space with the modified finite element scheme, whereas time integration was carried out using the implicit twolevel scheme. The proposed...

Concept of a swirling diffuser in batch blending tanks
PublicationThe mixing of two or more components belongs to the category of the most common unit operations, both in technology and in nature. One particular version is homogenization (blending), the effectivity of which is strongly related to the blending time. Among many differentiated individual solutions of mixing systems used in blenders, one should distinguish the class of agitators with diffusers. An analysis of the character of the...

Numerical Analysis of Steady Gradually Varied Flow in Open Channel Networks with Hydraulic Structures
PublicationIn this paper, a method for numerical analysis of steady gradually varied fl ow in channel networks with hydraulic structures is considered. For this purpose, a boundary problem for the system of ordinary differential equations consisting of energy equation and mass conservation equations is formulated.

Verification of baffle factor for straight pipe flow
PublicationDuring the water disinfection devices designing, it is often assumed that the baffle factor for a straight pipe reactors is equal to one. It would be possible only for the plug flow, which is a simplified model of the flow and does not appear in real situations. The paper contains an equation which enables calculation of the real value of the baffle factor for the pipe flow.

Determination of Mechanical Energy Loss in Steady Flow by Means of Dissipation Power
PublicationWhen systems of simple geometry like pipes or regular channels are considered, the mechan ical energy loss of the fluid flow can be expressed by local and longitudinal empirical energy loss coefficients. However, in the case of large spatially distributed objects, there are no simple approaches to this task. In practice, general recommendations addressing different types of objects are used, but they usually provide very coarse...

Multicomponent ionic liquid CMC prediction
PublicationWe created a model to predict CMC of ILs based on 704 experimental values published in 43 publications since 2000. Our model was able to predict CMC of variety of ILs in binary or ternary system in a presence of salt or alcohol. The molecular volume of IL (Vm), solventaccessible surface (Sˆ), solvation enthalpy (DsolvGN), concentration of salt (Cs) or alcohol (Ca) and their molecular volumes (Vms and Vma, respectively) were chosen...

MODELOWANIE PRZEPŁYWÓW NIEUSTALONYCH NA TERENACH ZALEWOWYCH Z WYKORZYSTANIEM DWUWYMIAROWEGO RÓWNANIA FALI DYFUZYJNEJ
PublicationZjawisko propagacji fali powodziowej na terenie zalewowym można modelować za pomocą równań płytkiej wody. W związku z tym, że w fazie początkowej napływu wód teren zalewowy nie jest pokryty wodą, równania płytkiej wody muszą być rozwiązywane w obszarze o zmiennej w czasie geometrii. W konsekwencji obszar ten jest ograniczony przez linię czoła propagującej fali, która oddziela teren suchy od zajętego przez wodę. W takiej sytuacji...

Comparison of Average Energy Slope Estimation Formulas for Onedimensional Steady Gradually Varied Flow
PublicationTo find the steady flow water surface profile, it is possible to use Bernoulli’s equation, which is a discrete form of the differential energy equation. Such an approach requires the average energy slope between crosssections to be estimated. In the literature, many methods are proposed for estimating the average energy slope in this case, such as the arithmetic mean, resulting in the standard step method, the harmonic mean and...
