  Title TOI-677b: A Warm Jupiter (P=11.2 days) on an Eccentric Orbit Transiting a Late F-type Star Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Astronomical Journal Abbreviated Journal Astron. J.  
  Volume 159 Issue 4 Pages 10 pp  
  Keywords Exoplanets; Extrasolar gas giants; Exoplanet astronomy; Transit photometry; Radial velocity; Planet hosting stars  
  Abstract We report the discovery of TOI-677.b, first identified as a candidate in light curves obtained within Sectors 9 and 10 of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission and confirmed with radial velocities. TOI-677.b has a mass of M-p = 1.236(-0.067)(+0.069) M-J, a radius of R-P = 1.170 +/- 0.03 R-J, and orbits its bright host star (V=.9.8 mag) with an orbital period of 11.23660 +/- 0.00011 d, on an eccentric orbit with e = 0.435 +/- 0.024. The host star has a mass of M-star = 1.181 +/- 0.058 M-circle dot, a radius of R. = 1.28(-0.03)(+0.03) R-circle dot, an age of 2.92(-0.73)(+0.80) Gyr and solar metallicity, properties consistent with a main-sequence late-F star with T-eff = 6295 +/- 77 K. We find evidence in the radial velocity measurements of a secondary long-term signal, which could be due to an outer companion. The TOI-677.b system is a well-suited target for Rossiter-Mclaughlin observations that can constrain migration mechanisms of close-in giant planets.

  Title Finite-time localized singularities as a mechanism for turbulent dissipation Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Physical Review Fluids Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. Fluids  
  Volume 5 Issue 5 Pages 15 pp  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The nature of the fluctuations of the dissipation rate in fluid turbulence is still under debate. One reason may be that the observed fluctuations are strong events of dissipation, which reveal the trace of spatiotemporal singularities of the Euler equations, which are the zero viscosity limit of ordinary incompressible fluids. Viscosity regularizes these hypothetical singularities, resulting in a chaotic fluctuating state in which the strong events appear randomly in space and time, making the energy dissipation highly fluctuating. Yet, to date, it is not known if smooth initial conditions of the Euler equations with finite energy do or do not blow up in finite time. We overcome this central difficulty by providing a scenario for singularity-mediated turbulence based on the self-focusing nonlinear Schrodinger equation. It avoids the intrinsic difficulty of Euler equations since it is well known that solutions of this NLS equation with smooth initial conditions do blow up in finite time. When adding viscosity, the model shows (i) that dissipation takes place near the singularities only, (ii) that such intense events are random in space and time, (iii) that the mean dissipation rate is almost constant as the viscosity varies, and (iv) the observation of an Obukhov-Kolmogorov spectrum with a power-law dependence together with an intermittent behavior using structure function correlations, in close correspondence with the one measured in fluid turbulence.

  Title Hydrodynamic slip can align thin nanoplatelets in shear flow Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Nature Communications Abbreviated Journal Nat. Commun.  
  Volume 11 Issue 1 Pages 10 pp  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The large-scale processing of nanomaterials such as graphene and MoS2 relies on understanding the flow behaviour of nanometrically-thin platelets suspended in liquids. Here we show, by combining non-equilibrium molecular dynamics and continuum simulations, that rigid nanoplatelets can attain a stable orientation for sufficiently strong flows. Such a stable orientation is in contradiction with the rotational motion predicted by classical colloidal hydrodynamics. This surprising effect is due to hydrodynamic slip at the liquid-solid interface and occurs when the slip length is larger than the platelet thickness; a slip length of a few nanometers may be sufficient to observe alignment. The predictions we developed by examining pure and surface-modified graphene is applicable to different solvent/2D material combinations. The emergence of a fixed orientation in a direction nearly parallel to the flow implies a slip-dependent change in several macroscopic transport properties, with potential impact on applications ranging from functional inks to nanocomposites. Current theories predict that a plate-like particle rotates continuously in a shear flow. Kamal et al. instead show that even nanometric hydrodynamic slip may induce a thin plate-like particle to adopt a stable orientation, and discuss implications of this effect for flow processing of 2D nanomaterials.

  Title The White Dwarf Binary Pathways Survey -III. Contamination from hierarchical triples containing a white dwarf Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Monthly Notices Of The Royal Astronomical Society Abbreviated Journal Mon. Not. Roy. Astron. Soc.  
  Volume 494 Issue 1 Pages 915-922  
  Keywords methods: numerical; methods: statistical; binaries: close; stars: kinematics and dynamics  
  Abstract The White Dwarf Binary Pathways Survey aims at increasing the number of known detached A, F, G, and K main-sequence stars in close orbits with white dwarf companions (WD+AFGK binaries) to refine our understanding about compact binary evolution and the nature of Supernova Ia progenitors. These close WD+AFGK binary stars are expected to form through common envelope evolution, in which tidal forces tend to circularize the orbit. However, some of the identified WD+AFGK binary candidates show eccentric orbits, indicating that these systems are either formed through a different mechanism or perhaps they are not close WD+AFGK binaries. We observed one of these eccentric WD+AFGK binaries with SPHERE and find that the system TYC 7218-934-1 is in fact a triple system where the WD is a distant companion. The inner binary likely consists of the G-type star plus an unseen low-mass companion in an eccentric orbit. Based on this finding, we estimate the fraction of triple systems that could contaminate the WD+AFGK sample. We find that less than 15 per cent of our targets with orbital periods shorter than 100 d might be hierarchical triples.

  Title A Polygenic Risk Score Suggests Shared Genetic Architecture of Voice Break With Early Markers of Pubertal Onset in Boys Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism Abbreviated Journal J. Clin. Endocrinol. Metab.  
  Volume 105 Issue 3 Pages E349-E357  
  Keywords gonadarche; pubarche; polygenic risk score; GWAS; male puberty  
  Abstract Context: Voice break, as a landmark of advanced male puberty in genome-wide association studies (GWAS), has revealed that pubertal timing is a highly polygenic trait. Although voice break is easily recorded in large cohorts, it holds quite low precision as a marker of puberty. In contrast, gonadarche and pubarche are early and clinically well-defined measures of puberty onset. Objective: To determine whether a polygenic risk score (PRS) of alleles that confer risk for voice break associates with age at gonadarche (AAG) and age at pubarche (AAP) in Chilean boys. Experimental Design: Longitudinal study. Subjects and Methods: 401 boys from the Growth and Obesity Chilean Cohort Study (n = 1194; 49.2% boys). Main Outcome Measures: Biannual clinical pubertal staging including orchidometry. AAG and AAP were estimated by censoring methods. Genotyping was performed using the Multi-Ethnic Global Array (Illumina). Using GWAS summary statistics from the UK-Biobank, 29 significant and independent single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with age at voice break were extracted. Individual PRS were computed as the sum of risk alleles weighted by the effect size. Results: The PRS was associated with AAG (beta=0.01, P = 0.04) and AAP (beta=0.185, P = 0.0004). In addition, boys within the 20% highest PRS experienced gonadarche and pubarche 0.55 and 0.67 years later than those in the lowest 20%, respectively (P = 0.013 and P = 0.007). Conclusions: Genetic variants identified in large GWAS on age at VB significantly associate with age at testicular growth and pubic hair development, suggesting that these events share a genetic architecture across ethnically distinct populations.

  Title TOI-222: a single-transit TESS candidate revealed to be a 34-d eclipsing binary with CORALIE, EulerCam, and NGTS Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Monthly Notices Of The Royal Astronomical Society Abbreviated Journal Mon. Not. Roy. Astron. Soc.

  Abstract We report the period, eccentricity, and mass determination for the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) single-transit event candidate TOI-222, which displayed a single 3000 ppm transit in the TESS 2-min cadence data from Sector 2. We determine the orbital period via radial velocity measurements (P = 33.9 d), which allowed for ground-based photometric detection of two subsequent transits. Our data show that the companion to TOI-222 is a low-mass star, with a radius of 0.18(-0.10)(+0.39) R-circle dot and a mass of 0.23 +/- 0.01 M-circle dot. This discovery showcases the ability to efficiently discover long-period systems from TESS single-transit events using a combination of radial velocity monitoring coupled with high-precision ground-based photometry.

  Title The highly inflated giant planet WASP-174b Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Astronomy & Astrophysics Abbreviated Journal Astron. Astrophys.  
  Volume 633 Issue Pages 12 pp  
  Keywords planetary systems; stars: fundamental parameters; stars: individual: WASP-174; techniques: photometric; techniques: radial velocities; methods: data analysis  
  Abstract Context. The transiting exoplanetary system WASP-174 was reported to be composed by a main-sequence F star (V = 11.8 mag) and a giant planet, WASP-174b (orbital period P-orb = 4.23 days). However only an upper limit was placed on the planet mass (<1.3 M-Jup), and a highly uncertain planetary radius (0.7-1.7 R-Jup) was determined.Aims. We aim to better characterise both the star and the planet and precisely measure their orbital and physical parameters.Methods. In order to constrain the mass of the planet, we obtained new measurements of the radial velocity of the star and joined them with those from the discovery paper. Photometric data from the HATSouth survey and new multi-band, high-quality (precision reached up to 0.37 mmag) photometric follow-up observations of transit events were acquired and analysed for getting accurate photometric parameters. We fit the model to all the observations, including data from the TESS space telescope, in two different modes: incorporating the stellar isochrones into the fit, and using an empirical method to get the stellar parameters. The two modes resulted to be consistent with each other to within 2<sigma>.Results. We confirm the grazing nature of the WASP-174b transits with a confidence level greater than 5 sigma, which is also corroborated by simultaneously observing the transit through four optical bands and noting how the transit depth changes due to the limb-darkening effect. We estimate that approximate to 76% of the disk of the planet actually eclipses the parent star at mid-transit of its transit events. We find that WASP-174b is a highly-inflated hot giant planet with a mass of M-p = 0.330 +/- 0.091 M-Jup and a radius of R-p = 1.435 +/- 0.050 R-Jup, and is therefore a good target for transmission-spectroscopy observations. With a density of rho (p) = 0.135 +/- 0.042 g cm(-3), it is amongst the lowest-density planets ever discovered with precisely measured mass and radius.

  Title Multiobjective scheduling algorithm for flexible manufacturing systems with Petri nets Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Journal Of Manufacturing Systems Abbreviated Journal J. Manuf. Syst.  
  Volume 54 Issue Pages 272-284  
  Keywords Machine scheduling; Multi-objective optimization; Petri nets  
  Abstract In this work, we focus on general multi-objective scheduling problems that can be modeled using a Petri net framework. Due to their generality, Petri nets are a useful abstraction that captures multiple characteristics of real-life processes. To provide a general solution procedure for the abstraction, we propose three alternative approaches using an indirect scheme to represent the solution: (1) a genetic algorithm that combines two objectives through a weighted fitness function, (2) a non dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) that explicitly addresses the multi-objective nature of the problem and (3) a multi-objective local search approach that simultaneously explores multiple candidate solutions. These algorithms are tested in an extensive computational experiment showing the applicability of this general framework to obtain quality solutions.

  Title Monitoring a 28.5 m High Anchored Pile Wall in Gravel Using Various Methods Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Sensors Abbreviated Journal Sensors  
  Volume 20 Issue 1 Pages 14 pp  
  Keywords deep excavation; anchored wall; monitoring; pile displacement  
  Abstract Horizontal displacements of a multiple-anchor pile wall in a 28.5 m deep excavation using the top-down construction method have been monitored using optical fiber (Brillouin optical time-domain reflectometry (BOTDR)), strain gauges, inclinometers, and a topographic survey. This work presents a comparison between these different techniques to measure horizontal displacements in the pile at several stages of the soil excavation process. It was observed that displacements can be separated into two components: Rigid body motion and pile flexural deformation. Measurements using optical fiber and inclinometers are considered the most adequate and easy to install. A numerical model allows us to evaluate the influence of earth pressure on the estimated horizontal displacements. It is shown that using soil pressure on the wall given by p = 0.65Ka gamma h, on a simplified modeled wall, provides a close deduction of horizontal displacements compared to observed values on the field.

  Title Phase space classification of an Ising cellular automaton: The Q2R model Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Chaos Solitons & Fractals Abbreviated Journal Chaos Solitons Fractals  
  Volume 133 Issue Pages 14 pp  
  Keywords  
  Abstract An exact classification of the different dynamical behaviors that exhibits the phase space of a reversible and conservative cellular automaton, the so-called Q2R model, is shown in this paper. Q2R is a cellular automaton which is a dynamical variation of the Ising model in statistical physics and whose space of configurations grows exponentially with the system size. As a consequence of the intrinsic reversibility of the model, the phase space is composed only by configurations that belong to a fixed point or a cycle. In this work, we classify them in four types accordingly to well differentiated topological characteristics. Three of them -which we call of type S-I, S-II, and S-III- share a symmetry property, while the fourth, which we call of type AS does not. Specifically, we prove that any configuration of Q2R belongs to one of the four previous types of cycles. Moreover, at a combinatorial level, we can determine the number of cycles for some small periods which are almost always present in the Q2R. Finally, we provide a general overview of the resulting decomposition of the arbitrary size Q2R phase space and, in addition, we realize an exhaustive study of a small Ising system (4 x 4) which is thoroughly analyzed under this new framework, and where simple mathematical tools are introduced in order to have a more direct understanding of the Q2R dynamics and to rediscover known properties like the energy conservation.

  Volume 113 Issue Pages 1-17  
  Keywords Distributed computing; Congested clique; Round complexity; Reconstruction problem; Graph classes  
  Abstract In this paper we study the reconstruction problem in the congested clique model. Given a class of graphs g, the problem is defined as follows: if G is not an element of g, then every node must reject; if G is an element of g, then every node must end up knowing all the edges of G. The cost of an algorithm is the total number of bits received by any node through one link. It is not difficult to see that the cost of any algorithm that solves this problem is Omega(log vertical bar g(n)vertical bar/n), where g(n) is the subclass of all n-node labeled graphs in g. We prove that the lower bound is tight and that it is possible to achieve it with only 2 rounds. (C) 2020 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  Title A hybrid K-means and integer programming method for commercial territory design: a case study in meat distribution Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Annals Of Operations Research Abbreviated Journal Ann. Oper. Res.  
  Volume 286 Issue 1-2 Pages 87-117  
  Keywords Territorial design; Clustering; K-means; Integer programming; Case study  
  Abstract The objective of territorial design for a distribution company is the definition of geographic areas that group customers. These geographic areas, usually called districts or territories, should comply with operational rules while maximizing potential sales and minimizing incurred costs. Consequently, territorial design can be seen as a clustering problem in which clients are geographically grouped according to certain criteria which usually vary according to specific objectives and requirements (e.g. costs, delivery times, workload, number of clients, etc.). In this work, we provide a novel hybrid approach for territorial design by means of combining a K-means-based approach for clustering construction with an optimization framework. The K-means approach incorporates the novelty of using tour length approximation techniques to satisfy the conditions of a pork and poultry distributor based in the region of Valparaiso in Chile. The resulting method proves to be robust in the experiments performed, and the Valparaiso case study shows significant savings when compared to the original solution used by the company.

  Title Predicting Deprotonation Sites Using Alchemical Derivatives Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Journal Of Physical Chemistry A Abbreviated Journal J. Phys. Chem. A  
  Volume 124 Issue 19 Pages 3754-3760  
  Keywords  
  Abstract An alchemical transformation is any process, physical or fictitious, that connects two points in the chemical space. A particularly important transformation is the vanishing of a proton, whose energy can be linked to the proton dissociation enthalpy of acids. In this work we assess the reliability of alchemical derivatives in predicting the proton dissociation enthalpy of a diverse series of mono- and polyprotic molecules. Alchemical derivatives perform remarkably well in ranking the proton affinity of all molecules. Additionally, alchemical derivatives could be use also as a predictive tool because their predictions correlate quite well with calculations based on energy differences and experimental values. Although second-order alchemical derivatives underestimate the dissociation enthalpy, the deviation seems to be almost constant. This makes alchemical derivatives extremely accurate to evaluate the difference in proton affinity between two acid sites of polyprotic molecule. Finally, we show that the reason for the underestimation of the dissociation enthalpy is most likely the contribution of higher-order derivatives.

  Title Three short-period Jupiters from TESS: HIP 65Ab, TOI-157b, and TOI-169b Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Astronomy & Astrophysics Abbreviated Journal Astron. Astrophys.  
  Volume 639 Issue Pages 17 pp  
  Keywords planets and satellites: detection; planets and satellites: individual: TOI-129; planets and satellites: individual: HIP 65A; planets and satellites: individual: TOI-157  
  Abstract We report the confirmation and mass determination of three hot Jupiters discovered by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission: HIP 65Ab (TOI-129, TIC-201248411) is an ultra-short-period Jupiter orbiting a bright (V = 11.1 mag) K4-dwarf every 0.98 days. It is a massive 3.213 +/- 0.078 M-J planet in a grazing transit configuration with an impact parameter of b = 1.17(-0.08)(+0.10) b=1.17-0.08+0.10 . As a result the radius is poorly constrained, 2.03(-0.49)(+0.61)R(J) 2.03-0.49+0.61 RJ . The planet's distance to its host star is less than twice the separation at which it would be destroyed by Roche lobe overflow. It is expected to spiral into HIP 65A on a timescale ranging from 80 Myr to a few gigayears, assuming a reduced tidal dissipation quality factor of Q(s)(') = 10(7) – 10(9) Qs ' =107-109 . We performed a full phase-curve analysis of the TESS data and detected both illumination- and ellipsoidal variations as well as Doppler boosting. HIP 65A is part of a binary stellar system, with HIP 65B separated by 269 AU (3.95 arcsec on sky). TOI-157b (TIC 140691463) is a typical hot Jupiter with a mass of 1.18 +/- 0.13 M-J and a radius of 1.29 +/- 0.02 R-J. It has a period of 2.08 days, which corresponds to a separation of just 0.03 AU. This makes TOI-157 an interesting system, as the host star is an evolved G9 sub-giant star (V = 12.7). TOI-169b (TIC 183120439) is a bloated Jupiter orbiting a V = 12.4 G-type star. It has a mass of 0.79 +/- 0.06 M-J and a radius of 1.09(-0.05)(+0.08)R(J) 1.09-0.05+0.08<mml:msub>RJ . Despite having the longest orbital period (P = 2.26 days) of the three planets, TOI-169b receives the most irradiation and is situated on the edge of the Neptune desert. All three host stars are metal rich with [Fe / H] ranging from 0.18 to0.24.

  Title Microencapsulated Bio-Based Rejuvenators for the Self-Healing of Bituminous Materials Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Materials Abbreviated Journal Materials  
  Volume 13 Issue 6 Pages 16 pp  
  Keywords asphalt; encapsulated rejuvenators; agricultural waste; bio-oil; self-healing efficiency  
  Abstract Asphalt self-healing by encapsulated rejuvenating agents is considered a revolutionary technology for the autonomic crack-healing of aged asphalt pavements. This paper aims to explore the use of Bio-Oil (BO) obtained from liquefied agricultural biomass waste as a bio-based encapsulated rejuvenating agent for self-healing of bituminous materials. Novel BO capsules were synthesized using two simple dripping methods through dropping funnel and syringe pump devices, where the BO agent was microencapsulated by external ionic gelation in a biopolymer matrix of sodium alginate. Size, surface aspect, and elemental composition of the BO capsules were characterized by optical and scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Thermal stability and chemical properties of BO capsules and their components were assessed through thermogravimetric analysis (TGA-DTG) and Fourier-Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR-ATR). The mechanical behavior of the capsules was evaluated by compressive and low-load micro-indentation tests. The self-healing efficiency over time of BO as a rejuvenating agent in cracked bitumen samples was quantified by fluorescence microscopy. Main results showed that the BO capsules presented an adequate morphology for the asphalt self-healing application, with good thermal stability and physical-chemical properties. It was also proven that the BO can diffuse in the bitumen reducing the viscosity and consequently self-healing the open microcracks.

  Title Renewable energy expansion in the Chilean power market: A dynamic general equilibrium modeling approach to determine CO2 emission baselines Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Journal Of Cleaner Production Abbreviated Journal J. Clean Prod.  
  Volume 247 Issue Pages 11 pp  
  Keywords CGE model; Renewable energy; CO2 emissions; Chile  
  Abstract Over the last decade, a high dependency on carbon-intensive fuels in the Chilean power sector has led to environmental concerns, particularly regarding rapid growth in CO2 emissions. More recently, the power sector has experienced significant structural changes with a rapid expansion of renewables in the energy matrix, and this trend is expected to cause significant variations in future CO2-emission baseline scenarios. To investigate the economy-wide impact of renewable energy expansions in Chile's energy mix, this research, based on a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model, examines different CO2 emission baseline scenarios. However, because traditional CGE modeling approaches cannot capture the impact of a sector's recent structural changes, we present a step-by-step approach to incorporate different energy matrices from an external engineering bottom-up model into the CGE model. The results indicate that the Business as Usual (BAU) scenario, in which structural changes are not considered, significantly overstates expected emissions. Conversely, considering structural changes in our CGE model shows Chile advancing towards its declared Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, the methodology implemented in the study has the advantage of being a simple integrated approach that is coherent with current modeling capacities in many developing contexts.

  Title New Insights on the Estimation of the Anaerobic Biodegradability of Plant Material: Identifying Valuable Plants for Sustainable Energy Production Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Processes Abbreviated Journal Processes  
  Volume 8 Issue 7 Pages 23 pp  
  Keywords anaerobic digestion; biodegradability; lignocellulosics; fiber degradation  
  Abstract Based on fifteen European plant species, a statistical model for the estimation of the anaerobic biodegradability of plant material was developed. We show that this new approach represents an accurate and cost-effective method to identify valuable energy plants for sustainable energy production. In particular, anaerobic biodegradability (B-o) of lignocellulosic material was empirically found to be related to the amount of cellulose plus lignin, as analytically assessed by the van Soest method, i.e., the acid detergent fiber (ADF) value. Apart from being theoretically meaningful, the ADF-based empirical model requires the least effort compared to the other four proposed conceptual models proposed, as individual fractions of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin do not need to be assessed, which also enhances the predictive accuracy of the model's estimation. The model's results showed great predictability power, allowing us to identify interesting crops for sustainable crop rotations. Finally, the model was used to predictB(o)of 114 European plant samples that had been previously characterized by means of the van Soest method.

  Title Effects of strain gradients in the onset of global buckling in slender walls due to earthquake loading Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Bulletin Of Earthquake Engineering Abbreviated Journal Bull. Earthq. Eng.  
  Volume 18 Issue 7 Pages 3205-3221  
  Keywords Walls; Global buckling; Reinforced concrete; Earthquake  
  Abstract Global buckling of slender walls, reported only in a few laboratory tests before 2010, became a critical issue in design of reinforced concrete buildings after it was observed following the 2010 Mw 8.8 Chile earthquake and the 2011 Mw 6.3 New Zealand earthquake. Researchers have proposed theoretical buckling models based on prismatic columns subjected to uniform tension/compression cycles, where the key parameters are slenderness ratio, number of curtains of reinforcement, and maximum tensile strain before buckling during load reversal. These models have shown sufficient accuracy in comparison with laboratory tests on columns under such loading conditions. However, buckling in walls is more complex because of variation of strains through the wall depth and variation of moment along the wall height. Nonlinear finite elements are used to evaluate the effects of these more complex loadings on buckling of wall boundary elements. Analyses showed that the maximum tensile strain (averaged over the wall out-of-plane unsupported height) required to buckle the wall during load reversal does not depend on the moment variation along the wall height. Moreover, for typical wall lengths, the wall boundary behaves like an isolated column subjected to axial force cycles, with minimal apparent bracing provided by the wall web. This allows to analyze a broad range of practical cases for buckling susceptibility using simplified approaches based on buckling models of axially loaded columns.

  Title Digested blackwater treatment in a partial nitritation-anammox reactor under repeated starvation and reactivation periods Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Journal Of Cleaner Production Abbreviated Journal J. Clean Prod.  
  Volume 244 Issue Pages 9 pp  
  Keywords Anammox; Blackwater; Decentralized systems; Nitritation; Starvation; Wastewater source separation  
  Abstract Wastewater source-separation and on-site treatment systems face severe problems in wastewater availability. Therefore, the effect of repeated short-term starvation and reactivation periods on a partial nitritation-anammox (PN/AMX) based processes were assessed treating digested blackwater at room temperature. Two sequencing batch reactors (SBR) were operated, one of them during 24 h/day the whole week (SBR-C, which served as control) and the other with repeated starvation/reactivation periods during the nights and the weekends (SBR-D), using simulated blackwater (300 mg N/L and 200 mg COD/L) as substrate. Results showed no remarkable differences in overall processes performance between both reactors, achieving total nitrogen removal efficiencies (NRE) around 90%. Furthermore, no significant variations were measured in specific activities, except for the aerobic heterotrophic one that was lower in SBR-D, presumably due to the exposure to anoxic conditions. Then, the technical feasibility of applying the PN/AMX system to treat real blackwater produced in an office building during working hours was successfully proved in a third reactor (SBR-R), with the same starvation/reactivation periods tested in SBR-D. Despite the low temperature, ranging from 14 to 21 degrees C, total NRE up to 95% and total nitrogen concentration in the effluent lower than 10 mg N/L were achieved. Moreover, the PN/AMX process performance was immediately recovered after a long starvation period of 15 days (simulating holidays). Results proved for the first time the feasibility and long-term stability (100 days) of applying the PN/AMX processes for the treatment (and potential reuse) of blackwater in a decentralized system where wastewater is not always available.
