Particle Size Analysis in WasteWater

To understand nature of particles that comprise TSS in wastewater, measurement of particle size is undertaken. PSD important in assessing effectiveness of treatment processes (secondary sedimentation, effluent filtration, and effluent disinfection).

Classification of Solids in Wastewater

In wastewater treatment, the solid content is classified based on the size and nature of the particles present. The classification helps in determining the appropriate treatment processes for removing or separating solids from the wastewater. Here are the common classifications of solid content in wastewater:

Material Composition of a Brick

Bricks have been an integral part of construction for centuries, serving as the building blocks of countless structures. The composition of bricks plays a crucial role in determining their properties, strength, durability, and suitability for different applications. Understanding the composition of bricks is essential for architects, engineers,

Tests Applied on Bricks

Brick testing is an essential process to ensure the quality and suitability of bricks for construction purposes. Several tests are conducted to evaluate various properties of bricks. Here are some common tests required for brick testing: Compressive Test, Water Absorption, Efflorescence Test, Warpage Test, Water Absorption Test, Soundness Test, and Dimensional and Shape Tolerance Test.

Methods of Preventing Dampness in Buildings

To prevent dampness in buildings, follow these methods: 1) Choose a suitable site and landscape to divert water away. 2) Install effective drainage systems and maintain them. 3) Apply waterproofing materials on vulnerable areas. 4) Use a damp-proof course to prevent rising damp. 5) Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in moisture-prone areas. 6)

Different Types of Asphalt Binders - Bitumen Grades

In road construction and asphalting the streets, bitumen is mainly used as a binder in the road layers. In road construction, penetration grade bitumen and viscosity grade bitumen are the most commonly used grades; however, other types of bitumen can also be used. According to the "different types of bitumen used for road construction" article by Infinity Galaxy, there are various grades of bitumen applied in road construction.
