  • Advances in water mains network modelling for improved operations 

    Sophocleous, S; Savić, Dragan; Kapelan, Zoran; Shen, Y; Sage, P (Elsevier, 2015-01-01)
    © 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd. The traditional approach to water mains network model calibration is too coarse. System and data anomalies impact on the simulated pressures in the models. These include unknown ...
  • Advantages of integrated and sustainability based assessment for metabolism based strategic planning of urban water systems 

    Behzadian, Kourosh; Kapelan, Zoran (Elsevier, 2015-09-15)
    Despite providing water-related services as the primary purpose of urban water system (UWS), all relevant activities require capital investments and operational expenditures, consume resources (e.g. materials and chemicals), ...
  • Agent-based hierarchical production planning and scheduling in make-to-order manufacturing system 

    He, N; Zhang, DZ; Li, Q (Elsevier, 2013-08-29)
    Nowadays, manufacturing organisations face increasing pressures from the frequent change in product type, continuous demand fluctuation and unexpected change in customer requirements. In order to survive in the turbulent ...
  • Airflow energy harvesting with high wind velocities for industrial applications
