NOISE-ASSISTED EMD METHODS IN ACTION | Advances in

Abstract. In this work we explore the capabilities of two noise-assisted EMD methods: Ensemble EMD (EEMD) and the recently proposed Complete Ensemble EMD with Adaptive Noise (CEEMDAN), to recover a pure tone embedded in different kinds of noise, both stationary and nonstationary. Experiments are carried out for assessing their performances with

Heat is a by-product of decomposition, and is important in raising and maintaining temperatures for efficient decomposition. There are several trade-offs related to optimizing temperature control. Temperatures of 45 to 59°C (113-138°F) provide the highest rate of decomposition, with temperatures above 59°C (138°F) reducing the rate of

During the initial stages of decomposition, organic acids are produced and the pH drops. Some sources suggest adding small amounts of lime to maintain and enhance microbial activity at this time. However, high rates of lime will convert ammonium-nitrogen to ammonia gas, which in turn will lead to the loss of nitrogen from the pile.

Flow physics and mixing quality in a confined impinging

In this study, the flow pattern, turbulence characteristics, mixing quality, and residence time of a confined impinging jet mixer (CIJM) have been investigated via direct numerical simulations. To study the effects of the scale, three Reynolds numbers of 200, 600, and 1000 are examined.

Regular mixing of the material, referred to as turning, enhances aeration in the composting material. Good aeration during composting will encourage complete decomposition of carbon (C) to carbon dioxide (CO 2) rather than releasing carbon as methane (CH 4). Too much aeration, however, can actually reduce the rate of decomposition by cooling the
