The Reinforcement of Sludge-Recycling Enhanced Flocculation by the Acid Activation of Settled Sludge

Wei Wei, Lin Sheng, Haoyang Gong, Dong Zhou, Xinli Cai & Shuguang Zhu
Sludge-recycling enhanced flocculation (SEF) is an effective method for enhancing flocculation. In the conventional SEF process, the settled sludge is recirculated into the flocculation process without any further treatment. However, studies have shown that the efficacy of the SEF process could be improved by pre-treating the sludge. In this work, the acid activation of sludge was performed using a range of pH values (1.0 – 6.0) and charge states, with and without long-chain bridging. The...

Attic black-figure kylix

Centre for Ancient Cultures Museum

Wheel-made Attic black-figure kylix on red background with a stemmed base, a deep bowl, and pair of opposing horizontal handles. This type of kylix is also called an “eye-cup” for its characteristic double-eye decoration. It was used for drinking wine; the eyes were possibly apotropaic, serving to ward off the bad effects of drinking too much, but also functioned like a mask when a drinker held the cup up to his lips. The interior...

Data Engineering the Distributed and Intelligent Power System in Smart Energy City

Steve Quenette, Ayesha Sadiq, Reza Razzaghi & Sharnelle Lai
This page introduces the DIPS (Distributed and Intelligent Power Systems) platform. DIPS is one outcome of the development of the Monash Microgrid, as part of the Net Zero Initiative. It provides a lens into the Clayton campus of Monash University, whereby distributed energy resources (DERs), outside of performing their operational role in decarbonizing Monash’s operations, appear as instruments in a research laboratory. The campus is then a research environment for performing experiments on “smarts” coordinating...

Fiona Longmuir, Beatriz Gallo Cordoba, Michael Phillips, Kelly-Ann Allen & Mehdi Moharami
The report details findings of the 2022 Monash University Teachers’ Perceptions of their Work Survey, a study of Australian teachers’ perceptions of their career experiences.
Debate and discourse in the media highlight an absence of teacher voices in conversations about the working contexts and conditions that impact them daily. This report contains teacher-elicited insights about their experiences and reflections on what could occur to improve current practices and educational policies impacting their work

Real-time Machine Learning at the edge of power systems

Ayesha Sadiq, Mitchell Hargreaves, Sharnelle Lai, Steve Quenette & Reza Razzaghi
The Monash Smart Energy City project provides a lens into the Clayton campus of Monash University, where distributed energy resources (DERs) appear as if they were instruments in a research laboratory. An outcome of the project is the Distributed and Intelligent Power Systems (DIPS) platform (see our recent announcement). DIPS brokers the large volume of data from sensors in a dynamic power environment, enabling predictive analysis and archiving for later use. This blog is about...
