  • Ghali K.; Ghaddar N.; Harathani J.; Jones B. (PRINCETONPO BOX 625, PRINCETON, NJ 08540 USA, 2004)
    A numerical and experimental investigation is conducted of periodic ventilation processes in fabric containing microcapsules of phase change materials (PCM). When PCMS are added to textiles, they release heat as the liquid ...
  • El-Hougeiri N.; El Fadel M. (LONDON1 OLIVERS YARD, 55 CITY ROAD, LONDON EC1Y 1SP, ENGLAND, 2004)
    Indoor and outdoor air quality was investigated at 28 public locations with mostly mechanical ventilation systems. The locations were selected from various geographic categories representing different environments for ...
  • Moukalled F.; Darwish M. (PHILADELPHIA325 CHESTNUT ST, SUITE 800, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19106 USA, 2004)
    This work is concerned with the implementation and testing, within a structured collocated finite-volume framework, of seven segregated algorithms for the prediction of multiphase flow at all speeds. These algorithms belong ...

    A numerical investigation examined the effects on heat transfer of mounting baffles to the upper inclined surfaces of trapezoidal cavities. Two thermal boundary conditions are considered. In the first, the left, short ...
  • Moukalled F.; Darwish M. (PHILADELPHIA325 CHESTNUT ST, SUITE 800, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19106 USA, 2004)
    In this article, seven segregated single-fluid, pressure-based algorithms are extended to predict multifluid flow at all speeds. The extended algorithms form part of the mass conservation-based algorithms (MCBA) group, in ...
  • Shihadeh A.; Azar S.; Antonios C.; Haddad A. (OXFORDTHE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2004)
    A pilot study of narghile water-pipe smokers in a cafe in the Hamra neighborhood of Beirut, Lebanon, was conducted to develop a preliminary model of narghile water-pipe smoking behavior for use in laboratory smoking machine ...
  • Jaber M.Y.; Nuwayhid R.Y.; Rosen M.A. (ABINGDON4 PARK SQUARE, MILTON PARK, ABINGDON OX14 4RN, OXON, ENGLAND, 2004)
    Many researchers have attempted to bridge their fields with others to gain insight into their own, benefiting from the synergies of such processes. As markets have become increasingly more competitive, disorder has become ...
  • Artail H.A. (AMSTERDAMPO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 2004)
    Web personalization and customization are increasingly becoming important services for web users. The conventional approaches used in implementing these services often lead to poor responsiveness, lengthy network delays, ...
  • Smaili A.; Atallah N. (, 2004)
    Mechanism synthesis requires the use of optimization methods to obtain approximate solution whenever the desired number of positions the mechanism is required to traverse exceeds a few (five in a 4R linkage). Deterministic ...
  • Fares A.; Khachan A.; Kasbah A.B.; Zeidan M.; Kayssi A. (, 2004)
    In this paper we present four Radio Frequency (RF) measurements used to evaluate fundamental performance parameters of Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) equipment. We describe the relevant theory for each ...
  • Metni M.; El-Fadel M.; Sadek S.; Kayal R.; El Khoury D.L. (BASINGSTOKERANKINE RD, BASINGSTOKE RG24 8PR, HANTS, ENGLAND, 2004)
    This paper presents a regional groundwater vulnerability assessment for Lebanon using the DRASTIC model coupled with a GIS-based framework to prioritize protection efforts, whereby the most vulnerable areas to groundwater ...
  • Chedid R.B.; Ghajar R.F. (OXFORDTHE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, OXON, ENGLAND, 2004)
    This paper examines the merits of implementing energy efficiency policies in the building sector in Lebanon following the approach normally adopted in Climate Change studies. The paper first examines the impact of the ...
  • Kuwatly I.; Sraj M.; Masri Z.A.; Artail H. (, 2004)
    A modern technology in the area of intrusion detection is honeypot technology that unlike common IDSs tends to provide the attacker with all the necessary resources needed for a successful attack. Honeypots provide a ...
  • Hashisho Z.; El-Fadel M. (DORDRECHTVAN GODEWIJCKSTRAAT 30, 3311 GZ DORDRECHT, NETHERLANDS, 2004)
    Lead is a purely toxic heavy metal which induces a wide variety of adverse physiologic effects. Nevertheless, it has been mined and used for more than 8,000 years. Among the different contemporary sources of lead pollution, ...
  • Ayoub G.M.; Saikaly P. (OXFORDTHE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2004)
    The effect of step-feed and recycling on the efficiency of treatment in rotating biological contractors (RBCs) was investigated. Experiments were conducted on a RBC system consisting of two three-stage units. The two units ...
  • Ayoub G.; Khoury R.; Ghannam J.; Acra A.; Hamdar B. (, 2004)
    A general objective of the study was set at evaluating the feasibility of exploiting the submarine springs in the Chekka Bay, Lebanon, taking into consideration technical, economic, social, and environmental aspects of ...
  • Ayoub G.; Saikaly P.; Ei-Fadel M.; Baydoun E. (LARCHMONT2 MADISON AVENUE, LARCHMONT, NY 10538 USA, 2004)
    A study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of step-feed in a rotating biological contactor (RBC) system consisting of two three-stage units (one control and one step-feed) treating synthetic wastewater. The ...
  • Harajli M.H. (RESTON1801 ALEXANDER BELL DR, RESTON, VA 20191-4400 USA, 2004)
    A comparative analytical study of the average bond strength at failure of reinforcing bars embedded in unconfined normal-strength concrete (NSC) and high-strength concrete (HSC) is undertaken. The analysis makes use of an ...
  • Bou-Zeid E.; El-Fadel M. (OXFORDTHE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2004)
    This paper presents a case study in simulating leachate generation and transport at a 2000 ton-day landfill facility and assesses leachate migration away from the landfill in order to control associated environmental ...
