Computer Technology in Service
Computer technology leads to more precise processing equipment sizing and rating methods. To account for the local flow and temperature conditions, heat exchangers are designed with high-precision prediction methods and complex numerical techniques. Fouling mitigation is just evolving from an art to a technology based on science. Without reliable fouling prediction methods and mitigation techniques that can be integrated into the design phase, the real benefits of sophisticated design codes will not be achieved. Recent developments in computer technology offer an opportunity to use fouling data scattered in the literature, industry logbooks, and reports productively. A long-term objective for the industry is to develop a knowledge-based system with the minimum impact of water fouling for the design and operation of heat exchangers. The main difficulties in developing a knowledge-based system are as follows:
- Fouling data compilation and organization
- Easy access by research organizations as well as industry
- Development of a logic scheme for the analysis of the fouling data
- Acceptance of such knowledge-based systems industrially
In the literature, the fouling data and observations mentioned are often inadequately used. The compilation and organization of fouling information are major tasks and challenges for research organizations and industries in order to use these data effectively. Compared to other engineering fields, this challenge is more important for the fouling-mitigation technology. It is difficult to believe that for a given set of parameters that can be used to predict the rate of fouling or evaluate the threshold fouling conditions, there will be a single correlation. For a given set of conditions, one has to depend on the best possible method to minimize fouling. Either mitigation methods are overused, with high chemical costs, or underused, with high maintenance and production costs, in the absence of this information. Perrakis introduced a methodology to compile the fouling data in the literature. To accomplish such a major challenge for data compilation and organization, a major cooperative effort is needed. The fouling data and tests must be accompanied by physical and chemical parameters without which the information has little value.
In information technology, the next step is to develop a logic system to use the database to interpret the findings. The Faltin. A potential alternative to the use of a so-called expert method for choosing a fouling control technique was discussed. However, it is important to establish a knowledge-based framework to access and interpret the fouling information before such an expert system can be created. As shown in Fig., the reasoning for knowledge-based systems can be organized. 19. 19. The device is a computerized tool to assist the engineer with the best possible approach to design and operate the heat exchanger that can be used to minimize fouling.
At an unprecedented pace, computer technology is speeding ahead. Almost weekly, new computers and updates of current ones are available, each with extra capabilities to offer. On a circuit board with much greater processing power, the physical size of a device that once filled a wide room has been reduced to a small integrated circuit module. The lightweight, high-speed computing capability is best suited for aircraft use and is used in many respects. A single sophisticated computer that incorporates those functions and many more can easily replace individual computers currently being used for systems such as flight controls, navigation, air data, and threat detection. This new technology is definitely the one that, in both the short and long term, would have the most far-reaching impact on crew systems.
Processing Power Provides Endless Benefits
Almost every part of VE is influenced by computer technology. VE screens originally looked like “fly-through” films that actually replicated traditional endoscopy. Although “fly-throughs” are still used today, modern techniques for VE that are not available for a traditional endoscope have been developed by computer processing methods. Examples of such instruments include navigation aids to incorporate cross-sectional images with the VE image, automatic flight planning centerline computation, colon unraveling to promote polyp recognition, cockpit displays to provide greater visual coverage of the lumen wall and eliminate blind spots, and reading assistance systems for computer-aided detection (CAD). These instruments improve the visualization of VE displays beyond traditional endoscopy’s otherwise very narrow viewing scopes. In the following pages, processing methods are checked in progress, such as centerline extraction, surface unfolding, registration, stool tagging and virtual colonoscopy removal, and CAD.
Computer Aided Design
Computer technology includes an entirely distinct engineering design methodology. It has revolutionized the speed and efficacy of the functions of plastic design. The further the entire design function is analyzed, the more repetitive activities in that function are discovered. The ability of the machine to perform these tasks untiringly and with a blazing pace is the cornerstone for these improvements in productivity.
The machine continues to provide the engineer with the means to automate and refine a design more efficiently in terms of time and expense. It offers a deeper understanding of a product design’s operational criteria, resulting in optimizing the productivity of the design in meeting product requirements. The computer is able to turn a specification into a produced product that offers a faster start-up of output. Additional advantages emerging from computer technology include
- Ease of creating new innovative concept concepts and applying them,
- In sketches, fewer errors;
- Strong contact with the producer,
- Improved precision in manufacturing; and
- A quicker response to demand from the sector.
