    Abstract: The final closure veneer for municipal solid waste landfills must be designed to withstand an allowable annual soil loss from wind erosion over its design life. Veneer sensitivity to wind erosion depends on a multiplicity of intertwined variables. A Fuzzy Analytical Hierarchy Process (FAHP) is used to evaluate weightings for specific forcing functi...

    Abstract: In the process of microwave-assisted rock breaking, there are many factors that affect the rock breaking effect, among which the particle size distribution of minerals has an important influence. In this paper, the samples composed of common minerals calcite and pyrite in rocks were used as the research object, and six kinds of mineral particle siz... Show More
