Design modifications of the RFP element can reduce or virtually eliminate such feed velocity changes. A preferred embodiment of the invention utilizes a novel option inherently provided by the RFP to internally “stage” a single element. Accordingly, two, three or more membrane envelopes of different lengths can be wound about a single core tube yielding multiple stages as the feed volume decreases along its spiral path (see, e.g., Examples III and IV, infra).

Random Vibration is a linear model, so the material model that is used during the RV solution is only linear elastic, and no plasticity is used even if it is in the material definition. You understand that any region that exceeds yield stress will release stress by plastic deformation in the real part, though that will not be represented in the RV simulation. With refer to this article, it seems that I have to use APDL command to perform surface operation for nominal stress.

In 1994, two new arbitrary quadrilateral membrane elements called GQ12 and GQ12M with vertex rotation were proposed by Long and Xu , resulting in more reasonable compatible conditions between adjoining elements and a more simple formulation. The membrane elements are among the simplest elements to develop, which are used for analyzing structures subjected to in-plane forces. The membrane elements are usually used to model the behavior of shear wall, stiffened sheet construction, and membrane action in shells. Some plane elements can be considered as membrane elements, such as the CST element and the four-node isoparametric quadrilateral plane element . In finite element methods, many plate bending elements also have been developed. Bazeley et al. developed the confirming and nonconfirming plate bending elements in 1966.

Once the static calculation has been approved by the building authorities, the construction drawings are prepared. Particularly with regard to design elements, these have to be coordinated with the planner and client. In contrast to conventional constructions, the weight of the material (approx. 1-1.5 kg/m²) is negligible.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICABILITY As described above, the present invention has high industrial applicability since it has a feature enabling the reuse of the membrane element and the like. As an example of the microporous filtration membrane 1, a Yumicron membrane manufactured by Yuasa Corporation, which has a number of micro pores with average pore size of 0.4 μm, can be used. The microporous filtration member 1 having such average pore size is called as a microfiltration membrane according to the definition of JIS K 3802. The aforesaid plate 2 as used is made of an acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer resin. Providing each microporous filtration membrane 1 on the plate 2 in tension is achieved by joining the peripheral part of the plate 2 to the microporous filtration membrane without fusing the nonwoven fabric acting as the substrate 11. 2, when pressed by a linear-shaped hot plate disposed along the positioning line 21, the plate 2 is softened to have a recess, into which the microporous filtration membrane 1 is drawn, as represented by arrows.

In the beginning of the installation process a plan has to be developed how to install this special membrane. This should already be part of the engineering process in order to get the right fixing points as well as the mountable size of the membrane pieces. Installation of pneumatically or mechanically tensioned structures requires special expert knowledge and experience.

A hot plate having a shape corresponding to the peripheral shape of the resinous filtration plate is brought into contact with a peripheral smooth surface of the plate so as to form a recessed part in the surface. The temperature of the hot plate is regulated so as to be not higher than the melting point of the nonwoven fabric serving as the support and not lower than the Vicat softening temperature of the filtration plate made of a thermoplastic resin. The thermoplastic-resin filtration plate is pressed with this hot plate through the microporous filter membrane to bond it to the membrane. The fundamental principle of Nanofiltration membrane’s technology is the use of pressure to separate soluble ions from water through a semi permeable membrane. Filmtec RO elements separate salts from water and are produced with an automated fabrication process for precision, consistency, and reliability offering high rejection of dissolved solids and organics and operate very efficiently at lower pressures. These Thin Film-Commercial RO membranes have a hard shell exterior making them suitable and recommended for systems with multiple-element housings containing three or more membranes, as they are designed to withstand higher pressure drops.

You should understand that the results from a RV analysis are statistical quantities. The results are 1 sigma or 3 sigma levels, therefore, you should not use the word “peak” when referring to RV results. That means you expect the values of stress at the location of the maximum to be less than the 3-sigma value 99.865% of the time, but a small percentage of the time, 0.135%, the stress could exceed the 3-sigma value. However, this method is common in static analysis but I am not sure if it is suitable for dynamics analysis , particularly for random vibration. Currently, the max stress observed in Random Vibration exceeds yield.

The barrier layer (“skin”) sides of the membrane pairs face each other in channels a and c, with spacers not shown, and channel b for permeate is defined by the opposite sides of the membrane pairs. The feed stream flows axially into one end of the open membrane channels a and c wherein a portion of the feed permeates the membrane skin into the adjacent permeate channel b and the remaining feed exits through the opposite axial end of the membrane channels. The permeate flows inward to the core tube at right angles to the feed, and spirals down to ultimately leave the spiral winding through the porous core tube and out of the element. To direct the flow path as described, the membrane and spacer leaves are sealed at the indicated places represented by shaded areas in FIG. Thus it may be seen that the permeate channel b is sealed on all sides except at the openings in the porous core tube. Seals at the core tube between permeate and feed-concentrate channels illustrated in FIG.

A membrane element is usually located in a three-dimensional space, so its orientation may be in any directions. For convenience, the membrane element is commonly studied in the local Cartesian coordinate system represented by and located on the membrane element. Once a quantity is formed in the local system, it can be transformed to the global coordinate system. Our innovative printed spacers can optimize flow patterns and turbulence through the membrane element, minimizing the entrapment of particulates and organic fouling. This optimization leads to better cleaning and longer element life, as opposed to traditional membrane spacers that trap particles and biofilm within the spacer mesh thereby obstructing flow. Synder can create custom spiral wound elements and provide membrane development services for specific application processes upon request.

7a are seals for each membrane at the core tube to prevent lateral mixing of permeate and feed-concentrate. 6 is a diagrammatic representation of a conventional spiral element of the prior art in an exaggerated “unwound” state intended to illustrate the flow direction of the feed-concentrate and permeate in such elements. Channels a and c are feed-concentrate channels with b the permeate channel.
