Process Heat Exchanger Network Integration and Decomposition via Clustering Approach
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a novel method for process heat exchanger network integration and decomposition: Clustering Approach. The objective of this new approach is to reduce the complexity of the integrated structure, construction and maintenance cost simultaneously. The main idea of this approach is to divide the original system into two or more clusters (subsystems) under several optimisation constrains such as piping and other investment cost, hot and cold stream matches. The results of utilities and investment cost for both original and clustered system are compared. The outcome of this study indicates effectiveness, potential and further application of the novel method.

Could the clinical interpretability of subgroups detected using clustering methods be improved by using a novel two-stage approach?Kent, Peter; Stochkendahl, M.; Christensen, H.; Kongsted, A. (2015)Background: Recognition of homogeneous subgroups of patients can usefully improve prediction of their outcomes and the targeting of treatment. There are a number of research approaches that have been used to recognise ...

An Unsupervised Acoustic Description of Fish Schools and the Seabed in Three Fishing Regions Within the Northern Demersal Scalefish Fishery (NDSF, Western Australia)Gastauer, B.; Scoulding, B.; Parsons, Miles (2017)Fisheries acoustics is now a standard tool for monitoring marine organisms. Another use of active-acoustics techniques is the potential to qualitatively describe fish school and seafloor characteristics or the distribution ...
