How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Developed and crafted in Madagascar, the Raseta pump is a novel hydraulic ram (hydram) pump using a springs system. It operates differently from other pumps by the exclusive use of water energy due to the water hammer phenomenon induced by the sudden stop of the water flow. The present study initiates the investigation of the environmental impacts...
Water pumps, which usually require fuels or power, are for carrying water from water sources to a facility, generally a household or a farm in the countryside. The present study consists of conducting an experimental validation of a mathematical model that was developed in a previous work for simulating the functioning of a new form of the hydrauli...
Due to their polluting characteristics, fossil fuels presently tend to be replaced by renewable energy resources. Anaerobic digestion is a recent technology for producing biofuels. As a biochemical method to produce biogas, it is more environmentally friendly than other processes and is almost non-polluting. The anaerobic co-digestion is an upgrade...
A new type of hydraulic ram pump, called "Raseta pump", was invented, patented and crafted in Madagascar. The peculiarity of this hydram pump over conventional ones is that there is a spring in each of the waste and delivery valves. In addition, the usual air balloon is replaced by a balloon with 4 springs. Thus, this paper aims at theoretically st...
