Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


A study was conducted to directly measure the rate of rinse process and chemical removal from structures on typical patterned waters. Results indicate that the reduction of water usage during rise needs to be optimized to achieve the best results for the overall water and energy conservation strategy.
