Computer program design for land treatment systems Academic Article uri icon


  • Municipal Sludge Land Application eXpert System (MuSLAXS) is an expert system developed for site assessment and design analysis of municipal sludge application on agricultural land. The system has knowledge concerning the technical and regulatory aspects of sludge land application and understanding of soil-plant systems for South Carolina. It can be effectively used outside South Carolina with modifications to incorporate specific regulations on land treatment and soil and crop database. A database supports this expert system and provides appropriate default values for sludge and soil characteristics, and fertilizer recommendations for crops commonly grown in South Carolina. During the design analysis, if the user does not have required information, the system displays and uses appropriate default value.
