Determining The Quality Of Mine Gushing And Mixed Water Using Coupled AHP And Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation Methods

Abstract This study focused on analysis of the chemical characteristics of mine waters. The aim of this study is to correlate the degree of different ionic components in mine water and the influence of their convergence using a combination of the three-scale AHP and fuzzy evaluation methods for the comprehensive evaluation of water quality. Ion chromatography (ICS 1100) has been used to analyze the content of the water sample while portable pH/EC/TDS/Temperature meters (SX 811 and SX 81...
