Fundamental mechanisms of coal pyrolysis and char combustion
Coal pyrolysis and combustion have been systematically investigated at high temperatures where external and intraparticle transfer limitations become important. A thermogravimetric reactor equipped with in-situ video imaging ...
Transient heat and mass transfer in two monolith reactor passage geometries
Transient two dimensional mass and energy balance models of a monolith reactor are formulated and solved using a combination of analytical and numerical algorithms. The reactor passage has three distinct phases: the void ...
Change in cell motility and metabolism following culture under low shear conditions
Recent studies suggest that the human immune system, and in particular lymphocyte function, may be suppressed during space flight. However, the mechanisms by which mechanical forces affect the function of immune cells are ...
