Steady state distillation calculations: An investigation of computer techniques and an examination of results
This work has been divided into two parts. The first is concerned with methods of computation suitable for use with digital computers for distillation problems with one feed and two product streams. Two methods were ...
Condensing heat transfer within horizontal tubes
The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of vapor velocity, temperature difference and fluid properties upon the heat transfer coefficient of a vapor condensing within a horizontal tube. Condensing heat ...
Vapor-liquid equilibria in the system hydrogen-nitrogen-carbon monoxide
Vapor-liquid equilibrium compositions for the system hydrogen-nitrogen-carbon monoxide were determined at -310°F, and -280°F and -240°F from 300 psig to the critical. PVT data for hydrogen were fitted to the ...
Effects of the decay of sulfur-35 on some electrical properties of cadmium sulfide semiconducting films
The vacuum behavior of radioactive and non-radioactive semiconducting films of CdS has been studied as a function of time in order to determine the effect of radioactive doping. Radioactive films containing S35 were made ...
Low temperature vapor-liquid equilibrium in light hydrocarbon mixtures: Methane-ethane-propane system
Experimental equilibrium data have been determined for 175 mixtures of methane, ethane, and propane. The investigation included temperatures from 50°F to -200°F and pressures up to the critical. A vapor recycle ...
A study of alumina silicon fluoride combinations as hydrocarbon conversion catalysts
The purpose of this work was to study the influence of certain variables in the preparation of an alumina-silicon-fluoride complex on its behavior as a cracking catalyst.
The compressibility factors and second virial coefficients for helium-nitrogen mixtures at low temperature and high pressure
The Burnett method was used to determine the volumetric behavior of helium, nitrogen, and six evenly spaced helium-nitrogen mixtures at low temperature and high pressure. Compressibility isotherms were determined for both ...
Structure, wettability, and barrier properties of self-assembled monolayers on metallic surfaces
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) offer a convenient approach for fabricating molecularly tailored interfaces with well-defined compositions, structures, and thicknesses. SAMs have been suggested for use as corrosion barriers, ...
Engineering palladium-on-gold bimetallic nanoparticles as groundwater remediation catalysts
Over the years, our groundwater sources have become contaminated with chlorinated organics, in particular trichloroethene (TCE) due to its exposure as a solvent to degrease metals and electronic parts in the automotive, ...
Effects of irradiation on the catalytic activity of metal oxides
This work further develops a technique for changing the electronic and defect structure of magnesium oxide and silica gel catalysts. Relatively small doses of ultraviolet and neutron irradiation have been found to enhance ...
