Influence of pyrolysis conditions on macropore structure of char particles
A systematic analysis of the structure of char particles produced from an Illinois #6 coal was carried out. Coal particles were pyrolyzed in a hot-stage reactor under inert (N$\sb2$) and reactive (5% O$\sb2$ / 95% N$\sb2$) ...
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 ...
Pyrolytic Remediation of Soils Contaminated with Heavy Petroleum
Onshore spills of crude oil and petrochemicals from stationary facilities or pipelines are common and can cause serious environmental problems. Current technologies for remediating soils contaminated with heavy petroleum ...
