The effect of process conditions on coal pyrolysis and char reactivity
The effect of process conditions on coal pyrolysis and char reactivity is systematically studied using the thermogravimetric reactor equipped with in-situ video microscopy imaging (TGA/VMI). This system provides a complete ...
Modeling and simulation of monolith reactors
Monolith reactors are studied with models and simulations, with particular attention given to the catalytic converter. It is found that previously noted differences between one- and two-dimensional monolith reactor models ...
Migration of anchorage-dependent mammalian cells
Cell migration affects many physiologic and pathologic processes in mammalian organisms. Thus, our ability to modulate these processes depends on understanding how cell migration is controlled by soluble factors, cell-substrate ...
The application of digital image analysis techniques to studies of lymphocyte function
Video microscopy and digital image analysis methods were developed for studying immune cell function. Firstly, fluorescence energy transfer spectroscopy was used to monitor the evolution of the intercellular contact area ...
Ignition of coal and char particles: Effects of pore structure and process conditions
This study reports the results from experimental and theoretical studies aimed at elucidating the effects of particle pore structure and process conditions on the ignition of coal and char particles. A novel reactor combining ...
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 ...
