The effect of shear on the thermal conductivity of non-Newtonian fluids
This work considers the effect of shear on the thermal conductivity of non-Newtonian fluids. These fluids display a variation of viscosity as a function of shear rate, and this study determines whether the thermal conductivity ...
Real-time implementation of an intelligent diagnostic and control system for bioreactors
Bioprocesses often require considerable expertise to insure proper operation and performance. However, they are also rich in both data and factual knowledge. Supervision and control can be improved by utilizing information ...
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 ...
Application of back-propagation neural networks to the modeling and control of multiple-input, multiple-output processes
Certain properties of back-propagation neural networks have been found to be useful in structuring models for multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) processes. The network's simplicity and its ability to identify the ...
Instabilities in heated falling films: A full-scale direct numerical simulation
A thin liquid layer draining on a heated inclined plane is susceptible to long surface waves, and can either form waves and stay continuous or go through a rupture process leading to the formation of rivulets. It is of ...
