The kinetics of human platelet aggregation and disaggregation in controlled shear fields
The objectives of this research are to contribute to a better understanding of human platelet involvement in vascular disease. To accomplish this, both the laser light scattering technique and the population balance equation ...
Phase equilibrium, dynamic behavior and detergency in surfactant systems
Various model systems containing pure compounds of oil, water, and surfactant were studied to understand equilibrium phase behavior and nonequilibrium phenomena, especially their relationship to solubilization-emulsification ...
Isochoric PVT studies of binary fluid mixtures: The hydrogen-methane and methane-methanol systems
The isochoric PVT behavior of two binary fluid mixtures has been studied over extensive ranges of temperature and pressure. Emphasis in both experimental investigations was on definition of single-phase compressed liquid ...
Renormalization group theory for percolation and application to transport properties of random media
A renormalization group method in real space is applied to the study of transport properties of random media. In particular, the method is applied to the study of the electrical properties of disordered materials and the ...
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 ...
Application of back-propagation neural networks to system identification and process control
Certain properties of the back-propagation neural network have been found to be potentially useful in structuring models for process control applications. The network's relative simplicity and its ability to learn by example ...
