Sapling growth and recruitment as affected by flooding and canopy gap formation in a river floodplain forest in southeast Texas
I used sapling population data collected since 1980 to investigate how canopy disturbance interacts with chronic understory disturbance to determine regeneration patterns. I reconstructed flooding history using a combination ...
Derivation of an infinite-dilution activity coefficient model and application to two-component vapor-liquid equilibria data
Infinite-dilution fugacity coefficients were obtained for the binary system fluorene/phenanthrene at thirteen temperatures by fitting total pressure across the entire mole fraction range by a computer routine. A thermodynamically ...
Numerical simulation of reactive flow and transport through the subsurface
Convection-dominated fluid transport problems have long resisted accurate and cost-effective numerical solutions. The near hyperbolic nature of the problem causes spurious oscillations in most numerical schemes or avoiding ...
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$\sb2$) ...
Interaction of active sites in pool boiling heat transfer
Heat transfer studies were performed on saturated carbon tetrachloride under natural convective and nucleate boiling conditions. A flat, polished, stainless steel plate was the heat source; and degassed, spectroscopic grade ...
The measurement and application of free gas volumes in a gas-liquid chromatographic column methane K-values and liquid molar volumes in the methane-n-octane system
The purpose of this research was to investigate an experimental method for determining the free gas volumes in a gas-liquid chromatographic column. Methane K-values and liquid molar volumes in the methane-n-octane system ...
