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 ...
Hydrodynamic mechanisms of cell damage in microcarrier bioreactors
A stirred microcarrier bioreactor contains a variety of local fluid dynamic environments, including isotropic turbulence, boundary layers, and vortices trailing from the impeller blades, all of which are superimposed on a ...
Simulation of oxygen transport in capillaries
A mathematical model is developed to predict oxygen transport from large capillaries. The model includes diffusion and convection in the plasma and rbc and the reaction in the rbcs. It also includes the radial distribution ...
Contact angle hysteresis and the energy principle
Experimental evidence suggests that contact angle hysteresis is related, in some cases, to surface roughness or heterogeneity on a microscopic scale. This work investigates the effect of periodic roughness or heterogeneity ...
A method for improving equations of state near the critical point. (Volumes I and II)
This thesis develops better methods of predicting the thermodynamic properties of both pure components and fluid mixtures in the critical region. Accurate nonanalytic equations of state have been developed for carbon ...
Simulation of viscous fingering during miscible displacement in nonuniform porous media
Numerical simulation is used to study the effect of different factors on unstable miscible displacement and to clarify the mechanisms of finger growth and interaction. The two-dimensional equations of miscible displacement ...
