Study of Light Wavelength Dependency in Red-Orange Spectrum on Continuous Culture of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803

H. Abedin

Volume 16, Issue 4 , October 2019, Pages 3-11


  In this study, the effect of light wavelength on growth rate and lipid production of Synechocystis was investigated. Continuous cultivation system was used to have uniform cell density and avoid self-shading in order to obtain more precise results. Based on previous studies, red light is more efficient ...  Read More

Modeling of Nanofiltration of Low Concentration Pb(II) Aqueous Solutions Using a Coupled Concentration Polarization and Pore Flow Model

S. Fadhil

Volume 16, Issue 4 , October 2019, Pages 12-22


  In this paper, the performance of nanofiltration membrane process in removing Pb(II) from aqueous solution was modeled by the pore flow-concentration polarization model. The model was fabricated based on the simultaneous resolving of Extended Nernst–Planck equation(ENP), film theory, and osmotic ...  Read More

CFD Simulation of Methane Steam Micro-Reformer: Channel Design and Inlet/Outlet Configuration

H. Mohammadnezami; A. Irankhah

Volume 16, Issue 4 , October 2019, Pages 23-35


  Micro-reformers used for producing hydrogen with a high surface-to-volume ratio in small-scale fuel cells were investigated. To this end, scrutinizing and exploiting all areas of micro reformers is very important. Parallel micro-channels have shown good performance in eliminating dead volumes. Inlet/outlet ...  Read More

Cooling Enhancement of a Photovoltaic Panel Through Ferrofluid Stimulation Using a Magnetic-Wind Turbine

N. Heidari; M. Rahimi; N. Azimi

Volume 16, Issue 4 , October 2019, Pages 35-52


  Wind energy is used to rotate a magnetic turbine in order to remove heat from the surface of a photovoltaic (PV) panel. A three-bladed turbine, which rotates with wind energy, has rotational motion underneath the studied PV panel in order to move Magnetic Nano-Particles (MNPs). In addition, effects of ...  Read More

Synthesis and Characterization of Waterglass-Based Silica Aerogel Under Heat Treatment for Adsorption of Nitrate from Water: Batch and Column Studies

E. Tohfegar; J.S. Moghaddas; E. Sharifzadeh; S. Esmaeilzadeh-Dilmaghani

Volume 16, Issue 4 , October 2019, Pages 53-72


  In this work, hydrophobic silica aerogels were synthesized using sol-gel method and drying at ambient pressure. The surface morphology, pore size, and the presence of functional groups on the surface of the nanoparticles were analyzed using FE-SEM, TGA, FT-IR, and EDX, respectively. After calcination ...  Read More
