Determination of the Equilibrium Parameters of Gaseous Detonations Using a Genetic Algorithm
Volume 5, Issue 3 , July 2008, Pages 3-13

  The present work is concerned with the development of a new algorithm for determination of the equilibrium composition of gaseous detonations. The elements balance equations, and the second law of thermodynamics (i.e., the minimization of the Gibbs free energy of products), are used to determine the ...  Read More

Dissolving Pulp (alpha-cellulose) from Corn Stalk by Kraft Process
Volume 5, Issue 3 , July 2008, Pages 14-28

  Corn stalk can be used as an alternative non-wood raw material to produce cellulosic dissolving grade pulp. In this work, the potential of corn stalk in the production of dissolving pulp (alpha-cellulose) was investigated. It was collect ed from a corn stalk farm of Kermanshah, Iran. The sequences of ...  Read More

Multi-objective Genetic Optimization of Ethane Thermal Cracking Reactor
Volume 5, Issue 3 , July 2008, Pages 29-39

  An industrial ethane thermal cracking reactor was modeled assuming a molecular mechanism for the reaction kinetics coupled with material, energy, and momentum balances of the reactant-product flow along the reactor. To carry out the multi-objective optimization for two objectives such as conversion and ...  Read More

Removal of H2S from Synthetic Waste Gas Streams Using a Biotrickling Filter
Volume 5, Issue 3 , July 2008, Pages 40-51

  The removal of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from airstreams was studied in a biotrickling filter packed with porous lava as a carrier of Thiobacillus thioparus (DSM5368) with counter current flows of the air and liquid streams. The effect of operating parameters on biotrickling filter performance was studied. ...  Read More

The Modified Lennard-Jones and Devonshire Equation of State
Volume 5, Issue 3 , July 2008, Pages 52-61

  Lennard-Jones-Devonshire equation of state is an old but theoretical based EOS. The concept of the nearest neighboring molecules or coordination number is proposed to be a function of temperature and volume, whereas it is a constant in the original. The dilute gas and hard sphere limits of molecules ...  Read More

Levels of PM10 and its Chemical Composition in the Atmosphere of the City of Isfahan
Volume 5, Issue 3 , July 2008, Pages 62-67

  Airborne particulate matter (PM10 ) was collected from the atmosphere of the city of Isfahan. The concentration of heavy metals and anions associated with airborne particulate matter were determined using atomic absorption spectrometric and ion chromatographic techniques. A comparison was made between ...  Read More
