Simulation of Water Coning in Oil Reservoirs Using a Corrected IMPES Method
Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2008, Pages 3-11

  Implicit pressure-explicit saturation method (IMPES) is widely used in oil reservoir simulation to study the multiphase flow in porous media. This method has no complexity compared to the fully implicit method, although both of them are based on the finite difference technique. Water coning is one the ...  Read More

A Study on Liquid-liquid Mixing in a Stirred Tank with a 6-Blade Rushton Turbine
Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2008, Pages 12-22

  The turbulent flow field generated in a baffled stirred tank was computed by large eddy simulation (LED) and the flow field was developed using the Sliding Mesh (SM) approach. In this CFD study, mixing times and power number have been determined for a vessel agitated by a 6-blade Rushton turbine. The ...  Read More

Study on Trend of Biodegradability of Phenolic Compounds During Photo-Fenton Advanced Oxidation Process
Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2008, Pages 23-32

  Phenolic acids constitute a major group of pollutants which are recalcitrant to common biological treatment. In this study synthetic wastewater containing a mixture of p-coumaric and p-hydroxybenzoic acids was evaluated for photo-Fenton pretreatment. The changes in biodegradability (ratio of biochemical ...  Read More

Performance of Membrane Bioreactor in Removal of Heavy Metals from Industrial Wastewater
Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2008, Pages 33-38

  Membrane technology is one of the few non-pollutant choices when selecting a treatment process. A membrane with suitable pore size can remove almost all pollutants without using any chemicals. In this research, chromium, zinc and lead were removed from synthetic wastewater by a membrane bioreactor. The ...  Read More

Predicting Solubility of Isotactic Poly (1-Butene) in Different Organic Solvents by Modified UNIQUAC
Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2008, Pages 39-48

  The UNIQUAC activity coefficient model is extended to predict solid-liquid equilibrium of isotactic crystalline poly (1-butene), iPBu-1, in different organic solvents. The UNIQUAC activity coefficient model used in this work is based on the concept of group contribution and consists of combinatorial, ...  Read More

Determination of Adsorption Isotherm for L-Lysine Imprinted Polymer
Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2008, Pages 49-55

  The optimization of adsorption-based operations requires an accurate model to represent the separation process. In the present study, single-component adsorption data of L-lysine on its imprinted polymer were fitted to Freundlich, Langmuir-type and Jovanovic-type models. L-Lysine imprinted polymer (LLIP) ...  Read More
