Reactor Modeling of a Non-Catalytic OCM Process
Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2005, Pages 3-14

  ge-newline"> One method for conversion of methane to more valuable products is by non-catalytic gas-phase oxidative coupling of methane (OCM), through which methane is converted into ethylene. The product of this process is ethylene, accompanied by acetylene, ethane, a small quantity of three carbon ...  Read More

Semi-Continuous Cultivation of Photosynthetic Cells in a Flat Plate Photobioreactor
Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2005, Pages 15-21

  From an engineering point of view, the effect of light intensity distribution on the stability of growth rate should be taken into account in designing effective photobioreactors and sustaining stable growth rates. In the experiments described here, in order to keep operational parameters at an almost ...  Read More

Numerical Simulation of the Hydrodynamics of a Two-Dimensional Gas—Solid Fluidized Bed by New Finite Volume Based Finite Element Method
Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2005, Pages 22-36

  n this work, computational fluid dynamics of the flow behavior in a cold flow of fluidized bed is studied. An improved finite volume based finite element method has been introduced to solve the two-phase gas/solid flow hydrodynamic equations. This method uses a collocated grid, where all variables are ...  Read More

The effect of wall strengtheners on the performance of double-stage electrostatic precipitators
Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2005, Pages 37-48

  The presence of wall strengtheners in double-stage electrostatic precipitators affects gas velocity, electrical field and particle movement over the ESP. In this work we have used our previous mathematical model for double-stage ESP {Talaie et. al (2001) [10]] to study the effect of wall strengtheners ...  Read More

Decolorization of Distillery Wastewater by UV irradiated spores of Aspergillus fumigatus
Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2005, Pages 49-55

  An efficient microbial technique for decolorizing distillery wastewater was achieved using irradiated spores of Aspergillus fumigatus. The fungus was isolated from soil samples taken from the local distillery processing unit. By using the irradiated spores, wastewater decolorization increased by 14.3% ...  Read More

Some investigations on PHA production using activated sludge as inoculum
Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2005, Pages 56-63

  This paper indicates that activated sludge under certain conditions can achieve levels of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) accumulation which would enable the economic recovery of this precursor of biodegradable plastics. The effects of C/N ratio and temperature on polyhydroxyalkanoates production were evaluated. ...  Read More

CFD Simulations of Pressure Drop in KATAPAK-S Structured Packing
Volume 2, Issue 2 , April 2005, Pages 64-71

  KATAPAK-S is a type of structured catalytic packing, which is used in reactive distillation processes. The dry pressure drop characteristic (the pressure drop in the absence of liquid flow) is of significant importance for the investigation of process hydrodynamics. In this paper, the dry pressure drop ...  Read More
