Wear-related reliability issues, especially slurry erosion has become one of the principal concerns for the process industries that use slurry pipelines for coarse particle transport. The study and development of an appropriate wear model for slurry pipelines is, therefore, essential from the...
Fluidized beds offer efficient solutions for segregation of clay and bitumen pellets in the oil production industry. However, the hydrodynamics of these systems is not well-known and they are mostly operated as ``black box''. The removal of clay pellets in the mechanical separation of oil sands...
As common human computer interfaces(HCIs), touchscreen panels (TSPs) have been ubiquitously adopted in our daily life especially in the consuming electronics, and numerous industrial applications. However, force information has been a missing part in conventional TSPs, drawing limitations in the...
Utilization of Semiconductors Piezoresistive Properties in Mechanical Strain Measurements under Varying Temperature Conditions for Structural Health Monitoring ApplicationsDownload
Strain gauges have been powerful tools in experimental stress analysis. This importance is expected to continue, even though other means of strain measurement are continually introduced to the market. The strain gauge is a simple device that can be easily installed to measure mechanical strain....
Experimental Investigation of Carbon Black Properties Produced by the Thermal Decomposition of Methane in the Products of Premixed FlamesDownload
The thermal decomposition of methane is a technique used to manufacture hydrogen gas and carbon black. The physical properties of carbon black produced by the thermal decomposition of methane (TDM) in the O2-deficient gas products of two premixed flames (propane- or methane-air) were investigated...
Atmospheric Spray Freeze-Drying on Common Biologics and Excipients as a Comparison to LyophilizationDownload
Atmospheric spray freeze-drying (ASFD) is an alternative freeze-drying process to conventional vacuum freeze-drying. ASFD involves spray-freezing biologics of interest in a feedstock into a cold freezing chamber. Cold drying gas passes through the chamber at a high flow rate to sublime the water...
Locomotor activity in mammals is generated by neural networks known as central pattern generators (CPGs), which are comprised of interneurons located in the ventral regions of the spinal cord. Recently, molecular genetic characterization of transcription factor expression at early embryonic time...
The objective of this thesis was to develop a novel understanding of the mechanics of two phase gas-liquid flows and sprays injected through industrial effervescent nozzles. This was done using detailed experimental investigations and scaling for two-phase flows and sprays. This study helps to...
Particulate matter emitted from two direct injection engines has been characterized by morphology, volatility, mass-mobility exponent, effective density, and size distribution using tandem measurements from a centrifugal particle mass analyzer (CPMA) and differential mobility analyzers (DMA). The...
