Transport-reaction processes are extensively present in chemical engineering practice. Typically, these processes involve phase equilibria and/or are combined with well-mixed processes. Examples include counter-current two-phase contactors, interconnected CSTR-PFR systems and distillation...
Catalytic reactors have widespread applications in chemical and petrochemical industries. The most well known type of catalytic reactors are fixed-bed or packed-bed reactors where the reaction takes place on the surface of the catalyst. One of the most important phenomena that takes place in a...
Boundary value problems involving continuous flow reactors have been considered in which tubular reactors have been modeled with an axial dispersion model. Concentration distribution in tubular reactors can have variety of consequences. It can have negative effects on the conversion and...
The presence of alternans, which is a persistent alternation in the cardiac action potential duration, has been linked to the onset of ventricular arrhythmia, which may lead to sudden cardiac death. In this thesis, we examine the problem of alternans annihilation in a 1D cable of cardiac cells...
