The circulation of granular fabrics comparable to sand, snow, coal, and catalyst debris is usual prevalence in average and commercial settings. The mechanics of those fabrics isn't really good understood. they're very important due to the fact that a wide fraction of the fabrics dealt with and-processed within the chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, and foodstuff processing industries are granular in nature. This publication describes the theories for granular movement established commonly on continuum versions even if replacement discrete types also are mentioned in short. the extent is suitable for complex undergraduates or starting graduate scholars. The objective is to notify the reader approximately saw phenomena, a few on hand types, and their shortcomings and to go to a few concerns that stay unresolved. there's a number of difficulties on the finish of the chapters to motivate exploration, and large references are given

This quantity comprises invited papers and communications provided on the 3rd ecu Workshop assembly on Selective Oxidation by way of Heterogeneous Catalysis. the aim of the assembly used to be to offer contemporary effects and to debate new elements of partial oxidation via heterogeneous catalysis. the subsequent subject matters have been mentioned: Novel strategies for acquiring new nice chemical substances by way of catalytic partial oxidation; selective oxidation and oxidative dehydrogenation of alkanes; new catalysts and advances in practise equipment of oxidation catalysts; new phenomena in partial oxidation and new facets of floor chemistry in oxide catalysts; new functions of physicochemical equipment for characterization of oxide catalysts; oxidation with different brokers than oxygen and catalytic oxidation of carbohydrates.
A revised version of a textual content on unit operations of chemical engineering, this paintings comprises up to date and new fabric reflecting partly the broadening of the chemical engineering career into new components comparable to nutrients processing, electronics and biochemical purposes. As in past variations, separate chapters are dedicated to all the 4 precept unit operations - fluid mechanics, warmth move, equilibrium levels and mass move, and operations concerning particulate solids - and comprises insurance of adsorption, absorption and membrane separation.

Let us first discuss the case p = 0. The flow rate obtained using the bare hopper, shown by the square in Fig. 10b, is about seven times lower than the value obtained using the hopper–standpipe combination. The reason for the enhanced flow rate in the latter case can be understood by examining the profiles of the pressure of the interstitial air. Fig. 11. Profile of the dimensionless pressure p of the interstitial air for (a) the point on the upper branch of the curve shown in Fig. 4: ◦, data of Chen et al.

(b) Variation of the dimensionless mass flow rate V with the dimensionless pressure rise p ≡ pb − pa for the flow of sand: ◦, data of Chen et al. (1984); —, curve drawn to guide the √ eye. Here pa and pb are the dimensionless air pressures. The mass flow rate is scaled by ρp ν0 π r 2p g r p and the pressure by ρp ν0 g L, where ρp is the particle diameter, g is the acceleration due to gravity, r p and L are the inner radius and length of the pipe, respectively, and ν0 is the solids fraction of a moving bed of particles.
Let us select the configuration of the body at some time t0 as a reference configuration. Consider a Cartesian coordinate system in the laboratory frame. With respect to this coordinate system, the material point P in the reference configuration A (Fig. 27) corresponds to the position vector X. The components X 1 , X 2 , and X 3 of X are called the material coordinates of the material point P. Thus material points can be uniquely identified by the corresponding position vectors in the reference configuration or equivalently, by their material coordinates.
