Investigating the flow structures in semi-cylindrical bubbling fluidized bed using pressure fluctuation signals

Abstract Hydrodynamic characteristics of a gas-solid semi-cylindrical fluidized bed was experimentally investigated and compared with that of a cylindrical bed by analysis of pressure fluctuations. Pressure […]

Investigating bubble dynamics in a semi-cylindrical gas-solid fluidized bed

Abstract Bubble dynamics (i.e., bubble shape, bubble size, bubble rise velocity) and bed voidage in a semi-cylindrical gas-solid fluidized bed at various superficial gas velocities and […]

Effect of interparticle force on gas dynamics in a bubbling gas-solid fluidized bed: A CFD-DEM study

AbstractThe influence of cohesive interparticle force (IPF) on gas dynamics in a bubbling gas-solidfluidized bed was numerically investigated while the bed hydrodynamics was described with thehelp […]

Microfluidic devices with gold thin film channels for chemical and biomedical applications

Abstract Microfluidic systems (MFS) provide a range of advantages in biomedical applications, including improved controllability of material characteristics and lower consumption of reagents, energy, time and […]

Identification of Base Stock in Engine Oils by Near Infrared and Fluorescence Spectroscopies coupled with Chemometrics

Abstract: Engine oils are produced with a blend of almost 80% (w/w) base oils and 20% (w/w) of different additives. This study investigates, for the first […]

Effect of ZDDP concentration on the thermal film formation on steel, hydrogenated non- doped and Si-doped DLC (2016), Appl. Surf. Sci.

Abstract This work focuses on the ZDDP concentration (1, 5 and 20 wt%) to form a ZDDP film on surfaces during static thermal tests at 150 […]

Evolution of the nano-scale mechanical properties of tribofilms formed from low-and high-SAPS oils and ZDDP on DLC coatings and steel (2015), TRIBOL INT

Abstract The evolution of the nano-mechanical properties of tribofilms formed in steel/steel, steel/a-C:H and steel/Si-DLC contacts lubricated with two commercial oils containing different amounts of SAPS […]

Evolution of chemical and mechanical properties of the tribofilms on steel and DLC surfaces with fully formulated oils at different sliding times

Abstract The chemical and mechanical properties of the tribofilms have an important effect to friction and wear in boundary lubrication. Previous studies have been carried out […]
