It can be inferred from the curves in Figures 2 and 3 that the increase in gas weight loss is the result of cracking reactions due to the diffusional resistance to the liquid hydrocarbons produced.
A similar single objective optimization problem was formulated for homopolymerization reactors exhibiting diffusional limitations [4], Minimizing I leads to an increase in the production capacity through a reduction of [t.
As water stress develops, photosynthesis is increasingly reduced by total diffusional limitations, namely total leaf resistance to CO2 diffusion, which in turn results from the product of its two series resistance components, i.
i,pellet] represents the intrapellet diffusional mass flux of species i with respect to a reference frame that translates at the mass-average velocity v [approximately equal to] 0 of the reactive mixture, [v.
Knowing the time each species spends in the mixing channel, we can estimate the time and channel length required for diffusional dispersion downstream of the junctions.
Electrostatic, chemical and diffusional ties may also have to be considered.
11] developed an improved semi-empirical model to account for diffusional limitations in homopolymerizations.
The major objective of this study was to characterize in situ, coordinated changes in photosynthetic capacity, diffusional conductances, (delta) 13C, N concentration and SLA in mountainous environments.
Taking deformation and fracture in turn, he discusses such topics as creep behavior of materials, dislocation motion at elevated temperatures, creep of solid solution alloys, mechanisms of grain boundary sliding, the diffusional growth of creep cavities, nucleation and the growth of wedge-type microcracks, predicting creep rupture life, and environmental damage at high temperature.
There were no intraparticle diffusional resistance for their catalysts of the average particle size of 660 [micro]m.
Volume I is devoted to diffusional transformations, with sections on nucleation, growth and interphase boundary structure, spinodal decomposition and ordering, banite and diffusion-displacive transformations, recrystallization and grain boundaries, discontinuous and cellular reactions, massive transformation, and driven transformations.
This gradually evolves into a two-time constant response as a diffusional component becomes apparent.
The diffusional description of transport is strongly deterministic: all relevant aspects of the system through which transport takes place are described by the proportionality constant k, which is the conductivity in case of porous flow.
