Effect of isotherm shape on mass transfer in an adsorbent particle; An isothermal adsorption process
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2011)
The mass diffusion equation and corresponding initial and boundary conditions were non-dimensionalized for a spherical adsorbent particle in an infinite adsorptive medium to reduce number of independent governing parameters ...
Heat transfer reduction due to a ceiling-mounted barrier in an enclosure with natural convection
(Taylor & Francis, 2011)
Effects of a ceiling-mounted barrier on natural convection heat transfer in a square cavity with differentially heated wall are numerically investigated. A limit case, in which the partition has small thickness and low ...
Comparison of uniform and non-uniform pressure approaches used to analyze an adsorption process in a closed type adsorbent bed
Heat and mass transfer in an annular adsorbent bed filled with silica gel particles is numerically analyzed by uniform and non-uniform pressure approaches. The study is performed for silica gel-water pair, particle radius ...
A dimensionless analysis of heat and mass transport in an adsorber with thin fins; uniform pressure approach
A numerical study on heat and mass transfer in an annular adsorbent bed assisted with radial fins for an isobaric adsorption process is performed. A uniform pressure approach is employed to determine the changes of temperature ...
Effect of aspect ratio on entropy generation in a rectangular cavity with differentially heated vertical walls
In the present study, entropy generation in rectangular cavities with the same area but different aspect ratios is numerically investigated. The vertical walls of the cavities are at different constant temperatures while ...
A parametric study on isobaric adsorption process in a closed adsorbent bed
A numerical study on heat and mass transfer in an annular adsorbent bed filled with adsorbent granules for an isobaric adsorption process is performed. In order to reduce the number of independent parameters that influences ...
