By Evangelos Tsotsas,Arun S. Mujumdar
The five-volume sequence presents a finished assessment of all very important points of drying know-how like computational instruments at varied scales (Volume 1), glossy experimental and analytical strategies (Volume 2), product caliber and formula (Volume 3), strength discount rates (Volume four) and method intensification (Volume 5).
Based on high-level state-of-the-art effects contributed by means of across the world famous specialists within the numerous handled fields, this ebook sequence is the final word reference within the region of commercial drying. situated on the intersection of the 2 major methods in sleek chemical engineering, product engineering and technique platforms engineering, the sequence goals at bringing idea into perform to be able to enhance the standard of high-value dried items, retailer power, and minimize the prices of drying processes.
Volume 4 bargains with the aid of power call for in numerous drying procedures and components, highlighting the subsequent themes: strength research of dryers, effective solid-liquid separation innovations, osmotic dehydration, warmth pump assisted drying, zeolite utilization, sunlight drying, drying and warmth therapy for sturdy wooden and different biomass assets, and sludge thermal processing.
Other Volumes and Sets:
Volume 1: assorted version kinds for the drying of goods and the layout of drying approaches (short-cut tools, homogenized, pore community, and non-stop thermo-mechanical techniques) are handled, in addition to computational fluid dynamics, inhabitants balances, and method structures simulation instruments. Emphasis is wear scale transitions.
Volume 2: includes experimental equipment utilized in quite a few industries and in study which will layout and keep watch over drying procedures, degree moisture and moisture distributions, signify particulate fabric and the inner micro-structure of dried items, and examine the habit of particle structures in drying gear. Key themes comprise acoustic levitation, near-infrared spectral imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray tomography, and positron emission tracking.
Volume 3: Discusses how wanted homes of meals, biomaterials, energetic pharmaceutical parts, and fragile aerogels may be preserved in the course of drying, and the way spray drying and spray fluidized mattress tactics can be utilized for particle formation and formula. equipment for tracking product caliber, resembling technique analytical expertise, and modeling instruments, reminiscent of Monte Carlo simulations, discrete particle modeling and neural networks, are offered with genuine examples from and academia.
Volume 5: devoted to procedure intensification by means of extra effective distribution and movement of the drying medium, foaming, managed freezing, and the appliance of superheated steam, infrared radiation, microwaves, strength ultrasound and pulsed electrical fields. technique potency is handled together with the standard of delicate items, corresponding to meals, for numerous hybrid and mixed drying processes.

This ebook covers a variety of purposes and makes use of of simulation and modeling thoughts in polymer injection molding, filling a visible hole within the literature of layout, production, and using plastics injection molding. The authors support readers remedy difficulties within the complicated keep an eye on, simulation, tracking, and optimization of injection molding techniques.
The hunt for substitute resources of power to offset diminishing assets of straightforward and cost effective fossil fuels has develop into an international initiative, and gas generated from biomass is a number one competitor during this enviornment. Large-scale creation of biofuels into the strength combine might give a contribution to environmentally and economicaly sustainable improvement on an international scale.
This identify encompasses a variety of Open entry chapters. Carbon trap and garage (CCS) refers to a collection of applied sciences and techniques for the mitigation, remediation, and garage of commercial CO2 emissions, the main impending and virile of the greenhouse gases (GHG). The booklet addresses the equipment and applied sciences presently being utilized, built, and such a lot short of additional examine.
Simulated relocating mattress know-how is considered one of just a couple of books completely devoted to SMB. It goals to equip you with the instruments and abilities wanted for SMB modelling, simulation, layout and operation. the speculation awarded is supported by way of real-world examples from the petrochemical, sugar and pharma industries.
