A simplified model of spontaneous combustion in coal stockpiles
Abstract As part of a comprehensive study into the self heating of large coal stockpiles, a simplified one-dimensional model has been developed. The model consists of three differential equationsExpand

The attainable region and optimal reactor structures
Abstract Given a system of reactions and associated kinetics and assuming only the processes of reaction and mixing, one may derive, for variables which obey linear mixing laws, geometrically basedExpand

Column Profile Maps. 1. Derivation and Interpretation
The use of ordinary differential equations as a shortcut technique for the description of distillation columns has been well established over the last 3 decades. Residue curve maps (RCMs) have beenExpand

Classification of Chemical Processes: A Graphical Approach to Process Synthesis To Improve Reactive Process Work Efficiency
To reduce carbon dioxide emissions for chemical processes, one should make them as reversible as possible. Patel et al. [Ind. Eng. Chem. Res. 2005, 44, 3529−3537] showed that, in some cases, one canExpand

Spontaneous combustion of carbonaceous stockpiles. Part II. Factors affecting the rate of the low-temperature oxidation reaction
Abstract In part I of this paper, the rate of the low-temperature oxidation reaction was found to be critical in determining the relative tendency of a carbonaceous material to self heat and henceExpand

Combined static and dynamic mutability analysis
We present an approach to discovering parameter reference immutability, in which several lightweight, scalable analyses are combined in stages, with each stage refining the overall result. Expand
