Primer sets were developed from 85 Coffea arabica sequences in addition to 25 already published primer sets. They were subsequently used for amplification in six African Coffea species: Coffea canephora (CAN), Coffea eugenioides (EUG), Coffea heterocalyx (HET), Coffea liberica (LIB), Coffea sp. Moloundou (MOL) and Coffea pseudozanguebariae (PSE). The(More)
An interspecific cross (BC 1) involving a species with one of the largest genomes in the Coffea genus [ Coffea heterocalyx (HET), qDNA = 1.74 pg] and a species with a medium-sized genome [ Coffea canephora (CAN), qDNA = 1.43 pg] was studied using two types of molecular markers, AFLP and SSR. One hundred and eighty eight AFLP bands and 34 SSR primer pairs(More)
Particulate fouling generally arises from the continuous deposition of colloidal particles on initially clean surfaces, a process which can even lead to a complete blockage of the fluid cross-section. In the present paper, the initial stages of the fouling process (which include single-particle deposition and reentrainment) are first addressed and current(More)
In this paper, we investigate the deposition of nanosized and microsized particles on rough surfaces under electrostatic repulsive conditions in an aqueous suspension. This issue arises in the general context of modeling particle deposition which, in the present work, is addressed as a two-step process: first particles are transported by the motions of the(More)
The paper deals with the description of particle deposition on walls from a turbulent flow over a large range of particle diameter, using a Langevin PDF model. The first aim of the work is to test how the present Langevin model is able to describe this phenomenon and to outline the physical aspects which play a major role in particle deposition. The general(More)
In this paper, the reentrainment of nanosized and microsized particles from rough walls under various electrostatic conditions and various hydrodynamic conditions (either in air or aqueous media) is numerically investigated. This issue arises in the general context of particulate fouling in industrial applications, which involves (among other phenomena)(More)

This article analyzes the status of two classical one-particle probability density function (PDF) descriptions of the dynamics of discrete particles dispersed in turbulent flows. The first PDF formulation considers only the process made up by particle position and velocity Z(p)=(x(p),U(p)) and is represented by its PDF p(t; y(p),V(p)) which is the solution(More)
