A non-iterative pressure based algorithm which consists of splitting the solution of momentum energy and species equations into a sequence of predictor-corrector stages was developed for the simulation of transient reacting radiating flows. A semi-discrete approach called the Method of Lines (MOL) which enables implicit time-integration at all splitting stages was used for the solution of conservation equations. The solution of elliptic pressure equation for the determination of pressure field was performed by a multi-grid solver (MUDPACK package). Radiation calculations were carried out by coupling previously developed gray and non-gray radiation models with the algorithm. A first order (global) reaction mechanism was employed to account for the chemistry. The predictions of the algorithm for the following test cases: i) non-isothermal turbulent pipe flow and ii) laminar methane-air diffusion flame; were benchmarked against experimental data and numerical solutions available in the literature and the capability of the code to predict transient solutions was demonstrated on these test cases. Favorable agreements were obtained for both test cases. The effect of radiation and non-gray treatment of the radiative properties were investigated on the second test case. It was found that incorporation of radiation has significant effect on Temeprature and velocity fields but its effect is limited in species predictions. Executions with both radiation models revealed that the non-gray radiation model considered in the present study produces similar results with the gray model at a considerably higher computational cost. The algorithm developed was found to be an efficient and versatile tool for the timedependent simulation of different flow scenarios constitutes the initial steps towards the computation of transient turbulent combustion

A non-iterative pressure based scheme for the computation of reacting radiating flows
Uygur, A. Bilge; Selçuk, Nevin; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı (2008-03-01)

A semi-discrete approach called the Method of Lines (MOL) which enables implicit time-integration at all splitting stages was used for the solution of conservation equations.

DETERMINATION OF THE RELAXATION SPECTRUM FROM OSCILLATORY SHEAR DATA
ORBEY, N; DEALY, JM (1991-08-01)
In order to use either a linear or nonlinear model of viscoelasticity to calculate the stress response of a material to various deformations, it is usually necessary to have available an explicit equation for the linear relaxation modulus G(t). The most popular procedure is to use the data from a small-amplitude oscillatory shear experiment to determine the parameters of a generalized Maxwell model. However, this is an ill-posed problem and is not at all a straightforward curve-fitting operation. We comp...
MODELING PERMEATION OF MODIFIED ATMOSPHERE GAS-MIXTURES THROUGH A LOW-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE PACKAGE FILM
ILTER, M; OZILGEN, M; ORBEY, N (Wiley, 1991-01-01)
Permeation of individual gases through a low density polyethylene package film with CO2-N2 and CO2-O2-N2 mixtures was simulated with a simple mathematical model. Permeabilities of carbon dioxide were of the order of 10(-12) m3/s m2atm/m with CO2-N2 systems. Including oxygen in the system did not change carbon dioxide permeabilities. Permeabilities of oxygen were of the order of magnitude of 10(-9) m3/s m2atm/m with this system. When a CO2-O2-N2 mixture was humidified no substantial change was observed i...
Immobilization of tyrosinase in polysiloxane/polypyrrole copolymer matrices
Arslan, Ahu; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2006)
Immobilization of tyrosinase in conducting copolymer matrices of pyrrole functionalized polydimethylsiloxane/polypyrrole (PDMS/PPy) were achieved by electrochemical polymerization. The polysiloxane/polypyrrole/tyrosinase electrode was constructed by the entrapment of enzyme in conducting matrices during electrochemical copolymerization. Maximum reaction rate (Vmax) and Michaelis-Menten constant (Km) were investigated for immobilized enzyme. Enzyme electrodes were prepared in two different electrolyte/solven...
Pyrolysis mass spectrometric analysis of copolymer of polyacrylonitrile and polythiophene
Oğuz, Gülcan; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2004)
In the first part of this work, the structural and thermal characteristics of polyacrylonitrile, polyacrylonitrile films treated under the electrolysis conditions in the absence of thiophene, polythiophene and the mechanical mixture and a conducting copolymer of polyacrylonitrile/polythiophene have been studied by pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. The thermal degradation of polyacrylonitrile occurs in three steps; evolution of HCN, monomer, low molecular weight oligomers due to random chain cleavages a...
