Prediction of just suspended speed for mixed slurries at high solids loadings

One design heuristic used to determine the just suspended speed, N-js, for mixed slurries assumes that the mixture N-js is dominated by the particle phase with the maximum N-js. This approach does not incorporate the effect of the second solid phase. Two new models are proposed to predict the mixture N-js: the power model and the momentum model. These models determine the mixture N-js using the sum of the power or the sum of the momentum required to suspend the individual solid phases. The models were tested using experimental data for two impellers, a Lightnin A310 impeller and a 45 degrees pitched-blade turbine. A range of off-bottom clearances, and six mixtures of solids up to 27 wt% solids loading completed the data set. The power model accurately predicts mixture N-js for both impellers over the full range of clearances and up to 27 wt% mixtures. (c) 2012 The Institution of Chemical Engineers.

Calculation of the P-T phase diagram of nitrogen using a mean field model
Enginer, Y.; Algul, G.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2017-12-20)
The P-T phase diagram is calculated at low and moderate pressures by obtaining the phase line equations for the transitions considered in nitrogen using the Landau phenomenological model. For some transitions, a quadratic coupling between the order parameters is taken into account in the expansion of free energies in terms of the order parameters. A quadratic function in T and P is fitted to the experimental P-T data from the literature and the fitted parameters are determined.
Measurement of the differential inclusive B+ hadron cross sections in pp collisions at root s=13TeV
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2017-08-01)
The differential cross sections for inclusive production of B+ hadrons are measured as a function of the B+ transverse momentum p(T)(B) and rapidity y(B) in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, using data collected by the CMS experiment that correspond to an integrated luminosity of 48.1 pb(-1). The measurement uses the exclusive decay channel B+ -> J/psi K+, with J/psi mesons that decay to a pair of muons. The results show a reasonable agreement with theoretical calculations within the uncer...
Determination of critical submergence depth at horizontal intakes under asymmetric flow conditions
Göğüş, Mustafa; Köken, Mete; Haspolat, Emre (2015-07-03)
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the hydraulic conditions of air-entraining vortices under asymmetrical flow conditions and derive a general expression to determine the critical submergence depth required for the formation of these vortices at horizontal intake pipes. A series of experiments were conducted in a model composed of a concrete reservoir and intake pipe which was mounted horizontally to the reservoir. Three pipes of different diameters were tested with adjustable plexiglass sid...
A non-linear mathematical model for dynamic analysis of spur gears including shaft and bearing dynamics
Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 1991-3)
A six-degree-of-freedom non-linear semi-definite model with time varying mesh stiffness has been developed for the dynamic analysis of spur gears. The model includes a spur gear pair, two shafts, two inertias representing load and prime mover, and bearings. As the shaft and bearing dynamics have also been considered in the model, the effect of lateral-torsional vibration coupling on the dynamics of gears can be studied. In the non-linear model developed several factors such as time varying mesh stiffness an...
Design and performance evaluation of mixed flow pumps by numerical experimentation and axial thrust investigation l
Cirit, Ali; Albayrak, Kahraman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
In this thesis a vertical turbine mixed flow pump that has a flow rate of 40 l/s and 16 mwc head at 2900 rpm is designed. Effect of design parameters are investigated and flow inside the pump is analyzed with the help of numerical experimentations. The designed pump is manufactured and tested in Layne Bowler Pumps Company and completed in TÜBİTAK - TEYDEB project. Pump is designed in the tolerance limits that are defined in the standard TS EN ISO 9906. Numerical experimentation results for performance chare...
