Thermal Characterization and Model Free Kinetic Application on a Tar Sand Sample
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2015-01-01)
In the first part of this research, kinetic software was developed for the evaluation of kinetic parameters using nonisothermal thermogravimetry data. Different computational methods were used and applied to a set of experimental and simulated data distributed in the ICTAC (International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry) kinetics project. The reliability of the software was verified by comparing the kinetic results and it was observed that the results were in good agreement. In the second ...
Thermal characterization and model-free kinetics of biodiesel sample
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2015-11-01)
In this study, combustion and pyrolysis behaviours of methanol route biodiesel were investigated using thermal analysis techniques known as simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) at different heating rates. Reaction regions, peak temperatures, mass loss and heat flow rates of the biodiesel sample are determined using TG-DTG and DSC data. It was found that as the heating rate of the reactions increased, peak temperatures of the reactions shifted higher temperatures, implyin...
Thermal analysis and kinetics of biomass samples
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2013-02-01)
In this research, combustion behavior of agricultural residues known as miscanthus, poplar wood, and rice husk was investigated using thermal analysis techniques. Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and thermogravimetry (TG-DTG) techniques were used. Combustion experiments were performed at five different heating rates (5, 10, 15, 25, and 50 degrees C/min). The reaction regions, ignition and burnout temperatures, heat flow rate values of biomass samples are determined. Activation energy of the biomass s...
Thermal characterization of different origin class-G cements
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2014-02-01)
In this study, thermal characteristics and kinetics of three different origin class-G cements (Mix, Bolu, and Nuh) were studied using thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential scanning calorimeter (DSC). In DSC curves at different heating rates a number of peaks were observed consistently in different temperature intervals. TG/DTG is used to identify the detected phases and the corresponding mass loss. In the dehydration kinetic study of the different origin class-G cement samples, three different methods ...
Thermal characterization, combustion and kinetics of different origin crude oils
Gundogar, Asli S.; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2014-05-01)
In this research, the combustion behavior of six Turkish crude oils (light and medium type) was investigated by thermogravimetry/derivative thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) methods under atmospheric air in the absence of rock matrix. Two main reaction intervals were observed on all thermograms known as low temperature oxidation (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) regions. The resulting curves showed that the mass loss under combustion is accompanied by exothermic ...
