[Paper] Prediction of residence time distributions in supercritical hydrothermal reactors working at low Reynolds numbers

This work presents a methodology to characterise continuous hydrothermal flow systems both experimentally and numerically, working at low Reynolds numbers. Under these conditions traditional computational approaches in the field are of limited use, so new tools are in demand. Residence time distributions (RTD) experiments are carried out using a purpose built continuous flow rig featuring […]

Prof. Rafael Mato invited to a Thesis Defense at the Delft University of Technology (Netherlands)

Thanks to his reknowned expertise in the field of microwave technology, Prof. Rafael Mato was invited as a member of a Thesis committe at the Delft University of Technology (Netherlands) on July 7th 2015. The Thesis, called  “Application of microwave heating to a polyesterification plant” and defended by  M. Komorowska, investigated three different microwave-assisted processes: a liquid-phase […]

[Open source software] Equations of State

We present a set of MATLAB programs for the calculation of phase equilibrium and other thermodynamic properties using different equations of state (classical cubic equations, cubic equations with excess Gibbs energy mixing rules, group contribution equations and SAFT equations). All  programs are open-source and have been designed to be easily reusable using an object-oriented programming […]
