NEW RESEARCH ARTICLE: Determination of Density and Viscosity of Binary Mixtures of Water and Dimethyl Sulfoxide with 1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium Diethylphosphate [EtMeIm]+[Et2PO4]− at Atmospheric Pressure

[:en]In the past few years, the global interest in the use of environmentally sustainable resources has increased. Therefore, the biopolymers, and more specifically cellulose, have received most of the attention in the search for new natural, biodegradable, and renewable resources. However, cellulose, due to its complex structure, is not easily processed because it is not […]

New method to connect Aspen Plus with Ansys Fluent CFD simulations

Traditional CFD simulations have been limited by the calculation of thermodynamic properties for uncommon compounds or non-ideal operating conditions. A method of integration of Aspen Plus®, a commercial process engineering simulator, and Ansys Fluent®, a CFD simulator, has been developed. The method of integration is based in the intercommunication of both programs using Matlab® and […]

CFD Modelling – Development of computational tools for modeling the behavior of supercritical water oxidation reactions working under hydrothermal flame regime

      Supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) is an useful technology for the destruction of waste. In presence of hydrothermal flames (yes, a flame in aqueous media!) complete oxidation of organics is achieved in less than 1 s. The properties of water above its critical point (374◦4 C, 22.1 MPa) make possible the destruction of […]
