Modeling of mass transfer and fluid flow in perfusion bioreactors
Tissue engineering is an emerging field with the aim to produce artificial organs and tissues for transplant treatments. Cultivating cells on scaffolds by means of bioreactors is a critical step to forming the organ or ...
Minimizing Planter Fan Exhaust Velocity to Reduce Environmental Effects
Vacuum fans are a critical component of planters used to draw seeds to a rotating perforated disc for precision sowing. As seeds adhere to the disc it is possible for the coatings to become dislodged, pass through the ...
Development of a Fast Gas-Solid Flow Simulation for Control of the Pneumatic Conveying System on Air Seeders
Limitations of the pneumatic conveying system are an obstacle to the improvement of air seeding technology. Operators often run conveying velocities far above the minimum requirement. This is common because lower conveying ...
