  • Analysis of shear-induced platelet aggregation and breakup 

    Hellmuth, Rudolf; Bruzzi, Mark S.; Quinlan, Nathan J. (Springer, 2015-07-31)
    To better understand the mechanisms leading to the formation of thrombi of hazardous sizes in the bulk of the blood, we have developed a kinetic model of shear-induced platelet aggregation (SIPA). In our model, shear rate ...
  • Modeling the influence of potassium content and heating rate on biomass pyrolysis 

    Trubetskaya, Anna; Surup, Gerrit; Shapiro, Alexander; Bates, Richard B. (Elsevier, 2017-03-14)
    This study presents a combined kinetic and particle model that describes the effect of potassium and heating rate during the fast pyrolysis of woody and herbaceous biomass. The model calculates the mass loss rate, over a ...
