Career Summary

Biography

Professor Geoffrey Evans has been actively involved in fundamental and applied research into multiphase systems over the last 30 years. During that time he has worked on a wide range of projects which have concentrated on free surface phenomena and phase interaction between bubbles, particles and the liquid and gas phases. Specifically, his research has typically focused on bubble formation and growth, bubble nucleation, bubble breakup and coalescence, two phase flow, mixing and agitation, emulsions, and plunging and submerged jets. Hi research has also included surface forces, particle-particle and bubble-particle interactions, as applied to a number of particle technology applications. 

Professor Evans' research has involved a combination of experimental measurement, theoretical modelling and computational fluid mechanics, and has been applied to a number of practical applications. High speed particle image velocimetry, thermal imaging and computational fluid dynamics, direct numerical simulation and discrete element modelling are some of the techniques currently being applied. In all cases, the outcomes of the work, has been underpinned by firstly understanding the interaction between the phases present and the constraints applied due to the process configuration. Most of my current research deals with the water, mineral and pyro-metallurgical processing, and process industries. 

Awards received include: (1) CSIRO External Medal for Research Achievement, 1990, as a member of the Jameson flotation cell development team. (2) John A Brodie Medal, of the Institution of Engineers, Australia, 2004, for the best paper presented at the annual meeting of chemical engineers in Australia. (3) Best paper award in the category of "Multiphase Flow", at the 10th International Conference on Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, July, 2014, Miami, Florida.

Research Expertise
Professor Geoffrey Evans has been actively involved in fundamental and applied research into multiphase systems over the last 20 years. During that time he has worked on a wide range of projects which have concentrated on free surface phenomena and phase interaction between bubbles, particles and the liquid phase. Specifically, the research has focused on bubble formation and growth, bubble nucleation, bubble breakup and coalescence, two phase flow, mixing and agitation, emulsions, and plunging and submerged jets. More recently, my research has included surface forces, particle-particle and bubble-particle interactions, as applied to a number of particle technology applications.

In 1990 Professor Evans was a recipient of the CSIRO External Medal for Research Achievement, as a member of the Jameson flotation cell development team, which is awarded annually to an individual or research team for significant research achievement that, amongst other factors, makes substantial contribution to Australias industrial development and achieves national objectives. The research carried out by Professor Evans has involved a combination of experimental measurement, theoretical modelling and computational fluid mechanics. In recent years, a particular achievement has been the establishment of an extensive facility at Newcastle incorporating a wide range of laser-based techniques (Laser Doppler Velocimetry, Particle Image Velocimetry, and Phase Doppler Particle Analysis), and high speed digital video, used for quantitative measurements in multiphase systems.

The fundamental research carried out by Professor Evans has also been applied to a number of practical applications. In all cases, the outcomes of the work, i.e. process and equipment modification, has been underpinned by firstly understanding the interaction between the phases present and the constraints applied due to the process configuration. For example, in the explosive emulsions business, the project involved the establishment of scaling rules so that the company could develop a range of systems at very different scales. A pilot scale system was developed and successfully tested using actual explosive media. This work has led to development of two new emulsification technologies offering significant cost reductions. The patent details are: " K.P. Galvin, S.J. Pratten, S. Biggs and G.M. Evans, Emulsion Production, PR4007 (2001). " K.P. Galvin, S.J. Pratten, S. Biggs and G.M. Evans, Emulsion Production with Internal Plate Devices, 31637AUP00 (2001). Similarly, in the chemicals industry Professor Evans has focussed much of his attention on gas dispersion into downflowing liquids. These types of flows are common in draught-tube bubble columns and loop reactors, where the difficulty is that unwanted gas cavities get caught on the spargers and upset the flow patterns. A gas sparging device was invented that prevented the formation of the cavities, resulting in a much more uniform gas dispersion and stable process operation. The patent details are: " G. M. Evans and P.D. Machniewski, Gas Dispersion in Downflowing Liquid Streams, PR5144 (2001). " P.D. Machniewski, A.K. Bin, S. Wronski and G. M. Evans, A method of gas bubble generation in liquids, P354464, Poland, (2002).


Teaching Expertise
I have taught many of the undergraduate chemical engineering courses. I have also delivered specialised courses and seminars in China, Canada and India. In research training, I have successfully supervised over 60 Honours and 10 PhD students. In teaching my focus is on providing a stimulating learning environment to students, and to include material that is relevant to the changing focus of todays professional engineers and scientists. My emphasis has been on creating the link between academia and industry, and highlighting the relevance to the wider community so that students can understand the broader context.

On a national education level, in 2000, academics from the Universities of ANU, Melbourne and Newcastle (including myself) were successful in obtaining a $1,650,000 DEETYA Science Lectureships grant, entitled UniChe: A new way of Teaching Chemistry. This project, part of a new initiative by the Minister for Education to link industry and university, was aimed at attracting both the best undergraduate and postgraduate students into a close association with a major Australian industry (ORICA, Australia Pty Ltd). ORICA provided $100,000 per annum for the project. Attracting the best students was to be achieved by training undergraduates and graduates in a way that gave them an awareness of the short and long term goals of the Australian chemical industry. I have been actively involved in the supervision and administration of postgraduate students at The University of Newcastle since returning from Cambridge in 1991.

Currently, I am either the principal or joint supervisor of eight PhD students. For each student I have an active program of consultation and feedback relating to their progress. Where possible I strongly encourage students to publish their work in refereed journals, and present at national and international conferences. Recognition for my efforts into postgraduate supervision has been: " Nomination for Supervisor of the Year in 1997. " Joint supervisor for a student (Khan) enrolled at the UNSW. " Decision by senior management within CSIRO Division of Minerals to enroll a staff member (Lane) in a PhD program under my supervision rather than going to a Melbourne University. My detailed knowledge of the chemical engineering curriculum was acknowledged by my invitation to review the undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum at Curtin University. More recently, I have taken the role of an IChemE Assessor, with responsibility for accrediting the undergraduate programs throughout Australia. This has involved being part of the assessing panel for the programs offered at James Cook and Adelaide Universities, and being Chairman for the IChemE accreditation panel for the RMIT programs. My experience in undergraduate curriculum development has extended beyond my own field of expertise, in my role as a member (1998-1999) of the University Curriculum Review Committee, which has ultimate responsibility for approval of all undergraduate and postgraduate course and program changes, introduction of new courses and programs, and 5-year program reviews. In 2006 I was the Chairman of the external review of the Bachelor of Biotechnology programs at the University of Newcastle.


Administrative Expertise
My contribution to university governance has been through membership of committees and positions held. At a University level I have contributed to teaching and research policy as an active member of (what were) the Curriculum Review, Research Higher Degrees, Research Management, and CALT Leadership and Management Program Steering Committees. At a Department level I have held numerous positions, including Head of Department for the period 1999-2001. During that time I was responsible for a number of activities, including the professional accreditation of the undergraduate course, and the key appointment of two new academics (Drs Moghtaderi and Franks). In general, my approach has been to provide, where necessary, guidance and support in the research and teaching endeavors of the academic and general staff. My contribution to the wider university while I was HOD included being an invited Panel Member for the New Heads of Department Orientation Program, organised as part of the Academic Career Development Series in 2001. I am currently on the Advisory Board for the Environmental Engineering program at Newcastle. At a Faculty level I have been Assistant Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, Chairman of the Faculty Research Committee, Chairman of Higher Degrees Committee. In each case I have attempted to provide leadership in developing a strategic overview. For example, my involvement with the University Curriculum Review Committee was to raise the importance of teaching and learning in the engineering discipline, which traditionally has been more focused on maintaining its research excellence. I was currently Assistant Dean, Community Relations Marketing for the Faculty, and in this role my focus is on building strategic (educational and research) partnerships with industry, business, community, and government groups. As A/D CR&M, my role also includes building links with overseas teaching and research institutions. To the chemical engineering profession I have contributed in a number of ways. One major example was being Chairman of the 5th International Conference on Gas-Liquid and Gas-Liquid Solid Reactor Eng, which was held in Melbourne in September 2001. The conference was attended by over 200 delegates (mostly international).Other recent involvement in the organisation and running of international conferences include: " Director, International Advisory Committee, 9th Asian Pacific Confederation of Chemical Engineering Conference, Christchurch, New Zealand, Sept 2002. " Member, International Scientific Committee, 1st Conference on Process Innovation and Process Intensification, Edinburgh, Scotland, Sept 2002. " Member, International Scientific Committee, 16th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering CHISA, Prague on 22 - 26 August 2004. " Program Committee Member, 7th World Congress of Chemical Engineering, Glasgow, Sept 2005. " Member, International Scientific Committee, 7th International Conference on Gas-Liquid and Gas-Liquid Solid Reactor Engineering, Strasbourg, France, August 2005. " Member, International Scientific Committee, Fluid Mixing VIII Conference, London, England, April 2006. " Member, International Scientific Committee, 2nd Conference on Process Innovation and Process Intensification, ChristChurch, New Zealand, Sept 2006.

This work investigates the effects of multiple jet interactions and single jet instability on jet breakup and droplet size using experimental and computational techniques. In particular, the jet separation distance, jet breakup length and droplet diameter were measured as a function of initial nozzle separation distance and jet volumetric flow rate. It was found that the two jets moved closer to each other to reach an equilibrium separation distance that was approximately 70% of the spacing between the two nozzles. The distance at which the instabilities were first observed on the surface of the jet was also a function of the initial separation distance. However, it was weakly dependent on the jet velocity. The jet breakup length and resultant droplet diameter were both influenced by flow rate and nozzle separation distance. The jet breakup length was found to decrease with reduction in nozzle spacing at the high flow rates. Interestingly, a linear relationship between droplet diameter and breakup length was found that was largely independent of nozzle spacing and consist with conventional Rayleigh jet breakup theory. The implications of the experimental observations on the design of multi-jet systems are discussed. Furthermore, computational fluid dynamics simulations were also used to identify the mechanism and dynamics of jet instability in the single jet systems. The simulation results were analysed to study the effect of instability on various parameters such as jet breakup, droplet formation and size of emulsion droplets. It was found that at higher volumetric flow rates, the droplets size increased during the jet breakup due to an asymmetric instability. The asymmetric instability was caused by the pressure gradient in the continuous phase and was prevented in double jet systems.

The success of many industrial processes largely depends on the structural characteristics of aggregates. In intensive aerobic digestion process for wastewater treatment applications, the structural characteristics namely aggregate shape, size and therefore the aggregate surface area strongly influence the transfer of dissolved oxygen from the aeration process to aggregates of harmful contaminants/microorganisms. The aim of this study was to apply Discrete Element Modelling (DEM) techniques to the aggregation of suspended particles (microorganisms) to quantify the available surface area for convection and diffusion as a function of particles number concentration and surface charge. The simulation inputs included particle and fluid characteristics such as particle size and density, solid concentration, suspension pH and ionic strength. A post processing method based on the Go-chess concept was developed to quantify the surface area of aggregate structure. The simulation results showed that whilst an increase in connection points increases the total surface area of the aggregate, this does not necessarily translate into an increase in the surface area available for oxygen transfer as combinations of open and close pores are formed. Aggregate surface area was directly determined by aggregate structural characteristics, and increased rapidly when the coordination number was below 3.5 and the fractal dimension was less than 1.5. A correlation for prediction of aggregate external surface area was also proposed as a function of aggregate structural characteristics in terms of fractal dimension and coordination number.

Interfacial water in close proximity to an adsorbed surfactant layer plays an important role in many areas. Here, we systematically investigate the interfacial water structure at the adsorption layer of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) from low concentrations to its critical micelle concentration. Our sum frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy results show that, with increasing CTAB concentration, the water SFG signals first increase, reaching maximum intensities at 0.1 mM, and then drop, whereas the ppp SFG signals of the terminal-methyl asymmetric stretch reach maximum intensities and saturate at 1 mM, which is the critical micelle concentration of CTAB. Our analysis reveals that the interfacial water layer adopts the most orderly arrangement when the interfacial potential of the adsorption layer reaches saturation and not at the surfactant concentration of adsorption saturation. Most importantly, our SFG data provide direct evidence for the antagonistic effects of the interfacial potential and thickness compression of the electrostatic field of the surfactant adsorption layer, leading to the strongest water SFG signals at 0.1 mM. Below 0.1 mM, the increased interfacial potential can have a pronounced effect on the increase of the overall dipole moment of the interfacial water layers. Above 0.1 mM, the decreased Debye screening length significantly reduces the water dipole moment. Finally, the newly proposed adsorption model cannot explain our SFG results.

In almost all mineral flotation systems the particles and bubbles are brought into contact with each other under turbulent flow conditions which although beneficial in promoting particle-bubble collisions, at the same time increase the probability of particle detachment. Often the detachment of a particle is described in terms of a modified Bond number (expressed as ratio of attachment force to detachment force) greater than 1.0 however very few studies include attachment force in the numerical modelling. Acknowledging the dynamic interaction of bubble-particle aggregate in an actual flotation system, in this work, a dynamic model of the particle motion on the bubble interface was developed based on Schulze's theory considering contributions from gravity, buoyancy, pressure force, capillary force and the fluid drag. The purpose of this modelling was to check the consistency of the particle detachment criterion at Bond number greater than 1.0. Transient magnitudes of both the attaching and detaching forces were presented and the resulting temporal variation of the Bond number was reported. It was found that during the process of particle motion, although the Bond number exceeded the limiting value of 1.0, the particle still remained attached to the bubble interface. It appears that the criterion holds good only for a steady state case when the Bond number remains less than 1.0 and not for a dynamic case where the Bond number may exceed 1.0.

Turbulence plays a critical role in detachment process of bubble from a solid surface. To investigate this effect, detachment process of a stationary air bubble from a nozzle in both quiescent and turbulent liquid field was studied. A stationary vertical (flat-ended) needle of ID 1.24mm was used as a nozzle to generate a bubble which was anchored to the needle tip. Different sizes of bubbles were generated in quiescent liquid. Volume and contact angle for these bubbles were measured precisely using microscopic imaging technique and correlated. In the quiescent case experiments, a constant contact angle of 90° and bubble diameter of 3.05±0.004mm were obtained consistently. A simple force balance approach was proposed assuming bubble in equilibrium to determine this maximum bubble diameter during detachment. The detached bubble size calculated using this approach agreed fairly well with the experimental results. An oscillating grid device capable of operating at different frequencies was then applied to generate a homogeneous, near-isotropic turbulent velocity field around the anchored bubble. It was observed that for detachment of smaller bubbles, higher turbulence intensity was indeed necessary. The turbulent flow field was quantified using particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique and resolved into flow structures (eddies) of different length scales using a Gaussian filter. It was concluded that smaller eddies perturbed the bubble interface whilst the larger eddies contributed to weakening of the capillary force causing the bubble detachment. Energy dissipation profile obtained from the PIV images indicated significant energy dissipation near the bubble compared to the bulk fluid which supported the fact that strong interactions between bubble and eddies were indeed responsible for bubble detachment.

Accurate prediction of the interactions between evaporating liquid droplets and solids are critical for many industrially important processes. A model based on coupled Level Set-Volume of Fluid approach was developed to simulate the interaction of evaporating liquid droplets with hot solid surfaces. The model incorporates appropriate source terms in the multiphase calculations to account for the heat and mass transfer. Accurate and stable numerical procedure was developed and incorporated in open source solver OpenFOAM. A brief discussion on the model development along with several key issues that are associated with this process was presented. The resulting numerical model was validated through the experimental data of Chandra and Avedisian (Chandra, S., Avedisian, C.T., 1991. Proc. R. Soc. Lond., Ser. A 432, 13-41). Although some discrepancies were found between the numerical results and experimental data, the model was found to be capable of reproducing the reduced droplet spreading rate as the temperature of the surface is increased away from the saturation temperature. The decrease in rate of surface wetting results from the combined effects of surface tension, viscous forces and evaporation at the liquid-solid-vapour contact line. Further, the effects of increased pressure at the solid-liquid interface resulting from the rapid evaporation of the liquid, which in some cases can be quite severe such that the liquid gets lifted-off from the surface, were also captured, in good agreement with experimental observations. Finally, the effects of the solid temperature on the evaporation and heat transfer rates of the droplets were presented and analysed. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

In a liquid fluidised bed system, the motion of each phase is governed by fluid-particle and particle-particle interactions. The particle-particle collisions can significantly affect the motion of individual particles and hence the solid-liquid two phase flow characteristics. In the current work, computational fluid dynamics-discrete element method (CFD-DEM) simulations of a dense foreign particle introduced in a monodispersed solid-liquid fluidised bed (SLFB) have been carried out. The fluidisation hydrodynamics of SLFB, settling behaviour of the foreign particle, fluid-particle interactions, and particle-particle collision behaviour have been investigated. Experiments including particle classification velocity measurements and fluid turbulence characterisation by particle image velocimetry (PIV) were conducted for the validation of prediction results. Compared to those predicted by empirical correlations, the particle classification velocity predicted by CFD-DEM provided the best agreement with the experimental data (less than 10% deviation). The particle collision frequency increased monotonically with the solid fraction. The dimensionless collision frequency obtained by CFD-DEM excellently fit the data line predicted by the kinetic theory for granular flow (KTGF). The particle collision frequency increased with the particle size ratio (dP2/dP1) and became independent of the foreign particle size for high solid fractions when the fluidised particle size was kept constant. The magnitude of collision force was 10-50 times greater than that of gravitational force and maximally 9 times greater than that of drag force. A correlation describing the collision force as a function of bed voidage was developed for Stp>65 and dP2/dP1=2. A maximum deviation of less than 20% was obtained when the correlation was used for the prediction of particle collision force. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

In this study, microwave irradiation was applied to hanging droplets of both water and ethylene glycol. Once the irradiation had ceased and the droplet was allowed to return to its original temperature, it was found that the surface tension of ethylene glycol returned to its original value. In contrast, the water surface tension remained well below its original value for an extended period of time. Similar observations have been reported for magnetically treated water, but this is the first time that such a lasting effect has been reported for microwave irradiation. The effect can be attributed to the unique hydrogen bonds of interfacial water molecules. While the irradiation intensities used in this study are well above those in household devices, there is certainly the potential to apply the methodology to industrial applications where the manipulation of surface tension is required without the use of chemical addition. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

The maximum liquid fraction that stable pneumatic foam can support is studied in this paper in order to illuminate change of flow regime from turbulent foam flow to the "emulsion regime" in which the distinct interface between the foam layer and the bubbly liquid is lost; this regime transition is nominated as "flooding". With further increases in gas flow rate, large (or "gross") bubbles can appear and rise in the column, the existence of which depends on the absolute pressure at the column bottom. Experiments are carried out using foam stabilized by sodium dodecyl sulfate, and the liquid fraction of both the foam layer and the bubbly liquid are measured using a pressure gradient method. The maximum liquid fraction is found to be at a critical point when the interface between the foam and the bubbly liquid layer disappears. The predicted maximum liquid fraction in the foam is given by e* = (n - 1)/(n + 1), where n is an adjustable constant that depends upon the characteristics of the gas-liquid interface, and the predictions have been experimentally verified. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

Film flotation is highly dependent upon how well wanted and unwanted particles are separated at the gas-liquid free surface. Single particle experiments and modelling analysis can be undertaken to determine a critical impact velocity at which the optimum separation is likely to occur. However, in commercial film flotation systems the higher loading density of the free surface can result in interactions that change the critical impact velocity. To investigate this influence, film flotation experiments have been undertaken with 4, 5 and 6 mm diameter spherical polypropylene particles with water, sucrose and surfactant (CTAB) solutions contained within vessels of varying dimensions and wettability (static contact angle). Experimentally it was observed that for a given particle diameter the critical impact velocity was found to decrease with decreasing vessel diameter, especially when the particle-to-vessel diameter ratio increased beyond about 0.2. Conversely, the critical impact velocity was found to be relatively independent of the liquid depth; but did decrease with decreasing static contact angle in the region where the vessel wall had an influence. The experimental system was also modelled using the Young-Laplace equation using both static and advancing contact angle measurements for both the particle and vessel surfaces. The model predictions were generally in good agreement with the experimental observations, including showing an increase in particle penetration depth with increasing vessel diameter and meniscus profiles, both at the particle impact point and the wall of the vessel. The predictions were improved when the advancing contact angle was used, especially for the smaller diameter vessels where there was more liquid motion. Finally, a model to determine the critical (minimum) diameter of vessel required so that the cavity profile generated by the impacting particle is unlikely to be influenced by the vessel walls is presented. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

A flotation detachment model is developed by considering energy balance in the process. Energies concerned are surface energy increment and kinetic energy supplied by turbulent liquid motion. Surface energy increment is the work of adhesion by surface forces which is reflected by surface tension and contact angle. What makes this model outstanding from other detachment models of energy balance perspective is more accurate account of kinetic energy supplied from turbulent liquid motion. Eddies in the same scale as attached particles are considered accountable for particle detachment in the close vicinity. In this way, detachment probability is written as a function of energy dissipation rate. Predictions from different models are compared to experimental results. It is demonstrated that previous models overestimate the influence from turbulent liquid motion. Notably, with more accurate account of eddies' influence, the new model predicts particle detachment in accordance with experimental results.

In this study the transition from homogeneous to heterogeneous flow in a solid-liquid fluidized bed (SLFB) is examined both experimentally and numerically. The experimental apparatus comprised a refractive index-matched SLFB, comprising 5. mm diameter borosilicate glass and sodium iodine solution, which allowed for both instantaneous particle image velocimetry of the liquid flow field and solids hold-up measurements to be undertaken for superficial liquid velocities in the range of 0.06-0.22. m/s. The motion of individual, spherical steel balls (with diameters 6, 7, 8, 9. mm) was then tracked as it settled through the fluidized bed for differing superficial liquid velocities. It was observed that, for all the steel balls covered in this work, there was a change in slope in their respective classification velocity curves at a superficial liquid velocity of 0.08. m/s. This value was very close to the critical velocity of 0.085. m/s predicted from 1-D linear stability analysis; and therefore deemed to be the critical condition that marked the transition from homogeneous to non-homogenous flow. It is proposed that the change in slope of the classification velocity curve is due to the encounter of the settling foreign particles with liquid bubbles whose presence marks the onset of heterogeneous flow. Additional computational analysis, involving both Eulerian-Eulerian (E-E) and Eulerian-Lagrangian (E-L) approaches, is used to confirm the presence of liquid bubbles at a critical liquid hold-up of 0.54, which corresponds to that predicted from 1-D linear stability analysis. In summary, the study has highlighted that experimentally the transition condition for a SLFB can be obtained simply by observing the behavior of the classification velocity of a single foreign particle at different superficial liquid velocities. This transition condition was found to agree with the 1D linear stability criterion, Eulerian-Eulerian CFD (3D) and Eulerian-Lagrangian DEM (3D) approaches. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

A 3D Discrete Element Method simulation model for a single bubble was developed in order to investigate the capture of hydrophobic particles. The bubble was considered stationary at the centre of the working space. Particle-particle and particle-bubble contacts were simulated using a linear spring-dashpot model. Gravitational, buoyancy, drag and hydrophobic forces were taken into account. The hydrophobic force was estimated through a single exponential decay law which depends on a preexponential parameter K and a decay length ¿ It was observed that when k was less than 10 nm, the number of the particles that were collected was independent of the strength of the hydrophobic force. In contrast, for values of k within the range of 10-500 nm, the capture efficiency increased significantly with the strength of the hydrophobic force and ¿ We have also demonstrated how these two parameters affect the particle trajectory around the bubble and thus produce a significant difference in particle collection when the strength and range of the hydrophobic force were varied.

Volume of fluid and continuum surface force methodologies were applied to two- and three-dimensionally model the motion of a liquid jet injected vertically downward from a rectangular nozzle into another immiscible liquid. Grid independent solutions were obtained for a 10mm2 nozzle with aspect ratios in the range 1-10. It was found that unlike the 3D simulation, the 2D CFD model was not able to predict the necking and breakup features observed in the experimental system. The 3D model showed that upon exiting the rectangular nozzle the liquid jet underwent a transition before becoming circular in cross-section and eventually reaching an equilibrium diameter prior to breakup into droplets. For a given nozzle geometry it was found that equilibrium jet diameter increased with increasing liquid volumetric flowrate, with good agreement between CFD simulations and experimental observations. The 3D model was applied to rectangular nozzles with different aspect ratios and it was found that for a given liquid flowrate there was an optimum aspect ratio for generating minimum-sized droplets, which was approximately 30% less than for a circular nozzle with the same cross-sectional area. © 2011 Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering.

Particle image velocimetry measurements have been performed in a solid-liquid fluidized bed in the Reynolds number range 51-759. To do this, the refractive indexes of the solid and liquid phases were matched at approximately 1.47 using 3. mm diameter borosilicate glass beads and a solution of turpentine and tetra-hydronaphthalene. Paraffin oil was added in varying quantities to vary the dynamic viscosity between 0.0012 and 0.010. Pa. s without changing the refractive index of the solution. From the PIV measurements, at sampling rates of 2. Hz, the fluctuating velocity components were found to be quite uniform in both the axial and radial directions. Moreover, the computed turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rates were also found to be relatively constant throughout the bed, thus highlighting the homogenous nature of the turbulence within the system.Following from Reddy et al. (2010b), direct numerical simulations were undertaken at particle Reynolds numbers up to 200 for assemblages of 1, 9, 27, 100, 180 and 245 particles, which corresponded to a liquid volume fraction range of 0.687p¿Lp0.998. The effect of surrounding particles on the settling velocity (hindrance effect) and the wake dynamics was investigated. It was found that the average settling velocity decreased with an increasing number of particles, with the quantitative results being in good agreement with the well established empirical correlation of Richardson and Zaki (1954). The local energy dissipation rate was also computed, and for a particle Reynolds number of 51, it was found to be 5.5m2s-3. This value was approximately 18 times the average energy dissipation rate of 0.30m2s-3; and compared favourably with the 0.36m2s-3obtained by a volume-averaged energy balance of the experimental system. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Electroflotation is used in the water treatment industry for the recovery of suspended particles. In this study the bubble formation and release of hydrogen bubbles generated electrolytically from a platinum cathode was investigated. Previously, it was found that both the growth rate and detachment diameter increased with increasing wire diameter. Conversely, current density had little effect on the released bubble size. It was also found that the detached bubbles rapidly increased in volume as they rose through the liquid as a result of decreasing hydrostatic pressure and high levels of dissolved hydrogen gas in the surrounding liquid. The experimental system was computationally modelled using a Lagrangian-Eulerian Discrete Particle approach. It was revealed that desorption of gaseous solutes from the electrolyte solution, other than hydrogen, may have a significant impact on the diameter variation of the formed bubbles. The simulation confirmed that liquid circulation, either forced or induced by the rising bubble plume, influences both the hydrogen supersaturation (concentration) in the neighbourhood of the electrode and the size of the resulting bubbles.

This study experimentally investigates the application of a solid-liquid micro-fluidised bed as a micro-mixing device. The experiments were performed in a borosilicate capillary tube with an internal diameter of 1.2. mm (i.e. near the upper-limit dimension of a micro-fluidic system) using borosilicate particles with a mean diameter of 98 µm. Refractive index matching technique using sodium iodide solution was employed to achieve a transparent fluidised bed. Mixing performance of the micro-fluidised bed in terms of mixing time was investigated using a dye dilution technique. Experiments were carried out in the creeping flow regime at Reynolds numbers ranging between 0.27 and 0.72. It was demonstrated that the micro-fluidised bed mixing time sharply decreases as the Reynolds number increases. That is because at relatively high Reynolds numbers, the particle oscillation is stronger creating larger disturbances in the flow. The energy dissipation rate in micro fluidised bed was estimated to be four orders of magnitude less than other passive micro mixers which operate in the turbulent regime. It was also demonstrated that the ratio of mixing time and the energy dissipation rate for fluidised bed micro-mixer was comparable to K-M, Tangential IMTEK, and interdigital micro-mixers. However, the fluidised bed micro-mixer was found to operate at much lower Reynolds numbers compared to other passive mixers, with a mixing time of the order of few seconds. © 2013 The Institution of Chemical Engineers.

A model for estimating world natural gas production to peak in 2043 has been developed and takes into account the conventional natural gas production peak by 2038, the world unconventional natural gas production peak in 2038 as well the decline in methane hydrate. The model approximates coalbed methane while natural gas demand is modeled by analyzing demand per person and population forecasts. Estimating the worldwide coalbed methane resource and the determination of a reasonable recovery factor yields he coalbed methane unconventional ultimately recoverable resources (URR) estimate. Another input comes from the determination of conventional natural gas URR estimate. The model estimates that methane hydrate resources are about 1,000 tcm.

This paper presents an analysis on the dynamic adsorption of frothers and collectors onto air bubbles in flotation. The analysis was carried out using the theory on the surfactant transfer by diffusion and adsorption. The bubble size was considered when solving the diffusion equation for the dynamic surface excess. The adsorption kinetics was modelled employing the Langmuir adsorption isotherm and its extension with the inclusion of the lateral interaction of the adsorbed molecules (the Frumkin adsorption isotherm). The numerical computation was applied to solve the governing equations. The dynamic adsorption of the surfactants was measured in terms of the dynamic surface tension for sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS) and Dowfroth 250, using pendant bubble tensiometry. The results show that for air bubbles with diameter of the order of 1 mm, the bubble size effect on the dynamic surface tension is small and the solution of the diffusion equation for a planar gas-liquid surface can be used to describe the dynamic adsorption onto the air bubbles. The experimental data obtained with SDBS were well described by the Frumkin adsorption isotherm and the molecular diffusion. The model description for the experimental data obtained with Dowfroth 250 required the kinetic equations. The paper is relevant for further analysis of the role of the adsorbed surfactants in the particle collection.

The second stage of an undergraduate laboratory experiment based on the concepts of compressible flow was described. The second stage of the experiment involved discharging vessel to atmosphere through a converging nozzle and recording the pressure-versus-time relationship for the process. The discharging vessel was emptied from an initial pressure of approximately 730 kPa to ambient conditions and the variation in vessel pressure with time was recorded. The results show a linear relationship between vessel pressure and time with the absolute value of the gradient increasing with increasing nozzle diameter.

The results of CFD simulation of a rotating cylindrical gas sparger in a downflowing liquid are presented. The simulations cover one-phase flow (73% aqueous glycerol) and two-phase flow (air-water) with special care taken to modelling the gas cavity that forms under such conditions. The velocity field measured with the aid of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is compared with the simulation results for the case of one-phase flow.

Transport phenomena occur frequently in industrial problems. Most of the turbulent transport properties can be directly associated with the turbulent energy dissipation rate; hence it is a very significant parameter in the design of chemical processing equipment. To develop a better chemical processing equipment design, a thorough knowledge of the effect flow structure on local turbulence parameters like turbulent kinetic energy, eddy diffusivity and the energy dissipation rate are required. Turbulence is heterogeneous in most of the process equipment. Hence, the use of spatial average energy dissipation rate causes error in modelling of turbulent transport processes. In this present work, particle image velocimetry (PIV) is used to obtain the energy spectrum from grid generated homogeneous turbulence velocity data. The model of energy spectrum given by Kang et al. (2003) has been fitted to this energy spectrum using energy dissipation rate. A different approach, based on a third order structure function and velocity gradient technique has been used to compute the energy dissipation rate. The model predictions have been verified by experimental PIV velocity data from oscillating grid apparatus.
