Highlights of research

  1. Showed that in a two-parameter segregation model that as the degree of mixing increases from zero (which is a one-parameter `dead-volume' model) to infinity (which is a perfect mixing model) there is a region in which the effluent concentration is lower than with no mixing. Thus there is a critical value of the mixing parameter (δcr) and if the mixing parameter is lower than this value (δ < δcr)) the performance of the reactor is worse than if there is no mixing. (Msmali and Nelson, 2010).
