To avoid economic losses, a process has been proposed for converting the unused methanol to dimethyl ether (DME) through a dehydration reaction. After a preliminary simulation of the base case and optimization of the distillation column, an Equivalent Annual Operating Cost (EAOC) of $140,000 was calculated for the column. The EAOC was the sum of the annualized capital investment and the annual operating cost. Determining the process to be worth pursuing, a Toller was brought in to provide rental ...


Computational Study On Suppression Of Airfoil Flow Separation Using High-Frequency Translational Surface Actuation, Bibek Gupta Apr 2021

Computational Study On Suppression Of Airfoil Flow Separation Using High-Frequency Translational Surface Actuation, Bibek Gupta

Honors Theses

Flow separation is a phenomenon that occurs when pressure increases in the streamwise direction of a flow, making a distinctive boundary layer or separation bubble. It causes aircraft to experience an increase in drag and noise and a decrease in a lift, hence degrading their aviation performance. This study uses numerical simulations to understand better the effects of high-frequency translational surface actuation (HFTSA) on flow separation control. The numerical simulations mimic the experimental parameters of an experiment performed by Okoye et al. on using the HFTSA system to control flow separation. A symmetrical airfoil structure of chord length of 0 ...

Theses and Dissertations

Proteins that have been modified by attaching them to a surface or to a polyethylene glycol (PEG) molecule can see many uses in therapeutics and diagnostics -- these unique proteins are called protein devices. Current techniques can perform these functionalizations at a specific residue on the protein, but what remains is identifying what happens to protein structure when mutated, and where to perform the attachment. Both of these issues can be examined using molecular dynamic (MD) simulations. Currently, simulations of the unnatural amino acid (uAA) mutations necessary for protein device functionalization cannot be executed, and full-protein screens of all possible protein ...

Using System Dynamics To Study The Effect Of Change Orders On Labor Productivity, Shrouk Gharib Jan 2021

Using System Dynamics To Study The Effect Of Change Orders On Labor Productivity, Shrouk Gharib

Theses and Dissertations

Change orders in construction projects lead to numerous negative impacts, including loss of labor productivity, delays, and cost overruns. Owners and contractors are usually in disagreement when it comes to allocating the extent of responsibilities with respect to the resulting overruns. Each party tries to hold the other party fully responsible for such overruns through a series of claims and disputes. Several delay analysis techniques have been developed to aid in settling such disputes, however, they do not fully grasp the rippled impacts of change orders and do not assist parties in reaching consensus when it comes to finding the ...


Queueing Models With Map Arrivals Useful In Service Sectors, Srinivas R. Chakravarthy Jan 2021

Queueing Models With Map Arrivals Useful In Service Sectors, Srinivas R. Chakravarthy

Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering Publications

Queueing models have found applications in many fields, notably in service sectors. In this paper, we study queueing models that have significant applications in service sectors. We look at multi-server systems with MAP arrivals. We assume phase type services for single server systems and exponential services when dealing with multi-server systems. All arriving customers finding no idle server will not wait in the system to receive services but rather leave their information in a registry list. These customers will be reached out on a first-come-first-served basis (FCFS) by an idle server soon after completing its current service. The reach out ...

Optical Properties Of Ultrathin In(Ga)As/Gaas And In(Ga)N/Gan Quantum Wells, Yurii Maidaniuk

Theses and Dissertations

Recently, structures based on ultrathin quantum wells (QWs) began to play a critical role in modern devices, such as lasers, solar cells, infrared photodetectors, and light-emitting diodes. However, due to the lack of understanding of the formation mechanism of ultrathin QWs during the capping process, scientists and engineers cannot fully explore the potential of such structures. This study aims to investigate how structural parameters of ultrathin QWs affect their emission properties by conducting a systematic analysis of the optical properties of In(Ga)As/GaAs and In(Ga)N/GaN ultrathin QWs. Specifically, the analysis involved photoluminescence measurements combined with ...

Tsinghua Science and Technology

In this paper, we propose and construct an observer design based on a Self-Recurrent Consequent-Part Fuzzy Wavelet Neural Network (SRCPFWNN) for a class of nonlinear system. We use a Self-Recurrent Wavelet Neural Network (SRWNN) to construct a self-recurrent consequent part for each rule of the Takagi-Sugeno-Kang (TSK) model in the SRCPFWNN and analyze the structure of the fuzzy wavelet neural network model. Based on the Direct Adaptive Control Theory (DACT) and a back propagation-based learning algorithm, all parameters of the consequent parts are updated online in the SRCPFWNN. On this basis, we propose a design method using an adaptive state ...

Finite Element Simulation And Experimental Test Of The Wear Behavior For Self-Lubricating Spherical Plain Bearings, Yahong Xue, Jigang Chen, Sumin Guo, Qingliang Meng, Junting Luo

Friction

In this study, based on the classical Archard adhesion wear theory, a three-dimensional finite element model was established, with the aim of simulating the failure process of self-lubricating spherical plain bearings in the swinging wear condition. The results show that the self-lubricating spherical plain bearings go through two different stages during the wear process, namely, initial wear stage and stable wear stage. Because the large contact points wear out during the initial wear stage, the maximum contact pressure decreases as the test period increases. The relatively larger wear depth region shows elliptical distribution, and the maximum distribution appears in the ...

Developing A Substation Design Curriculum For Electronics Engineering Technology, Filipe Santos Araujo, Erik A. Mayer Oct 2020

Developing A Substation Design Curriculum For Electronics Engineering Technology, Filipe Santos Araujo, Erik A. Mayer

ASEE North Midwest Section Annual Conference 2020 Publications

Background: The latest technologies have created an increasing demand for the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity. Substations are a crucial segment of our power grid. Substations are used to step-up voltages for the long-distance transmission of energy and to stepdown voltages for industrial and residential use. The demand for substation design curriculum was discussed at a meeting of the Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC) for EET. Members of the IAC consisted of professionals from Black & Veatch and other companies that work with power systems such as substations and switchgear. The curriculum was developed in close cooperation with Black & Veatch to shape the curriculum with a practical approach.
Purpose: This paper describes the development of a substation design curriculum to be used in an Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) program at Pittsburg State University (PSU).
Method: In 2019, a PSU faculty participated in a series of NSF sponsored workshops for facilitating the teaching of electric energy (Workshops for Facilitating Faculty to Teach Electric Energy Courses for Combating Climate Change, 2019) since the EET faculty did not have a strong background in power systems. In addition, a graduate assistant with a background in power systems was recruited to create the substation design curriculum. In the same year, a visit to Black & Veatch was conducted where the substation design process was presented to a PSU faculty and the graduate assistant. It was discussed what topics should be included in the curriculum. In 2020, the substation design curriculum was introduced into an existing Electric Power course. The substation curriculum included lectures on the basics of generation, transmission, and distribution; substation components; one-line diagrams; and circuit breaker topologies. The curriculum also consisted of two labs which used the PowerWorld software and an exam. A guest ...

Chemical Technology, Control and Management

A modified Kalman filter of the glass cooking process is synthesized, taking into account perturbations in the form of a sequence of colored noises. The possibility of expanding this filter by noise filters to improve functioning in the presence of low-frequency disturbances is studied and a corresponding estimation scheme with additional noise filters is proposed. The results of the simulation allow us to assume that low-frequency disturbances in the glass furnace act at the input and affect the state of the control object.
