Lilit Yeghiazarian, Krishna Pillai, Rodrigo Rosati
2016 Transport in Porous Media  
The computational challenge of dealing with the very large network of the fine layer was approached with extrapolation methods based on data available on smaller networks.  ...  Interestingly, the material properties of the pore network realizations, i.e., pore size distribution, contact angle, and thickness, were based on independent measurements of the porous materials tested  ...

Petri Nets—A Versatile Modeling Structure

Miryam Barad
2016 Applied Mathematics  
To approach time-based evaluation of system performances, Timed Petri Nets (TPNs) were introduced. Modeling the notion of time is not straightforward.  ...  This paper reviews several published examples where Petri Nets were used in different circumstances such as estimating expected utilization of processing resources at steady state in open queueing networks  ...  In open queueing networks, customers enter and leave the network in an unconstrained manner.  ...

Simulation and optimization of material and energy flow systems

Andreas Moeller, Martina Prox, Mario Schmidt, Hendrik Lambrecht
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC)  
Material flow analysis (MFA) becomes more and more an important instrument to support environmental protection and sustainable development.  ...  Based on the industrial ecology or industrial metabolism paradigm (Fischer-Kowalski 1998, Fischer-Kowalski and Hüttler 1999), we interpret material flow analysis in a broader sense.  ...  In this regard, we recommend the material flow network approach. Material flow networks are based on Petri Nets. They are used to represent period-oriented material and energy flows and stocks.  ...

SELF-ORGANIZING AGENT-BASED GRADE TRANSITION IN DISTRIBUTED CHEMICAL REACTOR NETWORKS

M. Derya Tetiker, Eric Tatara, Michael North, Fouad Teymour, Ali Cinar
2007 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
One such problem is product grade transitions in distributed process.  ...  The framework proposed earlier (Tetiker, 2006a) is extended by adding several layers of agents to control species percentage distribution in autocatalytic reactor networks.  ...  The system is operated with constant volume, thus, constraint equations are formulated on the reactor flow rates to ensure that material is conserved.  ...

Spontaneous oscillations and negative-conductance transitions in microfluidic networks

Daniel J. Case, Jean-Régis Angilella, Adilson E. Motter

Failure mechanisms in polyolefines: The role of crazing, shear yielding and the entanglement network

Rudy A.C. Deblieck, D.J.M. van Beek, Klaas Remerie, Ian M. Ward
2011 Polymer  
Valid strategies for increasing the crack propagation resistance in polyolefines are reviewed. Finally an outlook for further research to complement the present knowledge base is formulated.  ...  The important role of the underlying molecular entanglement network in this approach is reflected by the strain hardening behaviour which is shown to be a robust measure for predicting slow crack growth  ...  Acknowledgements Dr Victor Litvinov is acknowledged for discussion on the physical nature of the molecular entanglement network.  ...

Temperature Effects on Crack Tip Plasticity in Polymers [chapter]

E. Van Der Giessen, J. Lai
1999 Solid Mechanics and its Applications  
It is shown that self-heating can raise the temperature in SAN sufficiently high locally to reach the glass transition temperature.  ...  The crack tip fields in amorphous glassy polymers are distinctly different from that in metals, and are associated with the initiation and propagation of shear bands.  ...  By imposing the reasonable side condition that the network 'breaks down' when the glass transition is approached, we find that these parameters need to satisfy Small-scale yielding problem Following  ...
