Abstract  

It is argued that Leydesdorff's theory of citations mixes the ideal or pure case with complicating factors. Ideally, citations are used as shorthand and for ethical reasons. The social network between scientists should be seen as a second-order correction on the basic model or, sometimes, even as noise. Metaphorically speaking Leydesdorff's theory is not a theory about ideal gases, but about polluted air.

Abstract  

The enthalpies, entropies and Gibbs energies of inclusion of dl-1,3-, 1,4- and meso-2,3-butanediols into α- and β-cyclodextrin cavities from ideal gas phase have been determined on the basis of newly obtained experimental data of the butanediols. The butanediol molecules are stabilised strongly in the cavities due to interactions with inner walls of the cavities. Entropies of the gaseous isomers are greatly decreased in the cavities. The largest decrease is obtained for the case of 2,3-BD. Discussions concerning the1,4-butanediol given in the preceding paper have been changed due to the adoption of new data on the butanediols.

Abstract

Heat transfer in gas-solid two-phase flow is investigated numerically and experimentally. The numerical computations are carried out using four-way coupling Eulerian-Lagrangian approach. The effects of particle rotation and lift forces are included in the model. The gas-phase turbulence is modeled via low Reynolds number k-ε turbulence models. The SIMPLE algorithm is extended to take the effect of compressibility into account. The experimental study is performed using crushed limestone to simulate the solid phase. The effects of Reynolds numbers, particles size and temperature on the pressure drop and the temperature of the phases are investigated. The model predictions are found to be in a good agreement with available experimental data for high speed gas-solid flow and present experimental data for low speed flow. The present results indicate that heat transfer in gas solid flow can be modeled using ideal gas incompressible flow model at low conveying speed, while for high speed flow, a full compressible model should be used.
