Some possible elementary reactions are not included in the classical mathematical models of thermal decomposition. For example, we can assume that in the thermal decompositions of simple carbonates a proportion of the O2− ions produced on the reaction interface can migrate into the interior of the reactant phase, since at this temperature there is some probability of CO2 exchange between an O2− and a neighbouring CO3 2− ion. A similar diffusion-type process can be assumed in a wide class of decomposition reactions. The present state of computer science makes it possible to show by mathematical modelling how this migration influences the TG curves of the simplest contracting-sphere-type reactions. The resulting extended contracting-sphere model can provide the induction and the acceleration period of the TG curves.

Abstract  

A mathematical model is suggested for the approximation of the monoenergetic gamma-ray spectra obtained by a Ge(Li) detector. Some features of the instrumentation monoline spectra in the energy range upto 2 MeV are considered in detail. Computer program “APPROXIMATSIYA” is described. The program allows to determine the parameters of the mathematical model with the purpose to construct a making up standard spectrum library. The results of the monoline spectrum processing are discussed.

Abstract  

Mathematical modeling of toluene oxidation under unsteady state catalyst created by forced oscillations of concentration of toluene in the reactor inlet was carried out. It is shown that, under periodic reactor operation, the benzaldehyde yield was up to several times higher than the steady state value. This was explained by the participation of different oxygen species in the partial and total oxidation on the catalyst surface.

Abstract  

Reading and co-workers introduced a new technique a few years ago called Modulated Differential Scanning Calorimetry or MDSC. Here the first part of a theoretical analysis for this technique is given. A simple mathematical model for modulated differential scanning calorimetry in the form of an ordinary differential equation is derived. The model is analysed to find the effect of a kinetic event in the form of a chemical reaction. Some possible sources of error are discussed. A more sophisticated version of the model allowing for spatial variation in a calorimeter is developed and it is seen how it can be reduced to the earlier model. Some preliminary work on a phase change is also presented.

Abstract  

In this paper, pyrolysis characteristics of oil shale obtained from Huadian, China, are investigated by thermogravimetry method. The effect of operating conditions, such as particle size, heating rate on the pyrolysis process is analyzed, and kinetic parameters of pyrolysis at different heating rates are calculated using a two-stage Arrhenius model that is solved by the Freeman-Carroll method. On the basis of these experimental results and theoretical analysis, a mathematical model, fully suitable for the pyrolysis characteristics of oil shale, is developed: mass loss rate is described by a two-stage intrinsic kinetics equation for reducing the calculation error; pyrolytic heat value of volatile is contained in energy equation, and density equation is considered as well, due to the release of a large amount of volatiles in pyrolysis process. Thermogravimetric experimental data are used to validate the described models.
