Optimal control of a batch crystallization process
MetadataShow full item record
A dynamic model of an aluminium trihydroxide batch crystallization is considered in this work. The process model, which takes into account kinetics of nucleation, growth and agglomeration, is based on the mass balance of the process and the population balance of the dispersed crystals. Assuming that the temperature of the solution and the seeding policy are variable, optimal control techniques are applied to the model to optimize various performance criteria. Some interesting numerical results for the behaviour of the model are presented.

Modelling pile capacity and load-settlement behaviour of piles embedded in sand & mixed soils using artificial intelligenceAlkroosh, Iyad Salim Jabor (2011)This thesis presents the development of numerical models which are intended to be used to predict the bearing capacity and the load-settlement behaviour of pile foundations embedded in sand and mixed soils. Two artificial ...
