Experimental and Numerical Studies of Structured Packing Column
MetadataShow full item record
This study investigated the hydrodynamic performance of two different existing structured packings, namely Mellapak 250Y and Montzpak B1-500. Two different-sized packing columns, i.e. 200mm diameter and 54mm diameter, were used. As the commercial structured packings were not available for small lab-scale dimensions, the replicas were manufactured additively using 3D printing. To measure the liquid distribution for counter-current flow of air and water, the Wire Mesh Sensor (WMS) was used at the location of packing transitions. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations were carried out to better understand the packing performance, e.g. pressure drop along the column height, liquid film holdups and liquid distributions. A good agreement was achieved between experimental data and simulation results. The methodology and results discussed in this study can provide indepth insights into the performance of the commercial packings and be of importance when testing new packings.

Implementation fidelity of a nurse-led falls prevention program in acute hospitals during the 6-PACK trialMorello, R.; Barker, A.; Ayton, D.; Landgren, F.; Kamar, J.; Hill, Keith; Brand, C.; Sherrington, C.; Wolfe, R.; Rifat, S.; Stoelwinder, J. (2017)Background: When tested in a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of 31,411 patients, the nurse-led 6-PACK falls prevention program did not reduce falls. Poor implementation fidelity (i.e., program not implemented as intended) ...
