Use Exponential Functions to Correlate Temperature Dependence Asymptotic exponential equations may provide a more-accurate or easier-to-use representation of a property’s temperature dependence than commonly used polynomial expressions.
Selecting a sensor for continuous monitoring involves many considerations. This article discusses the types of sensors available, their applicability and limitations, and how to choose an appropriate sensor to protect people and equipment.
Slurry agitation involves complicated processes. This article presents guidelines for understanding the rheology of cellulosic and other fibrous materials, and outlines a method for scaling up their agitation.
Seven years ago, I wrote a column for another publica tion entitled “The U.S. Chemical Industry: R.I.P.” This pillar of American economic strength, which a few years earlier was the leading exporter among U.S. manufacturing sectors (with net exports of $15–20 billion annually), was shriveling due in large part to policy blunders and regulatory mistakes.
New investments in industry and raw materials, as well as the modernization of infrastructures and industry practices, can help to reverse México's growing trade deficit and restore the health of its chemical industry.
This on line course is designed for technicians in the chemical industry, non-chemical engineers involved who work with or supervise chemical engineers, and legal and other professions who must interact with or manage chemical engineering work.
