CEP: November 2014 A 28-page SBE supplement, entitled "A Decade of Progress," looks at the progress made in genomics, bionanotechnology, stem cell engineering and biofuels. Other topics this month include fluidization and robust process control. Editorial Print It or Forget It When I bought my iPad a few years ago, I was looking forward to accessing a library of books without lugging around the weight. And reading the newspaper online would keep the newsprint from dirtying my hands. Now that I’ve had the iPad for three years, though, I see that my expectations were not realistic. Yes, I can access books and newspapers on my iPad. But actually reading them is another matter. Read more Share Introduction to Fluidization November2014Back To BasicsRaymond Cocco, S. B. Reddy Karri, Ted KnowltonFluidized beds offer excellent heat transfer, and have the unique ability to move a wide range of solid particles in a fluid-like fashion. This article explains the basics of fluidization theory and outlines how to design a typical fluidized bed. Account for Uncertainty with Robust Control Design - Part 1 November2014InstrumentationSachi Dash, Rakesh Joshi, J. Ward MacArthur, Konstantinos TsakalisThe dynamic behavior of your process can never be modeled perfectly. However, process controllers can be designed to handle this so-called uncertainty.
