GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT
1981 to 1984
Department of Chemical Engineering, Syracuse, New York
Research Assistant (September 1981 to November 1984)
- Analyzed different scale-up criteria for industrial mixing using
the simulation models. Showed that constant power scale-up maintains
turbulence levels in the vessel. Dispersed phase mixing decreases 15 to
30 percent for this scale-up condition.
- Presented research results to local industry. The preliminary
results helped secure industrial matching funds for a $370,000 proposal
to the National Science Foundation.
- Integrated hydrodynamic turbulence models with existing drop
interaction models in the Monte Carlo simulations. Used the simulation
to confirm homogeneous mixing patterns observed in the laboratory mixing
- Taught a recitation section of twenty freshman engineering
students. Covered numerical methods and engineering calculation
using BASIC and FORTRAN.
