Chapters with total page 1088 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. The increasing costs of research and the decreasing lifetime of products and processes make the decisions on allocation of R&D funds strategically important. Therefore, ability to predict research trends is crucial in minimizing risks of R&D expenditure planning. The purpose of this paper is to propose a model for efficient prediction of research trends in a chosen branch of science. The approach is based on population dynamics with Burgers' type global interaction and selective neighborhood. The model is estimated based on a training set and an out-of-sample forecast is performed. The research trends of filtration processes were analysed in this paper. The simulation results show that the model is able to predict the trends with a considerable accuracy and should, therefore, be tested on a wider range of research fields.

Summary : An extended systematic methodology for the design of emulsion-based chemical products is presented. The methodology consists of a model-based framework involving seven sequential hierarchical steps: starting with the identification of the needs to be satisfied by the product and then adding one-by-one the different classes of chemicals, until a formulation ...

Summary : Based upon the nominal design of a divided wall column, one obtains the minimum energy usage to achieve the desired separation. During operation, when the column is actually run, the vapor split ratio Rv is found to be non-optimal. For this and other reasons, it is likely that available energy ...

Summary : This paper proposes an ontological framework to support Industrial Symbiosis (IS) operation. The framework exploits semantic knowledge modeling and enables structural data transformation for identification of potential synergies between various industries and hence formation of one to one and complex symbiotic networks....

Summary : In this paper, a new control strategy that employs a mid-course correction to control the particle size distribution in emulsion polymerization is developed. In this approach, online and infrequent measurements are used to obtain the states of the system at the mid-course of the process. Then an optimization is performed ...

Summary : Reliable models for rate-based phenomena are the backbone of model-based process design. These models are often unknown in the early design phase and need to be determined from laboratory experiments. Although model-based experimental analysis and process design are often executed sequentially, the kinetic models might not be suitable to reliably ...

Summary : This work introduces a methodology for the solution of reactive scheduling problems in small-scale fuel cell systems that cogenerate heat and power. The proposed approach successfully transforms the on-line optimization problem into a closed-loop control problem. In brief, a multiparametric programming problem is formulated and solved once and off-line, and ...

Summary : Environmental process design methods often incorporate life-cycle assessment (LCA) as a deterministic black-box methodology. However, LCA suffers from several sources of ambiguity and uncertainty. These limitations are particularly severe for the multi-functional processes typical for the chemical industry. This work introduces a rigorous uncertainty assessment framework. The framework quantifies data ...
