Effect of Extraction Vessel Aspect Ratio (AR) Sep 2017-Dec 2017
Collaborated with industry partner to analyze separation efficiency for different ARs in extraction of botanical oils.
Performed calculations and simulations to show aspect ratio only impacts pressure drops in the vessel, and separation is mainly governed by supercritical carbon dioxide’s residence times.
Calculated ROIs for various aspect ratios based on minimum mass of metal required to meet ASME standards. Hydrogen Fuel Cell as an Alternative Energy Resource Jan 2017-Feb 2017
Designed efficiency tests with laboratory grade fuel cells in different electronic and flow configurations.
Determined most energy efficient configuration, and performed design calculations for industrial grade fuel cell.
Appraised feasibility by performing cost benefit analysis to show solution was not financially viable. Reverse Osmosis for purifying River Water Mar 2017-Apr 2017
Administered experiments to determine optimal operating pressures, concentrations, and flow configurations.
Used a pilot-scale composite polyamide membrane to determine permeability of an industrial scale membrane.
