2018: 2nd International Workshop Non-Invasive Experimental Tools and Numerical Methods for the Investigation of Non-Reactive and Reactive Gas-Liquid Flows

    Faisant écho au colloque Franco-Allemand de juin 2016 organisé à Toulouse, ce second colloque s’est déroulé à Hambourg, dans les locaux de Technische Universität Hamburg (TUHH). Dans ce colloque se sont réunis environ 40 scientifiques (chercheurs, post-doctorants et doctorants, issus de la fédération de recherche FERMaT (14 participants,) et des universités membres du […]

2018 : Escape Classroom: The Leblanc Process—An Educational “Escape Game” – J. Chem. Educ.

An “escape game” activity is proposed to increase stimulation, team group skills, and adaptability in the chemistry classroom. The students follow in the footsteps of Nicolas Leblanc, a young French chemist, who took part in a contest launched by the French Academy of Sciences in 1775 to produce industrial soda ash. By means of scientific […]

2017: Fast determination of gas-liquid diffusion coefficient by an innovative double approach

Feishi Xu, Mélanie Jimenez, Nicolas Dietrich, Gilles Hébrard Chemical Engineering Science Volume 170, 12 October 2017, Pages 68-76 Abstract Two effective mathematical approaches based on the probability and statistics theory are proposed for obtaining the oxygen diffusion coefficients in gas-liquid systems. The first method was to apply PLIFI (Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence with Inhibition) to […]

2017: Experimental characterization of multi-component absorption in complex liquid: New method and apparatus

David Benizri, Nicolas Dietrich, Gilles Hébrard Chemical Engineering Science Volume 170, 12 October 2017, Pages 116-121 Abstract The Henry’s law constant is required to size absorption processes. However, its experimental determination for multi-component gases in presence of complex liquids remains problematic in the process industry and research field. This work presents a new experimental setup […]

2017: Local hydrodynamic investigation by PIV and CFD within a Dynamic filtration unit under laminar flow

Xiaomin Xie, Claude Le Men, Nicolas Dietrich, PhilippeSchmitz, LucFillaudeau https://doi.org/10.1016/j.seppur.2017.04.009 Separation and Purification Technology Abstract To better understand the hydrodynamics in a Dynamic Filtration module (DF), a local investigation within a complex and confined module named Rotating and Vibrating Filtration (RVF) was scrutinized under laminar flow with viscous Newtonian fluid (Remixing = 45). RVF consists of two […]
