  • Moroney, Kevin M.; Lee, William T.; O'Brien, Stephen B.G.; Suijver, F.; Marra, Johan (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2016)
    Extraction of coffee solubles from roast and ground coffee is a highly complex process, depending on a large number of brewing parameters. We consider a recent, experimentally validated, model of coffee extraction, describing ...
  • Cuffe, Paul; Dassios, Ioannis K.; Keane, Andrew (IEEE Computer Society, 2016)
    Abstract—Loss minimizing generator dispatch profiles for power systems are usually derived using optimization techniques. However, some authors have noted that a system’s KGL matrix can be used to analytically determine ...
  • Valavi, Masood; Svärd, Michael; Rasmuson, Åke C. (American Chemical Society, 2016)
    In this work, the NRTL-SAC and the Pharma UNIFAC models are evaluated with respect to the capability of prediction of solid liquid equilibria of pharmaceutical compounds in organic solvents. The original NRTL-SAC model is ...
  • Svärd, Michael; Valavi, Masood; Rasmuson, Åke C. (American Chemical Society, 2016)
