Title: DETERl\1INATION OF THE FACTORS THAT AFFECTS ONION SPOILAGE DURING STORAGE
Authors: ADEYEMIOMOLADETOLULOPE, ADEYEMIOMOLADETOLULOPE
Abstract: ABSTRACT
This research work was carried out to determine the factor that affects
onion spoilage during storage. Also, a model for the process was developed.
The organisms that were responsible for the spoilage of onion were isolated and
their activities monitored in an incubating hood.
The model assumed that the product of pectin hydrolysis; polygalacturonic
acid, could be used as an index of spoilage. For the model
derivation, many important factors such as temperature, moisture content, p{I
and concentration were considered.
From the correlation coefficient, R2, of the model, it could be deduced
that simulated results obtained from the mathematical model were close to the
experimentally determined values in some of the factors tested.
For example, an optimum pH of 4.47, concentration of 0.313moldm-
3
and
moisture content of 0.9 were obtained from the model as against 4.5,
0.312moldm-3 and 1 for pH, concentration, and percentage moisture content
respectively obtained from experimental analysis.2013-07-12T00:00:00ZMODELLING AND SlMULA nON of AIR poLLUTION CAUSED BY CARBON MoNOXIDE (A CASE srUDY OF SHARADA INDUSTRIAL ESTATE, KANO

Title: MATHEMATICAL MODELLING AND SIMULATION OF SCALE FORMATION IN CRUDE OIL PIPELINES.
Authors: AJAYI, OLUFEMI.S
Abstract: ABSTRACT
The mathematical model for predicting the rate of scale deposit in crude oil
transportation pipeline has been carried out in this work. The term scale is a crystalline structure
usually formed in a saturated solution when the physical or chemical conditions are changed
The modeled equation Formulated was based on the principle of scaling process being in
an unsteady state condition, that is, the particle growth rate is directly proportional to the surface
The Final mathematical model developed was obtained as:
