Abstract

"Included in the dusty gas equation are three constants, C0, C1 and C2, which depend only upon the porous medium. Values for C0 and C1 can be obtained for a particular porous material by performing pure gas flow experiments and a value for C2 can be obtained for the same material by performing Wicke-Kallenbach experiments. In this work, values for the dusty gas model parameters, for activated carbon, were obtained by performing the necessary experiments. The design and operation of the experimental equipment is presented along with the results obtained. The activated carbon pellets used in this study were unique in that they were not pressed into cylindrical shapes, but were hand shaped to regular prisms, thus preserving their internal pore structure"--Abstract, page ii.
