GHTC 2016 - IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference: Technology for the Benefit of Humanity, Conference Proceedings | Year: 2016

Participation in individual or team-based sports provides everyone with the opportunity to learn and practice humanitarian attitudes and skills necessary for global citizenship. Sports by their nature present no economic, status, nationality, gender, or cultural barriers for participation. Sports facilitate personal health and wellness and a peaceful, diverse, tolerant, and understanding world for everyone regardless of circumstance. This is particularly the case for those who are handicapped and those from isolated and/or economically challenged regions of the world. Sports participation has, for them, been the enabler of a better life, respect, and bringing hope through example to others facing seemingly unsurmountable difficult circumstances. In this report selected case studies of athletes and sporting organizations that through strength, courage and determination overcame barriers and achieved success benefiting humanity. Case studies of technology innovations that facilitate global participation by all peoples regardless of circumstance are discussed. For-profit and non-profit organizations are increasingly taking ownership of their social and humanitarian responsibility to make the world a better place through opportunity and sponsorship of sports for all. Public policy and applied technological research both have an important role to ensure the equitable and universal opportunity for participation regardless of circumstance. © 2016 IEEE.

By using Huabei liquefied petroleum gas as a feedstock, the effects of reaction temperature and weight hourly space velocity on the aromatization product yield, conversion, motor octane number (MON), research octane number (RON), and liquid product compound were researched in a confined fluidized bed reactor. The experimental result showed that the yield of off-gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and coke increase with the increase of reaction temperature, but the yield of gasoline and diesel oil decrease with the increase of reaction temperature. The conversions of Huabei C4 liquefied petroleum gas are above 97%. The MON and RON of liquid production reach the maximum at 430°C. With increasing weight hourly space velocity, the yield of off-gas and liquefied petroleum gas increased, but the yield of gasoline and diesel oil dropped; conversion of C4 liquefied petroleum gas is about 97% and its yield first increased and then decreased with increasing weight hourly space velocity. The MON and RON of solvent production first increased and then decreased with the increase of weight hourly space velocity, and these had a maximum from 1 to 9 h-1. The optimizing operation condition would be confined when the reaction temperature is 430-450°C and weight hourly space velocity is from 3 to 5 h-1. The gasoline, diesel oil, and the aromatics contents of liquid production before entering gasoline and after entering liquefied petroleum gas are higher than these simultaneously entering gasoline and liquefied petroleum gas and before entering liquefied petroleum gas and after entering gasoline. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Rates of mass transfer were measured at the inner surface of an annular duct by an electrochemical technique under developing flow conditions with superimposed pulsating flow. Variables like the frequency and amplitude of the pulsating flow, steady flow velocity, and annulus height were studied. The pulsating flow was found to enhance the rate of mass transfer by a factor ranging from 1.2 to 5.5 compared to the steady laminar flow value. The superimposed pulsating flow had only a minor effect on the rate of mass transfer under steady turbulent flow conditions. The pulsating flow reactor offers the advantage over steady flow annular reactor in that it can be operated at low flow rates to increase the residence time. The high residence time and high rate of mass transfer resulting from pulsation together increase the degree of conversion per pass as well as the reactor productivity. Rates of mass transfer were electrochemically measured at the inner surface of an annular duct under developing flow conditions with superimposed pulsation. The pulsating flow enhanced the rate of mass transfer compared to the steady laminar flow. The high residence time and mass transfer rate resulting from pulsation increase the conversion degree per pass. Copyright © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
