communications across all branches of Chemical Engineering,
Applied Chemistry, Heat & Mass Transfer, Applied Mechanics
and Control & Information Processing, and especially to
facilitate interaction between theory and experimental
set-up. Submission of a manuscript means it has not been
copyrighted, submitted, accepted or published elsewhere.

put any limitation on the personal freedom of the author to
use material from the paper in other publications.
