[ Boehrer, Schultze 2008 ]. In addition to the seasonal changes in reservoir thermodynamics, shallow ones can stratify and destratify on a daily basis [ Branco, Torgersen 2009 ]. Analyses of hydrodynamics, thermodynamics and impacts on water quality and ecosystems can be supported by mathematical modelling. There is a variety of numerical models describing the physical processes affecting water mixing and heat transport or coupled hydrodynamic and water quality models. Jensen et al. (2015) reported over 1500 such tools based on a literature review. There are numerous

As a kind of mass transfer process as well as the basis of separating and purifying mixtures, interfacial adsorption has been widely applied to fields like chemical industry, medical industry and purification engineering in recent years. Influencing factors of interfacial adsorption, in addition to the traditional temperature, intensity of pressure, amount of substance and concentration, also include external fields, such as magnetic field, electric field and electromagnetic field, etc. Starting from the point of thermodynamics and taking the Gibbs adsorption as the model, the combination of energy axiom and the first law of thermodynamics was applied to boundary phase, and thus the theoretical expression for the volume of interface absorption under electric field as well as the mathematical relationship between surface tension and electric field intensity was obtained. In addition, according to the obtained theoretical expression, the volume of interface absorption of ethanol solution under different electric field intensities and concentrations was calculated. Moreover, the mechanism of interfacial adsorption was described from the perspective of thermodynamics and the influence of electric field on interfacial adsorption was explained reasonably, aiming to further discuss the influence of thermodynamic mechanism of interfacial adsorption on purifying air-conditioning engineering under intensification of electric field.

Thermodynamics Analysis of Non-Metallic Inclusions Formation in the Liquid Steel Flow Through Continuous Casting Tundish

Experiments were conducted at industrial plant to determine the free and total oxygen contents in molten steel in the tundish during continuous casting blooms of sizes 280×280 mm. On the basis of industrial experiment results a thermodynamic evaluation of non metallic inclusion formation in liquid steel was performed. Software FactSage® with thermodynamic base packages were tested and applied to calculate equilibrium formation of oxides and sulphides. The results showed the effect of oxygen contents and temperature on the formation inclusion in liquid steel. Calculation results was presented in the form of suitable characteristics which were illustrated graphically.
