Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Reactors in which processes are enhanced by ultrasound are hampered by the lack of a theoretical framework on their design. Simulation results of ultrasonic wave propagation in a cylindrical geometry are presented in this work, which are then used to develop guidelines for the design of ultrasonic reactors. These guidelines are used to design a new type of reactor with a novel geometry, operating at a frequency of 27kHz, 39kHz and 82kHz. This reactor is characterized using Weissler's reaction dosimetry
