The general rate model (GRM) is considered to be a comprehensive and reliable mathematical model for describing the separation and mass transfer processes of solutes in chromatographic columns. However, the numerical solution of model equations is complicated and time consuming. This paper presents analytical solutions of the GRM for linear adsorption isotherms and different sets of boundary conditions at the column inlet and outlet. The analytical solutions are obtained by means of Laplace transformation. Numerical Laplace inversion is used to transform back the solution in the time domain because analytical inversion cannot be obtained. The first four temporal moments are derived analytically using the Laplace domain solutions. The moments of GRM are utilized to analyze the retention times, band broadenings, front asymmetries and kurtosis of the
This paper examines unsteady magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) convective fluid flow described by the Oldroyd-B model using ramped wall temperature and velocity simultaneously. The fluid flow is closed to an infinite vertical flat plate immersed through a porous medium. Laplace transformation is used to find solutions of momentum and energy equations. Afterwards, the Nusselt number and skin friction coefficient are obtained. A parametric study is performed to investigate the effects of ramped velocity and temperature (at wall) on the considered fluid flow model.
The analysis of Homotopy Perturbation Method (HPM) for the solution of fractional partial differential equations (FPDEs) is presented. A unified convergence theorem is given. In order to validate the theory, the solution of fractional-order Burger-Poisson (FBP) equation is obtained. Furthermore, this work presents the method to find the solution of FPDEs, while the same partial differential equation (PDE) with ordinary derivative i.e., for α = 1 , is not defined in the given domain. Moreover, HPM is applied to a complicated obstacle boundary value problem (BVP) of fractional order.
