ERRORS OF MANOMETRIC CO2 SORPTION EXPERIMENTS ON COAL CAUSED BY ACCURACY OF PRESSURE SENSOR

The accuracy of supercritical CO2 sorption determination on coal is important for estimating the CO2 sequestration potential of coal bed using CO2 injection into deep unminable coal seams. Based on the CO2 density change and CO2 sorption data of three selected coal samples, this paper investigates the effect of pressure-sensor accuracy on measurements of CO2 adsorption isotherms on coals with manometric equipment. The characteristic density-change of CO2 in proper pressure range determines a

Study on the suitability of ZnO thin film for dynamic pressure sensing application

Rapid pressure variations with respect to time need to be measured in many fields such as aerospace (engine combustion studies, acoustics, shock waves, ballistics, etc.), automotive (airbag deployment), biomedical (arterial pressure pulse), etc., with demanding requirements which are completely different compared with those for static pressure measurements. Dynamic pressure sensors are used for precise measurement of time-varying pressure signals. Various technologies such as piezoresistive

COMPENSATION OF CAPACITIVE DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE SENSOR USING MULTI LAYER PERCEPTRON NEURAL NETWORK

Capacitive differential pressure sensor (CPS), which converts an input differential pressure to an output current, is extremely used in different industries. Since the accuracy of CPS is limited due to ambient temperature variations and nonlinear dependency of input and output, compensation is necessary in industries that are sensitive to pressure measurement. This paper proposes a framework for designing of CPS compensation system based on Multi Layer Perceptron (MLP) neural network. Firstly

Body stalk anomaly: antenatal sonographic diagnosis of this rare entity with review of literature

Body stalk anomaly is a rare and severe malformation syndrome in which the exact pathophysiology and trigger factors are still unknown. Possible causes of body stalk anomaly include early amnion rupture with direct mechanical pressure and amniotic bands, vascular disruption of the early embryo, or an abnormality in the germinal disk.
