Temperature of the cooling water in the water jacket (°C)
Table A.3. Significance of the column headings in the "COOLING CONTRIBUTIONS" file generated by the well-mixed bioreactor model
Rate of waste heat generation by the growth reaction that is taking place in the solids phase (W) Rate of sensible heat transfer from the solids phase to the bioreactor wall (W). A negative number means transfer from the wall to the solids
Rate of sensible heat transfer from the solids phase to the gas phase (W). A negative number means transfer from the gas phase to the solids phase)
Rate of heat removal from the solids phase by evaporation (W). A negative number means that condensation is occurring, bringing energy to the solids phase Difference between the rate of waste metabolic heat and heat removal, calculated as "growth - (toWall+toGAS+byEVAP)"
