Generalized criteria for assessing thermal stability of discontinuous reactors? Doctoral Thesis
The thesis has been undertaken with the main purpose of developing intrinsic criterion that would allow the prevention of thermal runaway for any process carried out in discontinuous reactors (batch and semi-batch processes).
Intrinsic criteria, b
