Whole plant open chamber to measure gas exchange on herbaceous plant
Much of our understanding about CO2 and H2O gas exchange in plants has been gained from studies at leaf level. Extrapolation of results to whole plant is difficult and not always accurate. In order to overcome this limitation, ...
A leaf gas exchange model that accounts for intra‐canopy variability by considering leaf nitrogen content and local acclimation to radiation in grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.)
Understanding the distribution of gas exchange within a plant is a prerequisite for scaling up from leaves to canopies. We evaluated whether leaf traits were reliable predictors of the effects of leaf ageing and leaf ...
A functional–structural plant model that simulates whole- canopy gas exchange of grapevine plants (Vitis vinifera L.) under different training systems
(Oxford University Press, 2020-09)
Background and Aims: Scaling from single-leaf to whole-canopy photosynthesis faces several complexities related to variations in light interception and leaf properties. To evaluate the impact of canopy strucuture on gas ...
HydroShoot: a functional-structural plant model for simulating hydraulic structure, gas and energy exchange dynamics of complex plant canopies under water deficit—application to grapevine (Vitis vinifera)
(Oxford Academic Press, 2019-06)
This paper presents HydroShoot, a leaf-based functional-structural plant model (FSPM) that simulates gas exchange rates of complex plant canopies under water deficit conditions. HydroShoot is built assuming that simulating ...
Improvements in the Design of the Cyclohexane Production Process Implementing Mass Exchange with a Counter Current Gas Permeation Membrane
(American Chemical Society, 2013-01)
In this paper, we propose changes in the design of a cyclohexane production process, following a mass exchange design heuristic developed in a previous work (Ind. Eng. Chem. Res.2011, 50 (11), 6849-6859). In the study case ...

Dynamic optimization with a simultaneou method: Application to a heat exchanger
(Asociación Argentina de Mecánica Computacional, 2003-05)
In this work we use a numeric method based on a combined discretization and simultaneous dynamic optimization approach to solve a system consisting of partial differential and algebraic equations. The spatial derivatives ...
