Thus, the primary objectives of this study was therefore to use RSM in conjunction with central composite design, which requires fewer tests than a full factorial design to establish the functional relationships between three operating variables namely sensor location, drive frequency and mass flow rate, and phase shift for optimum performance of Coriolis mass flow sensor.
One of the reasons for the reduced bottom ash mass flow when firing upgraded oil shale could be in the reduction of the content of carbonate minerals in the fuel.
