The high resolution which can be obtained by computer-assisted x-ray tomography is used to investigate Various scale heterogeneities of the flow texture characterizing multiphase flow in packed beds. The direct counting of 'irrigated' pixels allows the determination of the number of individual liquid rivulets as well as their size. The evolution of the liquid flow texture versus the liquid velocity agrees quite well with the predictions of a percolation-based model. This agreement is further confirmed by the comparison of the experimental hold-up values averaged over the column cross-section with the theoretical model. [less ▲]

With the help of a new highly sensitive method allowing the quantification of free penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) and of an integrated mathematical model, the progressive saturation of PBP1 by various beta-lactam antibiotics in growing cells of Bacillus licheniformis was studied. Although the results confirmed PBP1 as a major lethal target for these compounds, they also underlined several weaknesses in our present understanding of this phenomenon. In growing cells, but not in resting cells, the penicillin target(s) appeared to be somewhat protected from the action of the inactivators. In vitro experiments indicated that amino acids, peptides and depsipeptides mimicking the peptide moiety of the nascent peptidoglycan significantly interfered with the acylation of PBP1 by the antibiotics. In addition, the level of PBP1 saturation at antibiotic concentrations corresponding to the minimum inhibitory concentrations was not constant, suggesting that additional, presently undiscovered, factors might be necessary to account for the experimental observations.

In this paper, we propose a new experimental technique, based on X-ray tomography, allowing the analysis of the gas-liquid-solid phase distribution in trickling flow reactors. Tomography refers to the cross-sectional imaging of an object from data collected by illuminating this object from many directions. The experimental set-up allows the scanning of transverse sections of rather large columns: up to 0.8 m diameter and 2 m height can be irradiated. Experiments were carried out both without and with liquid flow. In the absence of liquid, the reconstructed images give a view of the non-uniformity of the solid phase distribution. The images obtained are very complex because they result from the superposition of several distributions with different Spatial scales. We show the existence of a first spatial scale which allows us to separate properties belonging to the individual packing elements from those belonging to the bed scale. When liquid is flowing through the packed bed X-ray scans give a clear picture of the distribution of the liquid phase saturation, despite the very low liquid film thickness. Average values of this liquid phase saturation are determined and confronted with a partial wetting model. [less ▲]
