As we have recently explained in a computational review on molecular dynamics [30], an isothermal process cannot be obtained by adding an extra term to the Lagrangian.
It can be observed that estimated mean value of end-to-end efficiency increases from 24% to 72% with a decrease in the polytropic index of compression from 1.4 (adiabatic process) to 1 (isothermal process).This clearly indicates liquid piston compression and expansion efficiency has a major influence on the end-to-end efficiency.
Official guidelines--such as those recommended by International Conference of Harmonization, ICH Q1A (R2), Stability Testing of New Drug Substances and Products (2003)--describe an isothermal process, where the sample is subjected to constant temperature and humidity conditions for a minimum period of 12 months in the case of long-term studies and 6 months for accelerated studies in order to determine the decreasing content of active principle during degradation, as well as changes in other parameters specific to the performance of the product such as degradation products, dissolution test, and appearance.
Since minimum wetting flow rate was approximately 0,02 l/m x min, (wetted perimeter equals to the plate width), temperature of the film decreases and process parameters became like in the isothermal process. This was recorded for every tested temperature.
Stirling cycle is defined as a ideal reversible thermodynamic cycle with two isothermal process with compression and expansion and two constant volume process with heating and cooling [4].
[check] Gas evolution rate and volume measurements should be incorporated (if necessary) as part of the isothermal process characterization stage.
To analyze the practical realization of the isothermal process, Option C.3 uses many small compression steps with inter-stage cooling between each stage to achieve a semi-isothermal process.
