Iron- and steelmaking processes consume an enormous amount of materials in a large-scale production unit. The overall process consists of the flow of material as well as heat across large number of interconnected unit process reactors. Almost all reactors have deviations from thermodynamic equilibrium in overall sense, but they can be classified as...
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for complex diseases have focused primarily on single-trait analyses for disease status and disease-related quantitative traits.
