  • Meedeniya, DA; Perera, I; Bowles, J [Conference-Abstract]
    Software models play a significant role with the growth of software system development based on Model Driven Development (MDD) approach. Model transformations and compositions are the heart of MDD and allow the development ...
  • Perera, I; Meedeniya, DA; Bandara, M [Conference-Abstract]
    We expect software systems to be dependable and sufficiently responsive to the inevitable changes regularly happen in their operational environments. This can be a challenging task to achieve when systems are in enterprise ...
  • Kandanapitiya, KKCW; Gunasekera, MY [Article-Abstract]
    Esterification reactions are limited by chemical equilibrium and therefore they are carried out commercially using either a large excess of one of the reactants or by removing one of the products continuously. The removal ...
  • De Silva, ECL; Bamunusingha, BANN; Gunasekera, MY [Article-Abstract]
    The esterification of acetic acid with ethanol has been investigated in the presence of a low cost ion exchange resin mainly used in the water treatment industry namely Trilite SCR-B as a heterogeneous catalyst. Internal ...
