Modeling And Estimation Of Reaction Constants In Hydrogen Peroxide Deterioration Reactions
In this paper, a new model in augmented state space allowing for faster prediction of hydrogen peroxide decay rates is proposed. This information is important for the development of new hydrogen peroxide solutions used to ...
Feasibility Study of Synthetic Oil Based Nanofluids for Use in Thermal Oil Heaters
Thermal oil heaters can be considered as an alternative to steam boilers for process heating use. Instead of boiling water, thermal oil heaters use heat transfer oils with high boiling points which allows operation at low ...
Gas Thruster Calibration For Satellite Simulators On An Air Bearing Table
This paper covers a simple method of calibration for gas thrusters for the application of simulated space flight. Gas thrusters are a common means of controlling spacecraft, and proper calibration of such thrusters is ...
Development Of A Ground Based Testbed For Studying The Libration Dynamics Of Orbiting Tethered Satellite Systems
This paper discusses the development of a ground based experimental environment that can mimic the libration dynamics of tethered satellite systems. The setup consists of an Air-Bearing Inclinable Turntable (A-BIT), whose ...
Flow Over A Wall-Mounted Finite-Length Square Cylinder
A conventional way of studying the flow characteristics of flow over a bluff body is by extracting the velocity distribution in horizontal planes crossing the bluff body near the bed, mid-height and close to the free-end ...
Meso-Scale Computational Modeling Of Hypervelocity Impact Damage In Advanced Materials
Modeling of hypervelocity impact (HVI) on materials and structures is often associated with high computational expenses, especially when inhomogeneous materials are involved. To reduce computational cost, complex materials ...
Kinetics Analysis Of Multi-Segment Trunk After Experimental Errors Minimization
A two-dimensional analytical heat conduction model of an annular composite fin has been carried out. The composite fins composed of a porous polyethylene core, a square aluminum insert, and metallic zinc coating layers, ...
Adsorbent-Adsorbate Pairs for Solar Thermal Energy Storage in Residential Heating Applications: A Comparative Study
This paper investigates the feasibility of using different adsorbent-adsorbate pairs in a thermal energy storage cycle to store solar energy for residential heating applications in Canada. Silica gel, activated carbon, ...
Automation In High Throughput/Content Screening For Cancer Stem Cell Drug Discovery
Evaluation Of Anti-Icing Polymer Coatings
Ice accumulation on aircraft, wind turbines and power lines can have detrimental effects, including efficiency reduction, mechanical failures and the creation of safety hazards. The aim of this study is to investigate the ...
