Droplet Impact, Spreading and Freezing on Metallic Surfaces of varying Wettability
Ice formation and accumulation can lead to operational failure and risks for structures, including power transmission lines, aircraft, offshore platforms, marine vessels, and wind turbines. Liquid repellent and icephobic ...
Experimental Investigation of Ice Accretion on Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines
In this paper, ice accretion on a wind turbine blade with a NACA 63415 airfoil is investigated with experimental techniques. Several different angles of attack, from 0° to 90°, and wind velocities, 3 m/s, 4 m/s and 5 m/s ...
Preparation and Properties of Nanoparticle-enhanced Composite Phase Change Material with Ceramic Porous Media
Nanoparticle-enhanced tailing-paraffin composite phase change material (NCPCM) is fabricated by spontaneous melt infiltration. Industrial waste-iron tailing is used as raw material to prepare ceramic porous carrier with a ...
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 ...
