Thermal And Hydraulic Performance Of A Novel Evaporator Coil For Refrigeration Systems
With increasing energy cost and constraints on emission standards, there is a strong need to reduce energy consumption and/or increase equipment efficiency. Refrigeration systems are the third largest use of electricity ...
Temperature Measurements Of N-Heptane Injection And Combustion In The Ignition Quality Tester (LQT™)
An experimental work has been conducted to investigate the ignition of n-heptane in the ignition quality tester (IQT™) by using fine gage thermocouples. A set of eight butt-welded exposed junction thermocouples (TCs) were ...
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 ...
Assessment of Aliphatic Based Soot Inception in Laminar Diffusion Flames
Soot models are key components of computation fluid dynamic combustion codes that attempt to prescribe how soot is formed. However, due to the complex nature of soot formation, not all pathways may have been fully ...
Thermal Management of Electrical and Electronic Systems Using PCM
The present experimental research investigates transient thermal performance of a PCM-based thermal management system for cooling electronics components. The proposed system consists of a heatsink that is submerged into ...
