Inlet Channel Effects On Archimedes Screw Generators
The Archimedes screw is one of the oldest machines in the world, and has been used for various applications including hydroelectric power generation. This project investigated the effect of inlet conditions on a laboratory-scale ...
Graduate Attributes and Threshold Concepts: Are We Measuring What’s Important?
A great deal of work has been done within the engineering community to identify the threshold concepts that students must master in order to transform from novice to practitioner. At the same time, engineering regulatory ...
Experimental Measurements Of Far Field Cough Airflows Produced By Healthy And Influenza-Infected Subjects
An experimental study of cough airflow fields produced by subjects who had influenza-like illness was conducted. Particle image velocimetry (PIV) and hot wire anemometry (HWA) measurements were taken in the far-field ...
Computational Modelling Of Radiofrequency Cardiac Ablation To Study The Effect Of Cooling On Lesion Parameters
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a technique used to treat cardiac arrhythmias. It creates lesions in the heart by creating thermal damage. Due to limitations associated with in vivo as well as in vitro studies, computational ...
