Analysis Of Thermal Losses In Air-Water Interfacial Solar Heating Systems
This paper reports a numerical analysis of solar-driven seawater desalination systems with two configurations: a floating photo-thermal film at the air-water interface with and without an insulation layer located beneath ...
Motion Of Pigments In Thin Paint Films
When thin paint layers are exposed to heat, evaporation of the solvent begins, and significant movement within the paint film occur, causing temperature and concentration gradients. A clear coat paint was used, which had ...
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 ...
Numerical Simulation of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer of the Supercritical Water in Different Fuel Rod Channels
The supercritical water-cooled reactor was proposed as one of the Generation IV nuclear systems. Although many research works on the fluid flow and heat transfer of supercritical water in circular channels have been ...
Buckling And Post Buckling Behavior For Unsymmetrical Laminates Part I: Curing Cycle
This is the first of two companion papers that examine the elastic buckling and post-buckling behavior of thin unsymmetric cross-ply laminates. When cured in a flat mold these panels possess two cylindrical equilibrium ...
Effects Of Unit-Cell Boundary Type On The Electromechanical Properties Of Randomly Distributed Multifunctional Composite Structures
The unit-cell composition of three-dimensional finite element models for 3-0 and 3-1 type polymer (PVDF) - ceramic (BaTiO3) and ceramic (PZT-7A) - ceramic (BaTiO3) structures are compared to determine the effects of fiber ...
Development of Absorbents with High Contact Area for Applications in Desiccant Coated Heat Exchanger
Desiccant coated heat exchanger (DCHE) is developed from the combination of desiccant absorbents and the conventional fin-tube heat exchanger. The performance of the DCHE is mainly due to the adsorption properties of the ...
Natural Frequencies Of Internally-Doubly-Tapered Laminated Composite Beams
In the present study, the free vibration response of symmetric thickness-and-width-tapered (doubly-tapered) laminated composite beams is investigated. Considering the continuous-plies-interspersed ply drop-off configuration, ...
Thermal Conductivity Of Advanced Architected Cellular Materials
Design Of Hard Compaction Rollers For Automated Fiber Placement On Complex Mandrel Geometries
This paper presents a methodology for designing hard compaction rollers for an automated fiber placement (AFP) head with a hot gas torch heating system for laying thermoplastic carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) tapes. ...
