An Experimental Investigation of R134a Clathrates with Liquid Additives
Thermal energy storage (TES) using phase change materials is one of the most effective solutions for energy conservation. The selection of a phase changing material (PCM) with different liquid additives could improve the ...
Added Mass Formulation For Fluid-Structure Interaction
Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) occurs due to interaction of multiple continuum fields. In our daily life, FSI is a common phenomenon. Birds flying in the air, leaves falling off the tree and waving flags are examples ...
Dynamic Analysis of Flexible Mechanisms with Clearance
This research is focused on studying the dynamic behavior of a four-bar mechanism with clearance. The presence of clearance in a revolute joint induces impacts between the journal and the sleeve. Therefore, it causes ...
Evaluation of an Integrated PTSC/Thermal Energy Storage System Using Nano-Fluid Particles
Daily increase in the use of electricity and fossil fuels in the world raises the need for a renewable source of energy to accommodate the needs and power requirements for different sectors. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) ...
Evaluation of a Cold Thermal Energy Storage System Using Alternative Refrigerants
This study provides a detailed comparison study between clathrate hydrate of R134a and R404a refrigerants in a direct contact thermal energy storage system. Numerous closed loop cycles using hydrate of each refrigerant ...
Transient Modeling of a New Solar Distillation Unit for Remote Areas
The concept of lack of fresh water in our daily life is hard to imagine in recent times with its increasing demand. Lack of fresh water supplies has become one of the major current societal concerns, especially for people ...
