Effects of Operating Conditions on Water Absorption Capacity of Superabsorbent Hydrogels
Superabsorbent hydrogels are three-dimensional networks of hydrophilic polymers that have an extraordinary ability to absorb and retain water. Therefore, they have been utilized in many applications such as disposal diapers, ...
Proton-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell Stack Model Parameters Estimation and Model Validation
A proton-exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) is a promising, clean, and efficient power device that converts the chemical energy stored in a fuel into electricity directly. Hydrogen is supplied from an external tank and ...
Bingham Fluid Flow in the Entrance Region of a Pipe
The isothermal laminar flow of a Bingham fluid in the entrance region of a circular pipe has been studied previously by many authors using different approaches. As current research stands, the momentum integral approach ...
Strengthening of Shear Deficient Beams with CFRP Laminates with Different Types of Anchorage Systems
Retrofitting and repairing deteriorating structures have been achieved using several techniques. Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete (RC) members in shear with externally bonded fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) plates and ...
Flexural Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Beams Strengthened with Externally Bonded Hybrid Systems
The demand for strengthening of aging reinforced concrete (RC) structures are continuously rising. Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) are the most widely used externally bonded-reinforcing (EBR) materials for strengthening ...
