Interfacial dynamics of liquid droplets and thermophysical property measurement
The interfacial dynamics of a viscous droplet immersed in a viscous medium are considered. The characteristic equation is derived using a normal-mode analysis, and solved for arbitrary, finite fluid properties. The cylinder ...
Carbon nanotubes thermal conductivity analysis using molecular dynamics simulations
Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations are used to determine the thermal conductivities of (5,5) single wall carbon nanotubes. By fixing the temperatures of opposing ends of an armchair single wall carbon nanotube ...
Near-Field Radiative Energy Exchange Analysis of Nanospheres and Nanorods: Space Waste Heat Recovery Device Design
In the present study, a theoretical method for sphere-to-sphere radiative heat exchange is implemented for silica, lithium fluoride, and arsenic triselenide nanospheres of equal and unequal radii. The method is extended ...
Processing of single-walled carbon-nanotube metal matrix composites and a finite element model for the process
In the present investigation, single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT or SWNT) reinforced titanium (Ti) matrix composites have been produced by powder metallurgy (PM) and induction heating methods. It has been found that a ...
Force and Heat Generation in a Conducting Sphere in an Alternating Magnetic Field
The interaction of an electrically conducting sphere with a time varying magnetic ﬁeld is useful in the study of "containerless" processing methods such as electromagnetic levitation melting. The fundamental quantities of ...
