Sequential function approximation of the radiative transfer equation
Heat transfer in a radiatively participating medium involves higher coupling than is typical for pure conduction and/or convection problems. Consequently, standard discretizing techniques such as partitioning regions of a ...
Plasmonic Nanoparticle Laden Medium for Solar/Thermal Energy Storage
Nanofluids have become a popular way of increasing the efficiency in solar energy applications and enhancing the thermophysical properties of the fluid. This thesis contributes to the field of solar energy utilization by ...
Simulation of Shielding Materials against Galactic Cosmic Rays
Radiation is one of the most critical hazards for deep space missions. Among the sources of deep space radiation, the Galactic Cosmic Rays, which are composed of high energy ions travelling at relativistic speeds from ...
Analysis of a Liquid Droplet Radiator by Galerkin's method with an improved profile
The Liquid Droplet Radiator is a proposed lightweight radiator for the dissipation of waste heat generated by power plants in space. The hot working fluid is sprayed into space as coherent streams of tiny, discrete droplets, ...
Numerical Investigation of Medical Applications of Nanoparticles toward Tumor/Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment of
Almost a decade has passed ever since the first time nanoparticles were proposed to be used for tumor/cancer diagnosis and treatment. For tumor/cancer treatments, nanoparticles are usually engineered to be the photo-thermal ...
