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 ...
Combined Convection of Packer Fluid Flow between Vertical Parallel Plates
Packer fluid whose function is to prevent or tremendously reduce the heat transfer rate which would occur from the production tubing area to the production casing region is being studied in recent decades because of its ...
Temperature of an Externally Heated Metallic Microparticle in a Phase Change Material
Phase change materials (PCMs) play a significant role in the field of thermal energy storage. The strength of PCM stems from their ability to keep a large amount of energy in a small temperature difference. In this study, ...
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 ...
Laminar Natural Convection of Power Law Fluids between Two Vertical Plates
Steady and laminar natural convection heat transfer and fluid flow for power law fluids in an open channel between two parallel vertical plates that is entering from the bottom and exiting from top is studied. For the ...
Effectiveness of Polymer Composites as Radiation Shield against Galactic Cosmic Rays
Currently spacecraft uses aluminum alloys for primary structures which do not provide sufficient radiation protection for both the spacecraft electronics and for the astronauts in cislunar space. This thesis evaluates the ...
