Synthesis and Characterization of Two Component Alloy Nanoparticles
Alloying is an old trick used to produce new materials by synergistically combining at least two components. New developments in nanoscience have enabled new degrees of freedom, such as size, solubility and concentration ...
Calibration of Flush Air Data Sensing Systems Using Surrogate Modeling Techniques
In this work the problem of calibrating Flush Air Data Sensing (FADS) has been addressed. The inverse problem of extracting freestream wind speed and angle of attack from pressure measurements has been solved. The aim of ...
Catalytic processes simulated at nano-scale: Growth of graphitic structures and functionalized graphene explained
Key dynamic processes at nano-scale, such as graphene hydrogenation and fluorination, and carbon nanotube (CNT) growth, cannot be observed in situ in real time. Nevertheless, such processes can be studied through complementary ...
A Multiscale Model of the Enhanced Heat Transfer in a CNT-Nanofluid System
Over the last decade, much research has been done to understand the role of nanoparticles in heat transfer fluids. While experimental results have shown "anomalous" thermal enhancements and non-linear behavior with respect ...
AFM-Based Mechanical Nanomanipulation
Advances in several research areas increase the need for more sophisticated fabrication techniques and better performing materials. Tackling this problem from a bottom-up perspective is currently an active field of research. ...
