Heat transfer of a single wall carbon nanotube
A non equilibrium molecular dynamics simulation was used to calculate thermal conductivity of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT). Effective thermal conductivity was calculated for the same SWNT surrounded by nitrogen ...
Design of a methanol to hydrogen micro-reformer for fuel cell applications
A new design for a microchannel methanol-steam reformer has been developed to provide power in conjunction with a micro fuel cell for a portable, low-power device. The design is optimized for low pumping power and rapid ...
An analytical model for near-infrared light heating of a slab by embedded gold nanoshells
Exposed to spectral and uniform light, a one-dimensional, conducting and radiatively participating medium due to embedded absorbing and scattering gold nanoshells is solved. P1 Approximation method is used to solve the ...
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 ...
