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 ...
Study of the condensation of metal vapor in a converging nozzle
The nucleation and growth of zinc vapor in converging nozzles are modeled. The temperature, pressure, velocity and growth distributions along the nozzle are calculated. The size distributions of the exiting particles are ...
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, ...
The vaporization of an electrically conducting droplet through the use of an external alternating magnetic field
A nondimensionalized model is developed for a falling, electrically conducting, spherical droplet undergoing equilibrium vaporization. Vaporization is caused by the presence of an external, alternating magnetic field. This ...
