Melting within a spherical enclosure
The problem considered is that of the melting of a phase change material, initially at its saturation temperature, which is enclosed within a spherical shell whose surface temperature is suddenly raised to some fixed value. ...
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 ...
