Heat conduction for dielectric thin films from the Casimir to diffusion limit
The heat transfer in electrically insulating thin film materials is predominantly governed by phonons and is accurately described when the phonon mean free path is either much smaller than the order of the thickness of the ...
Sequential function approximation of the radiative transfer equation
Heat transfer in a radiatively participating medium involves higher coupling than is typical for pure conduction and/or convection problems. Consequently, standard discretizing techniques such as partitioning regions of a ...
The Lorentz force and temperature distribution in a longitudinal electromagnetically levitated sample
Electromagnetic levitation, which can provide rapid heating and melting, homogeneity of melt and minimal specimen contamination, is an important branch of containerless processing. The longitudinal electromagnetic levitator ...
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, ...
Dynamics of deformed droplets: Thermophysical property measurement using acoustic levitation
A general theory for the dynamics of aspherical droplets useful to interpret frequency spectra more accurately for thermophysical property measurements was developed. The oscillations of a non-spherical droplet oscillating ...
